So, on the 23rd of June I and E. attended Avinurme Barrel Fair with my grandparents but since there was this typical (i.e. showery) Estonian summer weather that day, we were not too ravished about the handicrafts, wood products and garden goods. Therefore we rushed through the fair and drove to Rakvere where we had lunch at Brezza Café and I filled myself with pizza Fattoria (chicken+paprika+pineapple+tomato+mozzarella) which is my utmost favourite. And I should definitely make my own Fattoria presently!
I was wearing: tunic - KappAhl /thrifted/; waist-belt - Sisters Point; bermuda pants - Pimkie /thrifted/; wedges - Pearlz; bag - Lacoste; pendant - Club Monaco.
Anyhow, we did some pre-Midsummer Eve shopping and I purchased three things: a pair of denim ballerinas (15,95.- EUR), a truly wonderful floral print dress (
And finally, our Midsummer Eve ("Jaaniõhtu" in Estonian)!
Estonians celebrate "Jaaniõhtu" on the eve of the Summer Solstice (June 23) with bonfires, and this is exactly what we did. I, E., my parents and grandparents got together at my grandparents' place where we ate (a lot) and naturally built a grand bonfire.
Since 1934, June 23 is also national Victory Day of Estonia and both 23rd and 24th are holidays and flag days.
