Summer’s end

Summer is almost officially over and with the falling leaves you can definitely feel that season is changing once again. I spent my fall like Sunday visiting my aunt’s art exhibition at the culture center of Voipaala and picking apples, cherries and plums from the trees of a baroque garden that was hidden behind the main house. A beautiful day to sum up this summer, to turn a new leaf, and head towards new adventures which I will tell more about later this week.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas! I spent mine rather quietly at my childhood home eating a lot of traditional Finnish Christmas food and exchanging a few gifts. I will introduce one of them sometime soon when the weather gets a bit more tolerable.

This outfit is from Sunday night, it’s sort of a tradition here to go out on the Boxing Day and shake off all the Christmas stress – dancing from 9pm to 4am definitely did that for me. Hence the relaxed outfit and comfortable shoes; you need those when you’re not sure how many drinks are going to be poured on you and how much glass there is on the┬ádance floor. This time around I could avoid it all and had an amazing night to remember. Now my aching body remembers it too.

Enjoy the last week of 2010!

Sound of silence

In very short time of its existence, this outfit has become one of my all time favorites: In fact, I’m so infatuated with it that I’ve worn it on several occasions already from going out to getting out of the country. Now it’s finally captured on camera, thanks to the special backyard studio which is providing a peaceful place to shoot pictures when the city above is in full motion. I really like how the strap of the cardigan blends perfectly with the straps of the trousers and then connects again to the strap on the top, creating holy trinity like combination. Almost divine, one could say.
