Spring Essentials Makeup & OOTD

Whenever I speak to friends back home (in England) I’m swiftly reminded Spring feels far away still, so forgive these sunny pics if you find yourself living somewhere a little grey at the moment, and find some solace in the fact that you probably have access to Galaxy caramel (I don’t) and all will be right with the world again! Moving on swiftly, so spring in one way or another is here and I’ve definitely found a little repetition in my wardrobe and so I thought I’d share a few of my favourite outfits for spring.

To sum it up briefly it would be blazer, t-shirt and jeans combo with either hints of red accessories or gold heirloom inspired jewellery. Ground breaking I know. I think certain looks are classic for a reason, they don’t require a lot of thought, feel comfortable and are easy to put together. Since cutting my hair I’ve become obsessed with collecting sunglasses and recently found an amazing sunglass site called Shade Supply, that sell these super affordable sunnies (the ones I’m wearing above). This style is very similar to my Celine ones that I don’t think they sell anymore, and they’re a hell of a lot cheaper!

My Missoma Necklaces are also another staple in my wardrobe, and probably one of my most worn jewellery items this year, in addition to gold hoop earrings bought from Melrose Trading Post Market. Another pop of red with these red topshop boots I got on sale (similar here) with blue denim has also made a regular appearance in my spring wardrobe this year. I like the pointy shape of these especially with s straight leg denim. This was a Zara blazer  (similar here) that has a very similar vibe to this Tibi one but for a fraction of the cost. I like the hint of mustard and brown colours that run through the check, and love how it looks with white tees and blue denim also.

Me and my sister share an unhealthy obsession for blazers, and every time either of us find one we love we immediately have to send a pic to the other. She introduced me to this grey very fine dogtooth blazer (as seen in the top image), which believe it or not was a piece from H&M’s premium collection (sadly not available anymore but similar here). This has to my staple piece, it contains wool so the quality is beautiful, but its still surprisingly lightweight. I love its boxy oversized shape and the sleeve piping detail has a really nice detail. Paired with my Topshop straight leg jeans, a mens tee and vintage red patent Tods Loafers, this is the perfect mix of smart casual, at least as I understand it.

This last look has been my go to for smarter occasions and shows how easily you can add heels to a jeans and blazer combo, worn here with my husbands shirt tucked in to make things feel a little more dressy, yet still somewhere in the realms of casual. This blazer is from & Other Stories and its the warmest of all my blazers, great for evenings when it gets a little chillier. It also looks amazing sat ontop of shoulders giving all kinds of Bianca Jagger vibes. Worn here with a vintage Chanel bag and a bit of eye makeup, i’m ready for date night.

The Topshop straight leg jean and Orson jeans have been a favourite in my wardrobe for the past year especially in the cropped ankle style. When it comes to denim, Topshop have been my go to for a while now. I know my size so can order online, and the fit is much more flattering than many other premium denim brands I’ve tried. In fact in all three photos I’m wearing the same Topshop straight leg jean but in different washes and I love them all!

When it comes to style inspiration I love Anine Bing, I have my eye on a few of her designs at the moment. Reformation is great for timeless pieces and Freda Salvador makes beautiful shoes. I love Lou Dillon and Jeanne Damas, I’d happily trade wardrobes with them in a heart beat! My style fluctuates depending on my environment and what mood I’m in, but these are the kind of outfits I always come back to for spring. What’s your go to style for spring?
