Purple Blossoms

[Shirt : Romwe][Shorts : H&M][Heels : Queen][Sunnies : H&M][Bag : MPT]

Theoretically, day-offs are meant to give you a break from work. But in reality, it only means taking a break from one work to do another. In my case, I spent the entire day cleaning up my room from what seems like an eternal mess piled up after another; overflowing closet, used-up clothes hanging everywhere, mails and magazines to sort out, shoes to dust... pretty much everything in my to-do list that was put on hold for weeks came crawling out. So much for a peaceful rest. Ugh. Take it from me people, procrastination paybacks like a bitch sometimes - don't wait 'till it bites you in the ass.

As it is, I thought I'd be able to take some selfies yesterday. Instead, I picked up Penguin from work after my household tasks and had dinner out (as documented on instagram). Well you know... at least after a tiring, and proudly speaking, very productive day,  it ended quite well.

As for the photos - they were actually taken some few days ago. I couldn't help but feel ladylike in this floral shirt because it's so feminine and dainty (and I swear I can count just how many times I have associate myself with those adjectives). But let's be truthful ... sometimes spring blooms bring out the girliness in all of us - me included. So why not complete the look with some pastels and a neat pair of heels eh? If only once in a while.

Daydreaming of Coachella

[Skirt and hat : Forever 21][Top : Cotton On][Heels : Steve Madden][Sunnies : H&M][Bag : MPT]

In the chaos that's called my life right now, I'm imagining myself surrounded by palm trees, basking underneath the blazing southern California sun, listening to loud music and all the clamor of festival goers. It's all where I want to be - please take me to Coachella Valley! Or if not, leave me alone to daydream away in my festival-ready attire.

Sun. Trees. Flowers. Gypsies. Music.

Dozing off now.

Citrine and Sapphire

[Top : H&M][Skirt : Forever 21 - similar here][Jacket : Cotton On][Shoes : Local Store][Bag : MPT][Sunnies : Local Store]

When you live in a city that won't let you decide what is a proper outfit to wear given its climatic disorder, you definitely will develop that "irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day". As is my case every single day. Certainly I don't just dress to impress, but what I fear most is not being able to document my outfit to share with you on this blog. This jacket has been hanging in my wardrobe for months now and hasn't seen the first light of day because it's only too thin to actually shield me from the cold winds. Of course I wouldn't want to be caught off guard when it is seemingly warm but not - as it has happened to me too often. But finally... finally... the perfect sunny day to wear it has arrived; the kind that doesn't really prompt you to put on a bikini and head straight to the beach, but the one that actually let's you dress transeasonal.

Talk about a sartorial state of limbo - I think I've been on this transitional stage for ages now.

But... in the context of having a beautiful day, I'd rather not ruin in by ranting, nor make this post a chore by trying to write more when there really is nothing else I can think of saying more. My mind is on chill/rest mode so let's just pick up on the next post where I leave you right now. Until my next!

Good night!

P.S. Get this skirt still available on my pop up store!
