Quicken

Quicken

Loneliness clarifies. Here silence stands
Like heat. Here leaves unnoticed thicken,
Hidden weeds flower, neglected waters quicken,
Luminously-peopled air ascends;
And past the poppies bluish neutral distance
Ends the land suddenly beyond a beach
Of shapes and shingle. Here is unfenced existence:
Facing the sun, untalkative, out of reach.”

― Philip Larkin, The Whitsun Weddings

I started working on today post and I wanted to do it about wedding dresses. But suddenly I found like for serendipity and outfit that I love, it was totally the opposite of what I was thinking, nothing to do with wedding and black tie, then I quickened the previous idea and decided to deliver today some every day outfits, outfits that you can use in diverse occasions and more than one time. Wish you enjoy them all as much as me.

Audacious

Center

“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.” ― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

Sometimes you do not want to be the center of attention, but you irremediably get all the eyes on the room over you. Why? You have your own fashion style, for example. You dare to mix different textures and shapes. You use the colors that do not belong to the season.

Firework of Celulose

Glitter

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Here you have an example that not all that shine is glitter. However nothing could bring more glitter to our lives that this dreamy image of a natural space. I loved to sped time at that backyard, sit there under the threes, between all the fallen leaves and enjoy the company of a good book. Is not this amazing? This piece of heaven on earth, motivated and inspired me. It made my blood rung through out my veins pleased to be on that healthy and natural environment.

Juicy

Juicy

“The taste seemed to come in two parts – a sort of awakening sharpness followed quickly by a wash of sweetness; and each of those little globules (which were about the size of tadpoles) seemed to burst separately in my mouth. That was the grapefruit of my dreams, I don’t mind telling you.” ~Julian Barnes, ‘A History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters’ (1989)

Nothing could beat a juicy grapefruit in the morning. I love to cut in half and pour a teaspoon of sugar over. Citric fruits give us a lot of vitamins C, that help and support our immunological system. Some articles also mention that the grapefruit is very good to make a diet, it helps burn fat.

Inspired by the citric colors are made this simple outfit with a lot of yellow.

Squat

Squat

When life hands you lemons – SQUAT! Squats make everything better. And if squats don’t, bacon will ~Anna Lee

I was visiting the museum of art, they have installed there a big silver screen, that looked like a mirror. It made me think on the famous silver bean in Chicago. Those girls squatted down and then jumped. I took the picture because I loved the effect, watch their reflection on the silver panel. I loved their freedom and distraction.

Talking about freedom, I love the playful designs of Alice Mccall, an Australian fashion designer. Her designs are  feminine  with a focus on intricate floral, whimsical prints and contrasting silhouettes.Here some of the clothes she has designed.

Seriousness

Seriousness

“I don’t believe in being serious about anything. I think life is too serious to be taken seriously.” [Writer’s Digest Interview (Robert Jacobs, Writer’s Digest, February 1976)]”
― Ray Bradbury

He is an Star Wars fan and I am crazy for pictures, acting, enjoying every little moment in a  very special and unique way. I told him: Noah, I beg you to protect my life, please save me from the dark forces.I was surprised with the fairness and seriousness with which he took his job. In a flash we were immortalizing the moment.

“Fear is the path to the dark side.”~ Yoda

The photo is an imitation of the poster from an article at Mirror.co.uk

The idea of be serious suggested me to look for a very classic, professional and serious outfit, I got inspired by Victoria Beckham style. I will let you choose the pair of shoes, I am giving you two options, I prefer for me the shoes that are more comfortable.

Lukewarm

Lukewarm

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis

The water was extremely cold, I heated up until it boiled. I do not like to drink lukewarm coffee or tea. In my working table, I have always next to me a cup of tea. The hot tea calm me and improve my concentration.

 

For me it is truly gratifying to invite friends over and have a tea time watching movies, or enjoying a good talk. I will share here some of my favorite set of tea cups and teapot, sugar and creamer set. You can find more affordable options out there, but I love this Royal design with flowers. Can you picture yourself with a cup of tea and some sweet treats now?
