In Love with Pink Orchids

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed some wonderful sunshine that Melbourne has put on for us! I felt great over the weekend knowing that the bulk of the house move was completed. Whenever you move, no matter how pleased you are with the new place, you will always need some additional time to grow into the new abode to call it 'home'. I like to speed up this 'break in' process by buying a fresh bunch of flowers to put into the new house. To me, flowers bring a breath of life to the new home, and marks the start of a new beginning that lingers with a mild but delicious scent to savour for days to come. This time though, I didn't just bring home the traditional bunch of fresh flowers, instead, I thought a few beautiful stems of pink orchids will be even better. My orchids stood nice and tall in its pot, happily blossoming and flaunting its beauty for everyone to see =) Seeing the joy they projected and inspired by their intense flush of pink hue, this weekend, I decided to wear something in that same intense colour.

I love seeing some serious colours in winter and it's a shame that there is just not enough of it. Bright pockets of fresh colours can be so refreshing and heart warming in the cold weather. I find that they can really brighten my mood and energise me when I'm feeling a little grey.  

These pants were meant to be cropped pants for the spring or early summer seasons. I accidentally ordered them in regular and so they have turned out to be pants instead, which I didn't mind at all. In fact, this actually worked out better since I had every intention to wear them out in the winter. Having that extra bit of length certainly helped with the insulation! 

A pair of cheerfully coloured pants mixed with a casual, fun patterned sweater means I was definitely weekend ready gone! I hope in your closet, you also have a pair of 'pick-me-up' that is a little heart warmer to help you battle through this winter cold!
