february is like a walk in the park, that month of transition between something. a kind of a short sunday afternoon. honestly, february isn't usually a shopping month for me. however, it's an interesting time to plan and make a soft transition between a harsh winter and a much less intense spring.
so here's how I'm going to make the transition from the dark, sombre reds that have been worn over the last months. here's the colour palette. as for jewelry, I still don't have a favorite shade, and I'm going to keep balancing between both of them. fashion itself is divided and doesn't know which way to go. it seems as if nostalgia’s going to impose silver on us, as soon as we see runways full of big and dominant gold jewelry.
to be sure everything is at same pace, blue seems to fit in perfectly with red. and since in times of crisis boldness takes centre stage, patterns will be a plus. and if there's one thing you could consider investing in, it's leopard-print. imagine the look: jeans, denim shirt, sabrinas, sage earrings and a small red bag.
and so we slowly begin the transition to what are, for me, the best months of the year - the spring months.
