#FashionFriday – Spring Into Summer!


One of the reasons I started Whatever Bright Things was to create a space to acknowledge and enjoy the bright things in life – whatever they may be. Too often, I think we fly through the day without stopping to smell the roses, or laugh at a cliche, or smile at a neighbor.

I also want WBT to be a place that inspires you. And in order to do that, I too need to be inspired. So, when I was feeling uninspired to write a planner post for today, I decided to seek out inspiration and share that with you instead.

It’s a bit of a #flashbackfriday because I’m bringing back #fashionfriday.

It’s that awkward time of year in Portland when one minute it’s 80 degrees and sunny and you’re sweating and then the next minute a cool breeze comes along and the sun disappears behind a cloud and you’re freezing. Welcome to the PNW.

It’s also that awkward time of year when you’re ready to rock those bright and neon colors, but without any sign of a tan, they’re just going to look a little sad.

So, keeping my Spring Color Chart in mind, I put together this fashion collage to brainstorm some ideas on how to make the transition from Spring fashion into Summer.

Here are a few tips I came up with:
  1. Pink is your best friend. Maybe it’s just me, but this time of year just begs for the pink color spectrum to come out and play. From a subtle blush tone, to bubblegum/Barbie pink, to an almost-neon-hot-pink, the color pink is the thread that ties together Spring and Summer fashion.
  2. Have fun with juxtaposition. Just as every rose has it’s thorn, don’t be afraid to mix and match texture, color, or pattern. Throw on athletic sneakers with a tulle skirt, pair structured overalls with a fuzzy sweater, or layer a leather jacket over a pink dress.
  3. When in doubt, keep your outfit neutral & add color through makeup and accessories. Denim boyfriend jeans, a white tee, and a black cardigan might not scream Spring on their own, but throw on some pink flats, a mint green purse, and a pop of blush and you just turned ‘blah’ into ‘ta-dah!’ A bright lipstick works just as well to add a bit of Spring color.

I hope you enjoyed this #fashionfriday post – Fashion is always a major source of inspiration to me, and I love being able to share little peeks into my personal style with you!
