Can you believe that it’s ALMOST Spring? My calendar and to-do lists can’t, but my wandering mind most certainly can. I thought I would share with you some of the things that are on my Favourite Things for Spring list to hopefully help you forget the freezing temperatures of winter.
My favourites tended to be in three colours: whites, pastel pinks and baby blues… Which pretty much scream Spring, don’t they?
Perfect Pastel Pink Favourites
I don’t wear dresses often, but when I do I want to imagine that I am somehow going to be swept away into a romance novel with the wind blowing my perfectly tousled hair and my loosely flowing dress as if I was a cover model for a book. This dress pretty much screams that fantasy, and I’d pair it with this gorgeous blush leather and suede bag. And since no Spring is complete without flowers, I’d consider these floral slip-ons as the perfect way to spice up my plain Jane uniform without going overboard.
Baby Blue Bonanza
Blue is my favourite colour (if only because grey/black/white don’t technically count as colours) and it’s not much of a surprise for me to tell you that not only is my living room painted a very neutral hue of blue, but that I also favour it in almost all my home decor selections that aren’t in my typical palette. I like these small blue and white plates for entertaining – especially since they are all different, which gives them a certain “handed down heirloom” feel. This blue painting would be perfection on a wall needing a splash of colour and the blue pillow would brighten up a neutral couch. My hands down favourite that I’ll be incorporating this Spring? These agate bookends. Swoon.
OK. I once directed a friend trying to buy me a gift at Le Creuset to buy “the most boring colours” imaginable and she laughed at me before realizing I was dead serious. Unfortunately, she didn’t get me this white Le Creuset pot which sets my minimal loving heart on fire. Imagine the things I could cook in there! The panther earrings and fur trimmed slippers are obviously part of my ongoing quest to add more luxe to my life. Another quest is to be more organized… Which I’m desperately trying. But these lucite containers (circle | square) would make the whole process so much easier, no? And for someone with an ample bosom, a sweater in a stripe with a v-neck is a rarity. I must own it. More brands take note!
What is on your Spring wish lists? I’d love to add more to mine…
