Spring Styling with House Of Fraser

I don’t know about you guys but I am so ready for some nice weather here in UK now. That little taste of sunshine we had a couple of weeks ago was so lovely but in typical UK style, it didn’t stick around for too long! Please come back soon sunshine, I miss you!

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been adding lots of new pieces to my Spring wardrobe and I just cannot wait until I can ditch the knitwear, chunky coats and boots. As much as I love all of those items and getting wrapped up warm, I am so ready for floaty dresses, denim skirt and lightweight coats.

A couple of pieces I’ve recently added to my wardrobe are from House of Fraser who I must say have the most amazing range on their website at the moment. I’ll be honest, it’s a place I often forget about when online shopping but since having a browse recently, I’ll be ordering from them a lot more often!
I picked up this beautiful floaty floral dress by Oasis and I’m so so so in love with it. Everything about it screams Spring from the beautiful floaty fabric to the pastel colours and the floral print. Not to mention I loved swishing around in it - I felt all kinds of lady like!

I just know I’m going to get so much wear out of it as it’s the perfect style for so many different occasions. I have quite a lot of christenings and weddings that it’d be perfect for dressed up with heels a clutch but it can also be dressed down with sandals and a big pair of sunnies for BBQ’s or a day out. I’m also thinking it would be a great dress for the races paired with a fascinator.

Alongside the dress I also got this amazing trench coat from HOF's huge selection of coats and jackets. I don't know about you but I personally find it really difficult to find a suitable jacket for Spring time. Other than denim jackets which don't always go with every outfit, I really struggle finding something I can wear with virtually any outfit that's lightweight enough to keep me cool when the weather warms up but something that will also keep me warm in the evenings when the temperature drops. Does anyone else understand the struggle?! Well, I may have found the answer - a duster jacket.

I’ve seen a few people wearing this style of jacket recently and I've always been a fan of how they look but have never come across one I loved enough to justify a purchase - until now at least. This Navy duster from the brand Mint Velvet is absolutely perfect in every way. Firstly I love that it's a colour that will go with everything, secondly it's insanely comfortable (seriously the most lovely soft fabric) and thirdly it's super flattering. It's a great length as it can be worn over pretty much any outfit including midi dresses like the one in this post and the tie waist synches you in creating a lovely silhouette. It reminds me of the kind of jacket you'd see Kate Middleton or Meghan Markle wear - super chic and classy, if I do say so myself! 

Also, to all you fellow bloggers out there - one of these jackets will be an absolute life saver when shooting street style outfits. There's been so many occasions when I've had to shoot a more dressed up outfit in the middle of the day and have felt a right idiot walking around in a mini dress and heels with no appropriate jacket to cover myself up. However, this one is a dream because you can pop it over anything and you can instantly go from dressed up to the nines to day time chic in a matter of seconds, haha! The small things!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Are you loving shopping for Spring pieces at the moment? I'd love to hear what you've been buying in the comments below!
