So I love grabbing some fashion inspiration as much as the next fashion/beauty blogger, but for me I have one issue when it comes to sharing my outfit ideas: I hate modelling. I'm awkward, I don't know what to do with any part of my body and I'm just generally not the most confident/comfortable girl when it comes to being in front of the camera. So these are my chosen outfits, flatlay style.


So my first Spring outfit is all about the skirt. I love leopard print in general, and I think it can look really pretty when paired with simple, staple pieces. I've paired my Topshop Leopard Print Skirt (they don't offer this particular skirt anymore but you can buy a similar one from Motel Rocks here) with a black high neck vest from H&M and my favourite black patent Zara loafers. I love this outfit combo, it's so simple but you still look put-together and ready to go.


For the ones who value comfort as highly as looking the part. This oversized striped t-shirt dress from H&M is one of my favourites pieces in my wardrobe at the moment. It's ridiculously comfortable, and it's also extremely versatile. If it's a colder Spring day (which is a common occurrence in England that's for sure) then you can add wooly tights and a knitted jumper, or if it's warmer you can ditch the tights and add a bomber jacket. Obviously to go with this relaxed look, I added my well-loved white Converse All Stars.


I'll admit, it's a mission getting me to stray from black, white and grey clothes. They're the colours I feel most comfortable in, and I love how easy they are to work with if I want to add bright shoes or a statement bag, for example. This oversize striped Zara tee is a favourite that I keep going back to, whatever the season. Pair that with my grey River Island Molly Jeans and I love the grey-on-grey look. I'd pair these with either white trainers, like Adidas Originals, or brown loafers.


Now I love to look cute. I'm 5'1, and I enjoy playing up to that. But sometimes, I like to add an edge to my cuteness - a 'who's that girl' kinda vibe, you know? So here I've got: a cute Petite Topshop Skirt, some cute ASOS lace-up pumps, an edgy black New Look Bomber Jacket, and added some colour with an orange-y high neck vest from ASOS.


Now I'm obsessed with these trousers. They're the navy Pinstripe Paperbag Trousers from Topshop. I love the fit of these, they're relaxed and super comfortable, but you can look so smart and mature if you pair them with a blouse. I wear them to business meetings as well as weekend shopping trips, they're that versatile. On this occasion I've dressed them down with a slouchy grey Zara v-neck tee. Tuck in your tee at the front and you've mastered the art of smart-casual.

Which outfit is your favourite?
