Some people take fashion way too seriously. But what’s the fun in that? There is none. There is absolutely no reason to live in a world with no fun. With spring around the corner, and the snow (hopefully) going away, there is no reason not to be happy. To me, the best time of the year is when sweaters are packed up and shorts are brought out. There is something inspiring about starting with a new season. I see it as an opportunity to change and improve myself and my outfits.

Although many people think spring is a time for pastels, I do not. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a nice salmon pink pant, but it is just personally not for me. So, this month I decided to prove that dark colors can work in warm weather and you still can have fun while doing so. In order to prove this, I found this Fashionista sporting a lace-up oversize rocker T-shirt, Converse sneakers, and fun patterned socks. The smiley face socks made me laugh and also reminded me of the fun of fashion. Paired with the rocker T-shirt, it was the perfect match of fun yet also a little bit edgy—which is also trending this spring. The print on the socks has also been seen as decals on jeans, which creates the fun but edgy effect that everyone seems to just eat up. The black Converse brought a mix of fun yet casual, while also matching the black T-shirt.

I am hoping that this spring I will be able to have more fun in fashion, starting with just a smile.
