My Pins

I just love the sight of them! 
Sooo pretty, 
they make me extremely happy :)

Plus, my new phone purse. Beyond gorgeous, I tell you. I love clasp purses and I was completely over the moon when I stumbled upon this one. I mean, musical notes? Piano keys at the back (sorry, no picture)? Hand-made in Britain? What's not to love?

Phone purse: Lazy Doll
Corsage: Lucy Levenson
Sparrow pin: Dear Emma

Monochrome (Almost)

Interesting colour scheme? It is rather, isn't it? I've nearly forgotten about this cardi, tablecloth cardi I call it. I've had it for years. It's quite a special number, can't be worn with anything. Fine with my cord jodhpurs, though.

Outfit details:

- leather boots - Alpina (local brand)
- jodhpurs - Joules
- leather belt - Benetton
- Breton top - Boden
- cardi - Benetton
- beret - Seeberger
- bicycle pendant - Etsy
- corsage - art boutique in the capital, self-made leaf :)

A very matchy-matchy outfit :)

Three Things (And Five Photos)

1* As Lucy would put it - I'm ridiculously happy about my new coat hooks! I've been wanting something like these forever - now I've found them I'm over the moon! Totally and completely!

I got two sets just to make sure there's enough colourful cheerful prettiness in my home :)

2* The work is finished! Done! Over with!

And I like the result. The above photo was made because I loved the colours. The bottom one shows where this crochet burst of spring actually lives :)

3* My little girl's new top! Isn't it gorgeous? The cotton top was a hand-me-down from her best friend and the crochet doily was made by her godmother. Ideal combination, wouldn't you say?

She absolutely adores it :)

I like this Boden dress very much. It's so easy to style! It was last year's purchase and worth every penny. I wore it constantly last winter, it's pure wool and really warm, yet not too bulky. It's dark grey, which I prefer to black. Any splash of colour can be added as well, so no problem with my accessory overload :) I actually went easy on accessories this time ...

I went out in my good old brown tweedie coat and my favourite woolly scarf. No fuss!

Outfit details:

- leather boots - Alpina (local brand)
- tights - home closet  :)
- coat - local clothes store
- scarf - Robert Mackie of Scotland
- owl brooch - I made it
- beret - Seeberger
- dress / tunic - Boden
- silk scarf - Joules
- crochet bead bracelet - Christmas art market in the capital
- angel pendant - birthday gift

I love my Little Grey Dress :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

I looove this outfit! I really do. 
Can I say it again, please?
I love this outfit.

It's got everything I like in an outfit: tweed, jeans, warm wool, just the right amount of lovely accessories, leather boots ...

... stripes, gorgeous colours, quirky buttons ...

And, it's really warm and comfortable. 
Just what the weather calls for at this time of year.

Outfit details:

- boots - Alpina (local brand, fabulous footwear, honestly!)
- skinny jeans - Boden
- leather belt - Benetton
- Breton top - Boden
- tweed jacket - Joules
- scarf - lovely boutique in the capital
- hare pin - Joules
- sparrow brooch - Dear Emma
- coat - Corazon
- belt - Jack Jones
- cap & mittens - Kokoska (local brand, no longer available, I'm afraid)

The weather? Rather unpleasant, I'd say, but much more bearable than last winter. So far ...

Free As A Bird (Or Two) ...

I haven't worn this skirt for a while now. Upon putting it on, I realised it was definitely one of my all-time favourite items. So you may see a bit more of it again as time goes by!

I'm sorry to have chopped off my feet in this picture but the soles of my boots were soaking wet and I just couldn't have been bothered to put on a decent pair of shoes. Hence the funny proportions :)

I liked this outfit so much I wore it twice in one week. To a music school concert with my boy and to church last Sunday. A winner! A different coat was worn at each occasion, the quilted brown one for the concert (which included a two-hour bus journey each way) and the wollen camel one to church.

The brown hat is another thing from my closet which hasn't been out for a while. Catching up now ...

Outfit details:

- hat - Seeberger
- corsage - crafty boutique in the capital, I made the leaf
- jumper - Boden
- silk scarf - Barbour
- skirt - Boden
- tights - home closet
- angel earrings - birthday present from years ago

The last two pictures? 
Angels & Blossoms :)
