I’m in one of those lazy Sundays moods that I’m not allowed to have right now. I long to stay in my bed for just a bit longer, though the alarm went off for the tenth time already and I know I can no longer prolong it. I must get up now.
Getting up early in the morning to take my blog pictures has become a somewhat regular bi-weekly chore. Those who enjoy making and creating of a blog will understand the importance of getting it just right. We know the struggle is real, the suburban city is calling us on early mornings when the lighting is just right – not too dark, not too light – and when there is barely no one in the streets to disturb us and our pictures. Our morning perfection.
Despite being quite reluctant to get up, I love those quiete mornings on a weekend and I love to watch the city to wake up. It never cease to amuse me.
You get to witness it all first hand. Streets are slowly getting busy, you’ll see the first busy bodies, rushing to get to their work, just because even they wanted those 5 extra minutes in bed. You’ll see those early birds sitting behind the window of some up and coming coffee shop, like it’s their wall of glass and nothing can get to them. Slowly sipping on their dark coffee and enjoying their scrambled eggs, either in couples, lazily discussing the latest affairs, or alone, scrolling through their phone.
I’m feeling the city vibe and I love it. It fills me with positive energy every time and as soon as the photo shoots are finished, we too tend to join the early birds and soon enough we sip a dark coffee and munch on scrambled eggs. Our little city heaven.
This is the moment I love to step back and for once watch the people on the street, sitting behind my wall of glass.
Let’s face it. We’re all at risk of high-speeding it through the highways of life with the inevitable exhaustion. This is why I cherish my moments of peace and quiet and I tend to be grateful for getting up early to witness it all.
Autumn has inevitably kicked in probably somewhere back mid – August, leaving us longing for more sunshine while looking ahead to those cosy dark evenings wrapped in blankets curled up on a sofa. I feel undecided. Strange feeling to have.
I am not ready to say goodbye to summer…
That’s why it so lovely to see a weekend filled with sunshine, making life all of a sudden so much brighter in the sunlight…I’m standing there, on the crossroad, somewhere in between summer and autumn, not wanting to move.
I think this feeling of mine is reflected in my latest city (or street style) outfit. Still keen to bare my legs, refusing to hide them away in black tights, and yet wary of cooler days and those breezy nights. The main reason I seem to be opting for sweatshirt dresses more and more. They’re still summery enough offering that extra layer of thickness to those, who like me, are in a need of an additional warmth. This grey little number is from Tobi, a fairly priced online shop I recently discovered (and ordered way too many clothes from), so do expect more outfit posts coming!
I completed this outfit with my weekend favourite LaRedoute backpack and New Look snakeskin trainers.
So it seems my life is all about those feelings. Feelings about staying in bed just a bit longer, feelings about city vibes and that desire to explore more. Feelings about weekends breakfasts and dark coffees…Feelings about pretty outfit…just for now, before Monday starts again…
