Daylight saving has officially begun, and for me that means I can actually start looking forward to spring and summer. This year I’m going to try and inject a little more colour in my wardrobe, particularly with blue and some pastels for spring. Blue shades are my pick for the colour of SS14 and I love it contrasted against crisp white or a marl grey.

Nearly all of these pieces are from Cotton On, it just turned out that way! I do think that Cotton On has really stepped up their game recently. There are so many on-trend pieces that are super affordable, it’s probably my favourite ‘high street’ store at the moment, so definitely check it out if you haven’t had a look in a while.

What are you picks for spring?

Spring Lookbook

Spring Lookbook
This is my latest outfit inspiration. After buying some jellies recently I have been thinking about how to style them, this is just one of the many outfits that I need in my life!
If you are wondering how to achieve this look (and are from New Zealand) there are jellies almost identical to these in Wildpair and a very similar skater dress in Cotton On. In terms of the denim jacket, I haven’t spied one quite as good as this (it’s from H&M), but I’m on the look out! The red lipstick featured here is from Rimmel so Farmers will definitely have you sorted!

Spring Nail Art

Spring is officially in full bloom so here is some nail art inspiration on how to update your nails this spring!

I opted to go for a lime green base so used Maebelline Mini Colo Rama in ‘Green Park’. It has a really lovely mint green tone to it and was the first nail polish that caught my eye when I went hunting through my collection for spring colours.

This nail polish is also really easy to put on, it only needs about a couple of coats to get this shade. I’ve got a few colours from this range so would definitely recommend them!

I then used two Orly nail polishes to the spotted nail art. The yellow shade is called ‘Lemonade’ and the lavender is called ‘Lollipop.’ Both of them are really lovely pastel shades that are just perfect for spring!

In terms of the application of the nail art, all I did was get a little of the polish on the brush and just dot my nail. It’s as easy as that!
