You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming - Pablo Neruda

It's Saturday morning. I wake up and shortly discover my phone/alarm clock is not next to me on the nightstand. Then I quickly jump out of the bed and rush to another room in order to find out the time. It is 7.20 or even a little more and I'm slightly panicked because normally I wake up at 7.03. I already hurry downstairs and suddenly realize it's SATURDAY and I don't work on Saturdays. I breathe a lot easier and go back to bed to wake up normally after a while. Oh well, I guess these are the "perks" of working like a madwoman and resting way too little (my last vacation was in October 2012 and the next one will hopefully arrive merely 8 months later, in June 2013. Exciting!).

Anyway, I actually promised to demonstrate my first proper (and colourful!) this year's spring outfit from April 13 when I and E. took another trip to Rakvere. Once again we were after several home related goodies and found just about everything from a dark brown wicker basket for the hallway to snow white paint for the balcony. Of course I additionally took advantage of some sales and purchased myself very affordable jewellery from CROPP and New Yorker. So, the crosses set (3.95 1.95 euros) is from New Yorker and the studded bracelet (5.99 2.99 euros) and earrings 3 pack (4.49 2.99 euros) from CROPP's Chillin accessories collection. By the way, this means entirely five fresh pairs of earrings for one hopeless earring addict.


So, in addition to all those deep baubles and my not so deep Barbie pink socks you can also see a nice gift from TopModa. It's an Occhiblu Dog cosmetic bag that perfectly matches my shopping bag with the same name. You can see my photo and the reference to my Occhiblu Dog blog post via their Facebook page here. Besides, my Estonian readers have got a wonderful chance to win the exact same thing already on May 1 so take the bull by the horns, ladies, and check out their Facebook page right away!


I'm going to finish up with a bunch of sunny spring photos mostly from April 21 when I photographed my grandparents' new billy goats for the first time. Those guys are hilarious and I love their crazy cool eyes! Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the photos and leave me your lovely notes because I always love reading those and you, who always speak up, are obviously my favourites ;)


ps. I will give my very best to post my freshest Dermosil and Oriflame beauty purchases next time so be on your guard. But for the time being enjoy spring and start planning your holidays! ;)

  4. ära räägi tõesti - sokupoisid on nii-nii vahvad lihtsalt! ja seda hommikust närvitsemist nädalavahetusel tuleb ikka aeg-ajalt ette ja jube tüütu on küll... mul oli siuke olukord just sel pühapäeval jälle. aga sarnane needikäevõru on mu wishlistis juba sada aastat, aga ma päris igalt poolt ei julge seda jällegi osta. pärast on jälle nii, et kanda ei saa ja teen hoopiski mõne sõbranna jälle õnnelikuks, milles pole iseenesest mitte midagi halba, aga lihtsalt viimasel ajal on kuidagi nii välja kukkunud, et neid ainult õnnelikuks teengi oma ebaõnnestunud eheteostudega :D

    1. minu olukord oli sel laupäeval, mis just möödus, ja ma imestan, et tõe taipamine nii kaua aega võttis :D tavaliselt juhtub see veel enne, kui voodist välja jõuan ronida.
      aga neid käevõrusid olengi vist ainult sellistes New Yorkeri ja CROPPi sarnastes poodides näinud.. okei, mitte, et ma kuskil hõbeda- või kullapoes neid üldse otsimas oleks käinud. seega, mine sa tea ;)

      Delete
    2. ma nendesse poodidesse väga ei satu, kui just mingi väga kindel põhjus pole, aga ma nägin kõige esimesena selliseid kunagi ammu-ammu ASOSes. neid on seal muidugi siiani ja alati ka mu saved listis :D ja eBay on ka muidugi selliseid täis. ASOSes on need minu meelest hetkel isegi soodukaga tegelt.. nii et vaid kättevõtmise asi see tellimine. ASOSest ma vist julgekski kõige kindlamini tellida, sest nende ehted ei ole siiamaani mulle midagi kurja teinud :)

    3. kusjuures, ma hakkasin neid kõrvarõngaid näiteks vähemalt aasta aega tagasi otsima (mitte väga pingsalt muidugi) ja nüüd juhuslikult sundisin Eriku endaga koos CROPPi ja seal need olidki.. +käevõru ka veel ja nii heade hindadega. aga ASOS, jaa, tsekkisin ka nüüd seal ringi veidi ja ilmselgelt LIIGA SUUR valik on :D tahaks päris mitmeid asju sealt endale :D

  5. Nii ilusad püksid. Plaan endale ka kevadeks veidi värvi tuua ja sarnast tooni püksid osta. Ja need sokukesed on tõsti vahvad! Ootan juba seda kui loomaaed avab oma laste loomaaia osa ja saab sarnaseid nunnukaid paitama minna.

