Bright and Happy: Love the cheerful colours of this look.

This is a look I wanted to show you for some weeks, and I'm happy I finally can. It's a look I've been wearing during my last London trip, and nearly everything I wear comes from this beloved city. I love the cheerful casualness of this look, and it makes me remember a few very beautiful moments. Just what I need, because the last few weeks have been very stressful. A pile of new projects at work, me in bed with a cold for days, the birthday party of my mum, a wedding in the family and to top everything the nightmare of every blogger: A dead MacBook.

I edited my pictures on three different (borrowed) laptops while my precious MacBook was gone and nearly went crazy because the colours looked dramatically different on all of them. I lost a lot of time being annoyed of realising how little control I have over how you see my pictures. If time were an endless source, I would not just shoot one outfit a day for you but as well turn into a technic freak and read everything I could to make my blog as best as possible.

When I saw the documentary about fashion icon Iris Apfel a few weeks ago, I was very impressed by the energy of this woman. Being 94 years old seems to be no reason for her to slow down her pace and come up with new projects. I wonder if she knows those feelings of never have enough time just as well as I do at the moment. My head is full of ideas, but there are just too few hours. But well, maybe still better than the other way round.

I hope you are fine, you don't see my pictures all bluish or yellowish and handle the busy life with virtuosity. Don't forget to tell me how you like this look, please.
