With the time change in full swing, we’re finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. There’s day light beyond 4:30; it’s brilliant. For those of you who can’t venture to a tropical destination, I have a few solutions to help you gear up for spring.
Bring spring inside:
One thing we tend to neglect is bringing fresh flowers inside. Even if things fall off the rails throughout the week, a floral arrangement seems to make everything look better. As many would agree, tulips are always a spring favorite. Plus, they’re so many colours to choose from. My personal favorite is coral. I love this arrangement in grey or neutral painted rooms.
A more affordable alternative to tulips, is babies breath. Not only is it a pop of freshness but they also have a longer lifespan than most flowers.
Ditch the boots:
Aren’t we all sick of carrying those heavy sluggers around? Even if the weather suggests boots, bring your flats inside. You’ll be the envy of the office as the first to sport a flirty flat. We’ve almost forgot the fun of pairing shoes with tapered trousers.
Be practical and cute:
Noting screams spring like carrying an umbrella. The benefit, you’ll be prepared for the days when snow turns into rain. A great place to purchase a new umbrella is at Halifax’s General Biscuit.
