This week is going to be a short one which means that I will have to try hard not to get crazy over the amount of working waiting for me. But I will do my best and I hope you will do the same…

You will probably have recognized Phoebe Philo, Céline’s designer, in this picture  (it was taken at her London office) which I found on Roséline’s beautiful blog This is Glamorous.  If you need to take a break from everything, even if it is just for a minute or so, now you know where you should head for.

A Merry MishapStockholm StreetstyleI may or may not have bought flowers in abundance today. Which is more than fine since I had an excellent excuse, an Easter gathering with friends. Not that I would need any, but it makes the splurge even more justifiable, right?

You might remember that I already posted a picture by Billy Kidd. But it surely doesn’t hurt when I come up with another one, especially when the picture in question is this beautiful…

Right now, I’m sitting in front of this picture and try to figure out how and why exactly it speaks to me. Yes, it ticks the box of  „a nice black and white shot“. And being printed in The Gentlewoman speaks quite naturally in its favour as well (they rarely got it wrong). A little black dress made out of lace? Bring it on! What is bugging me are all those flower shaped motifs attached to it. Being white they are not precisely hiding, radiating describes it probably far better. If someone would have told me about an idea describing this precise dress, my only imaginable reaction would be a raised eyebrow. Now, that I actually see it, I might be raising both.

A few things during the weekend should be obligatory like a lot of sleep, really good coffee and beautiful weather. Unfortunately we can hardly have any influence on the latter, but happily the first two are pretty feasible. So let’s strike the last one out, replacing it with something else. That something else would be, at least in my case, flowers.

About half a year ago, our apartment started to be filled with a few little (and not so little) bouquets of flowers on an almost weekly basis. Each and every corner transformed  itself in a blink of an eye and the effort was comparatively small. Somehow some kind of routine set in and we found ourselves more and more often in front of the little flower shop. As it happens with routines (at least with the good ones), we got used to that little extra in our surrounding. When not around, there was something missing. It must be said, that there are no plants in any of the rooms to tide us over that fact (and that for many reasons or three to be exact, I will come to that in another post). A next visit was inevitable.
Now, buying or receiving flowers is hardly a ground breaking invention, I decided to rave about. What I’m aiming after here, is to tell you that the time factor is really crucial. There is a huge difference between having flowers around „from time to time“ and „regularly“. Buying flowers week after week means exploring all the different possibilities which come in form of shapes and colours. And all those possibilities give a lot of room for change when it comes to the atmosphere of any room.

Who could resist that?
