One of my favorite advantages about living in Charleston is how quickly the weather begins to warm. It is not uncommon to have some high 60’s this time of year, giving you a touch of spring and the promise of summer. While most of the country is still living in a winter coat, we can sneak on a pair of shorts with a light sweater and truly box up the boots.
Knowing the temperature will soon turn makes the January/February fashion flood a little more fun.
Between the s/s 14 and resort collections rolling out, I feel like I already know what I will be wearing (wishing for) in a few short months. Everything is just so beautiful right now. I love that some feminine silhouettes are here to stay for another season.
While putting together the graphic for this post, I decided to pin some of my favorite spring products while I picked them. Though this probably sounds really “Ok, why are you telling me this”, I have been debating that simple act for a while. Up until now, I really wanted my boards to be a product free zone. Besides the occasional product pin, I really never put what I blogged about on Pinterest. There is just something about seeing 40 product pins in a row that kinda ruins the purpose to me. It starts to feel more like online shopping, instead of a resource platform for inspiration. I would love to keep those two separate for as long as the world will let me.
So here I was, late last night, cringing a little as I hypocritically pinned like 50 things onto a new board I obviously titled TO BLOG ABOUT.
Though I could feel it diluting my feed, I did love having it all in one place. Collecting everything that has made it in a past blog post, or has the potential of making it into a future one is a fun endeavor, and I plan to keep products pins only on that one board.
That being said, I would love for you to follow my obviously titled, TO BLOG ABOUT board, but I also won’t get my feelings hurt if you unfollow it. I understand how frustrating it can be to be scanning for something special and inspiring, only to find DIY projects and 40 pairs of of the same D’ Orsay flats (I am not knocking D’Orsays, I love them, but you know what I mean.)
Between the fashion, design and decor world, there are so many wonderful things to save and share without them being related to shopping. But inspiration can also be found from those things with a sale tag attached to them. My goal will just have to be to pick pretty things that have purpose… may they come from the local shop down the street, Etsy or from Saks.
