It's Friday afternoon here, and we're about to head South for the weekend to our friends' beach house.
Spring is well and truly here (for the time being, anyway) and day time temperatures have been a very pleasant 24 degrees C.
I've dug out my Spring stuff, and have realised that I most definitely have a Spring uniform.
It consists of skirts with cotton knits and tees:
|J Crew cotton sweater, J Crew tweed pencil skirt, APC sandals|
Of course, my summer uniform is similar, but I substitute knits for sleeveless tops and cardigans.
Another Spring favourite is jeans slightly rolled up with long-sleeved tees and the same knits:
|Karen Walker tee, Leon & Harper jeans, Repetto shoes|
I don't wear jeans or pants at all once our summer hits, as it's way too hot. I enjoy wearing them in Spring, though.
The next picture is totally unrelated to my wardrobe navel-gazing, and is here for the lovely Naomi, from the blog Coulda Shoulda Woulda
Naomi recently went on a trip to Austria, and posted some amazing pics of her visit, including the most amazing Kachelofen (Austrian Radiator).
Kachelofen are traditional ways of heating pubs and other buildings, and some of them are absolutely beautiful, with intricate decorations and detailing.
Others look like Daleks:

J's father is Austrian, and there are some fab Kachelofen in his village. The one above is in a pub located halfway up a mountain called the Zwolferhorn. Last summer we were there, and my daughter pointed out that their Kachelofen looks very Dalek-like!
As it was summer, it wasn't on, but we've spent many a winter evening in front of a Kachelofen, warming up Apres Ski.
Seeing as this is a rather random post, I thought I'd also include a couple of pictures of chairs that I particularly like.
I'm planning to get the two below after our upcoming renovations are finished.
Or should I say, if our renovations ever get done.....
|Jardan Camper chair|
|Jardan Archie sofa|
Both of them are from Jardan, an Australian family-owned furniture company based in Melbourne.
I love some of their items, and am planning to put these two chairs in our new living area (if it ever gets built)
I love the colours of both of them, but am undecided as to whether I'll go for the yellow or not.
Seeing as we've yet to put our DA (Development Application) in to Council yet, we'll have plenty of time to ponder which colours to get!
That's enough randomness.
I'm awaiting the arrival of a small J Crew delivery, and an Everlane blouse I scored on ebay for a very good price.
Hope you're having a great Thursday or Friday, depending on where in the world you live.
