Lilac

How is spring treating you these days? Here, the sun is lovely, I had half a day for outdoor activities and I enjoyed every ray of sunshine (a little bit of tan would not be that bad, wink). I love the lilac flower, not just the color, but the smell of the street where people have chosen lilac for their garden. This is a great idea for the front of the building where you live, don’t you think so?

The weather forecast is awful for today, storm and heavy rains, but until now it is perfect. If the rain comes, it’s ok with me, I am planning a bar theater night. Enjoy your day!

Opinions

What about stockings and open toe pump or sandals? There was a time when everybody was saying: “Never stockings and sandals!“. I am still one of those persons. But there’s no rule without exception, so if I were to wear such short  grey or beige or burgundy stockings (and I have a lot of them, I told you my obsession with Calzedonia, I even avoid now driving near the shop on my way to the office not to be tempted to stop) like Lily Cole and a crazy colored dress, having a coffee in Paris or Rome, wink, I would dare to have my sandals on, if not, no way! For example, I will never wear long classic black stockings with sandals. I chose this photo because it entirely represents my image of this combination. There is no other way, for me, of course, to use stockings with sandals. So, I am still a classic or just normal?

In my garden

I wish I had a lot of flowers in my garden. When you read garden, please think about wardrobe and when you read flowers think about dressesEven if we had some bad weather this Easter (a lot of rain, but warm enough for the flower print dresses and leggings), I was not unhappy. My mood is usually depending on the weather outside, but this time I did not care about the rain, I enjoyed my long and rainy weekend, wink.

I hope that all of you who celebrated Easter this last weekend had a marvelous time.

Daydreaming

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now this is why I want to live in Amsterdam or in a small town in Netherlands…kind of cold though, but if I can ride a bike on my way to work, dressed in a tulle skirt and have a basket full of flowers and cakes or maybe some butter croissants, I am happy to wear more layers. But until then, I’ll pay a visit to the market, buy some flowers for my home and admire my purple (of course) tulle skirt in the closet!

And speaking about dreams, I have another one: to visit Toulouse Lautrec Museum in Albi, Southern France, that was recently retraced and guests over 1000 works, pictures, lithographs, drawings, preparatory studies, including all 31 posters of the artist.

Do you have a dream town, city or place that you would really like to visit? I wish you a wonderful day and don’t forget: a girl is allowed to dream, wink!

À la campagne…

Happy Wednesday! I could not help myself and decided to share another pink and purple post! But this time is more about how I would like my Easter table and surroundings to look like, not about clothes!

I could never imagine that an old vase would look so great when you choose the right flowers for it. Also, I have a crush on those vintage gaslights and on everything that has the same shape, so, of course, this table  draw my attention, it is so splendid even if the most important accessorize are the flowers and their colors. You know what I like even more? The simplicity of these beautiful places and the fact that one little accessorize can completely transform the place like those pink petals in the old fountain.

And last but not least, the dessert for Easter: I decided to bake my first carrot cake. After a decade, wink, of cheesecake, this year I want something else and the carrot cake seamed like the best choice. Don’t you think so?