    1. oi, ma pole laste loomaaias juba terve igaviku käinud, aga mäletan lapsepõlve aegadest, kui tore seal oli. loomaaiad ja -pargid on üldse ühed mu lemmikkohad ja just möödunud nädalavahetusel ütlesin elukaaslasele, et võiks varsti jälle Elistverre minna :) olen vist pea igal aastal selle kohta postitanud siin blogis, aga loomapiltidest ei saa ju kunagi küllalt :P

  6. The goats are so sweet! And it was so sunny when you photographed then! I love your style, I love mixing colors - and that all makes perfect sense! Loved the pants' color, together with the orange shirt and the denim vest! I sound like a "love love love", but it's true, this outfit is so sweet! You look great!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Ah, and I forgot, isn't it great when we realize it's Saturday? I hope you have great vacations soon!

  8. Your outfit totally screams spring! You're like the ultimate deal finder. I feel like whenever I look at your blog I become envious of your most recent purchases haha. As for the last few pics, who knew goats could be so cute :)

  9. Haha it happened to me someday and it's such a good feeling to realize that there's no need to wake up and go to school :P. As for the outfit I loove those colors! I like the idea of wearing a denim blouse over a blouse, might try this someday. Also as usual gorgeous pictures, I really love the last one.

  14. That Saturday morning experience that you had is one I know all too well, Maiken! When I worked in an office, I always woke up ten minutes before my alarm and lay awake, waiting for it to ring, always slightly worried that I might have forgotten to set it even though I distinctly remembered doing so the night before. I hope your June vacation comes very quickly :) And how lovely to see that the snow is finally melting in Estonia, this spring look is simply lovely and perfectly colourful - and if it's possible, your hair is looking more beautiful than ever!
    xox,

  15. I love the orange blouse with that denim vest. You look so pretty! That's definitely happened to me before too.. I woke my husband up at 5am on a saturday to tell him to go to work. He actually was about to get in the shower and we both realize it's saturday. OOPS! :)

  21. Oh my gosh, its goats! I love goats so much, we use to have them growing up and they are just the funniest anmials. Our goat use to tag along with us when we'd go hiking up in the mountains behind us and in the winter we would put her in a little dog harness and she's pull a little sled around. She was such a character, so playful! She would curl up with the dogs at night and her and our litttle pony stallion had a great game where he'd stand next to a stump so she could get on his back and ride around on him. Oh man, I miss her so much.) Heh, that was a ramble but I do love goats, they're usually so friendly and playful, them and their games. :)

    I love seeing your outdoor photographs, the landscape looks so familiar to me with the big tall trees, all of the snow and the remote-ish looking roads. You live in such a beautiful country! And hey, at least it looks like the snow in melting, our roads are starting to look the same with the road being bare and the snow piled up on the sides.) You look so gorgeous in the bright colors, I really love this pairing of the teal jeans and your bright top.

    Hah, I keep going back to the goat pictures. Those guys are so cute and just look at those mischievous eyes!

  22. That has got to be one of the bestest feelings,when you wake up in a panic,but then realise you dont have to get up,as you dont have work!
    Im loving seeing the summer and sun edge nearer and nearer and your gorgeous colourful outift certainly brightens up the day,I love the combination of the orange and the turqoise colours,you look wonderful and the scene behind you is beautiful.
    What a treat,with all those new accessories,five new pairs of earrings,and a bargain as always!
    Your grandparents goats are so cute,how cool to own such interesting animals! I havent seen a goat in a while,but I do remember their unusual eyes,and different shaped pupils,I think.
    I hope your well and having a lovely week so far,not long until your vacation now! time will fly by.

  23. I like how you paired that bright orange blouse with your green pants and denim jacket. They go perfectly together! Make sure that you also find time to rest and relax, Maiken. Don't overwork yourself!

  32. What a lovely post, I love those boots so much, and I the photos of the goats! :) It seems we are still trying to figure out when to take out holiday, but most likely in June or July, since we're so busy. Wishing you a fun weekend. xx/Madison

  33. I love the tangerine color on you! It's one of my favorites right now.
    It would be nice to read more about your work, it sounds very hard, but I have no idea what you actually do.
    You should remember to rejoice over your free time, but of course I feel you, we have all been in those situations when we can't remember what day it is.
    Concerning your kind comment on my blog, nowadays art can be found online as well, you've never visited a museum's virtual tour? Have you been to any art museum in Helsinki?
    After having lived in Italy, I wear dresses all year round ;)

  42. hahah I do that all the time too! And then I freak out because I think i'm late:p Anyway, your outfit today is so innovative. I never would have thought that teal and orange would go together but they do! I seriously always have a tough time figuring out what to wear with orange. Oh and your necklace is also really pretty, I love the bit of blue in it:)

  48. I love the colors of what you're wearing! Clearly you're Spring-ready. I've always found goats cute, maybe because my dad has been raising goats in his farm when he's not busy with his business. And oh, happy summer dear! :)
