The skirt I showed you in one of my latest wishlists here has finally arrived and I couldn't be happier! I've been spending quite some time in the UK lately for work, and not that I am complaining or anything, but it was nice to take a break and spend Easter at home. Well, it was actually my boyfriend's hometown, but it still counts as being home. I couldn't wait to take my new skirt out for a spin and I had been dying to shoot in this location for some time now. My vintage inspired floral midi skirt fits perfectly in this decor of vintage steam engines.

Call me and tell me you care,
There's a country to flatten over there.
Don't bore me with the truth,
I live alone, don't you?
Write down the things I should say,
There ain't enough hours in the day,
Perfect my cold stare,
Tell your friends I did a dare.
But don't you understand?
The hunger makes the man.
With all that lies in front of us,
The world looks so ridiculous to me.
Laugh with me hyena.

I wouldn't consider myself and early trend adopter. I usually wait out and see what stands out and is worth investing in. I had my doubts about culottes, because let's face it, culottes are not easy to wear. I spotted these ones at H&M a while back but was reluctant to try them on. For about 2 weeks they were always there in the back of my mind and that's when I knew I had to buy them. If I was to completely forget about them in the next couple of days, then it would have been a shame to invest in something that would turn out to be a fad. I loved them from the minute I tried them on. My mom thought otherwise, to be honest, but I am hoping that when she sees these pictures she will realize how chic they are, and that not everything is supposed to be (what she or most people consider) flattering. How do you feel about culottes?

I am flying to the UK again today for work, so I will have to keep this short and sweet. It seems like I will be travelling a lot for my new job so I might as well get adjusted to a life on the go. A couple of days ago I went to karaoke for the very first time, and the song I sang ... well, sang is a bit of an overstatement... was Iggy Pop's The Passenger. I thought it was very appropriate. Does this qualify as a jet setter outfit? I belive so.

I am taking a short break from my noir disposition as of late, and decided to don a pastel infused ensemble. It might be spring according to our calendars but the temperatures these past few days are stating otherwise. Now I know wearing pastels for spring is not groundbreaking at all, as neither is wearing florals, but I like to do this all the same. It's some sort of a way of transitioning from one season to another until you figure out what your favorite trends are and what are the pieces worth investing in. Pastels are in that sense a safety net if you will. So here is to paying it safe and welcoming moody spring into our lives.

Today we celebrate women everywhere. So make sure you call you mom, your sister and your best friend and tell them how awesome they are. And because there is nothing that women love more than receiving flowers on this day, I thought I would put together some inspiring floral items to wear on this beautiful day. Flowers will certainly last longer if they are printed, right? Wishing you a wonderful spring, beautiful ladies!

If you see me walking down the street, chances are I have my headphones on, away from reality in a world of my own. And I am probably singing in low key as well, or mumbling lyrics, so probably I am quite an odd sight to see. I listen to music as much as I can, whether I am out and about, at work (yes at work), and especially if I'm at home. You've probably noticed that most of my post titles are lyrics or song titles, so it's fair to say that music is a huge part of my life. Every since I got these leather headphones (thanks hun for the wonderful gift), I've never left home without them. They add the perfect amount of edge to whatever outfit I am wearing that day.
