Spring makeup and fashion staples


Spring is just around the corner and although I don't love any season more than others every time when the seasons are changing I am excited, because it brings different weather, food and fashion choices. Winter fashion is great, but after a while it's fun to switch chunky scarves for ballet flats. And vice versa, at the end of Autumn I usually can't wait to wear my favourite winter boots. Change of the seasons is a great thing, it keeps us motivated, inspires us and makes everything from fashion to cooking more fun. Here are my spring staples, to inspire you and make the transition between winter and spring easier.

1) Pink blush Makeup wise nothing says spring more than matte pink blush. My two favourite shades are MAC Desert rose and Rosy outlook.

2) Playful lips and matching sunglasses I love bold lips, and while winter is reserved for red and burgundy shades, warmer days require simpler colours, like Captive from MAC. Tortoise shell sunglasses are what I wear the most this time of the year, these in the photo are Tortoise Ray Ban Wayfarer.

3) Moccasins There are many shoes I am looking forward to wearing and moccasins are one of them! I own only one pair, black ankle high Tramper boots from Minnetonka.

4) Striped navy shirt I can't possibly imagine myself wearing a striped navy shirt during Autumn or Winter. In my mind they are only for Spring and Summer. I can never decide between white with navy stripes or navy with white stripes, I just love them both equally. The one in the photo is from Zara.

5) Pointy heels Past few years there's been a trend of wearing bare legs in the Winter. I have to say I'm not the kind of person who will go with bare legs when it's cold. There are so many ways you can incorporate tights in your outfits, fashion has to work for you, not the other way around! Also, I only like most of the pointy heels only without tights so the time is coming for all the pointed toe shoes I have. In the picture I'm wearing my silver pair from New Look (via Asos)

6) Open toe sandals As soon as it's warm enough you know I will be wearing sandals! I love them and try to use any chance I get to set my toes free. Ones in the photo are from Zara (from last year).

7) Leather jacket Although you can wear leather jacket during the Winter and I have done so, many times, you can only feel comfortable in it while the weather is extremely nice. Can't wait for all of those lovely outfits with leather jacket and spring dresses! This one is from Mango.

8) Colorful jewelry I'm someone who likes to wear bold jewelry and as Spring is approaching I'm going through my jewelry collection and picking out colorful and vivid pieces, like these two with my favourite stone, turquoise. Short one is from Forever 21 (home of some of the prettiest jewelry out there) and long one is from H&M.

9) Floral prints While Meryl Streep's line from Devil wears Prada always makes me laugh, the truth is florals are perfect for Spring. Why not embrace the whole vibe and wear them, it feels great. I ordered this amazing Vero Moda Floral Kimono dress from Asos, because truthfully I don't own that many clothes with floral print and I wanted a nice floral dress.

10) Boyfriend jeans To really rock the boyfriend jeans you either need ballerina flats or heels. And your feet had to be bare. No one ever looked good in boyfriend jeans and winter boots. Of couple pairs I own, my Levi's 501 I got in Amsterdam are a current favourite.

And there you have it, I tried to keep it short and interesting so I only picked 10 things. Another style staples that has it's peek in Spring are ballet flats, but I'm doing a post about them soon and didn't want to spoil it by showing them now. 
What are your style staples for Spring?



Proleće je iza ćoška i iako nemam omiljeno godišnje doba svakog puta kad se prelazi iz jednog godišnjeg doba u drugo to mi je zanimljiv period, zato što donosi drugačije vreme (proteklih godina manje-više), hranu i modne izbore. Zimska moda je divna, ali posle nekog vremena zabavno je zameniti teške šalove baletankama. I obrnuto, na kraju jeseni obično ne mogu da dočekam da nosim moje omiljene čizme za sneg. Promena godišnjih doba je sjajna stvar, motiviše nas, inspiriše i čini da sve od oblačenja do kuvanja bude malo zanimljivije. Ovo su moji ''ključni komadi'' za proleće, da vas motivišu i učine prelaz sa zime na proleće lakšim.

