Spring Outfits I’m Wearing Right Now

It’s been a while but I’ve finally found the motivation to write a blog post and share a few of my most worn outfits right now. I’ve surprised myself with how much loungewear I’ve fallen in love with this year but as all my time is spent at home I want to be as comfy as possible and still look chic. Of course I’ve still been wearing Spring dresses, just to feel like myself and more pulled together. I’ve styled the dresses with a few accessories so you can see how I would be wearing them if I was leaving the house. I hope this post gives you a little inspiration for your own Spring wardrobe.

Long gone are the days when I’d wear an old grey t-shirt to sleep in so I began to invest in more luxurious nightwear. I bought my very first bra from Victoria’s Secret about 3 years ago and honestly I’ve never looked back. They fit my shape beautifully making me feel feminine and glamorous. I’ve bought a few items from their nightwear collection, they make me feel extra special every night as I climb into bed. The set I’m obsessed with right now is this pink satin cami top with matching shorts, both have a delicate lace insert and a slight frill at the bottom. The top has a deep v neckline and spaghetti straps and the shorts have an elasticated waistband.

I never thought I’d be wearing tie dye, yet I’ve totally fallen in love with this pink hoody and shorts set from Boux Avenue loungewear collection. It’s the softest material I’ve ever felt and I genuinely don’t want to take it off. It’s extremely comfortable and looks cute while I;m watching something on Disney Plus.

I’m totally in love with this beautiful soft sweat top from H&M which looks great with my white Topshop jeans. I love an all white outfit as I think it looks incredibly chic. I did actually wear this before the current lockdown and styled it with a cream trench coat, camel stiletto ankle boots and over size sunglasses.

I was given this loungewear set from Victoria’s Secrets for my birthday back in January and had been saving it for best. It’s incredibly soft and I adore the cute ballerina style top. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt over the last few weeks it’s to live your best life every day and make the most of those little luxuries that come your way.

Usually the fist thing I do when I come home is take my bra off, I want to feel free. While I’m in isolation I’ve found the perfect alternative to an uncomfortable underwired bra. This pink lace bralet from Boux Avenue has a beautiful embroidered pattern with a frill bottom, it’s comfy and still gives me some support throughout the day.

Each year I try to pick up at least one basic top in a classic style that I’ll get a lot of wear out of. This ribbed short sleeve jumper literally goes with everything from skirts, trousers and shorts. I love the square neckline which is a little different for me.

There was something about this pretty green polka dot dress that caught my eye on the Nasty Gal’s website. I hardly ever wear green and thought it makes a nice change from pink or white. I love the fit and flare style with short puff sleeves and a shirring bodice. It’s super comfortable to wear with or without a bra, yet I still feel ultra feminine. I also love wearing pink accessories with this shade of green.

It wouldn’t be Spring for me without at least one new white cotton dress, they’re easy to wear yet look chic and stylish even whilst at home. Again it has a square neckline and button down front, this classic design will be in my wardrobe for many years to come. It’s feminine and floaty which keeps me cool in the warmer weather. When we’re allowed out again I’ll be styling this with a straw hat and basket bag for the ultimate summer look.

This 60s inspired pastel floral dress from River Island is simply gorgeous, I wouldn’t usually have gone for a swing style cut but it fits beautifully. I love everything about it, the design, the pattern, the pretty cuffs and frill detail at the bottom. If I’m having an admin day I still like to get “dressed up” as I feel a million times more productive.

 Adrian and I have been enjoying lunch out in the garden and I still want to feel like me. If I was meeting friends in town for lunch I’d normally have worn a dress so I’ve been wearing last years pink broderie anglaise dress with frill sleeves, it’s perfect for garden picnics. It has many special memories, including our holiday to Norfolk and a day trip to London. Those occasions I’ll never take for granted again.

I was so excited to start wearing my Spring Summer dresses after months of heavy knitwear. This first dress I bought for my friends birthday afternoon tea, sadly it was cancelled but we decided to have virtual tea party instead. This pink floaty chiffon dress from Roman Originals is just beautiful and it seemed a shame to keep it hidden in the wardrobe. I wore it for our virtual party and again on warmer Spring days.

This stunning cream crochet button up dress from River Island definitely has the look of a Zimmerman dress but much more affordable, I feel super feminine every time I wear it and being on lockdown certainly hasn’t stopped me. It’s been my outfit of choice for our anniversary dinner and a cheese and wine date night at home.

Which is your favourite from all of these outfits? What sort of thing are you wearing at home?

Styling A Pastel Pleated Midi Skirt For Spring

ASOS Pastel Pleated Midi Skirt

It was a typical warm sunny Spring day in my home town and we’d decided to pop out for for lunch and a spot of retail therapy. The very first item I reached for was this Pastel Pleated Midi Skirt from ASOS which I first featured in my Spring Trends post back in April. I hadn’t intended on taking any photos for my blog but I just loved the outfit so much, we found a quiet spot just by the market and snapped away. To be honest, I can’t remember when my last full on outfit post was, they were one of the main reasons I originally started my blog as Facebook wasn’t exactly the place to constantly share photos of me in my favourite outfit. For the first 18 months I absolutely loved styling up an outfit and sharing it on my blog, Then something happened that made all my confidence just disappear.

It started off with an invitation to an event which I sadly couldn’t go to, I started seeing amazing fashion bloggers standing for photos with other bloggers, underneath floral arches, pink balloons and all the selfie props you could think of. I knew I wouldn’t have been able to get involved with all that, not really, I let the fact that I am in a wheelchair and am unable to  stand get the better of me. The more invites I got, the worse I felt. Why? I hear you say. I felt the odd one out. Add that on to a couple of comments regarding the fact that I buy most of my clothes from Charity shops and those people felt they couldn’t relate to me because they weren’t able to purchase the exact same item. Thankfully it wasn’t anyone who follows me or who I follow.

I didn’t feel confident enough to share an outfit of the day post any more and I certainly didn’t feel good about myself.

Jump forward to 2018 and a lot of tears later along with a few choice words, I’m feeling like my old self again. I told myself so what if I can’t stand to show off what I’m wearing, there are other wheelchair users who want to look nice as well. Maybe I can give someone a tiny bit of inspiration on what they wear.

And let’s face it, this season was meant for me. Florals, pastels and lace are everywhere right now.

ASOS Pastel Pleated Midi Skirt

I stopped dressing for myself and I tried to dress in a way that I thought I should be as a fashion blogger. It just didn’t work. Then I came across some bloggers who had a similar style to me, oh my goodness, this made me so happy. It didn’t matter that they were posting either designer items, high street or charity shop finds, I felt inspired by what they wore.

Que MASSIVE wardrobe clear out. I’m talking 8 black bin liners of stuff that I didn’t feel good in or that didn’t suit my personal style. I sold quite a lot of it so I could invest in some new clothes, quite a lot was also donated to charity.

ASOS Pastel Pleated Midi Skirt

I completely fell in love with this beautiful Pastel Pleated Midi Skirt from ASOS and thought it would go perfectly with a lot of the tops I still had left in my wardrobe. It’s super floaty and has almost a metallic sheen to the material, this suits my feminine style right down to the last pleat. Here I’ve worn it with a cream lace top to make a pretty Spring Summer outfit, I’ve accessorised with a pair of cream, heeled straw sandals, delicate jewellery and a straw hat. I’ve also used my pink faux suede cross body bag from Topshop, which doesn’t leave my side at the moment. I had so many compliments the day I wore this outfit and believe me that certainly put a smile on my face. It’s the kind of skirt that will look equally as good with a casual T-shirt and pair of flat pumps for a more casual vibe.
