April so far

Top, Primark. Shorts, River Island. Leather bag, Zara. Brogues, River Island (as seen here, here and here). Jewellery, presents from my mum.

April is my favourite month of the year. Not too sure why – probably because the days get longer, spring is in the air, flowers are blossoming everywhere and summer is around the corner. All of a sudden, feeling happy seems so much easier.

Spotted this cute little top in Primark the other day and couldn’t resist. I think it might be one of those items that disappear really quickly, there was only one left in my size. I love the fabric and the bow galore, as well as its creamy colour.

I think these neutral shorts are exactly what I needed. I’m still getting used to their shape – they’re very high-waisted and I feel I need to be careful with what I match them with, yet at the same time they’re proving to be quite versatile. It’s like they adapt perfectly to so many of my tops, whatever the style. Oh, how I love multi-tasking garments!

I found it very strange how this bag had a magnet effect on me – I couldn’t help but grabbing it the minute I saw it. It’s strange because yellow – or any of its mustard equivalents – is not something that you will see much of in my wardrobe. But I think that’s what makes this bag so charming. And you’d be surprised how much can actually fit in it.

Yes, it was a lovely day alright but I did end up feeling the breeze, so a cardigan had to come on (and eventually I also tucked in my top, which I think I prefer). It’s another cardigan from my workplace, NW3, and part of my uniform attire. I’m still unsure about the overall look of the cardigan with the other pieces, but for some reason I love how it looks with the bag.

Outfit conclusion? I felt a bit strange leaving my house like this, but after looking at these pics I didn’t actually find it that bad. Still, not sure I would wear it again – I would ditch the black tights, choose a different cardigan and maybe wear some flats instead of these brogues (or go for a socks and shoes look). And a nice tan would help. But hey, where’s the fun in fashion if you don’t try different things, right? Hope everyone has had a lovely start to April, more spring-like posts to follow soon.
