easter is my favourite holiday. not because of the chocolate (who cares about the chocolate? we can buy that stuff all year round – who are we kidding.) no no, it’s because every easter weekend in my living memory has marked the turn of the seasons. it will always be cold & rainy without fail. and i look forward to it so, so much – especially when the march heat waves almost send me to the brink of tears. okay i’m exaggerating, those were probably just my eyes sweating.

and – rain it did this weekend! we had a mini-break in the karoo where good intentions of taking photos of the stars were ruined by amazingly cloudy weather. i was of course completely okay just hanging out indoors cooking lamb on the fire.

so when i spotted the confezioni crosby f/w 2012 lookbook (who i previously posted about here and here) over at jessica’s blog i felt it was quite serendipitous owing to my current joyous feelings about our impending winter. today i stopped to look at a tree whose leaves were turning and i almost broke into song. almost.


    • unfortunately it’s not something i can control, i host my images on flickr & they’re set to private – it seems that pinterest has recently changed their settings which means you can’t pin them anymore.

  1. Haha, here in the other hemisphere, I always look forward to Easter time for the season changing into sunshine and warmth and rainy/grey days ending. In any case, that’s a gorgeous lookbook. I love all the rich colours and velvets…

  2. lovely jewel tones and cozy places. it’s funny to me to hear your thoughts about easter and the weather change, i feel the same excitement when september rolls around and the weather starts to turn to fall/winter for us. i’d love to say easter signals warmth for us and we can stop layering but i think it’s a myth. because every easter here is also rainy and still too cold for spring outfits. so maybe we share the same clouds as we do the same moon or something, for a little while in the year. today is a high of 7 degrees. brrrr. enjoy your fall/winter, Diana.

  4. I must live in a peculiar spot because I could definitely see me in most of those clothes right now. Oh Amsterdam and you’re horrid weather. I really like the feel of the look book as well.

  5. ooh! jealous of your coming winter. love these and particularly those tiles on the wall behind in the first photo.

  6. Wooah, that’s really funny, all these pictures were taken really close to my house, I recognize the Cable Cafe and other places… Beautiful clothes too, never thought I’d like velvet trousers :-)
