When I tell you I’m excited it’s spring, I really, really mean it.
I’m so relieved that winter is over and spring has sprung, bringing with it some sunshine (I hope) and lighter evenings in April.
I’m possibly the palest I’ve ever been, but it’s not just a tan I’m looking forward to getting. The start of April also means doing the yearly swapover, when I put my winter wardrobe into storage and reintroduce summer dresses, shorts, tanks, sandals and every other warm weather item I own.
The sudden change in season always feels a bit daunting, but I’ve been doing my research this year so I’m not caught out.
I’ve been scouring my Insta feed for inspiration and I’ve certainly found it. Some of my favourite influencers have been dropping killer outfits that I’m planning to recreate in April, so I thought I’d share them with you here.
