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.

Blue Black Hues

The dark color palette of winter can easily take over your wardrobe. Why not brighten it up with a colorful statement coat to throw over the neutral under layers. This double-breasted boxy powder blue 80’s inspired coat from Reiss creates a stimulating color contrast and immediately adds an interesting androgynous factor to the look with the high collar and the bulky lapels.

The neutral under-layering of this look consisted of a color-blocked cashmere turtleneck sweater and my favorite embroidered knit drop crotch pants. The embroidery on the pants and the asymmetrical ivory panel on the sweater are the subtle details that make basic under-layering a little more stimulating.

Why not feel like a champion when rocking shoes that look like they came out of the wardrobe of King Louis XIV and subtly tweaked to fit our current-time shoe silhouettes. A well done job by the “Paris Collection” at H&M! The immaculate construction of these beautiful elongated suede shoes with the bejeweled front buckle detailing plus the comfort factor?!.. I’m sold!
