In my last post, I thought I’d create a new category for the blog (Dealing With Grime One Day At A Time), and thinking about it, I realised I wanted to do another, so here we have Friday Style. A short and sweet post about something that’s either caught my eye, something I’m loving at the moment, or an idea or trend I want to explore more.
This one was prompted by a recent trip to Primark, and also an article I read about current fashion trends. I’ve mentioned it a couple of times before, but a lot of retailers that are predominantly fashion, but also have homewares (think Primark, Next, M&S, Matalan, George etc.) will often showcase products that reflect current clothing trends.
One thing I was reading about with clothing for Spring/Summer is bold, bright colours. And I think it’s no surprise that we’re seeing some bolder home accessories out there. But what I especially loved were these two faux plant holders, the blue rhino, and pink elephant, with their little faux succulents. And why do I love them so much? Well, a little while back I painted these:
I just did these two. A pink elephant and a blue rhino. Can you believe it?! I love it when things like this happen. I saw the two faux planters online and was like, yes! I’m so ahead of the trends! Haha. I did try and find them when I went into Primark recently, but alas, they were nowhere to be seen I’ll keep my eyes out next time I’m in there though. They’re £6.00 each, and hopefully if you like them, you’ll find them easier to get hold of than me!
So that’s it for the first Friday Style post! Hope you enjoyed. As ever, I would really appreciated it took the time to let me know what you did or didn’t like, and leave any suggestions for me in a comment below, and I’ll be back with another post soon.
For now, with love,
