Working in fashion, blogging about fashion and generally being obsessed with all things stylish has a very, VERY negative effect on one's bank account. That 'one' being me.
Add Instagram to the mix and I might as well declare myself bankrupt. 

Luckily for me, I was apparently ahead of the fashion curve and way before they were even a glimmer in SS16's stylish eye I was purchasing the latest must-haves. Bomber jackets, pleated skirts, and off-the-shoulder tops have flooded the high-street leaving little old me content in the knowledge that at the back of my wardrobe I own all of these and have ended up bang. on. trend. mate. BOOM.

However, a little bit of inspiration is always needed - he-lo Pinterest, (another site that makes me want to sell my kidneys for THAT embroidered Gucci bomber) I always turn to the inspo-heavy site for ideas to re-work my clothes which normally ends scissors in hand and a pile of frayed garms.

Anyway, after looking for some ways to style up my now-on-trend items I thought why not share with you lovely lot my top three spring trends of the moment...


THE MIDI SKIRT

Pleated or not, the midi skirt is a great go-to for this weird, inbetweeny spring weather we've been having of late. They look cool with a casual tee tucked in and a lightweight sweater for layering. 
Styling them out with Converse high-tops is a personal favourite but, TBH, this transitional closet staple works with most footwear!

THE BOMBER JACKET

Probably SS16's official cover-up which will continue to reign through to AW16, so buying one of these bad boys now is actually an investment. I am a devout bomber jacket fan owning 7 (4 of which I have had for years), I love the edge they add to an outfit creating an instant injection of cool. So take your cue from the fash pack and make sure a trusty bomber ends up in your wardrobe.

OFF-THE-SHOULDER

Flashing the flesh has never been hotter and right now, more on trend. That clavicle area has always been thought of as super sexy on a woman so whack out that Benefit high-beam tint, gloss up your skin and make sure you're showing some shoulder this season.
