Last week I was lucky to attend the Spring/Summer 2020 Blogger Fashion Event in Intu Milton Keynes and it did not disappoint. I have always loved fashion but the past few years its been hard to keep up because most of my clothes have delightful badges of honour spued on them. So, investing in me has not happened for a while. Over the past 6 months I have changed that, I now have clothes in my wardrobe that I do not wear around the children, like white jeans, beige jackets and white shirts!
This season is brings us floral's, high necks, mixed prints, lots of colour and plenty of midi dresses!When I arrived, I saw some wonderful women there that I have met on my blogging journey and some new faces which is always lovely. There were rails of clothes from different shops that I got to explore and here are some trends that they are loving this year.
Levi’s were loving the pastel 80s retro vibe. Light yellow and blues. Short, cute jackets that would be amazing with ‘mom’ jeans and trainers! They threw in some monochrome body suits and denim jackets too which are winners!
At Gap I focused on their jeans range for this year, one that was a big hit last year. A take on the ‘Mom’ jean but a bit looser on the thigh, that sits well and fitted on the waist. They showed me that they were keeping on their Gap original denim jackets but instead of having just the indigo colour they decided to do a range of two other colours.
As a mum I was drawn to the Gap Kids rail. The standout item for me was the denim jacket with the rainbow effect on the back. It was super cute for little ones. They also had the shirt baby grow which is a favourite. However, there was one special item that is very popular because of sustainability was their lime green raincoat that was made from recycled bottles! This is becoming more and more important to buyers now. Well done Gap!
I am a huge Fan of New Look (as are many!) so I was quick to check out the two rails they had to show us! The first was full of pastels and floral. Daisy inspired patterns, leather jackets, polka dots but most importantly they have a EcoVero – New Look Kind range and their moto is ‘For Better Future’. (containing Viscose Fibres). Their second rail was focusing on festival vibes and animal prints. Suede skirts, kaki trousers, sleeveless retro tops along with lightweight festival rain jackets! Not forgetting their beautiful footwear. Easy slip on sandals and chunky heels are back in!
Next up is somewhere that can make you feel sassy and sexy all in one! A place that every women at some point must visit. A place where you can be an angel too! Yes ladies, its Victoria Secret! It has never been a shop that I have felt intimidated in. It’s a gorgeous feminine place that caters for all women and sizes. This year they are loving silk, which is sexy but when you make a silk dressing grown with glorious waterfall and lace features, where can you go wrong! Floral blush bras, beautiful push ups and their signature stripped pyjamas were all winners for me!
Last but not least I had a wonderful time speaking to the ladies at Charles Clinkard shoes. They range many brands of such as Converse, Vans, Lelli Kelly, Clarks and Sketchers. They also have a shoe fitting service for children with no waiting time as you can book your slots before you arrive. That’s not all, when you go with your little ones to get their first shoes you receive a little memory box and 15% off voucher for their next pair! I will certainly be heading there to get Roisin’s first pair!
I have kindly been given a discount code for Charles Clinkard for my followers (In Store Only) If you visit them, quote ‘LIZ10’ you will get 10% off your purchase! This code is valid for 3 months, so get down there soon!
I really hope you enjoyed my little round up of Spring / Summer 2020 with INTU and all participating shops. I know it’s hard to avoid that kids sections because the children’s clothes are so wonderful, (that’s where I spend most of my money!) but mums matter too so try, maybe once a month to treat yourself!
Thank you very much to Perception PR.
