Having been very much in Spring Clean mode for the past few weeks, I've been doing quite well at being ruthless and ridding myself of the things I no longer wear. Some of this has gone to the blog sale, anything tatty or worn or faded from the sunlight has gone to my local clothes charity bin. This means that I've made a little space in the wardrobe room. And promptly filled it back up again, but can you blame me?

The organza dress and the two polka dot jumpers are also from Matalan. The dress is the same fabric as the skirt and I think the weight of it should mean that it hangs really nicely. As for the jumpers, I know that Spring should mean better weather, but for now I seem to be embracing layers. Plus, we had hailstones at the weekend - WTF? I couldn't resist the polka dots due to their textured effects (and more pretty pastel colours). I have a thing about pastels and can't help hearing Meryl Streep's voice in The Devil Wears Prada misquoting "pastels for spring, groundbreaking." But never mind.

|Boden Nancy Dress // Cath Kidston Safari Dress // Great Plains Tuscany Dress|
The Cath Kidston dress was my purchase from their flagship store on my recent London trip. Jazmine kindly invited me to the #180Piccadilly safari party, which I was able to show my face at, because it happened to be the same day I was in the capital for my Queen's Guide presentation. I'd planned to purchase the safari print playsuit (another thing I've been waiting eons for the arrival of) but after trying it on, I decided I liked the dress version better.

Oh wow, quite the essay. I think that's all I have to say about my pretty new things, other than that I can't wait to wear them all.
What have you been buying lately? Are you excited for the arrival of spring?
