Spring Wardrobe

It’s that time of year again, it’s getting brighter, sunnier and it feels like Spring.  Every spring (and Autumn/Fall) I get the sudden urge to go clothes shopping.  I’m not a big shopper but the is something about the change of season that gets me itching to overhaul my wardrobe.

There seems to be some huge variations in trends at the moment, one that I can do without is the frilly dresses with very fine flower prints…although with denim they can be ok (but I feel a bit like a throwback to my teenage years!)

Also reminiscent of my younger years is this year’s nautical trend.  Most noticeably in stripes, primarily in navy and white or red and white.  If I dig hard enough I’m sure I’ve still got one of these from when I’m 14!

Once designer who always seems to be bang on trend is Olga Buraya-Kefelian (her blog is here).  She has recently finished a book Ori ami Knits which has some beautiful, wearable knits.  And as a bonus the photography is so beautiful that they are pleasure to look at.  The skirt shown below Airfoil Skirt has got some great over sized pockets that can be worn in several different ways. I seem to be seeing large skirt/cardigan/dress pockets in a lot of places lately and I like that look.
