{A few much needed fashion books}

The past few days feel like they were years and years ago. With the much anticipated summer holiday inching closer with every sunrise, it’s hard to continue focusing on anything school-related.  Despite the feeling that I’ve already finished my schooling, and the irresistible urge to ignore my homework, I know that I need to continue my studies for the next few weeks. Even so, I’m sure it will be impossible to follow through. On the bright side, this week has  gotten off to an excellent start. My Sunday was spent doing god knows what (I’ve already forgotten…) Yesterday I got out of school to visit the city, then gave a lesson, and went to a late band rehearsal. Today I was lucky enough to enjoy a much needed day off with close friends in the heart of Chicago. It was spent taking the train with some of the most incredible girls in the world, enjoying big breakfasts, walking around the “touristy” parts of the windy city, taking elevators, and thinking about things over a hot cup of tea. Before turning in and facing tomorrow, I thought I’d spend a bit of time sharing a few things that bring smiles to my face.

Today has gone pretty well so far, a descent amount of time for breakfast, long, lazy classes (we do nothing on Fridays), and a lot of fruit (yum, pineapple!). During my lunch break I flipped through a few editorials and quickly fell in love with Craig McDeen’s Eternal Optimism for Vogue March 2012. Hope you fell just as deeply in love as I did.

In my past recent posts, florals have found a tight spot. Even in my last editorial post, I expressed some deep desire for spring weather to take its rightful place again (the second January ends).  Since then, I’ve stumbled over another beautiful (and sexy) editorial to help encourage spring to bloom. Straight from Vogue Italia’s February issue, this stunning lookbook (photographed by Greg Kadel) highlights some of Constance Jablosnki’s impeccable beauty. Even next to the picture-perfect flowers, she radiates gorgeous.
