March is here, and that means spring is in the air. I’ve ventured out without my coat once or twice and not completely regretted it, so it must be time to start looking at my spring wardrobe. I’m not one for getting a complete new wardrobe each season – the weather doesn’t vary that much here in the north east of Scotland!

I do like to add to it each year though, as and when clothing needs replaced. I have style staples that vary slightly from season to season – particularly for Monday to Friday when my main task for the day is surviving the school run.

Slogan T-Shirts

I’ve always been a sucker for a slogan t-shirt, but over winter they are often covered up. Spring is my chance to wear them without always covering up with a big hoodie and jacket.

I have just started wearing this “Love Ya Self” t-shirt. As much as I love to wear bright colours, the monochrome goes with everything and I can easily brighten it up with a bold lippy.

I’ve gotten a little more brave and added a cropped t-shirt to my collection. I used to think crop tops were only for super skinny teenagers but I actually really like this one. When teamed with some high waisted trousers there isn’t really much on show anyway! Plus, my body has housed 2 babies – who cares what size it is.

Cosy Knitwear

I may be excited for warmer weather, but I’m not completely deluded. It can still be pretty cold here, especially early in the morning when we’re rushing up to the school. A piece of cosy knitwear to pull on overtop of my t-shirts takes the sting out of the cold, and makes a nice spot for the kids to cuddle in to later.

My latest addition is this lightweight grey knitted jumper. It is not heavy or bulky, but still warm on cold days. It has a cuffed sleeve design and looks great with a pair of jeans for a casual look.

High-Waisted Jeans

15 years ago I wouldn’t be seen dead in a pair of jeans that was anything other than low-rise. Now I can’t get them to come high enough! They are so much more practical when you’re constantly bending over to put on kids shoes or pick up your changing bag.

I like to have a good staple pair of jeans that will go with everything, and then I wear them until they practically fall apart. My last pair developed holes in both the knees – and not of the fashionable kind! For spring I picked out a new pair of high waisted flared jeans that will go with just about anything. I’ve paired them with all the tops above and so far so good – I can tell they’re going to get lot’s of use.
