Lately on Instagram

yummy chocolate fruit cake

Since we are in the process of moving from the apartment we have been living in for almost three years into a newly rented house, Easter has been mostly marked by throwing belongings into cardboard boxes and buying cleaning supplies. I did however manage to squeeze in some quality time with friends, a bit of chocolate cake and a few pleasant, yet much too short walks. How's your week so far, guys?

Easter Weekend

Friday morning: oh, I don't have to go to work. I can go back to bed. Yes!
Friday evening : time to catch up on old X-files episodes in between packing up our apartment.
Saturday: finally able to sit on a patio (even though bundled in blankets) and drink during the day like a respectable European.

Saturday evening : more beer and live music at the local pub.
Sunday morning: obviously way too much beer at the local pub.
Sunday: chugging a strong cappuccino while enjoying some afternoon sun and ignoring the ringing in my ear.
Sunday evening : dinner with family (hopefully no beer drinking) and finishing blog posts for the week

Old Navy shorts

It seems I'm developing a little bit of an obsession with pink lately. I can't really put my finger on what's causing it so I'm just gonna go with the flow and enjoy it :) I'm really excited about the cute pyjama shorts and the soft top I found in the clearance section at Old Navy for $5 and $3 - they're going to be so great for warm summer nights. The sweater I came across at Joe Fresh while doing my groceries on Sunday and it was $14. Not bad for a total of $22, eh?

A Little Bit of Graphics Goes a Long Way

I'm lucky enough to have a husband that not only likes to dress up, but also doesn't mind running around stores with me in search of the perfect bargain. Since the last post I did with one of his outfits was so popular (people actually still google him), I thought I'd snap some photos of what he had on today. It reminded me of something Johnny Lee Miller would wear in Elementary. What do you guys think?

Weekend Shopping Guide

little lack dress outfit

I've been loving my new Kimchi Blue flats so much that I've spent most of my daydreaming hours this week picturing the perfect outfits for them (which mainly involve me being in Paris...ahem). I didn't find the exact pair I bought but I managed to replace them with an almost identical one for these Polyvore style boards. Which outfit do you guys like more?

Latest Finds

I find that I often come across the best bargains when I'm actually not looking for anything. That's exactly how I ended up getting these cute Kimchi Blue flats for $9.99 and the Avene thermal water set for $16 ( I love to spritz it on my face before I put on moisturizer in the morning). The H&M jeans were a more targeted operation. I really wanted a nice high waisted pair and I knew that the H&M jeans usually fit my curves (to be read behind) perfectly. I found the ones in the picture for $24.95 minus the %20 I had from a Virgin coupon. Have you found any good bargains lately?

Saturday Morning Stroll

Even though the temperatures were not that encouraging this past weekend (hence the super bundled up look), I braved the cold and tried to spend as much time as possible outside. On Saturday we took a stroll downtown to browse the little local stores and I managed to squeeze in a little OOTD shoot. I'm wearing my Old Navy wool coat (also featured in this post), my new Zigi ankle boots (also featured here) and the cozy H&M snood I raved about last week. How was your weekend, guys and gals?
