Despite frequently annoying my colleagues by moaning about how fast the year is flying by (I mean August 10? WTF), I’d really like to wrap this winter business up. I’m done.
In the lead up to the seasonal changeover I’ve even felt the need to generate my own political-style three-word slogan: bring on spring.
Seriously KRudd, I’m just a phone call away.
It’s not just the weather I’m done with, I’m bored of wearing the same clothes over and over and over again: floral shirt, leather skirt, khaki jacket, tights, ankle boots, jeans, striped shirt, converse. People are starting to notice I’ve been recycling the same looks every week, it’s getting awkward.
When I had
no life more time I’d meticulously pour over fashion magazines and tear out the clothes I wanted to buy for each new season and pin them up on my wall, which would also serve as outfit inspiration for those mornings when I had ‘nothing to wear.’
So instead of all that, which frankly sounds rather dull and naff now I articulate it, I’m doing my spring fashion wishlist right here because I’m obviously trying to pass off my need to shop as work. Hey, I wonder if I claim tax on anything I buy on this page…hmm *strokes chin*.
Don’t worry I don’t actually intend on buying all these things, I’m too financially irresponsible to have actual savings. So that’s why I’ve set up the Spring Fashion Foundation Fund (SFFF) you can kindly donate to because:
Jokes aside, here’s what I’d buy for spring (if I had all the money).
1. Asymmetrical wrap skirts
I’ve been eyeing these off for a couple of months now but I’ve been waiting until the weather is warm enough that I can wear them with bare legs because to be completely honest, I can never be bothered shaving/tanning in winter.
I have largish fingers, which aren’t that compatible with fine rings – they tend to get cut off and look like encased sausages but what the hell I’m going to do it anyway.
A fashion tipster told me the best place to buy fine jewellery is actually on Etsy, check out the search I did (and image from) here.
3. White textures.
After wearing mostly navy and black all winter long I’m ready to embrace something lighter. You can expect to see plenty of head-to-toe white this spring thanks to designers Stella McCartney, Missoni and Givenchy.
