Spring is definitely in the air in London. As good an excuse as any to go shopping I thought!
I do love floral patterns against a black background, and floaty tea dresses are perfect when the weather warms up and the wind subsides. I found this dress in Urban Outfitters, and cinched it in with a plaited leather belt (shoes from Hobbs, sunglasses Ralph Lauren). It looks quite different depending on how you style it; boho-chic with oversized shades and loose curls, or dressed up with a ballerina bun and smart black jacket. Which do you prefer?
The bronze-antler necklace was another spring purchase, this time from Spitalfields market (definitely my favourite market). It’s available online here, though they’re not advertising the bronze chain that came with mine – I’m sure you can request this though if you prefer it to the leather or gunmetal chain available.
I’ve been stealthily filling our flat with spring bulbs as well, as a man appears regularly near our house with a big van full of them. This sounds a bit sinister… tempting young women in with pretty flowers… but he’s very nice!
What purchases does spring inspire you to make?
