chirp & bloom

The weather has topsy-turvied for weeks, but spring has officially arrived — days are longer, sunshine is clearer, flowers are peeking through, and I forgot how much I missed the sound of birds chirping. While I’m excited to dive into primary colors and bold prints, I’ve been gravitating towards soft, light colors: cream, ivory, dune… It’s a breath of fresh air and a chance for a clean slate.

Whether it’s an unexpected ruffle or a playful faux-fur trim, CLU‘s designs always have a whimsical touch that I love. The asymmetric fil coupé finish on this dress is oh-so-pretty and adds a tad of dressiness, while the sweatshirt top keeps it cool and comfortable. I know I’ll be cherishing this piece for seasons to come.

Until next time!

    I love that dress. At first I thought it was a skirt and sweater (which would have been equally divine regardless)! Seriously adoring the mix of textures.

      Thank you so much Mel! I use Affinity photo to make the collages — you can do a lot with it (there are tutorials for how to use it on their website). And then a software called GIMP to make things clickable within the collage. Hope this helps 🙂

    I know right, happy that Spring has finally sprung. here too, although the weather’s still pretty unstable but we’re getting there.

    i love how you combined soft hues and textures, the pleats specially. you look so cozy but chic at the same time!
