Springtime Lovelies

It's official! Spring is here! (Okay, in Queensland its kinda felt like Spring for a while due to an unusually hot winter, but now it's officially Spring, so there's, erm, a bit of a difference). Sunny days, blooming flowers, buzzing bees and cute baby ducklings abound in the prettiest of all seasons.

In celebration of all this sunshine and cuteness I've put together a selection of a few of my favourite things for Spring (and no, they don't include raindrops on roses or whiskers on kittens).


1. Spring means lots of colour, and these hand woven vases by Crayon Chick have just the perfect amount of neon pop. The natural jute ensures they will fit in perfectly with your existing decor while adding a much needed dose of Springtime colour. $38.

2. *Shameless shop plug* These pretty little love bird hook magnets by OMM Design will add some Springtime cuteness to your fridge or magnetic pinboard. Use them to hang necklaces, lanyards and other random bits of pretty-ness on. Plus they're designed in Sweden and they always make cool stuff don't they? $11.

3. This Down to the Woods Dress from Maiocchi's new Spring collection is my pick for frolicking through wildflowers in. (And don't you just love the word frolic? It conjures up the happiest feelings ever). The Scandi-inspired print and natural hues make this one a winner that you'll want to wear year-round. And did I mention they go up to a size 18 in all their clothes and they're all made locally? Winning! $289.

4. If you're in need of some quirky and original home wares look no further than Stampel's range of handmade wooden vessels, wall hangings and accessories! With spray painted vases inspired by 80's surfboard designs, pretty polka dotted vessels, necklaces adorned with geometric designs and macrame plant hangers, Stampel brings a cool modern edge to retro aesthetics. $45-$120.

5. This Polka Dots and Moonbeams silk scarf by Emily Green (and isn't that the best name for a scarf ever?) is the epitome of Spring with its pastel apricot base and multicoloured gelato spots. Perfect for those days when Winter's chill still hasn't quite left the air. $129.

6. Melbourne screen printer extraordinaires Harvest Textiles create some of the yummiest prints around and this Melting Ice Cream Wrist Bag is the case-in-point. Each bag is different due to the made-by-hand screen printing process, which I think makes them even more special. And nothing quite evokes a Springtime feeling more than the thought of strolling around town whilst toting your new wrist bag and eating an ice cream cone, does it? $60.

7. This Woodland Flower Wreath by Whichgoose is just the thing to wear with your favourite flowy Springtime dress for that aforementioned flower-field-frolicking. This would also make the prettiest hair accessory for the Spring bride, no? $70.


What do you love about Spring? Are there any clothes or accessories you're looking forward to wearing (or buying!) now that the Winter months are behind us?
