KICK OFF, KIND OF

I'm starting to get this feeling that some of you, and sometimes me too, might go all nauseous if I mention the word "spring" or "floral" during this month one more time (not to mention pastels, right?). But you see, living in a city 841,4 kilometers from the arctic circle means it's dark and shitty here a big part of the year, especially now with the global warming and it's warmer winters with little snow to light it up, just sogginess and rain. So now that we're were half-way trough March the countdown for spring has definitely begun for my part and I took a little false start to summer by wearing the the old romper I found at our summer house last year. Of course, I had to wear it with an extra knit and my knee-long jacket outside, so I couldn't really celebrate spring kick off yet. But I guess I'm at least one step closer!


I noticed two things with rompers/jumpsuits;
One- I'd never wear a dress this short. But it feels totally different when the little garment has legs. Strange huh?
Two - the jumpsuit is really not the most practical piece of clothing. You have to get all undressed when you want to pee :/

(You know what? It's snowing now goddammit. Weather - me 1-0. As usual).

I konw exactly how you feel! Every time it's a sunny day I get my hopes up, and every single time it starts to snow the next day. It feel like the spring never comes!

But at least we've had a pretty good vinter in Finland. Not so much raining and more snowing, but without those minus 20 degrees days.

That's a good initiative, dear.

I could never live so far north! Brrr.

Like this, the jumpsuit is good for all kinds of weather, even for snow-days :o).
Have fun wearing it, you look fabulous!

I say gush about florals and spring! It's all that will give us hope that warmer weather WILL finally arrive.

The romper is marvelous - never seen one so flattering.

Sari said...

I love the romper!

WeirdRockStar said...

Even Diane von Furstenberg adores florals. And nobody would get nauseous at her either.
So if you got it, flaunt it. At least that´s what I say. And I´m always right.

Rick said...

I like both of those words: Spring and floral.

So close to the artic circle!?! Wow! I'd wait before I wore that outfit outside.

Here in Portland, we're in the time period now where I have to wear layers, because it's still cold in the mornings as I ride my bike to work, but not extremely cold. Then in the afternoon, it's quite warm, and I have to take off my coat or sweater so I don't get too hot on the way home, but I still need something to stay a bit warm, as it isn't summer yet. This works pretty well if I wear a scarf in the morning :)

The jumpsuit is adorable, though I can see it being a bit inconvenient, especially if you have a small bladder or drink a lot of coffee/water :)

What an adorable jumper! This is fantastic! You always mix pieces I wouldn't typically put together. I like the tights under the shorts though. Perfect for the weather I'm experiencing.

Grant said...

You FOUND that fantastic piece???

Mon Du!

You look truly amazing my dear.

Fleur de Guerre said...

Super cute! I haven't been brave enough to dig out my playsuits yet... maybe in another month! :D

Winnie said...

Your playsuit is perfect. I like how you paired it with the cardi and that little belt!

Oh, it´s a hoot! I must highly recommend it.

Aliliisa said...

aivan mahtava toi haalari :)

Elina said...

That's true about the jumpsuits, they feel more covered up even though they're short. And they are a trouble when one need to visit the restrooms :P

selinaoolala said...

gem fatale said...

That romper is too perfect!

逆援助 said...

セレブ達は一般の人達とは接する機会もなく、その出会う唯一の場所が「逆援助倶楽部」です。 男性はお金、女性はSEXを要求する場合が多いようです。これは女性に圧倒的な財力があるから成り立つことの出来る関係ではないでしょうか?
