7 Reasons why I love Spring

Good morning, dear glamistas!

I already told you in one of my first posts why winter is my least favourite season.

But today we can rejoice, for the cold days are almost over, and I feel the need to celebrate with all of you some of the many reasons why I love spring ♥

1.   Days get longer and brighter, which can be deceiving when in the office, but definitely yields many more opportunities for after-work plans and allows you to have an actual social life 😉

2.   As a direct consequence of the above, my vital battery lasts longer, I feel full of energy and think of joining the gym, an outdoor yoga class, a running club, a hiking group… OK, you got me, it never comes to anything but picturing myself doing active things almost counts as practising a sport, right?

3.  Transitioning (#wordofthemonth) your wardrobe from a black-grey-white palette towards pastel colours and        floral prints is sooo much fun! I have a small selection so far but still on the hunt for the perfect floral dress 😉

4.  I can finally join outdoors activities willingly, and sitting outside of a cute cafe in England pretending you are in Paris sounds like the best Sunday plan ever!

5.   Change of colours in the city: all the dormant trees wake up as if by magic and everywhere you look there are now blooming flowers painting the streets in the most gorgeous pastel colours *love sigh* ♥

6.   The city starts buzzing with cultural and entertainment activities such as exhibitions, outdoors concerts, plays in the park… you name it! If you don’t have a plan for every day of the week is because you don’t wanna!

7.   One can finally stop being an onion girl and leave the house with a reasonable amount of clothes on.

Oh! and I can show my #bloggerankles without risking catching a cold in every photo shooting, how cool is that?

Bonus: people smile more and for no apparent reason (me included). Pay attention, spring is in the air, and that shy smile from a fellow citizen might be just for you!

What is your favourite season, are you also a spring-lover or prefer cooler days? Let me know in the comments!

Sending you flowery kisses, my lovelies!

    Ahh I love spring for all these reasons as well! The only thing that’s bad about spring is my allergies 🙁

    1. Saida

      25th March 2017 at 8:07 pm

      I hear you, for me is a weird thing as some years my allergies are really bad and some others is completely fine :^) You can still enjoy all the colours and beautiful light through pollen-proof windows though! 😛

    Me gusta muchísimo el look!! La verdad es que la primavera permite que llevemos looks más guays porque no tenemos que taparlo todo con un abrigo jajaja. Me encanta el toque de color con el pañuelo rojo.Y el jersey es chulísimo!! Un saludo guapa!

      25th March 2017 at 7:54 pm

    I think my most favorite thing about Spring is the longer days! I love that I can have time for a photoshoot after work if I really want to. It can be so hard to always get my photos done on the weekend so this allows for a little more flexibility <3

      20th March 2017 at 8:18 pm

      I totally feel you, Rina, lately my weekends have been quite packed with photoshootings and there is almost no time for relax and disconnection from a busy week. The longer days will hopefully help, also for the pretty light 😉
      Big kisses, lovely

    Loving the silhouette, dear! And how it looks very Parisienne! Very chic! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :*


    1. Saida

      19th March 2017 at 2:08 pm

      So glad you like it, Natalie! Dressing with a Parisian touch is as close as I can get from the French capital right now, but summer is close and perhaps a bit of travelling too 😉
      You too have a great Sunday, dear Xx

      Thank you dear Jeanne, I also liked those two qualities for this outfit, classy but comfy – fail safe 🙂
