Spring is a season for fresh starts, brighter & longer days, weddings, and of course an exciting new fashion season. In my opinion Spring 19 has been a seriously strong season thus far. Think Colour Colour COLOUR! The shop floor is brimmed with sunny yellow, cobalt and cornflower blue, lilac and gorgeous reds.
I've narrowed down my top 10 picks of the season so far. These are all items you can wear daily. I've already picked up a couple of these pieces for myself and I can't recommend them enough. I've surpased the 30 wear rule and it's only the beginning of March! Check them out below :)
1. Ilse Jacobsen Waterproof Raincoat
I have one of these raincoats which I purchased over a year ago, since we started stocking this brand. I have to say that I think it's one of the best items in my wardrobe that I own. It's genuinally waterproof, machine washable, has a great flattering fit and is the easiest item to throw on over any outfit and you instantly look put together. Practical and stylish is my idea of perfect!
This new Frosting Lilac colour is quickly becoming the best selling colour of the season. It's so lovely and bright.
2. Philip Hog Elastic Zebra Trainers
If you follow me on Instagram anna_fashionandlifestyle you will know by now how much I've been wearing these scandinavian trainers. Similarly to Ilse Jacobsen I picked up a pair from this brand during our first season's stock and they are still going strong. A good pair of trainers will work with so many outfits and I particularly like this elastic style. They are just that little bit different and they feel like you're wearing slippers!
3. Mos Mosh Gito Cargo Pants
Looking for an alternative pant to wear to jeans or leggings then these Mos Mosh cargo pants are made for you. They are extrememly comfortable and versatile. I've styled them with chunky knits and trainers, to heels and a silky cami and will be switching it up with t-shirts and sandals come Summer. A Spring staple if you ask me.
4. Charli Cotton Jumper
Picking between these two styles is a toughie! The sunny yellow style features a v neck and asymmetric hem whilst the ivory is cut with a round neck and relaxed fit. Either of these is perfect to style with jeans, over dresses, with floaty midi skirts or with shorts come Summer.
5. Mercules Greyhound Leather Bag
This gorgeous red leather bag will add a pop of colour to any outfit. Accessorise always!
6. Mos Mosh Bradford Jeans
A flattering high rise slim leg jean should be a staple in every woman's wardrobe. The Bradford by Mos Mosh are cut in a lovely tapered fit and crafted in a great denim which is comfortable for day long wear. I also love this classic blue wash.
7. Mos Mosh Larina White Shirt
This subtle update to a classic stretch cotton white shirt is bang on trend for Spring. Style it with the Bradford jeans and Greyhound red bag for a chic and easy everyday look.
8. Frnch Andreze Dress
The perfect pinstripe blue and white dress to style with trainers now and sandals come Summer.
9. Heart T-shirt
Layer this lovely cotton t-shirt under a blazer with jeans and trainers or with a fab midi skirt, leather jacket and boots. A great basic with a little extra special detail.
10. Blake Dali Blazer
How stunning is this printed tailored blazer from Mos Mosh? This cornflower blue colour is so beautiful and fresh. Style this jacket with a simple white t-shirt or shirt, jeans and trainers for a great Spring look. Want to take this look to evening, style it with the coordinating Ivana Dali Pant for the ultimate chic Spring suit.
I hope you enjoyed my top 10 Spring picks!
