SPRINGING


WEARING: Oak and Fort Chiffon Dress, American Apparel Birdseye Pullover, Zipper Pants + Leather Clutch, Aldo Shoes and H&M Clear Sunnies.

My city is grey and rainy 95% of the time; but when the sun decides to come out, you know it is time to play. I crave vitamin D all the time, and if I could, I would be living either in L.A. or in Southern France. You may think that is quite the contradiction, how different are those places in culture and lifestyle. Yes indeed, but I think that it's good to have diverse interests and desires. The bottom line is: I need a place that will bring out the best in me creatively. I have always related good times, brainstorming and doing my best work with places with nice, warm weather.

These photos were taken this past Friday. I really enjoyed the sun and not having to put on so many layers to be outside. It was like a little teaser for Spring. So there you have it, most people around this time of year start getting naked; but for me it is the time of the year where I try really hard to play with layering.  Mixing between lighter and cozy fabrics, in this case chiffon and a sweatshirt. I am not good at posing, but I always have fun throwing my hair around.

Photos by Maria Aldrey. Such a lovely, bright day.

  4. I so agree on the weather! If I could, I'd move to LA right away haha :) So glad you're into layering at the moment, since I am too - and you make hell of an inspiration. Those hair flipping photos are awesome! x

  5. You don't need be good at posing - in fact it's refreshing to see blogs in which the subject isn't trying hard to be cute, and isn't posing in an obvious way. Being present in the photo matters more, and you do that better than most. :)
    I like the unusual proportions here, the layering. And your hair, wow!

  7. I have serious hair envy now, love the hair movement shots! The contrast of the light chiffon shirt hanging out from under the heavy sweater is just gorgeous as well. We had a little teaser of spring here a few days ago, but today it is snowing again! Argh!
