The weather has finally warmed up and it is time to wear cute crops and add some bolder Summer tones. The top, shorts and slides are all new additions to my wardrobe. I fell in love with the natural vibe of the cropped button up. It has been perfect for days at the beach. You may have already spotted me wearing it to the beach over on Instagram. The orange shorts make an excellent pop of colour to balance out the popular trend of neutrals this Summer. How good does the colour look?! Shop the look at the bottom of this post. There are some similar styles as well as alternatives with different price points. My favourite gold coin necklace is also on sale for $5.00 below, which is definitely worth a look.
Headbands not just a pretty accessory, it is an avenue for the illusion of a well put together outfit. The trends this season provide a sense of regal taste and stylish expression. It is undeniable headbands are all about making a statement for SS19 and AW19/20. Jewelled headbands are not a new trend, however, they now display much larger jewels and copious amounts of embellishments. Knotted/turban headbands continue to appear with bolder sizes, colours and patterns. One of my favourites perhaps is the more petite style of knotted headbands delicately adorned with small pearls. Some of my favourites of the pearl style are from Divine Avenue and there are so many different colours to choose from. The headbands themselves have also become larger. Padded headbands provide a more polished look. I will be completely honest and say padded headbands are not to my taste, however, if you are loving the trend I have also added some options below.
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring finally and it is time to transition your wardrobe. There are so many gorgeous neutral pieces popping up ready for Summer. I am calling it now neutrals will be one of the biggest trends of the SS19 season. Do you remember how popular black and white feeds were on Instagram? Well neutral ones are showing up everywhere. Be prepared for a lot of neutrals. I have some of my current favourites ready to update your wardrobe below. My giveaway with a voucher for The Iconic closes tonight over on Instagram and Facebook. Links to both of those are at the bottom of this post. I can't wait to see who wins!

If you know me, you'll know how much I love Disney. I have been incredibly excited about all of the live action versions that Disney has created and are coming soon. Mink Pink has actually put together a Lion King collection. They are so beautiful and just make my heart so happy! There are a lot more pieces than I have included in this post, but these are my favourites. Also hint, hint family members these might make a great birthday present haha. My favourite is definitely the best prepared tee at the top of this post, but I'll admit the grey sweater below is so damn cute too!

Happy Thursday. I have never been someone who is good at hair. I can't even braid. The limit of my skills is curling my hair or platting. The current hair trend makes it easier to have cute hair without all the effort. The range of hair slides, scrunchies and scarves is amazing right now. Not to mention, all the EOYS's at the moment. Colette currently has 20% off site wide using the code SAVE20. Some of my favourites from Colette and other stores are below. The vintage vibes are incredible.
I have been searching for the perfect accessory for this season. I know when looking at all of the gorgeous designs from NYFW sky blue continually made appearances. When trying to find similar styles on my own, there were bags that just didn't suit the season. There were incredible shoes, but completely unaffordable. When I became an ambassador of Capitola watches I was super excited to find this faux velvet watch with (obviously my favourite) rose gold hardware. Everything in rose gold is always so much prettier, isn't it? Unlike the shoes I mentioned earlier, their watches are completely affordable! Yes Capitola's watches are cheaper than MVMT and Daniel Wellington, but with similar clean lines and classic styles. You can use MYVIOLETDELIGHTS15 to make them even cheaper again if you want too. What's more important is how can we style this?
There's nothing more exciting than fabulous new season pieces. Bags this season are all about elegant details and texture. The woven handbag trend has continued into larger, more structured pieces for those of you who are entering Spring. Faux animal print and a snakeskin texture adds the perfect detail to an Autumn look. As for colours black, nude and natural tones are an obvious choice, but for a pop of colour try sky blue or a bold yellow.
I hope you are having an incredible weekend. My favourite part about the weekend is that you can wear incredibly cute Summer pieces that you can't wear during the week. I know in 2016 I talked about balloon sleeves and puffy sleeves as a trend. They are back again this year, but like anything else bigger! No really, the sleeves are bigger this year. Whether you are just about to head into Spring or Autumn puffy sleeves are a must have for your transitional season wardrobe. Spring means you finally get to wear floral crops with puffy sleeves while Autumn means big sleeves making an elegant statement whilst layering. I have been waiting for some of the more affordable brands to begin stocking puffy sleeve pieces. Below I have some more affordable options with a few splurge pieces as well. Some are almost sold out, so I highly recommend getting in quickly.
