Based on the groundhog’s prediction earlier this month, the new, spring season should be right around the corner.
I am very excited for this change of seasons for many reasons. Of course, the warmer weather and longer days topped my list but there is much more.
For the last three years I have worked on my website My Art to Inspire and freelance design work from home. During that time, I created a simple, casual, yet comfortable style.
My simple winter style consists of dark colored, cashmere sweater dresses, black leggings, and boots. This works even when I have meetings outside of my home. I usually add a necklace, tall boots, or stylish booties to make the look more business casual. Maybe still too casual but it seems to work.
Recently my workload has grown and I have to expand. I need to find a new workspace. So, next month I move to a shared workspace in an office instead of my home. Now my comfortable style and wardrobe definitely needs to be updated.
Lately, I have taken some time to peruse the on-line world of fashion. I checked out the latest trends from the MiUS Collection and other on-line stores for a sense the latest and greatest in spring fashion.
It seems that my daily ensemble of black colored sweater dresses, leggings, and boots need to be replaced by bright, colored pants matched with some colorful floral or patterned blouses and dresses. Hopefully, accessorized by some new bright colored flats or pumps, necklaces or bracelets.
I can’t wait for all of these new beginnings. I am ready to get out of the winter blues and into colorful spring floral designs.
Now where should I begin?
