I Missed You, Pink Trench!

Hi babes ♥

What's up with you all? Having a great start for your weekend? :)

I hope so.

Okay, so, who else is loving it that the Spring is finally starting? Ain't it awesome to feel the weather get warmer every day and, if you live as much in North as I do, to see the snow melting away in front of your eyes. I think it's pretty incredible.

What's also incredible, is that I've been finding a part of me that has kinda been missing for a while. I can't exactly describe what it is, I just know that now I feel like I'm in a place I should be in. I don't know if I have just been having a lack of vitamins, or was it something else, but hey, the main thing is that I'm feeling great, right? ;)

Are you all feeling whole and awesome? ♥

Anyway, I think my point was that the sunny weather is giving me inspiration in so many ways - though only way to get creative is usually just put together a nice outfit these days. (School, work, other projects... I've been sleeping way too little the past 6 days :D) So, that was exactly what I did earlier this week.

Some while ago, I bought a dress from a friend from school who just wanted to clean up her closet a bit, and offered the items to me and couple of other girls visiting her that day. I fell for the dress for its chic casuality, and I thought it'd make a fantastic "mix & match" piece. And below is my first attempt to style it.

Outfit of the day

Trench: VILA
Dress: Second hand from May ;)
Scarf: Nelly.com
Lace leggings: GinaTricot
Boots: Kenkä Cosmos
Necklace: Accessorize
Bracelet: JC (jeans and clothes)

I think it's not hard to guess where the title of this post came from... I've been itching to wear that trench for weeks, but it has been too cold. Not that it was especially warm the day I was wearing it, but... You gotta start somewhere, right? ;) So, in my mind, it's Spring already. Yay!

Now, I'd like to ask you: What do you think about this outfit? And, is there a fashion piece you've been longing to wear, but haven't been able due to the weather lately?

You know what, this sudden flow of inspiration has gotten me deep into the sewing. I must say, I'm not a master at it, nowhere near that, actually. But what I lack in skills I make up in determination, creativity and patience, so, after a failed attempt to sew a lace dress, I tried again the next day. And here's what I came up with:

It looks a bit more pale and yellow than it truly is (and the red mannequin isn't the best for the photo), but you get the idea. Next I was thinking I'd use my huge amount of white lace to glam up a dress I haven't worn for years. I'll be sharing that later. :)

Now, I just wanna wish you all a fantastic weekend! Who else is gonna watch Formula 1 this weekend? (Sherin, I'm sure your my girl on this ;)) Or, do you have some other nice plans? 

Blog ya later,

xoxo
