Sometimes words speak louder than patterns. Whether you're making a statement about gender issues or declaring your love for rosé season, wear your verbiage on your swimsuit, key chain, and sweatshirt.
Edna St. Vincent Millay once said, "April comes like an idiot, babbling and strewing flowers." I personally have nothing against strewn flowers — in fact, I wish I could keep fresh cut flowers strewn about my apartment all damn week. An easier way of creating this aesthetic is investing in a floral scented candle. After all, for us idiots, spring is about FLOWERS. Tulips, roses, violets, peonies... I'll take the lot, in soy wax and essential oil form.
Oh, how the tune changes when you fall in love with someone who's obsessed with skiing, fishing, and the great outdoors in general. One starts eyeing Tevas, Danner hiking boots (Reese wore them, after all), and all things Patagonia. And yet there is to be found a subtle style to this way of dressing for the al fresco occasion... Do throw-back with the colors you choose. Do go for the unisex look. Do revel in the fact that your boyfriend thinks you look hot in a baseball cap and puffer.
