SLIGHT TROPICANA OR SOMETHING TOWARDS SPRING

Springtime may be (forced) in the air everywhere except for actually being there - spring/summer collections here and there in shop windows or dropped as brochures and leaflets trough in mail and sent to my inbox, but for real it keeps on snowing and getting colder again. As pretty as it is with snow crystals on the window and a bright sun making it all sparkle I am adjusting my mind towards spring, a warmer sun and just all that is to come after that.


This in a pale green cardigan, coral lipstick (makes me feel kind of tropical. Like think of papaya and such) plus a huge flower in my hair. It's a small start. Even though it will take some time to be able to kick of the boots and kick in the heels...

Our team did a come back at the music quiz yesterday after a brake of many months (the reslut not being too bad - we were 4th!). And what better way to do it in than in a musical note skirt? (From Tara Starlet.)

I absolutely love your musical note skirt! And I wish spring would hurry up and come, too :)

oh, I long for spring and summer, and it is not to avoid being influenced by the shop windows full of summer clothes, and your blog is the biggest source of inspiration of course. Happy.

THank you sweethtearts <3

Kia : It's from H&M this season! Ordered online, I have no idea weather they have them in stores yet or not!

Sal: thanks, I normally always do the same make up but this time I added a white liner and changed the tone of lipstick and it does feel pretty fresh :)

Pretty! I love that shade of green.
What brand lipstick is it? I like mac for reds but I want coral and pink ones, and the mac selections here don't have ones for me. Thanks!

That's such a cheerful, happy color for a cardigan. Love the coral lipstick. Hope that spring finds its way to you real fast this year.

Esme : The lipstick is MakeUp Factory No.273 (and the liner sans Soucis coral 30) - I bought them in Oslo this year and tey were new brands for me.

Pratishtha Durga : I hope so too. Thanks :)
