Spring Fever


Finally moved my lazy body to the tennis court today. Lost 0-6 against gleeful husband (which made his day) and went home quite shattered. But at least the weather is beautiful, spring has sprung and the flowers are coming out - which makes me want to look as colourful as spring itself! Behind all the usual grey-black-white items I did find some colour in my wardrobe. To top my unusually happy outfit I even sat myself into the midst of some tulips. (Okay I might have gone a bit overboard with the colours... I might have even airbrushed myself slightly, but hey, that's what spring does to us, doesn't it?!)

suede jacket: le chateau vintage, jeans: jean-paul gaultier for la redoute, shirt: viktor & rolf, shoes: costume national

Poor sweetie lost to gleeful husband. ( Hug ). Love the soft, bright, sensuous colours in this post and you amongst the flowers.
Indeed, the weather in England is very cheerful today. What a wonderful way to celebrate England's finest weather;-)

Yes, darling Sarah - you'll be shocked to hear that I crushed some when jumping into them.

Mat - The backhand is my strength (double-handed), but the stupid serves are letting me down :(

Fashionistable said...

Great shots. Love the colours. Love, love the jeans. And your hair matches your shoes. Nice touch. They say it's not the winning it's the taking part that counts.....nonsense, we all love to win. Go get him next time ;-) xx

I love this outfit, love all the colour. Perfect for this time of the year. the turnup on your jeans is FAB, did it come like that or is DIY- if so how, you must teach us.

SabinePsynopsis said...

beingdena - Thank you! No diy this time; the jeans came like this, thanks to Mr JP Gaultier for La Redoute (~ 2006).

The colors all together are so classical fine oil painting, Rembrandtish with light. Loving the colors so much.

You will get him next time! (-: Love all the color - and those jeans with the striped cuffs!

OneCraftyFox said...

Girl, you are so funny! I love the creative collage, looks gorgeous. Fab outfit! Hope you had a fantastic weekend.

Oh, and I always lose to my hunny at everything (especially if running or coordination is required). The only thing I consistently win at is: Skip Bo. A card game where the primary skill is coordination. And maybe a bit of memory, although card counting is considered cheating in Vegas :)

Emily said...

these pictures scream spring. I love the colors!

Why are husbands such poor losers? Sometimes I intentionally allow my husband to win, just so the rest of my day I won't hear his excuses as to why I won, when he really should have.
