I just can’t wait for it to be Spring

Please say you sang the title in the tune of “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” from The Lion King, because other than my ramblings, my awful puns are all you’ll get out of this post.

I just really want it to be Spring. Like properly Spring. With blossom trees and blue skies. Not just saying it’s technically spring, while the central heating is still nearly on full.

I know how much we’re all fed up of the British weather. After dealing with the -14 temperatures in Prague, I never thought I’d be cold again. But wind and snow is a little different to a sunny day with a cold chill.

Also, I can’t be the only one who’s reaction to the weather is completely different when I’m on holiday?? Like being freezing at home sucks, but put me in a different city and I’m loving it.

But now I’m so ready for Spring.

Winter is too cold and summer is too hot. Spring and autumn are the good middle ground seasons.

Everything feels fresher when we hit spring. I think it’s the sudden jump in brightness. From short days to long and from few flowers to hundreds. The days are so much lighter and colourful.

Spring is definitely my favourite, but I feel the same about autumn. The natural colours all around are what I adore. It’s the transition seasons that I have a soft spot for.

I feel like I can be the freest with my style in these months. Big coats all zipped up aren’t needed. Layer after layer is a no no. Colourful tees, midi skirts and pretty dresses can come out and I feel like I can dress exactly how I want. Without having to worry about being too cold or too hot.

There’s some pieces in my wardrobe that I miss wearing so much. I’ve been feeling a little bored with my style lately, so when I can finally get out all my favourite warmer clothes, I’ll be buzzing.

I only bought this vintage dress last weekend but I’m soooo excited to wear it. I wasn’t sure about it at first because of the shape of it – v necks aren’t usually that flattering on me. And the pattern made me a little nervous, but I was so pleasantly surprised once I’d tried it on!!

It’s a bit big but I think that adds some weird edge to it. I can’t wait to try out different looks with it. It’s gonna be a challenge but one I’m welcoming with open arms because agh, it’s so pretty! And just perfect for spring.

Styling a floral dress in the colder months

dress

Midi and maxi dresses have a place in my heart, so I don’t want to stop at summer and put them away for a year. I’m going to keep my legs out until they physically freeze and fall off.

Okay, not literally.

But I recently bought this midi dress from Nobody’s Child in a sale. Mainly because I was feeling sad that I had to return a beautiful pair of trousers because I read the sizing wrong online. So what do I do? Naturally buy more clothes online, of course.

The floral design of this dress is really simple, it actually reminds me of some wallpaper I saw once… I think it’s the cut of the dress which makes it so damn cute.

I decided to go for the classic tee shirt under dress look. Even though I’m braving my legs out as it gets colder, I’m not a complete moron. (Although some might disagree).

Then I topped it off with my trusted vintage coat. I should really get a new one now, to mix things up a bit. And I have been looking, but you know when you’re just not sure if anything ever will be as good as what you’ve already got? Because, well, do I really need a new one? Yeah, that’s the state I’m currently in.


Now it’s down to the feet with my Polley Dr Martens. Not my favourite, but my go to pair as they compliment pretty much every outfit going.

It’s such a cosy little look, if I do say so myself.

Minus the white tee, plus a pair of heeled boots, a leather jacket and some accessories, this dress will be perfect for a night out as well.
