Hi everyone, I’m so happy that Spring is finally on its way, we had some gorgeous sunshine today and daffodils are blooming everywhere!  We’re going to Twycross zoo on Sunday so I’m crossing my fingers for more sun.

With the weather warming up slightly, I’ve been thinking about my Spring wardrobe and getting excited about putting away the thick jumpers and boots in favour of pretty blouses, cute flats and t-shirts.

I recently received this lovely white kaftan from Tresspass which has a delicate floral print with orange-red accents. It has an adjustable drawcord in the same orange-red tone which you can pull according to how fitted you want the waist to be. The loose shape is flattering for all body types and it’s a nice length (I’m 5ft 4). The website shows only one size option so I think it is one-size-fits-all but the label says M so I’m not sure how that works, but nevertheless I think it fits fine – you know I love the oversized look anyway!

When I choose items of clothing, I always consider the various ways I can wear them, and with what. That’s why I love this top – it’s marketed as a beach cover-up, which I definitely will be using it as when I go on holiday later in the year, but I think it also looks great as a tunic! It is made from polyester though so I’m not sure how cool it will keep me in the heat, although the loose airy fit will help.

Worn as a tunic, this kaftan is perfect for an easy breezy but stylish everyday look – just pair with skinny jeans or even leggings and some plain sandals or flats in a neutral colour and you’re good to go anywhere!

Tresspass is mostly known for it’s outdoor clothing and equipment, but they also stock some fantastic swimwear and other clothes, even cute dresses, casual tops and blouses like this one. Their prices are very reasonable too and they seem to often have a sale on.

I hope you enjoyed this post, what do you think of the kaftan being worn as a tunic? Thanks for reading lovelies! XO

Toddler Style: Crushed Velvet Skirt

*Skirt: Mini & Me | *Bow Hair Clip: Mini & Me | Cardigan: Zara | Boots: Clarks 

Hi there! This sweet outfit was what Lizzy wore mid-week for a visit to my parents’ house and a little shopping. A little over dressed but sometimes there’s no harm in that! This would make a perfect party outfit, in fact I’ll probably dress Lizzy in this skirt for her cousin Theo’s birthday party in May.

Hand made by Katrina of Mini & Me, the skirt is made from a gorgeous soft crushed velvet and has a satin trim and a glittery black bow at the waist. I think the contrasting gold bow in Lizzy’s hair looks great with the skirt. I love pairing pink with grey so chose the pale pink cardigan which was a Christmas gift to match, and tucked it in to show off the skirt.

I hope you’re having a relaxing Mother’s Day weekend and that you Mamas out there are being spoilt rotten!

Until next time! XO
