Gloomy Monday

Last Monday, on the 23rd of July E. had to overlook one of his current projects in Tartu. The weather was gloomy and I immediately saw an opportunity to browse some shops. I'm impossible, I know. But luckily my catch was modest and I only purchased an asymmetrical belted skirt from Tally Weijl (19,95.- euros 6,99.- euros), a cute bow belt from Cropp (6,95.- euros 2,99.- euros) and a golden glittery nail polish from Wild & Mild (1,65.- euros).

Oh, additionally I bought an antique chest for storing my jewellery and from the same antique store also a sofa table which will furnish our soon-to-be dining and living room. By the way, E. plans to complete the grand reparation for Christmas at the latest, so our next Christmas tree should already stand there proudly. And he has also built the fireplace by himself which means we will definitely have the sweetest Christmas ever!


Anyway, it was generally an interesting day because I ran into two people I had not seen for long years and both of them recognized me incredibly quickly. Yeah, I remembered them as well but only after standing there and waiting for my long wires to start forwarding the necessary signals to my brain. So typical!

Last but not least, I and E. ate at Cookbook which is a rather small cafeteria. My meal (chicken fillet+fried potatoes+cucumber+tomato) looks tiny because it was chosen from the children's menu but honestly I was completely full after finishing it. And I'm pretty sure we will visit Cookbook again in the future.


I was wearing: dress - Seppälä Woman; blazer - Dorothy Perkins /thrifted/; waist-belt - /thrifted/; wedges - odeon; earrings - unknown.

So, do enjoy the gloomy photos and once again be sure to let me know what you think. Oh, happy Wednesday, my dear readers!

  48. It looks like you had a very successful shopping day in Tartu! The antique chest is just beautiful :) And your tiny meal from Cookbook is too cute; I often wish I was still allowed to order from the kids menu, the portion sizes are just right! Instead, I often order from the appetizer menu :)

    I also have to say, I just love what you're wearing in these photos, even if the weather wasn't perfect (which it so rarely is, sadly.) The floral dress and green wedges are just the perfect match!

    xox,
    Cee
