Spring is all about bringing a new attitude. The weather may not yet be quite what we would all hope, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get ready for warmer weather by putting a little extra oomph into our steps and happy, sunny attitude into our everyday lives.
My Goodwill-sourced gem for this week is darling, super sophisticated, coral-colored clutch that’s just perfect for spring, summer, vacations to warmer climes, or anytime a girl needs to add a little lightness and brightness to her sometimes routine (but never drab) everyday existence. The vivid coral color instantly adds a bit of fun and liveliness to absolutely any look, no matter how basic or standard it might be, and the fabulous gold clasp and chain accents add some unexpectedly chic charm to this piece.
To put a little extra pep in your step, there’s nothing like a sleek, glamorous, ladylike bag that’s sure to tie any and every look together.
Don’t give in to the drabness of the never-ending winter. It might seem like the weather is just teasing us at this point. But though things are still very much touch-and-go at this point, that doesn’t mean that warmer weather, sunshine, and sanity won’t eventually prevail. Get a jump on the seasons and start preparing for warmer temperatures with a wardrobe that can easily transition from chilly, end-of-winter days to early spring. Start with your favorite pair of fitted, curve-hugging jeans (a no-brainer) and top that foolproof wardrobe piece with a fitted tank or tee and classic, polished blazer. The tank or tee-shirt is still fitted enough to show off a ladylike shape, but the blazer offers enough coverage to keep things classy and professional, so this put-together look becomes something you can wear on the daily, no matter what is on your agenda. With a streamlined clutch in a beautifully contrasting coral, you’re ready to head out on the town, no matter where the day (or night) might take you.
This look captures everything a lady needs in a chic but still relaxed ensemble – a perfectly fitted pair of jeans, a classy, one-of-a-kind blazer, and bright pop of a color in a perfectly tailored bag (thanks to this week’s gorgeous Goodwill find).
