Lighter mornings and lighter evenings have slowly but surely crept in, here in England.
Double digits (albeit often with a chilling breeze) are becoming a sight when I religiously check the weather on my phone each morning. Daffodils are springing up. The morning light is finally entering our bedroom pre-seven am.
Although we’re undoubtedly far off storing away our winter jackets (apparently people do this? I can’t seem to) I thought I’d venture into a little round up shopping post of great spring items out there. With a trip to California and Arizona coming up (fingers, toes, eye lashes crossed) I’ve also been keeping my eyes peeled for some items for the ever hopeful, two-year delayed holiday…
Lighter layering, blazers, denim, chambray, leather and hues of pink need apply.
Loving acid wash denim and pretty much every Miu Miu jacket.
TOPS & KNITS:
Whilst we still need to layer up in many parts of the world, it’s out with the mega-mega chunky knits. Layer a light knit over a shirt, add a cardigan over a tee.
Big fan of cropped jumpers over here.
Not much is gonna change here for me personally I feel for the foreseeable. Same trousers and shorts in my wardrobe, with tights, apply. Tights are still very much a must-have & bare-leg life feels a while/a million years away*. I’ve linked the absolute most durable tights within the carousel below from Sheertex, whom I proudly worked with on some sponsored content recently. I cannot recommend these tights enough. If, like myself, you’re a) a bit clumsy, 2) talons for nails are life, c) stacking jewellery is a daily must have, you have got to try these.

MY SPRING HERO ITEMS:
Thanks for sharing 😊
Hi Sammi. Can I ask what size you wear in the Miu Miu logo tape stripe shirt and check jacket, I tried some of their shirts on in 36 and 38, I’m a size 10 and they were too tight on the tape Botton and across the chest.
Also how do you get your Dior earrings on so easy, I just bought some after watching your videos and struggled for over 10 minutes trying to get them on 😆
I usually go for a Miu Miu 38 💘
Haha I think you get used to them; I’ve had them for so many years now. Total favs.
Since I found you getting tights under shorts has become an addiction, can’t wait for warmer days though. Thanks for being an inspiration Sammi 💕 x
Oh thank you Steph 🙏💘 I’m ready for the warmer days.🔥
I have to say, I wore tights under shorts in the late ‘80’s (Gen X here), but got out of the way of it once entering the corporate world. I’m now self employed (artist and — yes— tarot card reader), and have rediscovered myself a bit. You dusted off my memory and I’ve reintroduced the shorts and tights combo, thank you so much for that! I’m in my late 40’s, but I’m with you— wear what you want. I don’t look like I’m 48, I don’t act like I’m 48, and I sure as hell don’t dress like I’m 48.… Read more »
This is so lovely to read Kirsten, I’m stoked you’re rediscovering yourself, long may it continue. Also – I’ve never had my tarot professionally read and I love many aspects of the tarot world.
Sammi, I would be happy to read you if you ever decide to ‘get read’. I know it takes a lot of trust, but if you ever feel the urge, feel free to drop me a message. I am Daffodil Tarot on Etsy, if you need to check reviews etc. No pressure at all, just giving you information!
And absolutely correct, I will continue to peel away my layers. It’s all about growth after all, isn’t it? Congratulations on your Blue Tick, as well, absolutely deserved! Take good care!
Hi Sammie. I can’t wait for spring either. Please can I ask if you still enjoy the Dior saddle? I noticed you have the matte black. Would you recommend that one or did it end up getting damaged easily? Also love the all black Gucci bamboo so that’s another option I’m considering. Thank you x
Hey Kay, I most def do still enjoy it 🙂 The matte black is a tough one to look after. I would recommend the grained leather over it if you’re worried about marks etc. Personally, I prefer the Gucci Bamboo over the Dior, but I’m a huge top handle fan. You can also get that all black hardware situ with the Gucci. I have the mini, which I absolutely adore (https://rstyle.me/+iU8dIuFQqqrmqws6uxXmrw) – affiliate – but the small size would be more practical as an everyday bag. It also comes with two straps unlike the Dior, which doesn’t come with any.
I am obsessed with your style. Mine changes very much on my mood and I tend to find black to be very colourful and my go to. I love watching how you style pieces and I am very tempted to introduce harnesses to my wardrobe because gurl, you slay everything you wear and I am living for it. Thank you for sharing and I look forward to more posts from you. Have a fantastic day x
I found you through Tik Tok and you have really inspired me to dress for myself and wear what I love. Thank you!
Dear Sammi, Can you pls do more story telling 😍 I’m greatful for you, your inspiration and the incredible insights! Love how you choose the things. Thanks! ❤️
