I am a bad person when it comes to shopping. I can buy nothing at all for months and then get so frustrated about my lack of clothes that I buy a lot of cheap and crappy stuff that I half-like. I decided that perhaps this might not be the best way to go about it. A lot of these clothes I don't really like anymore after a while, and since I buy cheaply overall, a lot of them are washed out after a season of wearing them.
So for this spring and summer I am going to attempt a more put-together style of shopping clothes. Items that are always wearable and that I can combine with a lot of different stuff.
What am I aiming for?
For spring and summer I will be all about skirts. I have an A-line leather midi skirt which I absolutely adore - but sadly it really is a little too wintery to be wearing in the summer, so I'll have to build up my spring/summer wardrobe with a similar skirt but in a lighter fabric. A skirt like this can work for colder days (with thin pantyhose and boots) or for hot days (just like that with a pair of flats). I can wear a t-shirt over them with a jacket, or a jumper if it's colder. Basically, the flowy-midi skirt is going to be my love for spring/summer.
I would really like a skirt with a bolder floral print, like one of these below:
Pieces, Gina Tricot & H&M
I want a couple of blouses/shirts. I have a couple of black jeans and some chique suit pants that I wear all year round. During the spring and colder days during the summer, I can wear jeans and top them with a blouse. And these I could also pair with the skirt of course!
Think: Robin Ellacott from Strike, Patsy Mount in s3 of Call the Midwife, and a general 50s-ish low-key office-chic-ish vibe.
I want a pair of low-ish heels that I can walk in all day. More walk-y shoes than show-y shoes. And I would also like to have a pair of brogues-ish shoes that I could wear with jeans and skirt. I already have a pair of flats that are still alright from last year!
I want to have a jacket. I had a leather jacket for jears from Bershka but sadly after all these years it's quite worn out and in need of replacement. I want it in a muted grey/green-ish colour. I've already seen one but it's quite expensive D:
As for accessoiries, I am pretty basic. I love small and delicate gold necklaces and earrings. I would also like a new larger bag to go to Uni because my old one is in desperate need of replacement.
I will slowly start buying stuff for the new season the coming weeks and I'll check back in with you guys to show you the things I bought. Or not! Who knows how much money I'll have to spare for clothes after my wisdom teeth removal bills come in.
For now I hope you've enjoyed a little look into my wardrobe planning for next season!
Lots of love,
