Trying to Layer Up.

Hey lovelies,

How are you all today? ♥ Are you having amazing plans for the weekend?

I am, though, as I'm writing this, it's 2am in Finland. Why would I post anything at this hour - well, my Internet connection tried desperately to fail me again. Luckily, I'm still the smarter one. Thank God we're not having an early wake-up tomorrow, though I must choose a couple of outfits I'll be comfortable for the weekend, and try to find a way to pack the camera, so I kinda would need the sleep. Oh, well.

Anyway, I want to apologize for not commenting too much these few days, but I must say I've been so stressed I rather stayed away from the web, as I like to read your posts with some thought so that I can actually comment with something meaningful. I've been releasing the pressure by tidying up boxes and bags in our place, so, that's why I've been a bit MIA.

I also want to thank you all for being such an amazing bunch of readers, and I love the fact there's already nearly 150 of you! It seems overwhelming to me. ♥

Besides cleaning, I've also been crafting a bit these days. And one of my projects is a cookbook collected from newspaper recipes.



Here's a sneak peek of that, later I'll be showing you the ready one, and telling about the project more.

But you probably want to see the outfit already?

Here we go!

Outfit of the day






Jeans: Cubus
T-shirt: ONLY
Denim vest: H&M
Blazer: H&M
Bow necklace: Seppälä
Wood bead necklace (worn as bracelet): DIY

This was something I just threw on, hoping it works okay. At school, I dress kinda casually, and usually wear more simple looks than even this one, but today I tried layering pieces a bit. What do you think about this look?

I think I need to save the promised manicure for the next post, as it really is for the party look, but Sunday will be here soon, right. In the meantime, enjoy your weekend, spend it with the people you love, and remember to eat great food! (Which reminds me, there's a new recipe in the food site, do check it out!)

Have a fabulous weekend!

  11. This is a really cute outfit Johanna, love the jean vest and the bow necklace. You totally made my day saying my outfit reminded you of Charlotte from SATC...her style is my favorite from the bunch!

  12. Been eyeing your blue jeans for quite some time now... ;) really want them! Hahaaa 2 am?! Wow, such dedication!

    Thank you for your darling comment. That was seriously too sweet :)


  13. Oon niin rakastunut sun sähkönsinisiin pöksyihin. Tykkään :)

    Mäkin oon ollut poissa viimeaikoina, sori siitä.. Mulla työt painottuu alkuvuoteen, joten oon tehnyt aika pitkiä päiviä viimeiset pari kuukautta. Mutta nyt alkaa vähitellen helpottaa ja pääsen jopa lueskelemaan sun postauksia myös!

    Leikekirja resepteistä on tosi hyvä idea (ja sun on tosi kaunis!). Me saatiin joskus sellainen aloitettu versio joululahjaksi, ollaankin täytelty sitä ihan hyvää vauhtia. Joka torstain hesarissa kun on Ruokatorstai-osio, josta yleensä löytyy kaikkea ihanaa. :) Leikekirjasta onkin kiva sitten kaivella niitä suosikkeja pidemmänkin ajan takaa.

    Ihanaa viikonloppua muru,
