I cannot even express fully how much I am enjoying the signs of spring. It arrived suddenly and caught me off guard - winter pale, starved for the sun, fresh warm air and first delicate blossoms. It also made me realise how comfortable I felt in my greys.
Chosen as the perfect choice for winter and stress-free time with a hyperactive cocker pup, the charcoal wools, denim and cashmere became my second skin, too personal to be easily shed off with the first rays of spring sunshine.
Still, I knew I had to face the fact that my heart craved the crisp whites and cool blues, soft rose and delicious burgundy. So I went for it - starting with this idea, first one paper - later, in reality. As silly as it may sound (considering the white vibe I keep going on about), the entire outfit began with a pair of shoes I found on Daniel Footwear - the Christy in black leather with a bow tie simply called my name.
They were still a part of the "comforting blacks" yet flirty enough to greet the spring. Choosing the rest of the pieces was a fun style game or hide and seek - I mixed the high end and high street and admittedly, rather pleased with the final result.
I may still need to top up my tan, but boy, oh, boy, I am so ready for spring now! With the shoes, and the dress, and a sweet little bag - it's all good.
