Skirt Weather, Finally!

Hey lovelies!

How are you doing today? ♥

Today I was having my speaking skill test on Swedish class, and I have to say, I was a bit terrified about that. Even though I can be very (if not too) articulate in Finnish and English, Swedish isn't a strong point for me. Nevertheless, in Finland you have to know your Swedish as it is a official language... It went well, though. ;)

You know how I've been complaining about the weather for the last month? Not anymore! I take the risk of jinxing it by saying: It's finally Spring in Finland! Yay! That has made me super active (correction: hyper active) and there's so much I wanna post here for you all. ♥

But before I get ahead of myself, here's an outfit from Saturday. We went to spend yet another boys' night with my fiance and his friend - they were watching sports broadcasts, I was trying to study - but I was not going to dress like a boy, no matter what the event. So I put on my flea market find and styled it as follows:

Skirt: Lindex (thrifted)
Top: GinaTricot
Cropped cardigan: H&M
Wedges: SpiritStore
Belt: mom's old
Scarf: Nelly.com
Necklace: gift from mom
Bangle: JC
Pearl bracelet: mom's old
Feather earrings: H&M

I was kinda going for edgy and chic with this, and I was just playing around with the items just because it was warm enough to rock a short skirt... I also noticed that I've learned to love florals this season. So don't be alarmed if there's more of it i the future. ;)

What do you think about the look? Yay or nay?

A few of you were asking/commenting about the pink colour in my hair on the previous post. As you can probably tell, it's not permanent. It's actually this new product from IsaDora (more info here), which I found in that irresistible pink shade. I just had to try it out. The product seems to be limited edition, so I don't know how easy or hard it is to find it. 

Personally I like the mascara a lot, because I've wanted pink dye to my hair for a long time now, but all the wash-off colours usually flake and stain, which I hate. With IsaDora mascara, I did a little experiment. I slept with it on, and also had white shirt on even though I had the dye in my hair. And it didn't stain! Big points for that.

So, I try not to use it all before Summer - unless I manage to get a second mascara - so that I can play a little with my beach look. ;)

Not much more to say this time, I'm super tired now, but I still have another post for you (it'll be up on the Made by Me as soon as possible). So I'll go write that now, and I wanna wish you all a wonderful latter part of the week! ♥

Blog ya later!

xoxo

Johanna

  6. Aurinko!!! Aivan ihania kelejä on ollut (paitsi eilen oli kyllä varsin harmaata) ja vihdoin on päässyt ulkoiluttamaan kevätvaatteita... tuo asu on muuten todella suloinen!

    Niin, ja mullakin on ruotsi kaikista heikoin kieli... englanti ja ranska sujuu ongelmitta, mutta ruotsi ei todellakaan, etenkään nyt kun olen oppinut hollantia, aina kun rupean puhumaan ruotsia vaihdan vahingossa hollantiin :D

    1. Joo, ymmärrän tunteen kun itse vaihdan aina saksaan tai englantiin :DD

    1. Oh, thank you so much. I'd make it permanent, but I believe it wouldn't last too long on my hair - it tends to spit any color but golden blonde out of it :D

  12. Hahaha I just love Swedish! Actually I just told this in my latest post, but our teacher had thought that I'm Finland-Swedish! :DD I have no idea where she got that idea :D

    1. Hehe, I've never ever been thought as Swedish of any kind, based on my talk :D I'm that awkward :D

  13. Your outfit is a lot of layering haha. That's too funny because it's BEEN skirt weather (more like tank top weather) in Fay and this week it was insanely freezing. But it should be back to normal in a couple of days!
