My first post of 2018 is coming a bit late, actually a whole lot lately. 2017 has been a year of new experiences, one being the genesis of this blog. 2018 started off on a high note as well, but we all have our downs, don’t we? I am going through one of those phases right now and it doesn’t look great down here. No, I am not going to steer this blog post away from fashion but going to make it a little different.
Winter has come and gone and Spring is here. A lot of festivals are celebrated in India to mark the coming of spring and it is indeed one of the most beautiful times of the year. And why shouldn’t it be? It resonates with philosophical ideas of Rejuvenation, Renewal, and Regrowth. I have learned it the hard way that, if we are hurting, we should let ourselves; but we should also pick ourselves up until we have seen the full picture of the glory of spring that we have been longing for.
Most times we are so caught up in our own world, our phones and our problems that we almost always forget to give ourselves a break. How about just taking a step back and rejuvenating our real spirits?
The season of renewal is at our doorstep; Let’s not beat a dead horse over mere new year resolutions, but let’s vow to renew ourselves to do better and better in life.
Every situation that we find ourselves in is caused by us. This may sound scary, but it is the truth. However, the good news is that the more we are willing to take responsibility for, the more freedom we have. Only we have the power to change the things we are going through and regrow like a lettuce that sprouts a whole new head after being chopped.
Flowers, a symbol of freshness and rejuvenation are synonymous with spring. If there is one staple/happening spring trend then it is got to be florals. The upcoming warm seasons will find designers and brands experimenting with vivid floral canvas artwork in every color.
I’ve tried to add a little drama to the narrative of these pictures – transcending the gloom of winter to a vibrant spring. The maxi-dress in a burnt orange shade with the ornate floral print made it a perfect choice for the mood that I was trying to set for this post.
This beautiful acoustic track by Tall Heights, an electro-folk duo based in Boston, is one of my top picks currently.
