 Dress - H&M
Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters
Shoes - 2nd hand/Skopunkten

Here's some silly pictures of me visiting one of my favourite places in my hometown with mama. My mum used to work at these houses (that are a kind of a museum!) when I was wee and she often took me and my brother with her. I loved the place then, and I love it now. Unfortunately, it wasn't open, but we still had a lovely wander around. How great is the old mill with a smiling face? And we also found a lot of raspberries to snack on. Being a tourist in your own hometown is one of the nicest things. I've been taking mama to all the places we've driven by a hundred times and thought "I should go there one day.." So, I've been trying to forget about that one day and have a more of a carpe diem attitude and actually do all the things I think of doing.

Also, these are the last pictures of this wee polka dot dress. I turned it into something new (and better?). Will post about that soon! I'm off to explore more, have a beautiful Thursday!

I never noticed the face until you pointed it out. How wonderful! I also love how lush and green everything is.
