Minxes: We have arrived! This past weekend ushered in the first glorious day of Spring 2015. The time for light colored clothing, lace, and flowers in hair is upon us.
For our first post of spring we have chosen this exquisite romper by Ark & Co. In celebration of the season we have enhanced the look with a wreath of flowers upon our lovely model’s head.
Lace romper and flowers in hair create an almost bridal feeling, and don’t we all fall in love with spring? This magical change of seasons elicit a feeling of such deep love. It feels as if spring is the bridegroom of our souls.
This, of course, brings to mind Aaron Kramer’s poem “Prothalamium.”
Come, all you who are not satisfied
as ruler in a lone, wallpapered room
full of mute birds, and flowers that falsely bloom,
and closets choked with dreams that long ago died!
Come, let us sweep the old streets–like a bride;
sweep out dead leaves with a relentless broom;
prepare for Spring, as though he were our groom
for whose light footstep eagerly we bide.
We’ll sweep out shadows, where the rats long fed;
sweep out our shame–and in its place we’ll make
a bower for love, a splendid marriage-bed
fragrant with flowers aquiver for the Spring.
And when he comes, our murdered dreams shall wake;
and when he comes, all the mute birds shall sing.
What Does a Minx Wear with a Romper?
The romper is such an inherently fun item of clothing. It echos back to both the play-suits of our childhoods and the spectacular disco outfits from the 70s and our imaginations.
Rompers come in all different fabric types and in a full range of levels of formality. Depending on how these elements are arranged a Minx could garden in one and just as easily attend a cocktail party in another!
Chelsea Crew We Love You
Chelsea Crew heels keep consistently hitting the mark this spring. The color palate is both now and nostalgic, as are the lines of the shoes. Both vegan and non-vegan Minxes can be sure to find the perfect shoe when it comes to Chelsea Crew.
These powdery blue heels give our romper just the right amount of structure while the cutout detailing lightens the look and mirrors the lace of the romper.
As for Necks and Lips
Here again, we see the lush pop of color on the lip lighting up the whole look while still keeping it really fresh.
A delicate gold necklace and ring warm up this look while keeping it classy.
Now that Spring has Sprung
Our lives are in the process of picking up speed. With the beginning of spring comes that renewed momentum of life.
Let’s all remember to take a moment to stop and admire the cherry blossoms, to feel the warm breeze against our skin.
Let us all romp: with or without the aid of this fabulous lace romper for we have made it out of winter!
