So after what feels like months and months of dreary, rainy, ridiculously cold days, spring is (somewhat) here. Like most British people I cannot wait for the warmer days, ones where I don’t have to leave the house in so many layers I can’t properly move. Every year when spring rolls around the shops always seem to up their game, stocking a ton of lovely bits and pieces that are calling my name, but struggling to live as a student, I can’t have everything my heart desires, so here are just a few bits and bobs that I’ll be adding to my spring wish list.
Recently I have been absolutely loving pinafore dresses, they are so perfect for the slightly warmer weather, chuck a long sleeve top on underneath and you’re good to go. Being super easy to style too, they lend themselves well to be worn both formally and casually which I love. I recently picked up this one from H&M and it’s up there with one of my favorite buys this year. Topshop have also got some lovely ones in stock at the moment, if you can afford to spend a bit more on one.
I’ve never really been one for blouses, mainly because I think that sometimes they do absolutely nothing for my figure, but this year I’ve found that a lot of places have stocked blouses that are incredibly flattering. Both New Look and Boohoo have got some gorgeous ones, that are slightly cropped with a v-neck, which I love as it’s a lot more flattering on my figure. There are also some beautiful prints around at the moment!
Matching Denim Skirts & Jackets
I’ve seen a lot of big influencers rocking these lately and they’re something that I need to get my hands on and attempt to rock too. They look like such a put together outfit, but at the same time so effortless – anything that has both these qualities is always perfect for someone like me that just wants to chuck something on, but at the same time look like I’ve made the effort.
As much as I love getting dressed up and looking like I have my life together, I’ve seen a lot of basic cropped tees around at the moment, which when paired with some jeans, trainers and a denim jacket create such a cool, casual look – great for just day to day wear. I’ve been loving the ones on Pretty Little Thing recently, they’re super affordable and look fab.
Of course this list wouldn’t be complete without some sort of shoe being featured on here. Converse have been an all time favorite of mine for a long time now, they are super comfy and go with absolutely everything, what’s not to like. I’ve had my eyes on these ones for a while now and I think I will have to add them to my ever growing shoe collection fairly soon!
I’m sure that over the next couple of months I will be stocking up my wardrobe with as many spring garments as my bank account will let!
All my love,
