Flamingo Friday #3

Hi there! Back from hols and into the hustle and bustle of everyday life. :) I hope your summer has been great as well! :) Uhm we wont talk about the weather. :(  I hope you are not tired of my current flamingo theme goin on here, here is another outfit I wore earlier this summer. :) A bit different from my usual vintageinspired style, I sometimes like to branch out in a more modern and preppy style direction.

Im really into this skirt and tights combo, skirt being a lot shorter than my usual midi preferance but this totally works. :) And not to forget I got hold of a sequined flamingo t-shirt, a dream come true! :)

Well what else is goin on, Ive really upped my sewing game lately as I have signed up for my third sewing class starting in September. :) I cant wait!! Its another beginner course cause my skills are really so so at the moment. ;) Hehehe hopefully practice makes perfect, Im really motivated this time around as one of my goals is to make my own circle skirts. :) As it is now Im spending a small fortune on paying others to make skirts for me but I would really love it if I could make my own one day. It shouldnt prove too difficult, Im trying to get the hang of it all, bought me some cheap fabric to practice on. :) Im going nutters thinking of all those wonderful, fun and quirky fabrics out there just beggin to be used for a skirt!! :) LoL
My current sewing projects are some new curtains for my bedroom and some pillowcases. :)

Outfit details:

Cardigan from Lindex (old)
T-shirt from Lindex
Skirt from Lindex
Shoes from New Look (old)

Uhm on a final note, speaking of flamingos, look what turned up in the post the other day...

Flamingo Friday #2

Hello ladies! Here is my second flamingo outfit out of four, this is a favourite of mine. :) Im also sporting my new flamingo sandals for the first time, such a pretty sight. :) Im so happy we had one day of summer (!) so that I could put this outfit on show. :)

Im so sorry for the dress riding up a little, I didnt pay any attention to it when taking these photos, Im a bit annoyed by it really. It kind of ruins the impression of the dress, how it flows over the body. Im a smitten kitten with this fabric and the shape of this dress, its fun,quirky and beautiful at the same time. :) Its  from the Danish brand Mania Copenhagen, I already own several mania dresses but this is the first time Im trying this pin up model. Its lower in the back than the front (cant remember the english word for that).. ;)

My flamingo sandals is by Miss Lfire, my first pair of shoes from them. Im really pleased with them, not only looking spectacular but surprisingly comfortabel as well. :) Wont be my last pair, Ive already got my eye on a few, hehehe. :)
So what else is cooking, well I have my last day at the office tomorrow and then looking very much forward to holidays for three weeks. We will visit the family summerhouse/cabin in southern Norway and preferably spend a day or two at the beach (fingers crossed) We are also going to the Zoo for the first time with our toddler, I hope she will like it there as she is really into animals. :) Other than that we will just relax and spend time with family and friends.Kind of low key vacation which I think is fine by my toddler. :)

Outfit details:
Cardigan from H&M (old)
Dress from Mania Copenhagen (recent)
Sandals from Miss Lfire (recent)

Flamingo Friday #1

Well hello there summer! Better late than never I guess. ;) Last week was hot and sunny and I was finally able to let out my eager flamingos. ;) This is the first flamingo related outfit out of three. :)

This is my first flamingo skirt woop woop from new to me brand Banned Apparel. I know this sweet lady in UK which acts as my personal buyer in cases where the postage to Norway is insane and way to expensive. She bought this fantastic skirt for me and shipped it herself to Norway, saved me lots of pounds. Truly an act of kindness, she is a life (dress and skirt) saver that one! :) Im forever grateful Kels! :)

Im playing around with a belt or no belt, I think the outfit looks better with a belt. :) And look, Ive made a new little birdy friend. :) As you may have noticed Im no wearer of jewellery but that might have changed since I stumbled upon these gorgeous brooches from down under brand Erstwilder. These are the perfect compliments to any retro/quirky/vintage inspired outfit! :) I must admit I have purchased 4 different brooches already, I see a new addiction brewing. ;)

Well for those of you that follow me on Instagram you caught some glimpses of what I was up to in Brussels. The meetings ended up being quite a hassle especially since I was new to it all and apparently Norway was in the spotlight which totally threw me over. I got asked a bunch of questions in which I wasnt able to reply cause I had no knowledge of the matter in question. Blah! I felt really embarrassed and uncomfortable not only for myself but on Norways behalf as well. :(  Well now I  know better and if I can help it I will not attend these particulary meetings anymore. I was only stepping in for a colleague of mine who wasnt able to participate. But at least I got to spend some time in Brussels (shopping anyone? ) so it was not all bad. :)
