I am so excited for Spring!

I love everything about it, the colors, the smells, the sounds…

…and the fact that it is time to clean up those closets and put away the winter grays.

I am sharing today a few inspirational outfits for this coming season.

I hope you like them!

 

Early Spring

The first few weeks of Spring can be a little bit cool in the same way that the first weeks of Fall can be a little bit warm.

I wouldn’t put away yet some basic pieces such as leather or denim jackets. 

However we can start wearing lighter weight tops that will be part of our Spring-Summer wardrobe.

The “Run Around Town” Look

 

Yesterday I was wearing something similar to this outfit.

This is the perfect look to get in and out of the car, run errands, or take the kids to the park.

I am a cardigan lover. I have pretty much every color of cardigans you can imagine.

They are perfect for Spring, they give a punch of color to any outfit and they are easy to mix and match.

Wedges and jute totes give an outfit and organic and simple look,

while the coral and mint tones with flower accessories add some chic feeling to the outfit.

Fresh, feminine and comfortable…

Love it!

The Sea Side Look

This is another HUGE trend this year.

As much as I love it, one needs to be careful to not look as a sailor from the 1940s or as a banner from the 4th of July.

To stay away from that I chose to show you how you can combine colors to achieve a chic look.

Instead of navy and red I used navy and coral, or corals and yellows.

These three colors work wonders together.

They are opposites in the color wheel and are cousins of the primary colors therefore they complement each other perfectly.

Accessories

 

For me accessories are the frosting on a cake.

You can have any plain outfit and make it EXTRAORDINARY with accessories.

If you are afraid of color, accessories are a great way to start implementing them in your wardrobe.

Start with shoes, belts and bags and before you know the fear will be gone!

Layers

Bring interest through layering fabrics.

Light weight cardigans and tank tops,  spring scarfs and fabric accessories for your clothing and hair are a great way to do this!

 When we layer we need to make sure to use materials that are not bulky so they don’t add volume to our bodies.

I really believe that what makes a person gorgeous is to be themselves, is to bring the true YOU out.

I made this free printable to illustrate just that…

and beYOUtiful!

 

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
