My dear friends of sunny spring days,
isn’t it wonderful how we can influence our mood by what we are wearing? Unlike my dear mother, I do not have a very good eye for the small signs of nature (such as the first tender buds of spring flowers), signaling the rebirth of spring. For me, it takes more, I kind of need a real “spring statement” – such as my photo print pants! I mean honestly, could a piece of clothes contain more signs of spring? Blue sky, flowering trees and even a few birds fluttering around my legs! Even I can read these signs and understand “ohh, it’s spring!”☺ And that puts me in the mood to go out for a walk, sit down in the sun and enjoy an ice cream (of course there is always a reason to have ice cream, but in winter I prefer to eat in a well tempered surrounding!;) Heeeeello Spring, I’m ready for you! :)
I must honestly say that I am basically a great friend of flashy pants with picture print and still have a few beloved pieces in my closet, which I will be happy to introduce you soon! Such a piece already seeks a lot of attention and, therefore, I combine it with “calmer” basic items. Of course, I do not want to demand too much of the observer – the outfit should be fun and not “exhausting”!
As a consequence, I always look for beautiful and high-quality basics in black, white and nude to add to my wardrobe. When I wear pastel, I particularly like to combine it with nude. Why? I’d love to tell you! :) During my classes at university we talk a lot about colors. And pastel tones are basically “sweet” and “childlike” – because you take a basic color (such as blue) and add some white to it. As a result, you have a pastel color and it’s a “sweeter” version of the basic tone you started with. Combining the “sweet pastel” with black therefore creates a strong contrast. In order to get a light and harmonious look that really looks like spring, you can simply add nude instead of black!:)
I hope you already have had the chance to enjoy the sun and I hopefully you feel inspired to go out and wear a bright outfit that makes you feel like spring! :)
Yours Leonie aka. the Spring Fairy
PS: A heartfelt thanks to my amazing friend Alex, who slipped into the role of the photographer for the first time in order to support me! It was so much fun – I hope I will be able to “book” her again soon! :)
