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 ♥ ♥ ♥

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 ♥ ♥ ♥
