Hands up who is currently consumed by watching Wimbledon? I’m so guilty,I’m currently watching Del Potro winning, and I can generally say that I’ll be here in front of the TV for next week or so, with a side of strawberries and cream, a jug of Pimm’s, while cheering on my favourite Serena Williams, if the rain every lets her play. With that in mind, I thought I would dedicate this week’s Friday Favourites to inspiring Wimbledon Whites, so you can bring tennis off the court for a chic summery look. I have everything from a simple shift dress to a
So it’s April, that means the weather should be getting better right? Yes, I’m living in the same hope as well, which is why I’ve decided that this week’s Friday Favourites is dedicated to my spring wishlist, which is very floral based, I’m going through a phase. I’ve put together a mixture of pieces, another cold shoulder top, I’m obsessed, statement to subtle florals, as well as a few neutral basics, to wear with those statement pieces, and a 90’s vibes denim jacket with lots of badges on. Basically, this is a what I want to be wearing this spring.
The words Fashionista Barbie and sportswear isn’t a regular deal, yeah I exercise, yeah I like pretty workout clothes, but I’m one of those people that generally opts for black, black and more black especially when we are talking about something in Lycra – so designer sportswear collections generally pass me by. Well that is until these amazing pieces from the second season of Mary Katrantzou’s collaboration with Adidas dropped into my inbox.
I have to admit I don’t think I saw the first one, I know call myself a fashion blogger, and after seeing these beauties I think I missed out as I’m sure it was just as fabulous, but if you put together technicolour, crazy prints, 80’s workout vibes with tennis you know you are on to a winner, and wouldn’t it be so fun if Serena Williams turned up to Wimbledon in this kit – it’s kind of white right?!?

Sneakers, hi-tops or trainers, whatever you want to call these casual flats you are going to see a lot more of them this year. Designers including Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Chloe and Miu Miu have introduced them into their sports luxe inspired collections with sparkling results that have led to very long waiting lists. Don’t get me wrong I love a statement heel but sometimes a comfortable flat is just what you’re after, if you are fed up with brogues and ballet pumps then I suggest you try out an old-school sneaker!!
