Tomorrow is my 37th birthday.
It’s been a rough week at home, we all had colds and Anna was found underweight which brought massive anxiety and lots to deal with.
I don’t feel like complaining, though. She is now eating better and more, I received a sweet birthday gift from an (almost) 97-year-old friend, and last night I actually slept close to 7 hours.
Plus I have a few birthday goodies I’ve squirreled away.
Tomorrow I’d like to treat myself to a little DIY project (paint and glue gun) for Anna’s room and a celebratory lunch with the husband. Life is good.
When we moved in our Swiss chalet the bedroom was the first room I put together and it stayed my favorite room in the house for quite a bit.
Then this summer I became displeased with it and decided I needed to lighten it up a bit. It was too dark, formal and cave-like.
You know that dream where you’re back in high-school? Well, it’s come true.
It’s official, the nineties are back in style this year. Expect beanies, plaid shirts, knee-highs and chunky boots.
The problem I have with that is I live in a boarding school, and it might be a tad freaky to see today’s kids dressed like I did in high-school. Like a bad deja-vu. Or a joke meant to make me feel old?
Anna Wintour I’m shaking my fist at you.
When I heard about the concept of capsule wardrobe I was immediately intrigued. The promise is to simplify deciding what to wear and packing, yet the challenge is collecting just the right kind and amount of stuff.
With this idea on the back of my mind I’ve put together a few things for my personal capsule wardrobe.
I have to say I’ve been pretty pleased with the results and the amount of wear I’m getting out of these items.
As I’m not working at the moment I even have the privilege of considering badass boots and a leather skirt (both from Zara) as basic wear-everywhere items.
I get so excited when I get a chance to dress up. It really doesn’t happen that often any more, now that we live in our little Swiss mountain village.
Fortunately the school my husband works for provides several festive occasions a year, and of this I am very grateful.
For example tonight is a dancing birthday party. Oh boy!
And here is the outfit I picked out. I particularly love the swishiness of the dress. I just want to make it twirl.
