Embracing spring fashion (and NOT looking like a grandma) with a little help from Topshop.
Shop the look:
More often than not, I find myself typing random words and phrases into the “search” bar on the side of my home page to see whether I’ve written about them as much as I say them. Examples which come to mind include “side hustle,” “avocado toast” and “Fear of Missing Out” (or “FOMO”).
The reason I mention this is that one of the phrases I was just about to look up was “Seasonal Affective Disorder.” I talk about it enough in real-time as I’m convinced I’m a sufferer, so I assumed I’d mentioned it a fair few times on the blog too. Funnily enough, no results came up just as I typed it in, so I guess now is as good a time as ever to bring it up.
Anyway, now that we’re finally in Spring and the sun’s decided it wants to show itself around London, I’m reminded that:
a) I am really not built for the cold (who wants to take me to Bali? Anyone?); and
b) the sun – and, if we Brits are lucky, a slither of warm weather – without question makes me a million times happier than any winter coat or warm blanket ever could. Basically, don’t ever try to argue with me that winter (and its fashion) is better than spring fashion because we will fight.
I’ve been back in London for some much needed annual leave, and have particularly enjoyed making the most of not having to leave the house with a jacket on. This Topshop blouse has Spring/Summer ’17 written all over it. My mum even suggested to me that I looked like a “fashionable Parisian woman” in this get-up (although it was a different story regarding my shoes). So basically I can die happy.
Is it “summer” yet? Definitely not. But a girl can imagine (and make the most of spring fashion while she’s at it).
