Hello! Life lately has been mostly gloomy (hence the delay and the title of this post).
So, the misery began already last week when I got a stupid cold (essentially an extreme sniffle and an annoying temperature). And since being sick was utterly unwonted and new to me it felt extra depressing! Regardless of that I continued my regular business and chore and counted on a brighter future (suffering should result with that, or what?). But instead the crappy week ended with a real bang. A negative, unnecessary bang, naturally and literally. But all right, that bang has been fortunately positively settled now.
And then striked the next one, bang, just like that! Our furnace is broken and therefore heating the house is disturbed, obviously. On a positive note our current (so called) winter is mild, we have a fireplace and a wood burning range... and an insurance, thank God! But I'm not going to lie, I still want the bad bad February to end!
Anyway, on a completely different and a lot brighter note last Saturday, February 15 was a trip day and we visited one of our regular spots, Rakvere. Below and above you can for one thing see what I wore on that thoroughly gloomy day. My red beanie and tube scarf set is a Valentine's Day gift from mom and everything else is old and/or thrifted.
Now, about (cheap) shopping. Among some necessities I got an adorable heart necklace (€1.79) from the little girls' sale section at Lindex and a cool angry tigers' tee (~€3) from a brand called Jimmy Hunger. By the way, Jimmy Hunger is actually aimed at boys aged 6-16 and my tee originates from their 2014 Spring collection. But I believe it looks great with the cute heart necklace because of the cool contrast those two individuals create.

And last but certainly not least I want to showcase my very first pair of Beverly Feldman shoes. Got them from one of my main local thrift shops for €8 and they're simply perfect ♥. Beverly is an extravagant shoe designer who designed her own pretty website and she creates all the shoes and handbags herself, located in sunny Alicante, Spain. She has dedicated more than 40 years to shoes and her daring slogan is Too much is not enough. Oh and she owns 7 poodles and 3 German shepherds! So if you love bold and happy shoes, definitely explore her vivid collection here.
I hope you guys enjoyed today's gloomy photographs and I really count on some sunnier days for the next ones because I'm already eager to present you my newest giveaway win from a beautiful Finnish brand called Design Domi! I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for that but for the time being I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on today's post. See you next time!
