March 24 – A mixed bag of emotions today

We’re launching a new computer system at work, homepage and everything so today was pretty much like being back in school – like being in class, learning about all the new features and everything. A long day but a pretty good day.
White tank Vero Moda, purple tights H&M, coral cardigan Oasis and skirt Mexx. Obi-belt from India.

I overslept a bit this morning so I grabbed a few simple items, but trying to be a bit creative with colors.
Then I added… guess(!)… my leopard scarf!

Me and Boyfriend hung out with my parents tonight, really nice. But I got pretty emotional after watching a documentary on tv about a rape at a school and afterwards the whole community started supporting the convicted rapist (a 25-year-old boy who confessed the whole thing) and well.. it was a long story but I just got so mad after watching it..

But then, I got home and read some wonderful news at one of my favourite blogs (bright side dweller) and that made me feel happy again – you know, good things do happen and MOST people in this world are great people.

February 24 – simple

I’m still very much into Brigitte Bardot – desperately wanting to get her effortless, tousled hair…
But I overslept today, so I didn’t feel like I had the time for hot rollers and teasing my hair. I did try to get some volume in the hair with four different products and drying my hair upside down. Did a little – not enough to feel Bardot though.

I thought of BB when I picked out the cardigan – I love the color (even though it’s one of those colors that changes depending on what you’re wearing it with and it’s pretty hard to find that perfect pairing. It’s pink, but sometimes it almost looks coral… I think of raspberries when I look at it.)

I don’t think this as an outfit that captures the essence of Bardot. I think a pair of pants or a straighter skirt might have worked better – but I don’t own those items – at least not any that would work in this climate. Yes I go on and on about that, but it seems like the snow isn’t going to budge any time soon… I can give up some comfort for fashion – but that does not include keeping warm!

I used to wear this necklace all the time in 2005, almost every day. I got it from my parents, it’s pieces of gold from Alaska in it. I love that it’s so simple – yet special. Nothing boring about it. I felt really good wearing it, seems like forever since the last time.

I felt like my outfit today wasn’t really special or inspirational – but I felt SO good wearing color again. I’ve missed it immensely!
