April Favourites

I honestly cannot believe that April is almost over and that May is upon us. Time does fly by much quicker for my liking. I'm only comforted by the fact that most people feel the same way. Other than that, it's been a good month. Spring arrived in full force with it. A little bit of travelling took place, I got into wearing lighter hues again, I discovered some great series. 

Here's then what I've loved this April.

Happy Sunday!

I hope you've had a wonderful week! Mine had been pretty uneventful: doctors' appointments, French, and work. As per usual, it went by extremely fast for my liking. I never feel like I've got enough time to do all the things I should and would like to do. 
Now, the dreaded word *procrastination* rings in my ears, a reminder that there's always more time to be found. I plead guilty.
Well, seeing as I spend that much time procrastinating, I thought the least I could do, was share some of the articles and other enjoyable links that grabbed my attention this week.
Please share some of your own and let's procrastinate together!

Monday Shopping

Happy Monday!
From Left to Right: Zara Trousers, Zara Blouse, Asos Blouse, Sister Jane Shirt, Zara Skorts, Mango Shoes.

If you're anything like me, and Mondays are the bane of your existence for no apparent reason, other than that they start perfectly fine and end up miserable, then I'm sure you're going to need a pick-me-up today.
For me, it doesn't get any better than browsing online in the "new in" sections of my favourite clothing shops. It's true: I might end up being more fed up than I was to start with because I seem to be incapable of looking at clothes without wanting to buy them all. But unfortunately, that's impossible.  Which makes me ask the hardest question of all: "How do I narrow my wishlist down?"
 I've got no idea.  I just prioritise (somewhat). "How badly do I want this top?" "Would I want to wear it every single day if it was magic and it never became smelly or dirty?" "Do I need it?" "Will it fit in with the rest of my clothes?" "Will it make friends with them?"

By then, I'm bored of asking questions, and I've probably already bought the said item. I must have really, like, really wanted it.

Currently, I seem to be crushing on anything flare-sleeved or ruffled. I'm also tempted on buying a pair of blocky heeled ballerinas.

Here then are a few of my items on my current wishlist. Feel free to steal them. It means there'll be less left for me to waste my money on.
And please do share your own. I need to daydream and swoon some more.

A Spring Outfit

If you ask me, I'll say I hate summer. Spring is okay, but I much prefer autumn and winter.

Then, the first magnificent days arrive. The sun is high up on the sky; the light is almost sweeping away all the greyness settled in the city. How could I be asking for rain and cold when it's that bright outside? Well, I don't. Instead, I find myself enjoying the outdoors much more than my office-potato arse cares to admit. I will try to squeeze a small walk into my schedule whenever I can. The main reason, however that I like it when it's getting warmer is that I can finally store in the deepest corners of my shoe wardrobe, my humongous snow boots that I wear whenever the temperature drops below 5 degrees. I swear I'm not a hypochondriac: I just suffer from a syndrome of icy feet, which could potentially prove to be a great superpower but for now, it hasn't served any purpose whatsoever, other than giving me excuse to put on the previously mentioned boots whenever possible.

So yes I'm a happy clam when I can wear my Converse without having to wear five layers of socks. Lighter clothes are also generally more comfortable. I've yet to find anyone who is happier in a jumper than in a t-shirt. Although don't quote me on that because something tells me that come September I will praise the knitwear gods who bestowed upon us this beautiful garment. But I just love being able to move my hands freely, you know?

Spring weather in my mind equates with lighter colours as well. I mean I do love a good pastel combination in the winter but whereas wearing them, then, would be a cure for my blue mood, now it just feels right: putting them on and go prance around, soaking the sun.

My sister and I have made a habit of going out for coffee on Sunday morning. We will sit in our favourite coffeehouse, talk, laugh -okay, maybe also fight- and then walk around for a bit. Although I've got to admit that because we are early birds, we find ourselves in the company of families with small children and pensioners. We don't mind to be honest. There is an idyllic calmness in starting your Sunday before the buzz of brunch hour.

This outfit I loved, if I do say so myself. It was comfortable and bright and light-blue is one of my favourite colours. I've also started wearing a brooch on my jeans to add some pizazz and character to an otherwise simple outfit.

I just hope I'm not challenging the weather gods to ruin this beautiful weather.
