Afternoon light

I’m pretty good at soaking up the afternoon sun, good at making the best out of it during long, unhurried walks, but I’m absolutely terrible at posing when the sun shines too bright. Even more so after a copious Easter lunch at our grandparent’s house, where no matter how much you try to eat, it’s never quite enough.

For that kind of afternoon I would have better picked a pair of overalls and a pair of sneakers, to at least feel comfortable while “rolling over” on our way home. But I had to go with the tightest & shortest skirt, and heels. The one good thing that came out of it is that I at least matched the small bouquet of white lilac we picked up from their garden. I am literally obsessed with lilac and having the entire city filled with it doesn’t help ^_^

Hope you had a wonderful week, the weekend is nearly here ♥ ♥ ♥

Black.

Do you happen to have that one extra-cozy sweater that appears to go with everything in your wardrobe and that you basically drag out of the closet whenever you get a chance? Well, I do (too). And it is this black, slightly oversized one that I can’t stop wearing although it is starting to look all fuzzy and lived in. All the more reasons to love it if you ask me ^_^ You must have figured out that this is the all-black look I’ve been talking about in my last post, and I absolutely love it, I think this would be my go-to uniform if spring days were all rainy and gloomy like today is. I have no problems ditching colors if the sun disappears. I am sorry that my posts have turned into weekly “notes” but I am currently trying to restore the balance in my life, which will hopefully translate to more appearances on the blog. Hope everyone is having a productive week ♥ ♥ ♥

Candy Colors

I have been wanting to shoot an all black outfit for the blog for quite a while now, but somehow, with all the gorgeous weather going on and all the blossoming flowers beautifying the city, it just didn’t seem appropriate. Instead, I chose to switch the focus on light colors and easy silhouettes, as they seem to intensify my happiness these days. Nothing like these long afternoon walks accompanied by gorgeous candy colors, messy buns and comfy sneakers. Hope you’re all having a great week so far, lots of love ♥ ♥ ♥

I See Fire

I’m not very good at finding that perfect balance to define my life, so I’m usually either running out of time for all the things I need to be doing, or I indulge in too many of those lazy days, making up for them eventually with less hours of sleep per night and a tighter schedule. But from time to time, I like to put everything on break and go away for a little while. If possible. This past weekend we visited our precious niece for the first time and the entire trip there was incredibly beautiful and soothing. That explains the longer absence on the blog, but despite missing it terribly, I still needed those few days to reset the equilibrium.

Other than that, I try to make the best out of this beautiful weather, I try to keep away from dark colors and I still love to wear my red lipstick together with my red hat. Hope everyone has a great week so far ♥ ♥ ♥

Yellow, like the sun

I love Sundays. I love waking up unhurried, taking my time before actually getting out of bed, knowing I don’t have to immediately start planning my schedule for the day. I love to enjoy my cup of coffee while reading a book or a magazine. I love to spend more time doing my hair and my make-up, even if they always end up looking somewhat imperfect. If I had to choose a single word to define the way I envision a perfect Sunday, that word would have to be serenity, or perhaps tranquility. Usually, I play along, choosing laid-back outfits and flats to go with the relaxed atmosphere of the weekend. But this time I craved for something else, something a little more feminine, a little more bright. And so I put on my yellow skirt, my favorite pair of heels and the gorgeous statement earrings I received from Persunmall, and it all fell into place right away. Hope you’re all enjoying a great week, thank you for reading ♥ ♥ ♥

Spring Fever

I love how every blog tells a unique story, how every voice hiding behind each and every one of them is so different in talking about distinct dreams, plans and aspirations. For me blogs are like books, with fewer lines and more pictures, with characters you can actually meet and become friends with. My blog is mostly about my style evolution. I try not to compare myself to others, I just want to grow, learn and become better than I was yesterday. I try not to encapsulate my qualities, nor my achievements in a box marked by a strict number of followers, but I do appreciate the company, each and every single person who chose to share this journey with me, in one particular way or another, on any given internet platform.

I love knowing I have friends scattered everywhere, and on days like yesterday, being able to actually meet them, even for a few brief moments, reminded me why I love having a blog in the first place. For me those are the best accomplishments, because my main goal is to live happily, surrounded by people who matter. I loved meeting you girls: Julie, Dorina & Criss. Happy weekend, everyone! ♥ ♥ ♥

N.Y.C.

It’s Monday morning, the sun is shining and I’ve got so much to do that I can’t help but feel super-energized. The fact that I had quite the perfect weekend (that included a girls night out, a Saturday afternoon picnic, and a lazy and rainy Sunday), may have something to do with this glorious state of mind I find myself in.

With spring closely approaching, I feel ready to add more colour to my wardrobe and this powdery pink sweatshirt felt like a perfect first step. I adore wearing it, nothing more comfortable and cool-looking if you ask me. And since I love the idea of contrast, I couldn’t help but pair my sporty sweatshirt with these gorgeous emerald earrings and the playful heart patterned tights that I received last week from Persunmall. They are the perfect statements to be added to dress up any given outfit, and I am super-pleased with my choices, I feel I’m going to wear them a lot. I wish you all a great start of the week and thank you for reading ♥ ♥ ♥
