Springtime has got me feeling all kinds of happiness. I love the bright blooms on show, the subtly sweet smell in the air, and the promise of the summer that is yet to come! My wardrobe is slowly evolving to mimic the season and everything that I love about it. Every day, I’ve found myself reaching for vibrant hues, floral prints and flowy silhouettes.
Needless to say, when I laid my eyes upon this gorgeous blossom print blouse by Wolf & Whistle, I knew that I had to have it. Blossoms and spring go hand in hand, so it was a no-brainer, really. I love the details of this blouse – a pleated front and buttoned back make for some interesting sartorial elements, without taking away from the stunning print. I must mention that the quality of the fabric is so good! It’s a woven fabric in a loose, flowy structure, which ensures that I stay cool as a cucumber, even when the weather is warm.
I decided to pair this blouse with a classic A-line skirt in a striking shade of cobalt blue, platform heels to match and finally, a beaded statement necklace. I love the colour combination of bright blue and bold orange-red; the contrast is simply stunning.
When it comes to spring fashion, skirts are definitely your best friends – they have an easy feminine vibe and are so versatile when it comes to styling. The look that I have put together is rather sophisticated (hence, the classic low bun), but if you feel like something casual and edgy, you can throw on a loose tank top or crop top instead, and finish of the look with a flirty flower crown. Perfect for a music festival or brunch with your girls!
If you’re heading to work, you can switch up the blouse with a crisp white shirt instead – a classic staple piece that will never go out of style. When the weather is cooler, I love to toughen up my outfit by pairing feminine skirts with a bold leather jacket. So much oomph.
