Welcome spring with some floral flair.
In preparation for spring (which is seriously getting here when, exactly?) I’ve been talking a lot about bright colors and bold, exciting prints. But you don’t have to go super bright this season to make a big fashion statement.
This week’s Goodwill gem is a pretty find that’s totally fit for the season – and this crazy, up-and-down early spring weather. Since it’s basically a roller coaster out there and every day seems to bring new temperatures and conditions completely different from the day before, you can’t forgo all those layers just yet, but this lovely scarf will keep you warm, while still letting you feel like you’re lightening up a bit. The lovely floral print is feminine and ladylike, but the classic black-and-white color combo is subtle and sophisticated – and, of course, will beautifully complement absolutely anything in your closet.
Dress up basic black.
We’ve all got tons of black in our winter wardrobes, but I’m thoroughly sick of wearing nothing but dark, drab pieces all the time, and I bet you all are, too. The easiest solution? Put a scarf on it! It’s still chilly enough most days that you want to layer up in cozy sweaters, but it also feels like we’re way past due for a little warmth and sunshine, and the opportunity to wear fresh spring pieces. So, grab that classic black sweater you wear at least twice a week, and top it off with a fresh, springy accessory like this week’s darling find. This scarf is still black and white, so it won’t look out of place on top of a soft knit sweater or other winter-appropriate wardrobe pieces. But the pretty print and lighter cotton fabric will liven up that basic black item and make it feel refreshed and fun again!
