Spring is in the Air

It’s that time of year when the shops are full of new stuff, ditto fashion mags, and style websites but the weather is not necessarily obliging!

I find the start of a season the ideal time to have a snoop around the shops and on-line to see what’s new, and to decide what I love.  I then check the back of my closet to see what I already have!  One of the benefits of developing your own style is that your taste remains pretty constant.  (Conversely one of the downsides can be wasting hard earned cash on items that are so similar to your existing wardrobe that no-one else but you can tell the difference!)  Follow this advice to maximise on your existing items and minimise mistakes 😉

Some summer footwear that caught my eye.  The clog style is perfect for warmer days before a pedicure becomes mandatory 😉

A quick rummage through my summer wardrobe items revealed a few ‘looks’ from previous seasons which are eminently suitable for recycling with a few new additions as the weather warms up.

White is always a good idea!

Aqua is perfect for this season – the jeans are 5+ years old…Cost per Wear = 😀 !!

Grey and stripes are perfect trans-seasonal pieces

You will probably gather from these pictures that my style is really very simple.  My standby pieces are jeans and long sleeve tees styled with scarves, belts, jewelry, bags and footwear…boots at the moment!   I’m a real accessories gal as these are the items that make for a really versatile wardrobe when styled with basics.

In my next post I’ll be posting more style tips and ideas to freshen up your look for Spring.  Meanwhile click on the Styling Ideas link for daily updates from my sets created on Polyvore and follow me on Instagram for OOTD.

I hope that you have enjoyed reading my new look blog.  Thank you for all your likes and comments.  Sarah x

Baby Boomer speaks for itself, yes I am a woman of a certain age ;) Why Badass? I have Rock & Roll in my DNA, coupled with some Punk Attitude and a (Lovin) Spoonful of Hippie Chic. Altogether BABB ;O The blog is not intended to be age specific, or indeed age appropriate! It is more about my style philosophy. The blog is to help girls and women of all ages to become more confident in expressing who they are through the way they dress. Mine are style tips and tricks based on years of styling, and an extensive knowledge of the fashion industry. My shopping advice is suitable for those with a limited budget, those who are strapped for cash, and for the lucky ones who have cash to splash. Personally I mix it up, marrying high street with high end to achieve my unique look. I hope that you will enjoy my new blog, Sarah x
