I'm sharing my post with Laura Ashley today. I have long been a fan of the brand and I can still remember my first ever visit at the Kings Road store when I was just around ten years old. My house host's a lot of the brand's homeware (I particularly like their lighting) and I have always found the fashion good quality and stylish. So I'm very proud to be featuring on the Laura Ashley blog.
Choosing something from the new collection was a tough choice, and you must take a look at the site to see all the latest beautiful prints for Spring/Summer. Divided into sections the romantically named collections of Vintage Romance - English Toile - Homespun - Simple Life and Terracotta
I have chosen this Blush Pink ruffled edged sweater from the Vintage-Romance collection and I fell in love with these trousers That are flared and my favourite style. The outfit combined is feminine with a masculine edginess to the outfit.
I love the frilled or fluted sleeve trend that's around at the moment and have had a job finding the right length for my petite/short arms. This sweater has a frill at the cuff, but it's well fitted at the wrist so I can get away with this.
The trousers are like a tweed effect but not tweed. A speckle in the material makes them look like this but they are actually light in weight and not bulky. I love the masculine cut of these trousers. They have a slight pleat in the front, but still flattering on the tummy and I think they would be great office wear with a white shirt. They are so comfortable!
If you want to grab a pair, they are on special offer at the moment Here reduced from £75.00 down to £37.00 so be quick!
Are you loving the Ruffle trend that is everywhere at the moment? I feel at my age, even though I love all the frills and ruffles you have to be careful. That' s why I chose the masculine style trousers to tone it down a bit. Oh, and excuse the windswept look! I was at a local park with my daughter and the grandchildren. A very windy day indeed. My Grandson was telling me where to stand and how to have the photo taken - very bossy!
And made me promise that I would publish this one on the blog! I look like I'm going to be Birdnapped!
