WHAT TO WEAR: Spring Awakening

WHAT TO WEAR: Spring Awakening

It’s that time of year again. The sun is out, the flowers are blooming, and most of us are finally getting that break we so deserve. Whether you are traveling to some far away resort or simply basking in the sun back at home, it is safe to say that we are happy. Happy the sun is out or simply just happy that we don’t have to think about school and all the stress that comes with it, even if just for a week. Whatever the reason, take it and run with it.

Run to the beach or to the pool, wherever it is, be happy and look good. With the sun out it’s time to put the winter coats away and pull out the tanks and shorts. Go wild and maybe even throw a bit of color into the outfit. Have fun because that’s what spring is about, looking fresh and looking happy. That’s why this month’s look is all about freshness and happiness.

I will admit, I myself am not too adventurous with my outfits. I tend to stay within the comfort of black clothing despite the heat that comes. However, sometimes I do add some color or prints to make things a little more fun. That’s why this particular outfit got my attention. The black cardigan not only looks good, but it also helps against any surprising winds that spring may bring. Especially when at the beach because, let’s be real, despite the warmth when the sun goes down it gets chilly. The cardigan pairs well with this black and white printed T-shirt, which has an exciting pop of color on the breast pocket. Add comfortable black sandals and you’re ready for any fun beach outing. However, no matter how simple the item may be it is the black jean shorts that really hold this outfit together. They are versatile enough to be worn to the beach as well as to dinner later that evening. And with fun filled spring break days it is important for the outfit choice of the day to fit any activity that may come up. To finish it off, because it is warm out, keeping the accessories to a minimum is a better option. This Fashionisto did just that with a simple long chained necklace and a nice pair of chic black sunglasses.

Spring is here. As I said before, it is time to rearrange our closets and add some color and some shorter sleeves. And most importantly, it is a time to be happy and stay fresh!
