|Cardi: Old Navy, Top: from Korea, Necklace: c/o Liz :), Skirt: Madewell, Shoes: Birkenstock|
So, this skirt, right? It's one of the pieces that I basically spent July living in. It's comfortable, it's cute, it goes with just about anything... yet for some reason, I kept wearing it with my black top from Korea and my black Birkenstocks (the cardigan was mostly brought along in my handbag, in case we should encounter air-con - but I like it with the cardigan, so yeah). I think one of the reasons I like this skirt so much, is that it reminds me of swimming pool tiles - and I do love swimming.
Sweet, lovely Liz helped me get this skirt from Madewell, since they only ship to North America and Japan (Why?!) - and she put the sweetest present in the parcel for me, too! It included the necklace I am wearing here, a really pretty Ikat scarf, and bunny-scented hand cream. Yup, you read that right. Rabbit hand lotion. This girl knows me well.
Also, say hello to my pride and joy - this chair that I rescued from the scrap heap, dragged home, and spray-painted pink. You see, I have this vision... since we basically don't own any furniture other than that dresser I painted green, I decided that for our dining table, we'd buy some more of these chairs, and I'd spray-paint them all in different pastel shades. I found out where they sell this exact chair, and happily they were dirt cheap - and super comfy, though I'm buying some seat cushions or Victor will go on strike.
This baby is raspberry pink, and her three siblings will be peach, vanilla yellow and pale blue. Later, they will be joined by a green sibling and a lilac one. I've already bought all the spray paint. The dining table will be a dark one from Ikea, and we're putting a black-and-white geometric rug under it, so the chairs will really get a chance to shine!
