It’s finally here!! Oh yes indeed – spring has finally arrived. We’ve been fortunate enough for the last week, sun’s been out finally showing its kind face towards us living in Britain. A such, me, among the whole Britain, have been enjoying the pure lushness of going out, dining and shopping in the city
The whole idea of spring makes me go out and be involved in as many outdoor activities as I can. I want to peel off that winter indoory shell that’s been surrounding me for far too long.
Today’s outfit post is all about the true Spring essential, well according to me anyway. Crisp white is one of my favourite colours for any spring summer season. It’s pure, clean, elegant but most of all, it’s the quiet promise of warmer days ahead that lingers in the air every time temperature goes above 20 degrees Celsius. Yes, those days we get to hang out with friends at a beer garden and come back home with somewhat red faces, from the sun, not alcohol 😉
I tend to reach out purely for the classics, the perfect basics that go with my statement items-of-the-moment, these are the pieces I need in my wardrobe with the start of every spring summer season.
White colour is the spring summer essential that never goes out of style. Whilst the list of spring essentials can be quite exhausting, white is certainly a good starting point.
Fashion doesn’t have to be expensive and personal style certainly doesn’t come with a price tag. I’ve recently invested in this New Look top that was on sale and it stands for all of the above. I was smitten by the cut out frill that is not only so On Trend but also cute and elegant. The cut out pattern will definitely prove handy when I’m strutting along the beach on my summer holiday – 1 month and counting! So, be it work, a date, or the weekend, a white shirt is always an appropriate wear. Stock up. Seriously. Not only is a white blouse a wardrobe essential, it will never go out of style, but you’ll never outgrow this style either.
Another spring summer essential for this year is certainly “a ripped jeans style” and I’m one of those ladies that completely surrender to this fashion trend. I’ve been rocking these H&M jeans in my street style kinda post here: Here Comes The Sun Little Darling but I’ve also purchased these River Island ripped jeans and let me tell you one thing – these are totally bonkers, I must admit, there is more holes in them than material. I’ve styled these in this outfit post with a crip white shirt – the classy style that I so adore but I also paired them with an edgy Mango faux leather jacket as I went for a more rock’n’roll look.
I’m on a mission to get out more this year and discover new cities. I love walking through ancient towns, historic streets and discovering new architecture styles. I’m trying to walk more, explore the buildings, discover new paths, and, as you know, cafes and new quirky restaurants.
But sometimes I think to myself what it is like to be a tourist in my own city for the first time. Or even better, what are the hidden treasures of the British land? We all long to venture outside of UK discover those exotic towns but we also forget that Britain has its own history, cities that are drowning in their own historical vibes.
I want to become a tourist who sees the beauty of Britain in its raw form, the bare streets, the common buildings, tall towers and architectural elements. Don’t take me wrong, I still want to venture abroad but I’m on a mission to discover more of the UK too.
What’s your plan for this year and what’s your go to spring outerwear?