1) Roze rumenilo Što se šminke tiče ništa ne vrišti proleće više od mat roze rumenila. Moje dve omiljene nijanse su MAC Desert rose i Rosy outlook.

2) Zabavne usne i naočare za sunce koje idu uz njih Ja obožavam jake karmine, i dok je zima rezervisana za crvenu i bordo, topliji dani zahtevaju jednostavnije boje, kao MAC-ov ruž Captive. Naočare za sunce čiji ram izgleda kao da je od kornjačovine su one koje ja najviše volim da nosim tokom ovog dela godine, ove na fotografiji su Ray Bay Wayfarer model sa ramom koji ima tu šaru.

3) Mokasine Puno je modela cipela čijem se nošenju radujem i mokasine su jedne od njih. Imam samo jedan par, crne Minnetonka Tramper čizme do članaka.

4) Mornarska majica Ne mogu da zamislim kako nosim mornarsku majicu na prugice tokom jeseni i zime. U mojoj glavi one su samo za proleće i leto. Nikada ne mogu da se odlučim između bele sa plavim prugama i plave sa belim, volim ih podjednako. Ova na fotografiji je iz Zare.

5) Špicaste cipele na štiklu Nekoliko prethodnih godina postalo je popularno ići golih nogu zimi. Moram da kažem da ja nisam osoba koja će ići bosa kad je hladno. Ima toliko načina na koje možete da ukombinujete čarape uz odeću, moda mora da radi za vas, a ne obrnuto! Meni se recimo ne sviđa kako većina špicastih cipela izgleda sa čarapama, tako da vreme za sve špicaste cipele koje imam tek dolazi. Na slici nosim srebrni par iz New Look-a (naručen preko Asos-a).

6) Sandale sa otvorenim prstima Čim je dovoljno toplo zna se da ću nositi sandale! Volim sandale jako i gledam da iskoristim svaku priliku da oslobodim prste. Ove na fotografiji su iz Zare (prošlogodišnja kolekcija).

7) Kožna jakna Iako možete da nosite kožnu jaknu i tokom zime i ja sam to uradila mnogo puta, prijatno ćete se u njoj osećati samo kad je vreme jako lepo. Ne mogu da dočekam sve one divne kombinacije sa kožnom jaknom i prolećnim haljinama. Ova je iz Manga.

8) Nakit u boji Ja sam neko ko voli upečatljiv nakit i kako se proleće približava tako ja preturam po svom nakitu i tražim komade u živim bojama, kao ove dve ogrlice sa mojim omiljenim kamenom, tirkizom. Kratka je iz radnje Forever 21 (poznate po nekim od najlepših komada nakita) a dugačka iz H&M-a.

9) Cvetni printovi Mada me rečenica koju lik Meril Strip izgovara u filmu Đavo nosi Pradu uvek zasmeje, istina je da su cvetni printovi savršeni za proleće. Žašto ne ići po osećaju i nositi ih, kad je atmosfera taman za njih. Naručila sam ovu sjajnu Vero Moda cventu kimono haljinu sa Asos-a, zato što iskreno nemam toliko puno odeće sa ovim printom, a želela sam lepu cvetnu haljinu.

10) Boyfriend farmerke Da biste stvarno dobro izgledali u ovom modelu farmerki morate da ga nosite ili sa baletankama ili sa cipelama na štiklu. I noge moraju da budu bose. Niko nikada nije uspeo da iskombinuje boyfriend farmerke i zimske čizme a da to dobro izgleda. Od nekoliko pari koje imam, moje Levi's 501 farmerke koje sam kupila u Amsterdamu su mi trenutno omiljene.

I to bi bilo to, probala sam da tekst bude kratak i interesantan pa sam izabrala samo 10 stvari. Još jedan ''komad'' bez koga se ne može zamisliti proleće su baletanke, ali pišem post o njima uskoro pa nisam htela da ga pokvarim time što ću sad da ih pokažem. 
Koja je vaša omiljena odeća i šminka za proleće?
