After the rain

Yesterday I decided to piece together different kinds of aesthetics from my wardrobe to form my outfit, a 2 year old jacket, a long forgotten lace top, and probably a 3 year old slightly wrinkled skirt. Yay me for wearing my old clothes! I wanted to pair something soft and flowy with the tough looking military jacket, resulting in this pretty neat kind of sillhouette. I'm thinking of maybe doing a weekly remixing series in which I wear this jacket in different kind of ways, what do you guys think of that?

And I wore my hair in a side plait again. I really need to get some new hair ties (the only one I could find is a measly pink one), how is it that they always magically disappear everytime? I would buy a whole packet and within weeks or months, they would all have vanished into thin air. Okay, enough of my hair tie woes, I'm now off to enjoy my Saturday. Probably with some magazines, watching My Fair Lady and enjoying nice food with the family.

Happy Easter Weekend:)

I call reviving old clothes "shopping in my own closet." ;) I adore this skirt. You should try it with a loose grey tee, but the jacket is lovely with it.

I love finding old clothes I forgot I had, it happens quite often to me because I have way too many clothes :)
I have dissapearing hairties too!

Hope you have a lovely easter weekend.

I am seriously excited for your shopping spree in H&M! You have to show and tell what you buy when you do :P

And I know exactly what you mean with hairties. I swear mine just walk out on their own.

The 2-year old jacket doesn't look like it's 2 years old. I love it! I was even gonna tell you that it's very pretty and you could use it with a lot of other pieces :)
