Monthly Musings – 2/25/21

Happy Thursday! I am excited to be talking about spring fashion with you today! Yesterday was a little sneak peek into what spring is like. It was still a little chilly but oh so sunny!

Lining up with Holly and Patty

1 – What are your spring must have pieces?

I love bright sandals for the spring. I also love to go heavy on my Lilly and bright colors to welcome in spring.

2 – What are your spring must have accessories?

Cora’s Den earrings and necklaces, of course! I love the bright colors and fun charms or monograms!! I have a 10% off code if you’d like to brighten up your jewelry collection, too – SUNSHINEANDBOOKS10

3 – How do you transition your wardrobe to spring?

My cropped or ankle pants can take me from winter to spring. I tend to keep my cardigans all year long. They are mostly cotton and light enough to layer in the spring. I just swap out my long sleeve shirts for short sleeve shirts and tank tops.

I also stop wearing tights and boots and move into flats and sandals with my dresses.

4 – What are your favorite colors to wear in spring?

All of them!! I tend to wear a ton of colors all year long, but I really wear them all in the spring and summer.

5 – Any spring fashion advice?

Go bright!! Just do it!!

6 – Do you change your makeup in spring?

I don’t change much. My makeup is pretty low key – gold eyeliner, mascara, eye shadow, a little bronzer/powder, and lip gloss.

7 – Do you change your skincare in spring?

I don’t change it much. Usually in late winter, I start using a self tanner more regularly. I feel better with a little tan, even if its fake. I also like how the bright spring colors look with a little tan.

I am not sure how much I’ll change my skin care this spring. I just started using BeautyCounter products and I’m not sure how or if I’ll change it during the spring.

8 – Do you have a favorite spring scent?

Peonies are my favorite flowers and they are spring bloomers. I love they way they smell. I also love the smell of cut grass the first few times Jeff cuts the grass. It’s so wonderful!

9 – Best budget tips to update your wardrobe?

Try to mix and match what you already have. I love to pull new tops and bottoms together or add a different pair of shoes to change up an outfit.

Add bright colored shirts or tanks to update a darker pants/cardigan from winter to spring.

10 – Do you think you will be wearing dresses this spring?

I hope so! I love wearing dresses and didn’t wear many last spring and summer. We are back in school four days a week and I have been trying to wear my real clothes.

That’s how I do spring fashion – bright colors, cardigans, and fun jewelry. See you back here tomorrow for Friday Favorites! Have a great day full of sunshine and books!

    I love all your Lilly! Peonies are my favorite. I can usually only find them at Trader Joe’s in the spring. I’m a big fan of cardigans too …especially at school because I never know if my room will be cool or warm.

    I laughed at “Go bright! Just do it!” I’ll try to remember that this spring. And I love the smell of freshly cut grass too. It’s the best!
