There are signs starting to appear that hint that spring may well be on its way soon.
And while I actually quite like winter with its warm coats and cosy hats I am looking forward to being able to go out without quite so many layers on. I’m also looking forward to shuffling things around in my wardrobe and rediscovering my dresses and other bits of spring/summer clothing.
This spring I’ll have some really lovely new pieces to add to the mix after the lovely people at JD Williams got in touch and asked if I would like to review some clothing from their website.
There’s a huge range of pieces to choose from on the JD Williams site, from tops to dresses to boots to accessories. I spent ages browsing all the options and could quite happily have picked out a completely new wardrobe full of clothes, there were so many items that I liked the look of.
In the end though I chose some pieces to put together a lovely new outfit for spring that still feels very ‘me’ and that I can use to mix and match with bits that I have in my wardrobe to make lots of other new looks with too.
The first item I picked out was this white and navy striped top.
I’m a big fan of striped tops, and I have quite a few in my wardrobe already because they are just so easy to wear. I really love this one with the little pop of pink on the sleeves just to add that bit of interest and to break up the stripes a bit.
The top is light-weight and really comfy to wear and I think it looks great with jeans. I’ll also be able to wear it with a denim skirt when the weather warms up a bit.
I generally wear size 12 clothes, so that was the size I got this top in. It is a slightly loose fit which I really love as it’s so comfortable and gives it a more relaxed feel.
I also picked out some lovely dark wash jeans which are another wardrobe staple. I really love the colour of these and fit is lovely too.
To complete the look and add another layer on spring days when it’s still a bit chilly out I chose this blush boyfriend cardigan.
I absolutely love the colour of this cardigan; it’s so pretty. I think it works really well over the striped top but will also be great layered over a few dresses that I already have in my wardrobe. It’s part of JD Williams’ capsule range and I think it would be a great addition to a capsule wardrobe, creating a few different looks when it’s mixed with different pieces.
To complete my new spring look I picked out some gorgeous brown boots.
These are from the heavenly feet range and they are so comfortable to wear. I’ve worn them on several walks and days out with the children and they haven’t rubbed at all and have generally just felt really nice to wear.
They have a memory foam insock that basically moulds to the shape of your feet when you wear them which makes them so comfortable and also helps to relieve pressure points. They then recover their shape after you take them off so they don’t get worn down.
I’ve already had compliments on these gorgeous boots and I can see me wearing them all the time, with all sorts of outfits. They’re mid-height boots so look great with jeans tucked into them, but I think they’d also look good with dresses on those in-between weather days.
What I really love about all the pieces that I picked out is that they work really well together as an outfit but each item can also be mixed and matched with other pieces already in my wardrobe.
I’ve been really impressed with the quality of everything, and I found the JD Williams website really nice to use too. I love that they have such a wide range to choose from, and that you can find brands on the site like Joe Browns and Oasis as well as their own pieces.
Now I’m off to see what other new looks I can create for spring with my new wardrobe staples mixed with the clothes I already have tucked away in the wardrobe.
Disclosure: I was sent these items from JD Williams for the purpose of this review, but all thoughts, words and photos are my own.
