It’s finally springtime in the city.
I woke up this morning and couldn’t believe the sunshine streaming through my window. Dublin is notoriously cloudy and rainy – and I was hardly surprised that the weather finally picked up on the last day of reading week. I have my first two finals tomorrow (happy Monday to me!), but I took a study break today to go outside and soak up some vitamin D.
I crave sunshine. Vitamin D supplements are my go-to when I’m feeling consistently down, and the vitamin has been seen to positively affect serotonin levels. I don’t think I’ve felt sunshine like this since my weekend in Rome, when I actually started sweating. It’s important to note that that also could have been milk sweats (the gelato is copious!).
It’s kind of refreshing to take a break from hot and heavy topics on this blog. Sunshine and a relaxing afternoon with a lovely friend put me in the mood to share one of my favorite things with you: florals.
Nothing screams spring more than the perfect floral piece, and mine this season is this cute little number I picked up from Zara for only 30 quid. It has the most flattering fit and I was obsessed with the baby blue. It can be dressed up or down, and is a welcome change from my eight (yes, eight) white cotton shirts. It does run small in the chest so I would size up (I’m wearing a size medium). Keep in mind it’s also European sizing which tends to run small.
Happy spring, people! Pull out your florals and get out to the park.
