Winding Down | Midi Skirt and Polka Dots

Happy Saturday lovelies! Are you having a good weekend?



It's been one loong week full of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating but you know what I mean :] That's sort of my explanation for the lack of posts this week. As many of you know I work in politics and it's been quite a week for American politicians and their staffers. 




When I'm feeling drained, I reach for my ukulele and sing a few songs. It calms me down and helps me to relax. I'm learning how to play "You and I" by Ingrid Michaelson at the moment. Maybe I'll make a video in the future when I get really good so you guys can see my progress :]






What helps you relax?

Top: Forever 21 blouse, H&M cardigan
Bottoms: H&M skirt
Accessories: Kohala ukulele, Vintage pearl earrings, NYX matte lipstick in "Prefect Red"
Shoes: Zara black pumps

  1. Loving the skirt Deborah and the lipstick! I'd love to see you playing some tunes haha. Normally what I do is sit down with a cup of tea, I recently found out that baths make me feel sick and like I have a fever haha..

  2. Dearest Deborah, so sorry that you had such a hard week! But there is nothing to see about it because you look really fresh and pretty and I like your outfit with the dots and red so much <3

    I relax during my daily walk with my lovely husband. Than we talk a lot about the things which happened during the day and I feel as with each step I feel more light and relaxed. It´s also relaxing for me to cook after work and afterwards to sit round the table together with my family and enjoy the dinner. And I like it really lying on my sofa and doing nothing only staring in the air ...

    Wish you a happy and relaxing rest of the weekend!

  11. It's so nice to have a relaxing hobby at the weekend and this sounds like fun :) I would say spending time with family or friends relaxes me the most-especially if it includes a lot of films haha! How cool that you work in politics!

    Love the outfit, especially the skirt. I just love the colour!

  17. I love that song! Also, I'd love to hear you play. I used to play the guitar and tried to pick up the ukelele, but the two were very different. By the way, your outfit is so polished and chic---I would have had no idea that you were working under stress right now.

  23. You work in politics?! That's so cool! I can't imagine ever doing... probably because I have difficulty picking one true side on many of the issues. The ukulele is such a cute instrument. Random fact, I had a teacher in hs whose ancestors or whatever were one of the creaters of the ukulele. Love the skirt-- the color and the shape are too pretty!
