April Flowers

Slowly but surely the snow here in NL is melting & the temperature increasing. Unfortunately that was not the case on Easter Sunday, when my festive outfit (centred around a peach chiffon dress) was considered too weather-inappropriate to be borne. Perhaps May will better suit it, & it shall end up here on the blog after all.

This morning before my German lessons, I decided to photograph the outfit I did wear for Easter: florals to make up for the lack of actual flowers blooming; my faux fur Gorilla jacket to keep me toasty warm & add some texture. Paired with an old pair of salmon-coloured Zara trousers, brown/black crossbody bag, Michael Kors ballet flats, & accessorized simply with my Michael Kors Gold Chronograph watch. Comfortable, but still stylish; & perfect for a family supper.

My Easter comprised of a too-early morning (I was childishly excited for Easter treats), then an afternoon of cooking/baking some vegan dishes with dear Mom. In the evening we had a family supper of 17 crammed around a long-but-not-long-enough table, while entertainment was provided by my favourite inexhaustible 3 year old singing Christmas carols & "playing Halloween" (her self-appointed "costume" being my Gorilla jacket). On the whole, the day was nice & simple. 

This week I'm back to my vigorous study schedule, trying to cram in as much as possible before heading off to Nova Scotia next week. As long as the weather cooperates I'll get in a few more outfit shoots before I go. Until then, I'd love to know what you think of this look! Your heart-felt comments are what keeps this blog going after all :)

I was wearing:
Floral blouse - Zara
Trousers - Zara (old)
Faux fur jacket - Banana Republic
Ballet Flats - Michael Kors
Gold Chronograph Watch - Michael Kors

  10. That bag is so gorgeous!!It goes so well with the outfit, the pants are such a pretty colour and looks so great styled with that floral top! Nova Scotia should be fun, I would love to travel to other places in Canada!

  11. Love your outfit sweetie!! Adore the colour of your trousers and the floral blouse compliments them beautifully! Glad to hear you had a nice easter my dear! :)

    Take care,Daniella xox

  12. First, I love your tattoo! Such a cute spot for it, and lovely text.
    Second, I love florals so your blouse is perfect.
    Third, you always accessorize the outfits SO well, so no complaints here! ;) That bag looks great btw.

    Your dinner sounds pretty much like with my family on every festive occation; it's my mum and stepdad, 4 adult children, their boyfriends/girlfriend/spouse and two boys under 5 yrs. So that's 12 and quite a crowd - can't believe you have 5 more people :D The 3 year old in your family sounds the sweetest thing ever.

    Thank you for the comment Shawna. Yep, it sure is great to have a handy man around. Except one detail, it took him almost 2 weeks to start putting the sideboard together and when he finally did (well I helped a little) it took something like 6 hours instead of 60 min that the instructions say. Gotta love him though hehe ♥

    and p.s. perhaps this comforts you: It snowed in Munich too on easter and it was very cold!!! I wore my down jacket...

  15. Once apon a time Coco Chanel said: “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” You know, I think you are a great example...Absolutely fabulous! :) And I like the fact that your outfits are even more inovative with time. This one is insane (in a good way, of course). I love it! :)

    P.s. your tatto is simply gorgeous...I'm dreaming about tatto for a while. Tell me, is painful?

  16. Wow amazing look. Love the floral prints and I can see the snow going away! Ah, I had way too many treats last weekend but life is for that haha! :) I didn't know you had a tattoo, it's so pretty. I want one small like some nice words too in my arm like the one that Freja Beha has, let's see when! Hey, the tote was a normal one which I just draw the moustache so you can do something like that with any print/drawing you like ;)

  17. I am in love with your floral blouse. I'm on such a print & patterns kick lately!

  18. Thank you for your sweet comment! Love your look! Super cute blouse!

  24. I LOVE this look! I'd wear pretty much all your clothes. haha Those pants are similar to some that I have on my Ruche wishlist but they keep selling out before I get to even close in on my size. I love high waisted pants and you've paired them with such a beautiful floral blouse.
    I also love the sneak shot of your foot tattoo. :)
    Oh, and your Easter sounds like it was lovely and very family filled. I loved the part about the 3 year old singing Christmas carols. ahaha!

  25. You look beautiful! I love this outfit... the colors, the floral print, the shoes. I would always wake up super early for Easter when I knew there were treats waiting for me :) Even now my mom still sends me packages with goodies and I can't open them fast enough!

    Really like your tattoo, the font is beautiful and it's in a really unique spot!
