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.
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 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!
