Style Bee - Spring Colour #5

SPRING COLOUR #5

04.17.20

Happy Friday! Today’s post is the final instalment of my Spring Colour series, which I hope has helped to bring out some fresh ideas for your closet and creativity. It’s been so fun to play with some of my older spring favourites and share something a little bit different through my daily collages.

I believe that creating, in whatever form you’re drawn to (style, photography, painting, knitting, music, cooking etc.), is always a worthwhile exercise. Particularly during such uncertain times as we’re currently in. Creating can be a form of meditation, therapy or self-expression and is an undeniable component of being human.

This weekend, even if you only have half an hour, grab the medium that speaks to you and give yourself permission to play!

Now let’s dive right into spring look #5 and the collage inspired by it.

THE OUTFIT

Another day, another duster! I’ve had this one in my closet since 2016 and little did I know at the time, that it would soon become a signature element of my personal style. Long outer layers are easily one of the most reoccurring themes in my wardrobe.

Another two signature styles I love to wear are bodysuits and jumpsuits. I’ve worn this combo a few times in real life but I don’t think it’s ever made it onto the blog. I often pair a jumpsuit with a fitted bodysuit underneath for a bit of added warmth and coverage. I love layering fitted pieces under more relaxed ones to create a dynamic combination that is still comfortable to move in.

The next, and final, outfit prompt in this series, is to choose a piece from your closet that feels like a ‘signature’ style. Maybe it’s a specific pattern or a type of sweater or just a pair of jeans you love to wear. Use that piece to build out a look you haven’t worn for a while or maybe ever, and see where that takes you!

THE COLLAGE

This last collage is a medley of colours I very rarely gravitate towards. Even though reds and blues are not my typical palette, it was fun to go hunting for something different within the pages I’d been frequenting all week.

I’d initially thought that by day 5 I’d have all sorts of insights about my collaging experience but my brain seems to be more foggy than it is clear. One thing I do know is that I looked forward to my hour of creative time each day more than anything else. That alone is enough of a take away for now.


Thanks for indulging my creative whims this week!

Did you try any of the outfit prompts or take some time for creative play? Of course, no worries if this wasn’t your thing! I’ll be back again soon with new style ideas, creative experiments and more.

Wishing you all a safe and restful weekend.

    I think this might be my favorite outfit so far! The combo of blue and burnt orange is one I always love, but never come up with on my own. Your prompt has me thinking about my own signature style pieces that often get neglected in spring, especially this spring. When I think of the signatures of my style, one of the most prominent is light jackets and dusters. I’m always cold so, even in the summer, I’ve got some sort of jacket. Being cooped up in the house right now has me leaning more on comfy sweaters (and, yes, my robe) than my favorite dusters. I hope this motivates me to dust off my dusters!

    • Thanks for reading and sharing these thoughts Justina! I hope your light jackets/dusters got some time out last week, but if not, that’s okay too 😛

    I’ve really enjoyed watching your posts this week Lee. The different colours you have put together for each outfit have been really refreshing. I’ve also loved the link to the collages, such a simple but effective spring point for creating a collage.
    Definitely a good idea to spend time doing something creative, it really focuses your thinking and makes you forget everything else! I’m enjoying my comfy tracksuit pants at the moment, but have been wearing some different tops with them instead of hoodies all the time, which I found makes me feel a bit less daggy. (Still thinking about your post on the Everlane leggings, tempted to buy some….)

    • Thank you so much Kirra! So happy you enjoyed this series. You’re so right about how creative activities help to focus our thinking. I love your approach to switching things up with your tracksuit pants! Still a huge fan of the Perform leggings, they’re easily my top pick for ultra comfort.

      I hope your week is off to a good start. xo

  3. I love the rich tones in this palette! It plays so nicely with your coloring. So happy spring is right around the corner (supposed to be warm here all weekend!).
