Spring stripes

I've probably mentioned this over and over, but I love spring. We shot these photos at about 7.45pm whilst the sun was starting to set, painting the sky beautiful blues and pinks. Flowers are starting to come to life and I'm not actually freezing my butt off taking outfit pics for once. (Well, not until I took my jacket off...) I always find my mood improves at this time of year, anyone else? I'm pretty content most of the time but as soon as lighter evenings roll in, it makes me such a happy bunny! We took these pics on an evening stroll - I swear Essex/Suffolk never ceases to surprise me with pretty walks, fields and woods that I didn't even know existed. 

I think that's my favourite thing about this time of year - getting back outside again! I turn in to such a hermit over winter. I'm slowly starting to delayer and the chunky knitwear has gone to the back of the wardrobe. To be honest, I always find the transition from winter to spring a tricky one as British weather is so flipping unpredictable - so I always go back to a bomber jacket and cami as my 'safe' option. I stumbled across this cute stripe cami during a food shop in Tesco (I'm very easily distracted) and I'm tempted to go back for the navy version! It has crossover detailing on the back and a slightly oversized fit - perfect for wearing with jeans or tucking in to high waisted denim shorts.

I also picked up this knitted bomber jacket in black and grey (because if it fits, buy it in every colour) and it's the perfect style/texture for this time of year. I always seem to go back to black but it just goes with everything!

P.S. Sorry for the picture quality - Blogger seems to lower the quality when I upload them. Any tips, guys and girls?
