Lovley In Lavender.

by Jamila Pierre

When I threw on this number a friend of mine was shocked to see me in, and I quote, "so much lavender". It took me by surprise because I happen to love this color very much and have worn this jacket before, so to hear her say that was just like a "where have you been and have we just met?". The color lavender in particular has a nostalgic effect on me bringing me back to a time when I was a mommies girl, wanting to be just like her even down to the her favorite color. And it isn't just the color, but the wonderfully powdery smell of the actual flower... it just brings me back to a time when I hadn't a worry in the world. Come spring time, I look forward to incorporating this color into my wardrobe and quite frankly you should too. If a lavender jacket is just too much for you then maybe you can leave the color to the smaller details of your outfit. This color suites everyone and makes whoever wears it look that much softer, which is just one more reason to be so in love with these pale muted hues this spring.

But of course I couldn't just throw on a soft girly color and call it a day, I had to throw in some harder pieces in order to truly call it my own. What's Jamila without a little edge. So when you go out there and get yourself some pieces in this color make sure that when you throw it on... it says you.
