Looking like Spring
It's spring! Hurrah ...... Well the calendar says so anyway. The weather, however, will not co-operate. It is only 8 degrees and raining sideways as I write this.
I am sick of wearing, and seeing other women wear, black/brown/grey/beige and their variations. The question is how to update (i.e. make more spring-like) a winter wardrobe without wearing yellow flip flops - or their equivalent. Besides, your do't want to freeze to death.
So here are some of my ideas to tide you over until it does get warm:
1/ Wear a bright trench (fuchsia or orange) over a business pencil skirt and buttoned cardigan;
2/ I just saw some fun white polka-dot on navy rubber boots with fushia liners that made me really smile in spite of the rain;
3/ Pull out one of your most colourful (read Hermes-like) scarf squares and wear on your head with bright shades;
4/ I had a 'business lunch' last week (since the sun was shining) and I wore a navy checked skirt, fushia top and a silver grey jacket. Just to give it a kick in the right direction, I wore the mary janes your see in the photo.
I always feel that there is some hope when I see a bit of colour. Sometimes you just have to help things along a bit.
