Spring Outfit Idea

 Spring Outfit Idea

A huge thank you to Helen for letting me guest post on her blog to I am really excited to be here, my name is Sarah and I am most often found over at Life in a Break Down, where I blog about a bit of everything – I do hope you enjoy my post on some Spring outfit ideas.

We had a lovely brush with spring just a few weeks ago and I am really hoping that isn't it all for this year. In winter I love to bundle up in warm jumpers and scarves but once spring comes around I really fancy updating my wardrobe with some new looks, it is almost like a new start, all around.

One of my favourite plus size stores Taking Shape, have some wonderfully colourful items in store for this year, but I'm still edging on the darker side with my clothing choices, so I put together this outfit, that while taking on board my love for black, still includes a splash of colour.

Night Owl Leggings - £29
I actually brought these back in the autumn of last year and it doesn't surprise me at all they are still being sold; they offer a completely different style of legging with the beautiful cut out shapes. As well as offering the perfect cover up for those, like me that don't like their legs.

Blooming Gorgeous Tunic - £55
Taking Shape offer a wide range of tunics and actually brought back my love for them as they are so different from my original idea of a straight up and down but baggy shaped top. I love the pop of colour on this one and I get the feeling depending on how you wear it, it could easily go from day to night.

Coloured Plates Necklace - £15
This beautiful necklace is just one of many statement pieces Taking Shape offer, all of which are designed to go perfectly with at least some of the clothes they have on sale. I personally love the shape and colour of this one; I can see it looking perfect with many different outfits.

Uilana Ballet - £55 (on sale for £25)
I've long lusted after these shoes, I tried them on in store in the summer last year and they are so comfortable, perhaps I should finally give in before they run out of stock in my size.

What are you hoping to update your wardrobe with this spring?


  1. I like the pattern on the tunic, looks really lovely and nice and floaty too.

  2. I have brought myself a couple of dresses for Spring so far. I love the pieces you've chosen, I tend to wear black a lot with a splash of colour. Prefect outfit for me. Taking Shape have a fabulous range, I wish they had a store closer to me.
    Thank you Sarah, great guest post.
