Happy Easter!

As much as I longed to do an Easter post in light and summery colors and clothes, our temperatures would not allow for it.. Life has returned back to layering in the past couple of days, and keeping up with the ever changing weather, ranging from from thunderstorms to blue and sunny skies in a matter of hours, has been the main focus when getting dressed and out.

Making the most of a sunny spell, having  a coffee in a charming café

watching the leaves coming out ;)



Capsule pieces: Jeans, black blazer, grey sweater and black t-shirt
Accessories: La Femme aux Semelles de Vent 90 Carré, MT Collection waterfall necklace in blue jean (new color, also new: lagoon) Kelly Dog bracelet in black croc, MT Collection horn bracelet in noir, Bolide in Bleu de Prusse



For those who enjoyed the recent post on a layered look, here a quick snaps on how the above adapted to the changes in temperatures throughout the day... with and without the jacket
scarf worn in criss-cross knot (scarf wound once around the neck beforehand)



while wearing a t-shirt underneath always kept me prepared me for a sudden spell of warm sunshine..
Scarf in a asymmetrical shoulder wrap, together with a waterfall necklace in blue jean

last variation: covering the t-shirt with the blazer, wearing the scarf in a low criss-cross knot, secured with a MaiTai Collection black horn scarf ring in the moyenne size




















Wishing everyone a very happy Easter weekend!

  1. Lovely pix as usual and I shall look forward to more colourful pictures once the weather plays along. Yay to the trees being in leaf again, shrubs and trees are changing on a daily basis here. I am so with you on the layering, April showers and all that.

  3. You look lovely and comfortable. What other drinks would be available for us coffee NONdrinkers? LOL

    The Lagoon necklace is beautiful and reminds me a great deal of green turquoise.

    My eggs are up, too, and I hope you had a lovely Easter!

  6. I hope you had a lovely Easter MaiTai. Always nice seeing Ms Bolide. Whenever I see her she makes me wish I had gone with Epsom instead of Clemence when I bought mine years ago. Oh well... live and learn. I'm loving your neutrals as well. Have a wonderful week. xxS

  7. You look beautiful, as always, my dear MaiTai.
    The red background is the perfect frame for your look, which I love.
    Can´t wait to welcome Ms. Blue Jean. She is so pretty!
    We are also dealing with cold weather again. It has even snowed in April, imagine!
    I wish you a lovely week ahead. Warm hugs to you, Manuela

  9. Yes, the weather in Europe is typically cold for Easter , one solace is that it can make for great scarf wearing opportunities.
    Your Femme is so so beautiful ! I have dipped into the beauties of this design with my treasured cashmere shawl , and would love to find this one too.
    I also love your photos of the typical Provencal water fountain and square with plane trees . Many happy days have been spent in places like this , and it's time to revisit that part of France .
    Your latest necklaces are beautiful , and you look amazing wearing the blue one .

    1. We scarf lovers always have the best of both worlds.. it's either beautiful outside, or perfect scarf wearing weather ;) Glad the post triggered happy memories. Wish I'd be twins with you on the cashmere La Femme!

  10. It is very simple dressing Mai Tai, yet, you look so elegant and sophisticated. I am going to copy this, but I do not think I will look as good as you.
    If you can, some more ideas for a layered look,it's much better seeing it on a person.
    thank you.

    1. I have always been a fan of simple dressing, and it is so nice to hear you like the look. Layering is not only great when having to adapt to differences in temperatures, but also when having different occasions. Later in the day we picked up DS from a party, and had drinks with the other parents. I took the grey sweater off, and wore the t-shirt and blazer with just the necklace.

  11. Dearest MaiTai,
    Hope you and your family had a most joyous Easter! You look so lovely, relaxing and enjoying under the gentle sun - you're simply glowing. We seem to be having very similar weather here too, and indeed so wonderful to greet the fresh buds and leaves again. Dear MaiTai, I cannot tell you how much I admire and appreciate each and every one of your fabulous outfits, and your most beautiful and unique designs. Your 'once around criss-cross' is one of my favorites <3 Hoping the skies will warm up for you soon, sending you much love and big happy spring hugs xxx

    1. Hope you had a most happy and wonderful Easter too, my Dearest! I was hoping for a light colored spring look for Easter, but Mother Nature decided on colors which matched the 'La Femme'. Having her out was more than compensating for any warm sunshine though <3 Sending you much love and happy hugs right back x
