You know how it goes. You’re procrastinating. You’re scrolling. And then all of a sudden you end up Topshop.com*. It’s happens. Then you have a scroll at the new-in section and you’re in. A blush boiler suit! A black shirt with contrasting stitching! A black strappy low-heel that is everything your minimalist shoe dreams are made of! TOPSHOP SPRING IS INCREDIBLE. Sound the alarm, check your budget, identify the gaps in your capsule and get ready to fill ’em, because I am seriously impressed. Their spring drop is one of the best I’ve ever seen. If you haven’t paid a visit to their website in a while, then let me advise that it’s time to get reacquainted.
If this post sounds gushy, it’s because it is and I am. This spring Topshop* have completely knocked it out the park, so it’s only right that I share my favourite pieces with you from their spring edit, so you too can get swooning and inspired. Here are my top selections from both the clothing and accessories side of things because this shoe selection guys, is everything…
THE SPRING CLOTHING EDIT
There’s a common theme that runs through the Topshop Spring Edit*. Fabrics are light and floaty, colours are a muted palette of the spring classics and the prints are unfussy with not a cliched pastel floral to be seen. Meryl would be proud. IT’S FRESH, and as a lover of classic fits, prints and tones – I’m feeling it. My top, top, top pick though would be this Belted Utility Boiler Suit* (gifted). It’s one of those items where the minute it arrived I was checking online to see if it comes in other colours (they do a cream one* that looks very similar, although not the exact same style). It fits true to size like an absolute glove and the cut is perfectly relaxed and the colour a rusty blush that doesn’t wash out your complexion at all. I am in LOVE.
Other standouts are the Blazer with Linen*; the wooden buttons are a nice touch and a blazer in a pale fabric is a softer way to wear such a structured piece, which would look fab with a pale or bleach denim jean. I’ve always been in the mood for a khaki utility pant for a chicer take on my nineties combat-wearing, Steps-loving days, and these Paperbag Utility Trousers* look like they would fit that bill perfectly. How nice would they look with a black turtleneck tucked into the top? It wouldn’t be a post from me if I didn’t recommend a black shirt, so I’m only doing my duty here, but this Topstitch Shirt* is a different take on the usual, with white contrast stitching and tortoiseshell buttons.

THE SPRING ACCESSORIES EDIT
I am so, so into the new-in accessories section on Topshop* right now; statement bags, low heels (HELLO COMFORT!), blush leather boots and jewellery that offers up a twist on a classic basic. Pick from any or all those of those categories to instantly dial up the nod to spring a notch. For example I’ve been wearing the seashell hoops (gifted) from this Hoop Earring Multi-Pack* with my chunky knits and all black outfits. Spring? Check. And speaking of those blush leather boots, it’s the Henley High Ankle Boots* that I’m talking about. As someone who lacks a boot that’s anything paler than leopard print, I have to say that I’m tempted.
It’s the low heels though that are the star of the show for me. These Strippy Heeled Sandals in Black* (gifted), are a special piece that instantly switch-up an outfit that something that feels more polished and are a win for me. Pair the boiler suit with trainers for a dressed-down look, but pop these on with it and – BAM. If you fancy something a little more daytime and office appropriate then check out these Justify Slingback Court Heels*, which are a very similar shape to a leopard print pair that I picked up last year and have got a surprisingly amount of wear out of. They come in a mustard suede too, but it’s this peachy tan mock croc that have got my finger hovering over ‘add to basket’. Have a scroll and I’m sure your fingertip will be hanging in the same predicament in no time at all.
