It might be a little early (weather wise) to be planning for spring but, the early bird catches the worm. Finally, I’m actually finding clothing that I want to purchase. I feel like I experienced a dry season when it came to shopping. There just hasn’t been anything that’s caught my attention.
Well, all that has changed. Buckle up people, I’m about to show you thirty (yes thirty) items that I am in NEED of this spring. Best of all? They’re all under £30. You don’t have to dress poorly just because you’re on a budget (which is something I’m definitely on). And, if it’s just the case your boyfriend (like mine) is sick of your endless parcels being delivered and asks, ‘how can you afford so many clothes?’. Well, your answer to that can be, ‘they all cost less than £30′ (which is technically true if you’re relating to a singular item).
Who knew cow print would work its way into my wardrobe? I’ve been working on embracing patterns this season and I’m starting to love it. If you’re not into anything too outlandish this monochrome bralette will be your new BFF.
I’m not normally one for ruffles but with Spring (hopefully) around the corner, I want to wear clothing that has a bit of movement to it. This polka dot skirt can double up as work-attire when paired with a plain blazer or dress it down with a turtle-neck jumper. Either way, you’re sure to look good.
At a slightly higher price-point, you can’t go wrong with high-waisted jeans. Blue jeans give me anxiety as there are just TOO many options when it comes to purchasing. Is there such a thing as too much blue?
We all know by now that we purchase our sunglasses for the look rather than the practical use. They may not help protect my eyes but they’ll look good for the gram. Luckily living in England I’m not faced with that much sunshine so these make the perfect addition to my spring wardrobe.
I know what you’re thinking, £16 for a headband, really? But hear me out. I’m channelling my inner Mean Girls this season and this headband makes the perfect addition. Headbands are soooo fetch right now.
Slogan T’s are underrated in my opinion. It makes an outfit more exciting than wearing a plain white T. You don’t need to go overboard but this J’adore shirt from BooHoo is a great addition to your Spring wardrobe. Channel your inner Parisian.
Last summer I LIVED in my Birkenstocks. I always hated the idea of sandals, your toes are exposed and in all honesty, I don’t really like feet. But, my opinion has been swayed and now I’m on the look-out for some fresh footwear. These ASOS sandals are at the top of our price-point but I love the chunkiness and buckle details.
I have a love-hate relationship with Trousers. It’s a constant struggle trying to find a pair that has the look AND are comfortable. It’s safe to say this pair of Monki trousers ticks all my boxes. The cropped detail means you can pair them with your fave trainers or dress them up with a pair of heeled boots.
We all know by now that Vinyl is taking over my wardrobe. Some would say I’m obsessed. I love the brightness of the red and it’s guaranteed that it’ll never fade. A win-win if you ask me.
Okay, I know this is a little over the £30 we agreed on but, how can you not love this swimsuit? Even better news. This is a swimsuit that you can actually get wet. Although a non-swimmer like myself would rather just lounge around in the sun wearing it as swimming is a big no-no for me.
Now, this wouldn’t be a blog post by me if I didn’t include at least one sequined piece, would it? Paired with black high-waisted jeans this bralette makes the perfect spring top.
So, in all honesty, I’m not 100% sure on these sandals. I always worry that the straps won’t stay in place or you have to cut off the circulation to your feet for them to stay on. Either way, I’m still going to try them out.
If you didn’t already know I’ve recently swapped all my silver jewellery for gold. There’s something about it that has me hooked and I just don’t see Silver jewellery in the same way anymore. These gorgeous knot earrings from ASOS are the perfect accessory for any occasion.
Back at it again with the slogan tee. For those who want to subtly sass everyone, this is the tee for you.
Picture this. It’s hot, windy, and your hair is sticking to your face. Say no more, ASOS has us covered with this affordable tropical print headband. You can sleep easy tonight knowing I’ve got you covered when the warm weather hits. You’re welcome.
I’ve never been one to really bother with my hair. It’s either up in a ponytail or dead straight. This season I definitely want to try more with my hair and I think this Orelia hairpiece is the perfect accessory to make that half up half down hairstyle a little more exciting.
You definitely need pops of colour in your wardrobe this Spring. I’m 100% one of those people who used to avoid colour at all cost. And now? Last season, mustard was my go-to colour; I have a small feeling red might be this seasons.
I love the fact you can adjust the tightness of this dress with the tie back detail. Stripes are always flattering when on a dress so you can’t really go wrong with this piece from ASOS.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Tie front tops are taking over my wardrobe. I just can’t get enough. I fell in love with a spot print top earlier on this month but to my absolute horror, it sold out. And then, I found this ASOS alternative and I think I love it even more.
Have I shown too many sandals on this post? No? Didn’t think so. These RAID black studded sandals will be making their way into my wardrobe this spring. And for £19.99? It’d be rude not too.
I know this is slightly high-priced for a headscarf but I can totally justify it okay? Actually… I can’t. But, I can tell you, you need it in your headscarf collection.
Jumpsuits have always gone a hit or miss with me. I’m tall and therefore they just don’t really sit well on my body frame. The culotte legs and bralette top hopefully eliminates this problem.
A spring must-have. For those days that you really need to go to the shop to get something but you don’t really want to get dressed (we all have those days).
For those slightly colder April days (basically every day) this long-sleeved wrap dress has you covered. The floral print is keeping with our spring theme but Missguided offers a more practical day dress.
You know ya girl loves animal print. If you didn’t know, you do now. This ASOS leopard slip dress can double up as your coffee date day dress or your ‘out-out’ nighttime attire.
I normally avoid plain white tops for two reasons. One) Realistically, you must have a tan to wear them. Two) They’re nearly always see-through. On this occasion, I feel you can get away with the above. No tan? You can gain a tan (on your shoulders) when wearing it.
Let’s be honest, we only tan the areas on show anyway. If it’s see-through, wear a bikini top underneath. Problems solved.
Originally priced at £35
(but now on sale) this River Island number has swiftly joined my vinyl collection. Not only is it affordable, you’re technically saving yourself money. Need I say anymore?
This season I’m avoiding the usual all black denim dungaree dress. Take a look at this Pull & Bear rainbow stripe detail. Sometimes you don’t realise how the simplest of changes to your outfit can take it to the next level.
Skater dresses will always be popular no matter what. And, if anyone tells you otherwise, you don’t need that type of negativity in your life. The poppy detail differs from your normal floral designs which makes me love this dress even more.
