Can we talk about how bipolar this weather has been lately? I wake up and it’s freezing. But by midday, my face is melting off. Not to mention the random rain showers that ruin all my plans for looking cute. I just can’t keep up (and neither can my immune system).
So I’m super excited that warmer days are on the horizon. Spring is finally here and this season is all about new beginnings with a fresh wardrobe to match, am I right? But a complete closet overhaul is hardly practical nor is it necessary to give your look an upgrade. I personally love taking advantage of pieces I already have and finding bold ways to spruce them up. Creating a new wardrobe with your seasonal staples is as easy as incorporating a few add-ons, like stylish pins.
Pins are my go-to accessory. There is literally a pin for everything, from your favorite black girls who rock (ahem, Beyonce’) to expressive sayings like #blackgirlmagic, which is a constant reminder to sprinkle a little of my God-given charm on everything I do. Not only do pins help you personalize your look but they can serve as the ultimate conversation starter. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve attached a cute pin onto a bomber jacket only to have it spark a convo about where I got it from and the story behind it. And what’s great is you don’t have to choose just one item to accessorize. Anything from jeans to jackets can be decorated in your own unique way. Need something elegant? Go with a glamorous crystal pin. Looking for something a little more playful? Try a wild and colorful pin. The options are limitless.
