August Feels

September 15, 2015

Every August I develop a strong fancy towards full length skirts. Maybe because it's chillier outside and my pins need a bit of coverage, maybe it's because I'm tired of wearing all the short skirts (yeah, right, like that's possible!) and need something a bit more ladylike. Whatever the reason behind my late summer's love for long skirts, I was pretty damn happy that this monochrome gem of a package arrived just before my last few days in Tallinn.
Sometimes when ordering things off the Internet, especially from Asian shops, you can get the crappiest piece of shh ever. With this skirt I was afraid that it's going to be totally see-through, made for someone that's fifty centimeters shorter than I am, the pattern being completely off and what not. But how gorgeous is this floor-gracing dream? I seriously had to contain myself to not twirl around the park instead of just plain walking, it's so dreamy! It's currently sold out at Style Moi, but I'm sure that with some Googling skills you'll be able to find something equally as nice. 
You can bet on good quality, however, by buying local design. Just before taking these pictures, I hopped by Nu Nordik (which is quite possibly the coolest design store in Tallinn) and borrowed this little navy style pin by Sirje Raudsepp to accompany my outfit. Feeling quite glamorous and daring, I pinned it on my waist - a trick learnt from the always chic Stellarium

Augustis tekib mul juba mitu aastat järjest mingi suur tõmme maani seelikute poole. Võib-olla on see nii, sest ilmad on jahedamad ja mu jalad tahavad pisut peidus olla, võib-olla olen lihtsalt tüdinenud lühikeste seelikute kandmisest (jajah, nagu see oleks võimalik) ja tahan kanda midagi väljapeetumat. Misiganes see põhjus ka ei ole, mul oli väga hea meel, et see musta, valge ja hallikirju postipakk jõudis minuni täpselt enne paari viimast päeva Tallinnas
Mõnikord internetist tellides ja eriti, kui tegu on Aasia poodidega, olen sattunud selliste ebaõnnestumiste otsa, et ise ka ei usu. Seda seelikut tellides kartsin näiteks, et see on täiesti läbipaistev, tehtud kellelegi, kes on minust pool meetrit lühem, et muster on korrast ära ja mida kõike veel. Aga läks õnneks ja sain enda riidekappi ühe imeilusa seeliku, mille ma mingis meeltesegaduses ka siia kaasa võtsin (pikad seelikud ja rattaga sõitmine?). Kadriorus pidin end igatahes kõvasti tagasi hoidma, et mitte kõndimise asemel keerutades ringi liikuda. See seelik on praegu Style Mois küll välja müüdud, aga ma olen kindel, et kui onu Google appi võtta, siis leiate midagi võrdväärselt ilusat. 
Heale kvaliteedile saab aga loota kodumaist disaini soetades. Enne kui neid pilte tegema läksime, käisin kiirelt läbi Nu Nordikust (kes ei tea, siis see on üks eriti äge ja avastamist täis disainipood Vabaduse väljaku ääres) ja laenasin enda riietust kaunistama selle Sirje Raudsepa ordenprossi. Kuna tundsin end peaaegu glamuurselt ja omamoodi isepäiselt, siis kinnitasin prossi oma vööle - trikk, mille õppisin alati šikilt Stellalt blogist Stellarium

    1. Thanks! The bow was kind of an impulse addition, but it somehow pulls it all together.

    1. Exactly! When I order two things, then one of them is usually crap and the other one kind of okay, but this skirt is a gem!

  5. I prefer longer skirts, my legs don't look good above the knee so longer lengths are my thing. It's really nice
