I thought today I'd show off one of my Spring looks, especially now the daffs are in bloom and it's nearly time for the clocks to "spring forwards". We've even had a bit of sunshine recently... I have to be honest and say that really, it's my usual look, but with a nod to the nautical. I'm talking bright skinny jeans, bright tshirts and cardies and a slightly nautical blazer/jacket. Bright skinnys are really in at the moment.. just so happens I have a wardrobe full of them anyway (thank you Primark, at £8 a pop it'd be rude not to!). I've teamed my jeans with some gorgeous flats from Clarks (if it weren't for Very Busy Mama I'd never have bought these!) but I often wear converse or boots with my jeans. Depends how smart I want to be (read: how likely I am to be wading through mud at the local park).

Jacket/Blazer: New Look (bought this season)
Cardigan: New Look (bought last season)
Vests: H&M (had for ages... my essentials!)
Jeans: Primark (bought last season)
Earrings: Buttons I bought at a local shop and fashioned into earrings!
I'm very happy with this outfit. I feel smart yet comfortable in it - I feel good when I wear it. Like I'm actually someone in charge of things! I think that's down to the jacket.. but it helps when you feel comfortable in clothes. I always think it's important that even though I'm a Mummy who has to get down on my knees countless times a day and get mucky with mud, sand, paint, food (and worse..) that I can still look and feel good about myself.
What are you going to be taking from this season's trends? Bright colours? Stripes? Big chunky accessories? Let me know... share pics!! (let me know if you blog about it, I love to see what everyone's wearing!).
