Spring Staples |

Transitioning between Winter and Spring is probably my favourite time of the year for fashion. I love classic staple pieces, so transitioning between seasons is a great opportunity to bring out the leather jacket and stripes. 

Scarves | You can't beat a scarf for adding a bit of colour to a monochrome outfit or for wrapping up warm in the evenings. I've never been one for scarves, but I do like to keep it simple with either a hounds tooth pattern or tartan.

Lightweight Cardigans | Light weight and perfect for layering especially If it isn't cold enough to need a jacket or you just want something to throw on, a lightweight cardigan is perfect especially for keeping your warm, but never so hot as to bring on those clammy winter sweats you get when you wrap up too much. I like pastels, monochrome and marl grey as a simple colour that matches the majority of my wardrobe. I tend to go for a long cut, oversized or bat wing in order to flatter my shape. 

Jeans | Black jeans to be specific. Even though I wear my Topshop Joni Jeans all year round, I find that during the spring, jeans are a great transitional piece on those days when it is too cold to wear a skirt . Black is a colour that runs throughout my wardrobe and black jeans is a staple item that should be in every girls wardrobe. 

Stripes | I LOVE stripes! To be honest I could wear stripes all year round and looking like a sailor is what I specialise in. However, I do think stripes work particularly well when paired with the above items. Short sleeved or 3/4's, a monochrome stripe or navy and white flatters curves as well as bringing a bit of style to catch the eye. 



  1. Agreeing with every single point and i'm so excited everyones thinking about spring now :D I love stripes and you can not go wrong with them! I also need to find myself the perfect cardigan! xx
