Summer colours

By Sarah Redman

This lovely little post contains a few outfits for my friend Georgia’s (of Life’s little Ponderings) 20th birthday!

I am loving this sunny weather and so are my girls. So for G’s birthday BBQ and night out we all chose summer brights for our outfits – sorry there are no full length photos (we may have been more focused on the Pimms than the photos).

From L to R: Sarah Redman, Alicia Berman (AB), Georgia Plummer (GP)

I wore my new patterned crop top from New Look (Blue Tribal Print Crop Vest £5.99), AB wore a simple red cami from Miss Selfridge, while birthday girl GP wore a yellow tee from ASOS (Petite top in texture £22.00) and stunning a statement necklace from Zara (retailing between £19.99 & £29.99).

My outfit was completed with a nude body con skirt from H&M and wooden chunky heals from Clarks. AB wore a white skort also from Miss Selfridge (Origami skort £30.00) and her shoes were nude heals from Russell and Bromley. GP competed her look with a floral patterned skort from ASOS (Premium skort in bright floral £35.00) and some awesome wedges from Topshop (Wish Buckle Espadrilles Black £42.00). Yes they are on my wish list so I knew them straight away!

Super Superga

By Sarah Redman

The sun is officially out and for once it doesn’t seem to be going away. Yay.

So I have take the bold step of putting my boots away – even if they are still within easy reach and out come the summer shoes. I’m that person who is permanently cold even when the sun is shining so I have left the sandals alone but instead have dug out the Superga.

My Superga are only a year old but already looking a bit tatty, covered in an array of scuffs, alcohol and nail polish (don’t ask) – I really should take care of the more! My lovely pair are their 2750 Cotu Classic’s in grey sage, retailing at £45.00. These shoes were a great purchase last summer, I can’t believe I’ve never had a pair before they are so comfy and go with everything.

My lovely shoes – you know i’m rocking the spotty socks…

The brand Superga, known as ‘the people’s shoes of Italy’ is over 100 years old and focuses mainly on its classic 2750 style, with various remixes and fashion designs each season. It also has an impressive celebrity backing with everyone from Alex Chung through to this seasons Suki Waterhouse endorsing or wearing a pair.

So in true Sarah style I am eyeing up another pair and I thought I would share my top three contenders for this summer with all our lovely readers:

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic – Ottani – £45.00

First up are these great teal colour, for my wardrobe this colour will work well with my style and wardrobe full of summer clothes.

Superga 2750 Cotu Classic – Dark Bordeaux – £45.00

Secondly, these are just because a bordeaux or burgundy is just a very me colour – so I just love them.

0bc99736e98aa04151bc1febb074274dSuperga 2750 Cotu Classic – Fresh Salmon – £45.00

Lastly, I’m in the summer frame of mind and this fresh salmon hue is a great way to add some colour in your wardrobe even if you are not ready to let go of your jumpers. It’s also a really fun colour!

What do you think of my top three, do you like their classic styles or is it their metallics or animal print ranges for you? Let us know and leave a comment below, Tweet us @thesarahsblog or post on our Facebook page

Is green the new blue?

By Sarah Redman
Well it might just be, at least for this year… Because let’s face it, we can’t seem to escape that elusive bathroom blue them (sometimes complete with those rubber duckies), so why should it be any different for swim wear which is just as closely associated with water?
Maybe it’s just a passing trend or I have green visors on, but I am loving a touch of the good old grassy colour on swim wear this year.
The boyfriend is also loving his green, with his new polo Ralph Lauren swim shorts.

Whilst I am more influence by the H&M Beyonce advertising campaign with my green tie dye bikini.
