Spring Look book: Whimsical Escape vs City Chic

 

As the Spring weather settles in it’s time we hang up our coats and jacket and watch as our days get longer .Unfortunately with exams coming up soon I haven’t been able to enjoy those long hours basking under the sun. However, I find myself studying at home on certain afternoons, and I love watching the afternoon rays filter through my bedroom blinds. I am totally ready for the warmer seasons!

 

Spring is all about injecting that fresh and vibrant colour palette back into the wardrobe. I personally love seeing the flowy dresses, the frilled hems and patterned fabrics make a return. Spring is a call for fresh beginning; let that translate into your fashion. Dress up those summer pieces with a lighter jacket for breezier days. Pull out the dresses and embrace pastel shades and super feminine cuts. What are some of your favourite Spring trends you’ve spotted so far? Let us know down in the comments below!

 

 

Ashley:

This outfit was inspired by an image of picturesque spring I had painted in my mind. Lush fields of green grass, scattered with broken flower petals. I wanted to create a look that could evoke this whimsical scene I had envisioned.

With this in mind I chose this enchanting number from Sass. A gorgeous pastel pink chiffon dress with long bell sleeve and a graceful dual flutter at the skirt hem. It’s the kind of dress you want to twirl around on an empty field in.

The white polka dot print with the delicate tie in wait detail made this dress even more charming and adorable to wear. I paired this with a straw hat and a neutral tan saddle bag. I felt these pieces injected more authenticity to the whole look. For shoes, I opted for nude sandals that were slightly heeled for elevation. It’s the perfect outfit for a romantic escape from the urban city. What better way to celebrate the arrival of Spring than to inhale some crisp countryside air.

If you’re after more minimalistic pieces that look uber chic for the Spring then this is the outfit for you.

Keeping it simple and sophisticated, this outfit is for all the urban girls who want to look sleek and classy but still drawing inspiration the Spring colour palette. It’s an outfit that pieces together items you might already own. Or if you don’t, they’re definitely pieces worth investing it – classic and timeless, they’re pieces that you can pair with almost anything in your current wardrobe. I opted for this baby pink singlet and paired it with these white culottes. I love the muted pink and white combination. The pants are breezy and they sharpen the whole look. I decided to accessorise with these nude strappy heels and finished the look with a nude clutch. It’s such an easy outfit to take from day to night. It looks effortless while still remaining utterly chic.
