Spring Fashion Essentials♥

Hiya my darlings!!

Hope you have all been VERY WELL!♥

Little bit of an important message here guys… I would LOVE if you took the time out to read it!I have honestly missed you all so so much. I know .. that probably sounds weird right.. how can you miss someone you have never even met/spoken to in person right? I think those of you who blog (probably all of you.. hehe) will know exactly what I mean. The blogging community that exists is such a wonderful thing… I have felt a little bit out of the loop recently. Since starting YouTube.. a lot of my time has gone into working on that. Do not get me wrong lovelies.. I absolutely love my blog so so much… I think I just need to get into the habit of having both that and a YT channel, and giving dedicated time to each of them. This means making sure each blog post/video I put up is something that I am 100% happy with (it always is anyway… I just wanted to mention it as it is something I will NEVER let happen loves), ensuring I take extra time out to read other blogs (still one of my favourite past times EVER), watch other videos.. and work on exciting things with different brands. I know what you are thinking.. it sounds so full on, and on top of working full time/spending time with my family, it is. But to be honest.. I love every second of it. I just have to get myself into a proper routine to ensure I am not neglecting either my blog or YouTube… but you guys know me.. the QUEEN of organisation ey!?

I do not know if some of you may have noticed but I have dropped down to 2 posts week instead of 3, as I like to spend that time on filming/editing my video that goes up! I knew that I just would not have had the time to put up 3 posts AND a YT video every week! For me.. that is a good balance… I actually only put up ONE blog post last week.. and I honestly missed it SO much! I am not even afraid to admit that every spare moment I have is spent on my blog/YT.. whether that is writing/reading/watching/planning… my brain is always buzzing with ideas!

I just wanted to get that off my mind… even though you guys may not have noticed it.. I felt as though I had been neglecting the blogging community.. I have not been as active on reading posts and felt a little zoned out.. but I am SO glad to have found a good balance.. and am SO excited to get on with it and create content that I LOVE!♥

Anyways darlings… I hope my little message made sense! That is what I LOVE about blogging.. you really can just pour your heart out.. and feel 10 times better after ! NOW… should we get on with this post?

Spring Fashion Essentials

So… if you have been keeping up with my blog.. you would have noticed quite a few Spring posts.. including:

Spring Beauty/Makeup Essentials

&

Essential Spring Accessories

Now of course… I had to leave the best (ahem.. in my opinion tehe) until last… and that is of course.. the SPRING FASHION ESSENTIALS!! I have FOUR items that I think are essential in every girl’s wardrobe to get you feeling Spring ready! Have a peek lovelies!♥

Lightweight Stripy Shirts♥

Now.. I don’t know about you… but this is one style that I have been seeing absolutely EVERYWHERE. And I am the BIGGEST fan of it! Stripes is something that I am in love with all year round… and seeing beautiful pastel coloured stripy tops/shirts EVERYWHERE has made me a very happy girly this season! If you saw my previous outfit post.. you would have seen how I styled one of my favourite items I bought recently.. which was obviously a stripy shirt guys!

Trustme darlings.. pick up a couple of button up stripy shirts and over-sized t-shirts … and you are ALL set for the PERFECT, laid back spring outfit! Mine are both from Primark.. so you can bet they were VERY affordable!

Lacy Things♥

Ha.. nothing better than a little but of lace to have you feeling set for Spring? There is just something so perfect about it for this season… and whether you wear a lacy dress or a top with some lace detail.. all will look adorable and ready for Spring time! I have seen SO many tops with lovely lace detail at the bottom.. this style is exactly what you want if you are going for a casual, day time outfit. Pair with some loose jeans and converse for the perfect daytime look.. and swap to a lace midi skirt for the evening!

If you want to see how I style a lacy dress TWO different ways… check out my outfit HERE!

Light Wash Denim Jeans♥

Oh yes.. you read that right.. Saira is recommending a pair of jeans! If you know me and my outfits… you will know I hardly EVER wore jeans… I found them SO uncomfortable to wear! BUT .. I recently picked up a pair in Primark and.. oh goodness lovelies.. they are honestly the most COMFIEST pair EVER! I think I have fallen in love as they are not those awful, stiff, hard-to-move-in style. There are SO many styles of jeans now.. mom jeans, boyfriend jeans, ankle grazers… meaning jeans are much more looser/comfortable.. yet STILL look adorable! I think a perfect pair of ankle grazers with a few rips are PERFECT for this season… and you girlies seriously need to grab yourself a pair!

