29.2.12

A beautiful sunset in February

Time has ticked away incredibly fast (while keeping our home in order, visiting my manicurist at last over two long months, planning my holidays for 2012, attending a professional workshop in Tartu, celebrating Shrove Tuesday events with my colleagues, doing some planting work etc. etc.) and I have had no proper opportunities to tell you about my recent shopping (or actually any other) news. So, it has been all about accessories and thrifting (and several new beauty products too, mainly from Oriflame...) when it comes to shopping.

When I mention accessories I mean earrings, leggings, socks, tights etc. The end of the sales has offered me several pleasantly cheap necessary goodies (some you'll see in this post, some later) which I don't feel like purchasing while the prices are whole.
And when I'm talking about thrifting there are two different main sections: thrifting in my hometown and free thrifting. The last time I was thrift shopping in my hometown I ended up with even five great items (four of those cost 1.- euro each and my most incredible find cost 6,50.- euros but it was brand-new!). I forgot to mention E. bought me a pair of Esprit jeans for 3,50.- euros from Tartu and that pair is so perfect for the (hopefully) soon arriving spring.


I think I'm not going to show all my newcomers right now since it simply would be too much at once but for an example you can see the knitted jacket I thrifted from my hometown for 1.- euro. It's utterly warm and cushy, so ideal for the cold Estonian winter.

My photos were taken near Lähte on the 18th of February when I and E. took a quick trip to Tartu because I was searching for a new pair of winter boots and hoped for the best to find that mystical pair. Reality looked slightly different and I discovered something called "my dream boots" which obviously were not proper winter boots but oh well, I couldn't help myself... However, you're going to see the new booties later since I have some additional outfit photos taken together with those cuties.
So, right now I hope you like the photos I've chosen to show you this time, and as always, be sure to let me know what you think because I love hearing from you! :)


I was wearing: button up blouse - Woolworths /thrifted/; knitted jacket - /thrifted/; leggings - Amisu; boots - Pertti Palmroth; earrings - Monton; watch - Rolex /thrifted/.


ps. I haven't started answering your questions yet, so you still have the last chance to post those right here in the comments if you have any. I'll give my best to start answering as soon as possible.

  1. great photos as always, the sunset background with the snow is so beautiful! Yes I like your buys. The knitted jacket is fabulous... only 1 euro? Wow..you definitely scored! I like the color and texture. And that shirt is pretty too, I like the print. The whole look is chic especially with the tights and boots. The thrifted Rolex watch is lovely! I like your outdoor shots, always so good.

  14. It's true there are some things that it's great to buy on sales because on a normal time I don't feel like spending money on it either :)

  16. The sunset is really gorgeous in your country! I don't think I ever pay attention to it during the winter months because it gets so dark so soon. BUT..we are close to daylight savings time so I am glad to have longer days. ESPRIT!?!? We don't see that often in the US anymore, but I do love that brand!

    I would love to know what cities have you visited in Europe?
