What I wore - to work.

This week I went back to work. I will have to avoid wearing contacts for a while, and I don't like myself in glasses... So to feel better about myself, I decided to wear my new cobalt pumps for the first time. I have to admit, they were not the most comfortable shoes I own...

Shirt- Conbipel
Cardigan - OVS
Jeans - Miss Sixty
Pumps - Primadonna
Necklace - Particolari
Glasses -Just Cavalli

Here is a closeup of my beautiful shoes.

Someone at work comented that it's not the easiest color to wear.
I say, since it's such an attention grabbing color, it should be worn with a neutral outfit, as I did here. Or whatever, I think it'd look nice also in a mis-matched outfit...

This post will be part of Tara's What I wore to work weekly link-up.

It's that time of the year,,,

That time of the year when flowers bloom, birds chirp, the air is warm and I have no idea how to dress. It's too cold for bare legs, short sleeved dresses and sandals. Too hot for wool pants and skirts and boots.
So, I am left with jeans and a few tops I keep using, while trying to catch up on laundry and ironing as fast as I can.

Since I have a bad eye infection and the doctor ordered to stay at home for a week, I did what every wise woman would do: turned t Pinterest for inpiration.
Here are a few outfits I loved:

The first outfit is my absolute favourite. I don't own a suede jacket (unfortunately), and I'd substitute a brown leather bag for the black one, but I love the 70s feel.

As for the others... The good news is that I own enough clothes to copy most of them - sometimes not the exact colors, but the feel for sure.
The bad news is that it's almost always jeans, which after a while can become boring. We'll see what I come up with. I think I need more colorful accessories, since that's the only thing I can afford now...
White jeans look more refined for sure, as do black jeans, but they are definitely less spring-y. And I have a white pair of wide legs jeans that I have to put back into rotation...

That's all for now, but I would love some more spring inspiration.

Sunday morning light

Today I am a little heartbroken. My little one started daycare today, so that she will be used to it by the time I go back to work full time, on April 29th.
I am actually happy for her. She will make new friends and have a lot of fun. But it's sad for me to think that time is going by so fast, that she is almost 1 and that I'll get to spend less time with her during the day.
Today when I got back home I kissed her so much she started laughing.
I love her and want the best for her. And I know I need to go to work to be the best possibile mom for her. But I can't help being a little hearthbroken today...

Taking stock - Jan 2015

I like to read the "taking stock" posts on other blogs, I think it's a good way to keep track and remember what's going on in one's life at a certain time.
Here is mine!

Making: sourdough bread. Smells divine.
Cooking:soups. A great way to eat healthier and up our liquid intake.
Drinking: water - lots of it. There is this challenge on The Everygirl, to watch and increase our water intake for the months of January. A doable goal, but one that makes me feel good. And the occasional glass of red wine.
Reading: The Newlyweds by Nell Freudenberger. For now it's - meh. Hope it improves.
Wanting: more vacation!
Playing: London Calling by The Clash, a present for husband from me.
Whishing: to be able to read a book a month this year, but I highly doubt it.
Ejoying: quiet mornings when I wake up before everyone else.
Marveling: that's an easy one: at how fast my little girl grows. It seems like every day she gets a new skill!
Needing: to finally set a date for little girl's Baptism. It's difficoult to make everyone happy.
Wearing: lots of forgotten things from my closet, thanks to the 30 days shop your wardrobe challenge.
Feeling: a bit run down... Holidays are tiring with a small kid, but they really aquire a new meaning...
