A Dolphin-Loving Hippie

Hey lovelies! ♥ 

How are you today? How's your weekend?

I've been locked inside the apartment because of the rainy weather, but luckily I have pictures stored on my hard disc so I can write for you nevertheless. I started this morning with a cup of cappuccino and doing my nails (I can't wait to show the art for you, it's one of my favorites this far!), which to me is the perfect start for a weekend. I have gazillion things to do today still, but I found time to write just after we had a great little dinner.

Today's photos contain animals again (sorry if you find it boring...), but you can also find outfit photos on the bottom of this post. :) So, these photos were taken the day we went again to the amusement park, this time to go through all the rides - and to see dolphins, which are sort of a favorite to me. I just love them a lot.

I actually took about 250 photos of the dolphins (yes, 250 - there was movement, so I had to take A LOT) so naturally I had to make harsh elimination to get this post to a decent length. 

But here you have it, our visit to the dolphin show:

He's telling the audience to give applause. Cute, huh?

Trained to blow bubbles - unfortunately I was a bit too far to take a decent photo.

It never stops amazing me how that big of an animal can jump that high just from water. And through hoops.

Now, I know they have bigger and better shows abroad, but as I haven't seen anything else yet, this feels stunning to me.

Anyone else thinking Free Willy after seeing this shot?

After the show, there's a chance to go closer to the pool/tank and see the dolphins close up. I took the chance gladly with the camera ready in my hand.

Pose.

Such a happy little dolphin. :)

After dolphins, we hit the rides, I took a plenty more photos, and somehow we ended up once again to the petting zoo. I won't share many photos from there as I did so already on a previous post, but I had to share two cute ones of the puppies.

The other one's posing nicely, while the black one...

...was too busy figuring out ways to get through the fence and into my lap. The little sweetie put both front paws through the hole in the fence, and the nose as well, but somehow couldn't quite get out. :D

The day required quite a casual look, but as the weather was amazing with the sunshine and all, I just had to dress up a bit. I decided to wear two items I've recently customized, and this is how they looked together:

Outfit of the day

Shorts: DIY (see here)
Top: Gina Tricot/DIY (the fringe with beads)
Sandals: SpiritStore
Plastic bead necklaces: cousin's old
Metallic necklaces: H&M
Butterfly ring: Gina Tricot
Quadrangle ring: Gina Tricot
Aviators: Citymarket

I loved this outfit, it was comfy, but still with a lot of personality. The fact both top and the bottom were more or less customized by me was just an icing on the cake, it felt amazing to wear unique pieces. And I think people liked the outfit, after all, it's kinda cute, totally harmless (no showing private places, no insulting prints) and most of all, fun. And the sandals I'm wearing are something I have in four different colors (not the exact same model, but they're all from the same store, so... (Yes, this is a warning for you having to see a lot of them if the weather is appropriate.)

Now, I want to hear your thoughts. What do you think about the look? And, would you maybe like a tutorial for a top like that?

Soon it's time for me to go make some dessert (trying to make crème brûlée with chocolate chips and strawberries - will post a recipe, promise!) and then read both your blogs and some school material. Yep, I still have a lousy little exam and a friend for it as well on Monday... And it'll be an interesting day because of other aspects as well, but more on that later.

Have a lovely, refreshing weekend, everyone! ♥ Thank you for being awesome.

Blog ya later!

xoxo

  13. I love sea animal shows. :) The dolphin ones are especially fun because those creatures are so SMART. And adorable! These are some great shots. I know what you mean about the 250+ photos required. I need to take that many of myself until there is a usable shot I feel comfortable showing others. Ha!

    Love your outfit too. Very summery and caj. xoxo
