I like to embrace  fashion trends, sometimes they are not for me, but other times they are right up my street. I’m not a huge fan of  big prints or florals but I am loving the current trend of embroidered tops that  are out there on the High Street at the moment.

You don’t necessarily have to be a fan of the boho style to follow this trend. There are so many choices in stores at the moment, not necessarily with bold and big prints but with small ones too.

Here are some of my favourite embroidered tops

ZARA

Zara is  my go to place in the High Street. They always get the latest trends and recreate them at an affordable price. This is a gorgeous top combining embroidery and lace. With short bell sleeves it will be perfect for the summer months. I love the floaty, delicate style of it and it’s something I’d wear a lot when on holiday.

Every season I like getting a couple of transitional pieces that will see me from spring into summer.  Summery pieces, but with long sleeves, or thicker materials that will still look good  and keep me warm at this time of the year.

I got this top in Next a couple of weeks ago and I am sure this will be one of those items I will be wearing quite a lot from now until summer.

As a mother of two young children I´m always interested in discovering new clothing brands. I must say, I find it a bit difficult to find boy´s clothes that are not boring.  I can´t understand why boy´s clothes can not be colourful and fun, just like girls clothes are. This is one of the reasons why I was really excited when I first came across La Zebra ,  they have cute, original clothes perfect for young kids and mums.

Spring is finally on it’s way, we can now wave goodbye to jumpers and lots of layers and start thinking of lighter clothes. If you are a fashion lover like me, you have probably noticed the latest trend in the shops; ruffles and tie fronts.

Ruffles are everywhere at the moment, not just on shirts, but on dresses, tops, skirts and even trousers. It might not be a trend for everybody but ruffles look great and they add a bit of fun to formal dressing and work wear.

If you work in an office environment it’s always nice to wear something different and ruffles on shirts are perfect. I’ve got a few pieces recently but this is probably my favourite. It’s a formal shirt from H&M. It’s quite flattering, smart enough to wear to work but equally good to wear with jeans or dress down.

Let me tell you something about me, not only I am short, but my legs are disproportionately short compared to the rest of my body. Yes, it’s true. Buying trousers is always a bit of a mission and even petite ranges are sometimes a bit too long for me.

I’ve recently been on the search for a new pair of jeans and this has made me realize how it’s not always easy if you are petite. After trawling lot’s of shops and trying different styles and brands, I finally got the perfect pair in Marks & Spencer, one place I didn’t even realize did short length jeans.

Here are some of my favourite places to buy petite jeans:
