Rebecca Taylor AW12

I was really surprised when I saw the runway pictures from the latest Rebecca Taylor catwalk collection at the recent New York Fashion Week. A complete contradiction in colour palette, if you look back at some of her earlier collections. It was kept very minimal and moody, with mainly black, charcoal, and dashes of blue. She has really gone in a different direction, ditching her trademarks of femininity, flowers and frills, and taking on a more edgy-cool vibe, which screams downtown New York girl.

Festival Hair Flowers

I love this trend that's going to re-emerge for the summer. The floral garlands were a big hit at the festivals over the last couple of years, but now they have come back bigger and better.

Some of the best you can buy I found were on the Free People and ASOS websites.

ASOS had a really nice choice of own brand ones and my favourite from a brand called 'Her Curious Nature'

Top Left to Right: ASOS Carnation Flower Headband: £8, Her Curious Nature Velvet Flower headband (shop at ASOS):£28, ASOS Orchid headband: £8, ASOS Flower Hessian headband: £8
All available to shop here now at ASOS.COM

Free People had a great choice, florals seems to be everywhere on their website

From top left to right: Flower Braid Halo (3 colours); £36.58, Floral Braided Headdress;£49.19, Tonal Ribbon Flower Headdress; £30.27, Tonal Flower Tie; £17.66

And my ultimate fave from Free People...
