In my backyard.

red, black, white 03
Hello,
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.
red, black, white 02
red, black, white 01
red, black, white 04

Top and tights from H&M, skirt from Gina Tricot, hair piece from Bianco and boots from Bronx.

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

Also, I received two wonderful awards.

from FASHIONconfectionairy and Baska and Moon Apples and Sarah

Thank you so much, dearies! I'm passing these on to whoever wants them... I'm too tired to tag anyone now.

You look beautiful! I'm glad your little corner of Norway is getting warmer and showing signs of Spring :)

I like your national costume. Did you wear it in an event, or does everyone generally dress up for Norway's constitution day?

Thank you, I hope you have a lovely weekend, too!

It's so cool that celebrate in that awesome national costume! Also, the red and black outfit of yours is lovely, your little doggy managed to get into the first picture! Cute xoxo

oh I want to say so much much about that outfit, it's one of my favourites from you and that says a lot cause I practically find all your outfits perfect
I love the combination of red and stripes, I adore the little elephant necklace (I think I have the same one (H&M?), elephants are my favourite animals!) and the boots are amazing!
oh and the costume dress is amazing :D

You look beautiful in your national costume! I get very happy when I see people that try to maintain traditions and customs.:)

Hanne said...

Så fin du var, både i bunaden din og den "vanlige" outfiten:) Skjørtet var helt nydelig!
Sv. Har veldig lyst til å bestille fra Forever21, men det blir så dyrt med frakt og toll... Bestilte en del derfra da dollaren var på sitt laveste, for da klarte jeg å holde meg under 200 kr.-grensen:)
Håper du får en fin helg:)

Also, do you want to exchange links? I should have asked that a long time ago I guess it slipped my mind.
