As I looked in stores this week, and on my shopping trip to LA last weekend, I saw that a lot of the new styles and the colors of Easter Dresses for young girls, were more muted, pastel colors. Not that I don’t love pastels, but I think it’s also really fun to add in some really bright and bold colors along with those pastels.
The weather here in Utah this winter has been so weird, we almost had a spring in February and now it’s March we have seen quite a lot of snow. It’s hard to plan for the new spring season when we are still in the cold, snowy weather. For this shoot the outfit that I put together is a bold, Royal Blue skirt with a feminine, lacy White blouse and White pumps. To add a little “edge’ to the whole look (but also because it was freezing and the sun was starting to go down), I added my Black leather Moto jacket which is one of my favorites.
This Royal Blue is a color that actually works for any season, but for spring I toned down the boldness by adding the feminine White blouse and ankle strap pumps. Wearing bold colors doesn’t need to be just for bold, sassy personalities, in fact, when you pair a bold color with a more feminine or muted color it makes it much easier to wear, even if you are not one that likes to draw too much attention to yourself.
With the way fashion and styles are now, there really is something for everyone and with all the choices there are so many opportunities for us to express our unique personalities through our clothes. Sometimes shopping can be overwhelming, not knowing how something might work for you and your body type can be hard when you are just looking at things on hangers. That’s why I like to see what other styles people are wearing, see how they put together their outfits and then take those ideas to adapt to myself.
Not that I’m biased, but a great way to find some fun, unique ways of putting things together is by looking at blogs. There are so many bloggers out there and each one has its own fun way of dressing. I definitely get a lot of ideas from other bloggers and I am sure they do the same. We are all unique individuals but there are very few unique styles or fashions any more. It seems the older I get the more styles I see “recycled” from when I was younger – and not all of them are good. The key is knowing how they work for your body type, personality and most importantly, your age. While I do believe that most styles work for any age there are some that I would NEVER be found wearing because they are just not appropriate for me at my age.
