Why This Is Our Favourite Time Of Year

If the return of daylight savings isn’t the best thing that happened to you all year then you’re lying. It somehow manages to creep up extremely quickly, and paired with it the first warm winds of spring, you’re dancing down the street bare-legged in florals in no time.

Spring means colour, fake tans, and the confidence to go out again in something that isn’t ‘jeans and a nice top’. Although our European friends in Paris at fashion week have shown us the cool warms of their autumn ahead, we can steal parts of their effortlessly cool style and incorporate it into our perky spring easily, which you can find in our top picks below.

Red has made an all-time comeback this year, and we are finding in all corners of the world and wardrobe. From a classic red lippy to those suede red mules you’ve wanted for too long, and everything in-between. We definitely are not complaining and have some perfect options to satisfy your red desires here.

Spring brings the return of the ultimate outfit combinations: jeans + t-shirt paired with colour popping shoes, shorts/skirt + jumper, floaty dresses, the list just goes on. Lucky for you, our colourful, flattering picks for the spring ahead have you set and ready for the longer evenings ahead.

Parisian Confidence

There is something ridiculously romantic about Paris. The beautiful old buildings. The streets lined with boutique florists and bouquets of baguettes. Not to mention the population of French Bulldogs…. but as we were sitting on the street inhaling our crepes, the main thing that caught my attention was the Parisian Women. Timelessly classic, basket bag in hand and walking with confidence. As we sat there, we noticed that there was one thing all the French Women strolling past us seemed to have in common.

They were attractive no doubt, but they walked with purpose. Acting like they had woken up looking effortlessly chic, when in fact upon closer inspection their make up said otherwise. A Parisian Woman could be have having an awful day, however she’s not going to show you that. Instead making you want to dress like her, look like her and maybe even be her. Our model Sasha in the Malaia Dress encapsulates this feeling so well.

While American Celebrities often think revealing outfits that leave little to the imagination may be the key to sexiness, the French Women prefer to play with nonchalance, revealing enough to create the desire and wanting of more. You can find our interpretations of this style here, here and here. The Parisian Women, glowing with confident attitude will give you a subtle smile, look away and walk off knowing you’ll be left gazing.

Next time you feel like you need a little boost of confidence – follow the Parisian way. Mess your hair a little, apply your favourite red lipstick and walk tall. Look and act confident, and feeling confident will follow.
