My summer favorite

Fashion,Outfit,30 June 2015

*In collaboration with Marks & Spencer

Yes, I have an entire wardrobe full of black clothes and I wear black almost every day all around the year but when the heat kicks in I make a 360° turn and cheat on black with white. All white outfits are extremely appealing to me summer after summer, year after year. Nothing feels as clean, fresh and crisp as a clean white shirt or dress next to tanned bare legs. Now you’re probably wondering where my tanned legs are but since that’s never going to happen, I’ve stopped dreaming and decided to enjoy white mini shorts ignoring the fact that it looks like I’m wearing white trousers :D.

Speaking of favorites, I think it’s mentionable that the material linen is another favorite of mine. I still remember one particular summer during my teens when I wore a pair of white linen trousers almost every day for the entire summer. I literally panicked when I ironed them a little bit too hot and managed to get a burn mark on the leg. I swear I cried my eyes out but thankfully my mum bleached the mark away and they were good to go again.

This particular set from Marks & Spencer is perfectly relaxed yet chic for the warm days that finally arrived and hopefully came to stay. For long!

Good morning. This morning has been one of those special and rare ones. I’ve spent lots of time enjoying breakfast in bed, just me and my daughter. I didn’t mind bread crumbles and pieces of apple on my sheets and I didn’t rush into making the bed, get organized, go outdoors and stick to all our other oh so beloved routines.

Yesterday while playing in the park I realized that my little baby is growing up so fast and soon she’ll be an independent girl with her own thoughts, dreams, problems and secrets. I can’t help myself from feeling sadness over the fact that one day she won’t be my baby anymore even though I know I’ll probably cherish every age, phase and stage of her life just as much as this one, but in a different way.

Right now we are each others everything and I know everything about her. Right now I know her better than she knows herself and I teach her new things every day and we explore the world together. Not only do I teach her everything I know, but she also teaches me more than she will ever be able to understand until she one day becomes a mother herself, if she so chooses.

Having a child is the bravest and most important journey I’ve been given, chosen and taken on in life. Everything else seems so secondary. I struggle with new feelings and fears I never knew existed. Who would have known that a child would change me so much but still make me feel like the person I am today was the plan for me all along?
