Oufit | P' Springs.

Parka // H&M.
Cami // Zara.
Shorts // Motel.
Bag // Zara.
Shoes // Zara.
Lip pencil // MAC High energy.

Palm prints and Parka's; Two P's to be associated with this Spring! An orange lip is another but that wasn't in keeping with the title..
These are items I reach for time after time when Spring rears its blossoming head and this year has been no different. These printed shorts have an obvious referencing to a destination I'm sure we'd all rather be right now; Palm Springs. Whereas a parka is the perfect light-weight cover-up for the more windy weather we have here in the UK.
As mine won't be stocked anymore here's some great alternatives by:

Outfit | Something new, Something Blue.

Faux-Leather // Topshop.
Grey Tee // Zara.
Midi-skirt // SoInFashion.
Heels // Zara.
Bag // Zara.

My Spring wardrobe was never going to be complete until I found the right item in that shade of pastel blue, so when I came across this floaty fifties midi skirt it ticked all the boxes. SoInFashion.co.uk have answered our fast-fashion prayers by delivering on-trend pieces at 'It'd be rude not to' prices and this skirt is just a snippet. If you're on the hunt for pastel PVC, pretty playsuits or a mini celine-worthy bag in this years hot colour, Pistachio; Thats where its at!

Outfit | Minimal Effort.

Vintage Levi Jacket.
Linen shirt // H&M Mens.
Faux-Leather shorts // Only.
Bag // FrontRowShop.com
Poolslides // Topshop.

For those Day-to-nights' when you only have the energy/time to apply minimal effort- Just add heels!
Monochrome is always a fail-safe classic; a key accessory or print will keep it up-to-date.

Outfit | The Staple Black Bag.

Jumper // Vintage.
Lace Shorts // Oh My Love London.
Bag // Daniel Footwear*.
Cleated sole sandals // Linzi.

Be prepared to see a lot more of this tote! The perfect minimal black bag is something I'm sure is on many of our capsule check lists. And if it wasn't on yours, don't tell me it now isn't after laying eyes on the above? This beauty from Daniel Footwear delivers what I look for in a staple bag. It's black, large, has efficient handles, pockets, is simplistic yet brimming with key details; gold hardware and suede side panels. I could go on all day, but instead I'll let the bag do the talking.. in every future post from today onwards!
Sorry not sorry.

Outfit | Blanc Canvas

Linen Shirt // H&M Mens.
White Jeans // Zara.
Vintage Levi's Jacket.
Bag // Zara.
Heels // Zara.
Watch // Kenneth Cole.
Midi rings // H&M.
There's something about white that screams Spring.. And leaves me screaming at suspect spill-ers with the intentions of adding some colour to my all white outfit! Something I had narrowly avoided until coming in to contact with a Mcdonalds a few days ago. Lets just say me and Ketchup are not the best of friends. See my Twiiter for details and a good laugh at my expense!

So whilst my white jeans are soaking in cold water, lets talk white shirts.
I'd been on the hunt for that perfect 'Men's fit, feminine fabric, can dress up or dress down, just stepped off the Wang runway' style of shirt. Are you still with me?
It was a huge ask I know, so of course when I couldn't find an exact match (on a highstreet budget), I did what any other desperate blogger would do and bought two! The first being this linen H&M mens shirt. It ticks most of the boxes, surprisingly its Men's fit.. has that effortless 'I'll be waiting on my Yacht' look but is lacking the luxury feminine touch. Fortunately I'm a girl, so there needn't be any mistake there.
