Early Spring in Eco-Footprints


Although I adore the occasional all-black ensemble and neutral colour palettes, I wear colourful outfits generally. And, even with spring at a moments entry of our doorway (very soon) there's not too much that wavers with my personal style. I am not one to wear certain colours only by the season, as many of you know that I wear florals throughout the year, and don white or burgundy on any given day without a faltering of uncertainty. That's just who I am!

Gudrun Sjödén has loads of colour, and that why I love the brand so much, in addition to their ethical principles and ongoing celebration of women. I especially adore the eco-home collection, as you've seen before. This time, I chose a dress in a bold rouge paired with flamingo pink. The large scale pinnate style print was one that I would not ordinarily wear, but I thought that I would change things up as I've not a ton of red garments in my wardrobe.

The dress is a simple silhouette---a maxi style jersey dress can go far in the fashion arena, and for me versatility is everything. To play up the pattern I mixed classic stripes with this look, and since it was gloomy and cold at the time, I used a boyfriend blazer in black to break up the colour.

This dress is not only hassle-free to wear, but the fabric is soft and supple, and folds so compact that it makes packing a breeze. With that being said, have you thought about your spring-summer holidays yet? Mine are pretty much booked, but there's a wedding thrown into the mix (not mine), so there is much to modify, and prepare for.

I am looking forward to being able to sit outside street cafés as the sun shines brightly. A perfectly mind day preferably late morning. Meal: brunch, Drink: espresso, and a generous mimosa, Extras: probably 2 biscuits, Key items: wearing my Kate Spade sunglasses, and open-toe sandals.

What are you looking forward to for spring?
