Oh Land - White Nights 
(because the nights really are white and oh-so-magical)


No, the post is not about my new hair-colour, although the title might suggest that. It's about one of my skirts that I bought last summer. I really like the print and the colours on it, but I didn't really wear it a lot, so I decided to give it a new life for this summer. A pair of scissors and a sewing machine came to my help and I now have a lovely fishtail skirt. I love how it flows with wind! I found the DIY instruction here and it's really simple, if any of you is thinking of giving one of their skirts a new life also. Some other ways how I've worn  the skirt before can be found here, here and here
Kuigi pealkirja järgi võiks arvata, et olen juba juuksed ära värvinud, siis siiski mitte. Pealkiri vihjab hoopis ühele mu seelikule, mille ma endale eelmisel suvel ostsin. Mulle väga meeldib selle muster ja värv, aga samas, ma ei ole seda üldse palju kandnud. Otsustasin selleks suveks seelikule uue elu anda ja tegin selle eest lühemaks. Nüüd see on nii mõnusalt hõljuv ja lendlev tuule käes! DIY õpetuse leidsin siit, kui keegi soovib endale samasugust teha. "Enne" pildid võite leida siit, siit või siit

  3. Piia, this skirt is absolutely amazing! I'm so impressed you have "upgraded" it yourself. Don't know how it was looking before (maybe you should paste a picture: before and after? :) ) but now it is one of my favorites; shorter on a front and longer at the back. Big respect! And you look lovely by the way! Many kisses! xxx
