Two Parties at One Go.

Hello darlings,

How was your weekend? ♥

Mine was once again spent in Pori, with friends and (soon to be) family.

As I think I mentioned before, we were invited to my fiancé's child's Christening, and we were happy to go. Even though I refuse to be a mood kill, I had a feeling the party wouldn't be too fancy. I was right about that. We had to drive in some snowy desert in the middle of nowhere to reach the party, and the hospitality lacked so much. The people at the party didn't mingle at all, just ate with their own families and ate the food (which was good, I must say).

So, not really a heart-warming event, but at least it taught me how NOT to host one. So, not a lost case, but I felt sorry for the fresh father. He didn't look too happy with the setting, though was clearly happy about his young family. And after all, that's all that counts.

I tried to wear something - well, not conservative, but something like that - to the Christening, because even though we skipped the church part, we didn't know more than the father from the whole party. So, I tried to not make anyone upset because of what I wear. (Trust me, I seem to do that weekly, even though I dress appropriately, don't I?)

So, this is what I came up with:

Outfit of the day #1

Dress: Gift from my grandmother
Leggings: SpiritStore
Cardigan: Mango
Shoes: SpiritStore
Necklace: gift from a close friend
Body harness: GinaTricot
Cuff: GinaTricot
Belt: secondhand

I was pretty happy with this look, though it's maybe not as much "me" as I would've hoped. Oh, well... I tried to work the dress with the metallic shades and my favourite pair of leggings, so that it'd make a nice look for a family party.

Do you think I pulled this off?

After the Christening, we had our friend's 22nd birthday to celebrate. It was a small party, where we just hang out watching videos and stuff, but I felt that as it was his birthday, it would be nice to doll up a bit and look good for the event.

So, I changed into this:

Outfit of the day #2

Asymmetric tunic: GinaTricot
Earrings: Seppälä
Bangle: Europehouse
For other items, check the outfit #1 above ;)

I absolutely loved wearing this, that tunic is one of the best pieces in my wardrobe! It's easy to style both dressy and casual, and it's definitely versatile. Plus, I'm smitten about the asymmetry of it.

What do you think?

Now, my nails this weekend didn't really have much do to with the outfits, I just got inspired by Grace once again (Check out her blog, she's such an amazing young talent! ♥), and wanted to do this trendy half-and-half manicure. I had bought this amazing orange Mavala polish just last week, and wanted to give it a go:

Konad being used once again :D Base was Mavala, shades 67, Amsterdam, and 2, Madrid. (sorry for the dark photos, I just noticed - when uploading these - that the setting was wrong when taking these... God bless my fiancé, he hasn't yet got a clue about what's right for what :D)

Anyway, I hope you will all have a lovely start for your week!

(Oh, I have also some lovely news to tell, nothing big, but... I just need to take the time to write about it with thought ;))

Blog ya later!

  14. Johanna, I hate parties like that! LOL It's horrible the way people get into groups and STAY that way. Get out of your comfort zone and mingle with others. People can be so closed minded sometimes. Both of your outfits are great. It's ashame to feel stifled when deciding what to wear. I fell victim to that in the past also. Always trying to feel mindful of the people there. Great manicure girl! Looks bow-tiful! :)
