If you live in the Southern Hemisphere, the month of September always signals the start of spring, which hands down has to be one of my favourite seasons. I’m a summer baby at heart, but I love this change in season, it’s the opportunity to introduce some interesting layers, as well as a softer colour palette. So today, I wanted to share my latest YouTube video, which features eight different looks, with some of my favourite go-to wardrobe staples for spring. I’d love to know which look is your favourite! x
This first look features one of my go-to jumpers from winter, this grey oversized Country Road sweater, paired with a cute polka dot ruffle skirt from Topshop (this is a similar option) and a pair of Chanel-inspired two-tone pumps from Vaneli.
This Sussan polka dot top is hands down one of my favourites, and I love it paired with the white denim skirt from J Crew, marshmallow pink coat from Karen Walker (sadly a few seasons old but this is cute), and my Charlotte Olympia kitty flats (if you’re after an affordable option, these are a great dupe).
I don’t tend to incorporate too many prints into my wardrobe, but I do make an exception for gingham, especially in the black and white check. This Kimchi Blue off shoulder dress ticks all the right boxes; the shirred bust, midi length, off shoulder detail and slit up the leg. I kept things simple and paired the dress with a Hat Attack straw bag and my favourite Sophia Webster sandals.
My colour palette often doesn’t stray far from black, grey and white, and this outfit fits is the perfect example; the Uniqlo turtleneck has been a godsend for layering under all my dresses, and I love how it pairs under this slip dress from Grana, and for shoes, I opted for my Valentino tango pumps, which are always a great fail safe option.
This Assembly Label sweater is one of the cosiest wardrobe additions of the year – I’m a little bit obsessed and have been wearing it with everything from my white denim mini, to these ASOS mom jeans. I often try to keep to a colour theme when building an outfit, and the Everlane day heels in nude are the perfect match. For my bag, I went for this Mansur Gavriel inspired bag from HiEleven – it’s made out of a faux leather and is super roomy inside, plus I love that it can be worn two ways!
Culottes are probably my favourite discovery of the year, so it wouldn’t be a Spring look book video without a pair. I’m wearing these cute cuffed striped wide leg culottes from J Crew, which I paired with a dove grey silk cami from Everlane and a classic trench coat, also from Everlane. For shoes, I am head over heels for these suede slingback from Paul Andrew (and the flats are also super cute!)
What I love about this outfit is all the earthy hues, something I’m trying to incorporate into my wardrobe a little more. Starting with the basics, is this T by Alexander Wang stripe top which I’ve been reaching for, for years now. I wore it with an a-line mini from RUBY, and a khaki green military jacket from Workshop (this is a similar option). For accessories, I loved the way that this paired with my pashli mini from Phillip Lim, and of course my CO kitty flats – a go to when I can’t decide which shoes to wear!
The final outfit is another favourite, which revolves around this oversized shirt dress from Everlane (this is similar). I paired it with an oversized denim jacket from Topshop, muted rose suede flats from Senso, my Chanel boy bag in the chevron caviar leather, which I’ve attached a zodiac twilly from Dior to in a bow – a little detail I absolutely love! x
