New season, new beginnings ...

Aww, spring, my favourite season. For me, it’s not just about the colour but how mother nature reinvents herself, it’s all about new beginnings. Daily woodland walks (with my two four-legged friends Pippa and Alfie) remind me how the scattering of ‘new shoots’ spark the element of creativity in me. For me, there’s a reassurance about mother nature, the sky is still up there, the birds still sing, the sun is up there (somewhere!). It’s consistent but inconsistent at the same time. A little like human nature too!

Talking of new beginnings, have a look at my latest blog all about Suzanne’s style journey with me.

Having lost her mojo she wanted a kick start, a new beginning, plus support and guidance on how to be the best she can be.

New season colour and trends ... 

In the sartorial arena, more often than not, spring is about colours, flowery patterns, stripes and new trends. This year is no exception – just bolder, bigger and with frills to add into the mix!

So have fun putting it all together – because it is all together! But have no fear, for those of you who prefer to keep it simple, that’s perfectly OK too. You are in charge, you know what makes you feel comfortable, you have already a wardrobe full of clothes and if you want to add to it - you have a huge choice out there!

This is YOUR wardrobe, so YOU make the rules, whether see-through, tulle or embroidery are your thing, or whether you are more of a mix-and-match or less-is-more type who will enjoy classic pieces with the odd ‘fun’ accessory. Here's some of this season's key trends.

As I mentioned in my last newsletter, GREENERY is this year’s Pantone colour of the year, and if you want some inspiration have a look on their Pinterest GREENERY board

Not everyone is going to resonate with GREENERY, nor will it look flattering on them either. The key question to ask yourself is 'do I like it?' If so, 'do I want to ...' or 'how can I wear it?'
Remember darrrrrlings, just because it’s on the catwalk doesn't mean it must be on you. As a WARM, I already have a few pieces in GREENERY, in fact, green is a key part of my foundation wardrobe, which means I'll be unintentionally on trend! Here are a few examples of key pieces I love to wear and an outfit I've pulled together to travel in for an upcoming trip to Europe.
Greenery - a staple colour in my WARM wardrobe - leather jacket, cashmere poncho, wool oversized scarf, emerald shearling stole.
All set for the airport, here's my traveling outfit - emerald green jacket, soft white relaxed fit T, green mix oversized scarf, relaxed fit jeans, cowboy boots. My words for this outfit: comfortable, colourful, practical!
Bare shoulders

The sexy shoulder is still on trend, phew, cos I love this a lot and have been doing this for years!
Power sleeves
This season, sleeves have ballooned and flounced, but be aware they add volume. They can be bell shaped, flared or lampshade, but shouldn't finish below the knuckles.

Bold or classic, wide or slim; stripes come in all shapes and sizes – just make sure they show off your assets.
CMB lipstick
With the start of the new season, I’m also delighted to announce that Colour Me Beautiful has brought back all the old favourite lipsticks!!! Yay, whohooo!

I have them all in stock at my boutique or you can buy them through my online shop.
