THE SPRING ITEMS YOU NEED NOW..Monday, April 10, 2017
Wow, if the weather this weekend is anything to go by then I best pack up my Winter wardrobe. To be able to walts out the house without a jacket in tow is pretty rare for the UK, especially in April! The weather got me thinking that it's about time I gave you all a little Spring/Summer inspiration. I'm a Winter gal, I enjoy bulky knitwear and oversized coats.. so come warmer weather I'm pretty stuck with what to wear. So if you're out in the 20's wearing a jumper, jeans and fur loafers like me.. here's 4 Spring items you need now.
Think of these as a lighter alternative to a pair of cigarette trousers. They're smart, but still casual enough to throw on a tee and sandals and be away. To be completely frank I've never own a pair before-I've always gone from jeans straight into a pair of denim shorts..I've never owned an in between! This mango pair has a slight military vibe, I'm not sure if it's the colour of the metal hardware? These are a paper bag waist so they are quiet trend focuses. From the front they're amazing.. turn side on they are quiet shapely, never the less the attached belt does an amazing job at pulling your waist in!
I've worn a logo tee and faux suede mules to give this look a real on trend vibe.. but they'll look equally as cool worn with a striped Brenton tee and espadrilles once we hit the 20 degrees territory.

A piece we all own. There's no need to rush out and purchase a new blouse-how you wear it will give it a new lease of life. I live in blouse's during this time of year, they're SO easy to wear and they look so chic tucked into a pair of light wash straight leg denim! During colder month's I like to wear my blouses layered underneath silk cami's to get the most wear out of my purchase. A khaki cargo jacket looks equally as cool worn open with a pair of white trainers!
I've worn mine simply with a pair of tan lace up sandals and a straw beach bag - Voila a Spring ready outfit.

I'm a sucker for outwear, so naturally this is my favourite piece I've featured in this post.. the trench literally completes my outfit! It's so lightweight so it's not a pain to carry around if I get a little warm, yet it's the perfect piece to pop on to hide away from any chill. It's structured, tailored, belted.. the list goes on! Right now I'm packing away my Winter coats and hanging up my Trench coats, khaki cargo jackets and staple leathers ready for warmer weather!
A plain white tshirt and a pair of light wash jeans are the perfect way to style this coat. It's easy, no stress and so easy to wear. Gucci inspired fur loafers are optional..

The Tea Dress
The tea dress was a massive trend last Season.. and now is the time to dust them down! Again, no need to repurchase unless you're looking for something a little more on trend. I wasn't so sure on them last season as I'm not very girly.. and because I'm only 5"3 I thought they'd make me look quiet young. I was so wrong! They skim my legs perfectly and actually fall at the smallest part of my leg-winning. If you're not too keen on anything too floral or printed, then fear they do also come completely plain! Why not try a floral number paired with a leather jacket and ankle boots to toughen it up?
I'm wearing mine exactly the same way I sported my tea dress last year.. with an oversized knit!
