You can take the girl out of the Fashion & Textiles industry but you can't take the love of a new season out of the girl. I know, I know, in my last blog I was talking all about how 'things' don't matter, but a new season always means a new wish list for me. So, what has grabbed my attention this season so far.....
First off is the Sherpa Kailash Hooded Jacket. In the purple with orange detailing this fresh, zingy colouring says Spring to me. Perfect for keeping warm on those chilly mornings and evenings it will then pack down uber small in your sack during the day.
I am really excited about the launch of the new Lowe Alpine range of rucksacks. They are one of the best female specific packs out there and for me I am after a roomier pack which will take my on some overnight wild camps. The Manaslu ND55-65L is from their Axiom range and I for one cannot wait to try it on for size.
Next up is an outdoor design classic, the Keen Venice H2 Sandal. Again, technically this is not a new season contender but with its fresh lemon and grey colouring I think it can easily slip in under the radar as a Spring 2016 must have
The Spring 2016 Fjallraven Collection is fantastic this year with lots of beautifully made pieces that I would just love. However, these Fjallraven Nilla trousers have totally won me over. They are perfect as a go-between, equally at home up on the hills as down the Pub, or for me on the High Ropes or Climbing Tower at work. They are also a great shape with a slim leg. I really don't like a flappy ankle!
Of course any new season needs a new t-shirt and sweatshirt and the United by Blue t-shirt has a great fit, not too loose and not too snug which is going to make it a failsafe go to day after day. And as for the Maloja CarolM Sweater. WOW. This is my No.1 must have so far this season. I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Just gorgeous in that bright, cheerful orange.
Happy Spring 2016 Everyone!
