A Spring Wardrobe Update


It's been a while since I last gave my wardrobe an update of any real significance. I've bought the odd thing here or there, but after clearing out and getting rid of a large portion of what I owned, I'm very careful not to buy unnecessary things. Instead, when I now buy clothes, I look for items that I can wear at least three different ways so I know they won't be left hanging there, collecting dust and taking up space. I also take time to think about purchases, instead of impulse buying and after one wear regretting the over sized, far too short, odd black top that I'll never ever wear again. The mind when in shopping mode is a dangerous thing! 

Seeing as we have a trip coming up, and seeing as I was seriously lacking in transitional spring clothing (even though, it's basically still winter out there right now) we did a little shopping recently and I'm very pleased with my finds. To be honest, when I look at my pile of items they don't exactly scream spring, but then I've never really been one for pale pinks and soft pastel shade in clothing, not really. My spring wear always leans more towards different shades of blue.


I like to pick up new basics every so often so they don't start to look too worn in, so I ordered two new Forever T-shirts from Asos in a recent order, one white and one grey. I'll always be a jeans and t-shirt kind of girls so I love it when I find ones I like, and these I love! In the same order I also found a blue check shirt, which was actually from New Look. The quality is lovely and the material is so soft, I've been wearing it layered over one of the forever tee's and when it hasn't been bitterly cold, with my leather jacket too. I realised a few weeks back that I own no striped tops...I of course had to fix this so found a lovely one in H&M. Not only is it a great fit and a good length on me, it's from their conscious clothing line. A few weeks ago now I got the first pair of proper trainers that I'd had in...I've really no idea how long. Since then I've become more and more fond of the trainer trend so picked up another pair, this time the Adidas Superstars. They look great with most of what I've been wearing and are so comfortable I think I'll soon struggle to want to wear anything else. Lastly I've added two new bit's of denim, one light one dark. The light skinny jeans were actually a gift from my mum and they are such a perfect fit, and from a shop I'd never have even thought to look at online - Very. The others are jeggings from River Island, but they feel much thicker than some I've had before so could pass for jeans.

My new wardrobe has been accompanied by my favourite spring scent from Jo Malone, Peony and Blush Suede, and I've added a little more glow to my make up. I'm now on the hunt for a new highlighter and blush to give my make up bag a little update too, any suggestions?

Have you added any new spring updates to your wardrobe?
