Neon & Lace

Heya everyone!

How are you today? ♥

So, remember when I said it's finally starting to look like Spring here?

Erase that memory. Immediately.

Why? Because it snowed yesterday (Monday). Like, a lot. Here in Tampere, that meant knee-deep snow. And it kept coming. The city faced the worse traffic situation in decades and I was unlucky enough to take part in that. My 15 minute drive t work took 1,5 hours, and if that wasn't stressing enough, I also managed to drive a little bit out of the road, because it was so darn icy.

Not to worry, me and the car are both more than okay. It just got me scared. (I mean, what else?)

Anyways, as it took me quite a while to get home, too, I wasn't really well enough for school today. So I studied home, and tried to make myself feel better by dressing up. (If you too agree that fashion makes you feel better, no matter what the worry, see the previous post. ♥) And I must say, it kinda worked.

But then I had to go to work. :D

What was the secret to feeling good today? Well, this:

Yeah, I know, I really can't take a serious photo. Hence, I make faces.

Blazer: Mango
Top: GinaTricot
Jeans: Stocker
Shoes: SoWhat
Feather earrings: H&M
Aviators: Citymarket (grocery store :D)
Flower ring: Seppälä

So basically I was putting together neon (yes, it's neon yellow even though it looks like a pastel one :D) and lace, both trends I really like this season. (Though I like them both even if they aren't trendy...) But as you can see, it's really, really not that Spring-like here. Darn you, snow. Though at least it makes a decent background with the sun, don't you agree? ;) I know that the outfit blends in with the snow a little bit, but it's sort of the point here.

Anyway... What do you think? Is this a nice way to style neon/lace? How would you style these two? Let me hear your thoughts! 

And no look is complete without a manicure, even though this time mine is more contrast to it than really a part of it.

This time a very simple one, turquoise nails with gold accents. I used IsaDora nr. 683, Dazzling Ocean, and Maybelline Forever Strong Pro nr. 810, Chic Gold. (This combination made me instantly think of you, Grace! Yes, I still remember your teal/gold obsession :D)

So there you have it, my look today! :) 

I try to be a good blogger and have a new post for you on Thursday, but as we are traveling that day, I can't make a promise. In the meantime, you can join me on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and starting from yesterday, on Pose. Let's keep in touch, lovers! ♥

Have a wonderful (and snow-free!) week, everyone! :)

xoxo

  3. johanna, I can't believe that there's just so much snow there! I am hoping that we're in the clear for spring here, but you never know. Right now it's boiling hot and humid-- ridiculous. Anyway, I am glad to hear you are safe. Driving in the snow is fine, but ice can be scary!!!

    As always, I love your fresh and fun outfits!
