Summerdays galore

Oh my what a beautiful  summerweather we’ve had the last weeks. The temperature reaches 25 degrees C and I feel like I’m melting away.
The best thing with June is all the meadow flowers. This is how it looks around the company where I work right now. The surroundings are very nice, I guess you have seen the view over lake? This is the view on the other side. 


This summer we have a couple of formal and festive events to go to. I realized that I have to buy new clothes. At Nelly.com I found the printed floral one, it is snuggly down to the hip and then flared. The black one with a draped part, which hopefully will make my tummy disappear is also bought at Nelly. The dress in the middle is bought at a rockabilly/gothabilly store in the neighbor town. They had lots of fun dresses but this one was cheap and it fitted. I will use the black dress this Saturday with the glittery sculls jewelry I bought at Glitter. We are invited to a wedding party in Oslo (Norway). 
My grandmother had her 92nd birthday on our National day, we celebrated her at my parents place. She was more tired than ever but her mind is crystal clear. I decided to try a layered look in spite the hot weather. Army boots from Invader, skirt from Ewa I Walla, striped leggings from Gudrun Sjödén and a light tunic from Joy.
I’m also finished planting and sowing in my vegetable garden. This is my trick to make the fragile kale plants to survive. I used those plastic containers that cherry tomatoes can be bought in, as little green houses. The earth bugs don’t like the hot and humid air under these.
I got different pumpkin seeds from Ms. Misantropia and have planted 4 in my compost bin. An old window will hopefully boost the growth of them and give me pumpkins for autumn. 
This is a photo of the youngest just before he plunge in the water. We had a barbecue party with his class yesterday and the kids bathed and played games at the beach.
Tomorrow is my last working day before vacation. On Friday the kids are having their last day and on Saturay we will go on a party. See you next week!

  1. Jag älskar lupiner, de växer överallt här, men av någon anledning inte in min trädgård.

    Din outift är super, very Tim Burton :)

    Jag är glad att mina pumpor kommit upp hos dig! Jag har 22 plantor i år, som snart ska få flytta in i växthuset.

  2. Well, I think you already know which of those outfits is my favourite!

    That water looks really cold, and the boy next in line looks like he's shivering to me! But when you're young, I think that's the best part. :)

  3. Hello!!
    I'm so happy you enjoy the summer season :D In Greece we already hit 32 degrees today! That black dress looks classy and beautiful but my eye got to the necklace. Omg it looks gorgeous and it must have it's own photograph for people like me to admire ^-^ You have such a lovely style and i love to see your full outfit pictures - of course if you are feeling like doing it. But from me, beautiful lady, beautiful style.. why not share your clothing taste with us? Also, happy birthday to your grandma (wow 92 that's amazing!)

  4. 25°C? Seriously? It was 35°C over here and while 25°C is already too much for me, it still sounds like heaven compared to this infernal pit of a city...:/

    Anyway, I'm sorry for complaining. ^^ Lovely haul, you'll look so elegant in that wrap dress with the skull set. And I love the layered look too! ;)

  5. Such gorgeous wild flowers! Your country is so beautiful and the water the kids are playing in is so crystal blue!

    I love your new outfits! The layered look you wore to your grandmother's birthday is adorable! It's wonderful that her mind is still sharp at her age.

  6. Vilka härliga sommarbilder!
    Gillade lager-på-lager outfiten, men det måste varit lite varmt som du sa? Phew :P
    Vi har haft 25-30 c här. 47 c i uterummet... helt lagom! Man drunknar ju inte i sin egen svett eller så...
