In harmony with the blooming season

       I bought this denim jacket last fall on a finale sale at  Zara thinking that this item was not going to stay in my closet for longer then one season. I was sure I would wear it a few times and  get rid of it. I remember when I brought it home I asked myself: "What was I thinking?". It looked too colorful for me, but I gave it a try and wore a couple of times last fall with pleasure.

      Preparing my closet for spring, I went through my clothes getting rid of items I didn't want to keep anymore and I came across this printed jacket. I took a look at it asking myself: "Am I going to wear it?"

      Then I set my eyes on a pair of jeans which I bought recently at Anthropologie and..., in a moment, I was standing in front of the mirror looking  like a bag of M&M's... But who cares?  Everything is in bloom in our city. Why not support this beauty by wearing the same colors?

Spring jacket

      The temperature outside is going up and the colors of our clothes are getting lighter and brighter. Especially Given that almost every tree is in bloom, I really want to repeat their colors and wear something pink and white. Spring always brings crazy mix of colors, which I like so much.

      Sometimes I like to sit in a park and observe the mix of different flowers... I am always amazed at how they compliment each other regardless of a full color scheme. They always match perfectly. Mother Nature is the best teacher of how to use colors.

      I finally found my linen jacket for the spring season. I was looking for something like this one for a long time. There was always something wrong with any jacket I tried on: the fit, the length, the color or the print, the quality. In this jacket I found all my expectations. At first, it didn't fit the way I wanted, but as soon as I sized it up it looked on me exactly as I imagined.

Choice of jeans

      I think that jeans are the most popular clothes in the world. Practically every brand has its own denim department with a huge variety of styles, not to mention the brands that produce only denim. But despite of all this diversity it is still not easy to find a pair which I would fit well. Don't you agree with me?

      Honestly, I am still in a hunt for my perfect pair of jeans. The older I get, the more difficult it is for me to find jeans in which I would like everything, and most importantly, I would like how I look in them.

     But the ones that I am wearing today are pretty close to satisfying all of my requirements: high rise,  beautiful and right-for-me leg cut, high quality of fabric and the right length. And, most important, I feel so comfortable and relaxed in them.

Replenishing my vest collection

       As I have already said a few times in my previous posts - vests are one of my favorite clothing items.  In my opinion, vests help create more interesting outfits and elevate any look. They are especially helpful in off-season, when the weather has not settled yet, and mornings and evenings could still be pretty cool...

       I prefer loose-fitted vests that can be worn over sweaters or light blouses and shirts. They are also easy to style with a belt.

      When I saw this vest in a store, I bought it without even trying it on. I was sure it would fit me perfectly, especially since the tag said "One size".

My new suede jacket

      I have been looking at this suede jacket about a month before I decided to buy it. I really loved it, but the thought that the color was very light and had to be cleaned pretty often didn't let me rest. I liked everything about that jacket excluding the frequent cleaning part.

      Finally, I tried it on and realized that this item will satisfy numerous my requirements. It will go with almost every bottoms in my closet. The length of this jacket is just perfect for wearing it with high-rise jeans and trousers, and with my spring dresses and skirts. I bought it and decided to try it on one more time at home with all my spring items and after that make my final decision.

       And, of course, as soon as I put on every bottom I had in my closet for spring, I convinced myself that this jacket was so much needed in my wardrobe. It added a pop of color and more style to every look. And as for the frequent cleaning..., it no longer seemed like a problem to me.

Spring colors

      When I saw this wool sweater coat at my Anthropologie store I realized right away that it is going to be a great option for early spring days. It was in December and I imagined myself wearing this piece when the trees are ready to show us their first leaves and the sky is bright and blue and matches well with the color of this sweater coat. It felt like at that point it was such a long way to go until spring, but in one blink of an eye, here I am wearing it already… Life goes too fast, doesn’t it?

      I found this coat very comfortable and warm in windless cool days. It goes well with a pair of jeans for a relaxing day, and it is also good with a pair of formal trousers. I like when I can wear items in multiple ways. I love the color combination of light blue, grey and coral, I think it is calling for spring.

      The only one thing is I probably will not wear it in the fall season, but I think it is ok. I think it is great to add right colors for each season.

Seasonal change

      We are getting close to the spring season, and I am finding that it is not easy anymore to create interesting and fresh outfits with items I have been wearing the entire winter. Also, I am tired of warm and heavy garments, but it is still not warm enough outside to wear something lighter when I need to walk for hours in the city.

      On Monday I had a day off and started that day with moving my winter coats in a different closet until the next winter season. I felt so ready for something lighter and "springier". I decided that I have plenty of warm sweaters which would help me survive a couple of weeks in seasonal change.

      One that I wore on Monday afternoon was from Free People - light and very warm, thanks to composition of wool, mohair and alpaca. I put a lightweight windproof jacket on top which helped to keep warmth inside. We spent the whole afternoon in Philadelphia and I felt light and warm; and my outfit definitelly put me on a spring mood.
