Just a quick outfit post today. This outfit is from last Monday when M and I stopped by his parents’ flat to pick up his Asos order. He ordered 3 polo shirts and I sneaked in a pair of shoes and a cute tee. I had also ordered a dress but I sent it back because the zipper was faulty. Anyways, my outfit was a mix of quirky and casual, which I think is my typical style really. The shoes are Topshop camouflage bow flats.
I styled this outfit around this H&M beige coat with gold zippers. I’ve had this coat since the middle of winter, I bought it in the sales and have since been waiting for it to be warm enough for me to wear it. It was the last one there and it was a size bigger than I normally wear, but I prefer a relaxed fit sometimes.
Hip Hip Hurray! My Erin Condren life planner arrived today (one day early) and I couldn’t be more happy with it. I absolutely love decorating it! So far I’ve done a bit of this week, all of last week and the two weeks before. I’m using washi tape to mark the weekend and also to hide the writing on the bottom (that just says lists, meal plans, exercise etc.)
I can’t believe it has taken me so long to wear these shoes again – you may remember this post with outfit photos from February 2014, and that was the last time I had worn these awesomely high ankle boots. Until now, when I wore them on Easter Monday to a family lunch at my grandparents’ house.
I have a bit of an obsessive compulsive personality and when I get into something, I really get into it. (Hence my huge shoe collection or my Lush stash.) I’ve been pretty good with make-up (I’m using up the items that are already in my collection and not buying new ones; but the hoarder in me is going slightly nuts when I run out of something and don’t repurchase. Because what if all of a sudden I need it out of the blue, what if there’s a zombie apocalypse and I’m left without my favorite make-up foundation?? Actually, yes, I totally will be repurchasing my favorite foundation, just not the other stuff. But foundation is very important. Priorities people.) I’ve been quite good with shoes too (but that’s more because I’ve run out of space to store them). I’ve been okay with Lush (I’m not buying any more bath bombs until I use up like half of my collection.)
But now I have a new addiction: I’ve gone planner crazy. It all started with placing an order for an Erin Condren life planner. No, actually, it all started with realizing that I am so unorganized and I that I totally need to buy a planner to plan ahead and have things listed and written down. I’ve always been into cute pens and stationery even as a little kid, I’ve always loved stickers so it’s actually quite surprising that it has taken me so long to get into the planner craze. Anyways, I thought I’d share some of my planner decoration collection and if you’re from Czech Republic, this could help you with where to look for cute stickers and washi tape.
A few days ago M and I went to see Fast & Furious 7. I had on a really cute outfit and I went all matchy-matchy. (My shoes were coordinated with the details on my satchel bag, and went well with my wool blazer, my dress matched the main color of the bag, my tights were black as was my cardigan and my pashmina scarf. It was all good.) As we were headed for the garage to get our car and go to the cinema, I heard this noise (like if my shoe was stuck on something and then popped away) but I didn’t notice anything and we went to the cinema. When we got there and on the way to get our tickets, the same thing happened with the other shoe. This time I paid more attention and then I realized that my sole (actually both of the soles) had become unattached from the shoe! Bloody hell! Literally one of my worst nightmares!! Both of my shoes were hanging on only at the toe part of the shoe! It was very difficult to walk (as I was worried the whole thing would come off and I’d trip and die.) We had a little over 15 minutes before the movie was supposed to begin so M went to get tickets and I went to Aldo to buy some shoes. I ended up buying the shoes pictured in the photo below (I didn’t manage to get outfit photos before.)
One of my favorite parts of the weekend is always when M and I and Mr. Pig go on a super long walk. I love that it’s the three of us together, we don’t get much down time during the week. So these long walks are really special to me. I’m also glad that I remembered to take my phone as I usually just leave it home and there wouldn’t have been photos otherwise. I’ve been wearing these shoes to work (I wore them two times last week) but hadn’t managed to get any outfit photos so I risked taking them on the pig walk and happily Dracul didn’t get them all dirty. You might remember them from the leopard print shoes post?
Picking up where I left off with Outfit August, here are a few picks from last week. Starting with Thursday‘s food shopping outfit. It has gotten rather cold in Prague so I’m currently wearing lots of variations of this outfit: opaque tights, sweater or leather jacket, cute dress, cute flats.
I’m sorry the photo above is so grainy, it was dark by the time we got to the store and since I hadn’t been documenting my outfits at the beginning of the week, I wanted to have at least something to show you. My outfit consisted of several old pieces (both my dress and the sweater are really old; the dress is from H&M and I bought it in 2011 – I haven’t worn it in ages but because of Outfit August, I decided to revisit it.) I’m wearing a (new) flower headband but you can’t really see it (which was my lazy equivalent of making an effort). The shoes are also new, I bought them in the middle of summer this year in the Topshop sale, they were super cheap. Right away I knew I wanted to wear them with black opaque tights to really highlight those awesome cut-outs (as much as I dislike cut-outs on dresses, I LOVE them on shoes!)
Better late than never seems to be my mantra lately. I didn’t manage to post yesterday as I had anticipated, but hey, at least I have some pretty interesting outfits to show you. Starting with the most summery of them all (and most bizarre).
