A Spring in Your Step

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…

JACKETS:

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.

BOTTOMS:

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.

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, Iโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜†

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 ๐Ÿ’• x

I have to say, I wore tights under shorts in the late โ€˜80โ€™s (Gen X here), but got out of the way of it once entering the corporate world. Iโ€™m now self employed (artist and โ€” yesโ€” tarot card reader), and have rediscovered myself a bit. You dusted off my memory and Iโ€™ve reintroduced the shorts and tights combo, thank you so much for that! Iโ€™m in my late 40โ€™s, but Iโ€™m with youโ€” wear what you want. I donโ€™t look like Iโ€™m 48, I donโ€™t act like Iโ€™m 48, and I sure as hell donโ€™t dress like Iโ€™m 48.… Read more ยป

Sammi, I would be happy to read you if you ever decide to โ€˜get readโ€™. 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. Itโ€™s all about growth after all, isnโ€™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

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
