As you can see, I completely missed my blog post last week. I had all of the best intentions to get my thoughts posted but one thing lead to another and it wasn’t until Sunday night that I remembered, long story longer – my short term memory is getting much shorter.
I am noticing that I have to do a better job at being organized. This semester things just are not aligned.
Maybe it’s the fact that I have a “real” corporate job that requires travel, board meetings, press events and a whole lot of stress. Or maybe it’s the fact that the boys are getting older and their physical appearance is a constant reminder of how time is really flying.
Whatever the reasoning may be, I just can’t seem to find my rhythm which is sort of why I am happy its spring.
What was once dead and rustic, will blossom into a lively pictureus scenery of colors. All of the natural elements of spring represent life, love, a new beginning and second chances. It is a pleasurable season where everything seems to morph into its best version of itself.
The trees are a lot greener, flowers are a light brighter, people seem to be a lot happier and there is an overall presence that the stresses of yesterday have faded away.
I love spring if you can’t tell. For me, the season awakens my senses, my creativity comes alive, my spirit is lifted, but what I enjoy most, are the colors that surrounds me, especially the ones strategically designed within the latest spring fashion.
New fabrics, textures and designs – just the thought alone brings some happiness to my subdued attitude.
The idea that I am able to tuck away those heavy sweaters and coats is seemingly comparable to putting away my worries and troubles. It’s like the changing of the guards.
So since I enjoy your company so much, I have compiled a list of sites that can provide some creative ideas in terms of breathing new life into your wardrobe and mid-set:
For the bag lover, you might want to check out Bagsnob and Bagbliss, which both provide different op-eds on the latest bag designs.
For unique hair and nail tips sprinkled with a little gossip, turn to Addicted to all thing pretty. I found this site on accident and now I visit at least three times a week.
For an introspective into urban fashion and culture, check out Fresh, Fly and Flash and Blacksnob.
For that the budget conscious shopper, The Budget Fashionista will help you come up on some great finds.
And never cancel out the idea of thrifting; a highly overlooked alternative where you can find some classic pieces. Fashion of DC Good Will can put you on the right track.
Remember that with all things, its quality not quantity that makes the difference.
Until next time – Live, Laugh, Love
