Take your time, smell the fresh air and wear a River Island dress

Siren strappy heels (similar here $128 USD)
Country Road leather gloves (similar here $116 USD)

Hi all! Hope you're all doing fine. Thank you for every single comment, I am so overwhelmed with the kindness. Blogging is so much more fun than facebook and twitter combined!

Today it was a peaceful day. Last time I blogged my head was buzzing with wedding ideas for myself and for my friend (but mainly for her, because she is actually engaged), and it was so tiring.
But now, with the sun shining, and the birds tweeting, and the Spring breeze sweeping through, I was able to clear my head. Having a lot of spare time, I finally finished up with my errands now, and I now have  the time to read. I love reading, but with my fashion job I barely got through a book's chapter. Now I get to catch up.
On my to-read list: Summer and the City (Candance Bushnell), One Day (David Nicholls), Catch 22 (Joseph Heller) and the Wicked Grimmerie book (which is a photo diary of the musical).

What books are you guys reading now?

One thing that makes me happy, is seeing little kids on the bus/train who have their kids buried in their books. When the last book from Harry Potter came out, I saw this everywhere in Sydney, and that, was a fantastic book.
I hope everyone has a great week!!

xx Natalie

gorgeous outfit! I haven't read in such a long time. I actually got a book from the library with the intent to read but never did. I got so busy and forgot about it and racked up some late fees...lol :)

I love your blog! Your photos are amazing and you look beautiful - the dress is sooo nice! :) I agree - blogging is better than everything! I have a huuuuge reading list. Ii've read One Day and it's wonderful (much better than the film!) At the moment I'm reading The Kite Runner for a school project, but I plan on reading "Looking for Alaska - John Green" next :) I'm a major Harry Potter fan - that was me as a 6 year old with the first book :) I'm following you now, it'd be cool if we could follow each other? :D

someone looks like a goddess in that russet dress & gold headband the light reflecting. i'm reading "Last Night at Chateau Marmont"
by Lauren Weisberger (she wrote the novel "The Devil Wears Prada). i've read 2 of the books in "the carrie diaries" series. i like them both better than her sex & the city originals.
