I want it to be summer already. I want to be thin and muscular and tanned, and spend warm, lazy afternoons doing nothing whilst wearing floaty cotton jumpsuits. How great are the patterned vest/trouser combos from the latest Ilana Kohn collection? I want it all.

Edit: I saw something immediately after posting this that reminded me why I shouldn't be wishing my life away by pining for summer:
Stop waiting for Friday, for summer, for a boy to fall in love with you. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make something of the moment you’re in right now.
This recalls my New Year's Resolution post. I couldn't find an original source for the above (oh Tumblr, you are naughty) does anyone know where it came from? 


  1. true quote. when I was a kid and younger I thought my life will start when x/y/z happens... and guess what those times either came and went or have yet to happen. so I'm learning that if I want something I better work hard and get it myself, instead of waiting around for someone else to give it to me.

  2. A beautiful collection and I too want to be thin, muscular and tanned :o)

  3. I love the casual pajama feel of the collection - especially the exaggerated flower print. I tend to shy away from loose and flowy, but I fear those floral pants are beginning to whisper in my ear!

    That quote was a nice reminder for me as well, though it was more a reminder to stop dreading the future and instead use today to make tomorrow better :)

  4. it's so true, but sometimes hard to recognise. I feel like instead of looking forward I'm always looking back, romanticising past memories and wanting them to repeat themselves. Sometimes it's better to just go out and make new ones! x


I love to hear from you, and will try to reply to comments as soon as possible! :)
