My Spring wardrobe wishlist

 

In a few short days Winter will be over for another year.  I’m breathing a sigh of relief, because I can’t stand cold weather.  I’m excited about the beginning of Spring: the warm sunshine, the blooming flowers and of course, updating my wardrobe!  I’ve taken a look through the shop of my newest sponsor Ultimate Outlet and selected a couple of things that I wish would appear in my wardrobe this Spring.

It is my opinion that a girl can never have too many pencil skirts.  They’re flattering, they’re sexy and they’re oh-so-easy to wear.  I’d wear this gorgeous purple one with a cute sweater and heels for a vintage look.

For lazy days at home, I prefer a comfy skirt to trousers.  This gorgeous teal skirt would look fantastic paired with loafers and a soft jumper, or dressed up with a camisole and boots for a boho daytime look.

There’s something so romantic about the warm days of Spring, and nothing says romance quite like lace.  I adore the vibrant shade of this crimson shirt, and I’d wear it with a fitted pair of jeans or a pencil skirt and heels.

After the grey days of Winter, there’s nothing like a jolt of colour to put a spring in your step.  This vibrant colour block dress would make an ideal addition to my work wardrobe.  I’d also love to add a beehive, big earrings and go-go boots to give it a mod flavour.

High-waist wide-leg pants by Spiegel.

I’m obsessed with high-waisted, wide-legged pants.  They create such a fun silhouette and I love the movement they give with every step.  They can be dressed up or down with ease.  For a more formal look, add a pretty blouse, heels and a chain belt.  For weekend chic, add a pair of funky boots and tuck a tough tee into the high waistband.

Spring is the season for cute cardigans and sweaters, but sometimes I worry that all that knitwear looks a little bit nana-ish.  What better way to combat the wardrobe doldrums with a sequinned cardigan?  This sparkling cardi is ideal for updating your wardrobe.  I’d wear it buttoned-up and tucked into a pencil skirt for a sexy bombshell look.  I could also wear it open over a slogan tee and ripped jeans to add a splash of glamour to a casual rock-and roll look.

Although I’m trying to pinch my pennies at the moment, I could easily afford to splash out on a couple of my dream items from Ultimate Outlet.  Every single item I’ve chosen costs less than $25, and I could get my entire wishlist for under $100!  The value prices certainly appeal to the frugal fashionista in me.

What’s on your wardrobe wishlist this Spring?  Do you have a favourite item from Ultimate Outlet?

  1. I have to confess I haven’t got my head around a seasonal wardrobe – apart from obviously summer or winter pieces I have stuff that I make work for all 4 seasons by adding/subtracting layers and cardigans… Love the colour of that teal skirt!!!

    • I don’t really have a seasonal wardrobe, I like to wear most things year-round. But I do like to buy a couple of new pieces each season, just to keep things fresh and interesting.
