I guess it happens this time every year – I start getting really tired of my winter clothes. I know it’s smart to get winter clothes on sale right now, but I much prefer my spring and summer wardrobe and I just don’t want to look at any more winter clothes. Honestly, I wear the warmer weather stuff more of the year anyway – especially with crazy seasons and an overheated school building.
I thought I would research some trends for Spring 2020 and tell you my thoughts and how I can translate them for a middle aged mom and teacher.
Highlighter colors – Yes! I can get on board with this. I already have a couple of pieces maybe that will work for this trend.
I love this necklace I have had for several years. It looks great with a plain black top.
This fun necklace with bright pom poms would work, too.
These leather tassel earrings bring a fun pop of color to many of my outfits.
I used to have the best Gap bright highlighter pink cardigan that was light and perfect for spring. It stretched out in the shoulders and got discolored. I plan to look for:
-another bright pink cardigan
-a bright yellow cardigan
The Disco Collar/Wide 70s collar – Ummmm… I am not sure! I personally do not wear a lot of button downs in the spring. I will have to see this.
Crochet – Maybe? I think I could pull this off with accessories – maybe a purse or a vest? I will not be wearing a crochet bikini.
Hot pants or really short tight shorts – I do not think so.
Suit jackets with bermuda shorts – I really do not see myself wearing this. The bermuda length short is not the best length for my legs. I do remember in the early 2000s wearing black shorts almost to my knees with wedge sandals. Maybe I can find a pic!
Other spring wish list items:
- sporty sneakers – I have seen some Nike and some Tretorns that I love. I am thinking a little bit of a lift would be good. I also saw some Golden Goose dupes on Amazon that are gold and really cute but there wouldn’t be much heel. I had Converse shorelines but they were a half size too small and not comfortable.
- Wide leg pants – I want to try this.
What are you excited to try? What is on your wish list? Any suggestions for me?
