So much living gets packed into a week and we measure a lot of our success by what we get accomplished.
A lot happens in those 7 days. chapters are read, meals get made, floors get swept, family is tended to, blog posts are published and pets are cuddled.
On top of the domestics duties I make certain that I take my walks as they are a priority, I practise some Yoga and there's the mandatory time set aside to savour many restorative cups of tea so it is not all work and drudgery!
This week I have been browsing online at the Spring collections...which can be a wee bit tempting.
One NEEDS to make some time for fun...a girl can dream...
I have been looking online at Kate Spade's gorgeous website and lusting after some of her scarves and shoes.
There is something refreshing about her line of goods...it's a little bit girly and whimsical.
I don't know if she would take that as a compliment but I do mean it in the nicest possible way.
I am so in love with this beautiful Giverny scarf.
If I still feel passionate about it after a few days I may buy it, but in the meantime I am still very happy with my white linen scarf.
L'Occitane almond milk is my favourite body moisturizer...
I slather it on my legs and arms after showering and it has a very subtle scent.
A little goes a long way so a jar will last many months...it's a little bit of every day luxury.
I think this scarf was an Eileen Fisher from several seasons past.
The versatility of white was the reason that I chose this at the time.
I like it for summer and it goes so well with so many things that I own.
You can use it as a shawl over a sleeveless top or dress and it is very feminine.
Now back to that gorgeous Giverny scarf!
it has such a pretty pattern that I can envision wearing with many of my solid tanks and tops.
It would be a versatile accessory and one that I could keep for years to come.
My birthday is in a few days so maybe I will splurge.
It's not a milestone birthday so there will not be a lot of fuss and bother.
My husband and I will go out for a meal, perhaps with our best friends.
There is a brunch planned for the weekend following my weekday birth date.
Now getting back to that scarf...
Sometimes a gal just wants to give in and throw caution to the wind and buy something fun,
besides do I always need to be sensible and thrifty?
I keep seeing pretty patterns for Spring in all the fashion magazines that I flip through...
have I convinced you?
Maybe you'll buy it and I can live vicariously through you!
What are you tempted to splurge on?
Have you got your eye on something to add to your wardrobe this season?
