Spring has sprung and I´m ashamed

 

OK, so I have not written about my wardrobe for a while, and you may think it´s because there is nothing much to say, as I am on a shopping-ban…

Well, ehem….I haven´t kept my ban and I´m ashamed.

How will I survive a shopping-ban?

A week ago the city was having a taste of Spring! I took a long walk through the inner city and just enjoyed the light, the water and all the happy faces.

That will be handy when boredom strikes and I need coffee, or just to get me through my workload that is just massive atm. This is my Monday outfit – all black!
