sunday style: top picks for spring

I haven’t done a Sunday Style for a few weeks, but I’ve been doing some browsing over the last few days and there are SO MANY lovely things about at the moment. I do way more eBay and charity shopping than I do buying new (partly due to necessity, partly for environmental reasons and partly because I do love a good bargain), but there are a few things that have gone on my wishlist for Spring.
I’ve been searching for flat, gold slingbacks for a few years, after seeing some on someone else (it’s been so long, I can’t even remember where), and now Boden have bought out these gorgeous lovelies. I have no idea where I’d wear them, because I’m way more of a sneakers or chunky shoe type of girl, but I’m trying to go outside my comfort zone a bit with clothes at the moment. Plus, they’d look great with skinnies and a vintage blouse!
I love coloured trousers, and these ones from Fashion Conscience are a really lovely shade for Spring; despite being fair trade, they’re still only £33 in the sale. I love Fashion Conscience; there are some really lovely, unique things on there which are all ethically produced, and don’t have silly price tags either.
New Look are one of the first places I look when I’m looking for something new; they’re really budget-friendly and tend to have some quite quirky bits if you look hard enough. I missed their denim dress last year, but I’m determined not to make the same mistake this year – I love denim, and it’s so simple that it’d be a great base for a fancy necklace. Plus, it’s got pockets!

    Oooohhhhh those grey sneakers are very tasty, I'm loving comfy shoes this spring, I've never really worn trainers outside the gym before, I've been missing out!

    Cardi and trousers please! Is it true that New Look rate quite high in terms of ethical high street options? I'm sure I read it somewhere a while ago but I can't seem to find any other mention of it anywhere? I really hope it is, because I am desperate for some new clothes and I have not seen much secondhand karma coming my way recently!
