This is not a drill: we’re officially moving out of winter, and spring is finally here. (Well, nearly: the first day of spring is Monday, 20th March – but we can dream, right?)

As the weather gets warmer, it’s time to refresh your wardrobe and home accordingly: let’s banish those bulky winter coats to the back of the closet, and swap out Christmassy candles for zesty, summertime scents.  If you’re wondering where to start, we’ve got you covered: here are five things you need to update your life for the springtime…


Pink Velvet Chairs

If you’ve been keeping an eye on the trends of 2017, you’ll know that pink is dominating the catwalks and fashion weeks of late – and now, it’s the colour to inject into your homes, too. The springtime homeware accessory to own is a pink velvet chair – whether that’s a full blown sofa, wingback armchair or a statement medallion chair – in whatever hue you prefer: soft candyfloss, barely-there blush or full-on fuchsia.


Injections of Lace

Spring is definitely the season for lace: whether it’s a subtle trim on an oversized sweater, a sexy bralette worn underneath a silk shirt, as a throw draped across your bedding or a quirky set of curtains, lace is a must. It’s delicate, dainty and delightfully kitsch, and we love it!


Grey Nails

Wave goodbye to the berry-toned talons of winter: spring calls for dove-grey manicures in blunted, coffin-box shapes. Choose soft grey hues, rather than dark and gothic polishes, and stack silver rings on your fingers for a pop of metallics – very Pinterest-worthy…


Kitten Heels

Yes, really – kitten heels are set to be one of the hottest trends for spring. Give your ankles a timely break from sky-high stilettos and embrace their lower, sleeker counterparts: choose pointed styles to elongate your legs, and pair them with cut-off chinos and a Breton stripe tee for a preppy, all-American vibe.


Embroidered EVERYTHING

Have you got the memo yet – this season, it’s all about embroidery. On everything, everywhere, all the time…

We’re talking fully embroidered jackets, trousers with intricate detailing snaking up the legs, OMG-clutch bags and boots rocking applique: bring it into your home, too, with embroidered cushions, bedding, and soft furnishings.

Lover of statement accessories, scented candles, anything pink and a little bit of sparkle. A Southern girl in Manchester, when I’m not drooling over designer handbags I can be found fashion blogging, or exploring my new Northern home. My signature look? A nude lip and a very flamboyant pair of shoes.
