A Tropical Statement

Hello! Today I am very excited to share with you my first post. I wanted to start this blog in spring, since it is my favorite season and thus the inspiration for the blog’s name. Spring, to me, represents life, energy, vibrant colors, and in general, positive attitudes and happiness.

For this special occasion, I wanted to wear an outfit that would be a statement of the meaning of spring to me. I chose this Ted Baker tunic dress because of the design and more so for the strong colors that are a signature of the brand. I love the tropical print, showing those beautiful toucans and bright flowers. The central-color block pleat is a nice detail of the design, and I like that strong orange as well. The back of the dress is simply black with an exposed orange zipper. Sorry, I don’t have a picture of it. But you can see it here. Since the dress by itself is a statement, I just accessorized this outfit with small earrings and simple but classic black sandals. I also wanted to keep my make-up very natural to emphasize only the beautiful, intricate details of the dress. On these sunny days, I am accustomed to wearing sunglasses, and Chanel has been my favorite brand for a number of years.

Thank you very much for reading. New posts will soon follow!
