Moody Monday: April showers

I don’t like rainy days. I try, for as much as possible, not to leave the house when it’s raining. I don’t have a decent rain coat and I always get dirty and wet. However, there’s something (je ne sais quoi) about warm-weather rain that I do like. Especially now, when April showers make the trees bloom and the grass grow, and everything smells so nice. So, after a rainy weekend, here’s a Moody Monday collection dedicated entirely to it.

Moody Monday: Easter

Some of you may have celebrated Easter yesterday, and some of you are celebrating on Sunday. I’m part of the latter category, so I feel that some egg dyeing and bunny watching inspiration can’t hurt. The theme of today’s Moody Monday is just that: Easter traditions and innovations.

Moody Monday: polka dots

Polka dots – I love them, you love them, your mom loves them and your sister, too. This cute print is not only cheerful, but also timeless, and I totally understand if your want to completely surround yourself with it: on dresses, armchairs, bracelets, cakes, pillows and purses. Put polka dots on anything, and it will look sweeter, I promise. This week’s Moody Monday is spotted and dotted all over the place.

Moody Monday: Picnics

One of my favorite things to do when the weather is warm is to go for picnics. I just love packing treats and then riding my bike somewhere to enjoy them with someone (usually, the boyfriend). Playing games and taking pictures may also be involved. Yesterday was the first picnic of this year, which got me in the mood for pretty pictures on this theme.

Moody Monday: Vespa

I have a huge love for bicycles, but I also have one for Vespas. I find them charming and feminine, retro and timeless, and I have to say I’d love one for myself. That’s the reason why I cannot resist any Vespa pictures, and I tend to collect them on Pinterest or Tumblr. It should come as no surprise that today’s Moody Monday will feature lots of pretty scooters.

Moody Monday: Peter Pan collars

Peter Pan collars are probably one of the biggest trend of the last year or so. And I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon! I imagine everyone loves them, because I see them everywhere: on the street, on the runways, on fashion blogs. Their perfect roundness, the delicate and subtle way in which they follow the line of the neck make them desired by ALL the girls. This week’s Moody Monday is all about Peter Pan collars, in all of their cuteness.

Moody Monday: Mouthwatering

This spring, more than ever before, I am completely caught up by pastels. And it’s not just clothes: it seems like even food looks more delicious in these tones. They don’t call them “candy colors” for nothing, now do they? In conclusion, this week’s Moody Monday is dedicated to mouthwatering pastels. Beware: they might wake your sweet tooth.

Moody Monday: Spring

My favorite season is almost here! There’s nothing I like more than the first grass of the year, the trees in bloom, the melange of perfumes in the air, buying the first hyacinths and daffodils and tulips, putting my winter coats in the back of the closet and taking out my trench coats, riding my bike wherever I go. You like it or not, I will praise each of these happening in the following weeks. I have to. I can’t help it. So here’s a Moody Monday post on this amazing season.

Moody Monday: Red and pink

I may not be celebrating Valentine’s Day – it’s not a holiday here – but I know many of you are. So, as a sort of compromise, I decided to make this Moody Monday not about hearts and love, but about two colors most associated with V-Day: red and pink. Although not a classic color combo, pink and red together are pretty popular in fashion and design right now, so I had plenty to choose from.
