Spring Is Coming

by Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Spring is coming. I know it’s near impossible for my East Coast snow bunnies to believe, as you sit under about 67 feet of snow and arctic temperatures, but I promise you, it is. Here on the West Coast, things are getting a bit mild (read: 50 degree nights, 75 degree days) and it’s got me thinking about everything from resort season to snow cones with my girls and trip out to the beach.

I’m breaking the winter blues today with a bright and floral number that I thought (when I purchased it online) was out of my comfort zone. Turns out the draping that made me nervous and the length that seemed perhaps too short — wasΒ actually part of the perfect plus size tunic.

I am so glad I decided to give this tunic a try – I’m in love! The draping may add volume to my hips, but the pattern slims it out. The colors are so cheerful that I feel light and airy and like I’m ready for a fun warm spring evening party. With fashion, like everything in life, it is so important to push and challenge yourself. Even something as simple as trying a new silhouette can be so empowering.

Are you already dreaming of spring and summer? What colors do you turn to most in warmer weather? Tell me below. I’ll start: bright pink! I love love love it with a tan.

  • I love blues in spring – there is something so very fresh about them. Unfortunately, UK weather means a spring tan is near impossible!
