my spring must-haves!

Now I've picked up a couple of sale bargains and a treat or two I'm turning my attention to a few classic basics to bag for Spring. First thing on my mind is a new jacket. I've already purchased this Topshop shackett but a little while ago my mate Sue sowed the seed after she picked up a black denim jacket in Primark. Every time I go into Primark I look for one but I've never been lucky enough to find it. I've now decided I *NEED* one. So I got researching. I knew what I was after, an oversized boyfriend (or girlfriend) style was exactly what I had in mind. So this one is now winging it's way to me.

Now, I dipped my whole foot in the band t-shirt trend last Summer (four of those at the last count) and to be honest I overdosed on stars too. How's about this to lighten up your t-shirt collection for Spring?

I am always searching for a good alternative to wear instead of jeans. I actually picked up these trews at the end of last Summer and bought them in navy pinstripe too. I think these are going to feature heavily here once it is ankle baring weather. I am so looking forward to wearing these again. They are back in stock again and I hope they become a line that H&M do every season as they are most definitely a wardrobe staple! N.B I sized up and bought a UK 14 in these, I'm normally a UK 10 but I prefer the slouchier look. I also unstitched the hem on mine and rolled them up!

And lastly....more shoes! I lived in my white Office Dapper loafers last year. Sadly they are looking a bit tired now so I've been looking for an alternative white shoe as they were so useful. They went with so much. I love these from Topshop but I think I'd like a completely different shape and these seem to fit the bill. They are reduced, with most sizes left but there is another more purse friendly option here.

Have you ear-marked any potential wardrobe classics for Spring yet? What must-haves are on your wish list? Do share!

I find myself continually checking the *New in* on all of my favourite retailers and I am frequently updating my current cravings (above in the sidebar) with any newness that catches my eye!

No doubt I'll be back soon with a few more of my findings! :0)

Until then, wishing everyone a lovely week!


  1. Great picks!!



  2. Love the lightning bolt T shirt and have it hanging around in my virtual basket while I make a final decision on the edit (I've quite a bit in there at the moment!) I love its connotations - Bowie, ACDC and it's the symbol of the Irish 'Repeal' movement, to repeal the 8th amendment and give women full control over their own bodies. 'lightning bolt' everything!

    1. Marie you have just given me another 3 reasons why I *NEED* that t-shirt too! It's gorgeous isn't it! xx

  5. You are most welcome for the mention Sue.....thank you for the inspo! I'm going to try it under some of my cocoon style coats so I can start wearing mine right away! xx
