Checkers and tulips

Men's shirt with a tulip skirt

Men's shirt with a tulip skirt

A funny thing about this outfit: only the shoes were bought by me. The rest is donations and borrowed. This sort of mix and match is very dear to me, I get to use my imagination.

I wore the outfit to a job interview on Tuesday and while my mother thinks the skirt is too short, I thought it was doable with the otherwise prim look. The shirt is actually my brother's, he was kind enough to borrow it to me when I couldn't find anything to wear.

The skirt I got from Trang. Orange isn't really my colour but combined with other colours it's not too bad. I think I pulled it off rather nicely.

This week my life has been all about reading and stuffing my face with candy. Okay, I did have the job interview on Tuesday, and I'm quite hopeful about it, but other than that, losing my public transportation card has been the most remarkable event this week. Luckily that's about to change because today I'll be going to town to get a new transportation card, and to buy the new expansion pack for the Sims 3... and I'll be meeting Maria for a coffee too! Tomorrow I get to spend the whole day with my littlest brother and it should be fun because he isn't sick this time. A trip to the library is in order perhaps... and the playground too, depending on the weather.

How has your week been?

  5. Pretty look <3


  6. I really love this look! You're very creative, combining items from different wardrobes! I actually really love this skirt on you (especially with that shirt) and in my opinion, it's not too short either.
    Hope you get that job girl:)Shame for the card, but shit happens, right:) have fun with your friend, brother and sims!

    1. Thank you so much! I'm happy to let you know that I did get the job, I guess my outfit was colourful enough to make me stand out from all the other candidates :D

  7. Nätti asu, etenkin tuo hame on kovin söpö :) ♥

  8. Great blog! Love you style! Cute outfit!
    Maybe you want to follow each other on gfc and bloglovin? Check my blog and let me know! I would love it!

  9. Nice outfit and the colour of the skirt brings some spring feelings! I think it´s not too short, especiall with in combination with the rest of your clothes.
    I read a bit through your blog, it´s always nice to find Blogs from Finland with English texts, I´m just too lazy going through texts in Finnish. ;)
    I came to Finland as an Au-pair and stayed for my studies (and no work and boyfriend). I think in the Netherlands you could easily get a place to study as well. I know many friends who study there (in Dutch or English). Maybe you can find your way back there... :)

    1. Thank you so much!

      And I'm glad you like my blog, it's interesting to see how people from all kinds of different backgrounds end up here... One of the reasons I like to write in English, even if it makes my blog-niche harder to define hahah :D

      I did consider studying in NL but there they have tuition fees and in this current economical situation all over Europe, I thought it would be easier to study in Finland (where it's free) and it's definitely easier to find a job here... In NL they aren't currently too keen on hiring foreigners (even if they know the language) for the cashiering jobs etc. Perhaps when I have my degree I can go back there. Or then I'll do an exchange year in NL, although by that time my fiancé will most probably be living in Finland :)

  10. Très jolie jupe !
