Spring essentials

Spring is upon us, finally the rain has stopped and the sun is beginning to shine. Spring has always been my favourite time of year, not only is my birthday approaching but I love the flowers that begin to pop up everywhere and the smell that starts to linger in the air.

Here are my essentials this spring.

A pair of pointed flats - having examined closely the other options, my chosen flats for this spring are from & Other Stories, if you haven't heard of them they are a great store, the younger sister of COS. so far my only purchases have been their shoes and beauty products, which are also great and smell divine.

A new nail colour & other Stories have every colour you could dream of and have quirky names like 'Estamet Rust' and 'Tiretaine Blush'. These two took my fancy..

Some pastel cashmere. Uniqlo have been my cashmere jumper go to for about 5 years. The jumpers last, they are very warm and they are sturdy. Through university my staple grey and black went through the washer and the dryer and lived to tell the tale (I would not recommend doing this! Cashmere is best hand-washed). My newer cashmere purchases however get a lot more TLC.

The first thing to do with your new jumper (or anything cashmere for that matter) is to wrap it up into brown paper and place it in the freezer for 24 hours. This reduces the pilling and bobbling so makes them look fresher and feel smarter for longer.

A new shirt. Silk or cotton here both are elegant and both are fresh for spring. Here are two from Equipment. in a beautiful spring pastel and natural white.

A Pastel spring coat. Cos are always great for coats, for any season. This Pink one is perfect.

Also get those winter boots resoled - it will give them a new lease of life and they will almost feel new again.
