Spring feels like it has finally sprung but mainly in blogger-sphere because unlike the real world we can pretend its a couple degrees warmer in our outfit posts...right? All it takes is to don a pair of sunnies, throw on some gladiators and force a 'Spring Smile' through our chattering pearly whites or at least I tried too. 

I'll admit I did throw on a jacket and scarf after taking these snaps because it was a little colder than it looks but the sun was out so I wanted to shred a couple layers for my Spring style outfit. And to be honest my little fury friend over here (also named Honey) is pretty darn warm in her stylish Spring fur coat. I've featured her little face before last Summer and since I was over at my parents I figured she'd add a little twist on my usual outfit posts and I also thought I'd also introduce her to my more recent blog followers! She's a Pomeranian but I like to trim her fur short and lion like, simply because its easier to MAINtain (get it?) and so she looks a little different to the typical ball of fur with four legs and face you see in Google Images. 

I wore this outfit for a casual long walk with the dog. The fedora hat is my favorite accessory that I've purchase this year. I've been wearing it a lot recently as it really pulls an outfit together adding a bohemian twist to a simple outfit and I seem to of grown a love for hats. So much so to add to my collection I'd really like to get my hands on a few more fedora or similar style hats in a khaki, camel and a maybe even a burgundy color (surprise,surprise!) as they'll be great for mid Spring-Summer when the suns blaring (hopefully) and your hair routine is a little more lax. 

I have to admit that horizontal stripes are becoming pretty popular in my wardrobe. I use to stay well away from them and practically ban them from my wardrobe because of their bad fashion reputation. But I've come to realise not only do you need to tell those fashion rules where to go but their 'widening' affect is actually pretty darn useful to balance out your figure and add pattern to a blocked outfit. 

I'd just like to thank my favourite Blogger Dogger (not the dirty kind) for featuring in this post and hopefully in some future ones!
