Guess by Marciano hat | silver dragonfly earrings from local department store and silver ball pendant earrings - a Christmas gift from E. | orange scarf gotten via my workplace | thrifted ICON coat | Mithio mittens | Ted Baker bag | Amisu leggings | Pertti Palmroth boots | thrifted knitted jacket.Anyway, on a completely different note I would like to introduce two of my quite recent thrift store treasures to you: a bouncy top (€2.30) with asymmetrical hemline and cute little pocket from Atmosphere and a vintage flavoured dress (€3.00) with an adorable bow in front from TU (sold only at Sainsbury's). Both are utterly springlike so I'm waiting for spring (and obviously summer) like crazy! Oh and I already have three new thrift store findings to share but for the time being I hope you enjoy the mainly sunny photos and don't forget to let me know what you think because I really love hearing from you!
One wintry day in Tallinn
Multiple ice-cold greetings from my hometown Jõgeva that is persistently keeping the cold record in Estonia. The weather station of Jõgeva measured my country's new cold record for this winter at minus 28,7 degrees Celsius in the early hours of last Saturday. Therefore I'm bringing a wintry trip story from the Saturday before last to you. And at the same time it was my very first trip of 2013.
It was a cosy train trip to Tallinn and the majority of our nearly six hours there was spent at Stockmann, my favourite shopping plaza in our capital town. As usual, we started with a lightsome breakfast and then dived in enthusiastically but believe it or not, all in all my fiancé was even more successful than I was. This proves that miracles do happen. I made only one purchase at Stockmann and it was an elegant hat from etcetera (
By the way, according to etcetera's home page the spring 2013 colours are fuchsia, tangerine, rose, poppy, bluebird, khaki, café, basil, periwinkle and black+white. This list certainly brings me joy whereas I adore most of the colours mentioned and for example I have thrifted myself something tangerine already twice this year (and one of those spunky items can be seen somewhere below).
Anyhow, since I already was on the wavelength of violet shades I also found a few suitable bargains from Seppälä: purple earrings (
€1.58), a purple/periwinkle+black lingerie set ( €3.95 €8.48 + 16.95 € €3.48) and besides an orange/tangerine+dalmatian pattern lingerie set ( 6.95 € € 9.95 €4.98 + €2.98). Altogether I saved nearly €40 that makes more than 52% from the original number (i.e. €75.65). Nice job, even though I didn't actually find what we were scouting around for in the first place, and those were decent, good-looking and warm (all at the same time of course) winter boots. Therefore yesterday the hunt continued in Tartu and ended successfully in every way but that's already a future story. 5.95 €
So, we completed our day off in Tallinn with a delicious lunch at Travel Restaurant. I enjoyed my Caesar salad with roasted chicken fillet and Parmesan cheese and my fiancé enjoyed his Estonian pork roast with fried potatoes, fried sauerkraut and mustard sauce. We ate there together for the second time and we both love the place.
