Forget your troubles and fly a kite in your custom DIY maxi skirt!

DIY maxi skirt worn as a dress
Wittner Sandals (similar here)
Sportsgirl belt (similar here)
Market/Diva Bracelets (similar here)/ Necklace (similar here and here)

Hi all, I hope everyone has been great. I'm going to keep this post short, because I was abit unhappy and heartbroken today. So when I'm unhappy I tend to turn to music, TV, food and reading....

-Music (The Beatles and playing piano)
-TV (Glee and How I met your Mother)
-Food (Ice cream and Pizza)
-Reading ('One Day' book)
....this is what I did today.

Yesterday, I was in a happier mood though because I was at the beach, beautiful famous Bondi Beach until 7PM and I was flying a kite. Love flying a kite, reminds me of a kid :)
This is my outfit from yesterday, I made this skirt myself (worn as a dress though) and it's so cool to the touch and the print is a favourite of mine.
What do you guys do when you're unhappy?

Let me know, enlighten me...!

xx Natalie

i hit the gym or cook. sometimes even cleaning makes my head clear and makes me feel better. but i won't deny, ice cream and pizza does the trick too. love the arm full of bracelets!

Shybiker said...

Sorry you're blue. I hope the mood passes.

Music helps me a lot; it pulls me out of my funk and into a better place. All kinds of art can do that for us.

Adele said...

Cheer up Natalie...sending big hugs! I love what you've done with your maxi skirt xoxo

Beautiful photos, loving the last one - there's so much freedom in it.

And, although it's totatlly ok to be not ok time to time - you better cheer up! :)


When I'm feeling blue I usually just torture myself listening to sad songs - and it's clearly it's not helping, hah. But I'm just waiting for my mood to change.
Watching great inspiring movie could be a usefull :)

Dominika said...

Well, in my case it depends on the situation. Usually, I find some songs on my iPod I can relate to, I might even cry if it makes me feel better. Or I let the others try to cheer me up :)

Lovely outfit, my dear! I'm so jealous of the good weather you have over there!

xoxo, Dominika.

Pretty outfit! Sorry to hear you were unhappy though. When I'm feeling blue I usually try to distract myself by reading a good book, or I go for a run to clear my head. Hope you feel better!

Teddi said...

natalie you sew very well. you're so lucky you live by the beach. whenever i go to one i feel such calmness & peace. kite flying is one of life's delights. i too find comfort in the beatles (my fave band). i had no idea you could play the piano. ice cream & pizza are also my faves. i like how you showed us a different look with your belt!

Maiken said...

when I'm unhappy I usually buy myself something exclusive or just beautiful. and it helps!
well, sometimes I have to share the reason of my bad mood with my boyfriend or with my dog Elvis and that also helps :)

anyway, your photos made me miss hot summer days and beach so badly! :P

When I'm sad...I eat a lot of chocolate or listen to great music or get dressed and put some make up to feel pretty and happy...
I dance also, hehe.

You can't be sad anymore, it's sunny there and you can go to the beach!!!
I can't :-(
