I really like spring. When asked what my favourite season is, I'll say summer, but that's not actually true. I like late spring and early autumn the best because the temperature is warm enough and as the seasons are changing the atmosphere is somehow different. And spring in Britain is kind of better than anywhere else. As soon as one can see the sun, there's people with practically no clothes outside. Having spent many a spring in Finland with its snowy Mays, the lack of snow is still one of the happiest spring realizations for me. Even though I've always liked spring, I never could really enjoy it in Finland. The sunshine reflecting from the snow is always so bright that every time I'd go out I'd get a headache or a migraine. So, that's not happening right about now, and it makes me happy that it's spring. Yay.

It also makes me happy to wear less clothes on a daily basis. My sense of cloth proportion in relation to the weather is quite poorly, which means that some days I still wear a cardi and a jacket and tights but some days I go out in only a dress. Honestly, if I'm too hot in today's outfit, my logic is to wear less the next day despite what the weather forecast is. How stupid is that? I'll probably catch a cold soon, but at least it's spring!

P.S. Have you guys seen the Veronica Mars movie? I've not been so happy about a film in such long time, and have been fangirling/obsessing about it so much! You can be sure that if you love Veronica Mars, I love you.

I'm a fan of spring too. But it can be a lie, the weather. The sun can look bright but it's still chilly outside.

Last week was lovely, wasn't it?
