I've been in a bit of a slump lately with end of semester assignments and exams causing me massive stress and a severe lack of inspiration and motivation. It's nice to know I've been somewhat missed in the bloggersphere/ twitterverse, thank you to anyone who has noticed my lack of activity on the blog and made sure I hadn't dropped off the face of the planet. During this time, I've redirected any energy left from uni, work and sleep deprivation towards exploring new and old music tastes on Spotify and reblogging the hell out of Tumblr.
In the midst of all this, I finally found my burst of inspiration in the Proenza Schouler Resort 2013 lookbook which happened to show up on my Tumblr dashboard. After reblogging three pictures and like-ing a handful of others, I realised my fondness for this collection was better suited to share on my blog. I haven't quite figured out what's so 'resort' about this collection, (in my eyes it's more ready to wear) but when you admire something so much, you wouldn't dare question its creativity. The Proenza boys (as I like to call them) said they were focused on "creating product: wearable, saleable clothes that girls want." It's fair to say they've succeeded in fulfilling their mission statement for this collection. The relaxed, boxy cuts of the jackets and coats, the slouchy pants and boyfriend jeans, the tailored leather pieces and the neon tweed (can't get over the ingenuity of the neon tweed) is everything I could ever want right now given my current mood and the weather.
Long story short. I'm back.
