MadnessMansion 's Thoughts:

So call me crazy, but I think my clothes have feelings. And moods. Yes, I really do. I try really hard not to play favourites so the others won’t feel neglected. That’s why I can’t choose just one transitional piece. But these are a few of the ones up there. It’s Fall here, but it still feels like Spring to me.

I welcome Spring with a balance of dark and bright. While I want to embrace the sunshine and the blossoming flowers with “happier” colours, I don’t want to look like a multicoloured swirled lollipop either. I think all the vibrance might give me a giddy high. Black calms my outfit down a little, bringing some of the leftover darkness from a perhaps gloomy Winter. Dark tones like navy blue, olive, chocolate and grey also work – these are my transitional colours. For me, it’s this random black loose fitted tank top I’ve worn from season to season. Meanwhile bright colours or patterns still make a statement, providing a little burst of cheer and energy. Crazy, I know.

Being in a testosterone-dominated field of study, my engineering buddies would drag me to sit with them on the university main steps to “people” watch. They say, “As the weather gets warmer, the skirts get shorter”. I totally agree.

A hint to me that Springtime’s arrived is when I’m able to walk out of the house bare legged and not absolutely freeze to death. Perfect for the season, short skirts or dresses make me feel pretty and girly (it’s a big plus when I’m constantly surrounded by sloppy males). The best part about them is that they’re easy to layer with. I throw on a blazer or a thin knit cardigan to keep myself warm without feeling suffocated. It balances out the shortened hemline and also gives a sharper edge to a feminine look. I love this double breasted teal blazer that has colour yet subtlety. And if there’s a Spring breeze that gives my naked legs are chill, I simply pull out a pair of thigh high socks that I’ve stuffed in my bag.

I’d have to say, Springtime’s all about balance. Colours with shadows, edgy femininity, minis with layers… It’s the season of love, and aren’t relationships all about compromise?
