Mixing It Up

Almost Time for Spring…but Not Quite Yet….

This time of year I get wooed by all the pretty Spring florals but I know that I’ve got a few more months of cooler weather.  I also know that if I wait til March or April to buy Spring items then all the fantastic pieces will be picked over. So what is a girl to do? I like to pair my Spring florals with my Winter staples.  For example take this Equipment blouse and pair with a floral sweater such as this one from Zara. Or take that floral blouse like this one from Banana Republic and open it up over a turtleneck in grey or black. Another idea, is to take your BLANKNYC suede moto jacket and pair with a sleeveless blouse like this one from Nicholas. If you haven’t bought the BLANKNYC suede moto jacket then go check out the blog post here and then go buy immediately!

You will get the best of both worlds. Wearing what it is in your closet and pairing them with the new Spring pieces that you know will be gone if you wait too long. So there you go…permission to go buy new Spring.

Finally I would be remiss if I didn’t point out these shoes by Dorateymur. How beautiful are they? Inspired by the 60’s and 70’s, these patent mules, block heeled ankle boots and metallic leather loaf are outa site!

Here are a few street wear styles for your inspiration…
