March Must Haves...

Style Theory: After a couple of sunny days it feels decidedly Spring-like. New collections are starting to flood the high street, new colours, shapes, perfect pieces to refresh your winter wardrobe without breaking the bank. 

 Here are the pieces on my shopping list at the moment..
Zara Shiny Jacquard Top £29.99

The top on..I bought this as it will be fab for under denim dungarees (see below) I love the puff sleeve detail and the patterned fabric. I will be wearing this in the summer with boyfriend jeans and tan flat strappy sandals... It does come up a little small so this is a medium. 
Zara Pleated Collar Shirt £19.99

A fab little top, quite reasonable and again brilliant for under dungarees. It is quite short, I bought a large I think it comes up on the small side. I will be wearing it with high waist jeans and skirts in the summer.
Zara Lace Top £39.99

I love a cream lacy top, they are fab layered under a chunky slouchy cardigan now and in the summer great with ankle length jeans and white superga's.
Topshop Pink Top £42
I spotted this on Pixie Geldolf at the Topshop Unique LFW show, she is not normally my fashion inspiration but it just looked fab on her, she was wearing a shirt underneath and the pink tone looked beautiful. It is currently winging its way to me, my wardrobe so needs colour and this will brighten it up perfectly.
Topshop Clean Indigo Dungarees £45
Love the look of these dungarees, the clean lines make them look a little more grown up, wear with the pale blue top above and a pair of trainers for a cool look.

Topshop Black Slim Leg Dungarees £48
I have similar black dungarees and wear them non stop, they are sooo comfy and such a useful piece of denim to have in your wardrobe. They look as great with a T-shirt as with a blouse. In general I have found I have had to size up with dungarees and the Topshop reviews all suggest sizing up on this pair.

I fell for this Cos outfit today and will be saving up my pennies for it!
This outfit looked better in real life, I love the length of the trousers, slightly ankle swinger-ish but made of thick material so they look quite striking. They are super high waisted so would look fab with a shirt or blouse tucked in.
Cos Ruched Detail rib-knit top £59
Cos Wide Leg Trousers £79

And finally my dream item, I tried these Gucci shoes on the other day...just out of interest hoping they would look horrible and my 'need' for them would disappear but unfortunately they looked amazing! I completely understand they are a love em or hate pair of shoes..I absolutely love them and they were ridiculously comfortable..a girl can dream!
Selfridges Gucci Marmont Loafers £520
Oooo they are sooo lovely!!

So there is a quick round up of what is on my shopping list, slightly eclectic but I feel I need a little shake up of my wardrobe, I need to inject new shapes and a whole lot of colour..I am so excited about the new Spring styles hitting the shops now...

Which items have caught your eye so far this Spring? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments until next time Frances xxx


  1. Oh my Frances, I adore that first Zara top on you. It's gorgeous! I'm kinda glad that my local Zara is closed for a refurb otherwise I might be bankrupting us! So many gorgeous things! By the way have you seen the gorgeous Topshop Gucci shoe-dupes?! I was watching Ferne & Gok Off the Rails on catch up last night and they showed the shoes on there.....I think they would be right up your street! xx

  2. I love the Cos outfit. I am presenting at a conference in March and would love a new smart outfit for it. I think I might be able to justify this. Much more useful than a new dress that would then sit unworn in the wardrobe.

  3. I've been avoiding stepping into Cos this month, they've had so much lovely stuff that I'm scared I'll dent my credit card but that outfit is super tempting

  4. Do you prefer flip flops or sandals?
