After weeks and months of constant British weather talk, the sun has FINALLY come out. I, for one, cannot wait for short dresses, flip flops and basket bags, but I’m afraid 18 degrees doesn’t quite cut it for me yet… however spring style can now officially begin without me freezing to death on my outfit shoots.
To me, a typical spring outfit will always be ‘sandals, jeans and top’, but just in a million different variations. Of course you’ve got different styles of jeans (skinny fit, boyfriend, straight leg), and you can go casual with t-shirts and comfy sandals, or style up your look with smart tops and more of a heeled sandal. This look is definitely more of the latter, and includes a new floral wrap top that I can’t get enough of!
This top is from IKRUSH and I knew it would be that perfect spring item that I could wear for so many occasions. At this time of year it’s all about florals, big patterns, bold colours and of course a wrap style never goes a miss, and this top has it all. I love finding something a little unusual, and I adore the kinda oriental vibes going on in this look, but all in all I love the v-neck and wrap-around tassels which can actually make the top have about 5 different ways to wear.
Colour-wise, black, white and pink is never going to go wrong, and I’ve even teamed the pinky/red hues to my NYX soft matte lip cream which I haven’t worn in AGES – it’s the shade Manila and uh I just can’t wait to get back into bright lips!
As I mentioned earlier, spring style will never fail without the jeans and sandals combination, and this floral top goes just right with some light wash jeans and some studded black shoes from the gorgeous IKRUSH womens sandals range. These sandals are the comfiest things in the world and the silver studs add such attitude to the outfit, don’t they?! I think they’re fab in white too and I just need to be brave and get them, even though I know I’ll have the palest looking feet… Fake tan time anyone?
I think I also need to be braver with jeans and opt for different colours or lighter washes because after a sort through last week I found 90% of my collection were all dark blue or black, but I LOVE these light blue beauties with a little rip in the middle. Just you wait… I’ll be wearing all white in no time!

What do you think of the look?! I think the dark contrast with the top & shoes looks fab with the light contrast of the jeans – if you’re struggling with spring looks then this is definitely something to try out (even if you do it the other way around!).
