There is something so magical about the light in the mediterranean – I’m not sure if it is the sunlight itself or the slightly bleached look every surface appears to have – everywhere you look it feels as if there is a memory of a siesta, or a laughter-filled party or a lazy afternoon lingering . . .

. . . spot the romantic ????!

When it comes to dressing for the mediterranean spring time, over our few days in Barcelona, I took inspiration from the bleached-out colour palette I love so much, and packed layers in neutrals – greys, creams and tans. I’ve had these trousers for years, and they miraculously still sell them in American Apparel – four years on?! Sometimes I find that menswear fits better than ‘mens style’ womenswear, and so I happily opt for the real version. Worn with a turn up at the trouser ankle, my favourite Ash boots and a relaxed grey T Shirt – I could happily wear a version of this outfit for every day of spring.

NB: If you love a staple, good quality T Shirt as much as I do, J.Crew have the perfect grey T. Just sayin’.

I’m wearing hoop earrings with everything right now, they dress up a relaxed outfit, and somehow make a dressier outfit feel more relaxed (magic!) – this ‘Lago Di Como’ style from Georgiana Scott features a beautiful twist detail, it’s an elegant play on a classic.

As for bags – I’m all for a beach-to-city tote come the warmer months. Mine is one I have has since last summer, but this version from Antik Batik will see you through the year ahead, and this one from Star Mela is an affordable option – I bought a Star Mela clutch last year and used it for the whole summer – they’re a great brand!

Oli and I arrived home in England at the end of last week, and we’ve been treated to nothing but sunshine in the UK since! I am sure as this post goes live on Monday it’ll probably have changed, but for the moment I am enjoying a lasting feeling of the mediterranean, even as I am back at my desk . . . !


I’d love to know, what is in your spring wardrobe right now?


Have a wonderful start to your weeks guys!

Love, Monica x
