OOTD: Spring is here?

Maybe I’m just being optimistic but I think London hinted at Spring this past week.
Not that I need much of an excuse to start bringing out the S/S items in my wardrobe!
It was nice being able to wear this latest addition though, a skirt that screams Spring.
Purple & Green are my two favourite colours, so you can see why this called to me.
The material and pattern really have a vintage vibe to them, but not so much that it’s difficult to coordinate.
I also love the detailing on the buttons of the skirt, it just seems to add a little extra something to it.
It really just made me feel very cutesy, which is not something I’ve felt for a while, due to my love of black.
I can’t wait for warmer weather when I get my legs out and possibly a vest top too – shock horror!
That said, I still had to pop on a cardigan over top of this outfit, otherwise I would have frozen.
Did you spot my post all about China Doll Boutique’s latest pop-up earlier this week?

OOTD: Life in Colour

Today’s OOTD marks the beginning of my birthday celebrations.
It may not be my birthday until Tuesday, but my family are visiting this weekend.
That means a mini shopping spree and an excuse to go eat out at some of my favourite places.
I also decided to try out a different kind of layout for my outfit posts today.
This way seemed more appealing to me and I also liked being able to include a bit more detail.
I think the trousers may have inspired my need for more detail because they are so amazingly gorgeous!
I grabbed them in H&M’s January sales, and it was love at first sight. I just love the patterns and colours.
They also went well with my new badass (faux)leather sleeve top from ASOS, which I also got in the sales.
I’d been after the top for a while and I’m so glad I waited as I got it for less than half price!
What do you think of the new ootd post layout?
