Today was a rare sunny day (the rest of the week is supposed to be rainy and cold) and besides studying, we went on a nice walk with Mr. Pig, then we went to a family lunch (without Mr. Pig) and later my sister stopped by the flat and she helped me with my French. I didn’t take outfit photos studying (ha, like anyone would want to see that), but since M went with us on our piggy walk, he was kind enough to play photographer yet again. It’s lucky that it’s Melissa Shoe Week because I almost always wear these shoes when I walk Dracul!
Traditionally Spring is very rainy in Prague, we do have the once-in-a-while sunny day but mainly its the grey dull days promising rain. Usually the rain showers are short but when it rains, it pours. Not only that but it gets quite cold as well. So what to wear in Spring in Prague?
This past week has been busy – besides the usual schedule I had a photo-shoot on Wednesday (it was fun to get dolled up and get my hair curled). I then decided to keep my hair the same way, for the past few days (I just didn’t touch it and there was enough hair spray in it to last forever).
It’s on rainy days especially that I like to brighten things up and have fun with my outfits. It’s because when it’s dull and grey outside, I don’t want to add to the dullness and greyness. I also love to wear bright pink, stripes and an interesting (floral) print – not necessarily all together but hey, why not?
The outfit above was worn only to walk Mr. Pig and consists of one of my favorite swapped tops, which I often lounge in at home, a pair of crazy leggings from the Versace for H&M limited edition, the sweater is super old and is from H&M, the scarf is also H&M, I have no idea where the socks are from – actually I think I may have stolen these from M after they shrunk in the washing machine. And the fun bright rain boots are from Gate.
The photo below is of another outfit, I wore this to work and had actually just bought that umbrella because it was raining so hard and I always forget to bring an umbrella. I needed a new one anyways, as M had lost my pale pink almost beige Topshop one that I had lent him. This one is from Sixx and is more pink and more coral so I like it more. The shoes I had just swapped that day, I don’t know what brand they are but I love the colors and was happy to change into them as the rain was particularly brutal that day (and a pair of jelly shoes is always better in the rain than a pair of leather ballerina flats). Oh and the red dress is a recent purchase from Asos.
Today I bring you one of my favorite casual pairs of shoes that I own:
Melissa Ultragirl Ballet Flats in Pink
First of all I hope everyone is having a lovely holiday and if you don’t celebrate (we don’t either, we just go visit family) then at least it’s nice to have the day off, isn’t it? In honor of the Easter bunny and his bright colored friends, I wore a very thematic outfit. Actually, I just have a thing for bright colored clothes…
