Writing and reading are my go-to escapes so here we are. Talking about Spring Outfits. I’ve pulled together some spring outfits with layering to help you adapt your planned outfits to suit however high or low you have your central heating set to!
There’s also some IGTV and Tik Tok videos on my channels with more inspo on there. On those, you can see all my spring outfits at a glance. I’ve also included more styling in there too so you can make items more versatile and work for you.
The Floral Midi Dress
When I saw this dress on the George at Asda * (disclaimer I work for ASDA but have not been paid to promote this dress or anything else from there and I bought this) I knew it had to be mine! For £14 it’s a bargain ‘Buffet Dress’ as this style is known now. Basically it’s so loose and swingy you can wear it to an all you can eat and still move afterwards!! The colours are so spring-like, dusky pink, spring green and taupe. Plus, as Meryl Streep says, Florals, for Spring? Groundbreaking. It’s a classic and you can’t go far wrong IMO. Also, it’s really comfy for around the house and the floral print cheers me up too.
To accessorize I picked out the green with a Tot Knots of Brighton * (Gift) velvet headband in pistachio green. It’s the perfect spring green and looks great against my hair colour. It’s also lined inside with vintage Liberty pattern fabric which is oh so cute! If you’re looking for a small biz to support and are in need of some headgear then you know where to go! You can also get 10% off with LUCY10 if it’s something you think will cheer you up! I know a headband makes me feel like I have done something with my hair. This one doesn’t hurt me no matter how long I wear it so it’s perfect for indoors and looking ‘done’ on a video call!
I used my See by Chloe sage green bag to complete the green theme. (I also wore leggings and khaki green boots to keep my legs warm!)
For my outer layer, I wore a cropped shearling denim jacket from Topshop. This is in the sale at £20 now and is the perfect throw on. I’m wearing the 18 here.
When I went to go film the Long and the Short of It with Ruth and Lisa, I wore the dress differently. This time I added cream boots (George in the sale) and a cream polo neck (also George in the sale). Plus a massive coat. This was the day I got caught in a hail storm though so I’d say leggings are a definite need for this dress so far. Over on IGTV, you can see it styled on its own and with a shirt and jumper over it for extra warmth.
The Smock Dress
Next up in the rundown of spring outfits is this dress which has had a lot of love across on Instagram. It’s the In the Style x Lorna Luxe Girls Girl dress from last year. I found the size 24 in the sale for a tenner so decided to get it and glad I did. It’s a loose smock style which I bring in with a belt to give a bit more shape. For Woman Kind North I paired it with leggings and my new pink lace-up Commander boots from Ego. They were £10 in the sale! For accessories, I went to the same Tot Knots of Brighton* headband and added my new Staud Ronne bag in Rasberry Nylon. These are around £215 new, I got mine from eBay for £20 posted and it was new too! If you love it then this colourway is in the sale at £86 here.
In the video, I style it with over the knee boots and then a shirt over it, a blazer and a jumper as different ways to wear it. Can you believe I nearly didn’t keep this dress as I thought it was too big and too short for me? Me neither. As it’s so loose it’s perfect for around the house on its own too so is something I’m wearing right now.
Knit Corset Top
Then for something a bit different (aka not a floral dress) I brought out my fave Marks and Spencer Blazer. Can you believe I nearly didn’t keep this when it arrived either!? I know, madness. This isn’t something I’ve been wearing around the house as anyone who wears jeans around the house must be crazy right now surely? The knitted bandeau top is from I Saw It First (£8 in the sale). I’m wearing the Large size and it just fits. Let’s be honest this is designed for up to size 14 but I figured as it stretches I could probably try it. I paired it with this smocked shirt from H&M. I love this shirt but it does crease easily. The style is really different though and having just checked its now £17 in the sale! Grab it here.
I’ve also paired the knit corset with the plain cream polo neck I wore under the first floral dress. I added my Gucci belt and paired with with a satin skirt that’s also a George at Asda one that I got in the sale for under £4. I’ve found similar ones here and here though.
Hopefully, these three items styles in different ways have helped you get some comfy But good looking outfit inspo for when you’re indoors right now. Plus some layering inspiration so you can wear the items you already have in your wardrobe in different ways. Let me know what you think in the comment below!
