Spring Time!

I love Spring, it is my favourite time of year, you have finally finished the Winter and you have got the promise of the rest of the Summer! Today is officially the first day of Spring and I wanted to celebrate that with a quick post on the things I am most excited about in the next few weeks!  

1) The return of Wedges! Finally we can say goodbye to our show boots and socks and embrace getting the toes out! (although hand in hand with this means pedicures ladies! I will do a post on my fav nail colours v soon)
Wedges are an essential part of your spring/summer wardrobe, they can be styled with shorts, chino's, dresses, jeans and are fab at lengthening the leg. But always be careful not to have too many straps across and around the ankle as this can stump legs. 
The wedges above are from New Look-£27.99 Floral/ £24.99 Rafia and Boohoo- Cream suede £35/ Blue Suede £36.99
2) Pastels! I love pastel colours and they rear there head every spring, but this year it was serious, the catwalks were dominated with ice cream hues, think Louis Vuitton's stunning carousel! I have been itching to get them on for weeks, as you will have seen from my outfit pictures, but now we are "out of winter" feel safe to get them on as much as you can! 
I loved the pastel Clutches above they are from ASOS £30 I can't pick a colour so want them all! The gorgeous jumper is from Kate Moss's range for Mango and is £22.99

3)Silk Scarf tops! This is a trend that can only be worn in the warmer months, so enjoy it while it lasts. There will be lots of versions of this trend on the high street but so far my favourite is H&M. 
The fab yellow paisley silk top is from H&M and is a complete steal at £7.99 

4)Light weight Jacket and Blazers! I love putting away my winter coats for another year, there is something therapeutic about putting clothes away for a season, and it is best way to get a good rotation of your wardrobe. When looking for my new jackets this spring I was instantly drawn to the amazing digital print and blue River Island blazer £45, it will a perfect way of styling up any outfit. And for a good all rounder that will go with everything I love the coral blazer from Miss Selfridges £40

5) Print Trousers! I admit I have looked out of the window and thought to myself, do I dare to wear the print trouser today? Normally the Manchester weather puts me firmly in my place and I go for more rain friendly bottoms! However, now it is time to unleash them on the world, if you are brave go for full on matching print jacket and trousers, but a simple top with a bright belt will also work really well. 
I have picked out a black and green pair from River Island £30 and a rose coloured pair from ASOS £21 

I hope you guys like my choices and are as geared up for spring as I am. With all these great trends to try out, lets hope we get the weather to match!
