SPRING WARDROBE UPDATE
Spring (along with Summer) is one of my favourite seasons. There’s something about seeing the blossom opening up on the trees and the sun peeking out from behind the clouds that fills me with a feeling of promise. As much as I love my home here in London, the constant blanket of grey cloud above us can start to become a tad frustrating. As soon as Spring arrives I’m in my element, looking up and seeing even a teeny weeny patch of blue sky makes me feel so much more alive! The moment that Aslan and I can take our wonderful Reggie out for his afternoon walk without having to bundle ourselves up in fifteen layers and a mountain of scarves is the moment that I feel so much more inspired about literally EVERYTHING. One of my favourite things to do around this time is go through my wardrobe and fill any gaps with new season pieces that I might be missing. For this blog post I thought I’d share with you guys some of the new fashion items that have made their way into my collection this Spring.
During the winter months I tend to feel so uninspired to shop due to the fact that I’m usually wrapped up in a billion layers and it’s way too cold outside to wear a kick ass pair of ripped jeans and a cute denim jacket. As soon as Spring appears I can’t wait to see what goodies have hit the shelves in my ride or die go-to stores. One of my favourite things about shopping for new pieces to add to my wardrobe is that the approaching season inspires me to be so much more daring and my brand new camo jacket from Aritzia is the perfect example of this. I never thought I’d be the kind of girl who could pull of something like this but as soon as I saw it in the store I fell in LOVE! This jacket has hardly left my body since it came home with me and you guys seem to love it just as much as I do. What I love about this jacket is that it amps up a super casual and minimal outfit so effortlessly, I honestly don’t know what I wore before I bought this baby! I got my jacket from Aritzia but I’ve spied a similar one in Topshop that looks just as badass.
You guys are probably getting bored of hearing me say this but Mango is without a doubt one of my FAVOURITE high street stores right now. I’m a total Zara girl, but lately Mango has been making me have hearts in my eyes every time I stalk their website. Whilst on my weekly (ok daily) browse of the Mango site I spotted these beeeeeautiful mint green mules in the shoe section and I just had to have them! I’m such a sneaker and boots kinda girl, but these babies got my attention and I just knew that I couldn’t leave them behind. I can’t wait to style these shoes up with a pair of cropped jeans and cute graphic t-shirt, I also kind of feel like I need to find a bag to match them (eek) because the colour of these mules is just stunning! As well as swooning over Mango and Aritzia I also picked up a couple of bits from ASOS which I can’t wait to wear! These Vans Old Skool Sneakers are definitely one of my favourite items that I’ve picked up this season. I remember being obsessed with Vans in high school and now I think I might have rekindled my love for their shoes once again.
The pieces that I’ve mentioned and shown in this blog post are just a few of the items that I’ve picked up over the last month so definitely make sure you head on over to my YouTube channel and watch my Fashion Haul to see what else I’ve added to my wardrobe! This blog post is the last instalment my Spring Trilogy series so definitely scroll back to see the other two Spring-themed posts that I’ve put together (click to see my Think Pink makeup tutorial and find out what I picked up in my biggest drugstore haul EVER!).
