It’s March. It’s just one week until April. It’s currently dry with blue skies and it’s looking very promising right now. I actually cannot wait to get out of this country and into some warmer weather. I’ve been really prepared in terms of wardrobe for the warmer weather. I have been buying all the cute dresses, and pretty ballet flats yet I’ve still not had chance to bring them out of hibernation. Hopefully, April will be kind to us and winter wardrobe can finally be packed away. To add to my ever growing wardrobe, I have hit the Fashion World website, the home of a wide selection of clothes that suit my figure and size to pick some new items.
One of the brands stocked at Fashion World is Simply Be, and I have got a lot of love for them. With being tall and top heavy, I find that their clothes really fit well, as well as being of a great quality. The Capsule collection in particular has given me some great finds over the years. You might remember my sheer snake print shirt dress which I have literally worn to death. When it comes to spring fashion, I’m still very much a covered up person. My feet will be encased in boots, and the heavy coats are now lightweight jackets. I think this is why I have so many day dresses that can be worn throughout the year.
An introduction to the spring weather comes in the form this gorgeous floral shirred dress. Hitting two of the AW18 fashion trends with the floral and fuchsia pink accents, the dress will also be perfect for later on in the year teamed with opaque tights. I absolutely love the fit of swing dresses on me. I am still very much in the ‘lets cover up the areas I don’t like’ and I think that’s why you never see me baring cleavage. A swing dress will sit nicely from my chest, and although it doesn’t accentuate my figure, I love how it falls and sits high on my leg. I have been wearing most outfits with boots at the moment as I am so not ready for getting my feet out just yet. These tan zipped booties are a perfect addition, and with the cut of the boot, they will look great with numerous outfits. Plus, they are so comfortable from first wear that I haven’t wanted to take them off.
A classic shirt dress is a staple in my wardrobe. From denim, to lightweight cotton, to an oversized boyfriend shirt, I absolutely adore this style. Not only can they be worn in a casual style, but can be dressed for a evening, or teamed with over the knee boots and a fur gilet for winter style. To me, they are one of the easiest outfits to style whatever time of year or occasion.
When I spotted this shirt dress on Fashion World, I couldn’t resist. It’s so me and so perfect for this time of year. Long sleeved, tie waisted and sporting one of the upcoming floral trends, it’s another versatile piece for my wardrobe. To change the look, I would swap the tie waist belt for a different belt, and roll the sleeves up for a much more casual look. I would also wear this open with a pair of jeans and a vest top for a different option.
Coming into spring, now that the weather is picking up, it’s all about bare legs and boots but with the potential to start getting my feet out for the summer. I’ve started making sure that my legs and feet are being looked after, ready for when the day comes for me to slip my feet into these rose gold low heeled sandals. I really do wish that I could wear a higher heel, but for now, these are perfect.
One of the fashion items that I have told myself that I need to wear more of is costume jewellery. I’m very minimal with my jewellery and I think due to this, I really don’t usually bother. I wear my Chlo Bo bracelet daily and my Anoushka necklace, with my 10 earrings and that’s usually the extent of it. I’ve treated myself to a new rose gold necklace with drop and circle design (similar here) and I think it’s just the right amount of extra. I’m ready to start expanding my jewellery collection to feature some more on trend pieces.
I’m sending out all of the positive vibes for the weather to pick up so all of my spring wardrobe can be utilised to it’s full potential.
