Spring has sprung! And as you can tell, I’m not a very flowery person. I’m more into clean lines and monotone colour schemes. That’s why I love the Scandinavians, minimalism at its best. That said, my heritage always seeps into my sense of fashion. That flamboyance, mixed with my longing for simplicity, in my opinion is actually quite genius.

I’ve become obsessed with mixing textures lately. Hard and soft, flowy and hard, structure and flowy. I’m obsessed! So when I was looking to pair this beautiful silk birdcage skirt from 424 Fifth, It made sense to me that I would team it up with a cashmere cotton mix turtleneck. I was hoping, at first for a man-replelling outfit. What I got instead was mother-in-law approved!

Yes I know, I’ve been a horrible blogger.  The last few months have been marred with heart ache, depression and indecisiveness. It all started when I got offered my dream job. I was all packed and ready to start my high power career and of course, because it’s me, everything fell apart. I’m not one to sit and feel sorry for myself but this stung. Thank God for amazing friends and ultra supportive family.  I did take one lesson from all of this, as a control freak who makes lists, you can not control every single thing around you.

So in the last few months, I did what any self respecting person would have done in my situation. I shopped online and ate tons ice cream. A LOT OF ICE CREAM. Organic peanut butter and Vanilla Häagen-Dazs  anyone? Needless to say, I’ve got lots of outfit posts to come!

My t-shirt is from Melissa Araujo’s BASIC line, which you can find here. Its made from Bamboo cotton and the moment I put it on, I had to send her a love message. It’s so soft, comfy and flattering and  has become my favorite piece in my closet.
