Spring Mood 2015 | Fashion Inspo

Regardless of the fact that much of the US is quite under the weather right now (pun intended), Seattle is in one of the few regions that’s experiencing super pleasant weather (complete with peeks of sun). This not only means that I have been experiencing HIGH amounts of energy and outputting major positivity, but also that I’ve started preemptively planning my spring wardrobe.

Developing wardrobes for seasons is new for me; it’s something that’s come as a result of having a really solidified aesthetic for my personal style. Before I get into the thick of developing the capsule (new vocab word for me) I try to envision what I want my closet to embody for the next few months and what kinds of pieces I’ll need to be able to maximize its potential. A big help for doing this? A mood board. A collection of images, colors, textures, and shapes that will sway the purchases I make into becoming a cohesive collection of pieces.

Define some goals for yourself to get started. This spring my fashion goals are:

  • To utilize texture in order to create interest in outfits, not only physical texture but graphic texture as well.
  • To collect pieces in a minimal/neutral color palette so the shapes can speak for themselves
  • To find a pleasing balance of tomboy and feminine
  • Heavy contrast in color and feel (soft vs hard)
  • To look like Alexa Chung as often as possible.

Developing a capsule wardrobe for a season can be a tough task, luckily Caroline from Unfancy has some pretty sick tips for getting started.

Good luck!

I’ve been on the hunt for home-inspo ever since the new apartment hunt has gotten more serious. I’m dying to find some antique Eames chairs, some innovative shelving solutions, and all the indoor green plants.

As far as the new place goes? I’m aiming for something with more natural light. And something with more of a downstairs that is a pizza restaurant.

Where do you get your best home inspo/decor?

Just a few things that have caught my attention this morning:

1. Got the beach on my brain. The coastal color scheme and the easiness of this composition are making me ache for the breaking waves and days spent with my feet in the sand.
2. Calligraphy numbers always deserve to be on a mood board, especially when they are as charming as this.
3. Cherries have been my summer fruit craving this year, closely followed by red currants and watermelon. (Allllll of the watermelon).
4. Gold leaf + script font + words to live by
5. Does it get better than a glamourous metallic jumpsuit?
6. Loving the style of this illustration of the flat iron building. Miss you, New York.
7. The lines that the tile creates all over this room are so pleasing to my eye. Anything with a grid pattern is a friend of mine.

Speak to you soon!
