I love this Ted Baker Hafsa Pants. The belt detail is nice but to switch it up replace with a red skinny belt or silk scarf to give it a more riviera-style spring look.
Get the sexy 50s secretary look with this Paperbag skirt from ASOS and wear it to the office when you land your first job out of uni.Keep it retro and summery in this dotted circle skirt from forever21
Two options that would work best if you prefer to wear a simple black skirt or trousers.
Covered button blouse from Warehouse
Victorian ruffle sheer blouse from Forever21

Ivanka Trump's dress is so adorable. It's day appropriate and could also be great for the office wardrobe. This is a most unique take on the 'bow detail' trend i've seen so far. LOVE IT!!

Love these high-waisted shorts from warehouse. I have one very similar but I hardly get to wear it in these climes since there was no summer last year and looks a little uncertain if there might be one now.This 'Johnny loves Rosie' bracelet is from my last post and is so appropriate for this one too. Again, would be great with neutral wide leg pants or retro light wash denim.
Tucked in shirt or tank top and a killa pair of platforms and you're ready to go in these 18th amendment Colbert ‘Speak easy’ high waisted flared jeans.
I saved my favourite till the end. I don't know why i like it so much! This dress is from Kookai and i think it costs like £100 something so i shall be staying well away and just admire it from a distance, lol!
So there you have it. Can you hear the 'Charlie's Angel' theme tune in your head yet?

Spruce up a simple dress with this cuff, i think it looks a little vintage too. Isharya is apparently the new cult jewellery brand in the US, I don't know about that but most of the pieces I've seen are soooo divine.
Check out another piece from the Isharya collection. The price tag (£195) is a big pain in my neck but if you can afford it and like something more unique, why not!! Would look great with a pair of grecian/gladiator style sandals.
This raffia bangle from H&M takes inspiration from this season's Global/ethnic trend. Perfect for the summer!
Last but by no means least are Lanvin's 'Geometric Resin' Bangles. These are great for everyday wear and you can also channel the Safari trend with these. £120

Like her grown up and glam look
Solange Knowles rocking the americana trend at Cochella. I want Gladiators :-)
So simple. It doesn't look like she's made a big effort but somehow she still manages to look great. Damn you Eva (lol!)

This box clutch by Anya Hindmarch is perfect. It's simple, sleek, shiny box shape is a homage to the 50s.
A simple ribbed effect bangle from accessorize.

I picked these two for when mommy and daddy need a date night, assuming your kids are considerate enough to let you have some time to yourselves :-). The dress on the left is the old faithful LBD. Its Osman Yousefzada for mango and the metallic gold racerback is a different take on the classic LBD, its hot! Vera Wang is one of my favourite designers and she never disappoints. The shape, colour and length of the next dress creates timeless elegance but the ruffle trim and faceted-stone appliqué at the bust keeps it interesting.
Comfortable shoes are a must-have if you're doing the school run... in fact just keeping up with your super-energetic kid(s).
These classic ballerina pumps are a wardrobe staple and are a great everyday shoe which go with almost anything. Topshop £25
The gladiator sandal is great for the summer and handy when going for a casual look, I would pair it with a maxi dress or denim shorts. £30 from Oasis
Bright colours are all the rave this season but if you are not brave enough to head-to-toe, then these should help. KG by Kurt Kurger £75
aww....I love these super cute Rupert Sanderson pumps. The oversized satin bows give it a playful air and the burnished gold metallic leather is ultra stylish.
Finally, my favourite fashion item, the handbag! All the young mothers I know always carry so much with them so I have found the perfect bags.

Pauric Sweeney day bag. A leather bag thats sturdy and well-crafted.
