5 spring outfits with skirts

Ciao, welcome back to my blog!

Today I am going to share with you 5 spring outfits with skirts.

I honestly can't believe how nice the weather has been lately!

I am so grateful for all the sunshine and the warm temperatures even if I am stuck at home and I can't fully enjoy it outside. It really makes a huge difference in my mood.

The sudden change in weather forced me to do a wardrobe changeover.

I won't post it though: I literally did that a couple of days ago, precisely around 9 pm, in the middle of our Netflix movie night.

The reason was that I was too hot under the heavy winter duvet I kept on the bed because you know, just in case, it won't last...but I couldn't help myself. I was literally sweating.

I decided to pause the movie, I lifted the mattress + the bed slats and I began to dig into the suitcases full of summery stuff that I keep under the bed.

While rummaging with the excuse of only looking for my lightweight duvet, I felt as excited as a child on Christmas morning opening presents: "oh, wait! That's my favourite skirt! I need it!" and "OMG my cotton cardigan, I want to wear it tomorrow!"

I basically started to take out all my summer stuff, piling it on the floor, while my poor boyfriend was sitting half-asleep on his computer chair holding the winter duvet, secretly hating me for not being able to refrain myself and wait until the next morning.

But he knows better: no interrupting allowed while I am possessed by the sacred demon of tidying!

I must admit it was not the right time for a full wardrobe changeover, however, I am very chuffed with my performance: it took only an hour and a half.

I managed to take out all my summer clothes, tidily place them in the wardrobe and neatly fold and put away the very heavy winter clothes. Smashing!

I only kept a couple of my lighter cashmere jumpers/cardigans in case of a very much likely drop in temperature typical of London spring weather.

For those who might be interested to know: I found the spring duvet and we finished the movie in the end. He also received a massive amount of cuddles for being so patient with the crazy person I am.

The following morning, I put together a few cute skirt outfits, as skirts are the pieces of clothing that I missed the most because, as the majority of people do, I tend to wear trousers and jeans more in the colder months.

I also feel that skirts are the spring item for excellence: they are easier to layer compared to dresses.

If it's a bit nippy, I'd just put on a pair of tights and throw on a cardigan and either a trench coat or a leather jacket. Easy peasy!

The items I am wearing here are "old", meaning not available in stores anymore.

If you find my looks inspiring you can recreate them with what you have got already in your wardrobe but if you lack some key pieces, I have linked some similar options from what stores have to offer this season.

I like to keep my outfits simple and practical, hence not too many accessories.

That's the recipe for a great spring outfit for me: simplicity.

A few practical bags, gold jewellery and light makeup (lipstick on at all times!) are more than enough for me.

denim mini skirt outfit

-Outfit n.1:

Take your boyfriend oxford shirt, a denim button-up mini skirt and pair it with a basket bag and trainers. Winning combo: the oxford shirt is currently at its popularity peak and we understand why. It looks sleek and chic at all times, with everything.

It is also a great alternative if the trend denim top + denim bottom juxtaposition is not your cup of tea.

Nothing says "spring" more than a cute basket bag. Mine is from a charity shop (one of my best finds!) but here I will link other alternatives available in online stores now.

polka dot skirt outfit

-Outfit n.2:

Have you been affected by the polka dots fever? Great, me too.

This one is from LY but now there are plenty of options online.

I just want the skirt to be at the centre of the stage, so I won't add any contrast. A black organic cotton t-shirt + black bucket bag and again white trainer is my favourite way of styling it.

For the braves out there, a fun idea to have a quirky look would be to swap the blacktop for a black and white stripy t-shirt!

Khaki mini skirt outfit

-Outfit n.3:

Green is on trend this season and I have always been a big fan of it.

I opted for a button-through utility skirt in a military shade simply paired with an organic cotton white T.

It is definitely worth spending a few more quids investing in good quality fabrics. They will wash much better and they will last for ages while always looking brand new. And what about the amazing comfort and feel of the skin? Unbeatable!

Accessories: again my basket bag with a cool vintage silk scarf as a bow. No brainer styling tip I got from my mum for when you just want to add an extra touch to your super basic look.

Black satin midi skirt outfit

-Outfit n.4:

My black satin skirt is one of the most practical trans-seasonal items I own. I have been wearing it the whole winter and it will be one of my core pieces for spring too. It looks more spring-appropriate with a white t-shirt and a couple of animal print, "tone sur tone" details.

The mini zebra bag I am wearing here is handmade and I bought it in Italy a few years ago but I saw some similar ones in a stall in Old Spitalfields Market recently.

What I love about this look is that it is suitable for every occasion: for work as well as for a drink after and/or the weekend. Whilst stuck at home, this could be an appropriate conference call outfit, maybe with the addition of a pastel blazer on.

While mini skirts can be more challenging, especially in more conservative work environments, midi skirts are amazing for this time of the year and I got a lot of wear out of them in all seasons.

Ditsy print midi skirt outfit

Outfit n.5:

I took inspiration from the French women's style for this romantic vibes look. The flowery skirt with slit is a must-have for Spring and the cable cardigan with a belt to cinch in your waist is the best practical cover-up.

Throw on a trench coat, in case of rain. I love the combination with the small basket bag again and the tan brogues that match the colour of the belt.
