Spain Travel Diaries ~ Rainbow Brights in Alicante

Belle & Bunty London COAST Spain Travel Diary SS17 2017 summer style inspiration

Like adults in Harvey Nichols kids at Christmas we have been counting down the sleeps until we get to share this latest post with you, and today’s the day. Whoop whoop. As part of our Spain Travel Diaries we teamed up with Coast to style up their Summer Resort Collection: full of gorgeous brights, rainbow stripes and pretty, pretty pieces perfect for your holiday wardrobe.

We happily packed up our top picks from the collection and road tested them on the cobbled streets of Alicante Old Town. Like 2 modern day Anneka Rice wannabes, we darted around the streets in search of sangria pink blossom trees & sun bleached pastel houses to twirl in front of. We are happy to report that we found them all.

How to be an Isabel Marant Girl

Belle & Bunty London Isabel Marant Margarita Karenko SS17 20170331_83

We’ve been mulling over a new “mini series” for a little while and finally we are happy to tell you the 1st one is here! Ok, so let us explain a bit more: there are a few designers who’s collections we pretty much love season after season. We are calling it a mini series as it’ll be just that. There are only a handful of designers who we feel get it right time after time and who’s handwriting and aesthetic we lurve. Big time.

The big sticking point with this concept is the price point of the clothes we were talking about as they are all pretty pricey and tbh, most of us can’t regularly afford, especially if you want to fully buy into the look, head~to~toe.

So our take on the idea is how to get the designers look but from the high street. Pieces HEAVILY inspired by the designers we love but at prices we can afford.
