I feel the need to make some minor adjustments to the things I’d like to wear for Spring – trouble is I’m not sure what they are yet so I’m going to take some time to look at the recent shows, generally be inspired and reassess what I have. It’s nothing to do with not knowing what to wear or not having anything to wear – those days are gone for good – but everything to do with mixing and styling – both things I’ve always been hopeless at. However, I started to do a bit of both last year and really hope to build on that now. I have so many options to mixing let alone the styling part with all the stuff in my wardrobe and inspiration from everywhere has taught me unexpected pairings can and do work really well. Colour is still very much to the fore instead of shoved to the back of my mind and ignored. But I need to focus on the mixing because I know I’m not allowing my wardobe to achieve its full potential! Besides it’s going to be an ongoing reassessment of what I know and love plus being open to trying new things which I feel is important. Overall, I’ve never felt so good in my clothes!
I’ll always love dresses and absolutely love the cut of this cornflower blue above, and that it has pockets! It’s a grown up feminine style that’s even better with the bright yellow shoes.Elegance and style when wearing volume, loose, slouch and drape is something I’d like to achieve for myself. Not everything has to be fitted. Another version of slouch and controlled volume which I think is very chic. Colour mixes are a lot of fun and these days anything goes!Eternal elegance to me yet thoroughly modern though I’m pretty sure that Kelly is very vintage. Bomber and wide leg tailored pants? I’m there! I really, really love this leather jacket to the point of obssession: the soft curves of the sleeves and body as well as the slight roominess look so effortless.New proportions that inspire me to check if I’ve got anything to make a similar look.Proportions again and though you don’t have to wear the skirt as snuggly at the hips, the message is clear. So good: looseness and bit of volume.Beautiful colours and textures in simple lines – nothing more required. Asymmetry and oblique lines always appeal to me. The reason I love this proportion so much is that it gives the illusion of length for the lower part of the body and a smaller, neater upper. Yep loose tailored pants again with a short top.I just love how Carolina’s suit is her uniform and so perfect! She’s also very partial to a crisp white shirt which looks amazing on her.I include these photos because I love her different outfits with the same beloved bag. Thanks for reading!
