Sessun

i usually hate websites that play music automatically, but there’s something quite pleasant about looking through the new sessun a/w 2012 lookbook while listening to their playlist selection of holy shit & julie doiron - amongst others.

NORTH / SOUTH

thought i’d highlight the best of both worlds – since you notherners are slowly skipping into spring, and us southerners are steadily creeping into autumn. i’m sure we are both eager for a change … i know i am.

NORTH: spring flowers / beating the heat / the beach / swimming / watermelon / bare legs / lazing outdoors / shorts / ice-cream conesSOUTH: autumn colours / falling leaves / warm boots / scarves / comfort food / rainy walks / fireplaces / layering / snuggly beds

icy goodness

just in case you felt the need to look at a bunch of beautiful ice pools, like i did.

… which indirectly made me think of this douglas adams quote

“… imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, ‘This is an interesting world I find myself in – an interesting hole I find myself in – fits me rather neatly, doesn’t it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!’ This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it’s still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything’s going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise.”

those jeans

i’m just filing this away right here for when the time is right. our summer is still in full swing – so high waisted flared jeans worn with boots, socks, tucked in shirts, jerseys, coats and all the best things in the world aren’t an option right now. i look at these outifts the same way someone on a diet might look at a food blog.

gucci’s corduroy

did all the designers of the world flip a switch of some magical machine that travels across the ocean and reads my brain waves? because they’re hitting all the right notes for the new collections. i mean, i don’t even like gucci… usually. these are three looks from their pre-fall 2011 collection that i love. that green get-up is amazing  - except for the bag. still can’t get the bags right, gucci.
