Hey Guys,
Long time no speak but I hope you are all well! 
Uni has been crazy busy this term! Finding a balance of work and play is difficult enough without the whole blogging thing being thrown in but I think I'm starting to figure it all out so I apologise for my absence but I'm back! 
So seeing as the winter season is drawing to an end and we're all starting to get into the spring mood, I thought I'd share some of the trends I've fallen in love with and pieces I really want to get my hands on. 
1) Denim.  Whilst Denim is a classic and it technically never goes 'out of fashion', I feel that this spring it will be one of those things which I will want in every form (ie. dress, top, skirt, jacket etc) and frankly, it seems as if I'll be spoilt for choice as so many stores basically have this covered. 
I love Topman's denim bomber jacket, its a great twist on the standard denim jacket and I think the depth of the colour will make it easy to rock a double denim look. 
2) Monochrome. As most of you are probably aware, monochrome is a big trend this spring which means I now I have an excuse to just wear black and white all the time. Monochrome is a great way of looking sleek without making too much of an effort and it allows you to be bolder when accessorising.
3) Smock. I have undoubtedly fallen in love with smock dresses. I love the way they fall and sit so casually. I think these dresses suite all body types and are really easy to style. Chuck on some boots, a leather jacket, funky sunglasses and you're good to go! I particularly love the abstract designs which ASOS have in stock at the moment and I can't wait to get my hands of a few of these this Spring.
4) Neon. So whilst Neon was on trend last season, I feel like it will carry on through to Spring. I love this trend because its so easy to style. Having something neon coloured allows you to keep the rest of your outfit quite neutral without looking boring which makes it perfect for those lazy days when you still want to look decent without putting in too much effort.
5) Footwear. In terms of footwear this spring, woven shoes are already my favourite style and I particularly love this tan pair from Topshop which I think is the perfect spring shoe. I still think flatforms are great for spring/ summer and I'm particularly lusting over the vibrant pair from ASOS (see above).
6) Sunnies. If I could, I'd wear sunglasses all year round but I don't think that would be socially acceptable but as soon as spring roles around, the Sunnies are coming out. I think a nice pair of shades really add to an outfit and give it that added 'oomf'. Nasty Gal have some amazing shades in stock; some are a quite pricey but others are fairly reasonable.

I hope everyone has an amazing week and if you're on half term... I'm very envious of you right now!

Lots of Love,
