Red hair inspiration.

From Torpore

Lately I've been quite fascinated with these beautiful pictures I've come across on flickr - of  redheaded girls. Red hair is so lovely, and so intriguing. These pictures also make me long for red hair myself, to be frank. However, I think I'm going to keep my blonde hair for a little while longer...

Mustard yellow, black and soft pink...


... is a really wonderful colour combination, in my opinion, and those are also the colours my outfit today composes of. 


Dress from H&M, blouse and shoes from Noa Noa, tights from Vero Moda, and bow from Quietland.

My new 40s dress.


I wore this vintage dress from the 40s yesterday - one I recently won on ebay. I think it's so pretty with the lace collar and the lace on the sleeves.

In my backyard.

I am sorry for neglecting my blog for nearly a week, but I've been rather busy with a conference, finishing a paper and enjoying the lovely weather we had. But now I'm back, for the time being!
I took these pictures this afternoon in my backyard - it's now cloudy and rainy and not pretty and sunny as it has been for days and days.

I also thought I'd show you my national costume I wore on Sunday - Norway's constitution day.

Also, I received two wonderful awards.

Pretty bows.

Pretty bows
A few days ago I bought these ever so pretty bows from Bianco, that I thought I'd show you. I'm thinking of going back and buying more colours, perhaps.

The old farm


There is an old, abandoned farm where I live (technically now belonging to the museum though), which I think is really very charming and pretty. I often go for walks there.

There is also a deep forest behind it.

I wish more houses had grass on their roofs today.

Sun and sea.

Sparkly water

Photos from a couple of days ago that I took at the seaside. The ocean looked so pretty and sparkly in the sunshine.

My dog, Tassus, also came along and he seemed to enjoy it a lot.

Sunny weather.

The last few days have been so lovely and sunny here. Even if the temperature didn't rise that much, it still caused the snow to almost be completely gone most places, and the sunshine's given me a huge boost of endorphins - something which is excellent when you're stessing out over exams and the ridiculous amount of curriculum that needs to be read.

Top from Mango, tights from Cubus, shoes from Topshop, bow from Tjallamalla and the shorts are vintage.

White pumps.

My aunt came over with some old clothes and shoes today including these pretty white pumps. Apparently they have belonged to my grandmother - and should be pretty old (probably from the 60s or 70s) - but the thing is, they look like they haven't been worn at all! 
DSC05179I also got a couple of other things that I'll show you another day.
I hope you are all enjoying your weekends - I need to go back to studying.
