AD – This post is written as part of my paid partnership with centre:mk but everything I write is of my own choosing and all content is my own personal thoughts.

Spring – it’s here. Let’s ignore the driving winds and the showers, it has landed and we are bouncing beyond the dark days at last!

With this new dawn comes truckloads of new stock in the stores and there are some absolute corkers to be had.

Drawing so much inspiration from the catwalks, taking the unworkable and using a street style element to give trends the wearable twist, the high street has gone large with bows, polka dots, colour block two-pieces and boiler suits.

Pinks, nudes and blue hues are going nowhere, in fact they are out in force!

March is a trans seasonal time but when summer styles are slowly breaking through, the most shoppable pieces are hot off the Instagram grid and in the stores at centre:mk right now.

Store fronts are keen to pack some sunshine into the spring windows. Customers are ripe and ready to spend their cash on summer frocks. It’s so great to lose the layers and the dark hues and finally embrace the bold brights and summer sorbets.

My fave picks from my shopping trip around centre:mk this week have been these crackers from Next and John Lewis.  If you are not wearing a pastel colour block suit are you even living? (lol!)

Make up trends to compliment summer skin are exciting, with the latest palettes dropping from Charlotte Tilbury and Urban Decay which I bought from John Lewis and House of Fraser respectively.

One make up tip I always pass on is to use Benefit lippy, benebalm on your cheeks as well as your lips. One stripe either side and then blend with a flat top brush for a dewy, rosy cheeked look. Perfect for spring/summer.

So I hope that has given you plenty to be going on with, let me know if you come up with any must haves, you know I’m always looking for a great outfit!

With the opening of the new Primark store imminent – 16th April, get it in the diary – we are truly spoilt for choice at cmk with the top trends for the season.

Until next time lovelies. xxxx
