Sarah's Picks: A Collection of Ethical Beautiful Things
These days, I like to keep things simple. Wearability and comfort are huge, especially now while I'm running after my two young boys seven days a week! Here are a few of the things I consider as my spring wardrobe evolves:
Textures & Shapes - When putting together an outfit, I often think about contrast & shape. For example; a wide leg jean with a fitted top; an oversized sweater with a skinny jean; tone on tone in different textured fabrics. Also, I love wearing dresses as tunics as a transitional look, until it's warm enough to show some leg!
Make a Statement - I usually wear one piece that stands out and keep the rest pretty neutral. I love a printed or coloured pant, statement footwear (metallic is my thing), a gorgeous topper (coat, sweater, blazer), fun printed top, or statement piece of jewelry.
Mix & Match - I also like to mix a dressy piece with something more casual like a pretty skirt and plain tee or a dressy pant and sweatshirt - it looks and feel good!
Jeans & Tee kind of girl - My favourite outfit is definitely denim and a white top. I wear white tee's so often I like a new one each season. The new one is my work tee, the old one for weekends, then down the line to crafting or gardening, and so on. In early spring I like a light wash denim, it’s an easy way to dress for spring when it’s still cold out. When summer comes I also love a solid dark wash paired with seasonal tops like pastels, brights, floral prints etc.
How many is too many? – Our maritime weather is always throwing us a curve. Sneakers and light coats work well for spring in our climate, particularly if you love being outside as most of us do! I’m a big fan of the Veja sneakers (they go with everything!), and my coats range from a durable rain jacket to classic trench to light puffer and everything in between.
