Officially, my favorite season of the year has started. When I am writing this down, it is only 5°C. However, a girl can dream that pretty soon, there will be plenty of sunshine to enjoy a little picnic on the grass and a bike ride early in the morning. For a few more days, my wardrobe will have to include sweaters, hoodies, and scarves. Nevertheless, in a week or two, the warm weather will probably take us by surprise and we will toss our winter clothes away and wear something spectacular to celebrate it.

The pandemic has changed our perception of fashion. It no longer means madly following the trends, being addicted to fast fashion, or relentlessly chasing the next new thing. It is about the ability to be creative enough to find beautiful things stuck somewhere in our closets and make them work in a new way. It is about respect for the environment, sustainability in the fashion business, and a closer relationship with vintage and pre-owned clothing. Thanks to my friend's recommendation I started watching the Australian TV series Offspring. I love the main protagonist - Nina and her sense of style. I think it is going to have a big impact on how I will be dressing this spring, as I am a true bohemian at heart. I love boho dresses, the ease of the west coast aesthetic, boots in the summer, and the nostalgia of the seventies. Therefore, two brands that inspired me lately are Masscob and Natalie Martin.

Masscob is a fashion brand from Spain launched by Marga Massanet and Jacobo Cobian. Before I go any further, I want to stress that this is not a sponsored post. I could afford it, I would like to own all the clothes from their latest collection. The designs speak to me because they are timeless, sophisticated, and they have a vintage feel. I can easily see myself wearing them all year long. My favorite pieces are the wide Elmo pants, Bitti Jumpsuit, Pietra Top, and Davia Dress. If my summer trip to Madeira happens, I will pack just those 4 items and shoes in my suitcase, nothing else!

Natalie Martin has instantly charmed me with her easy-going, bohemian designs. She is based in LA but sources and manufactures her clothes in Bali. I like that her designs are understated but at the same time, make you look spectacular during brunch with friends, as well as on the luxurious trip to the French Riviera. She values the idea of pure comfort but also natural elegance. There are lightness and respect for craftsmanship so deeply rooted in this brand.

The last 15 months have been quite unpredictable, but one thing is certain. After the never-ending winter, spring will follow. This time I will try not to buy too many new things. Instead, my purchases will be carefully curated and mindfully selected. This spring must bring long-awaited changes!!!
