Stepping into Spring. Where are you Spring? I’m ready and waiting! I think I’ve said goodbye to Winter already, I’m not going to lie. Done, goodbye, see ya later Felicia! I’m just not here for it. Every weekend there’s a new weather warning? Like what is it, the rain the wind. Storm Dennis this weekend. I just cannot wait to feel the sun on my skin, to feel the crisp air and the smell of fresh cut grass and most importantly the fashion!
Although I love layering up there is no better feeling than not having to wear tights, are you with me on this one? To not worry about adding the scarf, the hat, packing the gloves and of course to not getting the Brolly in and out, only for it to turn inside out! So this week I want to bring you a couple of looks that are perfect for Spring from Evans clothing. I’ve written about Evans before and how much I’ve loved re-discovering them and their on trend style. So when they reached out and asked if I’d like to pick some items to be gifted I couldn’t wait to choose!
I went for two looks, both very me and both perfect for dressing up and dressing down, and of course both perfect for that transitional period between Winter to Spring, and then Spring to Summer. First up was this gorgeous ditsy polka dot shirt dress I’m such a massive fan of a shirt dress, and this colour was perfect for Galentines! I wore it to work and then straight out afterwards and it was comfortable to wear all day. The fabric is really lightweight but still warm enough to wear in this chilly weather! I love the print as it’s colourful but not too much for day to day. I paired it with a pair of ankle boots but it could also be dressed right down with a pair of trainers, or even glammed right up with a pair of block heels. I love the length of this dress, it really is a great cut as it’s long enough and comfortable enough to run after the little one and stay covered but also I love that you can undo a few cheeky buttons to show off a little skin for date night! Either at the legs or bust!
This dress is available in a size 14-32 so a really good plus size range. I received mine in a size 18 and it was a perfect fit! No pulling at the bust and plenty of sleeve room for movement, no restrictions at all! I’ve actually worn this dress so many times since I received it last week as I just love it so much! I also paired it with this gorgeous rust satin knot headband, also gifted from Evans. Headbands are going no where and I think they are a great accessory for any occasion and this one from Evans is so comfortable on the head, as with some headbands I find they can really dig in after long wear, but this was lovely and no pain or pressure after wearing all day and night! The rust colour also sits perfectly with the dress, so I added a waist belt (it does come with a matching fabric belt but for me I wanted more of a statement belt) a pair of earrings I’m ready to go!
But what about those blustery days? The ones where it isn’t raining but it’s still so cold! Have no fear the Blush one button coat is here! Also gifted from Evans and also another true to size perfect fit. I received mine again in a size 18 and it was so roomy! Great for adding layers underneath. This one runs from a size 14-32 again so a great size range. The fabric is so soft and I’m really feeling the tailored look! So smart for at the office or for brunch with the girls, but also a really great option for pairing with jeans and trainers for a more casual look. Also pockets? Who doesn’t love pockets in a coat?!? This whole colour combo of this outfit I am totally here for. Blush is such a perfect colour for Spring/Summer and this outfit fits together beautifully. Such a romantic vibe for every day and all very versatile pieces that are great when styled all together, or on their own as part of any outfit.
The second look I went for was my style through and through. I felt so confident in this dress and honestly it’s because I felt amazing! This is 100% my go to look for every occasion and every day. Trip to the park? This dress. Into the office? This dress. Out for dinner? This dress. So what am I banging on about, well it’s the Black floral frill hem dress. It’s a beauty and she’s selling fast! This is such a fab dress for Spring, you can roll the sleeves up, unbutton it a little, and all I can imagine is as the days start to get a little warmer, is pairing it with a pair of platform sandals and a pair of big sunglasses! You feeling those vibes too? Well for now it’s a tad cold for that! So I’ve paired it with my favourite leather look jacket, again a belt to accentuate my waist and my comfiest pair of trainers. I actually wore this on our family walk and park run and again no restrictions and was such a great fit! I received mine in size 18 and again this dress runs from a size 14-32.
I’m such a massive fan of a midi dress the lengh is perfect and I also love the print! The colours again are just so beautiful and I’ve matched it with another statement headband also gifted from Evans. Blue is such a fab colour that is great for all year round and honestly this is a look you will see me in most weekends at the park! Although you may even see me on date night in it, blue clutch bag, cheeky pair of stilettos, an added red lip and off I go!
These two looks as I said before are fantastic for this time of year. You can really switch up the look just by adding accessories and taking your own twist on it! So what do you think? Shall I do a day to night look book blog featuring these two? Or would you like to see more day to day options? All I can say is Evans has you sorted for this season. With a great plus size size range and so many on trend looks to choose from you really are spoilt for choice! If you’d like to take a browse at any of the items mentioned in this blog then I’ve linked them under each picture today! Are you ready to step into Spring with Evans? X
