After delivering my eldest back to school after yet another 11+ interview this morning, I decided to have a little mooch around M&S. It’s a really beautiful day, and despite the cold, there was a touch of spring in the air, so it felt like a good time to go and try on new season clothes.
I wanted to share my picks with you, because there are some serious gems to be had and when M&S get it right, they sell out quickly.
Love this blouse, perfect with jeans and sandals in the spring. The fringing detail gives it that Isabel Marant inspired edginess and it’s a really flattering shape for those wanting to hide a ‘mum tum’.

Okay, this is not a ‘wow’ top by any stretch of the imagination, but it would be such a useful basic in your wardrobe. I liked the fit and feel and thought it was a bargain for £15.
Style idea – pair with blue dungarees, a denim skirt or blue jeans. (Image via Pinterest)
This skirt is absolutely beautiful. The bad lighting, my socks and weird leg pose are not doing it justice. It also comes in a beautiful shade of grey.
I tried it on with the peplum jumper. It’s very soft and the sleeves are heaven. This is similar to the blush pink and grey jumper that has been all over instagram, but without the high neck. It also comes in grey.
I absolutely love this jumper. The lacing at the back is heaven! And such a good price. The perfect jumper for the Spring.
Now this *may* have come home with me, I love it SO much. (‘Scuse Pouty McPoutface, apparently it’s my concentration face and according to my girls I pout when I do my makeup!)
Styled to perfection, below…
And finally, this dress, which does come with a slip, but I was too lazy to put it on, so it is not as see-through as it is here. I have nothing on underneath.
I am 5’4 and it was the perfect length for me to wear it with trainers.
And guess who is wearing an almost identical dress and looking as beautiful as ever?! One of my favourite style icons, Olivia Palermo… As you can see it would look amazing with heels too! Don’t wait for this one, I predict a sellout…
There we go, my little edit- I hope you’ve seen some bits that get you excited!
