Spring fashion thoughts on a snowy day

Hi Everyone,

January weather has finally arrived in Boston! This gloomy, snowy day is enough to drive me crazy – or at least drive me to Pinterest to scour for spring trends and dreams of warmer weather. As far as spring 2013 colors go, I think we can all agree that YELLOW and EMERALD are in. Nothing makes me happier than bright colors, but I have to be honest, I’ve never been a huge fan of either yellow or emerald on me, but I love them on other people! If you are in my boat, and want to wear these spring trends, but don’t have the skin-tone to bombard your wardrobe with these hue-filled items, here are some tips for adding them into your spring lineup:

Mix yellow or emerald with other neutrals like, black, white or tan

As you can see, there are many ways to bring the bright colors of Spring 2013 into your every-day-style without having to a) buy an entire new wardrobe or b) wear an outfit in a color you are not fond of just because it is “in.” For now, stay dry, stay warm, and stay fashionable.

I will leave you with a quote from Audrey Hepburn that makes me smile:

I believe in manicures
I believe in overdressing
I believe in primping
at leisure and
wearing lipstick.

Don’t forget to flatter yourself today!

Xoxo,
Tara
