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!

 

Date Night

I wore this outfit on a date a few days ago. The only thing that’s worse than being single is people pitying you for being single. “What do you mean you like being alone?” “And you live alone?” It’s the incredulous look I get from my attached friends. Like the concept of being single belongs on Mars. So having being set by my friend on a blind date I thought why not? How was I to say no to ‘Obama sensibilities and Michael Fassbender eyes”? There was nothing to lose.  I would usually wear heels but to be honest I was going to more comfort than anything else, and the sneakers for running if he turned out to be a jerk. The date, amazing. I never laughed so much in my life. Date número two? We’ll see.
