In order to find my way back to my joyful self, and beating my grief, this weekend has been all about looking forward to spring. I've been excited about one out of the first days with plus degrees, which made me glance towards spring fashion trends: pattern blazers and storage solutions.
Finnish Olivia got me dreaming about bright spring color. I've mentioned earlier on my blog how I gain energy from colors and when I browsed through my magazine and hit this page, my energy level instantly increased. I think spring is all about painting our life bright again, through our wardrobe.
I especially fell in love with the idea of having a yellow blazer, so I picked one up at H&M. I've also been looking at the blazers at Malene Birger, that you see here above, inspired by Olivia's page on the right. Birger's blazers are timeless, and I'll sure keep the name in my mind when I plan my next quality purchases. I love the cuts of those blazers!
But I've not merely been inspired by colorful blazers, but also ones with patterns. One of my favorite blogs, Frills and Thrills, introduced the blazer that has inspired me the most during the last month - Kate Beckinsale's graphic pattern blazer! I saw the look on Finnish the Voice.
I love her whole look! Where can I find this blazer, or a similar one? I'm also into floral pattern blazers, like this one that I found on Flickr.
Interior wise it has been the storage solutions I've seen on Finnish Divaani that have inspired me the most. Wouldn't it be lovely to organize one's clothes in the way showcased on this spread?
I love the idea of having shoes on the wall by storing them on lists or frames. Right now I only have one shoe pair on display, the red shoes I won from Finnish shoe designer Minna Parikka. You can see the pair in this blog post.
On this spread I love how the dresses and shirts are color-coordinated in the closet. I'll have to do the same with my dresses!
