Maxi love, at last, and a tiny Lindex haul

Howdy! Do you remember my thrifted black Fancy Girls maxi skirt with two different types of exchanged golden buttons from my previous post?
So, it's one of my two maxi skirts and that's it, my entire modest collection. At least one section in my wardrobe is very modest, which, as a matter of fact, is a great success in my book, haha. Anyway, I wore this specific skirt for the very first time already on July 27 when we took a casual shopping trip to good old Tartu. And when it comes to shopping I was also highly reserved and came across only three suitable cheap things, all from trusty Lindex.

Emporio Armani sunnies | Monton earrings | Cubus top | thrifted Fancy Girls maxi skirt | Jeffrey Campbell Bad Alice flats | Hello Kitty watch.

For one thing I finally discovered a pretty much perfect statement necklace. When I saw it I immediately knew this was the right one for me and moreover it was the last one available there with such a wonderful price (€17.95 5.39!!). Secondly I attacked their children's department and this was a great smashing success as well. In other words I got myself brand-new (obviously, haha) minty-peachy bikini for absolutely ridiculous €2.69 8.95 and a fantastic tiger print crop top (€14.95 4.49) that is just perfect for a girl born in the year of the tiger and proudly wearing a tiger tattoo. Are there any "tigers" among my readers too and do you have a special "thing" with your animal sign? Oh and if you don't even know your animal sign yet check it out through this site. By the way, I sported the tiger top together with my statement necklace the weekend before last when I and my fiancé spent a lovely summer Saturday in Viljandi. But this is already another post's story with new photos.


Today's topic, our July 27 ended at my parents' place with a small barbecue party. I didn't take too many photos there but you can still see something, for example my fresh yellow (and at the same time my only pair of) flip-flops from Guess brought to me by my mom on the very same day. Besides, Elvis and Jenny (my parents' doggie) also joyfully greet you :)


Anyway, less than two more weeks left and my vacation is finally here (gosh how desperate I must sound but I just can't help myself any more, it's so close!). Oh and if all goes well then I can soon tell you about a delightful collaboration offer I got a few days ago. Exciting exciting! But for the time being enjoy my photos and definitely let me know what you think!

  5. There are so many sweet pups in this post! I must admit, they are the first thing I noticed :) The second was your lovely bikini and statement necklace. I always admire your sale shopping skills, you seem to find such great deals and always on pieces that are unexpected; I guess maybe that's the key, maybe if I didn't wear so much black I'd do better in sales ;)
    xox,

  6. veits desperate kõlad tõepoolest :D ma loodan siis, et ilm vähemalt alt ei vea ja päikest ka on ikka! :) muidu oleks nukker... ilus statement necklace ka! mul vist polegi ühtegi, sest ma lihtsalt pole suurem asi kaelaasjanduste kandja, kui need just pikad pole. samas aga on statement-kaelaketid päris kenad, kui on hästi kombineeritud, nii et.. võib vist öelda, et ma pole lihtsalt seda "enda oma" veel leidnud ilmselt.

    1. no ma igatahes ei põe, et kõlan, sest just nii ma tunnen viimasel ajal :D ja kui nüüd päris aus olla, siis ilma pärast ma ka ei põe, peaasi, et vaid puhata saaks veel enne lõputut talve! kui sajab, siis ongi suurem lootus garderoob LÕPUKS korda saada :D
      aga mul on ka suurem osa kaelaehteid kuskilt hallist minevikust pärit ja kõike muud kui statement-isendid. peabki hõrendama neid ridasid ja vaid parimad alles jätma, sest mis ma ikka säilitan neid, mida niikuinii ei kanna :)

    I love maxi skirts, and your is really cool! What I most loved was the necklace and the earrings! I love butterflies! The pictures are so beautiful and you always look happy and gorgeous! Wish I could go to your lovely country once - the landscape looks so beautiful!
    The dogs are soooo sweet! All of them! I love dogs, but I never had one :( But one of my brothers has two!
    Thank you so much for your get well wishes! I am now much better and reading my favorite blogs again, and also posting "my" quotes! You are really so sweet! Your comments mean a lot to me! As I am a vegetarian who doesn't really eat vegetables :) and so no protein, the bad impact on my health is huge. I have to change my habits, but it's so difficult...! denisesplanet com

  9. Oh my gosh. You're just the queen of bargain shopping! I'm so super impressed by all your steals--that statement necklace is such a gorgeous shade of purple and that tiger crop top is perfect! And that bikini's color combo is so pretty!

    I was excited when I saw your outfit--I remember that top from a haul post you did! It was my favorite! And you honestly have the cutest dog photos--those puppies are precious! Don't worry about sounding deperate--I don't think you do! And we all really need breaks every once in awhile. Can't wait to hear about it!

    Thank you for your last sweet comment--it means so much to know that people are touched by my posts. You are too lovely!

  21. That maxi skirt is so pretty! I love the buttons on it and how you paired it with such a cool printed top. You are so daring with your outfits! And wow that tiger top, soo awesome. I was actually born in the year of the mouse but my brother was born in the year of the tiger! The small barbeque party sounds like fun, haha I love barbeques. There's always such great summer food. And woohoo it's almost vacation time for you.

  26. maiken, adore your blue blouse and those butterfly earrings. i bet they look lovely with your eyes. i enjoy your outside summer photos. i feel like i was invited to the BBQ. ;) maxi skirts are wonderful. i'm pretty sure my chinese zodiac is a tiger. although, i've been identifying with bears most of my life because of teddi and teddy bears.
