IS IT SPRING YET? CREATING A TRANSITIONAL WARDROBE
The problem with such long seasons as my style can feel a little monotonous, clearly I’m all for a capsule collection and a streamlined edit (I’m a new woman don’t you know), but wearing the same winter looks day in day out can get a little boring … and that’s where the change of season comes into play. I love the transition from one season to the next, the weather, the high streets new season edits, and just the ability to start mixing up your outfits a little. Teaming winter knitwear with summer skirts, or your staple winter jeans with summery sandals and billowy blouses. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter, summer, spring and autumn … but what I love the most is the continued shift between them and how my style ebbs and weaves with the season changes.
Probably what I love the most though, is the excuse to buy new items, to embrace the high streets new collections and add a little something new to my wardrobe. I can’t say Spring is really on it’s way in the UK, but the Spring collections have definitely hit the high street and I have already jumped on board.
I’ve tried to be selective and keep in mind my capsule wardrobe ambitions, and so three new (all suede) items are my first step into my Spring style. Introducing the navy suede skirt from Whisles, the Chloe Hayley who you’ve already met and the classic tan suede Mule from Zara.
The perfect transitional items, easily wearable for the blustery winter days, but equally the spring sunshine as it starts to sneak in. Investment pieces I admit, but that’s what my new approach to shopping is all about. Quality over Quantity (my ongoing debate).
What do you think of my new buys? Are you longing for Spring yet too?
