Spring Wishes

Spring
After a few false starts and much wishful thinking, Spring has finally sprung!

As soon as this time of year arrives, I always find myself fighting the urge to Spring Clean with the vigour of a Victorian housemaid. The first casualty is aways the contents of my wardrobe. Fist of all comes the switch around, unpacking all my fair weather clothes from where they are stored (stuffed) in my tower of suitcases. Inevitably this means hauling everything out of cupboards, suitcases and drawers. Making a huge mess and eventually deciding that that I hate everything I own. In preparation for this eventuality I made myself a wish list of Spring treats.

Spring is always assosiated with florals and pale colours, which I like but, as always I am hopelessly devoted to French navy. How cute is this Sailor Coat from Louche at Joy, and the Gretal dress from Dear Creatures at Ruche?

I love florals but not always to wear, I already have a Liberty Suitcase, but that doesn't stop me yearing for another, after all its extra storage for new clothes! For a while now I've been collecting vintage bed linens in white, pink and pale green so this floral bedspread from Urban Outfitters would perfectly compliment them. As for the Liberty Notebook, and Fieldguided Tote, I just really, really want them!

I'm always so amused by the names that fashion magazines come up with to discribe a different colours. Here we could have Camel, Fawn, Tawny or Caramel when really just all in an attempt to avoid the words Brown and Beige. Either way, I'm a fan! I'm already worried about having to pack away my cape coat so I've been searching for a lightweight replacement in the same colour. I love this coat from Louche at Joy, it has a brown corduroy collar and elbow patches and the lining is printed with little Scottish terriers. I do love nice lining fabric!  The heart shaped box bag from Urban Outfitters is a must, pefect for wearing with sundresses, cats-eye specticles and these Topshop wooden heels. Perhaps whilst listening to old crackling record on this Crosley record player from Urban Outfitters? Not at all necessary but a girl can dream...
