Winter to summer

I am so sick of winter now, I say this every year about this time after christmas. I think this is mainly because christmas is over and we look forward to the new seasons clothing, as much as i have loved the cape coats, aviator jackets, oversized blazers and furs of the winter I think its time to shed these layers and welcome in shorts and vests back to our lives once more. One thing i have loved about winter, which im sure il continue to use throughout next year is my Topshop cape coat, fur collar, leather seams, and yet still warm! I have not been without it this winter. 
Topshop cape coat- made my winter TOASTY!

I for one cannot wait for festival fashions, lighter colouring and sun glasses!
So what to decide? A pair of classic aviators? or go for the oversized look? Personally I prefer the oversized really exaggerated feel, but there are so many choices and styles around now and for affordable prices it means theres more chance to try out different styles..

I study Fashion buying, one of our projects recently was to make an outfit for spring summer 2011. Pattern cutting is not my strong point and i wont lie the long hours spent sat at a sewing machine is far from glamorous! However i was fairly pleased with the over all outcome- I made a crop with easy shorts. I think if i was making these again i would definitely do high waisted shorts as i think they'd be slightly more flattering with the crop. Whilst im here, big shout out to my friend liv for modeling the piece!
