I have spoken briefly about the fact that I have been on a weight loss journey the past year. I have lost almost four stone through eating well and finding a love for regular exercise and have gone from an unhappy size 18 to a work in progress size 12. I feel so much better and above all much more energetic and happy, while I still have a way to go but I am proud of how far I have come. After surviving lockdown dressed in the few pieces of activewear I had purchased, my thoughts turned to a spring wardrobe sort out, it was not long before I realised that nothing I owned last year fit any more. I made it my mission to list all of my clothes that no longer fit on Ebay and this is what has allowed me to be able to have a cheeky splurge on some new pieces for spring which I thought I would share with my readers. If you are looking for some easy to wear, high street pieces then I hope this post brings you some ideas. I hope you love my recent finds as much as I do!
I will start with a classic staple, the denim shirt dress. I shared this dress on my Instagram Stories last week and was inundated with link requests. Super comfy and easy to dress up or down. This beauty is from ASOS and is currently out of stock, I have found an almost identical River Island one that I love, click here. Alternatively this H&M dress is gorgeous. If you would like to keep an eye out for this dress being re- stocked the product code is 1747037.
Another from my ASOS haul, I just know I will wear this lightweight, mint, shirt dress to absolute death! The colour is gorgeous and it looks great either with or without a belt.

Now this is something I would previously not have had the confidence to buy. I absolutely love this puff sleeve, belted playsuit and cant wait to wear it in the summer. The pockets are what sold it to me! I have also worn the belt with other outfits because it is the perfect summer belt. Total bargain and in the sale too! Click here for this beauty.
The hunt for the perfect white blazer was not one without it’s struggles…. and A LOT of returns! This beauty was from H&M and I love the more tailored style. I found with height not being on my side I looked like I was drowning in a lot of blazers.
I am loving these H&M jeans, they are a great colour for spring and the slim fit mom style is more flattering on me than some more baggy style jeans.
Picture the scene, it’s the 21st June, the world has opened up again and Mummy is going out for drinks! I couldn’t not buy this dress! The colour, the fabric, the style, I love it. I teamed it with this metal belt which I know I will wear loads, the perfect way to glam up any outfit. I have just seen H&M have another style in the same fabric, linked here.
I love an item that is multi season and this gorgeous skirt does not disappoint. While spring florals normally only work seasonally, the orange tones mean that this skirt would be a staple teamed with tights, boots and a leather jacket during A/W too. The fit is perfect, nipping in the waist and the light fabric is perfect for summer. I have teamed this with trainers buy can’t wait to crack the sandals out.
Another one I shared on my Instagram Stories last week, this dress is perfect for spring. Slightly thicker in material than the other denim shirt, I love this teamed with my Veja trainers for a casual spring look.
These linen blend dresses were shared to death online last year and it’s no wonder. The perfect casual dresses, they are lightweight, the perfect length and super comfortable. I belted this white dress for a more dressed up look. I also have it in black as seen below. Really rate these and a total bargain.
I picked up this cute striped top from H&M, teamed with jeans or denim shorts this is perfect for bringing a touch of sunshine to any outfit.
I hope you enjoyed this little haul and I will share more pieces as I get them. You can check out other items I have my eye on in the ‘Fashion Finds‘ section of the blog.
