Sunshine Stroll


It seems like Friday really was Winter's last hurrah. It's been a beauty of a weekend, with sunshine to make up for the minimally warm temperatures. Mom & I went out this morning for a little post-errand stroll, which was enjoyable if not great for photos. The sun was so bright it really makes my skin appear ghastly white. Nonetheless I've been all smiles all day.

It was one of those mornings where you stare blankly at your closet for a solid hour. Time-pressed & in pure frustration, I finally went with my cognac leather shorts, paired with a relatively ancient printed trapeze top (tucked in). Stella & Dot earrings, H&M bangle, H&M x Versace medallion bracelet, Karen Walker Number Six sunnies, & my black Michael Kors ballet flats. Et voila :)

I've another exam coming up this week, so hopefully I'm able to tear myself away from sunshiney outings long enough to cram. I'm just getting back into my running routine & it feels so good I'm finding it hard to sit still for long. I've also been on a huge cooking kick (used this Chef Chloe recipe for vegan Mexicali Sliders today & I highly recommend trying it!).

That's all for now. Hope you've all had a fabulous weekend & thanks for reading! :)





I was wearing:
Belted leather shorts - Vila, via ASOS
Purple printed top - Le Chateau (2006)
Chantilly Lace earrings - Stella & Dot
Cream + Gold Bangle - H&M
Number Six Sunnies - Karen Walker
Gold Medallion bracelet - Versace x H&M
Ballet Flats - Michael Kors

  13. Wow, it suddenly got gorgeous out there! Haha, love these photos :)
    You definitely chose a chic outfit. I love those leather shorts! I'm tempted to try a high waisted pair now.
    Good luck with exams! I know, I have the hardest time studying for anything now that it's so gorgeous outside.
    Also, thanks for your last comment. Really appreciate you taking the time to read my long-winded post! Haha, and I totally agree with what you said. Its so important not to just blindly take what the authority says as truth.

  37. Okay, dann machen wir das jetzt so: ab sofort also auf deutsch ;-) Wenn du etwas nicht verstehen solltest, dann kannst du mich ja ganz einfach fragen!
    Die Ledershorts gefallen mir wirklich sehr gut und auch das gemusterte Top sieht total schön aus! Und das letzte Foto, auf dem du springst, ist wirklich super geworden!
    Ich hoffe auch, dass der Winter bald weg ist, bei uns in München war zwar schon Frühling - im März war es mal für zwei Wochen recht warm - aber seit Anfang April ist es eigentlich nur am Regen und hat so zwischen 2-9°, nicht so schön...
