When I was a little girl, one of my favorite questions to ask people around me was the following: what color would you choose, if you would be forced to pick one hue only, to wear for the rest of your life? My picks have long changed ever since, but at the moment, I would have a hard time choosing between white (which I know it’s not exactly a color) and blue, all kinds of blue, to mix and match and to never get tired of.
For me, summer means letting go of everything that’s complicated, consuming, overwhelming. So this would be my portrait during a hot, hot day: hair allowed to breath in its natural state; as little make-up on as possible (although I’m still addicted to black eyeliner, I should definitely try on other colors); easy and breathable clothes, preferably in light fabrics and pastel shades, but I’m not one to shy away from black either; comfy shoes, if they’re pretty all the better; a beautiful hat and a pair of sunnies to top it all off.
This outfit may not be glamorous and all, but it is totally me because I love to feel at ease when I’m soaking up all the beauty surrounding me. The park is incredible this time of the year, nothing like walking it hand in hand with my hubby, talking about nothing and everything, listening to the birds chirping, reminiscing over childhood memories, making plans for the months to come.
I always believed happiness is made of small things, but during summer is when I am constantly reminded of it. Wishing you a beautiful weekend, lots of hugs and lots of kisses. Thanks for reading ♥ ♥ ♥
This is the story of the pretty little black dress that I planned on wearing for New Year’s Eve. Sadly, the package I’ve been so eagerly awaiting for the entire month of December got lost, but here I am, five months later, getting to actually wear the dreamy dress on a rainy spring Monday that completely felt like a Sunday.I guess that feeling was amplified by the fact that I got to walk the busy streets dressed like I was going to attend a party, when in reality I only got out of the house to take some pictures and buy some groceries ^_^
I adore the dress though, and I cannot wait to wear it on a more fitted occasion, with heels and all.
I hope everyone fully enjoys this last week of May! Thank you for reading, much love ♥ ♥ ♥
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 ♥ ♥ ♥
It wasn’t that long ago when we took these photos, but the weather felt just slightly cold, instead of freezing cold like it feels today. If there’s a color out there that makes me want to take a break from all the black and forget all about the gloomy days of fall, that color is definitely cobalt blue. My wardrobe has plenty of it already, but I just know I’m going to be adding more to it in time. The only thing I regret about this romper is the fact that it didn’t arrive during summer, so I could have made the most out of it. I can’t believe it’s hot tea weather already. Can’t wait to buy the first scented candles for fall this week-end. Before I go, I just wanted to send out a huge thank you for all of the beautiful comments that accompanied the previous post. Love ♥
After three whole days stuck in bed, with a terrible flu and everything hurting, I’m sitting in front of my laptop , trying to find my words, but I guess I am still a little bit at loss. I feel the ideas floating around my brain but I can’t possibly find a way to put them together. But I will say this much: I’m loving the new white blazer I received in the mail last week, courtesy of Kristine’s Collection and cannot wait to wear and photograph the other gift as soon as the the next sunny and warm day comes. I’ll leave you with the pictures, while I will stick with my tea for a little while longer. Much love and thank you for reading. Have a great weekend, guys!
Once upon a time pink used to be my favourite color. I had my fair share of pink butterflies spread across the room, pink plushy toys filling the empty shelves, pink candles, pink bottles of perfume, pink clothes, you get the idea. And although the years passed by and my taste in clothes (and colors) changed considerably, it doesn’t come as a total surprise that some people still see that pink obsessed little girl hiding inside of me. Which brings me to today’s outfit, based on a pair of dusted pink shorts, which I honestly had trouble styling. Why? Because I feel with pink it’s so very easy to take the wrong turn, that’s why I still prefer it but in small amounts. I admire the girls and women alike, who are able to make it look so grown-up, but deep down inside of me, I know pink will forever be associated with my wonderful childhood/adolescence.
