Today I thought I would write about my current 3 favourite spring Outfits. I find spring a difficult season, especially in Scotland. It’s too cold in the morning and you still need about 10 layers but by lunchtime, you’re sweating and wishing you hadn’t put on such a bleak winter outfit. I also find spring difficult as I don’t like to purchase clothes in this season. I’m over buying jumpers and winter clothes by January and I’d rather be buying clothes for summer.
This is why I like to have a spring clean of my wardrobe in March. I get rid of pieces I know won’t be worn in summer, anything that’s gone a bit tatty over winter and look out all my in-between clothes. Everything in this post has been bought in the last year, I’ll try my best to link to similar pieces but you probably won’t be able to buy the exact same item. I more want this blog post to get you thinking about what is already in your wardrobe for spring.
Up first is my favourite outfit. This is so simple but it does really stand out. The pink dungaree dress is BDG from Urban Outfitters and I believe I spent £46 on it. When I purchased this I was so scared it would make me look really young and I considered getting black instead but I am so happy I went for something a bit bolder. This kind of dress makes you look like you put in a bit of effort and it works all year round. In the colder months, I wear this with tights, jumpers and coats. In summer I team this with a white t-shirt and some nice kicks. What I love about this for spring is that if the weather does turn around by lunchtime I can take the tights off and it works. I would always recommend paying more for a denim product as there is a big quality difference, however, there are some brands that offer cheaper alternatives if you’re not sure about the bright colour. Here are some similar pieces;
I’ve paired this dress with some Air Force 1’s and the rest of the outfit is from Primark.
My next outfit is all from Primark – minus the boots – I think this full outfit totals to about £7. The skirt was only £3 and I picked it up over Easter weekend so it might still be in stores! I’m not sure how to style this over summer for just a casual day but for a Spring day, this is perfect. I’ve just paired this with a basic T-shirt, tights and Chelsea boots. I absolutely love the colours in this skirt, the blue really stands out and I am sure it’ll look great in a pub garden with a nice pair of heeled sandals when better weather appears. Since this is from Primark I can’t link it but I have found similar skirts that I like;
- ASOS Chelsea Boots – £38.00
- River Island Petite skirt – £10
- Topshop Ditsy Bouquet Frill Mini Skirt – £29
And the last outfit is my absolute fave. This is something I wear once a week from April until October – basically until it’s too cold. This ‘shacket’ (shirt jacket, I’m not sure how I feel about that word but that’s what this is called) was purchased from New Look last summer. I am all for the shirt jacket, it’s thick enough to actually keep you warm on a cooler day but thin enough to enjoy wearing if it becomes hotter. I tend to wear this with my eBay Kylie Jenner t-shirt or Levi’s t-shirt simply for the clash between the red and the green. For everyday wear, I pair this outfit with my NMD’s but if I am going out to a pub garden or a bbq then I will wear heels with this outfit. Depending on how hot the weather is I will swap out the jeans for a pair of black denim shorts.
If you are going to purchase a Levi’s t-shirt I recommend the men’s ones, they last soo much longer and are a thicker cotton. I’m a size 8 and wear a men’s small.
- Boohoo Camo Jacket – £28
- Levi T-Shirt – £20
- NMD CS2 – £149.95
- Kylie Jenner ‘Like Realizing Stuff’ Tee
