Ruffled DIY skirt

Hi sweeties!

How has your week started? ♥ 

Sorry for the unnecessary silence that lasted longer than I thought it would - I had a lot of things on my plate, and this is the only one I can put on hold when everything gets crazy. But of course, you have your more or less hectic lives yourselves, I'm sure you get it.

This week, I have/had once again a few deadlines, work, and I'm stressed out as hell because of everything. And on top of that, our building is going through some major plumbing renovation as we speak, so at times, we don't even get water here. *sigh* Oh, well, at least we do have a place to live in, we get to study what we want, and we can get clean water from store if needed. 

So  life's great, no matter how much I complain. :D Okay, enough of that.

How are you all? What are your plans for the week?

I think I have the biggest things already behind me this week, so rest of the week should be quite fun and easy - so long as I get through a couple of writing assignments. 

Now, as for today's outfit - this was something I wore in the first week of school, when it was still warm and sunny. (As you can guess, it's kinda Autumnish now - meaning: rainy, grey, cold, depressing. And no, I don't hate Autumn, I just wish I lived somewhere warmer.)

Skirt: DIY
Top: H&M
Boots: KooKenkä
Necklace: gift from a friend
Earrings: Mom's old
Pearl bracelets: Mom's & Seppälä
Bag: Mango

I was pretty happy about this look, that skirt is my pride and joy at the moment - it's one of the coolest pieces I've sewn so far. (In my opinion, you're free to feel otherwise, of course.) I tried to create another girly and classy look, but it's up to you whether I succeeded.

So, that being said, what do you think?

Manicure challenge

#18 Half-moon nails

Yet another nail trend I hadn't ever tried. I wanted to do a very simple one with black and nude polish. And I tried to make them matte, but to be honest, I'm not feeling them. I mean, they looked all nice live, but they pictured awfully. :P

Yep. That's what I have nailwise for you this time. Sorry that it's not my best performance. :D Maybe this will deserve one recreation, though, when I have more time and patience :D

Anyway, that's all I have for today, do read the previous posts if you still haven't, and leave me your thoughts! 

Or you can also....

  6. I've seen those textured manis for a while now, but I dunno if I want in on the trend. It's such a bugger taking them off! But they sure are pretty, just like your skirt, Johanna!!!
    ps. I got your letter! I'll be writing a reply soon :)

    1. Hehe, I should imagine so... But I'm a sucker for glitter - and we know how hard that is to take off - so I'm getting very patient with removing nail art. :D I'm so happy you got the letter, can't wait to receive yours! ♥
