It's Easter again, doesn't time fly! Last year I wrote about using the long weekend to have a wardrobe sort out.
This year I will be doing the same again and reminding myself of the tips from Katherine in last year's post.
This year Easter is a bit earlier and we have hardly been blessed with any spring weather yet - we've had the odd day/hour/minute :) but really nothing to get inspired by.
I have even bought a few new bits of knitwear in the sales as I have got fed up with my winter colours but it is not time yet to get the lighter knits or spring colours out. It is so frustrating (yeah I know it's no ones fault)!!. These three Hobbs jumpers were all reduced in the sale and I thought with two having 3/4 sleeves I could make them work until it does finally warm up! I love a pink jumper for spring. Hobbs knitwear sale here or at John Lewis here.
But I really do need to spend some time moving my heavy winter wardrobe items out and into storage and getting out my spring / early summer bits. I've already started to sort my scarves out. Look out for my Easter discount at Sweet Bea for some really super scarves and accessories. I will be sharing some ideas for scarves that double as a sarong for the holiday season! I know it feels a long time off but it's fun to plan and dream. And I'm doing my first BLOG GIVEAWAY over on INSTAGRAM! You will have the opportunity to win a beautiful pom pom scarf from Sweet Bea so make sure you are following me and look out for the post on Thursday.
I've already bought two new summer dresses! I am always on the search for cotton dresses and I spotted a few in Monsoon so I ordered one and I am very pleased with it. I also had a £15 voucher and 20% off at Boden so decided to replace my much loved maxi dress. Monsoon Paisley Print Dress and Boden Diana Jersey Maxi Dress. The Boden dress is now reduced in the mid-season sale!
We have a fantastic trip to Sri Lanka organised this summer so I will need lots of cool cotton dresses that don't crease.
What I've been wearing:
Hobbs Etta Jumper Now £52 at John Lewis worn here with black coated jeggings from Next, scarf from Sweet Bea and red boots £18 in the sale at Marks & Spencer.
This blue coat is a few seasons back Boden sale bargain - always the best time to pick up a coat! I am wearing it with a new pom pom navy scarf from Sweet Bea and new navy boots from Hobbs (also in the sale but sold out at John Lewis and Hobbs online - Next have a couple of sizes but not showing the reduction)! I like a navy boot for spring and my old Cara ones had given up!
That's all for now - remember to look out for my Sweet Bea discount and giveaway coming soon and if you would like to have email reminders of new posts and special offers direct to your inbox please do sign up here.
