Transformation or Metamorphosis– Spring is coming, are you ready?
We are headed into the spring season and our minds are already thinking of warmer days, beautiful flowers and for many of us, “A NEW ME.” We have been wrapped up in our cocoons of comfort doing all we can to stay warm while we weather the cold days and snowy nights. I personally compare this time of year to the butterfly. It started out as a caterpillar and prepared for a NEW SEASON. Building a safe and warm cocoon all around itself, then as the itch of spring begins and the days begin to thaw, it has a desire to push out into the warmth and reveal its new wings and bright colors.
For some, this is a minor transformation with a few additional updates to our wardrobe, a few more highlights in our hair and a new pair of neutral shoes (So ‘in’ this season). For others, we joined gyms this winter and started to reshape our bodies and inspire our minds – and the process is more of a metamorphosis. This is defined by a marked change in appearance that others around us will notice. We change from one look in the winter, reinvent ourselves and reveal our new look in the spring. No matter which one it is for you, image and fashion play a major role in turning the cold grey days of winter into the bright colors and breeze of spring. I have chosen a few pieces that will help you look gorgeous this spring and definitely help you to stand out! I would love to help you simply transform a few things or be a part of a larger metamorphosis this spring!
Set the standard and show off your personality with clothing pieces that standout but are still wearable each day. And remember, fashion is an attitude…decide to start fresh every morning by getting up and getting ready. It is always a perfect time to start updating your image on the outside in order to better represent who you are on the inside! Call or email today to set up a time for a complimentary consultation.
A great reflection in the mirror does a lot to determine how you feel throughout the day!

Even a simple black and white checkered shirt (Picture above, available at Nordstrom.com) can have some ‘fashion’ elements to it. A bow, a unique ruffle, a gorgeous neckline…Buy unique pieces that say something about YOU and YOUR PERSONALITY. A simple shell underneath a suit jacket isn’t always enough – when purchasing a piece of clothing ask yourself these questions…
1 – Does it say something about my personality?
2- Is it unique?
3- Does it go with at LEAST 3 other pieces in my wardrobe?
4- Does this item compliment my personal and professioanal brand?
If you answer ‘no’ to any of those questions, put it back. The military look has been in for a while, and some of the pieces were just beautiful! If I didn’t know my personal brand I would have bought one last season because of the immense cuteness, but I wouldn’t have ever worn it. It wasn’t ‘me,’ didn’t define my personality and was not a good addition to my current wardrobe…it is easy to get sucked in by cuteness and sales. KNOW YOUR BRAND and save yourself some money!
I have always said that a great bag is a worthy investment. Regardless of what you are wearing, your bag will make or break your outfit. Buy a timeless style that accentuates your body shape – and can be dressed up or down…don’t feel guilty spending money on a great bag if it’s the right one!

PS: If you have worked with me, you know that I am not one to focus on trends…but since I love neutrals and think they are necessary in anyone’s wardrobe, let’s talk neutrals! This season you should definitely include a neutral pump/heel into your wardrobe…patent leather, peep toe, sling back or cloth works – just make it a neutral!
White jeans! Anyone can wear white jeans if they are the right fit…This can sass up any outfit…wear with flats or heels!
