Springing Up Spring

Springing Up Spring

 

I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m sure ready for Spring to get here. Inevitably, the weather warm-up means challenging wardrobe decisions. It sometimes takes a lot of effort to resist the urge to dress in anything that says “It’s warm outside!” I am a natural freeze baby, so I am one of those people that carries a sweater in my purse at all times…even when it’s an 85 degree July day (air conditioning, people!) My cool blood temp is probably also what reminds me to still wear long sleeves, closed toed shoes, or layers when the weather starts to break in the Spring because I know that if I get too warm-weather excited, I’ll regret it within the next couple days when I wake up with an “I told you so” cold.
 Above, I put together what I would consider to be a pre-Spring appropriate outfit. It brings out those expected petal shades, but the long sleeves, jeans, and booties still keep in the heat for when the sun goes down and the air turns cool again.

Mois de L’amour

Mois de L'amour

It’s nearing Valentine’s day, so she opted to wear her red Diane Von Ferstenburg dress to bask in the mood of the approaching holiday, although Paris is always in the mood. She clasps her gold Michael Kors chain link watch and throws on a dainty long gold necklace. She walks to her vanity to put on a little bit of make-up…easy on the eyeliner and light on the blush since she decided to wear a bold red lip with her ensemble. She then throws her hair up in a messy sort of coif and secures it with a few bobby pins. She springs out of her chair to find the black leather ankle strap heels from her rather disoriented closet, all the while her cat Georgie is following her every move, trying to get her attention. Noticing Georgie while grabbing her shoes, she says “Bien, Georgie” and wanders into the kitchen to find the hungry little feline a snack. Georgie seems pleased with the whitefish scraps leftover from last night’s dinner.

Finally, she’s ready to head to the farmer’s market to pick up some fresh flowers and produce before she meets her beau for an exciting date at a wonderful new restaurant they’ve been aching to try. She grabs her vintage mink coat, and black leather tote-it’s still pretty chilly in February, and a tote is a good size to hold the flowers and produce, plus whatever else catches her fancy at the farmer’s market on this brisk February day in the city of lights.

Now that it’s nearing the later part of August, I’ve naturally started thinking about
Fall wardrobe additions.  These are some things I’ve had my eye on for the upcoming
season.  Most are essentially just basics-but aren’t great basics the foundation of a great
wardrobe?
What’s on your fall wish list??

It’s always so hard to decide what to wear this time of year.  It’s that time where the weather is starting to transition into fall…with warm days and cold nights.  Which means it’s a little too warm for jeans and a sweater, but a little too cold for shorts and a tank.  So what do you wear??  It’s time to compromise.  A sweater and shorts…a tank and jeans…a good rule of thumb I usually go by is making sure either my legs or arms will be warm when it’s cool.  That way, I’m not turning purple and begging for a hot cup of tea.

A Fall Classic

Fall is indeed my favorite fashion season.  Don’t get me wrong, Spring and Summer also have their fair share of cute clothes…but I’m a layering kinda girl.  I like my layers.  Plus, I’m a serious freeze baby.  As I’ve said before, jackets are probably (one of) my favorite ‘fashion things’ about fall.  Really, sometimes all you need is a good jacket.  Great fit, great look- great style.  Which also includes those classics–like a black leather (or faux leather, whichever your preference) jacket.

Mine’s a moto jacket with an asymetrical zip that I found from Victoria’s Secret.  I find that they’re best if you want to wear it as an outerwear jacket, or as just a jacket that gives off the same effect as a blazer.

Worn with Michael Kors button up…(obviously the buttons are the coolest part of this basic white button up).  Earrings are Betsey Johnson.  Scarf is Preston and York.
