Hey guys, I hope you had a great weekend. The Spring sunshine finally returned last week after the howling winds and torrential rain. I find Spring really tricky to dress for, I want to be all vibrant and pop a pretty blouse on but then I’m freezing my bits off as it is still so chilly.
Anyway, I thought I would share what I’ve been wearing just lately. There is nothing exciting or remotely fancy in any of my outfits as I like comfort. I really wish I was one of these Instagram fashion mums who wear maxi dresses with heels but it just does not fit within my lifestyle. Do they really run errands and do the school drop off in stilettos/leather jackets/bodycon dresses etc??
Lets start with what I wear first thing in the morning. I love lounging around sipping coffee before the school rush. This is my favourite combo – PJ bottoms (Matalan) and a fluffy dressing gown (Peacocks).
This is the perfect example of a Spring day here in the UK, glorious sunshine but a chill to the air. I enjoyed a lovely cuppa in the garden wearing my favourite jeans (Molly Jeans, River Island) and a cosy sweatshirt from Primark – perfect.
I don’t just drink tea all day, promise! Here is a really cosy outfit that I can sling on after I’ve been to the gym. I love this knitted hoodie from Next and of course my cute Piggy Pink Gellux nails especially for the Easter weekend.
It was a scorching hot weekend over Easter so I pulled out a few summer tops. I bought this particular top last summer from New Look, I always get so many lovely compliments when wearing it, I love the colour.
Two new purchases here. This beautiful white embroidery blouse and circle straw bag both from New Look. I love this outfit so much. There is something so classic about a crisp white blouse for Spring/Summer.
One of my go-to outfits for Spring is a t-shirt (Next) and skinny jeans. This is perfect for hanging out with the kiddies, running errands and the school run. Comfort always wins.
This is very much my traditional “Mum” outfit, a classic Breton (Boden) and jeans.
Brightening up the housework with a very colourful Joules hoodie.
An off the shoulder jumper is a style I really like, I think it looks casual but kind of cute with a pair of cut off jean shorts or skinny jeans. I have a few more off the shoulder jumpers all from Shein UK.
Another day another sweatshirt. I just cannot help myself I’m drawn to slogan sweatshirts, this one is from Next.
Primark have such a great selection of sweaters, this one was only £2 and is the softest material. I love the bright colour for Spring especially when it is a grey grim day out there.
I love rummaging through my wardrobe finding little treasures I had forgotten about. How utterly adorable is this knitted bow jumper from Next?
More of an Autumn outfit than Spring but still just as lovely. I have a thing for this colour cardigan (Matalan), it looks so good with the stripes (Boden) and denim dress (Topshop).
This colour combination has to be my ultimate. I think it is so classy and works well whatever season we are in, I cannot wait to wear this scarf this Autumn with a denim dress, tights and over the knee boots!
I don’t have a style but I do have a bit of a theme with my outfits. A nice jumper and jeans is probably my most worn outfit, I feel good in this.
If you knocked on my door after 3.30pm this is how you will find me dressed. PJ bottoms (Matalan), slippers (Joules) and whatever top I’ve had on that day. Surely I am not the only person who changes into comfy clothes if I know I’m not going out again?
This was my outfit yesterday, a staple grey off the shoulder jumper, jeans and a scraped back bun. Not glamorous in the slightest.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed reading this post and if you got to the end then thank you so much for sticking around. I love browsing outfit inspiration and have lots of fab pins on Pinterest if you fancy popping over and having a looksee.
Have a smashing week everyone!
