Weekend Shopping: Cut-Grass & Candy Cool Easter Style Edit (With Just a Bit of Chocolate)

06/04/2012 22:08 | Updated 06 June 2012

Whether you're treating friends, family or just yourself this Easter, there are plenty of Springtime shopping joys to behold from dessert flavoured chocolate bars to candles that look good enough to eat. If you're not indulging in the whole egg thing, there are some wonderful chocolatey beauty treats on hand to satisfy your senses, or scoop some super sweet candy pastels for a sugary apparel hit.

Whilst they may look divine on the models at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry etc. if - like me - you're not cut out for pale, ice cream coloured clothing, announce the arrival of Spring in uplifting, British Racing grass green instead. It's a vibrant alternative to the pastel trend this season, seen at Gucci, Lanvin and Jil Sander, and proves the perfect foil for chick-yellow accessories, so fresh and appropriate for this weekend.

Happy Easter everyone!
