So although I’ve been looking towards to spring with my recent posts of florals with white checks, a gingham summer dress and a SS15 nautical style outfit, it doesn’t mean we’re quite into balmy temperatures just yet in the UK.
It’s that time of year when you need to do the transitional season dressing thing, where you layer up in the morning and then slowly take off the layers as the sun warms up the day.
Which was what I thought was going to happen last weekend, hence a lot of camel and black layers (my long line blazer, scarf, patterned tights under jeans again, my Fair Isle knit). Except that the sun didn’t really come out that much, and the day didn’t warm up that much. Weather reports say we’re going to get some much more spring-like milder temperatures at the weekend, so here’s hoping.
Oh! and not forgetting my new slip on sneakers: Yes I know I’m very late to the party with these… I don’t know why I didn’t get round to buying any last year. I went for the black mock-croc slip ons from Asos and they’re so comfy and so perfect with boyfriend jeans. Better late than never 😉
Have you gone for the slip on sneaker-style shoe like these? Are there any other trends that have been around for a while that you’re thinking of getting this year (leather trousers, dungarees, patchwork jeans, white Birkenstocks)? Do share in the comments!
