It’s officially spring and it’s my favorite time of year! Spring is definitely my favorite season. The weather is perfect (we don’t get to say that much in Houston), the flowers begin to paint the landscape, and it’s time to pull out the spring wardrobe.
We just got done celebration the Persian New Year also known as Nowruz. Nowruz always takes place on the first day of spring, symbolizing new beginnings for the new year. It’s celebrated for 13 days and the last Nowruz holiday is known as Sizdah Bedar where we typically gather outdoors with friends and family. Again, this year’s Nowruz festivities didn’t involve much gathering due to the pandemic but that didn’t stop Persians around the world carry the traditions in their homes. Check out this site to learn a bit more about Nowruz.
Spring fashion is synonymous with floral and bright colors. I love transitioning into the season with colorful sweaters and light pieces. One of my favorite fashion tactics is being able to wear one piece in different ways. This Zimmermann skirt can be styled for brunch with heels or for walking around town with sneakers. I love the detail in the stitching, bringing some structure to the skirt.
It’s pretty clear by now, I’m a huge fan of Zimmermann. This fun and flirty skirt makes it easy to create a brunch look and a feminine sporty look when paired with the right pieces. The mango color is perfect for spring and can easily be transitioned into the summer season since the material is linen.
The print of this See by Chloe blouse reminded me of a whimsical watercolor painting making it an ideal brunch outfit. I love that there are splashes of mango in the colors that match the color of the skirt perfectly. The subtle ruffles in the sleeves go along with the flintiness motif of the skirt while the white base of the blouse pulls out the white stitching detail. As the saying goes, it’s all in the details.
To stay cute and comfortable, I swapped the heels and Dior bag for these Lacoste sneakers and Chanel backpack bag. I’m a fan of girly looks, so to stay fully on theme, I opted for this the Ronny Kobo top that also has some ruffle details. Backpacks have been a go-to for a casual outfit, but leave it Chanel to make the backpack trend fashionable with just the right hint of casual. The bag can be worn casually with sneakers but also with heels for that sporty chic look. I love this Chanel Gabrielle backpack bag so much, that I got it in this color and the all black to cover my bases 😬.
Another reason Spring is my favorite season is because it means Summer’s around the corner. Summer typically means beach vacays, poolside activities, and tan lines. Even though this summer’s travels are still uncertain, it hasn’t impacted my love for Spring. What’s your favorite season?
