Spring Wardrobe Edit

With spring upon us it can be that awkward time of the year where you may find your wardrobe lacking in a couple of key pieces, to help transition your clothes from winter to spring. So today I thought I might share with you my take on the key pieces that help me transition my wardrobe from day to night, this season. 

Fat Face has recently launched their "Wardrobe Edit" campaign which encourages us to update our look for the season, by simply investing in just a couple of key items that can be worn for both day and night. 

With this in mind I decided to invest in a pair of Fat Face's "Modern Chino Crops" in "Violet" (my pastel obsession continues...) and their "Ryde Broderie Shirt" as my key pieces in creating this 'transitional' look. Both pieces are extremely versatile for both spring and summer, and due to their lightweight fabric are perfect for keeping you cool when the weather starts to heat up. 

For the 'day to night transition' I decided to keep the basis of the outfit the same and update the look with a few key accessories and outerwear pieces. For the day look I decided to pair the shirt and chinos with my beloved metallic mac, a statement piece that it also perfect for protecting me from those April Showers. Additionally as the mac is making a comeback this season it gives the outfit an updated 'on-trend' look-with added practicality.

For the 'night' look I decided to pair the shirt and chinos with a contrasting black duster jacket, a staple in my wardrobe for instantly added a dash of drama to a simple look. I additionally paired the outfit with my holographic unicorn clutch and pom pom earrings, for added impact. 

So there you have it a simple way to transition a couple of key pieces from Fat Face, with just a few accessories, that can easily transform your outfit from day to night in a matter of seconds.

Paisley Print

If there is one thing that I have had my eye on owning since the 70s trend first graced the high street and fashion world, is a pair of flared trousers. There is something so flattering about their high waisted flared aesthetic, as well as their killer prints that my inner "Woodstock-hippy" fell for. 

When it comes to trousers I can be fussy about the style, length, colour and fit. So when I came across these daisy printed ones in the asos sale, I simply couldn't resist picking up a pair. They are seriously comfy, almost (if I dare say) 'pyjama level' comfy, but unlike pyjamas make you look like you've made 100% more effort than you actually have. With the 70s in mind for this outfit I decided to opt for this pattern clashing top, from ARK, which is a  gorgeous paisley print and has this amazing pleated back. Plus it is pink, which makes it even more appealing for one pink obsessed blogger.

If there is one thing that regular readers would have realised by now is my obsession with pastel coloured items. There is something about those array of shades that has virtually taken over my wardrobe, hair colour and life choices-if it is not pastel coloured I'm not interested. 

So when the lovely people over at Palladium saw this "obsession" and wondered if I would be interested in featuring a pair of their (awesome) boots in a post, I jumped at the chance.
If I could name something pastel coloured I don't own,  it would have to be a pair of shoes/boots. That being said I felt that void had to be filled with a pair of their "Pampa Hi M"  in the shade "Lavender". A purple toned pink that haven't left my feet since gracing them, mainly because they are extremely comfortable to wear on a daily basis.

If you haven't already then I would definitely recommend checking out the brand (link here!) and what other ice-cream inspired boot shades they have to offer-"Blueberry" is another which has caught my eye.
