It’s official. The daffodils have spoken, Spring is creeping up on us.
Yelllloooo, welcome to what’s new in my wardrobe, Spring edition. Before I get into the post, can we please make a pact right now that if I ever get a bright idea like taking a set of blog photos in an alley again, to just nip it in the bud. Pronto? Mine and Katies morning was spent looking like a forgotten episode of Friends. With a guy serenading us playing guitar out of his window whilst I’m trying to attempt my best Blue Steel poses. Awkward? Most definitely.
I know it’s not spring yet (technically we’re still a month away), but my mind, body and soul are ready for it and I’m going to continue dressing like it is, regardless of how nippy it still is outside. This is one of my favourite times of the year for fashion and I live for the cute cardigans, pretty off the shoulder tops and midi dresses that take over the high street.
Brand Attic kindly sent me over this gingham blouse from Fashion Union, which I was on the fence with at first as you probably guessed by my Instagram stories, Milkmaid or cute? Whilst only one of you voted that I looked like a milkmaid (may I add, that one person was a girl from school who I haven’t spoken to in a good ten years?) I agree with the rest of you. I love this blouse and it pairs so well with my white mom jeans.
FYI, If you haven’t heard of Brand Attic, they’re an online retailer, kind of like Asos but the mini version. They stock a fab variety of brands like Fashion Union, Glamorous and Vero Moda who always bring out the best affordable pieces for summer so it’s definitely worth checking out.
Can we also pause a moment for bag appreciation? Late last spring I was obsessed with straw bags and I longed for one of the blogger-approved Gaia bags which were way too expensive for my liking. I managed to snag this square one on eBay for an impressive three pounds to fill that straw filled hole in my heart. So imagine how happy I am to see brands like Topshop bringing out inexpensive versions, you can bet your bucks that my Instagram feed come Spring will be full of straw and big smiles from me.
Here’s a few of my favourite Spring finds that I’ve got my beady little eye on. In particular this pastel gingham dress from fashion union and this glamorous midi dress that I just panic bought because I obviously couldn’t survive much longer without it.
Have you got anything on your Spring wishlist yet? share them with me and lets be bad shopping influences on each other! Thanks for reading x
