Here are just a few photos and elements that are inspiring me style-wise this spring. Some are old, some are recycled die-hards from years past.
I love a good floral. This year I am digging more vintage-y looking florals with dusty mint, mossy green, and light cream.
SLBD AKA Sexy Little Button Down
Yes, I just made that acronym up myself. I’m clever, I know. A true Gemini. But seriously, There’s nothing I love more that a soft, BF style button down. The versatility this piece provides makes me giddy just thinking about it. tuck it into skirt, tie it over this maxi, throw it on with jeans and flats, roll up the sleeves and leave two-too many buttons undone, wear it as a light jacket with an embroidered camisole like this one, I am going to stop now because I’m getting too excited…I am also digging a little gingham gone sexy! This print can look a little tablecloth, but a touch of sexiness like a short short or deep-v should do the trick.
On one hand it reminds me of a grandmother’s handmade blanket, on the other hand it adds interest and texture to a look. Either way, it’s caught my eye. I would love a crochet bikini. It’s a fine line between grandma and sexy, but I’m determined to try it out beach-side this year. I’m thinking a tote is a great way to dip my toe in the crochet water. I am in LOVE with Olivia Palermo’s texture-rific bag. I’d love a bigger one to go from plane to sigh-seeing to beach on vaca.
I know these have been in the rotation for years for many, but I really haven’t been psyched about them until this year. I’m a slow trend bloomer at times. I think my subconscious is just looking out to see what has staying power before jumping in full force. Actually, now that I think about it, I really am a look-before-I-jump kind of gal. Anyways. There are a few different styles I can’t wait to get my hands on this year.
The pattern that never gets old. Ever. They are just everything. Depending on the garment and colors they range from sexy to adorable, preppy to cool, trendy to classic, sophisticated to edgy. A comfy yet sexy striped tee with jeans is going to be my go-to-look for traveling this spring. And I can’t wait to prance around in a little striped tee-dress.
