Last week I headed to Chelsea to the Laura Ashley head office for their spring/summer17 preview. One of my favourite parts of blogging is getting to go look at lovely fashion and interiors. And I love Laura Ashley. I'm not overly girly, but I do enjoy florals and pinks. If I wasn't married and living with mucky children, I can imagine living somewhere full of flowery wallpaper, a pink armchair with candles all around. Hmmm.
For now, I am making do with lovely accents. I was especially taken with the blush. Even Husband can't argue with a little bit of light pink. And team it with grey for a cool, Scandi vibe. Speaking of grey, I saw some grey candles that looked fab. And only when I got close did I realise that they weren't real. Perfect when you have small children and you don't want to worry about them burning themselves.
Although I love autumn fashion, I saw some beautiful spring/summer pieces from Laura Ashley. There was lots of lovely lace, brocades and linen. I also noticed an abundance of blue. I basically wear blue and black on a rotation, so this really appealed to me. I'll enjoy my knits and velvets for another couple of months, but then I'm coming for the cotton dresses and lacy tops. Hooray for spring/summer17!
I was invited to the spring/summer preview but was under no obligation to blog about it. I just wanted to share some of the lovely things I saw.
