An escape to the top of the world

Last month my boyfriend and I went on a little vacation in  the French Alps to visit his mother who leaves near Chamonix and the took this little trip as an opportunity to go up to l'Aiguille du Midi, a mountain peak culminating at 3842 meters, accessed by cable car, and offering a breathtaking view of the Mont-Blanc, but also the Aosta valley in Italy and the Swiss Alps.
Seeing the world from a different point of view was such a refreshing and resourcing experience and we got extremely lucky with the weather since there was not a single cloud in sight (even though the temperature up three was minus 12 degrees celcius). 

The only (other) animals that you can find up there are there fearless black birds called chough that seem to be totally oblivious of the void around them and of the altitude.

This day trip also gave me an excuse to sport a hand-made beanie (one of my obsession from the past Winter) one last time before its Spring and Summer exile in the back of my closet. This one is the Lucie beanie by Wool and the Gang in the color Pink Lemonade.

All dressed up and nowhere to go

River island, jumpsuit, floral, boho, flower, crown, nude, sandals, bangles
While browsing clothes online, I keep spotting beautiful pieces that would be perfect for weddings. I sadly have no weddings to attend this summer. However I might splurge on this River Island jumpsuit (if it ever comes back in stock) just so I can wear it with a flower crown, nude heels, gold bangles, mint nails and soft nude makeup, and pretend I'm the singer of a band performing at a romantic English garden wedding.
