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! ♥ ♥ ♥

Spring Fever 01

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 ♥ ♥ ♥

Happiness

At the beginning of this year I decided to go easy on the resolutions, so much so that I ended up not having any planned for 2014, I was never good at sticking to them anyway. The only wish I had for myself was to relax more and just be happy. Happy as in finding reasons to smile in even the smallest of things, every single day, no matter what. Giving my past tendency to over-think, overstress and worry about everything, this little exercise of happiness helped tons in improving my general mood, in made me appreciate it all at a different level and I learned to be grateful for every single moment, with all the good and the bad.

My Go To Outfit

I don’t know what kind of impact this past week (that seem to be made mostly out of rainy and gloomy days) had on you, but I for one drew away from everything and chose to barely leave the house. As a consequence, I believe I grew too accustomed to wearing pajamas all day ^_^ because on Friday, when the sun finally showed its face, I didn’t feel like putting anything too fancy on. After half an hour spent studying my closet and trying on different outfits, I did what I always do: I picked up my favorite garments and put together what I like to call my go-to-outfit. And while it may not be spectacular, it is what I like to wear on a daily bases. Now, I didn’t even plan to take pictures for the blog, but we ended up taking advantage of the beautiful weather.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Lots of hugs and enjoy your Sunday evening ♥

The Promise of Spring

The weather has been particularly nice over the past few weeks, but the 1st of March still got me super-excited. Nothing can beat the promise of spring, a town brimming with flowers and a day dedicated to celebrate it all, with cake and more flowers of course. This past Friday I also became an auntie to sweet little Emma, who I cannot wait to meet and hold in my arms. So, all the more reasons to feel super-happy and excited for this new season. Don’t mind that I welcomed spring dressed in black and gray, the milkmaid braids, pink lipstick and the touch of lace assured the transition between seasons, at least for me.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Here’s to an equally beautiful March! ♥ ♥ ♥
