Today was gorgeous in Atlanta and gave us a big taste of Spring. So, before tomorrow when we flip around the temperature from 64 to 46, I have some colorful inspiration on what to look forward to this Spring. Waking into almost any clothing store you will be able to find colorful jeans with bright pops of color. Go bright and bold this Spring. Look for not quite neon colors but ones that are bright and clear. Emerald is the color for 2013 (that makes me happy)! I’m also very happy to see some color scenarios using grays and yellows. (visit my Gray and… Pinterest HERE)
Designer, Rachel Roy, created a Spring line of clothing with “a new balance pairing aquarelle pastels with vibrant pops of color — the contrast of Amethyst with Soft Shell, Bloom with Hibiscus, and Flax Linen with Candy Pink creates the emotion of unbalanced beauty.” Her favorite must-have item is a jacket in Limeade which I hope I am lucky enough to come across.
Try throwing an economical pair of colorful jeans into your existing wardrobe. My favorite places to shop for them would be Gap, Old Navy and The Loft. It is fun to stay on-trend without breaking the bank. If you aren’t bold enough for the pants there are plenty of bright and colorful jackets that will go with your existing jeans.
It is the perfect time for Senior Portraits. I love for my High School students to have timeless outfits that will never grow old for their Senior Pictures. I also encourage doing something really fun and representative of their last year of high school. My sessions include lots of variety and is a really fun experience. I expect to see many ice-blue jeans and other colorful outfits soon and can’t wait!
Happy Spring to you – even if just for today! ‘Punxsutawney Phil’ (The Groundhog) did not see his shadow this year so we are definitely going to have an early Spring! (right?)
