Ah isn’t Somerset house beautiful?
It feels a bit odd to be here when it isn’t fashion week, most noticeably was the lack of the big courtyard show space in the centre where willowy model types can usually be seen having a quick cigarette break during the show season. This time, the frantic fashion vibes were replaced by a much more relaxed and sunny one on this visit, as it was the location of the Next Autumn Winter Press day. Probably my favourite location yet. There are definitely a few things that caught my eye and as ever, there are lots of great shoes to look out for!
I still don’t own any leopard ballet flats, despite the style and print being absolutely everywhere for years now. These bright red ones are really cute, a little quirky/retro but the brightness means that they are a bit of a statement piece.
Another thing I don’t own yet are printed jeans. Next always do great jeans and this heart print is a nice addition to their range. Plus the dark colour is super flattering too.
More shoes! I am always drawn to the flats even though my own mother tells me to wear heels more often. Unlike some bloggers, I’d much rather live in my converse and flats rather than opt for heels. Sorry Mum.
Despite not being a kid anymore, the kids section is definitely one of my favourites. Maybe I can buy the Zebra hat or Wooly hat for my little cousins! To be fair, if the yellow one was adult sized, I’d be all over it.
I’ve also reached an age where browsing home-ware with friends is actually enjoyable and I particularly love the home section in Next. I actually loved this Canvas with all the little messages on it, it’s so positive and happy! It would make a perfect housewarming gift too and is super DIY-able. Probably not the main intention of the press day but I can’t have been the only one to think this. Time to buy some paint, stencils and a big canvas!
