So the new season has finally graced us with its presence and I’ve decided to grace the blogosphere with mine. I’m back – for the time being anyway and I want to share with you some things about Spring(s). (I tried).
Its the second official month of Spring here in Australia and today (20th of Oct) has been the warmest its been yet, so its FINALLY felt like spring. I did one of these for Autumn and loved it so I thought, why not ease into blogging by doing an easy post!
Spring is the season full of new flowers, baby animals and usually a lot of weddings and lovely dovey events. This outfit showcases some gorgeously sophisticated pieces whilst still having a romantic feel to it. A lot of blues, whites/creams, and nude pieces offset by tan and gold accents in my opinion just scream Spring. I would wear this to a wedding, engagement party, tea party, bridal shower or even date night – it is easy to swap out the heels for some flats, too!
Here I’ve given two outfit choices, both involving light wash denim and off the shoulder top cropped style tops. Soft colours and floral is a must for the warmer months (in my opinion). the first outfit places some distressed jeans which are quite on the skinny side with a floral crop top that has elastic synching at the waist and cuffs. Pairing an outfit like this with the cutout lace up flats looks like a perfect outfit for a picnic in the park.
The second option pairs a structured denim skirt with a beautiful ‘cold shoulder’ crop top. It can be worn as is or the shirt tucked into the skirt for an edgier look. I paired this look with some pineapple flats for a pop of fun. Both outfits can be accessorised with the same brown bag and the cardigan for those cooler nights.
Same White T
Having a few white tops in your closet is a must for all seasons. But for spring I like to accessories a basic white top with some colourful bottoms! I basically live in maxi skirts in the warmer months but if I can find the right one, I think I would be willing to experiment with the midi skirt. I just have to find one that won’t make me look short! The soft pastel colours on both the skirts makes these outfits feminine and flirty but also quite graceful. Pairing them with the tan lace-up flats adds a bit of punch to the outfit without being obnoxious.
These shorts are to die for. I am obsessing hard over the leaf print trend that is happening at the moment and I think these would look stunning with the cute flats, simple tee and the cut out glasses. Very on trend.
Mix and Maxi
As I said I live in maxi skirts/dresses when its warmer. Spring in Australia tends to heat up fast so light airy fabrics are the way to go. The first outfit has long sleeves making it perfect for an evening event. The fabric is light enough that it won’t weigh you down, but also adds a little something to keep the chill off. I’m getting some massive Adele vibes from look one. I’m also loving the 60s / 70s trend of the platform shoes thats creeping its way back.
Look two is something that I’d wear to a picnic or a wine tour, brunch with the girls something casual that needs to look like you’ve made an inch of effort. Let the dress do all the work for you with a gorgeous print that is interesting, but not too obnoxious.
Look three is just a casual look that can be worn daily, or to a wedding! (like all these outfits really) I like to synch everything in at the waist (short torso problems). I love using brown belts to do that. They’re not as formal as a black belt but not as ‘pop of colour-y’ as a statement belt. They make the outfit look put together.
This is (more or less) what I’m wearing today. Skinny jeans, a v-neck black top, black floral kimono and some converse. This is what I wear on the daily, matched with a white handbag and my phone. These sunglasses from Quay Australia, I’m definitely going to have to get my hands on, and I need a pineapple phone case in my life. Looks like this can be dressed up or down. The kimono is really the star of the show. I like to dress my outfits up with outter-wear.
Gold and tan/brown accessories are a must in my opinion! Warm colours to match the warm weather. Be sun smart though and get yourself a gorgeous floppy hat!
Chokers are massively on trend at the moment so I just had to add some in. Surprisingly they can really finish off an outfit.
Don’t forget a signature fragrance. I love the Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline range. So if you ever come across it, I suggest giving it a spritz!
It feels good to be back at the blog again, hopefully I’ll be posting more regularly, I’ve missed it. What outfit is your favourite? I would love to know!
