STEPPING INTO SPRING

19/04/2017
If I’m being totally honest, I am very much struggling to know which day it is, what month we’re in, what the time is and… am I even back in England at the moment? Before you all think I have totally lost my marbles, let me explain. I have just arrived home from America where I spent 10 dreamy mc dreamboat days exploring NYC and Miami and whilst it was beyond incredible, I went from “LOL LOOK AT ME POSING IN MY LITTLE DRESS BUT OMG NYC YOU ACTUALLY FREEZING”  to “LOL LOOK AT ME TRYING TO LOOK POISED WHEN I SECRETLY HAVE SWEAT DRIPPING DOWN MY BACK BECAUSE MIAMI YOU A SEXY 28 DEGREES”.

So I’m struggling you see, to gauge any concept of time, the months, where I am – to put this into content, in the next few weeks I will also be visiting Florida again, Paris and Crete – what the weather is telling me and what the hell I should be wearing. What I do know however, thanks to the many many blossom tree snaps and omg bare leg weather instagram’s is that Spring has definitely Sprung in London and not only is it drop dead gorgeous, but the spring fashion is also pretty darn perfect too.

I’m not much of a trend girl, I wear what I want, when I want… but I do happen to have fallen into a trap of obsessing over all things ruffle, floral, embroidery, romantic sleeves and basically I just want it all.

Today’s look however, apart from being one of my all time faves touches upon many trends this season including florals, mules – omg I love a good mule – the classic cross body and the Look at me lips… all from one of my all time favourite stores, Debenhams. So grab a cuppa – and a handful of hobnobs – and let’s discuss my new favourite outfit, yeah?

Omg this dress.

Let me take a moment.

OMFG THIS DRESS IS MY FAVOURITE THING EVER.

Soz, I’m clearly finding my sartorial enthusiasm difficult to control today – alongside writing this on no sleep and a 8 hour flight which included two bratty kids in front and behind kicking my seat all night long [insert upside smile emoji here] – but this dress has become my wardrobe staple for spring. I am a red girl anyway – because red equals sass, no? – but this stunning floral number combines florals, bold colours and ruffles all in one. It’s the perfect “does it all” dress. Wear with flats in the day, heels at night, or some comfy mules and you have genuinely got yourself a look for every occasion. Perfection!
Then we have the mules. I am a big fan of mules and I love that there’s always a mini revival – I say mini because I and many others wear mules all year round too – every time the warmer months come around. The thing is, mules are just cool. They’re the not too try hard heel that makes every outfit look stylish and especially when going for a classic black pair, you really can’t go wrong! Also, did I mention that these are super comfy and lasted a 1 hour walk over bridges, through the busiest tourist spots and basically just hellish conditions and my feet were still in one piece/totally comfortable at the end of it? Yep, you read that right. [insert smug face here].
The quilted black crossbody bag has been a favourite of mine since I discovered Pinterest – and therefore, fashion – and was like, ooh that bag’s pretty, maybe I’ll get one.

(I then discovered it was the Chanel flap bag and lol’d into my peanut butter and nutella toast when I saw the price tag). 

But a quilted crossbody has always been a classic option that I’ve always adored and gone back to, which is why I wanted/needed you to see my latest addition to the gang in the form of the Call it spring black cywiel bag. Isn’t she such a beauty?! Classic, classy, timeless, chic af…. this bag hasn’t left my sight since receiving it and I can’t see it doing so for a long time to come.
When it comes to makeup, I couldn’t be any less trend led. I paint my face nearly identical every single time I do it and have never really been tempted by the crazy, outlandish trends. But spring is always different for me. Spring usually screams peachy pink cheeks and glowy, fresh skin and a pop of colour on the lips and this is something I can always get on board with. So here’s 1 product I’ve been obsessed with lately and that have helped me for once be mega “on trend” (ish) with my makeup, and a perfume that has got me so ready for Spring;
Apparently “Look at me lips” are in which I kiiiinda find hilariously ironic as my lips are so big anyway that they always scream look at me, but I have to say, I have been enjoying a bright pop of tomatoey, orangey red goodness on my lips of late and my current favourite is The Balm’s Girls Mia Moore. What I love about this, apart from the stunning colour, is that it’s a very moisturising, glossy formula making it slightly more wearable for daytime too. I am usually an out and out matte lip girl but there’s something so fresh and spring like about a glossy red and this is why it is absolutely a firm makeup bag favourite now!
I’m not great at choosing the right scent for the right season. I like what I like and I wear it when I want (move over world, rebel’s coming through… lol). But my current “omg I smell so good, sniff me now!” scent is the Guerlain Mon Guerlain parfum. Described as having a strong, free and sensual femininity, and containing notes of Lavender, sandalwood, jasmine and vanilla… it’s a stunning mixture of femininity, muskiness, warmth and creaminess and god it just makes you feel sassy as hell. A stunning scent that definitely grabs attention but without being in your face.


And that’s basically it for this Spring fashion post. I want to wrap it all up perfectly but in all honesty, all I can think about is how obsessed with the dress I am… isn’t she just a beaut?


I’d love to know if you’ll be adopting any trends for Spring? What’s your go-to look for the warmer months?

As always, thanks so much for reading!

      DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

      It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of generalspelltemple@gmail.com finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.

    I Can't Be More Than Happy on the way Dr Obasi helped me to get back my Boyfriend My name is Elena Scott Dr Obasi cast a spell on him, I felt like ending it all, i almost committed suicide because he left me with nothing, i was emotionally down. But all thanks goes to Dr Obasi, who i met online on one faithful day, as I was searching for tips to get my girl back to me, I came across several testimonies about this particular man. Some people testified that he brought their lover back, some testified that he prayed to stop divorce and get a good paying job and so on. He is amazing, i also come across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Stella Kyes, she testified about how he brought back his lover in less than 3 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped his email After reading all these testimonies, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email (obasispelltemple@gmail.com) and explained my problem to him. In just 6 days, my husband came back to me. We resolved our issues, and we are even happier than ever. Dr Obasi you are a gifted man and thank you for everything you had done in my life.
