Electric Daydream

www.stilettosandsubstance.com

Spring is the season of daydream, excitement at the increased day’s length and at the sight of pretty blooming trees. The season inspires us to press the restart button on our lives and start on a new page. New floral prints make their way back to our wardrobes as we feel the need to express our new happiness in color.

For this spring season, Ted Baker has a series of vibrant floral prints. Here I am rocking my new neon floral print blazer from the electric daydream collection. This blazer with its neon undertones is a staple piece for spring due to its styling versatility. It can be dressed up when paired with a pencil skirt for an evening dinner/lounge attire or with a pair of skinny trousers for a more relaxed daytime brunch look.

To Avoid detraction from the statement floral blazer I decided to keep my accessorizing to a minimal. I finished off the look with my favorite white booties from Asos and a simple chain bracelet.

The Calm Start of Spring

stilettosandsubstance.com

With the start of spring, I have been really appreciating finding good basic pieces to build outfits around. I have been on the hunt for well fitted high-waist trousers for a while now and finding a pair that fit like a glove is very rare. American Apparel high-waisted velvet pants were a miracle to come across, they come in both navy, black and oxblood and are “AWSUM” for outfit building.

For this outfit I paired my velvets with a cropped white vintage blouse with an organza collar that I purchased from “Awoke Vintage” on a recent shopping stroll around Williamsburg. Awoke Vintage is a cute petite store that started back in 2009 in Australia and now have a Flagship in Brooklyn! They have a fun collection of vintage blouses with fun lapels and collars, and oversized printed dress shirts that could look really cute in summer paired with denim shorts.

I accessorized my look with teal bow patent pumps that I bought from Charles and Keith during my Singapore trip and now finally got the chance to wear! The rest of my accessorizing comprised my statement scissor necklace that I purchased from SoWa market in Boston and my new fierce purple lipstick from Mac “Heroine”.
