99 Problems in the Winter Winds

10.5.11


Philosophy: Why wait till the new year to make resolutions when you can make them right at the peak of spring?

And boy, do I have the long list here. Somewhere right around the top though, is the point at which I learn to play the guitar. A little Hugo meets Mumford & Sons. Yuppers! Now one might wonder how these two merge, but somewhere in a deep corner of my mind, I envision a duet called 99 problems in the winter winds. Yeah. A cocoon in the middle of all that is exactly what I'm aiming for. After only learning a few chords this past week my fingers have been bleeding/crying out in pain. I could say that's what has kept me away from my keyboard, my computer and blogging, but that'll be a dirty dirty lie. I've been enjoying my new found freedom (from uni work) and frolicking through the city discovering hole in the wall restaurants and the like. Really nothing better to do that in than this half sheer, high splitted maxi dress. 

Hope you're all feeling as well as can be. Any summer resolutions/ upcoming plans? 

Here's some Hugo to keep you company while you come up with some ;)


Bisous,
Abi

And yeahhh! I love the idea of looking at spring as a fresh start. Pfft, I never liked January much anyways ;)!

Good luck with all your goals.

Haha, good luck with that duet! And enjoy your freedom... I've been enjoying mine and kind of ignoring the fact that I need to get back to work. You look awesome and fluid, as always.

I hope to travel a lot this summer. Get in some of the trips that always seem to be pushed aside for work, work and work. And I need to get cranking on some blog updates. Sigh. Good lick with the duet! The wind does make for gorgeous shots at least.

Love the dress. Wait ... is that snow!?

It is indeed a beautiful dress, it looks expensive and chic, something to do with the luxurious fabric and colour I reckon. Like the way you've toughened it up with the boots too. Before this becomes a truly lengthy essay, thanks for your darling comments :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

Too cute! I love the sweater and how you added some cute boots to the outfit!

Maybe it's because I grew up in the 90s, but I adore a skirt with a high slit. Where's this from?? You look fantastic!

Love the outfit! Such a perfect mix and edgy! And to be honest you are right! The best resolutions are to be made in spring. And I made a few this days, so your question was perfect. I'll try to make more friends and new ones. I feel like is the time to make larger my older group. kisses!!

Thanks for your comment, though if you actually read my post you'd see it was a floral skirt, not shorts.

This dress is so totally gorgeous! Loving it. I wish I could play the guitar, I spent a whole 2 years with a guitar in my bedroom when I lived with my cousin and I touched it only a few times with the intention to learn but it just never happened. Ugh distracting computers.

Jazzabelle said...

Absolutely love this outfit and how the wind is catching your dress! The asymmetric slit at the front is so cool! Also loving the neutral shades on you. Really beautiful.

Seem to have the same resolutions as always... run more! Always manage it for a couple weeks (okkk, days) and then go back to my sofa! Haha. Oops. xx
