Unique ss14

I know, we're approaching Christmas and it's freezing outside. Everyone is thinking about holiday parties and jumpers with snowmen on them but, if I'm honest, I've mentally moved over to spring already.

I feel like I've been drowning in a sea of photos of turtlenecks and chunky knits and I'm a little tired of it. So, for today I'm switching gears and diving headfirst into the wonder that was Topshop Unique's Spring 2014 show because it totally embodies warmth and sunshine - which is what I'm craving at the moment.

The models were all bare legged with loose wavy hair, making them look like they'd just stepped off the beach. There was hardly a heel insight, instead everyone donned flat white slides like the retro adidas ones (minus the stripes). The silhouette was baggy and oversized which I loved. 

There were a few bold prints but in general the looks that stood out most were the ones that came in crisp whites and denim. There was a blue jacket with leather detailing which was to die for and a grey cross-back top which has already got me searching for my racerback bra. The thing I like about going to the Topshop show (besides the yummy nibbles and celebrity spotting) is that it's a show with pieces I can actually afford to buy.

At the top of my wish list is the cream poncho like top with embroidery and tassels. How sweet would it be worn with a pair of ripped up denim shorts and black Birkenstocks? Yes please, that's my summer uniform is sorted.
