How to dress for the temperamental Spring weather...

I thought I would give you all a break from being all dressed up by sharing one of my favourite casual outfits that I have worn recently.  This oversized jumper is one of my favourites and although it has only ever made it to the blog once before, I wear it a lot. I find this time of year really difficult to dress for as it is cold when I leave in the morning but I am boiling by the time I get home- I don't know how anyone manages! Luckily this outfit comprises of lots of thin layers which are surprisingly versatile as well as being ridiculously comfy. I mean, you're only about one step away from pyjamas which can only be a good thing, amirite?!

Jumper: Laura Ashley c/o Matilda, top: Mango, jeans: Warehouse, shoes: George at ASDA
As you can see, this photo shows my hair in all its wavy glory. Although I love a sleek bob, I do like my hair 'au naturel' too. It has taken me many years to learn to love them but I wouldn't trade in my thick curls for anything! I also went for a more natural look with my make-up too. I recently re-found my Revlon lipbutter in 'Peach Parfait' which is the perfect nude-y peach shade which makes a nice change from all the bright lipsticks that I wear!

Skinny jeans are the perfect accompaniment to a jumper this boxy and these Warehouse ones fit like a glove due to being worn so much, You can almost see the beautiful L K Bennett charm bracelet I got from my parents at Christmas here too, I don't wear it every day because I am worried about damaging it but it was a good way to dress this outfit up slightly and to highlight the silver buttons in the jumper! This Max Factor Angel Nails varnish is one of my favourites and although it is a shimmery pale gold, it picks up whatever colour it is next to and has ended up looking silver here. It's a lovely neutral shade and definitely worth picking up if you see it instore or online!

I always wear the same thing really, a dress. I add a cardi in the winter and a big coat and then ditch the cardi and wear my waxed jacket in the summer xx

I love your hair here, Maria! Breton stripes are perfect Spring attire. I really like that pretty bracelet. :)

it's a bit in between at the moment isn't it? Confusing me, do we jacket, or do we not jacket? I like the idea of a oversized jumper.
