Happy August! Honestly, I can't believe the last month of summer 2013 has already arrived! But at the same time August's sudden entry means my second vacation will be here in just about 3 (hopefully quick but effective) weeks, yay! But enough of that. Today's post is more than blurred, it's about a rather old outfit, a blossoming cactus, blazing summer weekends, some thrifted, non-thrifted and DIY clothes... and another, more recent outfit. So, let's better get started!
In the first place you can see my simple outfit from July 14, conjointly something I wear pretty much every day to work, i.e. a simple duet of a dress and a comfy pair of pumps or flats. When it comes to the photos that cute furry lady next to me is my grandparents' St. Bernard Laura, by the way. She is one of the sweetest, warm-heartedest doggies I've ever met, and a poseur too, apparently. Oh and that concrete H&M dress (€
29.95 10) came from Finland together with my parents and the light pink H&M sweater with a bright pink splash on it (€ 14.95 7; no. 1 in my "new in" collage below).
H&M dress | Emporio Armani sunnies | KayleighJean bracelets | Miss Sixty pumps.
The other items from my collage are following: no. 2 - thrifted floral velvety skirt for autumn (€0); no. 3 - thrifted Cheap Monday tank top (€1); no. 4 - thrifted Fancy Girls maxi skirt with exchanged buttons (€0); no. 5 - DIY maxi skirt made from a thrifted fabric (€0). And when it comes to item no. 4 you will see me wearing it for the first time already in my next post (check out the sneak peek photo of that outfit below my "new in" collage!) so be on your guard ;)
Anyhow, the rest of my various photos were taken at our home on July 26 and 28. One of my three cactuses blossomed and that's always a pretty sight worth capturing. And last weekend I made a quick and yummy pizza with Gouda cheese, cheese sausage, tomato, onion and basil. As you can see Elvis was also keeping his sharp eye on the pizza and beer. So I hope you liked this prompt post because I really wanted to share those slightly nostalgic photographs from bygone July. By the way, what are your plans for the last month of summer? Take care and let me know your thoughts :)
