I have a funny feeling that the colours of this outfit were inadvertently inspired by the Delpozo Spring/Summer 2014 collection I showed in this post. The serene trio of cream, white and periwinkle made it the perfect ensemble to relax and read a book in. One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to read a book each week. So far so good. Having my phone read out aloud to still counts as reading right? Well, at least that’s how I got to the end of Pride & Prejudice…
Due to my newfound love for reading, I was thrilled to see vintage books displayed in our Park Hyatt Melbourne hotel suite. Even in its Club Lounge, there is a library full of them. What joy and privilege it is to relax into a comfy couch and be transported into an imaginary world created by the words on a page! Especially if there are soft and squishy cushions to aid the visualisation process. After getting well acquainted with the cozy leather sofas in the Club Lounge, I found it difficult to leave, especially because they serve such delicious and healthy canapés…I used to be someone who didn’t know how to rest. My idea of relaxation is to do as many things as possible. I thrived on being busy. But since becoming a new mom and having to readjust to the pace of a newborn, I’ve learnt the importance of rest and recuperation. There’s nothing like a hungry baby who wants to be fed at 3 am each day to challenge your energy levels. No wonder in Psalm 46:10 God says, “Be still, and know that I am God.” Sometimes you have to slow down. I’m beginning to take a leaf out of my husband’s page, who has always prioritised downtime. There is great wisdom in knowing when to rest.
What about you? How do you relax and recharge? A trip to the Park Hyatt Melbourne certainly helps too!
I wish you a gorgeous weekend ahead! Let’s stay in touch via Instagram (@cecyliadotcom) shall we?

[spoiler title=”中文版”] 我觉得这套衣服的颜色是由Delpozo2014年春/夏季的时装受的启发。你可能还记得我在这篇博客里曾经显示了那些服装。这三个感觉宁静的颜色放在一起很合奏，很适合看书穿。我新年的决议其中一个就是一个星期读一本书。到目前为止，我的进展还不错。我的手机也帮助我大声念出书来？这也算读书吗？至少这就是我怎样‘读’完了简·奥斯汀的著作。
