Beaming sun, cloudless skies, calm waters, and with sudden urge for vongole, I found myself in the land of fish a.k.a Marsaxlokk on a perfect Spring-day. The crystal clear sea, brightly coloured boats, the vivid market, and ridiculously good seafood, I feel like a tourist every time I visit this place.
With such weather I took the momentarily opportunity to bare my legs for some much needed sun. Didn’t really get much of a tan, but it was a great excuse to get out of my skinny jeans.
Mixing night-time wear with day-time wear is what last Sunday’s look was all about. There is something sexy and mystical in wearing an ordinary cocktail LBD at daytime. I wore this dress probably twice in the last 2 years, and in a means to get off the guilt-wagon for wearing it one too little times, I found a more easy and casual look to fit in to a daily-wear.
This month’s edit of The Plaza Diaries took me to a very french, colourful and spring-savvy store: Promod. Newly refurbished at the Plaza and on board with my favourite trends this spring, their new collection is as tantalising as ice-cream on a hot summer’s day.
Talking about ice-cream, I couldn’t help pick out an outfit from their ice-cream and pastel hued collection with a combination of basics in white & grey. It took me a matter of two clothing racks to pick out this grey pencil skirt & pale salmon-coloured oversized jumper. The skirt’s knit and sweatshirt-like fabric really gives a touch of sporty luxe to an otherwise sophisticated pencil cut. Adding to the sporty look, I paired some bright & extremely comfortable sneakers also from Promod. A true favourite! Aren’t they just perfect for a day round the shops? ‘Course that also means staying fresh & hydrated all day, and nothing beats a Strawberry Swirl smoothie from Dr. Juice to keep me going.

What would mark the beginning of spring season if not a sunny day wearing my trustworthy trench-coat? The weather was perfect for this light & classic gabardine coat without having to wear jumpers and hundreds of layers beneath to keep warm. Just a neoprene vest (& a light cardi over it, cause the feeling of jacket lining on my skin makes me quiver. weird. I know.) and a comfy pair of black high-top converse. I guess spring is finally really here!
I’ve got major post-weekend blues going on this morning. I’m back to work after a 5-day, well-deserved (& needed) weekend. I planned to spend my days off by doing nothing other than soaking up the sun, lunch-ing, sipping on milkshakes, reading a good book, visiting new cafe’s, going back to places I’ve haven’t been for in a while, jotting down notes etc. Simply, ‘refreshing’ a little from this creative rut, routines & deadlines especially with new and exciting projects in-the-making. So here is my Sunday outfit, I wore to go for a walk & quick fix of my favorite smoothie from Dr. Juice (best hangover cure ever!)
