On Saturday M and I went to the annual grape harvest/ wine tasting celebration that takes place near where we live. Luckily the weather was beautiful and it was really nice just sitting at the vineyard drinking burcak (new half-fermented wine also called scrumpy). I picked my outfit for maximum comfort. I think I looked like a teenager. Definitely not my usual outfit but I quite liked it.
This weekend kicked off to a good start with Friday night: M and I went to the annual Prague whisky convention (Whisky Live Prague) and as I was dying to wear my new dress (the one I mentioned in my last post), I wore it to the event. The dress is from Asos and I love love love the texture of the skirt part. I kept the rest of my outfit relatively simple, going all black with some gold detailing (H&M studded belt, Asos left earrings), and as for my shoes…
Just a quick post today, I’m off to work and in a rush but here’s what’s going on in my life right this minute:
I have been a huge Caitlin Moran fan ever since I read her lovely book How to be a Woman. I’ve had her next book Moranthology on my reading list for quite a long time but never could get to it, finally, as now I am in between exams, I have some time to read whatever I want, I’ve started reading it. I also have her most recent book How to Build a Girl on my book shelves and it’s in my reading queue.
New PURCHASESI have been lusting after a pair of Swedish Hasbeens for AGES and I finally bought my first pair yesterday. Yeah, I know, obviously I buy a pair of summer clogs right after summer ends, ugh! But anyways, they will wait for me until next year. I really want to get a pair that is all red next time but these are great for the beginning of my Hasbeens clog collection 🙂 Oh and I also bought/swapped a new dress that I’ll hopefully wear either this evening for this weekend so you’ll be seeing it soon. It’s a LBD from Asos and what makes it really special is the texture of the skirt part of the dress, but more about the dress once I wear it.
On Saturday M and I went to visit the Prague Zoo. I got to see some of my favorite animals and wear a cute outfit, so I was a happy girl. I went in comfy Melissa flats because a)there was a lot of walking involved and b)it was threatening to rain (and it did in fact rain while we were having lunch). The shoes in question are Melissa Doris Spike t-bar flats in red. I really like these shoes. I’m a sucker for red shoes in general but I also absolutely love studs on shoes, so of course I love these shoes. Plus they are also really comfy!
Friday night M and I went to have drinks and then to a club with some friends. I chose my outfit accordingly – I wanted to be comfortable enough to be able to dance and I also needed to be wearing flats as I knew we would be going from place to place and I didn’t want to be staggering on my heels in Prague city center aka cobble stone land. My absolute favorite thing about this outfit are the shoes:
So, leopard print flats are one of my favorite types of flat shoes. I think they can take an outfit further than regular black flats, which I otherwise would constantly be wearing. The shoes pictured above are one of my favorites. They are by Blink and I love the cutesy bow and mouse face on the toe of the shoes – just adorable. You’ve seen them on this blog before:
