Goodbye Spring, Hello Summer! 6 Favourite Spring Looks, 2018.

It's officially summer!
Okay, not really, but early June always feels like summer to me and the weather has been playing ball, which is unusual for Scotland.

I feel like summer has arrived (albeit temporarily) and I'm embracing it!

Today is the perfect time for me to pick my favourite Spring outfits of 2018.
{See last year's HERE.}

These 'picks' are not based on post popularity, or views.
They are just the outfits I enjoyed wearing the most.

{Click through the links in the titles to read the full posts}

Please feel free to disagree with my choices!
I would love to hear your opinion.

Yellow Trousers and a Blue Band Jacket | Over 40 Fashion | Fake Fabulous

1. Blue and Yellow | Brand Chat  

This outfit sums up all the things I love about modern fashion.
Colour, quirkiness and comfort.

However, I do have a few things to say in this post about some of our favourite brands letting us down when it comes to quality.
Pop over and have your say on it too!

Dungarees, red lips and stripes | Over 40 Fashion | Fake Fabulous

2. Wearing Dungarees, over 40.

I love my dungarees and don't care if anyone thinks I'm too old... or 'too' anything!
They're the perfect having-a-lazy-day-but-still-want-to-look-cool outfit choice.

Do you agree?

Wear what you want to a wedding? | Over 40 Fashion | Fake Fabulous

3. Wearing what you want to a Wedding, unconventional Bride!

Is this outfit perfect to wear to a wedding?
Or, totally inappropriate?!

Would you wear ivory... or even white?
What about a suit?

What about if you were the Bride??

Come and share your opinion on all things wedding-etiquette related.

Grey Cashmere culottes and a blue silk tunic | Over 40 Fashion | Fake Fabulous

4. Spaced out and completely comfy!

This outfit is my favourite of the season!
PJ-level comfort with delicious fabrics.
My idea of the perfect look.

Do you agree?

Tea blouse and mom jeans | Over 40 Fashion | Fake Fabulous

5. Styling a tea blouse over 40.

Tea blouses and 'mom' jeans are not just for the cool twenty-somethings.
Remember that grown-up girls can wear anything they want!

Statement Tee and bold culottes | Over 40 Fashion | Fake Fabulous

6. Sarcastic? NEVER!

This outfit was a close second choice for me!
Easy to wear, but bold, cheeky and striking.

There's something quite confidence boosting about wearing a statement Tee... plus, it's a great conversation starter!

Please let me know your thoughts on my picks in the comments.

I love hearing your opinion!



  1. Love the last two the most. However you always look fab. Today also finally felt like summer has really arrived here on the Black Sea. No more jeans during the day - just getting too hot. Perfect weather right now. :) yay. Happy summer! Lise

    1. Thats great Lise... enjoy the perfect weather (before it gets too hot??)
      Jeans are always close to hand here in Scotland... and a brolly!!! :o)

  2. My favourites are looks 1, 3 and 6! I'd personally wear those outfits myself (making little tweaks to suit my hijabi self, of course), but once I find a pair of dungarees that suit me I'd totally throw a striped top underneath just like you did too.

    Can't wait to see the outfits you come up with in summer soon <3

    xo, Liyana | Affordorable

    1. I could see you in all three Liyana... just a wee sleeve, scarf and sock added here and there!
      You are so innately 'cool' so I am hugely flattered (and pretty chuffed!!) that you would wear any of my outfits.... shucks, I'm blushing!

  3. You totally rock your culottes, and they look so comfy and cool! amazing!
    And my favorite is the wedding outfit, because I think you look particularly fabulous, and it was pretty inspiring for me! Gorgeous!
    Spring is being warmer in the north of europe than here in Spain. And it's still chilly and rainy!. Crazy spring!!

    1. That's bonkers Monica... I hope the sun comes back for July. We are heading over your way (well, Menorca anyway) for the first time in 13 years!
      An overdue break and some vitamin D on the menu!! XXX

  4. Number 6 is my absolute favourite, I love the feistiness of it! And it is nice inspiration for styling the oft-awkward culottes...

    1. Oh Thank you so much Rozanne.
      Culottes are tricky, aren't they?
      I hated them at first and failed in their styling.
      Now I love them!
      Strange eh? Maybe the longer length is easier?
      I don't know but I'm so pleased to have inspired you (made my day!).
