1st of May, and the night before, are regarded official Drinking Days in Finland.
To honor the time-long tradition, I wore pretty clothes while getting rid of a bit of a hangover.
Y-day, we stayed in, and had a sauna. Today, we went out to see if we could catch a parade of old, fancy cars. Well, they drove by too fast, and skipped following the predetermined route, so we only say a few pretty rides. Better than nothing, though :)
After, we had pizza (ate too much, oof) and came home to drink some sparkly wine. And then husband retired at 7:30 pm :D
At first, I thought I'd go super-goth, but after trying on my Victorian inspired satin skirts, I figured it was a bit much.
We live in the country-side, after all.
I settled for my new fav skirt, and a matching top hat. Completed the look with a lace blouse, and lace tights.
And for the first time this spring, I got to wear purdy heels <3
|Skirt, top hat: Heather Wielding Originals|
Lace blouse: second hand (peppercorn)
Shoes: second hand
The top hat is a story on its own.
I made it just a week ago, and broke some rules with it to make it weather-proof, comfortable and long lasting.
I made another one, and am currently in the process of making a little tutorial on them.
I'm really pleased with the results: the day was windy, and my hat showed no sing of wanting to fly away :D
Made husband take a few photos after we came home, and he said all sorts of silly things while taking the snap-shots, so... giggles all around :D
Spring has officially sprung, and I hope to make the best of it. Hope you'll do the same :)
