Hot Mama Style with Eden Shopping

Just last week I had a meltdown in the middle of a shop after struggling to find anything I felt good in. So imagine how happy I was when I was asked to feature this great style advice for summer from the fabulous guys at Eden Shopping Centre in High Wycombe. This comes just in time for their Summer Digital Showcase starting tomorrow and running for a week. So why not grab some inspiration and hit the shops for summer?
H&M Off the shoulder top £7.99
Here at Eden Shopping Centre we’re big fans of Stephanie’s Our Cherry Tree Blog, and so naturally we were delighted when she invited us to write a guest feature to celebrate Eden’s upcoming Summer Digital Fashion Showcase.

We’re focusing on style for mums, and have put a few hints and style tips to make your summer wardrobe prep as quick and easy as possible, inspired by our upcoming Digital Fashion Showcase, leaving you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sunshine!

Let’s start with colour, something that’s one of the key summer trends for 2016 and features heavily in our fashion show. There are so many beautiful bright hues available in Eden’s stores, it’s almost criminal to head straight for the muted shades. Keep it interesting and instantly lift your look by experimenting with bold tones, embellishments and ruffles this summer for a fresh, fun twist on your everyday style.
Marks and Spencer Striped Bardot Blouse £27.50
For those new to colour, we’d recommend blocking rather than mixing patterns and prints - if you’re unsure of diving in, start with just one vivid item. Warm up by showing off a little more skin for the sun in an off the shoulder Bardot inspired top in a statement colour of your choice. River Island is your go-to destination for this look – pair with a 90s throwback, stylish high waisted ‘mom’ jeans (again, River Island is your friend, or check out Topshop’s huge array of jean styles) and pumps. If you’re looking for a different trouser alternative, culottes are chic and filling the shelves! For many, they’re still a daunting prospect but be bold and conquer your fear in this red pair available at ZARA. If you’re heading out on a date night then add a pair of killer heels from House of Fraser, or keep it practical with embellished sandals and treat yourself a pedi to rock the school run.

Zara Culottes with slits £22.99

Office Blossom Embellished Sandals £40
At the top of our must-have list this summer is nauticaluxe - a twist on the traditional Breton stripe, but just as versatile to wear. Whilst classic sailor whites and blues look lovely, this Summer mix it up and incorporate colour pops to the classic stripe. Walk the line in a maxi dress fit for the French Riviera just like this gorgeous pleated ombre stripe maxi dress from Wallis. For a laidback luxe, simply pair a classic crew tee with a pair of skinnies and oversized sunnies for timeless elegance. Trust us, this style is a mum’s best friend. A little goes a long way so don’t go overboard, keep it simple and the stripes will keep you looking effortlessly glam.
Wallis - Pleated Ombre Stripe Maxi Dress - £65
House of Fraser - French Connection Light Gold Square Sunglasses - £55

Well done for being featured by Eden. There are some lovely ideas to rev up a Summer wardrobe. I am a complete kitch pattern/print fan, I am sure I don't do it well... but bring on the colour :-) Thank you for linking up to the #DreamTeam

Thank you! I think you're very brave to wear patterns and prints, I'm dipping my toe in and testing the waters at the moment but still prefer black! x
