Dressing for inbetween seasons

Dressing for in-between the seasons can be tricky. Today and yesterday in London have both felt very much like spring is on it's way and this poses that oh-so-awkward dilemma of trying to figure out what is appropriate to wear. After weeks of shivering on the train, in the office and even on the tube we're now feeling the warmth of Spring and all of a sudden those faux fur coats we've been wrapped in feel very inappropriate. Not only does this transition mean often buying a new wardrobe, but drawing inspiration for a whole new season of clothes - which sometimes can be overwhelming and exhausting, especially with all the different prints and trends happening this season in particular.

FashionistA decided to venture out onto the high street to see what was out there to be accessorized up and thrown on ready for this awkward in between season time. We spotted this absolute gem from H&M and thought it was perfect for adding a touch of spring into our wardrobes. Best of all it was at the amazing wallet busting price of just £7.99. Fab. If the weather stays like this, we're definitely planning a little weekend London venture - probably to a bistro cafe for lunch on the cobbles at Covent Garden - and we don't want to look too dressy but want to feel weather appropriate. This cotton dress seems perfect for it:

Winter meant grungy, dark nails and this is the first opportunity for us to get out of the rut and get into a far more appropriate shade for this weather. We've chosen Winters Day, ironically, which complements the dress perfectly but is a gorgeous two-tone, so shimmers and sparkles in the light, previously un-seen and unappreciated in Winter! This shade is ideal because although you may feel like getting out the brightest shade you own, it's not quite ready for it yet. 

Finish the whole look with a touch of Blushing Coral on the cheeks and Coral Couture Plumping Lip Glaze on the lips. We think we've nailed the in between season style - even if we do say so ourselves!

Winters Night - £5 from Superdrug
Blushing Coral - £4 from Superdrug
Coral Couture Lip Glaze - £6 from Superdrug

What do you think of this look? How do you dress for in between seasons?
