Springtime outfits for warmer (and cooler) days….


In yesterday’s post I was talking about how difficult it can be to decide what to wear when there’s such a wide range in temperature during the day. The thing is, when it gets to this time of the year, we’re all worn out with dark, heavy, winter clothes so it’s about finding things that are a little bit more spring like but which still keep the chill at bay.

One of the first things to think about is wearing slightly lighter coloured jeans and, as soon as the temperature permits, swapping heavy boots for shoes which can be worn without tights.  One tip is to use a little bit of spray tan on your feet and ankles, just to take the blueness away. I like the Rimmel spray  in golden brown. What I don’t like is the smell, which can give me a migraine, so I spray it on before I shower and as it’s water resistant it’s still there, minus the smell, when I’ve finished. It works for me!

As to clothing, it’s about working with fabrics and layers to get a lighter, brighter, springtime look which is still warm.  I am wearing a long sleeved top from the GAP, together with this eyelet-trim sweatshirt top, also from GAP (£24.95) which whilst not mega-weight, is a lot thicker than a regular top or T-shirt. Predictably I liked the sweat style, the fact that it was navy, plus the lacy trim. The jeans are from New Look and the shoes, M&S.

When it’s warm enough I will abandon the coral top and maybe the vest underneath too – such a rebel!

    Thanks for this – useful! I love this time of year for clothes – but it cam be tricky to get the balance right between aesthetics and temperature! Happy Easter.

      Hi Carol – Happy Easter to you too! Yes this time of year is so nice in lots of ways but tricky in others. Hopefully it will be consistently warm soon(ish)!

    I decided to show my ankles, yesterday, and I found an extremely old tube of Fake Bake instant tan. I just slapped in on my feet, arms and neck and it made such a difference. I think we are all getting much more proficient at layering. Needs must. H xx

      Hi! You're brave going for the neck and arms too. One day soon I will go to the end of the road, see Ange the beautician, and come home a completely different colour. It's cheaper than two weeks in the sun. You're right – layering is an art form!
