As a reminder here are the season's key trends as identified by UK Vogue in their Spring/Summer 2011 catwalk report: colour blocking; smart sportswear; modern craft; blue; gathering; flowing; white; denim; fiesta; tangerine; eastern; layers; nude; nature; accessories; cover ups and 70s.
So far I have created these looks - denim, 70s, smart sportswear, blue, nude, cover ups, nature, modern craft, nature again and colour blocking. Today I have gone for fiesta which is all about the salsa - peasant blouses, frills and passion.

I was off work today and was all set for a day of sizzle under the sun and whilst I dressed the part the weather closed in and the afternoon was besieged by thunder, lightning and torrential rain of epic proportions.
This is definitely an inspired by rather than a literal take on the look and it is a bit of a tricky one to pull off for daytime. I do love the latin style but often feel more comfortable creating it when I am on holiday abroad.
I think I have proven in the case of Lori's wardrobe versus fiesta that this season's flamboyant trend can be created without a visit to the High Street.
