Today I continued exploring my French obsession :)) Even better, Facebook friendly suggested me another French online store – Sézane. It reminded me instantly of Rouje about which I wrote so fondly before. Maybe, Jeanne Damas was also inspired by it when creating her own brand Rouje.
What makes me happy is that I get more Southern fashion input now. I was namely a bit afraid that the Scandinavian style has made me into an eternal lover of gray color and minimalistic jewelry :)) Another thing that made me happy was this little video on their Instagram – about Barcelona (btw, they are cheating, because I can see the oranges in the trees. And oranges mean it is winter :)). All that brought me back to my dreaming times.
When I used to read the books about French art de vivre and about the French style – to inspire myself in the cold and boring autumn months back in Norway. When I used to stand in the warm shower, on some dark January morning, before work, and imagine myself on the sunny streets of Barcelona wearing a long summer dress. And when I used to put on some sunny music or Barcelona songs on a rainy summer day in Oslo.
So I decided to share this list with you. Who knows, maybe, there are fellow dreamers out there who need this gentle reminder. That sometimes it happens that dreams come true. And sometimes in much brighter colors that I imagined.
Here is my list!
George Ezra – Barcelona
Madcon, Paperboys – Barcelona
Ed Sheeran – Barcelona
Giulia Y Los Tellarini – Barcelona
Felix Jaehn – Ain’t Nobody (Loves me better)
The last song because its video was filmed in Barcelona. And this video I would also watch several times a month, especially during the darkest days of December. Because in December there would be many free days for the Spanish workers, and my dear man would travel to Barcelona, and I would stay in Oslo, working, freezing and dreaming.
Some other things that put me in the sunny dreaming modus:
to eat an orange
to listen to Brazilian bossa nova
to go through my old summer photos
to browse summer dresses online
to danse samba (or salsa) in the living room
Do you have your recipes for a sunny mood? I would love to collect some of them!
