A Chloé girl through and through - give me linen, crepe, lace and silk any and everyday of the week. It's time to start thinking more about the spring wardrobe since today was a sweltering seventeen degrees...ok so maybe not sweltering but it was warm, and the Cherry Blossom's were out too.

Went to the markets Thursday after work to pick up some flowers for the Easter long weekend. I ended up getting red anemones, white and orange ranunculus - going to buy some tulips later on today. Also bought the Byredo Bibliotheque candle which smells so good even without having lit it. Wanting to visit florists Scarlet & Violet in London...and thinking about when the lily of the valley will come out again.

We were talking about relationships the other night and a friend of mine said that it's not about how it looks- the stuff, the status or the symbols of your love- the important thing is to make sure that you really live together. And you know I believe her.

Having it great and perfect for a while. Doing some writing today, catching up with friends and looking forward to getting my Rika bag this week...Right now I'm into gray shades and burnt out orange.

It's spring and I feel it's time for a change. Playing the best of the seventies and it dawned on me that life is meant to be great. Sweet home Alabama kind of great- where the skies are so blue. It's not that it hasn't occurred to me before it's just that sometimes it's clearer.

Dreaming of this (Tulum, Santorini, Corsica...you name it) while looking at the Shashi bracelets and white Birkenstocks I want for summer. I asked a client who works in fashion as a trend forecaster/writer/designer what the colour trends for spring/summer would be and she said white is the main one, blush tones and all blues preferably with a green undertone. Apparently the ocean is a big inspiration, even more than usual, so it's safe to say this coming season will agree with me then. Almost every room in our apartment has blue in some form...it's beginning to be a problem.

"Dressing well is a kind of good manners, if you ask me. When you're standing in a room, your effect is the same as a chair's effect, or a sculpture's. You're part of someone's view, you're part of that world, and so you should dress well, I find it's a show of respect to try to put on your best face and look as good as you can." - Tom Ford

It's a rainy Friday afternoon, starting to get dark and all I want to do is curl up on the couch with my Porter magazine. I love 'The Edit' and now they have a print version packed full of content, and I do mean actual editorial content, not ads. It seems the need for real magazines is finally being met with recent new-comers and I think Porter- with all its features and eye candy - is an eclectic mix, and mark my words you will be informed. It's not Gentlewoman but hey, I'm on board and so far liking this Porter woman.
This quote from Alber Elbaz stayed with me because I often strive for perfection but then when something is perfect I just can't stand it, I have to mess it up.
"Perfect is the end. Perfection is what scares me. When you see photos of those perfect ladies, you realize it is as far away from perfect as you can imagine. Perfect people, perfect scenarios, perfect moments, perfect clothes, for me, are boring. I like imperfections; I like the tension."

This year, I suppose like every year holds new hope, the hope of something exciting happening. If there's anything that holidays do well, apart from give you a break, it's give you distance enough to see what really matters - what you do and don't need and what you want. Or in less words, clarity. Holidays give you clarity. This year I 'll be finding my place, wherever that might be whilst planning my next trip away. I agree with Kate...
