Christmas in July

It's a strange concept, but I have really been spending the last two weeks like it really has been Christmas. Summer officially hasn't arrived, but all brands are one step ahead, and I've spent the last two week looking at all the upcoming Christmas collection from some of my favourite brands.

I had an early morning with Next, but it was worth it. The Christmas collection looks amazing, filled with some great looks and home accessories. The Christmas looks were bright and glamorous, with a lot of embellishment in the form of studs and jewellery. The knitwear was definitely my favourite. It all looked so warm and cosy; perfect for spending time at home, next to the fireplace, surrounded by loved ones.
We were also treated to an amazing catwalk, filled with gorgeous looks and models, as well as super hot male models and even the most adorable little ids walked the catwalk. They were a clear highlight!


Next Wedding Afternoon Tea:
Don't worry, I'm not planning on getting married anytime soon, but I couldn't resist when I was invited to Afternoon Tea with Next, to check out their wedding range. I had no idea Next did bridal wear, and was really impressed by what I saw. The wedding dress on display was absolutely stunning: definitely something I could see myself in, while the flower girl dresses were the most adorable little things. There was also such a pretty range of occasion wear/bridesmaid dresses. The dusty pink/embellished dress was definitely my favourite. There was also a plum coloured jumpsuit which looked amazing. I loved how unique it was.
Oh and I can't forget the shoes. I really fell in love with some of the white heels I saw, and couldn't believe how affordable they were. Definitely worth a look if you're planning a wedding anytime soon.


Motel Rocks:
Motel has turned into a bit of a favourite brand among bloggers lately and it's clear to see why. They have so many different styles, easy in different colours and prints. The Christmas collection is pretty huge and is filled with everything from lace to sequins, and even a lot of florals and geometric prints. Most prominently were all the different prints: from 90's grunge to very bold shapes, and each looked amazing. I also loved the introduction of leather to this collection, as well as the two toned sequins dresses, that changed colour on the way the sequins was facing.


Forever 21:
I've actually never really walked into the Forever 21's since they opened in the UK, so wasn't too sure what to expect from the new collection, but I only have positives to say about it. There was a cool mixtures of blush tones and pretty dresses, along side more sparkle and even some 'gothic glamour'. Each range was perfect for a Christmas party, with something for every style. 
There was also an exclusive collection on display, that will only be available at the Flagships: Oxford Street and Times Square. 


What do you think? Too early to be thinking about Christmas?

The wedding afternoon tea looks so much fun! It's strange seeing autumn clothes in the shops already, I feel like I'm still waiting for summer but at least I can get excited about buying new season clothes that I know I'll actually wear! x

You've been SO busy, Sherin! I feel it's too early for winter fashion - but honestly, for me it's ALWAYS too early for winter wear. xoxo

It all looks great, but I can't possibly think about Christmas at the moment as I am far to busy enjoying the sunshine!
