Ok, it’s shopping time! Yes rain is still on the forecast (thank you for that one dry day last week, world) but we’ve finally given up on our winter wardrobes. All those dark colours just aren’t cutting it now that the shop windows are full of pastels and crisp cotton.

Yes we know there’s a while until Spring is meteorologically settled, but we’re tired of waiting. And we assume you might be too, which is why this week, we’ve dedicated our entire newsletter to s-h-o-p-p-i-n-g. Hoorah.

So, without further ado, here are our edits. We’ve each picked 5 pieces under £50 and another 5 each under £100. Enjoy!

Zara Checked Dress, £39.99

I’m really feeling these slightly worn in, linen fabrics. While the weather is still iffy, I’d wear this dress over a blush fine-knit jumper and with tights and trainers. This is basically my default formula at the moment.

Mango Poplin Puffed Sleeve Blouse, £25.99

Easy peasy white shirt. Good for every style eventuality.

Topshop Window Checked Slouch Jumpsuit £39

You didn’t think I’d do a fashion roundup and not include a jumpsuit, did you?! Pop a blouse underneath, and some cute flats or trainers, and it’s a perfect smart/ was work outfit.

Cos Belted Pocket Bag, £45

I’m going to jump on the bumbag trend, mainly because of the hands-free situation. This looks sleek and far less expensive than it really is.

Whistles Statement Disc Resin Earring £39

Put these on and bam, you’re accessorised. No fuss needed. And I’ve felt these, they won’t tug on your ear lobes too much either.

Zara Earrings With Fabric Flowers, £15.99

Pink + red + flowers + big earrings (always) = my perfect update for spring.

River Island Cropped Wide Leg Jeans, £40

Topshop is usually my (and Alice’s) go to but I felt in love with RI’s flattering cut and indigo wash on this cropped pair.

H&M Ankle Boots, £34.99

These white ankle boots are already firmly in my wardrobe, ready to pair with all my spring dresses and cropped jeans.

Linen Striped Midi Skirt, £39

Flattering waist, fresh stripes. This is my perfect spring skirt.

New Look Button Front Midi Dress, £27.99

Great cut, beautiful colour – I’ll be pairing with my pink fine knit (below) until the sun comes out. Once it’s warmer, this dress with work with pumps for work or sandals for the weekend.

& Other Stories Silk Blouse, £79

 I love this green colour and the ditsy pink floral print. Wear now until November.

Uterqüe High Heel Court Shoes, £89

I feel these shoes need no explanation. In the basket, boom.

Ganni Mesh Rollneck, £90

Pop this sheer top under a denim shirt, layer it beneath a summery dress, or wear alone. Hugely versatile, and Ganni for less than £100: win, win, win.

ASOS Printed Shoulder Tie Top, £65

I’m always on the look out for statement tops that basically mean I can wear jeans and not look too casual. This one absolutely fits the bill.

Massimo Dutti Linen Skirt, £89.95

This is a complete classic in the making. Easy skirt, with a bit of volume and a nice high waist. I’d wear with a white tee on the weekend, and a soft blouse or stripy knit when I have meetings in the diary.

H&M Patterned Kimono, £69.99

Again, already a wardrobe staple. I love the print, puff sleeves and flattering waist belt. Great on its own, or over jeans on chilly mornings.

& Other Stories Pointed Suede Pumps, £79

Can you tell pink is my favourite colour?! These are low enough for a day rushing between meetings but high enough for a evening outfit lift. LOVE!

Debenhams Pocket Jumper, £79

Fine enough to wear under any of my dresses, pretty enough to work on its own with jeans. Expect to see this on me on repeat all seasons.

& Other Stories Floral Printed Midi Dress, £79

The ultimate spring update. I love everything about this ditsy print yellow dress.

Maje Linen T-Shirt, £90

Yes it’s pricey for a tee. But nobody else makes tees this soft. I promise you’ll keep this forever and wear every day.
