MY DAY IN JELGAVA, LATVIA



I've been back in the UK for a few days now, and I've started my job which is a completely new experience for me, so I'm adjusting to everything very slowly. After work each day, I come home and feel extremely tired. I'm sure after some time everything will fall into places and I'll find ways to do more useful things in the evenings.

 I still have some photos from my time in Latvia, and these were probably the last ones that were taken. That day me and my family decided to take a day trip to a city called Jelgava, because that is where we lived when I was young. We left our house in Jelgava when we moved to Finland, which was when I was 5 years old. I mentioned to my family that I had no recollection of how our house looked or the surrounding area or even the city so we decided to go there for the day. It was really interesting, not only for me but also for my mum whose old apartment we visited, and my dad, whose old school we saw.

This doesn't happen very often but I decided to make this a mix of a lifestyle and outfit post. For the first time in a while I took some photos during the day. My sweater and skirt is from H&M, by the way. Hope you enjoy! ♥


This sculpture was dripping water, however when you stand near it, the water starts dripping a lot more so I freaked out!
My mum in her usual element - taking photos of everything around.
"Please don't climb the tree! I am the oldest tree in Jelgava! Be careful with me, please!" We ended the day at Chili Pica and I went for a cheese, aragula and ham pizza. I'm crazy about aragula lately!
