The Children of the Sun Began to Awake

28.3.11

Current theme: The Florist

Hey dolls! Can you believe the first quarter of the year has been zapped up in the blink of an eye? In precisely 3 weeks, undergrad will be done and dusted, and it feels awesomelicious! 

Winter prevails. That short stint a week ago of sunlight and mild days was nothing more than that…a stint. I’m a bit fed up with winter gear to be honest and my skin has been feeling suffocated. Throwing caution to the wind, I've spent the past week living in skirts and dresses. Wore this floral print dress yesterday, layered with some leggings beneath and a jumper atop…hey, I said I’m fed up, not out of my mind. I was able to move a bit more freely and didn’t have to do the whole stripping off layer upon layer jig everytime I went indoors someplace. Win win situation. 

How were your weekends? I barely got some shut eye with the show at my uni but I'm pleased with the way things turned. Also helped style a creative yesterday, shot by  the very talented Alice Xue. I can't wait to see the finished photos.  

Did you live by candlelight in honour of earth hour?

Love this funky getup lady. Wow, you're so close to closing a major chapter in your life. I really hope you enjoy your last days at Uni. For Earth Hour had I been home of course I would have been out and about with candles but I was at a house warming. My house was completely dark but also empty. Hope you're able to share photos from the project you styled. Have a good week!

I did turned off my lights, when suddenly my dad turned them on again. Sigh.

I love the mixture of prints and textures. I'm looking for similar bag. I just love the semi-casual look of satchel bags.

Tastes Eclectic Fashion said...

YES to throwing caution to the wind and dressing for better weather. Also yes for being somewhat sane and layering. Haha.

Nothing wrong with breaking out the summer wardrobe when a you see a few rays outside, especially when you look this great!

You're so sweet! I feel really pampered by the lovely nickname you use to speak to us, "dolls".

The weather has not warmed up yet in NYC but that hasn't stopped me from wearing shorts and shirts and dresses because sometimes you just need to feel that summer is on its way....

This post has reminded me to get my leather jacket out of the wardrobe!
