Ruffles and Sequins

Hi lovelies!

And Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates it ♥

How are you doing today? Any fun plans for the rest of the week? 

We're planning on watching sports with a friend - I'm already planning a little menu for Saturday - and maybe even seeing a movie or something. We'll see.

I know it's a cliche to ask on Thanksgiving, but...

What are you thankful for in your life? ♥ 

I'm personally thankful for having so many loving people around me, for having my own place with the man I love - even if the apartment is rented, for being healthy, and for having the chances to do whatever I decide to with my life. For instance. And of course I'm thankful for all the little things in life, every day. I maybe should remember to say it more often. ;)

As we don't quite celebrate Thanksgiving here in Finland, I'm not having a Thanksgiving posts - but instead, I thought I could post pictures from the time I last attended a party. I don't have pictures from the party itself, but from the same weekend, anyways. Maybe the outfit here will give you ideas on what to wear on this week's parties or dates. 

But first, some food pictures. If you haven't noticed yet, I absolutely love food. Any food, nearly. That's one of the reasons I started running again (and if you care, that's going pretty well, even though it's the first week), because even though God has been kind with the genes I have, and I don't tend to gain weight, I can never know when that'll change. So I can't take it for granted, and instead I have to work for it in advance - I'm sure it's much easier this way. Anyway, without more unnecessary blabbering, here's some photos.

Last month, we were invited to celebrate our friend M and her boyfriend's birthday - which was very fun, so thanks once again, sweeties! ♥ And the next day, we had promised to see my friend K for a late lunch. We headed to a restaurant called Amarillo (we have many of those in Finland, and I personally recommend the food there, it's so good for it's reasonable price!). My fiance ordered this massive burger with everything possible in it, whereas us girls decided on something little lighter.

And little lighter means a chicken burrito. A very simple dish with salsa, cheddar, guacamole and fresh salad. This is so, so good, one of my favorites in Amarillo, absolutely.

And we also could not say no to dessert, so K wanted to have this fancy ice cream - seriously, what else could you add on one portion? Any ideas? :D She said she ordered just for the marshmallows, which I completely understand.

But instead of marshmallows, I desired a little different kind of ice cream - or, well, sorbet. With ice cream. and marinated orange slices. And yes, it was as good as it looks.

I probably won't be eating anything as fancy this weekend, but I hope some of you will! :)

Now, what I wore that weekend was trying to be at least somewhat festive. We didn't go to the bar like the rest of the party people, but we had our own after party at my cousin's place. Probably much more casual than what others had, but still we managed to down a great amount of drinks. Oops.

Oh, what the heck, I'm adult - so I'm allowed. :D

Skirt: Oasap
Sequined dress (worn as top): Gina Tricot 
Tights: Sokos
Heels: Boohoo
Leather jacket: H&M
Snood: Gina Tricot
Belt: Mango
Earrings: Pilgrim
Charm bracelet: Thomas Sabo

I personally adored this look, I love every outfit that has this skirt in it. I was having a hard time with my closet trying to find a top that would create the effect I was going for - but then I remembered what I've learned from a blogger I highly appreciate, Tanvi. Every great piece can be worn in more than one way, and many times, a piece that's meant to be a dress, can also be a top, or a skirt. So I dug out this sequined tiger print dress, and wore it as a top. And of course it was so cold at night I had to wear tights, jacket and the snood to keep warm.

So, what are your thoughts about this look? ♥ 

And, if you love the skirt, there are lots of pieces like it at Oasap website. They're having great sales right now, and you can get your soft packages under the Christmas tree from there. (And, you get a free gift with your order!) ;) And for three days, they're having 30% off everything with the code thanks. So go on, shop!

Now, I need to go create some nail art - I'm struck by inspiration - but I'll see you as soon as I can. ;)

Blog ya later,

xoxo

Johanna
