“April's air stirs in Willow-leaves...a butterfly Floats and balances” ― Matsuo Bashō, Japanese Haiku As it wasn't quite springtime when we took these pics, I decided to (over)compensate with a flower print...
I am thrilled that we finally got around to taking new photos for the blog. I was really missing it and this short photo session filled me with joy. I couldn’t wait to get home and edit the photos! I also had the perfect “excuse” : I needed to include this pretty 2-piece suit in a winter-appropriate outfit, so I chose a black turtleneck, added a few brooches & a faux fur coat to spice it up & voilà!
Now about the book: The Muse, by Jessie Burton. I got it a couple of months ago from Okian (you can see the unboxing here), because I’d heard some good reviews on BookTube. You might have heard of Jessie Burton as the author of the internationally published debut novel, The Miniaturist. The Muse is her second novel and it’s already a best seller. The narrative focuses two stories, one that takes places in England the 1960s and one that takes place in Spain the 1930s, both following the complicated history of a mysterious painting that was lost and then rediscovered. I am super excited to read a book that centers around the world of art and artists so I am looking forward to that. I’ll also post a review as soon as I’ve finished reading it.
I’m wearing: Costum albastru-petrol Woman Fashion London, Next booties, Mango velvet clutch with tassel, Zara turtleneck, H&M coat (old).
