Spring as an autumn

Happy Ides of March!  For some a celebration for others a literary designation, but let’s go with the first day of the full moon! 

Today, I am discussing how I look at spring as an autumn…and I have a fun little giveaway to celebrate spring!

This is my second year to face spring as an autumn…meaning I wear an autumn palette and my wardrobe is built around it.

Typically, Spring and Summer fashions feature pastels and bright cool colors as the stars.

But, I am pleasantly surprised to have already discovered some autumn warmth in colors for spring.


Spring as an autumn

Today, I am wearing that same linen olive jacket you saw yesterday over my new Talbot’s top….Pebbled Dot Ruffle Shell in Ivory/Rattan.

I love this little top…it will go so well with the rest of my wardrobe and is perfect for warmer weather…it also comes in black.

I have a feeling I am going to wear this one out.

I also have on the new High Rise Straight Jeans at JCP in natural.

This pant has more of a flair to it than I typically wear, but that is one of the reasons I liked it…ready to try something new.

I like a spring look like this for me and if I want to brighten things up with accessories, then I always can.

One of my goals was to add more creamy off-white colors to replace the stark white I said good-bye to.

Here are more items for autumn palettes….


A spring giveaway

Now for some fun…a little Spring Box Giveaway.

Right after I discovered that I am a Vibrant Autumn last year, I did a giveaway of one of my nicest necklaces that was for cool-color ladies.

A reader from Canada won and loved her new accessory.  So this is a little of that, and a few new items to celebrate the refreshment of springtime.

The box contains two beautiful scarves no longer in my colors…one from Chico’s and one from JJill.

Here is the old me wearing this fun necklace of black, white and silver.

Note: Can you see the shadows this black jacket cast on my face?  The difference is very noticeable to “me in black vs. me as an autumn.”

But I digress…..

Spring giveaway

Also included is a brand new Kate Spade makeup bag from Dillard’s, and two full products from i-On, a new skincare line just for us (ladies 50+)

Their tag line says, “You’re not aging, You’re rusting!”

Just think IRON…these products are designed to remove iron naturally before it can cause skin rusting and to repair past damage.

I encourage you to read about their skincare at this Nordstrom link….I-on Skin Care….

Spring Giveaway

Also, a tube of the Chamonix Genucel Plant Stem Cell Therapy Eye Treatment for Bags and Puffiness.

These are the skincare products I have used daily for the past four years.

Spring Giveaway

The final product in my Spring Box Giveaway is from Trinny London, Lash 2 Brow Mascara + Brow Gel.

If you are like me, you use product on our brows whenever you put on makeup…this is one you will want to try!

So, there you have it…I know it leans toward ladies in cool colors, but the warm palettes may want to try the products and pass on the accessories.  Your choice!

If you want your name “literally” in the hat…then let me know below.  Make sure I have your email, so that I can reach out to the winner for an address for shipping.

I will announce the winner on Friday!  Super Easy to enter…just tell me in the comments if you want you name in!

I am excited to bless one of you with this box and hopefully put a smile on your face…..but until then make sure all of you…..
