One of my favorite bloggers, Leah, is once again hosting Outfit August, which is a fun idea about reusing older items from your closet and not being obsessed about all things new all the time, as is the case with most fashion blogs. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love new things. But I also love combining new things with old items, or just going with all old items sometimes. Anyways, it’s already mid August and I have had a slow start but alas, Outfit August is finally here! I wanted the first outfit of Outfit August that I would post on my blog to be a bit special, and I think this was the perfect outfit.
After returning from Rome, M was in a bit of a mood as he hates returning home from holiday (I’m the complete opposite, I love going back home because I miss my bed, I miss my closet, I miss my pets, friends and family) and he didn’t want to stay at home so we went out to have dinner inevitably watch the hokey (Prague and Ostrava are hosting this year’s hokey world championship). I wore an easy outfit. I started out with picking this dress to wear. It’s from Asos and is a structured scuba dress, it is the most comfiest thing ever! I’ve worn it I think twice before but never got pictures and then I was saving it to wear to someplace special. And then I thought, forget saving it! Wear it now and enjoy it!
Last Tuesday was a state holiday and M and I went on a little outing. Instead of staying home we went to Prague’s city center and had quite a nice trip. Our adventure started in good form – with lunch at a place called At the Blind Cat. We had delicious crepes (that is their specialty), pictured below is the one I had (it was with warm raspberries and vanilla ice cream and whipped cream, yum) – M had a salty crepe (I’ve never had one before and was surprised that the dough was different). We also had soup (mine was tomato, yum) and we shared an additional crepe for desert (with blueberries and cream) – so suffice to say we were stuffed (I could hardly move).
In this issue of Favorites we return to April 2010.
These photos were for the L’Oreal Colour Trophy competition. The photos were taken by Midzu Gombitova; Dagmar Popova did my hair (and playsuit and dress are MONIKK).
I mentioned in my last post that these are one of my all time favorite earrings. I love them so much. They were an impulse purchase ages ago (well that last post was from 2009!) and I still love them as much today as I did when I bought them!I think the reason why I like them so much is because they remind me of dream-catchers. So they have this dreamy magical feel to them, no? Also I love the combination of silver and gold (when it’s done right).
These photos are from last Wednesday, when I went to uni in the morning and then I met my sister for lunch (she was kind enough to take these photos, well, the ones of me anyway) and then I stopped by work. Wednesdays are always super busy but they’re also really fun.
