Happy Monday pretties!
Valentine’s Day has passed but I am in no way, shape or form ready to give up all things pink and sassy yet [or the chocolate, or the wine, or the heart shaped pastries to name a few..]. But since most of the holidays to get super “festive” for have passed, I’m struggling a bit with what clothes and color palettes to choose. I consider the time between February to April to be “fashion limbo.“
It’s cold. It’s snows, occasionally (or a lot.) Or then it’s 65 degrees one day of the week. Then it goes back to -3 with a 40% chance of snow showers and a 100% chance of a glass of Malbec after 5.
Mother Nature’s mood swings are going strong in these months, and it’s hard not to want to fast forward to spring. But it’s even harder to imagine getting dressed. It’s still too early for florals, but too late for plaid blanket scarves.
During these months, I tend to stick to darker, neutral colors and slowly start transitioning to spring brights in the form of my jewels, heels or bags! Basically my accessories are already in spring, while my clothes are stuck heeding whatever prophecy that poor groundhog’s shadow predicted on Groundhog Day. When I was in Florida they were experiencing a bit of a “cold spell” (60 degrees) so I was able to get away sans jacket and able to bare my toes! I brightened up my look with some leopard and a bit of pink to make the neutrals look a bit more lively.
P.S.: If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that I’m currently in India! I’ll be updating y’all in a post later this week recapping my Valentines Day weekend and giving you the low-down on what I’m doing halfway across the world!
