There's a free entry, hint hint. You really don't want to miss this.

WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO

MAY
Poor updating here on the blog lately.. I've spent a lot of time enjoying the company of my lovely friends and family and also visited Stockholm last week for work. Great weather in Sweden by the way! Felt like summer.
Anyway, May is always one of the most interesting and inspiring months for me. All the Finnish fashion events are just around the corner and the weather allows you to dress much lighter. Bare ankles are finally here to stay! For couple of months at least..

Second of May and some serious signs of spring in the air. 
I'm spending my work week in Stockholm and enjoying the warm weather here. Also, I will have to see if a new pair of sunglasses would follow me back to Finland.

I was spotted in my favorite Satu Maaranen creations during Copenhagen Fashion Week. The set that I had borrowed earlier aswell was an easy pick for this kind of event when you want to feel both confident and comfortable.

MACRAME

WHAT I WORE
photo by Vesa Silver

What a shopping fever I'm experiencing at the moment..! But then again I feel like I deserve to pamper myself after being super productive in life and at work the past few months, don't I? My latest  purchase was this Marimekko macrame bag called Tinja that I bought last weekend. Just had to have it.
So looking forward to this spring and summer, - my first full summer vacation and some interesting happenings just around the corner. 
Feeling good.

FINNISH FASHION: BEST OF

ALL IN ONE








photos by Mikko Rasila and Eeva Suutari


From February 2016 to February 2017, best of my monthly Finnish Fashion posts.
 Could not have imagined even in my wildest dreams that the project would turn out to look this good but that is all thanks to Mikko and Eeva, the two people behind their cameras. Love you both.

HIDING

UNDER A NEW FAVORITE



As soon as I saw the first rays of light this spring I started to think about my must haves for the upcoming spring/summer season. You can find some of them in the link on my previous post but some of them are still coming one by one. Either in "pick of the week" posts or as new best buys. Or like this one, as a present from a best friend. 

You might know that I'm not at all a sun worshiper - I like to stay as pale as possible in summertime as well. I haven't come up with any better way to hide from the sun than staying under a huge brim.

BIRTHDAY

NOT JUST A NORMAL FRIDAY
                                                     painting by Gabriella Le Blanc


The day of turning 23.

What an age to enjoy of. Getting closer to 25 (one quarter-life crisis coming right up) but still on the safe ground of being able to blame some things on my young age. I have reached a new state of tranquility during the past year - feeling that there is no need to hurry anywhere or anything. Life will move you to the right direction. 
And still as unsure about what to do "when I grow up" but as I said, handling it way better than before.

A NEW PAIR OF DENIM

WHAT I WORE


photos by Vesa Silver

Helsinki is experiencing some serious spring vibes and that to me always means that it's time to take all my denim back in action. Been wearing double denims, denim jackets and wide blue bootcut jeans for a week now and cannot really get enough of it. So let me introduce you to my latest pair that I got from Dr. Denim; the Mom fit called Nora. 
This girl who always, ALWAYS prefers wide legs has now fallen for a skinnier look. Which is not the most perfect timing since she is not at her skinniest at the moment.

ON MY MIND: PATENT LEATHER COAT

SUNDAY PICK
photo Mango.com

The coat of the season that has already been seen on Pernille Teisbaek and Camille Charriere. 
Since the Muf10 fashion show in Copenhagen I have had my eye on one. Would look good belted or paired with some more patent leather as in the picture.

PRINT ON PRINT

WHAT I WORE

It's that time of the year again when plain monochrome outfits just don't feel right. The crazier the better. I also do have a huge shopping fever but since I know these phases are passing, I'm trying my best to avoid temptations. I do have a wishlist on my mind though, gonna show it to you later.

FINNISH FASHION: MANNISTO

LAST ONE

The 13th and last Finnish Fashion post featuring Mannisto, - a menswear label that was established in 2015 by Julia Männistö, a Colombian-born and Finnish-bred Central Saint Martins graduate. 
The Autumn/Winter collection is her second outing after her graduate collection, which was even praised by a semi-finalist position in the prestigious LVMH contest. The A/W collection 'Los Gatos Locazas' is an interesting mix of feminine silhouettes, sturdy construction site garments and traditional South American textile art.
