We have all seasons in one day here in UK, don't we? ;-)
Sun, rain, wind, sun again and so on. No surprise that we get so confused when it comes to our sartorial choices.
So what to wear this Spring, what to buy to be ready for whatever the weather brings?
I have for you some suggestions based on key jobs I want my clothes to do, which are:
I love the idea of having a collection of key versatile, comfy and stylish pieces that frame my style. Each piece gives me min 3 outfits in my wardrobe and ideally five. With age and wisdom I have totally reevaluated my needs for clothes. These days I appreciate having a peace of mind coming from having fewer "good friends" I could rely on when it comes to putting outfits together. I love to have a solid base of clothes, shoes and bags and unleash my creativity and expression via accessories and small details, and make up of course!
Each of us is different so be honest with yourself and your wardrobe needs. Are you getting bored when wearing the same clothes over and over again or you find it liberating? Are you an eclectic and edgy chick who always want to play with fashion, try different colours and have fun? Or maybe you are somewhere in between?
If you would love to create a hassle -free wardrobe that gives you peace of mind and confidence in your outfit choices and release more of your precious time for other important things in your life then think seriously about what you spend your money on when going shopping next time. Here are my suggestions..

And some outfit ideas
What is really great about any neutral/ pastel base- you can always add colours through make up, nail polish, accessories and bags! Personally I love grey and navy base as it can give you multiple outfits, you just cannot go wrong with that.
We all have different style personalities, though, so for some of you a plain solid base may seem boring, maybe you prefer patterns and bold colour blocking. It is all about knowing yourself, your preferences and what makes you feel confident.
I do believe that if you are not entirely clear on what it is that you want your style to say and how you want to feel in your clothes, what job your clothes should do for you, what (if any) impact you want to create then it is easy to end up buying clothes that you either never wear or wear only a few times (because these are not "you"). Take time to understand your style taste, set up Pinterest folder, distill your aesthetic and then build your ideal style that makes you look and feel your most authentic self.
You may think that your wardrobe is OK but deep inside, you know that you could look so much better, you don't want to pretend anymore to be someone who you are not, you accept your body and want to dress it and your personality in the way that works with you, not against you. You are ready to drive,be in control, create a wardrobe and style deliberately, no more guessing, drifting, impulse purchases, feeling guilty of spending money on clothes you don't want to wear. You want to be a one chic and sophisticated lady, have her own visible sense of style and a functional, headache-free wardrobe. You want to wake up every morning feeling peace of mind that you can put together an outfit that makes your body look great and makes your style glow. Is that you? Does it sound like you?
Here is what you can do to take your style to the next level===>
