RECENT SPRING FASHION PURCHASES...

Boohoo Floral Skater Skirt £12 - I'm really guilty of wearing black skinny jeans every single day as they're just so easy to throw on and go with pretty much everything, but after having a sort through my wardrobe ready for spring a couple of weekends ago I decided I needed to be a bit more adventurous and add a couple of skater skirts and dresses into my spring/summer wardrobe this year. I find that skater skirts flatter my curvy figure best, but my goodness me it has been a nightmare trying to find any!! It seems like everywhere has gone crazy for A-line skirts this Spring, but I find them quite unflattering and 9 times out of 10 they're too short for me #tallgalproblems Thankfully Boohoo came to my rescue and I was spoilt for choice looking through their skater skirt section :) What I love most about this one is all of the colours make it feel really girly and summery, but the black background means it can easily be worn with tights which I've learnt is an absolute essential for the unstable weather we get in England this time of year! 
Dorothy Perkins Bleach Denim Jacket £28 - When I went through my wardrobe I realised that the biggest thing missing was a versatile, spring jacket and after having a little search through Pinterest I realised that I desperately needed a denim jacket in my life. I love how a denim jacket can be layered up with a cosy scarf on the chillier days (like we've unfortunately got at the moment again!) and it's something that can be worn casually in the day time or for a smarter look with a maxi dress or something if we're going out for dinner in the evening :) I debated for quite a while what shade of denim to go for, but I think this bleach denim one goes really well with my pale skin and dark hair and I've worn it loads already; officially my number one spring wardrobe essential!!
Stone Floral Scarf £7.99 - I've become a big fan of scarves recently and really love wearing them with simple jumpers or a basic cardigan. They're one of those really easy and comfortable things to throw on which always make it look like you've made more of an effort and I've had so many compliments on this one already! I love the pretty floral pattern and pastel colours and it was one those items that I just knew I needed the minute I found it on the Newlook website :) I like wearing it with my pastel pink cardigan and it works really well with my denim jacket too.
Newlook Floral Print Tunic £14.99 - I'm a huge fan of tunics; I kind of feel like they're the lazy girls version of a dress as they're a tad more comfortable and can be worn with leggings rather than tights (a.k.a the devil) I find tunics quite hard to come across though and sometimes worry that they look a little bit 'mumsie', but I was super excited to find this pretty little number on the Newlook website. It has elasticated sleeves and is super flowy so it's perfect to wear if you're going to have any food baby action going on! It looks much nicer on and I can't wait for the weather to be warm enough for me to wear it with the denim jacket :)

I'm going to be showing what these all look like on on my Snapchat (hollybean27) if you fancy a peak at them in action :) I've only signed up to Snapchat recently but I'm really loving it and am trying to do almost daily OOTD posts on there (I only don't say daily because I try to have at least one day a week where I wear comfies/no makeup/bed hair so no one really needs to see that hehe!!)

Have you made any Spring fashion purchases recently? I'd love to hear what you think of my picks :)

Love Holly xo

  8. I really need a new denim jacket. I've worn my Forever21 one for so many days over the past few years that it's looking a bit tired. It's very similar to your one so I think I might need to pay Dorothy Perkins a visit! You picked some lovely things :)
