Images via Ensembles Spring 2012 No 1 by La Garconne, Topshop Boutique and screenshots from Marni x H&M campaign by Sofia Coppola.
It may still be baltic outside but that hasn't stopped me from dreaming of spring days where bare legs, loafers and easy cotton pieces are all you need. As always I am drawn to simple, slightly preppy basics with a twist - a polo shirt dress in neon, oversized pinafores, silky slips, ankle socks and tailored linen trousers. La Garconne and Topshop Boutique are both very very good at this kind of aesthetic and this season is no exception. The mood of Sofia Coppola's ad campaign for Marni x H&M is also perfect - all long, hot, lazy days and lush prints.
