Spring is here! - Style post

Hey Guys,

We are well into March and I am finally looking forward to Spring, maybe not quite ready to say good bye to my berry tones and leather jackets. I love transition clothes though, clothes that help us through the awkward weeks in between seasons (it means we still need our leather jackets for awhile). Yesterday the sun made an appearance and injected some colour into my outfit for the first time in a while.
Also some of you may notice (hugs to you) that I've had a hair cut, quite a big chop but I'm not loving it so unlike last time where I was so in love I dedicated a blog post to it (here) I'm trying to move on.





Dress: New Look (Jan sale can't find on-line)
Jacket: H&M Kids (old)
Tights: Unknown 

As you know I'm not one for a floral but I still like feminine prints so I am loving the paisley prints around at the moment. We all know how big denim is going to be this season and I was so glad i kept this jacket from the kids section because it's such a pretty colour and its a bit different to a normal denim. I also think these grey tights are a bit different, no one wears grey tights and I understand why but these just work personally. I love the fit of this dress its officially a smock dress which is why I wish I'd got it in the next size up for the full effect. It's also a very thin fabric which is why I was so surprised to see it in the January sale because its a spring piece to me. 

Let me know what you think of this outfit in the comments and what your top tips are on outfit posts if you are also a style blogger because I'm really trying to improve them and how often I manage to get them up for you. 

Love Charlotte

  1. The colour of the jacket goes well with your dress. It's a lovely basic outfit, which has a lot of potential. You can add some jewellery or a handbag to make the outfit a bit more interesting. A belt would work, too. Hope to speak soon xxx

  2. Your paisley print New Look smock dress looks beautiful. I love Spring and love the look of Spring dresses like that one.

  3. Lovely dress and it matches the jacket so well! Grey tights are great, I find them to be a lot more versatile than black ones..! And I think your shorter hair looks pretty but if you're not enjoying it at least it will grow :) xx

  4. Very cute outfit. I love the dress, I've just bought a dress from the new look sale myself :) Grey tights, I love grey tights, people should wear them more.
