Today I visited my parents for a formal dinner to celebrate the Finnish Independence Day. We were looking over photos from last summer’s Norway trip and doing what most Finns do every 6th of December, evaluating the evening gowns of the guests entering the president’s Independence Day ball and toasting to the celebration. It seems that burgundy was the hit color amongst the guests this year. I wanted to wear something comfortable so I grabbed something I haven’t worn in ages; a puffy sleeve shirt bought from California two years ago and high waisted jeans that have been waiting to get re-colored for a year now (yep, I’m lazy…). Since the high waisted jeans need something extra to fill the extra length, I tied the twofold second hand belt around my waist.
Puffy sleeve shirt: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Second hand
Now I’m off to the evenings festivities which consist of going to the local indie club (no surprise there). Happy Independence Day to my fellow Finns and others, enjoy your weekend!
