Ne'er Cast A Clout Till May Is Out

#AD - Paid Collaboration with VeryUk

You've heard that saying before haven't you? "Ne'er cast a clout till May is out". Well it basically means don't discard your warm clothing till May is out. Well folks, May is more or less out and I've discarded the warm clothing with my VeryUK picks this month. A rebel I am indeed.

I started off with the most gorgeous boho blouse from Maison Scotch. I liked the French girl vibes of this pretty piece - the perfect shade of green with the dainty paisley print, topped off with the perfect front tie and it even came accessorised with the cutest little necklace. I was in love. See that smug little smirk. That's a smug little smirk that says this blouse is good.

I'm going to be honest and say that Maison Scotch pieces are not always the cheapest on the block but they are certainly made with a little more attention to detail and the fabrics and cut are usually just that little bit different. I've had pieces in the past and was so surprised when one of the first tops I bought many years ago came with a little necklace. I was just as delighted to find that they still continue to do this now and that Maison Scotch is stocked on Very.

I put together a little compilation of items (some similar to items I already own) which would work well with the blouse to show it's versatility. It's certainly a dress up, dress down piece which can take you through a day's shopping wearing through to an easy evening out.

The second item which people may have seen me wearing on Instagram is this rather eye catching Whistles sky blue spotty skirt. 

It's one of those items which you love the look of but you never quite know what the wearing is like. I already have a wrap skirt in a very similar style and the first time I wore it, I ended up buying a pair of leggings to put on underneath the skirt whilst I was walking around as I was so busy clutching on to my skirt desperate not to reveal too much. But this Whistles skirt - it's brilliant!

As you can see from the pics, my modesty is very much preserved due to the way the inner panel goes a good way round. There's no scrimping on fabric on this skirt. And the colour just epitomises summer and is just an easy breezy piece to wear,

And last but not least of my picks - I chose the Poppy sandals by Clarks. 

I may not have liked their school shoes in my school years but they do some good shoes for adults - shoes you can actually last all day in. 

The Poppy sandals have a small platform so good for those who want a sandal not totally flat to the ground and with a little more support. The ankle strap hits the leg at a flattering point as I find the ones which are lower down cut my legs off visually more than the ones that hit at the slimmest point of the ankle.

And as you can see they work equally well with trousers, dresses and skirts - and my other Very picks. :)
