This season, Carmen Miranda inspired prints exploded on to the Catwalk (don’t know who Carmen Miranda is? I didn’t either until I typed her name into google images –http://tinyurl.com/43f5nt3 – ‘ohhh yeaaah that fruit-head lady!’)
Banana print was featured in PRADA’s 2011 spring/summer show (if you can’t tell already, I love PRADA.)
I came across a fashion illustration blog called www.gattobravo-miao.com, it’s so cute check it out. Here’s their interpretation of PRADA’s fruit prints:
Stella McCartney’s Spring/Summer collection featured zesty citrus fruits.

I’m one of those people who refuses to wear things that aren’t comfy. Thankfully I’ve recently discovered Clarks’ new range of comfy Summer heels, wedges and flats.
My faves are the Thai Dance Black Nubuk and the Florida Bay (I need them), both £59.99 shown respectively above. Seriously they feel like you’re walking on pillows – they have a little cushiony bit right where it would hurt under the balls of your feet.
They can both be found at http://www.clarks.co.uk or in Clarks stores.
On the other hand I’m completely in love with these wedges that will be on sale soon from TOPSHOP – but will they be comfy!?

Flares, palazzo pants and midi skirts are IN for this summer. Here are two of my favourites from ASOS.com and TOPSHOP.co.uk respectively:
Will I see anyone braving this new trend when I’m style spotting in Belfast this week? Watch this space..
