Well … I know you just could not get enough of Cassie’s covetous style so I am pleased to say we have one final drop from her. Oh how I wish this friend still lived close by … but I know she is well loved and cared for in her hometown. Much love dear friend …
Floral print jackets –
If the printed pant trend isn’t quite where you’re most happy, but you still want to embrace the spring fashion of bright & bold flowery prints – may I suggest opting for the jacket version instead. Mixed with a cute striped tee & slouchy boyfriend short during the day, sparkly singlet & slim jeans in the evening. Done!
Wide-legged Pant -
Strip-off those skin-tight jeans & leggings, & let your legs breathe. Aaahhh…. Doesn’t that feel good? Paired with a chunky wedge & comfy tee, you’ll be one classy & comfortable lady about town. I have spotted quite a lot in white (scary, I know) but other spring colors work too, along with navy. High-waisted, or regular, I’ve seen both – the choice is yours!
Coral coloured, Blue coloured.
Cropped sweater -
This is one of my all-time favorite essentials to splurge on this Spring. A light-weight, open knit sweater that cuts-off around your mid-riff or just above the hips – keeping the cooler spring evening air at bay, without feeling heavy or over-dressed. It’s a gem of a piece.
It is a teeny-tiny fine line between colorful fun & 80’s horror. I believe it’s all about moderation – making sure the euro bright you add to your outfit isn’t joining a collage of other fluro items. A splash of neon is one sure way to shake-off the last dregs of winter & say hello to Spring!
Belt, Nails, Bag.
Mix ‘n Match –
Last on the list is not an individual item but a tip – Mix. It. Up! One of the joys of this current season is the lack of rules for patterns, colors, fabrics & how you mash them all together. Have fun mixing-in vintage scarves, bright clutches, leopard print flats, red lips. As a self-confessed “matcher” this is a tricky trend for me to embrace. I always like the tie-it-together piece. So, I’m learning to keep an eye on braver girls who mix-it-up & gain inspiration from their ideas. Best of all – pull-out the shoes, earrings & handbags you may have overlooked for several seasons & see how they work now. You may just save your self some precious pennies!
