bright and then some darker

Bought this hat almost a month ago, but this was the first time I wore it. I was actually about to return it to the store, but when I showed it to my friends they talked me into keeping it. What do you think? I'm not quite sure whether it's really my style.
The red button-up I found from the attic when re-organizing it. There's a bunch of stuff I found, we'll see if any of those newly found old clothes will find their way to a post-worth outfit. :)

I've been working waaaaay too long days in a recent weeks and even though blogging takes time away from much needed sleep I just want to feel I have something else than work in my life too. So just for the fun of it - a quick post of an outfit some days ago (or was it a week or so). :) New shorts btw.



I've been wandering the streets in my burgundy/raspberry colored hat and getting glances from fellow citizens. You might even say people were staring at me. :) There's three reasons why I don't mind, first of all,  I like my hat; second is I think I might have been better dressed than the ones staring at me; and third one is: I can lurk under the wide brim!
The shirt is actually a dress and I'm quite happy I rediscovered it, haven't been wearing it for a while. And the leopard scarf is DIY.

 The black metal ring (shaped as a superman-logo) caught the light and turned into shiny one.


DIY knitted & crocheted

One weekend I got the same urge I always get when the weather gets colder: to do some knitting. But because of the lack of any yarn I decided to unwind one tube scarf I made a year ago of this super soft yarn...  The scarf ended up being my favorite one until it stretched because of the "always right" knitting and it got sort of tufted. So I re-knitted it, but this time I did it really small on the diameter and "high".
As the scarf was really fast to do, the yarn's really heavy, I unwounded another ill-fated doing - one too big and thin cap. I had more of that soft peach yarn so I went with double thread and ended up doing a crocheted beanie of which I'm super proud as I didn't have any model for it, I just did it. :)
And then just totally random pic - a reflection of my necklace to the opposite wall. I just thought it was funny.


third time's the charm

This is not the luckiest outfit; I've worn (almost) this combination with slight variations about four times over the late summer&fall and this was the third time I took pics of it, but the first time the pics ended up decent... I might post some of the pics from previous session as there's a couple ok ones. And that outfit's not exactly like this one. But I'll get to that later, now some much needed sleep. :)
Btw, friends from work had several names for this variation - one thought I looked like a skipper, one thought I've escaped from 70's Paris. :)

memory lane

Ok, I know my memory isn't the best always, but now I had a new reminder (hehe) how bad it can be. I've been struggling to find time for blogging, especially for taking pics and now I realized I had taken some and forgotten these. Well, here goes. Outfit from a week or two ago, can't really remember (sigh). On a more positive note, I'm wearing my new Monki tights that are in my opinion one version of Chanel tights from last season. There was these monochrome black and white tights by Chanel, wasn't there? (sigh times two).



Golden jeans are one funny item to pair clothes with... When I got these I had punch of ideas, then they all disappeared and wearing them seemed somewhat irrational, and then back to the "yey-golden-jeans-I'll-wear-these-all-the-time". I wanted to try an outfit with these golden babies that would be more "adult"... Well, I ended up looking a bit like a stewardess... :) No-one said anything at the work though, I guess they are by now used to me wearing costume-like attires.

red leopard

We had a date night with my man and I wanted to wear something skintight! (Isn't that appropriate for a date night?) He always says he likes everything I wear, even the baggy and artsy ones, but I bet he's more into the feminine clothes... Well, it was fun for me too to wear something ultra feminine (in my standards that is) for a change. And in order show a little bit of the wild (and that artsy) side I threw in the leopard tights. I'm not sure if I ended up being more 80's than feminine with the strong colors and big shoulders though. :)

dress: HM Trend, bag: Bianco, tights: Gina Tricot



I was *a bit* excited about the launch of the Monki Online Store, so needless to say I bought a couple of items; this shirt and the over-knee socks. I also got tights, but about those in a another post. I was really happy with all the products, especially as I had tried this shirt earlier in a store, didn't buy it and it kept haunting me. :) Minor complaints go to the delivery time though, I was surprised it took a week or so. But I guess it was more about me being anxious getting the stuff. :)
