spring fever

03-04-1003-04-10
vintage sweater, ksubi jeans, zara platforms

One day of uninterrupted sunshine wedged between stormy weather and I already think I can get away with dressing like this. Yes, I may not have stepped out of my apartment at all today but I can pretend, right? My bangs have been pissing me off so I'm taking advantage of my day off to explore a life without them. The final verdict? I wouldn't mind doing this every once in a while...

With Spring coming up, I thought I'd tackle the monster mess in my closet to get a head start on spring cleaning. Umm, is it too late to admit that I am a closet hoarder? I found this awesome oversized sweater that I totally forgot I'd purchased and threw it on as soon as I found it. I found a couple other things as well but I should really stick to my resolution and stop hoarding all of these articles of clothing. Wouldn't they be better on someone who would actually wear them? After running into problems with my blog shop (i.e. people not paying, listing the wrong address, etc.) I considered shutting it down but I'm going to give it one more go. I'm listing three cream silk tops this time so stay tuned! The entries will go up around 8pm pacific time.

It's lovely to see your forehead!

Loving the cut-out pattern of that sweater and the nude colour palette. I totally know what you mean with the bangs and all, I've been living life with mine clipped up for a solid 2 weeks now and it's nice, but I think I miss them...

Cute outfit! Love the oversized sweater.

Don't feel self-conscious about your bangs, they look fabulous tucked back!

miss_vogue said...

you look so different without your bangs but i love it! and the nude platforms because UGH i can't find any anywhereee.

suzy said...

cute outfit :) i myself am also a horrible closet hoarder. i constantly find things buried in the back, most with the tags still on, lol

denise said...

oooh yes your hair looks cute like that. nice change from full on bangs

Ganymede Girl said...

It's surprising seeing your hair like this but it looks good! Have you tried pinning it with a side part too? I bet it would look lovely as well. This outfit is great, very Spring appropriate and it's always nice when you find things in your closet you actually want to wear that you forgot you had!

You look so fresh. Love the oversized sweater!

fashion nugget said...

omg, i really like everything about this look. your hair, sweater, even white jeans and awesome clogs!the drapery of the sweater us anazing with the capris. looove it.

C'est Moi said...

I just did a closet haul as well. I gave it all to goodwill where I hope someone else can benefit from my good taste instead of things I don't wear taking up hangars haha. Plus its both therapeutic and nostalgic.

The sun fooled me, too. I walked outside thinking it was almost spring/summer time only to run to my car to avoid being blown away by a frozen wind. So close yet so far.

Now totally fashion related: That sweater is adorable. I love the cut out pattern, the color and the length is perfect :-)

gennie said...

Your shoes are so lovely. I really like the whole look. It's still winter here so I'm hesitant to wear so much cream/white, but you look fabulous.

You look great with your fringe pinned back. I like to pretend it's summer too (haven't left my flat yet either) hehe.

Your hair looks great like that actually. You should pin it back more often!

kayang said...

You look cute with your hair pinned back! Its a fresh change (although your bangs still look amazing). :)

kristine said...

you look very different without bangs! dressing in light colors head to toe seems so ballsy to me, but you're tempting me to try it.

sugarxnspice said...

I love the sweater & I adore your shoes SO MUCH!! Hope you're feeling better Annabel! ♥

dreamylacey said...

Jenny Cindy said...

You look wonderful - light colors just suit you so well. Also really like the pinned back bangs, it looks beautiful.

And that sweater is so cool, I love discovering things in my closet that I've forgotten all about and then revive them.

[b]Oregon 300[/b]

уристический gps навигатор Garmin Oregon 300 имеет высокочувствительную антенну, контрастный цветной сенсорный экран, а так же корпус стандарта IPX7. В отличии от Oregon 200, 300-я модель имеет встроенный электромагнитный компас и барометрический высотомер. Во всем остальном Garmin Oregon 200 и 300 – два брата близнеца.


Картография

Устройство имеет предустановленную карту мира, а так же способно воспроизводить другие картографические продукты компании Garmin и компаний дилеров. Кроме всего прочего, с недавнего времени, приборы получили возможность обрабатывать пользовательские растровые карты, к которым можно отнести отсканированные листы, спутниковые снимки, водные лоцманские карты, а так же многие другие.

Пылевлагозащищенный корпус

Важнейшим параметром, который определяет работоспособность и живучесть прибора – является защита корпуса по установленному стандарту. Для Garmin Oregon – это IPX7, что очень важно для использования устройства в самых сложных условиях, будь то дождь, снег или грязь. Стоит так же отметить, что устройство способно работать на метровой глубине в течении 30 минут.

I love love love this outfit, simple yet fresh ! perfect for spring. And it's funny b/c I've been feeling the same way about my bangs. They do all sorts of crazy things with them at Tobi and so now I am considering putting them back more often.
I think you look really lovely with no bangs.

Amy said...

I miss your bangs.

You're still gorgeous regardless.

Marie Montage said...

Gorgeous - this is 1960s Parisian cool. I especially love the wedges.

Lola Candy Hans Harder said...

Fantastic colour choices! That sweater is amaaaazing I must have it!

the madman beneath the bed said...

this is so peculiar because ive never left a comment before though ive been reading a while now but for some reason i just felt so compelled to tell you that your bangs pinned away gives you a completely different look but in a gorgeous way!
you look lovely(as always but perhaps just in my opinion more so now with the bangs 'gone' because its a refreshing change!) (:

helens said...

wow, your hair makes you look completely different and gorgeous.

Also the outfit is deliciously summer! tan and creams, mmhm.

Loved your blog!

nicola said...

You look great without your fringe (or, in american, bangs) (as well as with it), so no need to be afraid of showing your forehead.

Writing the Ship said...

Your bangs look great that way. I have been doing that lately and getting over my fear of forehead.

Nude sandals + white jeans = my fave thing of summer

TWIN CAT VINTAGE said...

Always baffles me that your photos aren't shot with a DSLR - too amazing.

And your hair looks great! It's so hard to NOT hide behind bangs/fringe sometimes, but you look gorgeous with or without.

The outfit is great too - love the ksubis.
