Morning ladies & happy Sunday.  I think it's safe to say we're all looking forward to Spring & the warmer & brighter days.  After all there's only so long you can get excited about layering up in thermals & chunky knitwear.  I don't know about you but I'm feeling the need to add a few key pieces to my wardrobe to breathe new life into my winter staples during these dark & colder months.

With this in mind today we're going to take a peek at Baukjen's latest drop of new in temptations.  So let's jump straight in & start with this this gorgeous cornflower blue longline jumper that's ideal for layering up whilst injecting an element of Spring.  Pair with leather leggings & trainers, or for a really fresh look a simple white shirt & light denim jean.

My next pick is their black longline cardigan.  Personally I just love longer length cardigans for teaming with skinny jeans or a pair of leather leggings but equally they're also ideal for maximising the use out of maxi dresses & also look lovely when paired with a shorter 'A' line skirt.

Of course we all know stripes are always a good idea & if your wardrobe needs a new Breton then you won't go wrong with adding the above beauty.  A true classic that will definitely soon earn it's keep.  Layer under chunky knitwear for now with the stripes peeking out at the bottom the sleeves, then come Spring layer with a leather biker jacket & jeans & for summer pair with a simple pair of white shorts & straw hat.

Of course a Breton doesn't only come in the classic navy & white duo.  Another ideal wardrobe addiction is a stripe top in another classic combo such as the above black & white tee.  A more fitted cut, this style top is perfect for wearing under a boyfriend blazer & whilst it looks great with denim, black & white it's also a great colour way for teaming with khaki.

As you know I'm all about the wardrobe classics & a white sweatshirt makes a cosy addition.  Timeless in colour & style, not to mention super practical.  Cosy for pairing with loungewear for days at home but equally can dress down some cigarette pants & of course looks great when paired with denim.

Freya FSC Viscose Smock Blouse get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

I don't know about you but I always love looking through new fashion drops to see what's going to catch my eye & inspire me.  As soon as I spotted the above Freya top I was instantly hooked.  Not only do I love the colours, which will work with a lot of our wardrobe neutrals but of course the ruffle detail had me at hello!  Feminine in a timeless way & I absolutely love the pops of red.

my midlife fashion, Baukjen Sadie Organic shirt

Sadie Organic Shirt get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

You may recall that I've previously featured the Sadie Shirt a few months ago & am also lucky enough to have this beauty hanging in my wardrobe.  If like me you love a white shirt & are partial to some extra detailing to elevate an everyday piece that this is for you & the great news is Baukjen have re-released it.  The small puff sleeve detailing is just so pretty with the ruffle collar, which equally looks lovely peeking out from under a crew neck knit, whilst we're experiencing cooler weather.

my midlife fashion, baukjen orally organic cargo pant

Oralie Organic Cargo Pant get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Morning onto trousers now & a couple of great everyday alternatives to denim.  First Baukjen's Oralie Cargo Pant, which I just love.  These cropped fitted cargo pants are perfect paired with a Breton as above but  equally would look great teamed with a blazer for a smart casual feel.

Or if you prefer something a little less tailored then these cropped cargo trousers could be for you.  I just love everything about how they've been styled in the image above.  Equally imagine them paired with a loose fit blazer & trainers or even a denim jacket & ballet pumps.  Definitely a versatile piece that will work as hard & as well as denim does in your wardrobe if you fancy an alternative.

Talking about denim, then if you need a little wardrobe refresh you won't go wrong with a pair of Baukjen's jeans.  Not only are they great quality & cut well, they wash well too.  I love their Boyfriend Jean & have a couple of pairs in my wardrobe.

Or for the ultimate in the trouser department, how gorgeous are these cropped straight leather trousers.  A real wardrobe classic & made from the softest of leathers.

And for pure comfort their Brooklyn Jogger looks perfect & incredibly stylish.

Now if you've been following me for a while you'll know I have a huge weakness for a blazer or two & one of the hardest working ones I own is a black blazer.  I just find it so incredibly easy to dress up or down.  Already I'm imagining the above beauty teamed with Baukjen's Boyfriend Jeans, Easter Cargo Pants & their Faiza Leather Trousers.

my midlife fashion, baukjen lyle vegetable tanned leather biker jacket

Lyle Vegetable Tanned Leather Biker Jacket get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

Another effortless style piece has to be the leather biker jacket & I just love that the above beauty comes in navy.  A colour that's a little softer to wear than harsh black & will soon earn it's keep as it can so easily be teamed with jeans, dresses, maxi skirts, cigarette pants & chinos to name just a few!

my midlife fashion, baukjenm Brigitte leather tote bag

Brigitte Leather Tote Bag get 15% off with code MYMIDLIFE15

For my final pick I just had to feature their Brigitte bag, something I've featured before & loved but now that it's been released in black, my heart has skipped that little bit faster.  A true wardrobe staple that will hold everything, can be used for every occasion & will just get better & better with age & use.

As you can see from my top picks, there's lots of gorgeous new in temptations & I've only featured a fraction of the goodies that Baukjen have launched this month!

As I've mentioned in previous posts I count myself extremely lucky to work so closely with Baukjen as it's such a wonderful brand but also to be able to pick a few pieces to style & whilst it's never an easy decision, this month was trickier than normal.   So many great timeless pieces for achieving that effortless style we all wish to obtain that it makes it incredibly difficult to pick but in the end I decided to go for the pieces that initially caught my eye when I scanned their latest drop - their Freya FSC Viscose Smock BlouseAyla TopEaster Organic Cargo Trousers & The Organic Boyfriend Jean.

Now I mentioned that it was a 'love at first sight' moment as soon as I spotted their Freya Smock Blouse.  Firstly because I love the style, frill detailing & pattern but also because I can see endless possibilities on how to style this beauty.  From pairing with a pair of jeans, styling with a navy maxi skirt to wearing with a pair of white shorts, the possibilities are endless.

A relaxed cut, I'm wearing a the blouse in a UK8 & it fits perfectly.  As you can see I've teamed it with their Boyfriend Jean in Off White but I also plan on pairing it with their Boyfriend Jean in the Pale Indigo wash, which is due to arrive in the post shortly.  If like me you prefer a more straight leg fit & not too loose on the waist/leg then I find it best to size down a size for the perfect fit.

As I mentioned earlier their Ayla Top is a semi-fitted design so I decided to size up a size to a UK10 as for me this just gives a better balance when teamed with skinny jeans.  For their Easter Cargo Trousers, like their Boyfriend Jeans, I again sized down to a UK6, which just gives me more of a tailored relaxed fit that I so love.
