Green for Spring

10 Mar

Hello Glamourites,

I got a little too excited yesterday when the temperature outside went above 0 degrees! I know that’s definitely not anywhere near to being a warm spring day, but it is a big improvement from negative 26 with wind chill. In getting excited about spring being around the corner, I started brainstorming ways to lighten up your home by adding a fresh feel. This can easily be done by putting a new coat of paint on the wall, reupholstering furniture, spray painting wooden chairs or even buying some new plants. Green is the perfect colour in many ways; it is known as the colour of balance and harmony and of course is the symbol of regrowth or spring. I hope it is warming up wherever you are and you get a chance to add some green to your house!

Hello Glamourites,

I know for me I always want to be stylishly dressed whenever I leave the house but that can be difficult during the winter months when the temperature drops. I’ve compiled some outfit ideas that you can take inspiration from to keep warm and still look fashionable! It’s been a fairly warm Christmas where I have been but I have a feeling after New Years we’ll be in for some cold days ahead…I’m definitely not looking forward to that. Personally I wish it was summer all year, guess I gotta move to Hawaii if I ever hope to get that. Hope you all are having a fun and relaxing holiday xx Glamour Planner

A sweater such as this, made of wool or polyester is the best type of fabric to go with for winter as it keeps the moisture out and the warm air in. You may assume cotton is another smart choice to go with, think again, it is an extremely absorbent material and will soak up all the moisture around you. Pick a unique colour as it will stand out and add some personality to an otherwise typical grandma sweater. balmy_sweater

LAYERS. One of the most efficient ways to dress I find. With my temperature issues, too cold when outside and overheating once inside it is easy to shed a layer or two depending on how hot/cold it is. Plus you can mix and match all sorts of colours and patterns making for an exciting outfit!

Purchasing a signature winter coat can be all you need to spice up an outfit if you are out walking the streets running errands. A colour like this plum burgundy is a beautiful shade for the dull days of winter.

A fur vest of any type is an excellent addition to an outfit as it creates an instant elegance that is effortless and keeps your core body warm and cozy through the day!

My ABSOLUTE favourite winter accessory/secret is scarfs. I have a huge plaid scarf with about 5 different colours that goes with anything and everything I’m wearing and when I open it up it’s as large as a blanket. Having that around my neck it just about doesn’t matter what else I have on I will be sure to be toasty warm!
