Have you already remembered to enter my birthday giveaway?
How are you all doing this week? Did you have a fabulous weekend? :)
I had - or well, if not fabulous, then hilarious at least. Like mentioned on the previous post, we had a little birthday bash in my man's honor. I even baked a fun cake (like you might have seen if you're on Instagram)! I'll be posting a few words on that later, but today, I'll show you little pieces from my future father-in-law's retirement party (meaning, flowers and my outfit, as I wanna protect his privacy enough to not show all the gifts and so on...)
Anyway, the party was at the end of May, and we had to start driving there very early in the morning, as it was planned the way that the place where father-in-law had worked served coffee and cake for everyone at 9am. So, with just 4 hours of sleep, off we were. It was a cute little event, and from there, we headed to my fiance's parent's home. Before we had this sweet family dinner, I helped out with the flowers given by people congratulating.
I simply couldn't resist taking a few shots of the gorgeous flowers around the house. Is it just me, or do they really make you feel happy as well?
This metallic rose was just awesome, it was made especially for my fiance's father, so it's unique. And just look how beautiful it is! (Also, you simply can't manage to kill this one...)
As mentioned, I didn't take too many photos otherwise, as there were many people I don't know that well, and also, because my future mother-in-law needed my help with quite a few things that day (setting the table, arranging flowers and gifts, carrying stuff from one floor to another...). So I had to forget photographing and focus on my family instead.
Yes, I feel they're my family even though I'm not officially "married to them" yet.
As the party was mostly within the family, and I had to travel, I tried to choose a simple and practical look, while still being a bit festive. (Apparently, I was more festive than others after all... Oh well.) So here's my choice for the day.
Outfit of the day
Dress: Gina Tricot
Feather headband: H&M
Earrings: Gina Tricot
Bracelet: Gina Tricot
Cocktail ring: Gina Tricot
I really wanted to wear a blazer, so I built the rest of the outfit around it. Very basic but neat, and in my opinion, cute enough to wear at a party. The shoes are something I haven't worn in ages, but for this look I dug them out from their box and rocked them. ;)
What do you think about this outfit?
The nails weren't exactly planned for this outfit, but they were girly and glittery, so they were good enough. And here, you can see them:
Manicure of the day
The base was actually turquoise, but it came out green in every picture. :D Not that I'm complaining, it's pretty this way. The glittery polish is from OPI Muppet collection, and I'm super happy I bought it. It looks great with so many manicures! (I'm thinking of buying more OPI products after my next paycheck, as I get a bit of more money than usual ;))
What kind of manicures have you done recently? Share with me! :)
Now, I gotta go get ready for work, but I'll check in later and read your blogs - I'm in need of inspiration!
Have a lovely week, everyone!
