February Blues (it can only get better...)

Every year it's the same - February just isn't fun! Too little sun, too wet, too gray, too much rain, too much work, too little tennis, too cold... makes me all grumpy and moody. What's needed here is more soft velvet and warm red, I thought - and when we had an hour without rain (yeah!!!) I ran out to give it a go. You won't believe how much fun high heeled photo shoots are in the mud! (That actually made me laugh, slipping and sliding around, hoping noone would see me and naturally, still struggling with the remote.. one day I'll get it.)

Maybe I just need a better attitude; maybe I'm in the wrong place and climate (Australia should be nice right now, or Brazil...). What about you? Do you have a crisis month?

I jus have to say, Sabine...the photographs you take are always worthy of a magazine. The way you shoot your style is just phenomenal. And I am in love with the third photograph - it looks like something that should be used in an advert!! :)

January is kinda a crisis month- the let down of the holidays, the snow, the winter... and this year I got the flu!

Kelley Anne said...

I know what you mean. I'm feeling that way too. Too much rain, too much mud. Too much grey in the sky. Blaaah. I'm ready for some sun. Great outfit. I love your shoes and velvet.

Sher - you are so right! Just 2 more days to go. I regret not having given you a close-up of the blouse because it's actually velvet, too. Vintage 70s and every time I wear it I feel like John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. (But only with jeans, not with this Nicole Farhi dress which gives it a bit of class, I hope).

Cute shoes!

I definitely have a crisis month, I think February is when the new year malaise really sinks in. However, I usually find I have one good month one bad, just to keep the Yin-Yang in balance!
Lovely photos, such an English setting, with the juxtaposition of red. Brilliant.

Wishing you wonderful weekend and, please, do not forget to participate in my spectacular Giveaway!!! :-)))
