I have decided to focus Suburb Chic solely on fashion, which I feel is what most of my readers love about this site anyway! For my first personal style post really of 2013, I wanted to bring Spring to your screens. I'm sure you all are as sick of Winter as I am...unless you are one of those crazy people that like freezing your butt off, ice on the roads, and snowflakes attacking your face when you leave your house.
This look features what I call "statement-making pastels". These aren't your Momma's ancient Easter basket pastels (if those even exist)...these are kapow! pastels. Put your pretty pastels in blazer form with a fabulous floral print and slim black lapel, and you've got one heck of a top. I kept the bottom-half simple with skinny, cropped ankle jeans and classic patent, pointed-toe pumps.
This outfit really showcases my design aesthetic, for several reasons.
First off, I pair trendy pieces with classic counterparts to keep the look from going over-the-top. And secondly, I advise to limit your "statement" pieces to two (maybe three if you're gifted in eclectic dressing). For this look, my "statements" are the Lauren Conrad floral blazer and the chunky Ice Cream Bracelet set from Pree Brulee. The rest of the look is pretty streamlined, classic.
I hope your case of Seasonal Depression isn't quite as bad as mine! I also hope you have a nice, relaxing Thursday. It's almost the weekend people...you can do it. I believe in you! :) xo, Brittany
