Dress: New Look
Blazer: H&M
Necklace: House of Fraser*

Boots: Duo Boots*

Is it too early to be thinking about spring? Almost certainly yes, but when this pretty pastel necklace arrived through my letterbox recently, thanks to the people at House of Fraser, it got me in the mood for bright colours and sunshine-ready outfits. One thing I have learned, however, is if a denim dress has been stuffed at the back of your wardrobe since last summer, you should definitely iron it before wearing. Oops! The dress was a new purchase last year in my attempt to not wear black 365 days a year, and the bright pink blazer is an old one from H&M which doesn’t get as much wear as it should.

I used to be more of a long pendant necklace kinda gal, but recently I’ve been loving shorter statement necklaces. Instantly makes you look like you’ve put a bit of effort into getting dressed, even if you’ve just thrown on a dress and a necklace – which is what I do 90% of the time when getting dressed. As well as higher end and well know brands, House of Fraser have lots of hidden gems in their Jewellery department too. You can pick up lovely statement necklaces for under £30; unfortunately this particular necklace is now sold out, but it’s from the brand Mikey at House of Fraser and they have plenty of other options to choose from!

These Sanna boots have quickly become my favourite pair over the last few months since the ladies at Duo Boots gave me a pair to take home after an event at their Edinburgh store. They feel a wee bit dressy but they’re actually super comfy and relatively practical. Plus, they’re in the sale at the moment so you can snap them up for a very reasonable £30!

Have you started digging out your spring wardrobe yet?

    Dress twins! Although, I'm disgusted by those wrinkles. DISGUSTED. I'd also like to casually remind you of your lovely old boots you offered to sell to me for triple the price you bought them for. Ahem xx

    Totally feel the same about statement necklaces and used to be more of a longer necklace kinda girl. I keep meaning to do a post about my favourite statement necklaces – you've just reminded me so thanks for that!x
