Ohhh I’m so excited about spring, warmer temperatures and SUNSHINE! The weather today was the best way to get over the post-holiday blues from my snow holiday with my parents. I didn’t plan on going full red, white and blue when I selected my outfit pieces, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. One of my colleagues commented that I looked very “nautical”. I’ll take that, I think it was meant in a nice way!
I’m still getting used to the cropped flare trouser style that’s all the rage at the moment. I love the style, and there are tons of bloggers I follow who are nailing the look. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m excited to work on more looks in the new season. I picked up this pair from M&S in the sales at the end of last year. The high waistline lends itself nicely to a cropped cardigan, and I love the colour of the blue denim.
I picked up these flat ballet pumps on holiday, from the clothing section of a supermarket. My folks always stop off at a large hypermarket on the way home to pick up some wine and sweets to bring back to the UK. I saw these shoes hanging up in the clothing section and couldn’t resist throwing them in the trolley. The insole is a lovely soft leather, so they’re really comfy to walk in, and they go perfectly with this outfit!
This striped T shirt from Oasis is a neutral wardrobe staple, and the stripes give this outfit it’s nautical theme! My cropped cardigan is another Collectif sale purchase. I love the embroidery detail above the buttons. Finally, I threw this bleach wash denim jacket over the top. A denim jacket is an absolute wardrobe staple, and I was so pleased when I found this one in Primark. I don’t tend to shop in Primark that much any more for a few reasons, but bagging a bargain jacket that goes with so much was definitely a good purchase.
