I'm probably sounding a little spring/summer obsessed at the moment.
But the truth is, we're already half way through winter, in less than two months time the sun will be shining, the birds will be singing and I will have bought all the chemists in this fine city right out of Claratyne.
And do you know what that means?
It means we need to start preparing to
bring our wardrobes out of hibernation
and back into the world!
So today we're talking, Spring Denim.
Contrary to popular belief,
can't just go around wearing the same pair 365 days a year
if more people knew this the world would be a much better place.
If you think about it, it makes sense.
All winter long you've been rugged up to the max (if you're anything like me who has a temperature deficiency) and making good use of your jeans - with or without thermals underneath (no, that is not a joke).
In winter Navy and Black are the mains on the menu,
this season the chef's special was burgundy
and everything came in that shiny "coated" finish.
So, when the rain goes away and you start bringing out your lightweight cardigans and pretty summer tops, these dark, dreary hues just aren't going to cut the mustard.
Now you could run out to the shops and buy yourself a lovely pair of stonewashed skinny's, or maybe you'd prefer some sky blue capris?
Don't make me sick,
It's called fashion for a reason, and that reason is,
it ain't a uniform!
So try something different this Spring, I promise there's something for everyone,*
Here's some inspiration to get your juices flowing,

|JOE'S JEANS Poppy Print skinny jeans in 'Lilac', $179|
|PAIGE Verdugo ultra skinny jeans in 'Red & White Polka Dot', $189|

On a bit of a budget?
|MOTEL Jordan skinny jeans in 'White & Mint Stripe' and 'Candy Pink Stripe', $90 each|
Motel have brought bag this insanely popular winter style in candy-land summer colours to spread the joy.
You've got time to find exactly the right pair (or three) before the season hits, but don't wait forever or they'll all be gone (and you'll be stuck rifling through the Supré sale bins)
