January is certainly not my favorite month of the year, it's cold, its dark, and summer seems so far away. However, January gives me time to catch up on life's little things that I never seem to have time to do..like cleaning out a closet or reorganizing my kitchen pantry. I catch up on my magazine reading, from December...when all those magazines that arrived in the mail ended up in a pile on my desk, because I was too busy to read them. It's also a good time to plan a summers vacation! The thing I love to do most, however, in the quiet days of January, is to curl up beside the fire with a cup of tea, and do research on Spring fashion, trending colors and design, and start looking for, and ordering supplies and materials for my jewellery designs.
So I thought you may want a little preview of what Spring...in the world of fashion and design,.... is all about this year.

Poppy Red is a true red, which will be seen in fashion for Spring, 2013.
I was recently in the women's shop, White House Black Market, where the color Dusk Blue was very prominent I loved it so much, that I bought a great pair of jeans in this color. I will probably wear them with blush, beige or linen shades and of course white. However, on my brave days, I might add a shot of mandarin orange with my patent orange or Nectarine sandals!
My most favorite color out of all these fresh exciting colors for Spring, is the Grayed Jade, so I will be looking for something new in this color to add to my wardrobe this season.
How about you...what is your favorite color for this Spring?
