Ah that was a glorious day, lying on a brand new picnic blanket, eating pastries and looking out into a quiet bay filled with boats that were gently swaying back and forth.
Mr M had taken me back to that special spot where we had our first picnic together, before we even got together. Back then I was shy and I tried to put up a certain facade but now, I feel comfortable, secure and glad to just be myself. It was nice to be able to kick back and relax in a white cotton dress by Uniqlo x Lemaire. It’s one of those pieces that isn’t overly trendy but rather practical and nice for everyday use. The mesh layer was a little bit tricky to iron but that certainly wouldn’t be a deal breaker. I must say that I haven’t given this dress much love at all so I’m looking forward to wear it more when the weather warms up, even if it’s just for lounging around at home. I’m not sure about you but I’ve kinda stopped wearing daggy clothes at home as I feel sluggish and unmotivated if I look all scruffy and smelly. Instead, I would opt for comfy going out clothes and that actually makes the biggest difference. I’ve also stopped being overly precious about the more expensive stuff because I get the biggest enjoyment from using my things, not just owning them.
I can’t believe that I’m saying this but I’m kinda looking forward to spring. I can’t wait to put on my lighter dresses again.
What are you excited about in the upcoming season, wherever you are?
