Easing into Spring

It’s always quite strange going from winter wear to summer wear, when a boiling hot day springs itself upon us, I always feel completely unprepared, apart from having no tan, I feel like I’m walking around in my underwear when wearing a pair of shorts.  Some relaxed not so “bare” ensembles to ease you into spring.  Create a wardrobe that you can easily mix and match that won’t only make daily dressing a whole lot easier, but also packing for weekends away.  Where you see a scarf, try something new and wear it on your head like a turban à la Mira Duma sported rather frequently this summer.  As always click on links to shop direct!

My favourite seasons

This is probably the last post I will do for a while that will benefit both my Southern and Northern Hemisphere friends.  We’re getting closer to similar temperatures (well probably still about 10 degrees difference) but a Northern Hem person pretends to feel warmer when they see the sun and a Southern Hem person gets chilly way too easily.

Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons for dressing, the perfect temperature for all the things I love to wear.  Its cropped trouser weather (perfect 5ft3 leg length choice), Macs (another fave of mine) little cropped jackets (think boucle, denim, military style), fun shoes without sweaty feet or freezing feet (depending on where you live) pointed flats and best of all no bulky coats.  I really am NOT a fan of coats.

So how to wear all of the above.  The options are endless. Roll up the chino (hot trend) wear with anything from white sneakers to heels.  Add a collared shirt and earrings for a smarter look or a t-shirt and denim jacket for something more casual.  Wear shorts with a knitted jumper and military green jacket.  Pair an embroidered 3/4 dress with ankle boots and a Mac.  Need I say more.  Shop the season’s picks below!

Wear a pair of ankle boots with this Embroidered Dress for those drizzly days and throw a Mac overtop.

These Tassel Sandals will look super cute with rolled up chinos if weather permits.

I adore this Ruffle Sleeve Top  worn with anything from skinny jeans, to chinos, smarter trousers or tucked into a skirt. Love the statement sleeves!

Rolled up Chinos are such a hit this season and so versatile.  Wearing them with heels looks so chic as does a pair of sneakers for a dress down edge.

Pop these ultra cool Comme des Garçons sneakers on with absolutely anything you fancy, they will work!

The military trend that never dies, this vintage army jacket  is great for cool weather when there’s a chill in the air. Every closet needs one.

Spring Transitions

Casual Comforts is how Im feeling right now.  The temps should be warming up later in the week, and gradually more so as April inconspicuously springs it’s pretty self upon us, but as we transition across to Spring it’s difficult to start breaking out into skirts without tights, short sleeves and god forbid we need to get those winter feet out into sandals! This outfit will keep you at the perfect temp, has the right amount of ventilation without showing any skin but still looking stylish and slightly sexy in a comfortable manner, no?! I love the flattering jeans with the wide weaved knit which has a lowish V-back. You will be hitting the ground running in the style steaks with these open sided shoes which are bang on trend, again feeling less wintery but without really putting the white feet on show completely! Grab your hand held clutch and a chunky ring and you’re looking ever so covetable.  Remember feeling comfortable is the key to looking confident and good.  It’s my pleasure!

Style Steal

You must think Im stark raving mad writing about Floral and Mixing prints again if you saw two previous posts of mine regarding similar topics.  But this time its different. A few reasons why.

1) I was going to add these gorgeous shoes in my last Floral post here, BUT this is such a brilliant style steal I decided that they needed their own individual airtime. I hope you agree?

2) I thought at the same time I would include some inspirational pics to help you along with ideas and how to style your florals. Don’t be afraid to mix them up.

3) If you read a previous post about mixed prints here and you think I have gone mixed print mad then you are correct, I have! And it feels good!

So the style steal is Mary Katrantzou vs Ted Baker

Do NOT be afraid to mix prints, wear your pretty floral shoes with a cropped pair of floral trousers or tone it down by wearing a plain coloured skirt with a printed blouse. See some inspirational pics below.

Spring Florals

We arrived back in London this morning to a very bright sunny day and I was very excited to see many of the trees are in bloom! This often happens a bit prematurely in London when we have a warm snap a little too early and then suddenly the temp drops drastically again and the poor little flowers don’t know what’s hit them! This pretty tree was a very welcome sight in my street today.

Even though the temperature has dropped considerably again, the fact that we got a taste of the warmer weather already means that it could be back at any time, so we need to be prepared!! Get out your florals to give you that “spring” in your step and Im pretty sure it will make you feel jollier around the office too 😉 Shop my picks of Spring Florals.
