I’m off for a child-free spa weekend and we’re going to a trendy restaurant in Liverpool on Saturday night! So, what to wear? My go to bible for such a moment is Grazia. It’s perfect for the time I have available, I can quickly pick up on the latest trends and feel inspired. A quick word about “trends” … I used to dislike trends with a passion and found it an overwhelming part of fashion design, trying to anticipate the next trend and keep on top of the ever changing styles. However, I’ve relaxed a bit and I now use them to give me a bit of guidance and actually, they can be useful for limiting my choices rather than complicating them. I just don’t get hung up on them anymore or worry if I’m not following every change … (thanks yoga!;)

So I had flick through Jan 18th copy and found a few images that inspired me … trendspot … long layers, wide leg pants, cropped tops and bold stripes. ¬†Then a rummage through my collection of “clothes to do something with one day” …. here’s the result, before and after, with a couple of work in progress pics.
