Sunny Sunday stroll

We were off to a rocky start this year in the UK with some horrible storms and rain that just wouldn't stop falling. But on a sunny Sunday with gorgeous Spring like weather everything comes alive; the daffodils are almost up and ready to spread some yellow joy, the city is filled with people going for a leisurely stroll, people are sitting outside in cafés and bistros and it's easy to forget that it is actually still only January - tell that to the shorts wearing guy I saw in town...
Blazer & Jumper: H&M // Straight Leg Jeans & Boots: Next // Scarf & Purse: Mulberry // Sunglasses: Gucci // Watch: Guess // Ring: New Look // Nails: Maybelline Color Show Nudes - In Your Flesh  & Maybelline Street Artist Top Coat - White Splatter

So we're literally shaking off our winter clothes, and at the moment it's enough to wear just a light jacket or even a warm jumper, and this navy collar less blazer from H&M is great for transitioning into Spring. I love the gentle nod towards military style with the single row of bronze buttons and even though it's casual it's stylish enough that you can wear it for work as well. Under the jacket I'm wearing a long sleeved cream colored angora mix jumper from H&M which is so soft and lovely. Since I'm wearing my jeans tucked into the boots, I'm wearing a pair with straight leg from Next and the boots (also from Next) are so practical and comfy, even I put my high heels aside every now and then. Sitting out in the sun can get a bit chilly in January so in addition to a hot chocolate to keep me warm, I've also got my Mulberry scarf - on one side it's wheat colored with the logo in beige and on the other side it's the other way around. Since I love chunky accessories I'm rarely seen without some form of statement piece and here I'm wearing a big bronze colored cocktail ring with a rusty red stone from New Look, a chunky gold boyfriend style watch from Guess and my Gucci sunglasses. I'm sure there are some more cold and miserable days in store for us, but Spring is in the air and I for one can't wait to slip into some delicious light pastel colors to celebrate the return of the sun. Have a wonderful day everyone! Xx

  38. Love the combination of beige + blue and the boots with the jeans! Ugh, I can't believe we are talking about Spring already, I feel like we're just in the heart of winter! (But of course, the man in shorts is probably too excited for spring already)
