Spring is Coming… Here’s What I’m Eyeing

We finally hit the 40 degree mark here in Minnesota. And I can see grass. Like actual swaths of grass not covered by snow.  So naturally my mind is already on flip flops, cut offs, and patios.  I absolutely love the change of seasons, but especially the change from winter to spring.  Everything feels new and exciting.  An opportunity for a fresh start.  And as I look back at the items I pinned this month, that is the overwhelming theme.  Like I’m stepping back out into the world, and I want look and feel amazing.

 

More specifically I’m picking up on five categories in my favorited pieces:

 

Accessories: personally I find accessories hard to do during the cold weather months.  I already have to put on so much other stuff, and I’m usually wearing a coat, and it’s just gray.  But now that I’ve been able to downgrade my outerwear, I’m excited to bring some extra to my outfits.

 

Denim: I’ve always been a denim lover, especially when it comes to jeans.  But denim is really having a moment of late, there’s denim everything.  And while some of it’s probably a short-lived trend (eg, a denim purse or denim shoes), I’m definitely seeing pieces that can have some longevity.

 

It’s wedding season!: I’ve passed that age when the entire summer is spent attending weddings and related festivities, so I’m back to being excited about the opportunity to dress up.  My cousin is getting married this summer, so I’ve definitely had my eye out for something fresh.

 

Tailoring: is still really prevalent, everywhere.  I absolutely adore a mix-and-match look, pairing something really structured (trousers or a blazer) with something relaxed and casual (eg, a standard mens white tank top with trousers, or a blazer with cutoffs).

 

Transitional: if you couldn’t tell, I’m excited that spring is here.  The extra sunshine and warmth definitely has me thinking about ditching the extra layers and soaking up as much vitamin D as possible.

 

So, without further ado, keep scrolling and get excited for the next (at least, hopefully) 6 months of snow-free, green, sunny, warm days!
