Flowers and new apartments

Hey, Finland! What kind of summer do you think this is??! It freaking SNOWED yesterday and mid summer is just around the corner! 

Anyway, I haven't really felt like dressing up or doing anything for myself for the past couple of months so my blog updating schedule is dragging quite a bit..

Remember the maxi dress from couple of posts before? Well here's me finally sporting it out. My baby sister finished her school (one year left, woot!) so I wanted to gal up. I can see my sister is starting to have a little sense of style, finally and she has picked her outfit all by herself. So we were the flower princess sisters and stole the whole show! I even saw my elementary school teacher and I can't believe she's STILL THERE (I started school almost 15 years ago!!!)






I didn't wear any lower lashes because I had to attend a graduation party right after my sister's, and I didn't want to freak the people out too much, as they're already freaked out about my lenses every time they see me. I had actually bought another flower dress that I thought I would wear to the other party, but I was way too lazy change outfits. I had also planned to wear more accessories with the maxi dress but I woke up like 40min before the party so I had no time %D


I'm gonna save this outfit for later then~ 


This is the other dress! It's so funny to see myself wearing all these flower dresses as I never thought I would ever wear any. But I'm loving it and the girly feel I get from doing so~ I even bought my first ever Liz Lisa dress!! How about that! 


I was hunting for Rienda and Rady styled items and then I saw a girls selling this LL dress and I had to have it! What do you think? I think I'm going to wear the ribbon in the back~


This Rienda knit dress I bought from Rii and I absolutely LOVE IT. I can't wait to wear it when autumn comes~ It's perfect for the more mature look I'm heading. And I thought the d.i.a. fur belt looked cute with it too ^^

My wardrobe has gained quite a lot of colors in the past couple of months! I've found so many cute new things I'm drowning in them. I haven't really taken much photos of myself but I'll just throw the ones I've uploaded to IG in here, too.


New floral croptop and neon yellow jeans ♥ Summer always makes me crazy for all things neon!


Paradise print romper - Gina Tricot, Striped print shirt - Gina Tricot, Mint zip pants - Only
 Zebra shorts - New Yorker, Camo shorts - New Yorker

All of these I bought on monday, so I haven't even worn them yet. The gal in me just had to have some zebraprint but those were the only ones left in size XL so I have to make them smaller as they fall off of me. I've also seen some cute camoprint codes on gals and I only have a camo jumpsuit, so those were a must have! All the ones in the top were more onee-inspired~


Also what can flower princess Kati be without her new flower sunnies ♥





In other news, me and my boyfriend have been hunting for apartments and went to see a few. Lucky us we got one of the apartments we went to see and now we've been installing laminate flooring in there (not the one on the picture though). I can't wait to move now! I've been packing like mad and I only have next week left as I'm moving on 1.7. and my boyfriend moves in on 1.8.! Also funny thing, I exchanged back to the closer office where I used to work. Now it only takes me 10min to get to work.



I also registered to ask.fm and if you feel like it, go throw me some questions! ^^ It can also be found in the left sidebar!  http://ask.fm/katbatx

Rienda and Rady

I haven't done an inspiration post in a long time, and after reading Mitsu's post about Rady shop staff in Osaka, I knew I had to make this now~!

Lately I've been very inspired by pastels, plain white and simply mature and feminine looks. I haven't tried to dress up very mature or feminine way yet, but I have been eyeing on items I would like to get and simply thinking of outfits that I would like to wear at work and after. It's not like I've got bored of skulls and stuff, but I want to invite colors in my wardrobe and somehow, I feel like I want to graduate from the things that make me look younger that I am. Not that 24 is super old, but somehow I want to look like my age and not always get greeted as "a child" or "youngster".

That's why I want to talk about Rienda and Rady today! I think these two brands are just what I'm looking for and they are a great source of inspiration, as I don't nessessarily need to buy the brand to look as fabulous as the girls, but I can find similar clothing from western shops as they're not as extreme as d.i.a or Ma*rs. I already saw some similar looking items on couple of online stores and I want to show you what I bought some time ago that would suit this style, I think.



I'll show you couple of my favourite coords from Rady's shop staff!



 




pictures from  http://ameblo.jp/rady-staff/

I chose most of the pictures because of the white jeans that are my favourite item this spring. I don't really like wearing skirts, I'm more of a jeans/jeggins person myself so I find these really helpful to work with.


 Favourites from Rienda










 Oh Rienda and your flower prints~ But I like how Rienda girls can also have this mature rockish -look like Murami here, so it's not just flowers and pastels everywhere.



As you can see, this is the complete opposite of what I've been wearing for the past... MANY years and it feels odd to change styles suddenly. But I'm going through a big change in my life and I feel like I need to get rid of something old to make room for the new.




I found this dress from Gina Tricot and it cost about 20€. I fell in love with it the second I saw it and I just have to make it a little shorter so it wont drag on the ground. I hate to be short as I can never find perfectly fitted maxi dresses anywhere! I think I'm going to get a cute belt to wear it with.




I also found these super cute bikinis for the summer! Still have to tone my tummy and legs a little though~

What comes to makeup, I was looking at Rienda girls and how they do theirs. I came across with this pic from their facebook page


So I felt inspired by it and did more "onee-styled" eyemake (or well, that's how I felt) to our Hanami meetup last weekend. The lower lashes are a bit extreme compared to Murami's make, but it's still way different what I usually do. I used less eyeliner and used more dark brown eyeshadow to make the illusion of bigger eyes. What do you think? Could this pass as more "mature"/"big sister" -look? I really want to try out those straight style eyebrows but I'm too used to draw the arch every time, heh.





What are your summer goals? Mine are to get fit AND use more colors, dresses and flower prints in my outfits! :D

さくら ひらひら 舞い降りて落ちて


Hello~ 

May has arrived and so has my new job position AND workplace. It actually came as a huge surprise to me, when my boss announced that I would transfer to another office. I feel silly to admit, that I had a complete meltdown in front of my boss and it's only because I've grown to like few of the people and now I had to suddenly change offices in the middle of my transition. So I spent the next 2 days crying and feeling so very anxious because I felt like I wasn't ready to go or ready to meet new people in such a short time. But as I've been in the new office for a week now, I couldn't really be happier. I will get my own room soon (or actually I'm not so sure now if I have to share a room with someone?) and finally start working properly.



Right! Yesterday I met with my sweet nugguts after a long, looong time! 
 We took a mini trip to Japan aka we went to the Japanese garden in Roihuvuori to see the blossomin cherry trees *insert stupid sakura jokes here*. As it was Mother's Day, the park was full of people so we decided to change the place nearer the water tower as there's more trees and that's where we usually celebrate Hanami here in Finland :) It's actually on the 18th this year (this sunday) and there might be a Gyaru Finland meeting, too. I'm not sure yet if I'm able to go or not. But it would be fun to go and shoot some more pictures~ I really like how these turned out. Ofc they turned out good as I have such amazing models! ;9




It was so windy and cold so we didn't stay too long this time as everyone was wearing dresses and we were just hungry to get some McD's... As usual! But I'm gonna let the pictures speak and I hope you enjoy~
