Little Black Dress (with a bow)

Heya lovelies,

How are you all? ♥

It's a brand new week starting, and for me, it's quite exciting as it's the first ever Summer vacation from work. Of course I'm studying the whole time, but as our school work seems more tolerable than last year, I think I can make the most of it. ;)

What have you been up to lately, darlings?

I have just spent a lovely weekend with my fiance, he took me out to eat two days in a row, we made pizza, played video games, had some sparkling wine, and enjoyed each other's company.

And what's best, I got through yet another video game (completed it 100%, yay!). I know you might not care about it, but for me, it's an achievement.

Okay, moving on.

Next weekend we're planning on visiting my parents, and I've made something to give them when we go. I made few boxes of macarons for my mom, and I'm sure dad will love some too. I've finally mastered the whole process of making macarons, so I just had to make them. I believe they'll be a lovely gift.

I should write some school stuff after this, so it's once again quite short post - I promise to make longer ones every once in a while, I just need to get a little inspiration. ;)

Anyway, today's outfit is about this pretty dress I ordered, you know how I'm a sucker for anything with bows in it, and when it's something as cute ad girly as this, I couldn't resist it at all! I kept the focus on the dress instead of accessories, and this is how it looked like:

Bow dress: Oasap (You can buy yours here)
Ballet flats: Skopunkten
Feather headband: H&M
Feather ring: JC
Cocktail ring: Gina Tricot

I thought this was a cute little look, not too many details to it, but the bow and the rhinestones of the dress make the look. I couldn't help but fall in love with that dress, and will sure place another order once I get my paycheck this week and see my budget. ;)

What do you think about this look?

The manicure challenge continues with a manicure I kinda ruined because I didn't think it through. Nevertheless, I will show it to you, because the idea was cute despite the not-so-neat outcome.

Manicure challenge

#12, Stripes

The idea came from a manicure that has been featured in many places all over the Internet, with white and navy stripes and little hearts on ring fingers. I wanted to recreate them, but kinda didn't realize (and I'm going to sound so dumb now) that it's foolish to try and make white stripes over the navy polish rather than other way around. So the result was a bit messy, and I wish I would've had the time to make this again - I didn't. I will do this again either after the challenge, or as a favorite design. It depends a bit.

So, there's only one manicure this time, but I'll continue this challenge on the next post. :)

Now, I gotta write a part of a school task, and also answers to your comments on the previous post. 

Hope you'll have a lovely week! ♥

Blog ya later,

xoxo

Johanna
