Scribble Statement Earrings, Marks & Spencer

As regular readers know Marks & Spencer’s has (and always will be) my go-to. I love everything and spend most of my money there: from homeware to VPL-free pants, denim and earrings they're my one-stop shop.


How To Have A Healthier Relationship With Social Media

I took a little Instagram hiatus over Christmas and felt all the better for it. So much so that I now have a little break each weekend too as I find it to be quite a bit too overwhelming: both with the contributing content and scrolling through the (seemingly) never ending perfect posts.


Best Spring Skirts

Tie Front Jumper, Marks & Spencer; Multi-Stripe Spring Skirt, Studio by Preen at Debenhams; Mini Leather Bag, & Other Stories

Today I left the house without tights and only wearing a trench coat. Yes you read that right. WITHOUT a woollen coat OR, TIGHTS. Today finally felt how a spring day should and I was able to wear my new striped skirt at long, long last.

Mainly due to the fact that I've found that a great skirt really offers a happy medium to your wardrobe. It's versatile, and will look as good worn with a jumper and ankle boots now as it will with a tee or a shirt when it eventually warms up.

I fell in love with this style months ago and shot it very recently within an editorial I styled for LOOK magazine so when it became available in store I quickly purchased it. I loved the asymmetric style combined with the bold red, white and blue striped and knew it'd work oh-so well with everything in my current wardrobe.

It's the type of skirt that makes you shamelessly beg your poor colleagues to photograph you awkwardly in over your lunch break. The skirt that you've already decided that you can rely upon for all summer events that crop up at the last minute and leave you stressed and stuck on what to wear. It's gonna be this skirt.every.single.time.

It's from Studio by Preen at Debenhams which is my all time favourite high street/designer collaboration and season after season remains my favourite collection.

I'm also reallllly into this button-front black skirt, also by Studio by Preen which I've had patiently waiting in my basket, saved until payday.

Skirts had, up to about three years ago, always been my thing. If I wasn't wearing a dress I'd be wearing a skirt. I was super feminine in my styling and through my absolute hatred of my legs (not having 'the gap' seriously bothered me for quite a few years and I tried my best to fake having slim legs under skirts and dresses so noone would ever know whether my thighs touched or not. This was of course a very silly way to live and when I eventually moved onto another insecurity jeans and trousers became an everyday fixture in my life and wardrobe.

My love of jeans and trousers over the last few months has considerably grown out of hand and I've completely ran out of storage. So, I've of course started to delve back into skirts and dresses and re-start my little collection.

If, like me, you're bored of jeans and are oh-so ready to brave bare legs - it is March after all... - here's a little edit of six of the best spring skirts you can shop now...

Trending: Topshop's Best Floral Dresses

Paisley Floral Dress, Topshop; Mini Leather Bag, & Other Stories

Bold, bright, brash and oversized Topshop’s floral dresses are really packing a punch this season.

From rodeo-inspired midi dresses to vibrant bohemian styles there’s a dress for every mood and occasion: helping you brighten up every occasion from your cousin’s wedding to a dreary Monday in the office.

I’m especially fond of the retro housewife floral styles, which were a real hit across the catwalks and the resurgence of vintage-look florals has thankfully also been a huge hit on the high street too. Topshop’s ditsy florals are toughened up by buttoned detailing, side-slits or ruffles as, when it comes to florals, more is always more

No longer restricted by season or occasion florals can slot into any gals wardrobe, with oh-so many unexpected prints and plenty of attitude to pick from. But, because summer quite simply wouldn’t be summer without a sea of florals, pretty dresses and romantic shapes there’s never been a better time to shop the new season favourites so, tick of tea dresses, corset dresses and maxi styles now before they sell out…

The ONLY Dress You'll Need This Spring

Button Front Dress, £19.99, New Look 

When you consider the most easy-to-wear, versatile and flattering piece in your wardrobe the initial items that come to mind are love-worn jeans, ankle boots and a classic Breton tee. However if, like me, you've worn the aforementioned pieces non-stop over this weird never-ending winter and are oh-so ready to mix it up then consider a new, fresh staple for spring: the pinafore dress.

Yes, a pinafore dress.

I'll be the first to admit that I've previously always been slightly cautious of the pinafore dress as a piece. To be totally honest I've always felt slightly too old to wear one and that they're a bit too casual for brunch and far too casual for the office. That's until I stumbled across this sweet buttoned front black pinafore dress in the new in section of New Look: everything changed and I'm completely converted.

My newfound love of pinafore dresses is solely down to the dark button detailing all down the front of this lovely little dress and how it's subtly cut to cinch you in at the waist. Oh so flattering and  under £20!

A pinafore, I've rather quickly learnt and fully embraced, goes with quite literally everything and anything. Lending itself oh-so well to endless low-maintenance and low-fuss yet suitably put-together outfits. You can quite literally wear it over anything and anything and also over nothing at all, should it take your fancy.

Pair yours with ankle boots and thin grey knit now, switching to a short sleeved Breton and trainers when it warms up! If there's one thing I've learnt this week its that a pinafore dress is a real hardworking staple that'll go through spring and beyond.

If I've converted you to love pinafore dresses as much as I do that quickly there's luckily a plethora on the high street with tartan midi styles and cute caramel cord options... here's five fun styles to shop now...
