PERFECT SLIDING INTO THE WEEKEND

PERFECT SLIDING INTO THE WEEKEND
































It's not that I don't like rain but it no longer adds this element of unexpected to everyday chores, it's all about luck these days. I never realized an umbrella will happen to be among my indispensable essentials but you never stop learning, being inspired and annoyed all in one. At first I thought I'd escape the neighbourhood but before I knew it it kept raining throughout the county. It is really about luck. And for once I'd love to be able to remove my make up using cleansing wipes and a light liquid formula instead of having it smudged all over my face. It takes a bit of skill getting it wiped to achieve socially acceptable aesthetics.  

You need advice on old, used and unusual? Hey, welcome! Don't even take your shoes off! I have been thinking about starting a spring series about that many vintage, antique and curiosity shops around my area to help make those decorating decisions much easier and get inspired myself. I spend the majority of strolling down the streets on searching for unexpected nooks in between stores, bars and flower stalls. There's a lot going on on the streets of my town that intrigues, comes out of nowhere offering what once worked and still can. Just to warn you: this experience may be life changing.

All this practice and I may loose the position of Nadia's stylist. Am I sad? A little. Am I thrilled? More than a lot! Just recently I moved her dress rack low enough so she could get her hands on it and keep encouraging her to choose whatever she likes (therefore not too many Pre-School Boutique posts). She doesn't plan, doesn't potter, wants everything chosen in an instant to look fabulous there and then. When my powers are restricted creating something herself changes the whole perspective. It may be a little odd, a tad against the weather (cardigans always in rotation), a whole different way of looking at fashion but the trick is to feel good in any combination of fabric and I'm totally enjoying the vigorous growth of little fashionista. What's changed? She skips layers and bland colours altogether, most definitely turns to wearing the same thing over and over again. As she's become very hesitant to new arrivals I have decided to always seek her advice in online shopping and stop buying things on my lonesome shopping trips. The importance of finishing touches on the other hand will get figured out somehow.     

Have an awesome weekend!

  1. I love the black-and-white photo of you and Nadia together! And I think it's great that she's picking out her own clothes, even though I'm sure it's a little sad for you that she's growing up so fast. She is so cute. :)
