As soon as I saw the Richard Allan collection in H&M I knew I needed to get this outfit. I have always been a huge fan of sixties fashion, I used to have my own vintage fashion business and I love the bold prints and styles.
If you haven't heard of Richard Allan before he was responsible for creating iconic silk scarves in the 1960's with fabulous bold, abstract prints, becoming the 'it' scarves of the decade. It's fabulous to see his daughter Cate Allan carrying on his legacy whilst adding her own vibrant style.
H&M describes the collection as
"Abstract, avant-garde design in high octane colour. H&M’s latest collaboration celebrates the legacy of iconic scarf designer Richard Allan with a contemporary new collection."
This polo neck would look equally great with black jeans or leather trousers this Winter.
This outfit is my new favourite and who says women with big boobs and curves can’t wear full on pattern! I would have shied away from wearing this previously because we’re constantly told what we should or shouldn’t wear. I say wear what you want if it makes you feel good.
I never used to like wearing pleated skirts but I've realised they are so versatile. This skirt would look cool dressed down with white trainers and a t-shirt as well as adding heels and pretty vest top for a night out.
I also bought this day dress and pencil skirt along with a blouse from their collection. I can't remember the last time I went for more than one piece but its clothes I know I will get so much wear from across all the seasons. I've already had so many compliments when I've worn them too. It's not surprising that some of the collection sold out so quickly.
I like the length of this dress as I think it would look good over leggings. I'd probably add a belt to it as a curvy woman I like to add some definition to my waist.
A huge thank you to Charlotte Nelson Photography who kindly agreed to take these fabulous images whilst we were both at a recent Yorkinstameet networking event. It was such a great opportunity to see behind the scenes at Castle Howard whilst they were preparing for their dazzling Christmas opening. I can't wait to go back and see what it looks like this week. Watch this space!
Keep being fabulous! x
