Windswept

Blogging challenges…

It’s not always easy being a style blogger. Trust me, blogging can be quite challenging at times.

For example, when you want to snap a few quick photos on your way to lunch, and Mother Nature decides to dump something wet and / or cold on you, just for fun. Or mistakes you for a kite and makes sure there’s not a single spot where you could escape the wind.

Of course you understand that she’s not doing it to be mean. She just has a weird sense of humour, that’s all. So, you adapt, play along. What else are you supposed to do?

Right, it’s windy, and you’ve already tried having your picture taken on that side of the street. And this side, too. Which is just as bad, maybe even worse. And yes, you should have found a better location…

It’s just that this was the one quiet spot without too many people. But of course, Mother nature is right: it’s the crowded street that deserves all the sunshine and no wind.

And for the record, you totally understand why Mother Nature keeps messing with your hairdo. You don’t like it either. The hairdo, that is. Well, you don’t like your hair: it’s a bit of a mess, even on a good day. So, you get it: it’s not perfect.

But to be quite honest, Mother Nature isn’t much of a hairdresser, either. After all, it was her idea to give you that messy, curly hair to begin with. And what she’s doing to it right now isn’t exactly an improvement…

But who are you to contradict Mother Nature? So you just play along. Or let her play you, any way she wants. Because, well, what else can you do?

Outfit details (all old):

top: Caroll / trousers: Marks and Spencer / bag and sunglasses: Chanel / shoes: Clarks

How’s Mother nature treating you?
(just asking to see if she’s playing fair, or playing favourites…)

      Thanks, Jacqui! Dark pink is one of my favourite colours, and one of the best colours for my skin tone. You should see how many clothes I have in this colour, it's scary.

    Mother natures upset my outfit plans today for sure. I've had to totally rethink due to a mother nature rain dump and cold weather. I can't even use a stylish umbrella as I need a warm hooded cost. Oh well

      Mother Nature can be a nasty bitch at times. As if we we haven't had enough cold weather already…

    One can't blame Mother Nature for having a bit of fun! Maybe she's jealous of that beautiful top of yours? Dark pink never looked that good on me, but I still keep buying any clothes in that colour – I can't keep away from it!

      You're so right: Mother nature deserves to have some fun, too; she works so hard.Dark pink is a fabulous colour, and I'm sure it looks great on you, too.

    Tiina, I love this color pink on you! And of course your sense of humor always leaves me chuckling! Mother Nature is quite the practical joker these days, isn't she? Blogger life is fun! Thanks so much for joining my link up. This post is a featured favorite today!Shelbeewww.shelbeeontheedge.com

      Thanks, dear! You know, so many people keep telling me that pink is a good colour on me. My students even once gave me some pink roses because 'that's my colour' (their words, not mine). I'd worn a pink top twice during the 11-week course…And Mother Nature, well, I was going to say that she's actually a real bitch, but she's been so nice to me today…
