THE LEXICON | SS18 Blogger Event

I've come to the conclusion that there's no better way to start your weekend by heading out for breakfast, followed by shopping...

On Saturday, I was invited to The Lexicon blogger event in Bracknell. Up bright and early, we hit the road and upon arrival met at Coffee Barker where breakfast was first on the agenda. Oh my word it was amazing - my mixed berry smoothie looked more like a cocktail. Hey, why not at 9am!? The next best thing. I had the smoked salmon and scrambled egg on toast - delicious! If only I was a bit nearer, I'd be their newest loyal customer. 

Having spent a good while chatting to fellow bloggers (a group of lovely ladies) we were then talked through the top SS18 trends put together by The Lexicon & Fenwick's stylist Lisa Talbot. Pastel tones, primary colours, denim, trench coats, sheer, fringing, the 50's staple pencil skirt and slip dresses! Most of which already make an appearance in my wardrobe and I'm sure will continue to...

The Lexicon kindly gifted us all a voucher to spend and pick some new on trend wardrobe additions! If there's one thing I've decided I'm terrible at, it's having to shop for myself under pressure. Anyone else and it's a piece of cake... It's funny actually how much more you second question the buying process when it's in the form of a gift card. We managed 5 hours of shopping and left with some lovely new purchases... so I think that would be classed as a success! There are some fab trend items on the highstreet. I've included some of my picks in the images above, a fab sheer top from Topshop, the fringed Chanel-esque jacket from River Island, some primary colour accessories from M&S and not forgetting Accessorize's amazing selection of statement earrings - who'd have thought Pat Butcher would be a trend setter?!

The Lexicon is a lovely outdoor shopping and leisure centre with all the essentials like H&M, Topshop, New Look, Accessorize, Next.. a veeeeery tidy Primark (I know!) and not forgetting Fenwick... I just love a department store. Incredible gin section (and adjacent restaurant).. not that we got distracted or anything - also a rooftop terrace, if only it wasn't raining. You'll find brands there like Jo Malone, NARS, Charlotte Tilbury, Urban Decay & Mulberry, amongst many more.. just lovely!! Oh and not forgetting lots of places to eat outside which will be fab in the summer!

If you're at the Lexicon, have a go at 'Beat The Clock' in Princess Square. You can be in with the chance of winning a £250 Fenwick gift card, amongst many other prizes. I failed miserably unfortunately!

A big thanks to the lovely Megan and Ashleigh for having us and organising a brilliant event! 

Ps. I'll be posting how I've styled my purchases so keep an eye out on social and the blog...
