How are you doing today? And how has your week started? ♥
Mine has been great so far, my boss confirmed I can continue at work through the Summer, which was financially a huge relief for me. I also had an exam on Monday morning, isn't that just the best way to start the week? :D I've been also catching up with my school work, as there are a couple of deadlines this week. :)
I was once again spending my weekend with my wonderful boys (fiance and his best friend), and as I'm still a bit shy with the posing, I didn't got as many photos I had planned on having. But hey, at least we had a fabulous time. ;) Luckily for you, I found a moment yesterday (before my work shift) to take some photos for you.
One thing also keeping me busy is cleaning my closet. I've been going through it, removing items I know I won't be wearing. That kind of gave me reason to visit the flea market yesterday... So much for cutting back on shopping, huh? I must say I found quite a nice pile of things (I shouldn't have, but...). Coming home I noticed they all played along so nicely, that I decided to coordinate the whole closet more or less with their help. My goal is to have a closet where I can pair any top with any bottom, and make the whole thing look great effortlessly. I still have a long, long way to go, but it's worth trying, isn't it?
Anyway, you're probably waiting the pictures already. So enough of the blabbering. And here's my haul:
Beige H&M jacket, black baggy skirt, and dark green Hello Kitty canvas bag.
Neon yellow dress, white oversized shirt, and a floral skirt.
See-through knit (Mango) both in white and in dark brown, and jeans I'll cut into shorts (my next DIY project post!).
So, nice basic items, from my favorite brands. Who can guess how much I paid for these?
Under 30 euros.
Yes, really ;) I mean, that's more than I pay for most of the individual items I buy. Not bad for a haul, right?
Do you have hauls on flea markets like I do? And what's your favorite flea market?
So then, I have been searching new combinations in my closet, just for the sake of creativity. What I've learned so far, is that a great basic item can really put a whole outfit together. Like in the photos below, taken just before I headed off to work.
Outfit of the day
Boots: Kenkä Cosmos
Scarf: my mum's old
Bracelets: H&M (the one with keys), DIY (the one with crosses), and mum's old (pearls)
I was feeling great with this look, though I'm a bit disappointed I didn't have the time to photo this on Friday, when I first wore it, with curly hair and all. Instead, you have photos of me squinting my eyes in a wanna-be-sunlight. Oh, well. :D I'm so in love with that lace blazer from Mango, I mean seriously, I could wear it with every day! And it really spices up any outfit nicely, doesn't it? :)
So now it's your turn. What do you think of the look? Do you have pieces in your wardrobe that can tie any outfit together?
I wanted to try something new with my nails, so I decided to try to add some bling to my manicure. As it was my first time trying this, I kept it quite casual, and here's what it looks like:
Manicure of the day
White nails, pink pattern and little flower bling on both ring fingers and thumbs. Cute and girly, right? ♥
Then, a random little thing to the end of this post; three things making my life a little bit more towards Spring this week:
1. I got a new little piercing on my left ear. 2. Our living room garden. 3. DIY lace skirt.
What are the things making you feel like Spring at the moment? Dare to share with me! ♥
Have a lovely week!
