This is what I wore today to walk to the grocery store: my trusted Burberry trench, my new hand-knitted bag and jeans from Orsay.
The weather has been crazy lately: +30 C one day, +15 C the next.

I wore this to work a couple of days ago; I really love this look, it's a bit Marilyn Monroesque. The skirt is from Tesco's here in Ostrava, the shoes are from Orlando, Florida about 6 years ago (and I still wear them constantly), the top is from a rummage sale and the purse from Italy (high quality leather, but not a name brand).

This is the first time I've ever made a bag for myself instead of buying it. I knitted this in only 10 days and the total cost is probably about 2 euros (for the yarn, which was from a discount shop).
I am sure that this will be the first of many purses and bags that I knit, since I'm a total purse-freak; I buy more all the time. So maybe now I can be more self-sufficient when it comes to purses.

Walking our cat Chanel. We try to take both cats out nearly every day - they really love it.
I am looking very much like a hippy in this outfit. Mostly the pieces are from India. The top is EDC by Esprit, but I bought it in India: I love the colour and the paisley pattern. The hat is Marimekko, from Finland.

With the sun in my eyes and the wind in my hair. It's July now and the weather in Ostrava is crazy: it was +11 C this morning when I woke up! We went out for ice-cream, but I was wearing a sweater: it was +23 C, but quite windy.
This is my new, fave sweater that I bought as a souvenir from Zurich. It was on sale at Vero Moda for 10 euros. I wear it constantly and like it so much that I'm planning on knitting one similar to it in a different colour. I've never knitted a sweater before, so let's see what happens.
The purse was a souvenir from Krakow, Poland. I no longer buy knick-knacks as souvenirs: these days I only buy things that I can wear, i.e. clothes and accessories. And whenever I wear them, I think of the place where I bought them - so they are real souvenirs.
