The first days of spring. As far as mood boosters go, it doesn’t get much better than this. That little jolt of surprise when you walk out the door into a soft spring breeze, the way the air smells and the feeling of those first rays of sunshine on your face. Perfect bliss.

And how much fun is it to assemble your first spring looks? Welcome back, bare ankles! This particular look is made up of some of my favorite basics. The shirt especially: LOVE affair. Not that it was love at first sight though, far from it. I’ve been chasing the perfect white shirt for quite a while. Requirements: a loose but not too baggy fit (casual but still feminine), a nice and breathable fabric (I just cannot deal with silk shirts…), limited transparency (oh yes, I’m a real prude at times), a straight collar (I’m a little over the whole Peter Pan thing), a few golden details (just because) and that perfect, right below the waist, length. No wonder it took a while, right? :) But this one fits the bill perfectly, so I expect it to become a regular in my daily looks (if I manage not to spill coffee/wine/food/lipstick on it, that is…).

Hope you’ve been enjoying these first days of spring as much as I have!
