What better way to welcome a new season than with spring floral fashion? Sorry, Miranda Priestly, I know they’re not exactly “ground-breaking” but florals will always look ridiculously cute for spring. As you may be able to guess from my less than subtle clue, my latest Look of the Week is alllll about florals.
My ‘spring floral fashion’ clothes:
I adore wearing floral fashion for spring and couldn’t stop myself from buying this beautiful blouse from Zara. The colour combination couldn’t be more suitable for the warm weather. I love wearing this blouse with skirts and trousers. It’s super lightweight, making it ideal for those ‘is it going to be sunny, is it going to be cold?’ spring days.
Black A line skirts like this one from Zara are a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. I bought this about seven years ago and I still love wearing it. This skirt is easy to style with shirts, t-shirts, or jumpers when it’s cooler.
My ‘spring floral fashion’ accessories:
No stranger to a floral headband or two, I love wearing this pink floral number. It complements the blouse perfectly. As a testament to my love for fashion, I’ve had this for years. I embrace a wardrobe with longevity. After all, who cares if you haven’t worn something for a while? It’s the perfect excuse to dust off your favourites and wear them with pride!
I make no secret of my love for Japanese inspired style and Japanese platform shoes are the absolute dream. I bought these beautiful Tokyo Bopper platform shoes during my holiday to Japan. Hugely popular around the world, these shoes look uhmazing and satisfy my craving for platform shoes. I’m in good company too, as J-pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is also a fan.
Being 5’2”, I’m often asked if it feels strange being taller with these platform shoes, or whether they’re uncomfortable to walk in. While it can feel a little peculiar having extra height, these are extremely comfortable. Would you believe me if I said I’m so used to wearing them that they’re like slippers? (Note: I’m being serious by the way).
I adore the strap detailing of my Tokyo Bopper shoes. These are ideal to wear with dresses and skirts. When paired with tailored trousers or fitted jeans, they add an extra touch of glamour. Although I bought three pairs, I already regret not buying more but you know… I’d already exceeded my baggage allowance…
To continue the Japanese inspired style in my spring floral fashion look, I’ve added this quirky bag from Katayama Bunzaburo Shoten. As soon as I saw it in a department store in Ginza, Tokyo, I knew I had to have it. So strong was the lure of this beautifully crafted design. Made from silk using the traditional Kyo Kanoko Shibori tie-dye technique, it’s the perfect way to make an entrance.
Round sunglasses are extremely popular for spring/summer and these vintage shades add a unique look to my outfit. The colourful vintage earrings match the headband perfectly.
