Spring Fashion Edit ft. Zehumara

Oh lordy lord, this weekend could not come fast enough. You guys ever get weeks where you feel snowed under? That’s kind of my life at the moment. Italy cannot get here soon enough – your girl needs a pause button. (And the wonders of Italian food . . . that’s a big one.)

Hello, my beloved internet cult-followers. I hope you’re all enjoying your spring, your sunshine and your Saturday/Sunday, depending when you’re reading this. With the arrival of the sun, I thought a rather convenient post to bring you would be a spring fashion edit! No points for originality – but bonus points for consumerism.

Who doesn’t love some good old internet shopping? Plus . . . any excuse to buy new clothes.

Today’s post is #3 in my collab month series – and is brought to you in collaboration with the lovely blog Zehumura. This blog is actually pretty new to me; she reached to collab and that’s how I discovered her. Humura Ruth (the blog’s writer) is a total fashionista, so if you’re looking to slay – I’d recommend giving her site a look!

Now, I could ramble, but let’s be brief and get to the thing we all really want to hear about: pretty clothes.

1. Lace

I have a confession that isn’t much of a confession: I love lingerie. I mean, I could easily spend £100s of it, but I live at home and I imagine my mother would start being very nosy if I was hanging pretty underwear out in the wash. Not to mention the mental scarring of my poor father. He has my brother as a child; that poor man has been through enough.

As soon as the warmer months start appearing, the trend I rock year after year is having a bit of lace peeking out of my outfits. I’m not brave enough to rock bralettes as tops on their own, but I love pairing them with another top.

Lace bralettes are absolutely to die for! I love minimal style a lot of the time, plus this look would be perfect for work!I'm obsessed with this simple chic style at the moment! Oversized shirts and blue boyfriend jeans are such a look - and the hint of the bralette adds a nice hint of lace. Perfect casual outfit for spring and summer! Also, stripes are always a fuck yes!

So my first spring trend? We gotta go with lingerie-style items!

White Lace and Pearl Bodysuit – ASOS – £34 // Pink Bodysuit – ASOS – £28

2. Cardigans

Nude cardigan – ASOS – £28

Call me a ninety-year-old nanny if you want, but cardigans are the shit. They’re comfy, they go with pretty much everything and they’re perfect for spring weather! Especially in England, where it’s warm enough to get rid of the winter coat . . . but definitely not warm enough to go without an outer layer.

 Plus, cardigans are total investments as you wear them year after year. So you aren’t spending, you’re investing.

3. Layered Necklaces

Layered necklaces are such a vibe.

Yes, that’s my conveniently located Instagram; you should give me a follow.

Here’s the thing – I love accessories. They can completely make an outfit. A simple tee and jeans? Basic, lounging round the house outfit, right? Add in a nice necklace, though, and that basic outfit is now super casual-cute.

4. Wide-Leg Trousers

Wide Leg Trousers – ASOS – £25

Guys, if I’m honest with you, I wait all year for the weather to warm up so it’s socially acceptable for me to wear wide-leg pants again. I love them. They’re classy, but comfortable, and flattering on every body shape. Plus, they make my bohemian little heart sing with their floatiness.

Also (and this is a big reason why I’m such a fan of them specifically at this time of year forwards) they’re super pretty, which means you can wear them to work . . . and out with your friends straight after you finish!

  1. I was scrolling down me reader and saw this post and the lace and lingerie outfits so I had to take a look. I am an old man but didn’t have the will power to pass it up. Anyway, I was reading the words to and I think you have a nice writing style, it is like you are having a real conversation with your readers. I use to blog years ago but stopped and am just now coming back so I am still working on my writing style before trying to build a following. The reason I followed your blog here is because I saw one of your post in a search and your writing style caught my eye. I wrote all this just to say keep up the good writing and you will be able to make a career at this blogging stuff. You don’t need to post this comment to your blog if you don’t want to, it is really just meant for you.

  2. Mia, we’re so alike. I am SUCH a sucker for lace and lingerie – combined they’re heavenly. I love all of your choices and again, cardigans are the clothing item of the future. They’ve been around for ages and I don’t think they get enough credit. I also love to wear a dress / skirt and tights in spring, it’s just such an easy combination to throw on to look instantly cute in. xx

  3. I’ve been loving layering all my necklaces, like over a white t shirt to uni it just makes me even feel more put together, though I’m still on the lookout for my perfect pair of high waisted wide-leg pants, I loved this post Mia xx

  5. Lacey lingerie is sooo pretty but I don’t think I’ve ever bought myself anything pricey!! I want to go spring shopping now! I just shot five outfits and realised I’m wearing the same jeans in 3 so I guess I need to go shopping! Oops…

  6. I love lace bralettes but also don’t feel comfortable enough to wear them on their own quite yet (or even because it is so cold outside I would probably freeze!). I am in need of a thick cardigan – all mine are thin summer ones. xx

      1. LOL, I think a manager at any “normal” job would be like “OH HELL NO” & I personally would never wear the lingerie in public but at work, YESSS!!! These are all so cute!! 😀

  7. I am such a thot because I used to wear bralettes as tops all the time. I was really into Free People atm and nobody told me the trend wasn’t for my 32E’s.

    Now that I’m a lady, I STILL love lingerie but I wear it more coquettishly. I am totally obsessed with every single item you’ve picked! Great wardrobe staples!
