Nobody gets justice. People only get good luck or bad luck - Orson Welles

This time I'm going to tell you about three separate thematics from last weekend in a nutshell and I'll start with the 20th of April. First and foremost I did some thrifting in my hometown and purchased a brand-new blazer from xoxo for 3,50.- euros, also a lightly striped sweater from GAP for E. Usually men's clothes remind me of rags when I'm at a thrift store but it was 2,50.- euros and looked unbelievably decent.

Anyway, after my thrifting round I and E. got the opportunity to visit the biggest and renowned agricultural exhibition in the Baltic States. It was called Maamess and it took place in Tartu already for the 20th time. I was tickled pink because I love animals and there were quite many of them. For an example I completely fell in love with the most adorable pink little piglets and wanted to take them home with us. Too bad I couldn't actually do it... By the way, all the photos of the sweet animals were taken with E.'s cell phone because I didn't have my own camera with me.


Oh, Friday the 20th was also the day when I got my sequent injury. To be more specific this time I hit my foot and damaged the teeniest of my toes which changed colour, became purplish and I started to limp.. which I'm slightly doing even today, so no heels for me until it recovers. But I do have an outfit ready for you and it originates from the 21st of April when I and E. visited a recycling market in Põltsamaa with my grandparents. The market was quite nominal but I was a successful thrifter anyway and managed to find a beautiful floral blazer from KappAhl and a light pink top from New Look. Both items were only 2.- euros and they make a perfect match together, probably coming to Prague with me as well. And of course I'm utterly curious to know what is your best thrifted find so far?

Anyhow, now I wrote about thrifting, agricultural exhibition and my latest injury as well but I do still recommend you to read this article. I'm one of the five guest bloggers who shared their blogging tips with Hayley from Hailes Hearts Fashion.
And of course I hope you like the photos even though they're rather gloomy again. I actually have lots of proper springlike photos waiting for being shared with you, guys, so definitely stay tuned!


I was wearing: knitwear - Hagenfeldt /thrifted/; blazer - Number One by KAPPAHL /thrifted/; pants - Fornarina; sneakers - Bullboxer; necklace - from my high school graduation day; purple+black earrings - Lindex.

  5. maiken you look adorable! your pigtails, your fantastic nails, the colors of your bright fun outfit. sounds like you found some great thrifting things, & those animals, too cute. sorry about your toe, though. i hope it isn't too serious. i imagine it's really painful. :(

  8. Nii kui Maamess tuli lisandus hobusesõnniku aroomile veel paljude-paljude loomade kakihaisu - Maaülikoolis oli ülimalt meeldiv ühest majast teise kõndida, täpselt selline tunne nagu oleks maale sattunud (muig). Ise kahjuks muidugi kohale ei jõudnud aga fotoreportaaže on piisavalt, nii et väga kurb mu meel ka pole :D

    1. ausalt öeldes ei tundnud mina seal mitte mingit häirivat "aroomi", aga võib-olla oli asi minus, st et olen harjunud, kuna töötan niikuinii reoveepuhastis ja mu vanavanematel on ka maal loomad. tundsin ainult vaimustust ja nunnumeeter oli täiesti laes :P

    1. jah, kui see nii suur poleks (samas loogiline, meeste oma ju), siis see mu elukaaslaseni polekski jõudnud ilmselt, aga no mis seal ikka, las ta saab ka midagi :D kujutan ette, palju selline tavalises poes maksaks.. kindlasti jääks ostmata.

      I have a manicurist and I visit her after every two months, so I actually wear the same manicure for two months. I own only 3 colourful nailpolishes at home and those are for my toenails.
