Orange Autumn

Hello, guys!
Autumn formally starts today, on the 22nd of September but practically it has been camping here in Estonia already for a long time.

On the 14th of September, as soon as my workday was over, I and E. drove to Tartu. We officially launched the sofa hunt on that day and I can already sense how difficult the task will eventually be. My favourites are rather fancy (one even held a few slightly glossy snakeskin details) but he prefers the classical black leather for instance. We have one thing in common though: both of us are obliged to take a decision ultimately and we have nowhere to hide. Any helping suggestions or tips?


By the way, since scouting around for a new and perfect corner sofa was surprisingly tiring, I refreshed myself with the help of some shopping. I wholeheartedly favoured orange and purchased a delightful orange shirt (32,95.- eur 16,45.- eur) from Lindex. It's asymmetrical and vivid, therefore flawless in my eyes and I didn't even try it on before buying.

Moving on with orange, there was a -20% customer event at The Body Shop and for 8.- euros I got three products: the Special Edition Vineyard Peach shower gel (I adore that scent and peaches overall), an (surprise-surprise!) orange bath lily and a 50 ml Olive body butter which I haven't tried yet but have always wanted to. So now I have the opportunity. After all it was a free gift (and the subtle scent is divine again) so yay!


top - thrifted Fransa; pants - thrifted Lab Industries; belt - thrifted; coat - thrifted (made in England); shoes - Bullboxer; socks - H&M; earrings - New Yorker; sunnies - Emporio Armani.


On a different note, I found my brown Reserved sequin skirt from a random shop in Rakvere on the 15th of September. The price was ridiculous 2.- euros even though sequin skirts are highly IN nowadays. I believe I would wear that skirt together with my fresh orange cutesy for example but we'll see.


Anyhow, we had a quite fascinating evening filled with sofas, discussions, orange and McDonald's after a very long time. It was great since I needed diversity anyway. By the by, on Thursday I made reservations in medical spa hotel Tervis and a short relaxation in Pärnu is now ahead of us in October. And I still want to discover Valmiera in Latvia! But enough of that, today I hope you like the photos and the obvious autumnal sense. I love reading your thoughts, guys!

  1. Wow nice tattoos! I didn't know that you had some! Have you presented them in some post already? I would like to see them more clearly!
    I have two myself so I'm interested in tattoos!
    Love the orange shirt as well!
    Concerning the sofa, you can see what kind of sofa we have in my post here http://dragonflyelisabeth.blogspot.fi/2012/05/hope-is-knowing-that-people-like-kites.html. It's a corner ottoman couch, that can be made into a guest bed and in the ottoman part one can store interior cushions.
    Thank you so much for your support on my blog!

  7. Can't wait to see that outfit combination!
    As for question. I chose the wrong word. I
    meant your background but instead I said lay-out.

    Happy Autumn :)

  8. pildist on küll raske aru saada, aga su uus oranž pluus meenutab veidikene üht oranži pluusi, mille ma paar kuud tagasi muretsesin. lemmiklemmiklemmik mul. mul on ta siidist ja siuke õhulisem vist, aga tegumood tundub sarnane olevat. vot äratundmisrõõmu :)

    1. tegelikult lõikasin meelega need pildid tükkideks, muidu pole pärast üldse põnev enam :P aga see pluus on küll õhuline (eest ühe pisikese nööbiga), jah, kuid siidist mitte. puhas siid olnuks ilmselt tunduvalt kallim. ja kas Lindex üldse sellist (st 100% siid) müüb, seda ma muidugi ei tea.. aga!
      mul on olemas üks outfit selle pluusiga, nii-et kui see kunagi blogisse jõuab, on ilmselt kohe selge, kas oleme siis ühtekad või ei :D

  9. Great pictures and I love your shoes! I am no help but I hope you make a decision on a sofa soon! I love the location of your shoot too--nice little lane lined with trees!

  10. Wow- you always find the best deals!!!! I can't believe the bargain you got on your skirt! I got a iridescent sequin one when I on my vacation as well-but definitely not for the deal you did! As far as a sofa, I would go for something neutral, but that makes you both happy. Whenever I look at furniture, I always want super fun fancy decorated things, but then I realize that the may not go well with other decorations in my home! I'm sure you'll make it work though!! :) And lastly, to answer you question about countries, I've been to 15 now! :) I do travel a lot! :)

  11. Is your blazer lace? It's so dramatic, it's perfect! The yellow socks added a different story to the entire outfit but all in all, I say it was a risk well taken :)

  12. Great post, Maiken. I'm so jealous of your gorgeous thrifted jacket! Also, love how you mixed in your bright neon sox into the outfit. Makes it fun and unexpected.

    WHAT!? A couch that has some snakeskin print in places? Did you get pictures? Sounds divine! Well this is super lame....but I ended up buying kinda of an expensive couch because I wanted it to last for a long time and really like the shape of it. So, I got it in a neutral color so it will go with anything I buy in the future. I change up the look of it with different colored pillows and throws. I know, I know....kinda boring! ;) Amanda

  14. Oh God, we had to buy a decent sofa for our apartment last year and it was one of the most tiring and awful tasks ever! When we finally managed to find that PERFECT one, we developed an instant HATE for furniture stores :D
    The black and white photos are so magical! ^^

  17. I love your thrifted top! It's darling! Couch shopping can be so hard, I can absolutely sympathize. It's very difficult to agree on one, and they're so expensive! We had to save up for quite a while before we bought ours! Good luck! Can't wait to see you in that orange top!

  42. And concerning your comment on my blog, we thought that if one picks a light sofa, one always have to stay extra careful with not making the sofa dirty, so that's why we chose a dark one, and we haven't regretted the choice yet!
    Yes, a tattoo post would be great!

  49. I like the print on the top and your photos are always pleasant to look at. I wish we had autumn here it seems like a nice and appropriate season to wear comfy clothes, drink hot chocolates and cuddle :p

    ReplyDelete
  50. Whoa, that's a lot of orange. I like it! Great purchases. I can't wait to see you rocking that orange blouse. As for sofa hunting, I think a compromise is the best way to go. You guys can always go for a classic black leather sofa and you can purchase a fancy throw for it. :)

    Lots of love, B
