(Jumper: H&M, Belt: ASOS, Jeans: ASOS (old but similar here & here), Bag: Mansur Gavriel, Shoes: Castaner)

I know everybody says it but London in the spring time is truly when the city comes to life. Although there's almost something rose tinted about the city on a rainy day (I always think of the scenes in the Parent Trap to paint something a little more romantic than the 48 bus charging through puddles and a sea of umbrellas littering Waterloo Bridge)- but seeing the city light up with a smattering of sunshine, the (brief) appearance of magnolia and cherry blossoms as well as the sticky scent of beer and sound of chatter from pub gardens come 5pm on a Friday really makes all of the difference after months of grey skies and diagonal drizzle.

So, to celebrate a Friday that didn't require a wooly coat- I pulled on one of my favourite spring additions in the shape of these espadrilles which fit perfectly into an already blush-toned wardrobe (and are bloody comfortable too) and paired them with a chunky knit, matching bag and boyish kick flares to pare things down a little. It made for the perfect transitional get up- and teamed with a spot of sunshine, a lazy late lunch with friends and a girlie night in, it's safe to say I'm glad spring has finally arrived.

  19. Spring definitely feels like it's sprung in Leicester today although I know the temperature will drop again the minute I resign my boots and winter coat to the closet.

    Also, adore that bag.

  26. I love this outfit! The shoes especially are so amazing. I love that whatever outfit you post you obviously wear. Some bloggers take an outfit off as soon as the pictures are done.

  27. I love how cute this outfit is! Especially the heart belt! So different compared to what I've seen lately of the Gucci belt! Nice to see someone's switching it up! Cute location too!

  28. Spring is an amazing time here in Germany as well, my favorite season with all the flowers and the sunshine. Your bag looks great, I like the unique shape, it is not like something I have seen a lot.

  31. This jumper is so pretty! This is my absolute favourite colour. (And it kinda matches your blog theme, so well done with that haha) Yes, spring has finally arrived and it makes me want to go around taking photos of cherry blossoms and have nice dinners with friends too - one of the best times of year!
