Are we ready for spring? Whether there's still snow on the ground where you are or the bulbs are starting to push up, it's hard not to be inspired by the promise of les printemps now that we're in the second week of March. And this month's By Invitation Only blog party is one big virtual season-starting shopping spree. We're looking for a go-to spring outfit... something inspired by flowers.
Flowers are one of my favorites sources of inspiration. They inspire my art, they inspire my celebrations and how I decorate my home...
And, of course, they inspire my closet, especially this time of year.
Admittedly, when I'm in the studio painting, my go-to outfit is often a hodge podge of the day's workout wear, my favorite Majestic Bay PJs and moth-eaten cashmere. So when I do venture out, I need something as easy as it is elegant.
For years my spring formula has been anchored by pretty floral pint dress - I can't resist adding a new one to my closet when the tulips start blooming. Top it with a cashmere cardigan (J.Crew is my go-to). I'm partial to a small clutch for day or night, but sometimes you just have to grab a carry-all tote - just make it a pretty color or neutral (need a break from black). Ballerina flats for day, sassy heels for night, and I'm ready to spring forward.
So tell me, what's your go-to look for spring? Do flowers power your closet at all?
And please spring on over to see the other By Invitation Only posts - you'll find them at Splenderosa.
