This is what my room would look like if I wasn't living out of host families. They're great and all but how I wish it was really my own space. My two host mothers spent about half an hour talking about how messy I was and how they 'didn't mind, they leave my room to be my room,' but since I know they've each cleaned my room (in their respective houses) at least once I can't help but feel guilty. And I thought I was being good! (picture curtesy of arvidabystrom).
I'm off to London on Thursday and I couldn't be happier about it. I shall be doing lots of vintage shopping (prices otherwise are trop cher for me, damn Australian dollar), celebrating birthdays and generally living it up. These past few days has just been spent anticipating this, and lamenting the lack of warmth. The spring and summertime I see all over blogs and lookbook has not yet reached the north of France, and though I do sit outside in the sun and read my book, it's with the aid of jeans and a jumper. So I will not post here about the joys of springtime colour, but instead of my need for wintery basics a little out of my price range, and beautiful black and whites things I can only dream of. Note to self: wear heels once in a while, I know you're too tall for the oh so petite French, but you can do it anyway.

And I am in dire need of skinny black jeans (I know, who doesn't own a pair of skinny black jeans? What've I been wearing for the past four years? I can't say... I really can't). It's a toss up between these Cheap Mondays (unisex) from I don't like mondays (I know, I know enough with the Mondays), and the Neon Nights below, of Sass and Bide (though that would make three pairs of Sass and Bide jeans in my wardrobe).The Cheap Mondays come in at a much cheaper price (around $90AUS compared to $220AUS) but the fact that they're unisex deters me. Any thoughts?Mommy vs Daddy tee (from I don't like mondays)
And now for the more beautiful, less wearable offerings.

And alright, alright I'm not entirely defeatist. I'll leave you with some hope of spring thanks to Erez Sabag and The Clothes Horse. Have a great week.
