Another belated pre-London-holiday outfit post and it was an outfit that I quite liked. M and I went to do a spot of shopping before our vacation and we also went out to lunch to a burger joint (I had a vegetarian cheese burger but to be honest, I prefer veggie burgers if there are vegetable instead of cheese replacing the meat). I wore one of my favorite Melissa flats and the monochrome look with a pop of color really works for me.
Another belated pre-London vacation post, this time featuring a dress turned skirt DIY item. It was originally from Stradivarius, it is really old (bought like 7 years ago?) and since I turned it from a dress into a skirt shortly after purchasing it. I think I wore it as a dress only once as maxi dresses aren’t really my thing. While I like them on others, they very rarely feel like my style. (Currently in my dress collection I have two maxi dresses, both very old but I do occasionally wear them.) So I decided to turn it into a skirt and have worn it a few times, I prefer it like a skirt and am glad that I made the change (if I recall correctly, the dress was really hard to get into anyways).
I wore an old necklace, also from Stradivarius if I’m not mistaking. This look felt both relaxed with a slight boho vibe but at the same time with a slight edginess to it. I think the maxi skirt with the see-through fabric just does that on it’s own, the exposed yet covered juxtaposition.
A while ago M and I went to see the movie Spy (absolutely loved it!) and this is what I wore. I had my glasses on because there was a chance I would be driving and I based my whole look on my glasses.
Last week on Thursday M and I went to see the Mad Max: Fury Road film and we both loved it. It was predictably action packed, which is what we were hoping for, and Charlize Theron is so good in it (so is Tom Hardy, but I really feel the film is all about Furiosa, such a great character btw). I’m pretty sure we’re going to go see it again as it’s one of those films that are better on the big screen. I wore my Stradivarius studded flat ankle boots, because I felt that they were suitable for this film. I love dressing according to the movies we are about to go see. You know, theoretically, if I were to appear in the movie, I wouldn’t want to be wearing heels. Continue reading Mad Max: Furry Road
One of my favorite things about the Prague Zoo is its location. If you take the cable way it lends an especially beautiful view once you get to the top (you can just walk it up but taking the cable lift is fun). We had a fun time but I was freezing so bad (I was wearing a sweater and a jean jacket plus a pashmina scarf but it was so cold!)
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.
One more outfit from the weekend (the last one actually) and this one is from Saturday when we were running some errands. I wore my super cute Dorothy Perkins pointed toe coral flats. They have some really interesting studded detailing and they are really comfy so I really love these shoes.
Last Monday M and I went to see Bill Bailey and it was an absolutely great show. We’ve been fans of Black Books for years and have also seen lots of his available material online, so it was such a joy to actually see him live. Not to mention that in the midst of study hell, it was a very welcome break! I had another test to study for (that was written this Wednesday, I don’t know how it turned out yet but I think I did okay). Now I’m working on my thesis and that’s a whole other story. Guys, I have until Sunday and I’m pretty screwed but I’m trying my best (that’s also why I skipped yesterday’s post.) Then I have a bunch of other exams but back to Monday and the cute little outfit I wore…
