New lease on life!

I'm not sure if it's the fact it's actually springtime (well, a couple of sunny days make it for me!), or that there are so many gorgeous Spring/Summer collections hitting the stores, but I really feel today like I have a new lease on life!

I have a feeling of renewed energy and happiness today - hurrah. Just had a lovely cup of green tea and am planning on sushi for lunch, having my eyebrows done tonight and thinking of getting a pedicure this weekend...now all that would be complete if I could be on a picnic blanket in a beautiful park somewhere with my beloved, and a bottle of champagne - bliss!

Have decided I need to do a bit of a wardrobe evaluation for spring; we've been having a home cleanse, which has felt fantastic, so it's definitely time for my seasonal wardrobe cleanse too. (The most important reason is to see what I can get rid of, to make room for all my new lusts and loves, of course).

I have booked my tickets to Perth for my friend Kate's wedding - so exciting!! It's in November, on a winery, in the Perth hills....so now all I'm pondering (ok, freaking out about) is what to wear.

My perth friends are all very much summer girls, and I'm the quirky, fashion-y one who honestly never feels like I have the "summer" look down pat, so I want to fit in (yet remain my sense of style) and dress appropriately for the occasion. I'm thinking of getting my Perth hairdresser to come over to my parent's place to do my hair - might go Mad Men inspiration, or maybe a Lauren Conrad-esque look with long, loose waves/curls.

Elena, you might say, relax for godsakes! The wedding isn't until November, and it's only September now! Gah, it's one of my issues in life that I tend to stress about the silliest things. Le sigh.

Bought the cutest pair of faux snakeskin kitten heel pumps at the weekend btw, and am already plotting a Betty Draper skirt and pedal pushers to go with them. Will be grabbing denim pedal pushers too as soon as I see them. Ooh, and my supplied arrived yesterday for the wedding jewellery (I'm making Kate's bridesmaid's jewellery - all Audrey Hepburn/Breakfast at Tiffany's inspired. Exciting!) so I shall be a creative bunny for the next little while.

And did I mention that it's my birthday in approximately a month? I am at the stage where I'm freaking out about being old, which will soon transition into excitement for celebrating my birthday. I've been through this cycle since I was 19, so have almost come to expect it (and I don't let myself down, haha). I know my boyfriend has something nice planned on the Friday before my birthday, but I'm not sure how I want to celebrate with friends yet. Decisions, decisions. xoxox

I hope it gets more spring like very soon. I agree on teh sisue with summer dressing, I love summer but I never feel quite as with it as I do with autumn winter. I blame missing several summers and therefore having a wardrobe full of cold weather clothes.
