Hey Ertsy people! This week, we are celebrating the Spring awakening with a journal of dreams I have for this beautiful season. Spring has been my favourite time for the very reason the world loves it – the sun and its warmth. Yes, when you’ve spent just way too long in the autumn wind, followed by the winter chills, snow and even the never-ending rain, you’re lying if you tell me that the sun is not the only thing you’re looking forward to. For a travel in style fanatic, it makes for the best pictures, too. Moreover, I’m the kind of person who is always fascinated by semiotics which is why my spring style signifies “awakening”.
The reason why I call this look the Spring Style Dreams is that of its significance. From leaves to the bugs, everyone breathes in this season of beauty. And when the sun basks in all its glory, I can’t help but be reminded on Wordsworth’s poem – ‘Lines Written in Early Spring’
“…To her fair works did Nature link
The human soul that through me ran;
And much it grieved my heart to think
What man has made of man. …”
And this is why, for me, spring is all about awakening, contemplating; about a positive future and about dreams that I can realise.
Even last year, in my first ever spring look – White Spring, I tried to explore the dreams of future in it. But well, this time, I went for the bold colours!
Oh, and just BTW, this shoot is absolutely unedited in any way whatsoever because there’s nothing like enjoying some things raw sometimes.:)
The Spring Style Look:
An A-line below-knee Red dress with 3/4 ruffle sleeves, customised by Samshek
A pair of Brown, Flat Gladiators
A Head accessory to accentuate the mind to the awakening *wink*
And, a light silk patch print scarf to play around with.
Usually, I like to keep a minimal make-up. However, for my spring style, I have a purple eye-shadow, a light eyeliner, and a nude shade of lipstick. The idea is to highlight the eyes as I go into the woods that are showing the green again while I’m still comfortable.
Well, just in case, you too are looking to customise an amazing dress like such to make the best out of this Spring, rush to Samshek now!
Till then, stay ertsy, have a positive, dreamy and happy spring, and be your own desire! xx
