Ah, the spring sun…
OK, so it may not be particularly warm, but trust me, having some sunshine makes a difference here. Our new bedroom is positioned so that we catch the early morning sun. As a result, this night owl is now waking up around sunrise (7 am). This is OK, but as the days keep getting longer, this may become a problem (for those of you living further south: in southern Finland sunrise is before 4 am in summer). Professor M is already talking about getting blackout curtains…
For me, what really makes a difference is having more daylight in the evening (at the moment, sunset is around 6pm, but in summer it may be as late as 11 pm). I’m more likely to want to go for a walk after work when there’s some daylight.
And these days, going for a walk is what passes for exercise. Or a hobby. Or any sort of activity that is not work-related…
As you can see, I’ve switched to a lighter down jacket (which you’ve seen many times before), to accommodate the (slightly) warmer temperature.
And now that I live just one block from the sea, I finally understand that there is only one thing I really need in my wardrobe: outerwear that is windproof.
Outfit details (all old):
down jacket: Joutsen / trousers: PBO / bag: Coccinelle /
gloves: Global Accessories / sunglasses: Longchamp / shoes: Ten Points
Have you been shopping for spring clothes?
PS: Did you know that I also have an art blog called Dilettante Artist? Take a look at my latest artwork, sunset reflected on windows.
I also have 3 Instagram accounts: @elegance_revisited is connected to this blog, and I post new photos a couple of times a week, or whenever there is a new blog post. @dilettante.artist is where I post my artwork, and my ‘photo journal’ (= random pictures of this and that, or whatever catches my eye) is called @moments_revisited
