I was actually already planning on doing an inspirational style moodboard for Ted Baker, ever since I walked into House of Fraser about a month ago and fell in love with the entire S/S 13 collection; so it was simply fate that I came across their blogger competition to do just that!
It has been an extremely hard decision choosing just 3 of my favourite items, but I have perfected my final outfit creation which I have tailored towards a summer's day out at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show, since today was the opening of the prestigious event which I am planning on hopefully attending soon.
This delicious 'Lellia' dress (£129) instantly caught my eye whilst shopping in House of Fraser that day; I absolutely adore pretty pastels as everyone knows, especially when teamed with fly away chiffon and cute pleats! Due to it's lovely loose fit and light fabric, it would also be extremely accommodating and comfortable for my ever growing baby bump - perfect!
I thought about teaming the dress with many of the gorgeous handbags from the S/S collection - and if we were allowed to make it 4 items instead of 3 I definitely would! However, I decided to put my sensible hat on (it rarely makes an appearance...) and decided I was creating this outfit realistically as to what I would ideally wear on my day out to the Chelsea Flower Show. Therefore, I chose to team the dress with this beautiful sorbet pink 'Safiyah' trench coat (£249), as we can never rely on our Great British Weather to provide us with sunshine, and what's the point in wearing such a pretty dress if it is just going to be sodden with raindrops! I have been looking for a Spring mac for a while now and this is the perfect find to stay warm and dry as well as classically stylish!
Finally I am going against all my sensibilities rambling on about staying dry in the rain, by choosing these gorgeous, but rather impractical 'Joela' sandals (£110) if walking around on squelchy grass at a flower show! But a girl's got to have some fun right!? Plus the pretty aqua hue coordinates beautifully with my other chosen pastel beauties - and we all know I love a good colour coordination too!
My final touches would be perfectly manicured nails in a zingy lemon shade, a slick of subtle nude lippie, hair pinned up in a chic chignon, my pearl necklace and earrings set and the silver metallic quilted clutch, 'Mettar' from Ted Baker for a little bit of shine ♥
What would you choose from the Ted Baker S/S 13 collection?
