Isn’t there just something about the first true weeks of spring (we’re talking about weather, here — not official solstice dates) that makes you want to dress in an especially girlie fashion? I mean, we’ve spent months under bulky, drab layers — especially this winter, for crying out loud — and when it’s finally warm enough to shed them, we want light, airy fabrics, lighter colors, and pretty patterns.
That’s probably why two of our favorite trends this spring are so decidedly feminine: When it comes to clothing, we’re in love with the full, swingy, boldly, brightly patterned skirts we’re seeing all over Philly’s boutiques, so we put together a page to show you a lovely sampling of what’s out there. And when it comes to accessories, we can’t get enough of these delicate, sweet, nature-inspired designers we’re seeing everywhere we turn. And hey, we’re all in need of a little Mother’s Day inspiration these days, right? For either giving gifts, or hinting at the ones you’d like.
