Maybe it’s the grey winter days we’ve been having in Jersey City and up in the Dacks, but lately I’ve been drawn to bright pops of color. Definitely a mood lifter wherever you are, whatever the weather. And rainbow stripes will continue to be a big trend this Spring. They’ve been popping up in designer collections since last year. At the moment, I’m pining for this amazing Sophie Hulme tote. A rainbow and glitter! Haven’t plunked down the cash yet but will keep you posted.
This past Sunday it was our typical round of chores before heading back to “reality” — dump run, Sugar House Creamery for milk, yogurt and more, plus a quick check in at one of our favorite local stores, Big Crow Trading. Must be in the air, because everywhere I looked I saw rainbows! Oh…and lots (and lots) of taxidermy. And I’m sure you noticed that Bowie wore his rainbow stripe sweater, too.
This outfit is a mix of old and new, colorful and comfy. Outerwear pieces: a bright pink puffer, pom pom beanie with a touch of neon, and my warmest Ugg boots. Underneath: a rainbow striped crewneck, skinnies and don’t-leave-home-without-it Uniqlo HEATTECH crewneck.
Hope this look inspires you to brighten up your wardrobe. Now and come Spring. Let me know!
