I’ve never been a fan of the chilly temperatures, always a Summer girl at heart. So I have been stocking up on some accessories to pair with my Spring/Summer mood. Some of these items can also be teamed together with a Winter wardrobe, so it makes it more economical whilst enhancing your look all together.

The new season pieces at Lovisa range from pastel geometrics to metallic golds and dramatic blacks. You will also notice edgier pieces with spikes, big colourful stones and statement cuffs. The heavier the stack on your wrists, the better!

Here are a few items I picked up in the Perth city store last week, just because…

Pastel geometrics mixed with gold, it screams ‘Spring Fling’!

This is a spike & crystal necklace, beautiful and edgy at the same time

These came in a pack of three, they are plastic dress rings. I like to wear a different colour combination on my digits each day.

I really hope they will open an online store soon because I so happened to be in the city that day, and it is a very rare trip for me! Little presents in the mail are so much nicer :)

If you can’t get yourself into a Lovisa store right now, you can find some Lovisa items at The Iconic. The Iconic is currently offering $10 off minimum spend of $50 using the codeCFAF10M at the checkout (promotion ends 9th August 2012). They also offer free overnight shipping, so you will get a visit from the postie pretty much the next day if you place your order before 10pm (Sydney-siders) or 2pm (rest of Australia).

Do you like any of the new season trends? What accessories will you be wearing?

Pastels have really come back in a BIG way! Every where I look this trend seems to be staying put. It must be the fresh, airy feel about wearing a paler colour that makes you feel relaxed and that you are constantly on holiday. Unfortunately Australia is one season behind, so we won’t truly enjoy the pastel shades until Spring/Summer 2012.

Lime Crime is following up with this trend in their new pressed eyeshadow palette, Palette D’Antoinette. Inspired by the late French Queen, Marie Antoinette. It comes in 5 delicious pastel hues (reminds me of sweet, soft macaroons), with their own unique name that blend luxuriously together:

Royal Flush (Pastel Pink Matte)

Absinthe-Minded (Pistachio Matte)

Macarooned (Peach Matte)

Ribbonesque (Lavender Matte)

Mercurious (Silver Metallic)

The palette is vegan friendly and cruelty free. It comes in a signature Lime Crime purple tin case. It will be sold for $34.99 on the 1st of May. If it gains popularity like the China Doll palette, it will be sold out before you know it! So get in early to nab your own Palette D’Antoinette.

For those who are residing in Australia, Makeupnet will be stocking this palette. But it should become available mid year. Join their facebook page to stay in touch with updates on make up.

How will you be wearing pastels this Spring/Summer 2012?
