Not far from here

Topshop black cami, ASOS pleated midi skirt, Windsor Smith sandals, Karen Walker sunglasses, Alexander Wang Marion bag

So I’m sitting here, with the rain softly tapping on my window, the whistle of the wind occasionally making its presence known. Spring, in more ways than you could imagine, has not quite been the mecca of sunshine, and pretty pastel petals that I had envisioned. Instead of staring out at this melancholy darkness, I’m thinking further forward, to twirling around in circles in a pretty pleat skirt, ice cream in hand, sandals on my feet, and sunglasses firmly in place.

I finally managed to get my hands on an Alexander Wang ‘marion’ bag, which instead of the creamy eggshell tone I had envisioned, turned out to be a rather lacklustre minty green. As I patiently wait for the summer, I’m also patiently waiting to pick it up from the leather care specialist, dyed a most reliable shade of black. Sometimes life is just better in black and white.

Get the look:

    How devastating for spring to come but for the weather to not follow! Hopefully the weather looks up for you soon! At least you have your outfits sorted haha

    Here’s to hoping the weather turns around. I could so see you in that combo. Bummer about the bag but cool that you’re getting it dyed. Looking forward to see how it turns out!

    Ugh this weather is ridiculous! I was wearing that Topshop cami just on Monday (okay, fine under a cardi) but now it is back to thermals and four cups of piping hot tea.

    I’m so jealous – spring is my favourite time of year! On the other hand, fall is not so bad either and we’re having rather lovely Indian summer ๐Ÿ™‚
