Neutral Blazer

Hi sweeties!

How are you today? 

I just started a little project today - which is getting a puzzle (1500 pieces) together, and then on our wall with frames. I already purchased the frames, and have half of the puzzle done, so it's nearly there. I also organized our laundry thoroughly, and rearranged my nail polish stash into two boxes - it didn't fit into one, lol. And besides that, I've taken care of some school stuff, so it's been a busy day. 

What have you all been up to today? ♥

Also, I noticed that I've been lacking a bit on the daily life posts, but I think I'll get to them on weekend, starting with a little "details of our home" kind of post. ;) Remember that you can always suggest ideas for posts, and I will always consider every single one more or less!

Now, before I get back to my puzzle - I hope to get it on the wall tomorrow, if possible - I want to share an outfit that has been waiting for quite a while in my drafts. This was shot about a month ago (yes, I have these stored for many posts to come, as my greatest fear is to run out of material) when wearing ballet flats still felt like a option. Now it's simply too cold!

But nevertheless, here's an outfit with very neutral tones and little girly details. We were going shopping when taking the pictures, hence the parking lot.

If you like this nail art, see more in this post!
Blazer: H&M (thrifted)
Skirt: Oasap
Glitter ballet flats: DIY (see here)
Bracelets: Seppälä, H&M, Nelly.com
Scarf: My mom's old
Bag: Mango

This was - I think - a bit unusual look for me, but it felt nice at the time. And it looked pretty nice, I think combining the super girly skirt with the nude blazer creates this girly but sophisticated look and it would be quite flattering for most body types. The scarf I got from mom is such a gem, and prefect to wear in those not-too-cold-but-that-warm-either days we all experience when the Autumn starts to turn into Winter.

What do you think about this combination? Do you like to wear these toned down shades, or are you more into brights?

Anyway, I'm off now to finish off the puzzle before some sleep - and tomorrow shall be another extremely busy day. Thank God Friday is a day off. And I promise a fun post then, so stay tuned! ♥

Have a lovely week! 

Blog ya later,

xoxo

Johanna

    1. Haha, great minds think alike ;) Puzzles are so fun, and I love how they make brilliant paintings if you just frame them. Of course, you can't redo them, especially if you need to glue them on the frame, but then again, you'll have a little more personal picture on your wall. ♥
