It seems like an appropriate day today to post these pictures. Pictures I took at the Next Spring Summer '13 Press event - last October!! Spring has been a very long time coming to us this year but I think the weather has finally broken and we are getting the odd spell of sunshine every now and again. So it seems appropriate to finally share with you some seasonal trends. And right around now I will be heading down to London by train to attend another Next event, but more on that another time.
For now I would like to share with you some of my favourite pieces that will be hitting / or have hit our shops already. As per usual, whenever I attend Next events I am always firmly drawn to both the fashion accessories and home pieces over anything else. Don't get me wrong, there were some amazing items of clothing too - one sleek lace maxi dress caught my eye that I unfortunately didn't manage to take a very good picture of. But I think accessories will always be my first love as they are relatively inexpensive and Next always have some very on-trend pieces to choose from.
Similarly, I rave each time about the home-ware styling at the Next events. I feel like a kid in a candy shop, there is so much to look at. Areas are set up of furniture and accessories which really compliment each other and I come away with so many ideas for my own home.
