Winter White

I never quite know what colours to love in winter. All the soft sundresses and bright blouses of spring and summer have been put away for the season. The deep, rich mustard, maroon, navy and emerald tones of fall are getting tired. Warm, winter clothes seem to only be made in dull, muddy colours that match the slush outside the door – and get boring so quickly.

It’s this time of year, that I always start to flirt with winter white and the first pastels of spring. It’s like hitting refresh on your wardrobe, starting back at the beginning and getting ready to begin sneaking the spring clothes back out.

I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for spring! We bought a house with front and back gardens that need a lot of work late last summer. We were able to do most of the cleaning up over the fall and winter and now I am exceptionally eager to get the gardens in shape for spring and summer.

I’m so tired of wearing pants, sweaters, socks, and winter dresses with lots of layers. I want so badly to pull my light and colourful summer dresses out of their winter storage and throw them on with sandals. Maybe that’s why my new Mint Macarons Skirt is an early spring dream.

I’m always itching to dress for spring at this time of year but it’s just not quite warm enough yet in Canada. That’s why my first new spring design is a heavier cotton skirt in the most classic of spring colours: mint. This skirt was made to be the first bit of spring in a late winter wardrobe.
