Fashion Favorites Vol.3 | Winter to Spring

This post is long overdue. Without a doubt, my favourite fashion period is the seasonal transition from winter to spring.  I can continue to wear my beautiful jumpers whilst simultaneously incorporating floral and pastels into my day-to-day outfits.  Here are a few of my current go-to garments that you can still snatch up on the high street!

NB: I am very blessed to get sent items to review/wear and I would only mention the products I truly use and like, returning those which aren't my normal style.

Topshop IDOL Cream Floral Print Layered Mini Skirt

£26.00 from £29.00

This print resembled Paul & Joe's skirts, so much so, that it's hard not to love.  When paired with the cami pictured underneath, it is easy to fake the appearance of a mini dress.  Nonetheless, the skirt can be paired with a cream, purple, or even green jumper for the cooler spring days; making it the perfect year-round piece.

Topshop IDOL Ivory Floral Print Ruffle Cami Top

£15.00 from £22.00
Similar to the skirt, this is a stunning floral pattern.  It's art. It's simplicity and the subtle v-neck line makes it a spring staple.  It can be paired with a cardigan and high-waisted white jeans or trousers to transition from the colder winter days.  The top is far longer than the picture depicts so can be styled in accordance to your comfort. 

Topshop Dennis Pink Mules

£20.00 from £22.00

Mules have received the reputation of being too 'office' or 'vintage'.  In my opinion,  mules are elegant and classy for everyday.  They're comfortable and fail-proof for any outfit.  Surprisingly, I have very few pink shoes in spite of my deep love for the colour.  These are perfect for those floral spring dresses but can also dress up jeans due to the miniature heel.    

Zara Printed Top


This is the top that has dreams woven into its fabric.  It's a breathtaking print with hues of pink, blush, and red.  Although cropped, similar to the Topshop shirt, it does come down reasonably below the belly button. When paired with high-waisted pieces, the mid-drift is not visible.  Thus, if you have a more modest wardrobe, this can still be a potential addition.  It may look uncomfortable but the inner lining is soft to the touch.

Zara Puffy Bermuda Shorts


Nothing says spring quite like a crisp white garment.  These shorts have asymmetrical pleats and is double lined to give the appearance of a skater skirt instead of shorts; allowing us to prevent any potential flashing when out and about.  The fabric is satin with only a subtle reflective finish. 

Adidas Essential 3-Stripes Women Leggings

£9.99 from £24.99

Anyone who knows me knows, I hardly purchase workout gear.  Nonetheless, M and M Direct is the best online outlet for designer brands at high-street prices.  Never in my right mind would I spend £25 on workout leggings because I rarely move a muscle.  On the contrary, I can imagine why someone would for these leggings as they are exceptionally figure flattering and the high waist band just adds to that effect.  Despite being thin, they are not transparent by any means so it is perfect for anywhere and any work out.

Pindydoll Woman's Co-Ord Set


Are we seeing a theme with crop tops?  This cute two piece co-ordinate transitions from the gym or dance studio to loungewear (my personal preference).  The only downside is that the lining on the inside can be quite itchy but after a few washes this feeling subsides.  At £10 for two pieces of clothing, what can go wrong? 

Henleys Womans Trainers in Black and Bright Pink


£7 for a pair of trainers is daylight robbery.  I usually wear them to dance practice  (hiphop especially) where the floor might not be forgiving on the feet.  They are extremely lightweight and act as great shock absorbers; supporting the ankle and fascia of the feet. Albeit this isn't my first choice print, it's a very small price to pay (literally) for the quality. 

H and M Jacket with Gathered Sleeves


Blazers are a classic and chic raiment.  It was only in the last year did I begin to wear blazers more often.  Frankly, I was convinced they're too uniform or corporate for everyday but how wrong I was.  Blazers are the feature piece to any outfit: jeans with trainers or tailored trousers and moccasins, these jackets won't fail you.  In defiance of being a traditional spring piece, anyone looking to freshen up their wardrobe should look into investing in blazers.  My closet has a tendency to look very young and youthful but so a jacket certainly matures any outfit.

H and M linen-blend top


If you know me, then it's a fact that my favourite textures are boucle, tweed, and linen.  Linen is the epitome of 'Sunday Market' vibes.  This top is a very simple silhouette with balloon sleeves, elasticated at the hem.  The ruched neckline adds a further touch of femininity.  This can be paired with jeans, skirts, or the ankle-length twill trousers I mention below.  The cream colour is brilliant monochrome; allowing it to be paired with other shades such as brown, stones, beige, or pastels.  

H and M Ankle-length Twill Trousers in Light Beige


There are very few moments where I feel cool, and wearing ankle-length trousers is one of them.  As someone that generally shies away from tom-boy-esque clothes, something about capris length pants is extremely stylish.  These trousers can be rolled up to your mid-calf, which is my personal choice.  When worn at the ankle, they are far more baggy. Nonetheless, they assimilate wonderfully with my existing girly style.

H and M UK Crinkled Jersey Dress in Powder Pink


This beautiful milkmaid jersey dress in powder pink couldn't be more me.  The material is light, feminine, and airy, making it perfect for those summer strolls. Synched at the waist, this figure flattering dress is a spring essential.  

& Other Stories Oversized Wool Blend Workwear Shirt


If you're unfamiliar with the brand & Other Stories, they are owned by H and M and have been known to be a timeless clothing brand with high quality pieces (and high prices to match).  Monochrome is a branch of my aesthetic. Although this is is described as a shirt, it is in fact a lightweight coat with the shape and structure of a formal dress shirt.  Given the wool, it is ideal for baring those cold winter months but is suitable enough for breezy spring days.   This is an investment piece without a doubt, but its versatility means it can be worn all year round.
