and obviously when those first tender buds of spring start to burst forth into colourful pretty profusion a woman's thoughts turn inexorably to... her wardrobe. Well, naturally! To be honest it doesn't take much of a push for my thoughts to turn to my wardrobe.
The weather is still a tad cold for flinging off those drab winter-y layers, but I'm getting pretty excited about what to incorporate into my wardrobe for the warmer weather that is creeping in. I'm thinking my new spring and summer wardrobe will inspired by the colours of an Aussie spring environment, like pictured here. Thus, a dose of sage greens, ivories and beiges (surprise!), some light dresses in muddy neutrals (surprise!) and I have a few sharp bright colours to throw into the mix as well. A lot of my plans have been virtuously conceived from doing a thorough recce* of my stash, but I'm not going to completely close my mind to the possibilities of new fabrics and patterns and let's face it, when have I ever?! However I will attempt to use just some of the lovely fabrics in my collection that have been too intimidating to cut into.
What about you? Are you making sartorial plans for the changing season; whether it be spring, or autumn for the northern hemispheries? And where do you take inspiration for your wardrobe plans?
