Spring Brings  Us

As we welcome Spring with open arms, we are ever so ready for the
freshness of Spring colours. For SS20 we saw a lot of cool and refreshing
shades of green on the catwalks, so it is not surprising to see green
feature heavily through the collections arriving. I am particularly loving
the fresh sage green shade and minty tones that have landed instore this
week.

 

This maxi dress from Danish label Rue De Femme is one of my favourites.
I love that you can wear it now with tights and a woolly jumper/cardi, yet
before long we will ditch the heavy layers for maybe a cream blazer like
this one from Italian label Patrizia P . I have added grey suede block heel
boots from Spanish label XTI and a grey suede bag from Danish label Ichi
to bring out the grey tones in the dress.

 

The print also comes in a fab shirt. The material feels fab on and the cut of the shirt is extremely comfortable and a great shape for lots of sizes. Style tucked into a high waisted skirt or for more casual chic, wear with your favourite jeans, which for  me, happen to be the Rebound skinny jean from French Connection. These jeans have such a great stretch and high waist. The denim has a lovely quality that does not get baggy after a few hours of sitting and bending (which drives me crazy!)

 

For me Spring is all about separates and transforming simple pieces into
fresh ensembles. Everyone is in love with these shirts from Dancing
Leopard. A simple silky like shirt in numerous prints and colourways. This
gorgeous minty hue in a ditzy leopard print looks lovely with the grey
colourway in the Rebound skinnies. A fresh look for Spring. And for now,
add a cosy layer with this gorgeous Knit from Sugarhill. This print also
comes in a super versatile shirt dress and midi skirt.

 

A definite MMH is this Janet Byrne piece – she designs the
most amazing knitwear, all made locally, lambswool & amazing quality.
This camel coloured waterfall cardi is such a staple piece which I will wear so much over the season as it looks great layered over everything. I wear here it with a simple white shirt (an absolute Must Have!)

 

 

Well ladies, this is just the start of the season, but these are some staple pieces to get you started. Ditch the dark colours and breathe some freshness into your wardrobe!

Love Mary
