Sunglasses and Prints

There has been a silence in here for almost two months now but with a good reason: I've been very sick for this entire time getting a new virus after another and am having my second batch of (extremely disgusting) antibiotics which gladly have apparently started to work, since I'm starting to feel that life is somewhat worth living again. Fingers crossed it's only going up from here forth.

On to these lovely things. Went to Monki on Thursday because I was on a hunt for new sunglasses because the sun has actually started to shine up here and it feels really weird but I'm sort of enjoying it. And as I don't know where I have put my favourite ones (my room is under reorganization) and only had tortoise shell ones I had gotten from my little brother years ago. These were sooo lovely but they didn't have them at the first Monki I went (got them later at another one) so I just checked the sales racks and noticed this cool print they had in some clothes. 

First I grabbed the t-shirt and then I found the blouse. The t-shirt was instantly a go when I put it on: soft 100% cotton and the hem is so nice and long. With the blouse I had to ponder a bit because it's quite short yet baggy. But the viscose feels so wonderful on and the print just matches with my hair and colours so damn well I just needed to have it. Apparently I'm trying to incorporate at least some colours into my outfits because they make me look a bit more alive, even though I still adore all black ensembles to the skies.

Babbling on but I've missed this so much but as I've felt like a limp spaghetti or covered in bruises I've mostly just laid on the sofa trying to keep my mind set.

Hopefully this spring will turn out better than the winter has been so far!

Double Trouble

Bought two pairs of black ankle boots this week. Both were on sale and are synthetic leather. And as a really weird note they have the same checkered fabric lining in the shoes, even though they're from completely different stores. I'm really digging the ones with bucklestraps but the other pair I had to hunt for in my size from shops in three cities, look quite like baby Dr. Martens but were probably 1/5 of the price of vegan docs.

Now I have two other pairs of decent looking shoes in addition to the ones I got earlier this year, which have been really great when the weather has changed rapidly from +5 to -10 making the water freeze and the ice melt constantly: I haven't fallen down, not even once despite the skull conditions! Hoping these will be the same and will help me to stay on my feet.

sweater/Crocker

- New camou-sweater from the JC boy's department. Absolutely fell for it even though it's not black. When I put it on it just felt like it belongs on me. Beautiful viscose blend, lovely and sleek.

- Hair kept in a braid for several days before letting it loose. Should trim it a bit it's starting to look ridiculous.

- No make-up because whatever. 

- Back to work tomorrow and it's starting to feel good despite the first day shock which almost threw me off the wagon but gladly didn't. Starting to get the hang of it but feeling scared I'm getting sick again (jfc pls no), fingers crossed.
