Moving into Spring - Style post

Hey Guys,

It might be Easter this weekend but it's still pretty cold out there,these kind of sunny blue skies that are still really cold out are my favourite. 

It is time to slowly move away form our beloved winter coats and move to jackets (not quite ready to live in our denim jackets yet though)
A jacket like this which I got at the end of last summer in the Debenhams sale is perfect for early spring, its very warm but floral and has plenty of colour for the new season.

Dresses like this have been around on the high street especially places like Urban Outfitters and topshop for a while now and are ideal for transitional weather. While the dark burgundy colour of this one is still quite autumnal I think the corduroy effect keeps it in line with the never ending 70s trend which I plan on keeping in my wardrobe for a long time.

Top - Primark 
Dress - Shein *
Boots - Next 
Necklace - Topshop 
Jacket - H! by Henry Holland at Debenhams 

I'm still wearing mostly black with my outfits but with jackets like this I am slowly moving into spring and am hoping I can make this dress work later in the season with a white shirt or graphic tee underneath.
In nature the changing of the seasons especially at spring with the start of new life is my favourite time and it can be one of the best times for style too we don't need to think quite as practically and ruin our outfits with coats and endless knitwear but its not the dreaded weather which means getting our legs out. I hate summer style full of crop tops and shorts but I love a bit of colour and being more experimental, coming out of the cycle I get stuck in of jumpers and jeans in winter so Spring is the best time for me to be creative yet comfortable with my style.

Hope you are all well and enjoying the start of Spring

Love Charlotte

The Price of Wales check - Style post

Hey Guys,

Spring is taking its time to come around this season, only the other week we had snow in Cornwall.

As I am looking forward to Spring but we all know Winter is my favourite season so I love this time to compromise, keeping jumpers, dark colours and boots but slowly getting warmer no need for coats all the time its great. 

I got both this jumper and trousers in the end of the last Zara sale and have been wearing them both loads. Especially this jumper which is so fluffy and oversized it works well over the top of a body-con skirt too. 

Hat - New Look / Jumper - Zara / Jacket - Primark / Trousers - Zara / Boots - Next / Necklace - Topshop 

I am so glad I finally managed to find the perfect check trousers, last season the check blazer was everywhere especially on instagram and now I think the trousers will have a moment too. 
As I am forever saying I love being able to style a classic tailored piece with graphic tees and over sized band tees. I adore the little touch of the lace trim along the hem. 
I am definitely not a hat person and have barely worn this check baker boy hat, still not sure I can pull it off, need more confidence wearing hats, would have been useful when we had all the snow.

I think its going to be awhile till I move into spring style with lots of colour and put away my boots.

Love Charlotte
