If you are local to Leicester, or just visiting, and want to shop away from the bustle of the main City Centre, then I would highly recommend Fosse Shopping Park (or just Fosse Park to us local Leicester folk). They have over 30 stores covering everything from beauty to fashion and homeware and they have several eateries too that cater for all manner of different tastes. There is even a beauty and grooming salon above the Superdrug. Plus, one of the best features of Fosse? Free parking!
I’m really lucky that I live very close to Fosse Park. It’s so easy for me to pop there for whatever I need. That’s why I’m delighted to work with Fosse on highlighting some of their top stores, and the pieces in that store as part of their S/S18 campaign ‘#springstyles’. From fashion to homeware and beauty, I’ve picked out some of the latest pieces, all available right now at the shopping centre.
So, first up was discovering the latest beauty trends at Boots, which you can read here. This second piece is all about homeware trends from Next Home at Fosse. The third and final one is all about the accessory trends at Outfit, Fosse Park…
This season, bags go supersized, and super textured. From faux fur to pleather styles, there are so many accessories to choose from that you can mix and match with your outfits. Outfit has such a wide range of accessories and bags available, perfect for work and for play. From furry pom poms and faux fur trims, to stitched embroidered florals, there is something for all types. I absolutely loved the below bags. The gorgeous floral stitching on the side of the nude bag really makes a statement for the Summer, and it’s large enough inside to fit all manner of items, from work essentials to overnight ensembles for a weekend away!
It’s all about the classic flat this season. A lot of people tend to shy away from black in the Summer, but as long as you get a quality pair of shoes, black will not bother you- and you will ALWAYS look chic. Outfit have such a fab range of footwear with pretty embellishments that would be ideal for both inside and outside of the office. This season you will be able to find studs, tassels and pretty scalloped edging on those black flats. Who says staple pieces have to be basic and boring? Outfit have a wide range of footwear available that will see you through season upon season!
‘Back To School’ Stationery For Grown Ups
Ok, so one of my favourite things in the entire world is stationery. Does that make me sad? I don’t care. There’s something so satisfying in writing on the first page of a brand new never been touched notebook. Such a lovely feeling. I have a real love for all things organisational when it comes to paperwork, and when I saw this collection at WHSmith I knew that it would be the perfect fit for me. Millennial pink and rose gold!! This collection includes notebooks, diaries and weekly planners, and these will certainly come in handy when I start my new job in a few weeks. Also, look how well they match with my rose gold Swarovski pen that my boyfriend bought me last Christmas. Lovely.
All products are from Outfit and WHSmith at Fosse Park.
