I feel now that Spring has finally sprung, there is no turning back. Even if the weather turns gloomy again, a day or two of sunshine is enough to give us high hopes and retire our heavy coats until next winder.
The sun is shining and it means that many of us were itching for a good Spring clean – and I was ready to look at my wardrobe with a critical eye.
Having let go of a hefty amount of items in the beginning of the year – and a few more in the last couple of weeks, I had a clearer view of the items I wanted to update my wardrobe.
I’ve been feeling really inspired by people I follow, also by what brands have to offer for this upcoming season and my wishlist seems to be ever expanding.
After a few weeks of deliberation and thought, I decided to invest in two pieces for my SS18 wardrobe: The Superga X Alexa Chung trainers and the Staud Bisset bucket bag.
Both pieces, although very current, are also very classic. Being a Converse girl through and through, I opted for the high top canvas in ecru from Chung’s collection and was pleasantly surprised that these trainers are extremely comfortable with no ‘break in’ necessary.
It took me a couple of weeks to finally wear those shoes outside as the weather didn’t cooperate with my spring choices – I definitely didn’t want them to be rained on!
Staud is a brand that I have been following and admiring for a while now – I love all of their bag designs and their clothes, so I was excited to finally acquire something from them! I am still wishing to purchase their velvet handbag, but this navy croc effect bucket bag made my heart sing and was on the top of my list of investment pieces.
Initially, I wanted the brown version of this bag, but being sold out I opted for the navy colour. I find it unusual – it provides a nice detail to any outfit. I like that at night time it looks black, but in day light is bright blue.
By no means my SS18 wishlist is yet fulfilled, but I am happy that I was able to acquire two key pieces for my wardrobe and I see myself wearing them for many years.
Have you got any ‘biggish’ purchase plans for this SS18?
