Giddy Green

So inharmonious, suits the springs of life. 
Thus when the earth, deep-coated with the slime
Of the late deluge, glowed again beneath
The warm caresses of the shining sun. 
    Ovid, Metamorphoses 

Kobe in his Easter-coloured scarf! This dog has a total obsession with
scarves, he has over twenty! 




Happy Easter! I love any reason for a big dinner! 





Outfit: Dress with lace (Thrifted), Wool Blazer (GAP), Flats (Spring), 
Bag (Thrifted), 

  To those who celebrate Easter, I hope yours was filled with love and joy! My family lives in Nova Scotia, where it costs an arm and a leg to travel to, so I spend most holidays without them unfortunately. Thankfully the bf has family here, or we'd be a lonesome couple! 
   It's been two days of no black clothing or accessories for me (besides my glasses...)! The world is brightening up and I thought I should too. I find this dress is perfect for spring and summer; it has such a vivid colour that seems almost out-of-place during the winter months and the lace detail is best not covered up.  
   Well, off I go now to walk the dog before it starts to rain. I am so ready for April showers and all the foliage to follow! 

Until next time

  7. Hi Kobe! Yep, I'm sure he likes scarves ;) I like his "treat time?" face.

    Also, your plaid blazer is pretty much awesome.
