71a3yIn case you hadn't already realised, I'm dying to get into spring clothes hence the obsession with 'transition wear'. My latest transitional item is this lovely 'Carly' cardigan dress from French Connection (£70). It's structured enough to work as a dress, and the colour looks so fresh it's perfect for spring. To quote mothers across the country, at the moment there's no way you're wearing that on its own. A long sleeve t-shirt (I'm really getting back into these after chucking all mine out) or shirt will look good under the dress with the belt maintaining a waisted shape. The bottom is long enough to look good with tights or jeans and boots if it's really chilly. The only downside about this dress is the price, I might start dropping hints for my impending birthday!
