I’ve been gazing at the trees outside, wondering when the first leaves will appear. I long for green. To help coax the foliage to appear I thought I’d share some green inspiration. My favorite color combination? Green with black. In this instance I am going to say it is a combination symbolic of green growing out from under the darkness of winter. Above, these super pale wispy greens with black have a dreamy feeling to them. Are these greens for real or are we imagining them?
If I could point to only one space that I look to for inspiration, almost weekly these past months as I work on designing my own home, it would be the Parisian apartment of L’Wrenn Scott featured in Vogue in 2012. Last week, like so many others, I was saddened to tears to hear of her tragic passing. The beauty she created in fashion and life shall live on and continue to inspire.
This photo, found in my Pinterest feed, has had me enchanted. There is a feeling of buoyancy and a color palette that walks the perfect line between delicate and vibrant. Finally, the weather today made it seem appropriate.
I love how these images here capture a feeling of abundance and simplicity together. An interior rich with color and sophistication, yet casual to its core. A collection of row boats unassumingly bright. Books and a simple bunch of gerbera singing the same song of color. These photos all seem to be about having so much that you need so little.
Let’s be whimsical and celebrate spring, while wearing flowy gowns, with balloons and swings. The ensemble from Wes Gordon’s Spring runway shows you how to dress the part in real life. Equal parts white and colorful, structured and flowing. How will you welcome spring?
Street style shots from the Fall 2014 Fashion Weeks featured a plethora of furry looks that seemed to be spring appropriate in feeling. Considering that the cold temperatures seem to be sticking around, I like these looks for staying warm while still feeling a bit sprightly. Faux options abound for a look without the price tag as well.
Handbags with a spot of color seem to be quite on target with this look. I especially love the yellow cross-body/clutch above.
I like that these looks here feature pumps or open-toed shoes to further signal a seasonal change. I have recently acquired a 50’s era vintage faux fur stole that I have been wearing with black jeans and white blouse. I can’t wait to add some fun pumps and jewelry to the mix! How about you? Will you try some fur for spring?
