Getting fruity

Standard

I loves a quirky print as much as the next girl. Actually that’s a lie, I loves a quirky print much much more than the next girl, like LOADS more.

Birds, animals, flowers, they all are about, but particularly at the moment I’m liking fruit prints.

Cherries, bananas, watermelon, raspberries, pineapples, strawberries, pears and apples. They’re all out there ready to be picked!

So make sure you get at least one of your five a day with my pick of the best,,,

1. Cherry print dress – Coleen Rooney at Very

There we all were thinking that we knew for sure that Coleen Rooney had no taste (or at least no eyes, look who she’s married to) but to my delight, I found this cutie beauty for £49, and it’s summery-er than a jug of Pimms. It is fit, and I want it.

2. Watermelon print vest – MissGuided

MissGuided have made my little eyes water at the sight of this watermelon number. Get down with your bad juicy self in this sheer vest – available in black or white, and all for a purse friendly £14.99. Tuck in.

3. Pineapple print skirt – Yumi at House of Fraser

This pineapple print skirt is not for the faint hearted, but I just love how lovely and summery this is. I’d be keeping it simple with a white vest, tan sandals and layered gold necklaces. The skirt speaks for itself really, saying “hello, I have pineapples on me”. Bottom heavy girls are advised to proceed with caution with this one though. Yumi have a range of clothes with other fruit prints like lemon and apple. Check em out.

4. Apple print top – Select Fashion

This funky apple print reminds me of oldschool Motel clothing, when their USP was kooky fabric designs and not to use as little material as possible. It’s also in my current fave colour and is a ruddy snip at just £8. Available in black/grey and camel/black.

If a full on fruit salad about your person is just too much for you then there are a whole host of nice accessories of the fruity persuasion that you can purchase. As ever, here’s my pick…

Top row, L-R: pear headband, £7 Topshop; Fruit earrings, £6, H&M; Apple neckscarf, £7, Dorothy Perkins; Apple hairband, £7, Accessorize.

Bottom row, L-R: Pineapple fan, £4.50, Accessorize; Pear overnight bag, £39.95, Fruit Tree at Campus Gifts; Fruit charm bracelet, £7.99, Anderson & Webb.

And that’s it. Get fruity. And that’s an order.

Just a little quickie post!

Don’t know if you’ve seen Russell Kane’s latest squeeze, but I caught a glimpse of her (Charlotte Austin) in an amazing sequin dress for some premiere they were at together and thought ‘Hmm, I know I’ve seen that somewhere before!’

So my nerdy little mind hit Google and I revisited all the websites I’d been doing fashion research on recently. And lo and behold, I was right, I had seen it! And here it is: £49 from Rare (a new fave) – Christmas party worthy? I think so. And just loving that peter pan collar.

So go, people, go to Rare and buy! (NB, famous boyfriend not included.)
