Feeling boho babyliscious!

Grey is the perfect trans-seasonal colour.  here livened up with a pop of red.

As the weather warms up my thoughts always turn towards lighter colours, and I love boho styles in the summer months.  The perfect look for me is a pretty boho cotton blouse to wear with jeans and later on with light weight utility pants and shorts when the weather starts to swelter.  Here are some options that I spotted today, and check out my Shop the Look page to navigate directly through to some on-line options.  I always try to pick items from a variety of different price points so you can mix it up!

Styled with your favourite blue jeans for informal wear, or with a denim skirt for work you can’t go wrong with this look.  Below are a few styles that are new and lust worthy items for the new season.

Spring is in the Air

It’s that time of year when the shops are full of new stuff, ditto fashion mags, and style websites but the weather is not necessarily obliging!

I find the start of a season the ideal time to have a snoop around the shops and on-line to see what’s new, and to decide what I love.  I then check the back of my closet to see what I already have!  One of the benefits of developing your own style is that your taste remains pretty constant.  (Conversely one of the downsides can be wasting hard earned cash on items that are so similar to your existing wardrobe that no-one else but you can tell the difference!)  Follow this advice to maximise on your existing items and minimise mistakes 😉

Some summer footwear that caught my eye.  The clog style is perfect for warmer days before a pedicure becomes mandatory 😉

A quick rummage through my summer wardrobe items revealed a few ‘looks’ from previous seasons which are eminently suitable for recycling with a few new additions as the weather warms up.

Grey and stripes are perfect trans-seasonal pieces

You will probably gather from these pictures that my style is really very simple.  My standby pieces are jeans and long sleeve tees styled with scarves, belts, jewelry, bags and footwear…boots at the moment!   I’m a real accessories gal as these are the items that make for a really versatile wardrobe when styled with basics.

In my next post I’ll be posting more style tips and ideas to freshen up your look for Spring.  Meanwhile click on the Styling Ideas link for daily updates from my sets created on Polyvore and follow me on Instagram for OOTD.
