I hope everyone is enjoying the Spring season! The weather is getting warmer, the flowers are starting to bloom and the Easter break is just around the corner. Once of my favourite things about Spring is transitioning from the heavy layers worn in winter to more light, colourful clothing. This season is the perfect chance for you to do a bit of spring cleaning and to revamp your wardrobe with a new, spring inspired look.
A new season means a completely new wardrobe. Out with the layers and bundling up for the winter and in with the summer hats, sunscreen and lighter clothing! This season provides the perfect inspiration to Spring clean what’s in your wardrobe. This could mean giving away old clothes to charity or loved ones, transforming old items with a bit of arts and crafts or completely revamping your wardrobe by shopping through the Spring collections. It can be hard to part ways with certain items due to sentimental reasons to simply not having to time to spare. However, the new season can often spark the motivation to clean out any unnecessary items in your wardrobe!
