River Island SS14 Collection

The beginning of a new year can mean so many different things. To some people it is the prospect of a new beginning and a fresh new start. To me it simply means that my favourite time of year is approaching. My beloved summer time ♥ 

The excitement I have for my favourite season has already been kick-started by several high-street stores who have released their SS14 collection previews. The most recent one being River Island. Okay so I regularly (well more like daily tbh) check the River Island website and I noticed that instead of primarily promoting their sale, which it did do last night, their homepage now features an introduction to their SS14 collection. After oohing and aahing for a good ten minutes at their new arrivals and new season lookbooks I knew I just had to share it with you guys. Taa-Dah!

If I had to choose three favourite looks they would be: Posh Pastels, Sports Mono and Tribal Grunge. All of which are gorgeous and definitely looks that I will use as a source of inspiration and attempt to recreate in the near future.
  • Posh Pastels - I love wearing pastel colours during summer as they look amazing against a sun-kissed tan and really helps to show it off. I definitely think that this is a look that people would think you have paid more for as it screams out elegance. I just love how delicate and flowy this outfit is. Grr! There's so much I love about it. I mean look how effortlessly the lightweight jacket falls on the model. I want need it.
  • Sports Mono - I absolutely love the combination of black and white as I think the contrast between the two looks effortless and really helps to define an outfit. I'm sure you can tell from my previous OOTD blog posts that I've definitely been enjoying the monochrome trend as of late so the Sports Mono look is right up my street.
  • Tribal Gunge - In my December Favourites video (click here to view) I stated that I love anything that is African inspired and in my Haul video (click here to view) I more or less said that my fashion sense is going through a grungy stage. So for River Island to combine my two recent fashion loves is AMAZING!
