I bought a couple of jumpers and a shirt last month to see me through the rest of the cooler days. I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s bored senseless of knitwear so I’m planning my Spring capsule spree very soon so I can start off April in something other than a grey jumper.
I’m much more flexible on my approach to having a curated wardrobe than I was when I first jumped on the band wagon a couple of years ago. However I still start the season having a good old rummage through what I already own and then make a list of the items or styles I’d like to be wearing over the coming months.
A Loose Shirt
I bought this H&M spotty shirt recently and it’s an absolute demon. No matter how many times I run the steam iron over it it’s creased within a minute of wearing it. Maybe I’ll have to shift it out for a leopard print one instead.
I’m always coveting the wardrobe of Alex from The Frugality and wonder whether I too should bag myself her Next Embroidered Top which I’m sure would see me all the way through to Autumn. It also comes in red. Hmm decisions.
Although I can’t escape the notion of Doris Day warbling at a window, I am getting on board with gingham and think I may have a place for it in my spring capsule. Zara’s Embroidered Gingham Top could be just the ticket especially with the embroidery
or maybe even this New Look Shirt Dress which is a really nice length as I often find shirt dresses are too short.More than likely I reckon I’ll play it safe with this Asos Midi with just a smidge of the cheeky stuff.
I’m pretty sure I buy a new striped top every season but as they’re so versatile they’re a must-have.
I’m in love with the cute ‘Hello You’ top from Sugar Hill Boutique (via John Lewis) but as it’s an oversized style I’m concerned it might look like it doesn’t fit? If in doubt there’s obviously always Boden.
I can’t imagine I’ll be getting my legs out before May but a couple of flippy dresses are always in my warmer weather capsule.
Currently I’m liking the clean lines and easy to throw on nature of this & Other Stories dress.
I wish this Zara embroidered number wasn’t so indecently short. For £60 you’d have thought they could add a few more inches. At only £29 this La Redoute long sleeved dress is a snip and the orange tassels are adorable, plus they always have some form of voucher code offer going on.
Cross Body Bag
I very nearly bought the tan version of the Oasis Monogram Bag as a camera bag but never got round to it. What I’d really like is a squidgy number for when I’m out and about. One that’s sizeable enough to fit all my usual paraphernalia in but not too bulky in a colour other than black. I spied the Cambridge Satchel Company Saddle Bag when I was in Cambridge at the weekend and it’s a real beauty but I fear it’s too rigid to be able to carry all my gubbins, not to mention I don’t have £120 to spend on a bag.
We’ve got so much other stuff to spend our money at the moment and have a deadline of the end of April to get the house looking ship-shape (will explain more very soon) so I can’t imagine I’ll be splashing out on too many things for the Spring season. How’s your wardrobe shaping up? Any new buys you’d like to share? I have to say too that I’m not really feeling the backless loafer trend. Anybody spotting any pairs that will change my mind?
