White Leather Vest

Heya lovelies!

How are you? ♥

The school finally started yesterday, and I've been busy preparing for it. Now that it actually stared, I noticed I will probably have more time for blogging than I did last school year. Yay! My schedule is so much more easy-going than before, that I just can't believe it. And next week, I will also start 2-week vacation from work, so my evenings are free for everything I desire to do.

Gotta love that!

I have so much planned for the evenings without work already, that I believe the two weeks will go very fast. And I get to focus solely on school stuff, which is great for starting this year.

I will try to make the hair extension post during those two weeks, because I will have the time to play with the hair more than on normal daily basis.

Anyway, since I'm already anxious to get to read your blogs, I'll keep the babbling short. I'm sure I will have more to write about now that the lessons started and I see my friends more. ;)

But let's continue to the outfit. This is a look I wore for a movie night a couple of weeks ago, when we were out with friends. I was rocking my sale find (white vest) for the first time - I loved the outfit, but I'm sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, we didn't have the chance to take the photos in daylight.

Faux leather vest: Gina Tricot
Shorts: DIY
Snake print top: Mango
Sandals: SpiritStore
Silver bracelets: H&M
Colorful bracelets: DIY
Skull bracelet: Gina Tricot
Necklace: Gina Tricot
Earrings: Gina Tricot

I don't know about you, but I love so many things about this look - though you would see them better if I had taken the photos with daylight. I think white, turquoise/mint green and silver together look so nice - could wear them more than I do. And that faux leather vest is such a favorite, I just need to figure out a few more ways to wear it. (Maybe with a dress, or jeans...) I'm sure I'll find use to it during Fall.

What are your thoughts about this look?

This time, I'm having three different manicures to show to you. The manicure challenge I'm doing is apparently a great way to learn to do my nails more - I mean, I've learned a thing or two just to create nice manicures (mostly for you to see more than my own pleasure, I must admit). I hope I can provide you inspiring nail art in the future. Now, let's see the manicures for this post.

Manicure challenge

#9 Rainbow nails

There were many ways to do this, but I decided to go for 10 different colored nails. Sorry about my cuticles,  they were extremely dry the time I was doing this manicure.

#10 Gradient nails

I would've probably done this the same way as the previous one (one nail, one color), but it would've been too similar, so I got my makeup sponge and created a beach view to my nails. It was fun to do, and I could do this one again just for the fun of it.

#11 Polka dot nails

I was having a hard time choosing the colors for this, but after deciding to wear the outfit above, I knew I had to make a cute manicure to go with it. I painted my nails with mint, added some white pattern, and glammed it up with silver.

What do you think about the manicures? And which of these is your favorite?

Now, I have to go write some school stuff - and a letter to a friend, but I'll be back next time with another outfit I'm pretty excited about. :)

Hope you'll all have a fabulous week! 

Blog ya later,

xoxo

Johanna

  21. Todella nätit kynnet, niihin kiinnitin heti huomion :D Käytitkö Konadeja tai vastaavia noiden pilkkujen tekemiseen? Näyttää sen verran siistiltä, ettei oo tehty ihan freehandilla, vai olenko väärässä? :)

    Kiva kuulla että koulujutut helpottaa tänä vuonna. Lomakin kuulostaa mahtavalta ! Joko on kovasgti suunnitelmia lomaksi? :)

    Niin ja asu on myös nätti, tykkään sulla vaaleista sävyistä.