Thin Knit Cardigans♥

Lets be real here lovelies…Spring in the UK is mostly rainy (and snowy for that matter!), with a few days of sunshine.. so it is still essential to keep some cardigans handy! I don’t actually mind this.. I am a HUGE lover of cardigans.. and I will happily wear them ALL year round! Obviously.. your huge, fur lined cardigans you lived in during the winter will NOT be the perfect addition to your Spring wardrobe.. but stock up on some thin knitted ones.. and you are good to go!! I still prefer them over-sized.. I am not a fan of fitted cardigans.. they are something I usually wear for work though, hehe! You can NOT go wrong with a classic grey one.. I picked up the most PERFECT one in the New Look sale which I CANNOT wait to style for you!

Muted Coloured Scarves♥

I am sure you all know I LIVED in black hijabs in the colder months.. but  thought to myself… Saira.. you cannot do the same thing for Spring! SO… I HAD to pick up some lighter coloured scarves! Of course.. these scarves are perfect to replace your thicker, wooly scarves… and they can add the PERFECT touch to any outfit! I cannot wait to get my hands on a few more.. I have light grey, blue and pink ones on my wishlist!

psst.. you can see me in the glasses.. haha .. the problems of having reflective sunglasses as a prop!

Fancy getting 20% off my phone case? It is from Coconut Lane and you can use my code “glitterglass20”. They have SO many new items too! I will be doing another giveaway with them on my YT channel so keep your eyes out for that!

So my lovelies.. would you like an overview of what my Spring Wardrobe will consist of? Make sure you also let me know about your fashion essentials!

  • Stripy over-sized tops
  • Lightwash denim
  • Lots of greys/creams/whites.. oh yes lovelies.. I am TRYING to steer away from the black! Although I know it will STILL make an appearance!
  • Lacy details

Right darlings.. that concludes my Spring Essentials posts! I have you covered for Beauty, Fashion AND accessories… let me know if you would like me to do these for each season! I would DEFINITELY love to.. as I have VERY MUCH enjoyed these!

I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who reads my blog and supports me.. I want to apologize if any of you have noticed I have not been as active… I am ALL SET to give my blog/you all as much support as you all deserve!!

I cannot WAIT to see you in my next one lovelies! Also.. make sure to check out my YouTube too.. I put up my FIRST VLOG!!

Lots of love,

Saira

  1. Lovely post!! I’m obsessed with stripes at the moment. They’re such a classic style and so easy to wear. Your outfit is gorgeous! You always put so much personality into your posts, it’s so lovely to read :)xx

  2. Aw, that was such a sweet message in the beginning Saira. And I totally understand though! I’ve been kind of going through the same thing too, except I’ve been just super busy with college stuff, applying for jobs/internships, and all that adult stuff. It makes me feel guilty for not being able to keep up with my favorite bloggers and to even blog myself. I love the light wash denim jeans! Something about the light wash makes it easy on the eyes…if that made sense haha. I love the aviators too 🙂

  3. Completely agree it’s difficult to find balance with a blog and YouTube and it’s much better to have less content if it’s means you’re 100% happy with it! I love striped shirts for Spring (and at pretty much any time of the year actually haha!)

  4. That was such a lovely message at the beginning of your post. You’re doing great hun and we’re incredibly proud of you for starting up your YT videos. I’ve enjoyed watching every single one. I love reading your amazing blog posts too and never feel as though you don’t put 100% into everything you do. You go at whatever pace is best for you and other things you have in your life.
    I love wearing stripes, I’ve got a few striped tops and shirts, they are so versatile and look especially good in spring or summer. I love the way you’ve styled your shirt. I love lace dresses and tops too, they’re so pretty 🙂

  5. Stripes are soooo beautiful any season but especially in spring when they are pastel and light & bright! You look stunning in lighter shades hon, even though I do know your fave colour is black! 😀 (you look fab in black, of course!). Lovely spring wardrobe essential, honey!
    As for your schedule, I think it’s great – it’s a nice balance between the blog & YouTube and definitely easy to keep up with, both for you & your readers, including yours truly 🙂
    Love ya girlie!
