One of my blog goals I set for 2017 was to produce more fashion related content on Cate Renée, and whilst that has been a bit of a fail, there’s no time like the present to get started – love a cliche! I’ve been wanting to share more on my love for fashion, shopping and styling outfits. I can’t tell the countless nights I’ve spent going through my wardrobe, reorganising it and pulling different pieces together to create new looks. The weather is finally starting to heat up in Perth and I’m mentally preparing myself for those scorching days and balmy nights to come. I can honestly say I’ve never been this excited for spring/summer fashion than I have this season. This year the big trends seem pretty daring and quite frankly what my wardrobe needs – I’m a big time hoarder of navy and white striped items and I own far too many of them. Although I would consider stripes an all year ‘round style staple, some of my favourite on trend items this spring/summer include: the colour red and LOTS of it, eyelets, tassels and pom poms, ditsy prints, all the ruffles (big and small), basket/straw bags, embroidery, bows, frayed denim, slides and mules. Below I’ve put together a collection of bits and bobs I’ve recently purchased or things I’m currently lusting over.
