Spring Revisions

Dressing for Spring can be tricky, especially when living in London.  Our days normally start off at a much cooler temperature luring us into donning our heavy knits, coats and fur lined boots, but by lunchtime we feel as though we’re having a bath with Satan, dripping in sweat because we’ve made a very wrong Sartorial decision.  So in today’s post I’ve put together a look which should see you through all stages of a British Spring day.

Put the push-up bras away ladies it’s not quite vest weather yet, we still need a little more substance to our clothing.  I recently came across this knitted top, but when I say knitted I don’t mean a chunky knit, it’s very loosely woven so incredibly breathable.  The sleeves are short and wide, allowing for some serious pitt ventilation, which is essential when travelling on London’s underground let me tell you.  Let’s not fail to see how cute this top is, we’ve got some fringing and a touch of ethnic embroidery adding just the right amount of ‘it’s almost summer’ vibes.  I’ve teamed this with a pair of ripped detail jeans, which are always a pretty good option for Spring.  Jacket wise, I bring a lightweight one out with me in the morning, like this khaki ‘Shacket’ (Shirt/jacket hybrid) and accessorise my waist with it in the afternoon, after all belts are so overrated 😉  Now, I think it’s safe for our toes to come out of hibernation and I for one have been stocking up on my Summer footwear, one of my most recent additions being these lace up block heel sandals.  They’re the perfect height for day to day wear and the straps are soft preventing a blister party on your feet.

      Hi Rach, I’m wearing a size 10 as I wanted it so be pretty oversized. They’re not fitted anyway but I would size up if you want an even loser fit x

    Love this look and the practicality of it ! Im always looking for wide sleeves for that very reason !! Ha ha…love the metal details on the shoes, I went for a few similar pairs from asos because yours looked too pink on the website, they look a nice pinky beige on you and match your bag perfectly ..xxx

      Yeh I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived and they were not as pink as on the site 🙂 x

      Hi Lilly, I have a size 41. I’m a 40.5 but the 40 were just slightly too small so I rounded up. Hope that helps x
