I have to say, behind fall, spring is one of my favorite seasons. Maybe I’m a little biased because I’m a spring baby, but I absolutely love the softness, beauty, and ethereal feminine energy of springtime. It’s an important time for growth and reflection, and a reminder that change in our lives can be a beautiful thing.
This spring, I’m really embracing the combination of bright pops of color with softer, neutral tones. I’ve also already picked out some of the items in my Spring Fab Fit Fun box, so I’ve decided to incorporate those items into my mood board as well. Starting with the color palette, as I said, I’m feeling very connected to traditionally feminine colors, such as bright pinks and soft peaches. While my personal wardrobe is still very neutral and somewhat minimalist, I love adding a pop of color in my makeup. This spring is going to be all about berry lips, lots of pink blush, and lots of highlight, thanks to the Tarte Tartiest pro highlight palette.
In regards to fashion, I am receiving this fabulous ribbed sweater coat (which normally retails for $99) in my Fab Fit Fun box. I think it will pair nicely with the outfits I already have, and also, potential outfits I would like to buy in the future. I don’t really have any disposable income right now, but just for fun, these are some of the clothes I’ve been looking at on ThredUp. I like staples that are both practical and fashionable, so I was immediately drawn to these stripy flats. I also really loved this blue dress, but again, I’m not trying to spend money where I shouldn’t. Maybe when graduation gets a little bit closer, I’ll think about splurging on a nice, girly, floral dress.
For jewelry, I picked out this set of two gold necklaces in my spring box (I promise this isn’t a FFF ad), so I’m looking forward to dressing up my outfits with that. Even though I have neutral-toned skin and I can theoretically wear whatever colors I want, I’ve always leaned much more into warm-toned clothes, makeup, and jewelry- such as gold and rose gold. I’m thinking that I needed a new staple necklace anyway, because the silver one I’m currently wearing has been giving me a rash on my neck. It’s not super flattering to walk around looking like you have 5 hickies, trust me.
Anyway, that’s essentially my spring aesthetic in a nutshell! I’ve never been someone to keep up with trends, even when I was a fashion major, so I honestly have no idea what the “actual” spring colors/trends are. Nonetheless, I’m feeling really good about this season, and I’m looking forward to sharing more of my looks with you on instagram. Also, of course, I’m looking forward to reviewing my spring FFF box in the next few weeks. Updates to come!
