Black and Orange

Greetings! On the 22nd of September we wrapped up Elvis and drove to Tartu where we conjointly stayed overnight.
Besides barbecuing the sunny Saturday produced us some pitch black curtain rods and fair curtains. Those curtain rods go well with the dark, partially flame shaped, partially devil shaped fireplace element and the bright curtains match nicely with a white wall. Those curtains, by the way, contain a little touch of brown and the white wall includes some brick shaped tiles. But let's not rush, the due date for our grand dining and living room is still peacefully situated in December.


coat - thrifted (made in England); shirt - Holly & Whyte by Lindex; leggings - Guess; boots - DETOX; handbag - thrifted; earrings - Seppälä; necklace - unknown; sunnies - Emporio Armani.

Therefore I'm going to share some different, even slightly insignificant news with you: in the fullness of time I came across an adorable mint blouse in a reuse center called Sõbralt Sõbrale. My button up blouse still had the label on and it was originally from Quelle online catalogue. I paid nominal 1.80 euros and was utterly pleased. When it comes to the lovely mint it's better late than never, right? What kind of relationship do you have with mint clothing/accessories?


Anyway, I also grabbed two cheap nail polishes from Seppälä: one is yellow Golden Rose Graffiti nail art varnish (2,00) and the other is glitter bluish Miss Selene varnish (0,50). Currently I'm even planning on doing a pedicure using both colours. I'll share photos with you if I succeed and of course if I like the outcome. Unfortunately I'm quite lazy when it comes to decent pedicure but I'll try my best!


For the time being I hope you like my photos from last Saturday and I also own quite large quantities from last Sunday: outfit photos and nature snaps. However, those you're going to see in my next post, so beware!

    1. my manicurist did my nails but I gave instructions of course :P and yes, I am engaged. I haven't written about it but it's not a secret actually :)
      oh and about decorating our home.. decorating is pretty much a piece of cake but reparation is sometimes quite tough and you can't decorate before you have renovated! ;)

  4. Orange is a great color for you! And OMG I gasped when I saw that mint top! It actually looks very similar to a mint vintage top that I purchased a few months back!!! We have similar taste in vintage items I think...except that you always get the better deals! haha!!

  5. mul ei ole vist eriti tugevat suhet üleüldse pastelsete toonidega. või eriti mündiga. mulle meeldib teiste seljas, aga ma ise leian, et blondidel ei ole see värv kuidagi nii ilus + siis veel põhjamaiselt hele nahk ka. noh, igaühele ei sobi lihtsalt mu meelest. ehk ma olen poes ikka vaadanud ja imetlenud ja teiste seljas ka, aga enda seljas on siiani kuidagi võõraks jäänud... et ei ole nagu päris minu värv. aga aega on, ehk siiski leian ühel päeval, et oi, mulle ka täitsa sobib jess :) loodan küll, sest nii ilus toon on ju!

    1. minu meelest on värvide puhul asi paljuski mõtlemises kinni. võtame näiteks punase: ma olin nii kindel, et see ei sobi mulle ja mul pole mõtet midagi punast endale selga ajadagi. sama oli oranžiga ja kollasega. neid näiteid on tegelikult veelgi. aga kui teised ümberringi ikka vastupidist väidavad, siis tasub ju ära proovida, sest kaotada pole midagi :) mul on juba mõned mõtted ka olemas, kuidas seda mündirohelist pluusi kanda :P

  7. You look wonderful in that outfit, your orange blouse is so fun! I don't think I own anything mint, it doesn't go well with my skin tone, so it's a trend I'm skipping, but your blouse is very pretty and i'm sure you'll look wonderful in it!

  8. There's that beautiful thrifted coat again! Hmmm....hopefully you will show pictures of your place later on. This devilish fireplace screen is intriguing me!
    I love mint green. You know, I don't think I really own anything mint though. Great find though! :) Amanda

  21. I love mint clothing, even though I don't have that much of it - only one vintage dress and then a sweater in dark mint. Do you only like light mint or maybe also dark mint color?
    Thank you for your comment on my blog, I agree that the flowers and sushi were very romantic, I'm lucky! Wow your engagement ring surprise sounds perfect, how romantic! Lucky you! Congratulations! And the ring looks beautiful in these photos!

    1. thank you, Elisabeth! :)
      now, when it comes to dark mint I'm not absolutely sure but I THINK I have at least one dark mint cardi. if it is proper dark mint.. even if it isn't I suppose I have nothing against dark mint anyway. oh and I would love to see your vintage mint dress for sure!

  53. Oh, that orange blouse is gorgeous! I want one just like it, in every color. I adore the sleeves, and the longer back is perfect. I love that you did orange and black without it looking like a Halloween costume. You're a genius.

    May the force be with you.
