Spring Summer Inspiration

I was in Tesco this morning (just before my back gave up the goat) and was immediately drawn to this subtle geo jersey drape jacket. This is a lovely weight of jersey and nicely styled with the blush pink here. Kind of wishing I bought it now but I've done too much damage online over the past week (blog post to follow on that).
This grey top is caught my eye also. It has an asymmetrical front hem. A lovely alternative to black for a night out.
These patent heels are a great neutral colour too:
Finishing up with a couple of outfits from this week....I have really tried to make an effort, despite the building site of a house :) First up, some old favourites on Monday - a milder day so I didn't need a coat:
Cape - Vero Moda (not very similar but the best I could find!)
Jeans - Replay
Burgundy Boots - Bertie (similar)
Burgundy Jumper - Next (similar)
Checked Scarf - SGS Shop (similar)
(all old items)

And yesterday some layering outside my new red door...

Navy Jumper - Vero Moda at Call Me Pretty Boutique - called Black Iris but it's definitely proper navy!
Jeans - Replay as before
Breton - Boden
Long Brown (in need of a polish) Boots - Hobbs (past season - similar here & here)

Keep safe in the snow everyone - back on Friday with a slightly different kind of blog post...



  1. I'm so over winter and looking forward to spring and wearing less layers. Please tell me it will happen soon. You've picked out some really lovely pieces here. Do I detect more patterns in your wardrobe this year? X

  2. Hope your back is better soon!
    I'm wearing one of my Boden bretons now :)

  3. Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that your back is playing up again. Really hope that it gets sorted soon.
    Some great picks - I'm now feeling inspired to pop along to Tesco. Absolutely LOVE that yellow scarf xx

    I hope your back starts to behave itself again soon! I do sympathise with the house renos - I found it exhausting, but it really is worth it in the end! Get lots of rest . Lots of love to you! X

  5. ooh i've just rediscovered oasis but never even thought of looking on their website...shall look tonight as it's so hard getting to the shops with the boys...let alone trying anything on!!
    thanks avril x


  6. Can't believe you are having back trouble again Avril, I really hope it gets better soon. Love the floral top with the stripe sleeves....that is so gorgeous for Spring which can't come soon enough for me! Oasis have some fab bits.....I must check them out a bit more often you have shown us some gems here! xx

  7. Loving the leopard print bag and those glittery pumps. Still looking immaculately stylish as always Avril despite in the middle of house renovations, how do you do it?!xxxx

  8. Hope your back is on the mend, Avril. I feel for you. I love looking forward to the next season and deciding what I might be wearing. Love those Tesco shoes! Lynne xx

  9. Oh hurry up Spring!! I hope you are feeling better Avril? I love your red door! Great Spring picks! x

  10. I picked up that grey top in Tesco just last week - it feels SO good (nice and weighty). I didn't spot those beautiful grey heels though or the yellow scarf!!

  11. Looking good! I love a breton, I have far too any in my wardrobe....always room for another though ;)
