Saturday fun: of hats and calligraphy !

Hello ladies !

As much as I enjoy blogging, with my new internship starting on Monday, I will have to post less often… It’s almost the end of the year (it’s March already, time flies so fast it’s unbelievable), so that calls for more study time ! Anyway, it’s break time now and I wanted to write a bit.

 

Outfit of the (other) day !

A quick outfit I wore last week. Spring is starting to come around and I am glad that except for a few rainy days here and there, heavy coats will no longer needed ! In this outfit I am wearing a passe-partout knee-lenght black skirt, a champagne shirt and a white wool jacket along with a black hat, and long mustard earrings. I just love how hats add a final touch to an outfit; you can find those wool felt hats at H and M.

 

Calligraphy !

As I am starting to look for practical, beautiful yet inexpensive ways to make my appartement more homey and cosy, I am considering starting calligraphy ! In a way, I already do it on a daily basis since in France, when we were little, writing beautifully (often with a fountain pen and in cursive script) was something we were taught from the beginning of our elementary years.

I often saw on pinterest and blogs wall decors of quotes and verses and I thought that it was inexpensive and that with a bit of creativity, a frame or two, arranged on a desk, a kitchen counter or the living room, could add a lot of that unique touch to a room. One sweet lady, Jen, whose blog I have been following for years (it’s such a delight to read !), has started a her own calligraphy business, Arabella Calligraphy. Here are some of her works:

How lovely is that ? Here are some other works from Pinterest. I find that not only they enhance a room, but they could be good reminders of God’s Word throughout the days.

 

Have an amazing weekend,

OOTD: Warm in Winter

 

Since I won’t be able to blog much next week I thought I’d do my first OOTD on the blog ! Well, it’s not really the outfit of the day but since I have that on my camera roll I thought I’d do a little post just for fun.

Skirt and top: H and M

I love wearing skirts on almost a daily basis ! However, I find it hard to shop during winter and to find that skirt you can mix and match with lots of tops and, at the same time, has a fabric that is thick enough to keep you warm (and not overly expensive). Where I live in France, there is almost never snow, but boy- the wind is blowing ! I got myself this ultra thick black patterned skirt at H and M for 29 euros and I have a feeling, because of its quality, that I could keep it forever. It kind of reminds me of a blend of vintage skirts and the little black dress 🙂

Have an amazing week !
