Lace-Detailed Shorts

Heya lovelies!

Happy Friday/Saturady to you all! What are your plans for this weekend? ♥

We're planning to visit petting zoo, see the new Spiderman movie, hang out with friends and enjoy great food as usual. ;) This week I've been learning to make hairdos with my extensions on, so that I can make a decent post for you later on. Also, remember the apartment post? I try to have it here on Sunday evening, or Monday, tops. :)

I'm already kinda waiting for school to start - even though it means I don't have the time for everything I'd want, because I get to go to Spanish lessons again after three years or so. That's very exciting! :)

Anyways, I should be sleeping already as I type this, so I'll keep it kinda short. Okay? ♥

So, without further ado, here's the outfit for today:

Lace-detailed shorts: thrifted, details DIY
Open back top: Cubus
Sandals: SpiritStore
Bag: Mango
Cross earring: JC
Skull bracelet: Gina Tricot
Silver bracelets: Nelly.com
Pearl bracelets: Seppälä
Woven bracelet: DIY
Necklace: Gina Tricot

This outfit was something I wore a while ago, and both the shorts and the top were on for the first time. I've figured out I'm still kind of looking for my "signature" style, but I would love clean cuts with feminine touch, featuring a hint of rock edge whenever possible. That's something I still need to learn how to accomplish. But here is my attempt towards it. I seriously love that top - and so does the man of the house. For obvious reasons.

What are your thoughts for this look? ♥

You know, it's kinda hard to focus on the writing when you have caffeine-free tea and macarons next to your laptop. :D I'm really having difficulties. Would you like to know the recipe I used to create those delicious French cuties at home - and quite successfully, if I may say that? I could make a post. ;)

Anyway, to the nails already? Great.

31-day manicure challenge

#7 Black and white nails

You probably can imagine how many different ideas one gets from black and white theme for the nails. That's many. However, I decided to go towards abstract direction, kinda learning at the same how to handle my Kiss nail art kit. And the outcome was as follows:

Simple, yet fun. Don't you think?

I gotta get some sleep now, so that I can be wide awake in the morning, with my camera, taking pictures to share with you!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!


Blog ya later,

    1. Thanks! I haven't done much with the hair, it just got a bit too red because of the conditioner I use. Currently I'm balancing it out with brown :D You'll see the result soon enough :D
