We’re a mere few days out from Spring, though judging by the cloudless skies and warmer than usual days, you’d have thought the season of blooms had already arrived.
I’m in the process of giving my wardrobe a little refresh, and aside from the odd wild card, I’m opting for some more colourful neutrals; think pink, army green, and camel. So I thought I’d take a quick minute to share some of the styles I’m loving for for Spring, as well as a couple of pieces I currently have my eye on.
ALL PINK EVERYTHING
Ever since Italy, all I’ve had on my mind is all pink everything, and it’s probably no surprise that about 80% of the items sitting in my wishlist are some shade of blush. I recently picked up this slouchy midi dress from ASOS which I plan on pulling out on those cooler Spring days, paired with with some cute flats or sneakers. I also love the idea of pink accessories – handbags in particular! – to add a subtle flush of colour to an all white look.
OFF THE SHOULDER
I’ve been dying to bare a little bit of shoulder all winter long – it’s been hands down one of my favourite trends of late, and one which I can quickly see taking over my wardrobe. Given it’s a statement in itself, I’ll be opting mostly for neutral tones, paired with some denim or a cute mini skirt.
I’ve never been much of a girl to reach for trainers, but I spotted a pair on my morning walk to work in the windows of Topshop and have been smitten since. I like the idea of wearing trainers with a loose midi dress on my casual days off.
My outfits are typically on the more minimal end of the scale, and given I don’t reach for jewellery that often, I love the addition of a neck tie to help jazz up a look. J Crew and Madewell have been my one stop shop for affordable bandanas, plus I love the fact that they come in a range of really sweet prints.
Playing around with mixed proportions is something that I love to do daily, and I feel like the addition of a lace victorian blouse will just take things to the next level. I imagine it paired with a fitted skirt to really play up the volume!
An army jacket has been on my wishlist for years, and I’m determined to narrow it down and finally pull the trigger on one this Spring. I figure this will pair perfectly with anything blush, and be a great transitional piece as we move out of winter.
Basically anything that’s an entire look in one (dresses completely included) is a bit of a no brainer to me, and I’ve currently got my eye on this polka dot number from J Crew. I love that it gives the illusion of a two piece, and I can envision it being dressed down with a pair of slide sandals, or dressed up with some killer heels.
About 90% of the bags in my closet are slouchy, so I’m definitely keen to add in something that has a little bit more structure. The Givenchy antigona seems like an obvious choice (and in the salmon pink – yes please!), though I’m currently keeping my eyes peeled for a slightly more affordable option.
