Spring has Sprung at Yard

Yes, it might be cold and wet outside, but at Yard we have been making room for the new spring collection, which is arriving daily! I'm in love with most of the range, which features trends including bold colours, quirky prints and textured fabrics. It is very hard to pick my favourites, but here are my top five must-haves to update your wardrobe:

1. Summer Mozart Ribbed jumper, French Connection, £49

This French Connection jumper makes me feel like it's spring already and is the perfect trans-seasonal investment. Wear it now with black jeans and a white shirt underneath or later with white jeans. And at this price I think this will sell out very quickly!

2. Sahara Wave Texture Dress, French Connection, £110

Another fabulous transitional item, this tunic dress can be worn now with tights and ankle boots or heels and will look fantastic going into summer with tanned legs and pumps. Featuring an animal inspired print with a textured wave in the material and lovely lace detailing at the back. 

3. La Parisienne Ocean Jeans, Maison Scotch

My favourite brand of jeans is updated in a sun-bleached soft blue colour with a faintly distressed feel. Such a refreshing change from dark denim and basically the perfect jeans to take you through spring and summer. 

4. Printed blazer, Maison Scotch

The comfort of a cardigan but the look of a blazer, this slim fitting slub jersey jacket has an all over feather print. I would wear this with the jeans above and a simple tee.

5. Alanis shirt, Twist & Tango

I love the print on this silky blouse. It could be dressed up for work or would look equally fab worn loose with black jeans and heels.

The spring collection at Yard is still coming in, so I will report back over the coming weeks with more of my favourites!
