Feeling classical

Long time no see, my sweeties. But time really flew by especially ruthlessly after we got back from lovely Saka Manor. And conjointly I'm now in possession of more than 300 vacation photographs (including entirely six holiday outfits!) from those three delightful days. But before sharing those (probably in three separate blog posts) with you I still have something rather classical from August 24, looking forward to be published.


In other words this is the thrifted outfit I wore to Tallinn two weeks ago. E. and his father had to go and they kindly brought me with them so that I could visit Estonia's largest shopping centre Ülemiste. So, obviously I shopped a little and got myself the cutest, the softest and the cheapest pair of tangerine sandals (€34.95 4.95) from New Yorker. The same store also treated me with the top part (€12.95 2.95) of my spectra green bikini I was talking about in this blog post. Yay for me! ;)

Oh and I additionally have a serious mission to get rid of all hair elastics with the tiny metallic element that harms hair. So, fortunately I came across those metal-free bright ponies while visiting an Accessorize store. It was a surprisingly complex challenge to find those actually so simple things though.

Emporio Armani sunnies | thrifted Gerry Weber blouse | thrifted Never Mind knitwear | thrifted skirt | o.i.s sandals.

Now, coming back to vacation related facts I already must slowly get ready for Tuesday when I (E. starts on Monday) have to officially return to work. But wait, there's more to this story..
I was suddenly offered another, additional job during my holidays. It's about public procurements and I took it which means from now on my evenings and weekends are particularly dense. But impossible is nothing, right? Or at least they say so, haha.


Anyway, I hope you like those late August photographs and my almost wholly black & white & thrifted ensemble. Enjoy your September and in the same way as always, leave me your thoughts :)

  2. Your tangerine sandals look wonderful, I can almost feel how soft they are! Glad you found the hair elastics you were looking for, sometimes it is VERY difficult to find a simple necessity. And congratulations on the job offer! Does this mean you're working two jobs right now? Are you going to quit your old one?

  3. Oi need New Yorkeri papud on küll imelised, täitsa kahju kohe, et suvi juba läbi ja nendega saad ilmselt alles kevadel ringi lipata :) Aga suurepärane ost ikkagi. Palju õnne uue töö osas, tundub, et sul tuleb väga põnev aeg :)

    1. ma ei ole neid nunnusid küll veel toast väljas kandnud, aga praegune suurepärane hilissuvine ilm lubaks seda kindlasti teha. kui bikiinide jaoks on piisavalt sooja, siis on nende jaoks ka ;) ja pealegi on mul plaanis oma jalatsivarud tõsise pilguga üle vaadata ning üks korralik hunnik välja praakida müügiks-annetamiseks, et vaid minu jaoks sobivaimad alles jääks uute hooaegade tarbeks :)
      ja aitäh! natuke hirmus, aga kindlasti rohkem põnev :)

  6. I'm sure you'll be able to manage your time just fine! More money to buy more clothes ;) Love the gingham jacket! And of course, a post of yours would be incomplete without some amazing deals that I am eternally jealous of -- this time those shoes!

  9. Oi, palju õnne uue töö puhul, preili! saad siis kodust töötada?
    mm ja mis puutub nendesse patsikatesse, siis I SO feel you! neid lihtsalt ei ole võimalik leida ja ma ei taha värvilisi ka ja peenemad võiksid olla... Accessorize poodi olen vist elu jooksul samas üks-kaks korda sisse astunud miskipärast, äkki peaks uudistama igaks juhuks isegi :) voh, täna lähen, kui linna satun!

    1. ega sa juhuslikult Accessorize'i Expressions'iga segi ei aja praegu? või oled taas Tallinna mail? sest Accessorize'i ei tohiks minu teada Tartus kuskil olla, neil on Tallinnas 3 poodi. igatahes, mulle sümpatiseerib Accessorize millegipärast rohkem kui Expressions, kuigi olen ka elu jooksul mõlemas alla kümne korra käinud.
      ja aitäh ka muidugi! õnne läheb alati vaja ;) ja saan kodust töötada tõesti. õnneks. vastasel juhul poleks seda pakkumist ilmselt vastu saanud võttagi. lihtsalt nüüd saab veits kauem üleval olla öösiti, eile näiteks tsillisin rõõmsalt peaaegu kaheni :D

    2. mkm, sest ma isegi tean, et need on kaks erinevat asja. aga ma arvasin miskipärast, et see mingi suur ehete ja asjade pood, mis vist kaubamajas kuskil suht kohe body shopi kõrval on, on Accessorize, kui see Expressions ei ole :D sest need on vist megatillukesed poed alati (?). ma käisin küll täna kaupsis, aga polnu ikka meeles vaadata. tõenäoliselt on see siis hoopiski midagi muud ja Accessorize polegi Tartus jah... a äkki siis satun nädala lõpus mõnesse Tallinna omasse. Virus raudselt on see, ma eeldan

      aga sellisel juhul tere tulemast minu igapäevaellu, ainult ma lasen tavaliselt tunnike-kaks kauem. õhh, sellega tuleks midagi tõsiselt ette võtta ASAP...

    3. tean küll, mis poodi sa silmas pead, aga kahjuks see on tõesti pisikestest Accessorize'i poodidest väga kaugel (ja ma pole vist kunagi seal sees isegi käinud. lihtsalt ei tõmba millegagi). aga Virus on tõesti Accessorize täitsa olemas, nii-et saad läbi hüpata sealt.
      haha ja kui ma veel kauem üleval oleksin, saaksin võib-olla 3-4 tundi magada ja peaksin tööl käimisest päevasel ajal loobuma :D kell 24 magama minek on tegelikult selline kuldne kesktee, mis ei mõju väsitavalt kella 7 ajal ärkamise puhul.

  10. Yaaay, congrats for the new job, you kick their asses (metaphorically speaking) :D 300 vacation photos is quite the bunch, but considering I made 100 just of my fat cats, 300 seems quite a small number for vacation photos :D
    Adore the classy look. The shirt look a bit masculine and I looove it ^_^

  20. It sounds like you had a wonderful holiday, Maiken! Although I couldn't help but laugh when you wrote that you took a second job while you were away. I don't know where you'll find the time but I think it's amazing that you do :) I hope your post-holiday days with two jobs on the go haven't been too stressful. And I'm looking forward to seeing all of your vacation outfits!
