et tu gardes tes prières pour des pensées magiques

Body - 2nd hand
Skirt - Self-made
Socks - Present
Shoes New look
And all the jewellery you can't see from various places:-)

Well, this has been in the waiting, if you have been waiting that is. I have honestly been the worst at blogging, and pretty much everything else as well. I'm not even going to make any excuses or promises for the better, but I do try to not disappear for ages from the blogosphere or anywhere else.

This is just something I wore today whilst running errands (and possibly popping into some shops). Originally I didn't have these little floral socks on, but as I intended to go and find some summery shoes I thought I better put on a pair anyway. And these were the only ones that I didn't think looked ridiculous with these shoes. And finding nice shoes that would look good with or without socks seems to be such an impossibility! I may have managed this difficult task in the end. But still, why can't cute wee socks look pretty in ballerinas? Or maybe I'm just being annoyingly picky. I was also very conscious of the length of my skirt. I haven't actually worn this all that much after I made it last summer. I still like that it is seriously asymmetrical, but - even for me - the front is getting just a tad too close to the watermark. I think I can get away with it and will try and don it on more often (but I also could be horribly wrong about this..).

Hope you're all well and enjoying the warm&fickle weather♥!

I don't think your skirt looks too short, i think it's very pretty actually! I'm super impressed you made it yourself. And i think the socks look adorable with the ballerinas- though I know what you mean. Sometimes it just doesn't end up looking right and you just cant put your finger on why. Trial and error! ;)
