I love moodboards. A great way to express your creativity and pull together images and colours to create a theme and inspiration. And that’s where my love of Polyvore comes in.
I can spend hours either looking though other creator’s boards for inspiration on how to style an outfit, or create my own looks using their create option.
I decided one evening recently, when I was feeling particularly creative to create some of my own boards of looks I’m loving and create a visual wishlist of outfits and homeware I’m lusting after.
The first look I created is a collection of outfits perfect for summer. Feminine, pretty and pastel shades was the vibe I was channelling. I love the Chanel handbag, I mean that is a dream item to own. Maybe one day!
MANGO lace dress, £62 / Aéropostale striped top, £13 / Green t shirt, £19 / Topshop embroidered top / Valentino pull on shorts, £690 / J.Crew j crew shorts, £235 / Lace skirt, £85 / Nasty Gal vegan sneaker, £39 / Chanel vintage handbag, £3,855 / New Look draw string bag / The Sak beach jewelry, £19 / August Hat floppy hat, £31 / Flat lens sunglasses, £13 / Too Faced Cosmetics face makeup, £23
The second look I created is a more of a younger and fun look, ideal for the festival season. I’d love the excuse to wear bright colours and go big and bold and wear clothes I would normally shy away from.
I feel at festivals, the louder the look the better!
RED Valentino cropped tank top, £270 / Boohoo halter top, £11 / Chiara Ferragni shorts, £280 / Forte Couture blue shorts, £240 / Sequin romper, £41 / Elina linardaki sandals, £110 / High top sneaker, £43 / Emilio Pucci handbags tote, £1,755 / Band jewelry, £33 / Statement necklace / Earring jewelry / Illesteva blue sunglasses / Pom pom hat / NYX eyeshadow, £14 / Mac cosmetic, £13 / OPI nail polish, £5.43
This last look is for the home and I wanted to design my ideal bedroom. I love pink, so that had to feature in it. I also think the cool green of the cacti compliment the pink well, along with white, gold and copper.
I wanted to design something feminine but classy and with some fun too. This makes me want to go on a home ware haul now!
Goodnight Light gold lamp / Copper lamp / John Lewis bedding / Modern bedding, £13 / Bed pillow, £4.80 / Fringe ceramic mug, £10 / Tom Dixon pink throw pillow, £170 / Southwest wall art, £25 / Marble clock, £5.80 / Sheer curtain panel, £7.77 / Porcelain vase / White end table, £745 / Century white table, £140
I hope you like my moodboards and they give you some inspiration for your own fashion looks or homeware styling. I don’t claim to be a fashion know it all, just someone who loves to experiment and be creative with it!
I’d love to know what trends you are loving at the moment. Please leave a comment below!
