OOTD: I Can Smell Spring

Spring Outfit Image

A change in season is always a big deal, as far as fashion is concerned, because we fashion lovers get to rearrange our wardrobe and usher in pieces for the new season. I love spring because it has the perfect temperature, not too warm or too cold, but it is the endless rain that comes along with it, I don’t like too much. I also love the fact that I can still layer up light pieces in spring. This weather makes styling outfits a lot of fun.

This black dress by Accessorise is a lovely addition to my spring wardrobe. It is a Lace Insert Tassel Maxi Dress and it is my only maxi dress at the moment, not had one in ages. This versatile piece is the perfect maxi dress. It creates an effortlessly chic look, and the elasticated waistband with adjustable tasselled ties, means the sizing is quite flexible too, which is great for petite ladies.

I love the fact that this piece is so easy to style up with a jacket and high heels like I have done here, or dress down with flats for a walk on a beach.

Speaking of beaches, I am badly in need of a proper holiday. It feels like I havn’t had one in ages. In an ideal situation, I would want to visit Dubai again. I visited the beautiful country some years ago and it was the best holiday I ever had, followed closely by my Miami holiday. The issue is, flights are so expensive these days, it is almost impossible to go away nice, so I always end up visiting a country in EU, but let’s see how it goes, fingers and toes crossed. Do you have any holidays planned for the year? Where are you off to?

  1. You look great! 😊
    I have seriois holiday withdrawal too… I’ve been checking get online almost everyday, but flights are expensive as you mentioned, and our weak SA currency doesn’t help either. 😢

  2. The outfit is lovely, I love that I can still layer in Spring, although it’s a little more rainy than I’d like it. I’m incredibly lucky though that I have a few holidays/ mini breaks to look forward to x

  3. Fab dress. You look great. My favourite fashion season is now. I love the fresh feel of the spring and summer coming in.
    I’d love to say I have a holiday planned and something to look forward to. Unfortunately I don’t. It will be something off the cuff and totally unplanned, as and when. But sometimes I like doing it that way better.
    I have an Aunt in Dubai right now, the photos are stunning.

  4. You look great! I can’t wait until the weather is warmer so I can wear dresses. Spring is one of my favourite seasons 🙂 I love that you teamed your dress with a denim jacket 🙂 Also, your shoes are so pretty. xx

  5. Wonderful. This black dress is gorgeous. I love the way you have put everything together. Love your shoes, jacket scarf and everything.I am thinking of going to Dubai too this summer but I see how it goes.

  6. Love it!!! I love long dresses… I don’t dare wearing them to work though… but I made a promise to myself that I will do so this summer! They can think what they want… 😀

  7. I am loving that look, although you are making me cold looking at it haha it is freezing out today and can’t imagine summer ever coming round at the moment!
