It is officially spring! That means that this is the last of my “Spring Refresh” installment. The snow here in Denver is starting to melt off and the sun has come back out to play. I, on the other hand, have been spending the last few days seriously editing my closet in preparation for spring. I love being organized. Unfortunately my INJF personality causes me to be simultaneously organized and messy in various ways.
With this weekend officially being spring, I’m excited to “re-set” and prepare for warmer weather. Makeup trends are fun to explore with the change of a season but the foundation to a fresh and beautiful face is your skin. As the weather changes, so does my skin, and I love preparing it to looks (and feel) its best. Here are four of the products I will be using a lot of over the next few days to prep my skin for spring.
You know those days where everything is just a struggle? There may not even be a “good reason” for it but it’s just how it is…you feel yourself lagging and all of your energy is simply gone. We all have them. The good news is that there is something you can do! There typically is something causing you to feel blaze’ and even if you don’t know what it is, trying some or all of these steps often fixes the problem.
There are some trends that are guaranteed to always be a part of spring fashion. White, pastels, and florals are all trends that are spring staples. There is one trend that is not “ordinary” for this season and I am loving it! You’ve probably seen me mention that the 60’s and 70’s are making a serious comeback and the “spring refresh” I’m sharing in this post is straight out of the 70’s.
Spring is showing her sweet, pretty self here in Denver. I hear birds out my window while I work and can smell the scent of new growth on the breeze while I enjoy the sunshine. I know that soon the trees will begin to sprout brave little buds and delicate blades of grass will begin their journey through the soil.
I have a few favorite ways to make an outfit more visually interesting and one of them is texture. There are various ways to incorporate texture for all seasons but when its cold outside I love a textured sweater. Cozy and fun, they instantly add depth and detail to a look. It doesn’t get much easier than throwing on a sweater. I always recommend spending your time shopping for the right pieces so that you don’t have to spend your time trying to figure out what to wear each day.
On our last day in New York City, the hubby and I decided to do a little exploring at The Highline. We only had a couple of hours before we had to head to the airport to catch our flight home but we made them count by checking out this great new spot of the city. Since our next stop was a long flight home, I made sure I was comfortably dressed. The two key pieces in this look I purchased on major discount during the Nordstrom Anniversary Event in the fall.
Have you ever had that moment when you saw a piece of clothing and you were immediately drawn to it because it so perfectly communicated an aspect of your personality? Well that was the moment I had when I saw this sweater. I know it sounds a little dramatic but you wouldn’t think so if you had experienced alongside me the frustration of finding a perfect, beige sweater. Of course…I had to fly to Hawaii (the Big Island to be exact) to finally find it.
