Spring/Summer Styling with White Stuff

White Stuff Customer Style Event

I had the pleasure of being invited to White Stuff in Corn Market, Belfast for their spring/summer style event last month.

I do love a bit of styling. After working at many a fashion show during my internship with Style Academy Model Agency, it’s certainly something I enjoy.

It can be frustrating finding the perfect outfit, so I was happy to help White Stuff’s customers, as well as choosing some of my top style picks in-store this season.

Quirky Interiors

As soon as you step through the door at White Stuff in Belfast, there is so much to see. From their in-store old fashioned charity sweet shop, quirky printed walls, cinema and ’80’s home’ inspired changing rooms.

My Spring/Summer Style Picks

Shoes

White Stuff have a fab range of trainers and plimsoles. I have wore the life out of these ‘white punchout lace up trainers‘ already – they have a gorgeous metallic tab detailing at the back.

I was loving this denim look smock dress with scallop detailing, which will be perfect for summer festivals and gigs. This dress comes in a cute top version too.

This floral print meow top was also one of my favs, very boho! I would pair this with skinny or flared jeans and wedges.

Her Christmas Wish List

I am guilty of making a ‘Santa list’ ?? every year in my Notes on my phone (I can’t be the only one). I love shopping at the best of times, but at Christmas retailers pull out all the stops to get you inspired for Christmas gifting ?, as well as key pieces for your winter wardrobe & I just love it!

I have come across a number of fab pieces while doing my Christmas shopping over the past few weeks, as well as some bits for my own little wish list. So if you need some inspiration for purchasing a gift for a friend, family member, girlfriend or you simply want to treat yourself and don’t know where to start, here are some of my top picks…
