Monthly Musings


Linking up with Holly and Patty.

1. What is your go-to spring outfit?
Linen pants and a tank top.

2. Favourite spring fashion pieces?
I like a new dress. I always like to go shopping at a few boutiques near my house to see what dresses they have.

3. Do you change your handbag for spring?
No, I don't have a large collection of handbags so I just continue using whatever I'm using.  

4. When do you bring out your open toed shoes?
Usually when the temperature is consistently above 10 degrees Celsius. 

5. Favourite spring scents?
The perfume I wear is Jo Malone's English Pear and Freesia, which I wear all the time, even though it sounds springy. In nature I love the smell of lilacs which are only out for a short period in the spring. 

6. White after Easter? After Memorial Day? Heck, whenever I want?
I don't wear a lot of white but when I wear it it's not dependent on a date on the calendar.

7. Favourite ways to add spring to your wardrobe when the weather is not quite cooperating?
Try to break away from the black that I seem to wear consistently in fall and winter, adding something with florals, even if I still need to wear a sweater on top.

8. Do you change up your make-up routine for spring?
I try to be better at putting sunscreen under my make up everyday.  My dermatologist said I should do it even in the winter but I don't always remember.  But since I start being outside more in the spring, I need to be better at putting it on everyday, even when I'm not wearing makeup (which is most days).

9. How do you transition your wardrobe for spring?
When the weather is consistently warmer, maybe in a couple of weeks, I will bring out my summer clothes (light pants, thinner dresses, tank tops, shorts) and put away my winter things (knit dresses, heavy sweaters, long sleeved tops). Start wearing sneakers instead of boots.  Stop wearing nylons or tights with skirts/dresses. 

10/  Favourite spring accessories/jewerly?
Earrings that are a bit more bold and aren't hidden under a touque or scarf.  Bracelets that aren't hidden under jacket sleeves.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate! He is risen!

I will be back next week. 


  1. Linen pants and dresses are two of my favorite spring fashion staples too!

  2. I hear a lot about that Jo Malone fragrance. I should check it put. Thanks for joining us.

  3. Oh yes, I love my linen pants! I am on the hunt to find a perfect pair this year.. and then buy them in a few shades since the only pair I had last summer were black.

  4. I enjoyed reading your answers. I love Jo Malone's Lime, Basil and Mandarin.
