Spring has finally sprung! I am actually able to peg my washing out without fear for it being blown over the fence in a gale, or being fetched inside in a panic from a sudden monsoon downpour. Alright so I can't really say a downpour might still not happen, but we have definitely had sun and today I did not need a coat... at all!
Bees buzzed past me earlier and as we decided to have our very first meal outside, I felt sure this was a good time to show you my recent spring style look for both day and night. A look that with just some tiny changes can actually work for both...
New Look challenged me to put together an outfit which could work from day to night from their New Look occasion hub. I chose a few of their items (skirt, shoes and bag) then used a few of my own to create the looks. I'm a huge fan of a midi skirt so obviously as soon as I knew they would be hitting the shelves I grabbed this blue one Gorgeous blue don't you think? All I've done is simply teamed it with a black and white stripped body and some blush point flat pumps for a super chic vibe.
The clutch is a bit too glam for a day time affair but I somehow felt using the chain strap made it a bit more casual, and simply using it minus the chain as a clutch worked perfectly for an evening.

I have just braided my hair together and pinned it back for a cute/dainty look. I love stripes especially with a block colour midi skirt. This was really comfy to wear and looked like I'd made some kind of an effort, especially as I do spend a vast amount of my time camped out in some kind of gym attire! What do you think of my daytime look?

For night time as you can see not a drastic amount has changed apart from the fact I've grown, and I've gained a jacket. I originally pinned my hair up for this part of the shoot (see first two evening pictures) but decided to pull it out for no particular reason! The jacket is a recent purchase from F&F as I figured a white or light coloured jacket might be a wise move, and those beautiful scrappy stiletto sandals were in the sale and I also bought the necklace from New Look which is actually in the day time look too.
Ta-da! What do you think of my evening ensemble? This is my 'I'm off for a cheeky prosecco with my girls' look. I can imagine it now... bubbles, olives and lots of gossiping!
Happy springtime lovelies hope you're lapping up the sunshine as much as me!
