Hello hello! Since May, that in my book JUST started, is actually somehow almost over, it's the ultimate time to share some of my May moments with you. Therefore all the photos below date back to May 9-14 and include a purely casual Saturday outfit and a handful of newcomers in my developing wardrobe. And of course several green snapshots from the garden because that section in my blog has been surprisingly popular. And let's be honest - I love gardening and I love sharing colourful bits and pieces from our garden with you, guys.
But first off an outfit from May 9. It was a long and weary day, spent more than 100 km away from home, thereby it had to be cosy, casual and action-friendly. It also included two pieces from today's mini haul. For one thing those DETROIT denim by Lindex jeans from Lindex's girls' section - they were a complete bargain, entirely 70% off (€
24.95 7.49) and I love their impeccable high waisted cut. And secondly come those colourful, breezy sneakers (€ 6.99 ≈4), the most comfortable out there. E got them for me from a supermarket a while ago, actually exactly after my molar was taken out.
Anyway, more about that haul. It additionally holds a pair of gorgeous coral BONBON Lingerie Flower-Power knee socks (€
5.90 4) from another supermarket and a partially furry, partially leathery leopard wallet from Mohito (€ 12.99 8.99). Oh and then there are those Claudia Bianca leather sandals I coincidentally detected while exploring one of the two best thrift shops in my tiny hometown. They were hiding in a big cardboard box between pairs of very weary footwear and for modest €3.50 those gems were mine. By the way, I previously sold entirely 17 pairs of shoes, sneakers, boots and other footgear so the situation in my shoerobe is definitely under control.
So, let's continue with the third bunch of photos, finally the green ones. On May 10 I finished our main onion bed. Yellow and red onions are also growing between the strawberries and I still have a small handful of them waiting for their new earthy nests. My box garden also includes wild garlick, chives, green onion, parsley, rucola, beetroots, Jerusalem artichoke, Brussels sprouts, mint and oregano. Cauliflowers are still pending and fighting for their fragile lives. Carrots haven't woken up yet so I covered them with shade cloth to stimulate their rise. By the way, on May 11 we harvested our first cucumber and at some time I want to show you our greenhouse too. Our cucumbers, tomatoes, paprikas, jalapeños, pattypan squash, zucchini, supermarket pumpkin, fennel, strawberry spinach and more! I hope they will all be fruitful despite our hectic weather and night frost hazard.
But for the time being enjoy today's photo flood and let me know what you think because I absolutely love hearing from all of you! Your feedback and support mean the world to me. Oh and one more good news before I go! If all goes well I will have my first holiday in 2015 after approximately 17 days. That's exactly for my birthday and Midsummer so it just has to be awesome! By all means I'll keep my fingers crossed. And see you in the next post, guys!
