The weather is on the turn and I am dreaming of warmer climes when I can go coatless. As such I have been perusing the magazines for things to wear come spring time which, fingers crossed, is just around the corner. Time to get out the brighter colours and short shorts (maybe). Here's my top ten for February:
1. Embroidered Bomber, Zara, £119 I will still be needing a jacket this spring. Let's face it, I am in London, the ground is going to take a few months to warm through. I am loving the Japanese inspired prints around at the moment and this bomber from Zara with its ornate bird is especially beautiful. Perfect for spring days.
2. Hot Pink Heels,Christian Louboutin, £465 Not usually a fan of strappy shoes but that pink? With a red sole? Don't mind if I do.
3. Mint Green Clutch, Marie Turnor, £143 I love the colour of this bag. I like the paper-bag shape of this clutch too, simple but effective! It looks as though it could hold all my bits and bobs for some spring shopping.
4. Leaf Necklace, Alex Monroe for Evans, £20 Twenty squid for an Alex Monroe necklace? Yes please! I have long been admiring Alex Monroe's collections and to hear that he has designed some lovelies for Evans is very exciting.
5. Short Shorts, Denim &Supply Ralph Lauren, £130 These shorts may be a bit short for spring. It might be better to store them away for summer as I'm not sure how great they would look with tights. Not sure if you can tell from this pic but they are made from a gorgeous Broderie Anglaise style fabric.
6. Beetlejuice Bag, Oasis, £30 Monochrome stripes are everywhere at the mo thanks to the likes of Marc Jacobs and Sportmax. I'm not sure that I can rock the trousers. I do have a shirt that I picked up in Primark last year which I may bring out but I think it will be safer to inject the trend with some cute accessories like this box clutch.
7. Cotton Top, Carven, £160 Lime green is not a colour I wear very often but the ladylike shape of this Carven top is making me reconsider.
8. Nude Nails, Butter London & Revlon, £7.99 - £12 Nude nails are all the rage. Butter London and Revlon are introducing all-nude ranges with colours to suit every skin tone. LOVE!
9. Lipstick in 600, Armani, £25 I have been looking for a purple lippie like this for a while now. I have yet to find a cheaper alternative so may have to go for one like this Armani shade. I have seen one in Mac that I may make a beeline for too. With all of the monochrome and muted pastel shades you need a bright lipstick. Standard.
10. Rings, From £50 each, Davina Combe Thin rings make your hands look really elegant. I am a gold/rose-gold kind of gal so would probably mix and match a selection of these.
