Let’s pretend it’s an appropriate time to get excited about Spring and WARMTH already and ignore the fact that it snowed for 10 minutes yesterday and we’ll probably be trapped in a blizzard by Easter. In theory, it’s time to start thinking Spring thoughts. And spring fashion. Pinterest gets you thinking ahead like that. Apologies that some of these are OTT summery, but I tried to choose things with spring ‘vibes’, not involving ‘florals for spring’. Without further ado!
Anklets. Why not live life on the edge and flash a bit of ankle, ooo. Love the combination of dainty anklets with casual shoes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an anklet worn in Winter. They’re just one of those ‘Summer things’. Might crack mine out to wear with jeans so I can pretend it’s Spring in March when it’s 100% not.

White dresses. I am dying to crack out my handmade one again – it’s probably one of my favourite items I’ve made/own! White dresses just have that fresh spring-y feel, even if worn with over knee socks and leather jackets.
Denim jackets. I bought one for an absolute steal in TK Maxx last year and promptly forgot what I ever did without it. Even if layered over jumpers, they still have completely different vibes to leather jackets or other coats. very much a transitional piece if I’m gonna get all ‘fashion blogger-y’ about it!
Blue and white stripy shirts. Maybe it’s their nautical vibes, I don’t know. Something about them just feels nice and fresh and not at all wintery, but don’t require ditching the jeans just yet. Really want that M&S bardot style top!
Crochet. Obviously, OBVIOUSLY, I’m gonna big up this one. Can’t wait to have the time to whip up a couple of little crochet projects of my own already. Spring/Summer is time swap the chunky cable knit cardigans for lacy crochet ones in much more ‘flowy’ styles. So boho.
These blue skies really have conned me haven’t they? Time to get back to reality after that little detour into ‘what I would wear if I lived in California’. What are you looking forward to this Spring/Summer?
