Spring has sprung!!

Spring has definitely 'sprung' in the UK this week - longer sunny days, windows open while driving, pumps, peep toes and european dance music blasting from cars.

Spring is definitely one of those seasons where people are generally more optimistic; whether it's planning for the summer, anticipating warm weather, spending more time outdoors or just happy with the prospect of it still being light when they get home from work or school. For me spring officially begins when I no longer feel the need to wear boots everyday (having lived in knee high's, ankle boots, Uggs and shoe-boots since September).

Having frequented both High Street and designer stores over the past few weeks I've become a big fan of this seasons bold bright colours, maxi's, white wash palettes and vintage styling for both men and women - I'm also happy that the current trends support my own style pledge to avoid wearing head to toe in black - it's just so unneccesary when there's so much colour to choose from!!

Take a look at my top picks from both designer labels and the High Street:

Marc Jacobs Cross Over Satchel £290 - guaranteed to brighten up any outfit

Marchesa silk chiffon dress £4010 - Gorgeous investment for a busy social calender
Temperley London ronnie animal print chiffon dress £995 - Team this with a leather jacket for a laid back look
Topshop Beige Peter Pan Floral Dress £36 - Vintage inspired on the high street

French Connection Anna Lace Dress £110 - Inspired by Marchesa
Miss Selfridge Cream drop back shirt £35 - A wardrobe staple and ideal for day into night
Carvela shilling £130 - Absolutely loving these desert boots

As it was the hottest day of the year today (I realise it's only April) I thought I'd finish this post with a real 'feel good' song from a proper band with great style - currently on repeat in my car - The Strokes!

Enjoy xoxo


  1. I like! I like! Bought a lovely vintage-y floral top yesterday, and a maxi in spring green and brown. HnM is all about the maxi's this month. Really do love this season :)

  2. I love the Marc Jacobs! I can't wait to whip out all the summer clothes, realise I don't like any of them and use that as a fab excuse to do more shopping! xx
