Spring Uniform

***

Well I definitely got my Vitamin D quota today that’s for sure… and much needed too seeing as I’ve holed myself up this past week trying to complete the last of my recipes, which are due on Monday, eek! Deadlines aside, I was in a pretty relaxed mood – probably aided by the first throes of Spring that have sprung up around us much to everyone’s delight. Whilst I was tempted to don a skirt or even a pair of shorts (I have some newly acquired vintage culottes I am dying to wear) I thought I would ease myself into the warmer weather by simply switching up my jacket for something a little lighter and this pink 60’s one was just the job.

Practicality wins out every time for me (as you may have gathered by now) so the lace up trainers were a no-brainer… long walks equal sensible footwear for me and I steadfastly refuse to compromise comfort for fashion. The headscarf was also a necessary outfit addition (there’s still a breeze and my hair is in desperate need of a trim) and the stripes ‘n’ jeans combo are just an obvious uniform choice that I (and many, many others) rely on way too frequently. Fine by me because as far as I’m concerned you really can’t have too many Breton tops.

I’m sure we’re in for a bit more bad weather here (it is Britain after all) but for now we’re happy lapping up these gloriously clear skies – Cornwall truly is different beast when the sun’s out. Not long now before we’ll be spending our evenings languishing on the beach. Might be time to invest in some more Spring-appropriate attire but that means I finally must get around to selling my bulging bag of vintage cast offs on etsy… that to-do list just keeps getting bigger and bigger but I suppose once my looming deadline is dealt with Ima gonna have a lot more free time to fill so watch this space. How exactly did I get from deadlines to closet clear-outs? What can I say, spring will do that to a girl.
