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.

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

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
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!
