Seasonal Staples: Spring

It's not often I get excited about Spring dressing but I think the onslaught of dusty pink items in the shops may have swayed me, because I've really enjoyed picking up new Spring pieces these past couple of months. 

Denim

It's no secret that I've always been a bit fan of denim, but I feel like Spring is the season for all things blue (or black, or white, I'm really not picky). It all started with the need to add a couple of new pairs of jeans to my collection, but it seems to have reached the point where I'm having to physically restrain myself from buying any more.

My absolute favourites have to be the Zara Jeans of Dreams – who can resist that embroidery? – and my Levi Wedgie Jeans which, I can confirm, don't actually give you a wedgie and are actually super comfy.

I'm also verging on Britney and Justin's 2001 look with my new found appreciation for double denim, which was only spurred on by the addition of my new favourite denim jacket.

I'm now on the hunt for the perfect pair of white jeans. Everyone who knows me has told me to steer clear, I'm a notorious spiller. I say that's what Vanish is for.

Pretty in Pink

Not the classic John Hughes film, but almost as good. I feel like I'd be doing the season a disservice if I didn't pay homage to the colour of the moment. Blush pink that is, if you haven't been keeping up. 

I used to think that pink was a no go for because, you know, ginger. I was wrong. Or maybe I just stopped caring. Either way these soft dusky tones have added some much needed colour to my otherwise black/white/grey wardrobe. 

New additions include my beloved Whistles Rivington clutch, just updated in this dreamy nude/pink colour, rose gold H&M sunglasses, and this beautiful Zara pleated coat

Kick Flare

We could argue that maybe I'm using this as an excuse to talk about denim even more. We wouldn't be wrong. 

Since the day 11-year-old Fern debated whether skinny jeans were going to make me look to 'emo' – I decided no – I've sworn by skinny jeans. There were days not too long ago where, if I didn't have to struggle for five minutes to get a pair of jeans on, they just weren't skinny enough.

But now, well I think I've seen the light. It started with mom jeans, and then straight leg and then I thought, hey why not try a kick flare. So try a kick flare I did, and I've not looked back. Noted, I will only buy ones marked cropped, thanks to my short legs and my need for jeans to be ankle length or above, but I think I'm in love.

Accessories 

I find myself struggling with footwear once Spring hits. I spend the entirety of Autumn and Winter in ankle boots that, when it starts to get a little too warm for them, I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to put on. I'm not usually big on trainers, but I picked up a pair of white ASOS plimsolls a few weeks back and they've hardly left my feet since!

I also treated myself to this rather colourful Kate Spade bag for my birthday. I opted for this super bright orange/red shade so that I can get away with monochrome forever more, without being judged for my lack of colour.
