Dress: Boden - Shoes: Mel heart shoes - Bag: Zatchels
Tights: c/o MyTights - Necklace: Pandora - Jacket: George
I wore lots of my favourite things on Sunday for a stroll around Cardiff with Martyn. This seaside print Boden dress was my go-to summer outfit of choice last year and I saw a little bit of sun peeking out behind the clouds so I decided to dig it out of the back of my wardrobe and give it its first 2015 outing. The jacket cost all of £4 on eBay and has been worn hundreds of times and my gold Zatchels bag has seen better days but I won't ever part with it. My fun Mel jelly shoes make a nice change from the boots and black pumps I've been wearing all winter. My outfit was definitely spring appropriate I think and a departure from my normal black ensembles and opaque tights.
Cathays Park was in full bloom and looked magnificent. I work in Cathays so I often spend lunch time here and I'm very lucky to be able to spend time here whenever I like. Cathays Park is home of Cardiff University (where I studied and now work) City Hall and lots of other lovely civic buildings. It's only a five minute walk from the high street so well worth a visit if you come to Cardiff this summer.
I was feeling very spring-like decided to ditch the black tights for a day and wore some Shelina tights from Falke instead. They are made from a fine 12 denier fabric but with an 8 denier appearance, are super soft to the touch and feel breathable and light. I don’t think anyone would know I wasn’t bare legged. They are very fine but are strong enough for every day wear and they were designed to fit longer legs so I didn’t need to keep on yanking up my tights. I struggle to find tights pale enough for my blue/white legs but these were the perfect match.
Are you embracing lighter colours for spring or are you still head-to-toe in black?
