HOORAY SPRING IS HERE!! After months of cold and awful dreary weather, we are finally getting some sunshine! As my fellow Brits will testify, there was no summer last year. So it wasn’t comparable to “the” year without a summer, it was just rubbish. May: wettest in 100 years. June: coldest in history. July: similar. August … you get the picture. Yes the British really do love to talk about the weather and use phrases like “awfully good”.
So now that the weather is finally warming up, it’s time to pack those monochromes away (for now), make the most of the weather and bring out the florals!
Here are some of my faves for a wardrobe refresh:
I take back what I said about packing the monochromes away – couldn’t resist this white leather skirt. I’ve always wanted to try a leather skirt, and white is perfect because it’s not as standout as black but still looks sophisticated. Plus white is a great colour for summer. That said, wearing leather in the heat is probably not a wise idea…!
I would pair it with a simple white shirt, black courts and let the accessories do the talking.
This skirt from ASOS looks much more expensive than it really is (£32).
Update with a three sentence review: I ordered this skirt from ASOS a few days ago. The pattern is nice, the quality is so-so (elasticated waist !!!!), but unfortunately the skirt falls just below the knee (as it does on the model), which is an unflattering lengh on me. And it can’t be shortened because that would cut off the pattern so back to ASOS it went 😦 Boo.
Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather!
