Almost Maxi Dress

Hello darlings,

How are you all? ♥

As promised, here is the "proper" post. I still hope you would read the previous post, and take the poll on top of the right-hand side of this page. I would like to develop this blog into a direction that is what you want. Because even though I write for my own fun, I would like to make content that's interesting to you. And more versatile than what I have already.

So please, take time to answer the little question on the right. Thank you! ♥ 

I've spent today preparing for an exam I have on Wednesday, I have 400 pages (total) to read for it, and the subject in matter is project management. Not my biggest turn-on, but it's mandatory to study, so... No choice there, lol.

Before work, I was taking a little break from studying to write this post, having a cup of chocolate cappuccino and doing some household chores. It got me thinking that sometimes it would be convenient to live with the parents while I'm still studying, it would take lot of pressure off my shoulders - I wouldn't have to work at the same time, pay all the bills, take care of all household things... Meaning that I would have so much more time on my hands.

Or maybe I just need to learn how to organize more, I don't know.

Anyone else out there having way too little time on their hands?

Anyways, today I wanted to show you pictures of one of my few (and I really mean few) maxi dresses. I'm so short they're not very flattering on me, but I was giving this a try anyways - and before you say it, no, it's not really a maxi, but it is as maxi as I get with my dresses. I really liked this outfit for a sunny, hot day - like the one we were having while shooting these. I hope you'll enjoy the pictures as much as I do. Hehe.

Outfit of the day

Awkward foot pose. Idk why I crossed my legs for this, it looks weird. Lol.

Dress: second-hand from mom's friend (it's really a skirt, though.)
Belt: Seppälä
Sandals: SpiritStore
Bracelets: Nelly.com
Dreamcatcher necklace: Seppälä
Handbag: Mango

I really liked this outfit a lot, the shades of green and blue are really something I think I would love to wear more. The dress is an old skirt that was too long for me, which I fixed by attaching straps, and wearing it with a belt whenever I put it on. It's not a perfect fit (for obvious reasons) but I do love it. And I think it looks very pretty in pictures.

What do you all think about this look? Let me know!

31-day manicure challenge

#15, delicate print

The ones who've been reading my blog for a while might guess I was happy to do this challenge, because it meant using lace somewhere. And you know me, I love lace! Of course I also had to mix it with pink. 

And here's what came up:

#16, Tribal print

Again a manicure I probably wouldn't have done without the challenge. I created a ombre base, and doodled some print over it. Pretty cool for a first try, right?

Now, what do you think? Are these any nice?

I hope each and every one of you will have a fantastic week! Next time, I'll be posting (finally) the hair extension post, so if there's any question about the matter, fire away. I'll answer them all in the next post.

Have a fantastic week! ♥

Blog ya later,

xoxo
