Crisp spring air

We are having the warmest February I can remember! Blame it on global warming but one can't help but feel slightly "lucky" to have such nice and sunny end of winter days here in Portland. All the cherry blossom trees have been "tricked" and they are in full bloom right now. I will have to snap some pictures and show them to you before they are all gone!
I also have not been wearing my Balenciaga motorcycle jackets that much this winter. I remember when I first bought them more than two years ago I practically was living in them (yes them, I have two). Since they are the most expensive clothing items I have in my closet, I am careful on when to take them out. Being as rainy as Portland can be, as you can imagine I don't get to wear them that often. Anyway, I think it's now safe to bring them out again. The best thing about these jackets on a warmer winter days is they look better unzipped. I think my new necklaces are happier this way too.
More work stuff this week. It is going to be a mess this week as we organised everything in my office but hopefully everything will go smoothly! Have a lovely week and thanks for reading! <3

A typical work attire with PS1

I have been MIA again in the past week or so, I know. I have the perfect reason/excuse, if you can hear me out. After we first opened the office for 10 years, we have finally decided it is time to expand. We want to install a second exam room to accommodate our growing patient base. As you can imagine the work that needs to be done before this can happen. We have been busy doing our financial planning, talking/negotiating with suppliers, bank, our accountant then finally have to sort out new arrangement on where everything should be fitted in the existing space.
Well we are about half way into the process right now. In the next week equipment's will start to come in so I am expecting some messiness (hopefully not too much as I am kind of a neat freak) as well as adjustment both for us and our assistants but it all will be worth it :)
I should be blogging more regularly once everything is done. In the meantime, here is what I wore yesterday to work. One Instagram friend asked me how come I never show me actually AT work pictures haha. My answer is, it is your typical medical office setting and I am pretty sure you guys would not be interested seeing that :D.
Hope you are having a great day everyone, thanks for reading ;)

Spring in January: floral skirt, pink top and Givenchy Antigona

While the east coast is covered with snow, the west coast (northwest) has been having a mild winter (so far). Today I want to channel my inner country girl vibe and pair this long floral skirt with booties. A touch of a bright lippy colour and sweater make the colour contrast more eye catching. I think all I need next is a winter hat to reminiscent that Taylor Swtift cool girl vibe, right?
Speaking of hats, I still have not jumped on board. My job requires me to be indoor so I just can not justify spending money on hats that I probably would only wear for a hour on my day off. What do you guys think? Should I invest or this is a trend that will pass? My Norwegian friend Anne Mari (her cool Instagram here) started a shopping ban challenge earlier this month and invited me to join. I have been good so far. In fact, I have managed to let go two of my bags (on consignment), The only "new" thing I am wearing right now are these cool ear pins I got from a Spanish seller off Etsy. This is such a cool concept and can I tell you they are so comfortable on the ears. Without the posts on the back,  I can sleep, shower or travel on the airplane. Check out her shop off Etsy (link below), they are made really well and gorgeous in person!
