Yesterday I wore an outfit I thought was an excellent transition outfit from my winter wardrobe to spring fashion, if I do say so myself. At the moment here in Bournemouth, the bright sunshine can sometimes make the day seem warmer than it actually is. As soon as I leave the warm toasty confines of my bedroom, it becomes apparent that we’re still closer to winter than summer.
This outfit turned out to be a good middle ground: I can stay cool in overheated lecture theaters, but I’ll still be protected from the chilly wind when I’m outside.
Coat, boots: New Look
Shirt: Lou Lou’s Vintage Fair
Necklace: Become Antique
I wore this outfit to university, but if the jeans were replaced with a smart skirt or tailored trousers it could easily become office wear.
As Meryl Streep said in The Devil Wears Prada: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” A patterned shirt like this one adds a bit of fun to an outfit without reverting back to a default floral shirt.
Plus, this coat will protect me from sudden showers and wind chill, but if the sun decides to show itself it can be worn open for a more casual feel.
