I’m going to let the bright blooming white trees, the faint smell of honeysuckle I caught the other day, and the 72-degree weather distract me from the fact I’ll have to start shaving regularly again, painting my toenails and strategizing about my white, white legs.
Planning my spring wardrobe and the patch of tulips I passed on my walk last Friday, also help lessen the sting of winter being through (I just love it and it’s snowy bug-free self).
In keeping with my style goals for this year, my spring wardrobe leans heavily towards the comfortable.
In fact, my plan revolves around creating as many outfits with my new black and white Nike’s as possible. Torn white jeans and olive green girlfriend chino’s from GAP will certainly help with that. As will easy chambray shirts, camp shirts and a great graphic tee (and yes, I do love my town, thanks for helping me declare it, American Eagle).
What will quickly help to elevate the whole look is some great jewelry. Gold, of course, because even if I don’t end up using self-tanner it will make me feel like I have a glow. The turquoise earrings from The Limited will add the dose of color I need in this sea of neutrals I’ve created. Which, by the way is something else I want to experiment with this spring/summer – color. I tried on a neon green and blue necklace with my army green jacket the other day and the combination was refreshingly cohesive.
I’m hoping this cooler spring weather sticks around for a bit, because my favorite thing about this season is mixing warm weather items with my lighter colored winter-wear. Plus I need an excuse to wear that floral scarf from Banana Republic.
