Bear with me here, while I alternate between posting about the two feet of snow outside on my doorstep and the pretty spring looks I'm dreaming about once the weather warms up. Don't get me wrong, I'm actually enjoying the wintery weather right now in some ways. It's so pretty outside and I don't have anywhere I need to go so being stuck inside with a little work to do and good food to eat is not such a bad thing. But my mind can't help but wander to warmers days...
One thing I always look forward to at the beginning of each season is flipping through the Orla Kiely lookbook. It makes me feel a bit like Christmas morning, albeit a Christmas morning where I don't get to keep any of the present. Still, nobody makes me want to wear prints more than Orla and the styling gets me every time. For spring I'm loving the color palette of rusty browns, navy blue and sea green. And the sunglasses, oh the sunglasses! I don't remember the last time I bought a new pair. I've been wearing the same aviators from H&M all winter long. I adore those 40s style cream ones paired with the navy looks. I'm also putting light, lacy socks to wear with oxfords on my list of must-tries.
P.S. If you like these, be sure to watch the film. It's nice to see the clothes in motion rather than just still photos.
