Each season a look will catch my eye. The look that keeps catching my eye on social media (aka Instagram) this Spring is jacket, skirt, sneakers and cross-body bag. I am calling it Feminine Relaxed Chic. Not sure that will cotton on but it’s pretty, quick to throw on and comfortable for racing around and if you get it right – very cool. (Yes I was born in the 80’s so cool is my default word. I understand the word to describe cool now is ‘sic’. Just isn’t going to happen. Can you imagine if I started describing things as sic?)
Start with the skirt. Nothing says Spring like a skirt and a full length or mid length is a good way to ease you into sunnier months before you have a tan.
Full Length Maxi Skirt
Fun, flattering and hides a multitude of sins.
I am loving this one.
Love the elasticated wide waistband.
Hi Lo Skirt
This is low at the back, high at the front – perfect to cover up the back of your legs and to show off your ankles and footwear)
Great with a tucked in white t-shirt.
Mix up your fabrics and wear this organza with a cotton top and sneakers for a glamorous low key look.
Metallic Creped Midi Skirt
An easy way to wear metallic if you fancy it but feel it is too much near your face.
This rose gold skirt is a versatile colour and also comes in grey. A price that allows you to buy as an experiment!
A plain T shirt if you have a loud skirt.
Slogan/Logo T Shirt
I do love a slogan tee. (BTW a Logo Tee has the brand on it and a Slogan has a picture or words not branded… You probably knew that already – it has only just clicked with me!)
Quite Gucci inspired.
Simple but sassy… 😉
Jessica Alba nails this look by adding a fitted denim jacket. It not only gives a bit of structure but will also keep your warm if the temperature drops.
This is a good length (to hip) and quite stretchy.
I would personally find it hard it hard to wear a leather jacket in any colour other than black, although there are a lot of cream and pale pink jackets at the moment. (Mint Velvet is a good start if that’s what you are after)
For the style and quality – this is a steal. Loving Oasis jackets at the moment!
I am so pleased this look works with sneakers. Flats could look a bit mumsy and boots just need to be consigned to the back of your wardrobe.
The yellow! Platformed! Height and colour = love!
Ok, not for everyone, but did feel they had to be brought to your attention as they are so fun!
These are classic and versatile. Not everything you wear has to be a conversation starter!
It has to be a cross-body bag! Keep your hands free to hold little hands and grab one of these. I love these colourful ones.

Hope this has given you some ideas. I am looking forward to putting away some winter clothes and experimenting with this look!
Lots of love
