Once Christmas is over, the winter can be so dragging and it takes ages for it to be spring and colourful again. I find this one of the most difficult times of the year to dress for. All the stores have released their spring/summer collections when even wearing two jumpers cannot beat this cold sometimes. I don't know about you but I have had enough of my winter coat and scarf now, I say it is time for something more towards spring.
I have put together an outfit that I think is perfect for this ''in-between seasons'' time.
A white ruffled sleeved top from boohoo, along with a black leather slip dress from boohoo as well. Even though I don't always have the best experience with clothes from boohoo.com, it still has not stopped me from ordering again. Especially since they have a great collection and my basket is always filled up straight away! I think it is just accepting the fact that you get what you pay for. Yes, the quality is not perfect but what can you say from a top that might have cost you only £8. This is the case for most high-street fashion stores and boohoo offers such a variety of clothing that we just need to get over ourselves.
I personally love the slip dress over tops trend but even more when the dress has faux leather material! I ordered the dress a size larger than I normally have because I did not want it to be very short, this is the perfect length for me. The sides, just under the straps needed to be taken in a little bit to make it fit better as it was a bigger size. The lace detailing at the top is my favourite part, I think it makes the look instantly very feminine as it gives that lingerie effect to it.
I am still looking for a bright pink top to wear underneath the dress and make it more colourful but until then I cannot go wrong with a white one. I know the ruffle sleeves are everywhere at the moment but I had to go along with this trend, it's so cute and easy to wear!
The bag I combined with this outfit today is from KoKo Couture, it is a large clutch bag and it comes with a silver strap as well to carry it around more easily. It is the perfect size for when you don't want to overpack! I love this tan colour, I think it goes well with so many outfits and will never go out of style. However, it comes in a variety of colours and the grey one looks gorgeous too!
The shoes and necklace are both from New Look and tights are Primark as always.
Good luck getting through these last bitter winter months, I have to admit that I am still loving the hot chocolates and fuzzy socks but going to work when it is snowing, not so fun anymore. So get ready for more spring outfits soon!
Love, Marlinde x
