Botanical Gardens + the one thing I bought on Black Friday!

Sweater: Esprit, Top: Anthro, Skirt + sunnies: Madewell, Shoes: Superga, Watch: Fossil

Hello, hello, does anyone still remember me? I'm currently down for the count with some kind of new super-flu, so I thought it would be fun to go through some pictures from this summer and finally blog again! What can I say, in the summer I just want to spend every living minute outside and soak up that Vitamin D, and blogging tends to go out the window. 

These pictures were taken at the botanical gardens in Cluj-Napoca in Romania. Since I had to have an operation this January, I didn't really think spontaneous trips would be in the cards for us this year, but well... Cluj-Napoca gives you value for your money! We had the loveliest long weekend there, probably my favourite memory is watching almost all of Little Shop of Horrors at a free student performance in the town centre. It was raining like crazy that evening so all the seats were wet, but we stood up for the whole thing anyway, swaying in time with the music. I'm telling you; you haven't lived until you've seen a man dressed up as a plant saying, in a thick Romanian accent, "No shit SHERRRRLOKKK!" 

Now since I'm here and have a lot of outfit photos backed up, I'm thinking I might alternate between summer and cold-weather outfits, just for some, ah, realism? Or something? You want realism, how about this: Yesterday, I hocked up some slime and then accidentally bit into it before I could spit it out. And that slime was thick enough to chew!

Oh, but let's talk about shopping! I'm usually not able to do much Black Friday shopping for one reason or another, plus I try to stay away from the whole shopping hysteria thing, but... this year... something I really wanted anyway was already on sale. And then I could get 25% off the sale price. And I just couldn't help myself when I had the chance to score a pair of designer jeans I'd been lusting over for that kind of money. So... 

These are the Pierced Cruiser jeans from Madewell's special event a few months back. They were supposed to be available in-store only, for one day only, but then Madewell took pity on those of us who don't live on that side of the planet and released a small batch on their website, too! I don't know if you can tell from this picture, but they've put in a stripe of lighter jean material on the outside of each leg. So. Damn. Cool! It will probably be a month or two before I get them, I mean they won't even ship until December. But it's nice to have something to look forward to!

Anyone else get something on Black Friday?
