*sighs* Sad that Easter weekend is over but happy at the thought of a four day week. As well as being a favourite MGMT throwback, the title of this post very much expresses how I feel about the journey to Friday night. Much unlike these ootds, however, I am currently in my dressing gown with a cup of sugary coffee trying to find some motivation.

Rather than the usual bank holiday escapades, I enjoyed a rather refined couple of days eating, drinking, and laughing a lot with one of my favourite people. 
(Honestly, the amount of time I spend in restaurants and bars, I should probably start a completely separate blog; see photos for details.)

I hope your weekend was as enjoyable as mine however you spent it :)

These outfits do not reflect what I've worn this weekend, but are pretty much the colour scheme I opt for during the week. Soft, desaturated and familiar, clothes in these tones are so easy to reach for when I'm half asleep and am having a wardrobe calamity.

In between enjoying the rare British sun this weekend, I rewatched one of my all time favourite films - The Devil Wears Prada. As well as the treasure trove of quotable lines,
 (Florals, for Spring? Groundbreaking.), the film is, unsurprisingly, full of fashion inspiration.
As much as the cliche "transformation" scene is overdone, Andy's work wardrobe alone makes the second half of the film worth watching. From delicate shirts and Chanel chains to knee high boots and elegant jumpers; it makes me want to slip on some heels and a fitted jacket every Monday morning.

We'll see how that pans out.

Would you wear any of these looks?
