The Law Ball


Here's what I wore to this year's law ball! My mom shipped my dress over from Finland, which was nice because I didn't have to buy a new one (I am a poor student after all). For my make up I wore golden and different tones of brown on my eyes paired with volumizing but natural-looking fake lashes. To add some glow I also brushed on some bronzer and blush. The lipstick was a peachy pink shade. I curled my hair with a regular curling wand with a diameter/thickness of about 2.5 cm. 

The law ball was fun. It was held in an old theater so the setting was extra fabulous. I have to admit though that I didn't enjoy the ball itself half as much as I did the actual dressing up part. I truly wish I had more events to attend to where I could wear a long dress and heels. 

On Saturday, after the ball, I hosted my birthday party with the help of the guys. We put two tables outside on the porch for beer pong, and brought in one extra couch! Our home was seriously transformed into such a party house. I was surprised that almost everyone could make it and we ended up having about 50 guests in total. The theme of the party was a "slumber party" so everyone had to come in a pyjama! I wore a black jump-in pyjama with white lace and a cheetah printed silk morning robe over it. I also wore one of those eye covers on my head but I lost it at some point of the night. I was so glad the party turned out to be a success and nothing was broken except for a little hole in the wall of our living room.

Hello or as the locals here say "hoi, hoi!" My university life has started out pretty smoothly. I have three lectures and three tutorial meetings per week so there is plenty of time for independent studies and socializing (heh). We have a lot to read but I have Wednesdays and Fridays off from school so there is plenty of time. The people here are nice and I've gotten to know so many awesome people whom I can already call family; my three flatmates L, K, and R (not naming names and all that) in addition to my closest girl friends here. Everyone always asks me how it is living with three guys. To be honest it's not much different from living with girls. I still have to fight for shower shifts and share my hairdryer. Furthermore, I wasn't even the one who established a "cleaning day" and the division of tasks for it. Most importantly though, I simply gained three completely lovable, but annoying-as-hell brothers and a place to call home.
But let's talk some fashion! I love this look because while the skirt creates a girly feel to it, the outfit has some coolness factored into it by the relaxed grey crop tee and the studded denim jacket. Consequently, I found it to be a perfect look for the urban university lifestyle. The thing is, you don't want to be too dressy but still want to add some prep to your student look as you want to be taken seriously. In this way, I always follow my favorite principle of counterbalance: "Down dress" a skirt with a loose tucked in sweater or an ordinary crop tee like I did, add a collared blouse underneath a laid back knit sweater, add a leather jacket to a soft lace dress, and so on. I love playing with antagonistic elements, such as mixing casual with dressy. What's your favorite look for university? Do you like to prep it up or do you like to kick it in casual coolness? Or are you perhaps a hybrid of both like me? 

Billions of kisses,

Hey there! Can you tell that I like white, huh? It was definitely the theme color of the summer. I have waited way too long to post the rest of my traveling pictures but here they are! Better late than never. It's absolutely crazy how I didn't have to edit these at all. Says a lot about the beauty I was surrounded with. My family and two of our friend families rented a house from the amalfi coast for a week but we also visited Positano and Amalfi during our stay. 

My crew since we were babies!

Next posts will be here in Maastricht!

Love and kisses,
