I spent a nice and sunny weekend in Stockholm, hence nothing new from the blogging front. Our initial plan was to visit my relatives and see a Glass Candy show but due to an unfortunate accident, the latter had been canceled. Despite the few throwbacks, we had an excellent time in Sweden celebrating the 1st of May, a.k.a. Valborg’s day, by a bonfire in the local park and dancing the night away at Debaser.
Stockholm is one of those cities which never leaves you cold, especially when it was about 10 degrees warmer than here in Finland. It’s a real pity I didn’t manage to take the weather back with me; instead I took back a few new things that will enrich my summer wardrobe.
Enjoy your weekend!

I picked up this Burfitt waistcoat/gilet from JUS whilst in Stockholm and after trying it on and hearing compliments from both the staff and my traveling companions, I knew my initial instinct about it had been right. I love how it has that 60’s feel yet it looks modern and very “me” when worn with right pieces.
Somehow the gilet was screaming for a white button-up blouse (in the style of Ann Demeulemeester) and since there is a lack of a basic one in my own wardrobe, I borrowed this Roberto Cavalli for H&M men’s shirt I had bought for my boyfriend sometime ago. I paired the top part with my AA lame leggins and the brand new Ann Demeuelemeester heels, and so the look for an all easy Saturday was born. Simple as that!
Enjoy your weekend, lovelies!

I’m back from a style bloggers cruise where we got to spend a few hours shopping in the beautiful but cold Stockholm. The highlights of my trip were hanging out with my stylish colleagues Essi, Nelliina, Laura and Nina, meeting up with the talented Richard from Obscur, visiting the backroom at JUS where we got to see the fall/winter 2010/11 collection of Diana Orving, and shopping at Mrs. H (thanks Oskar and Richard for taking us to my new heaven!) where I scored a perfect pair of Ann Demeulemeester wedge booties on discount (more about those later).
The trip definitely took it’s toll as on Sunday I slept like 12 hours and still feel tired even though it’s almost Tuesday now. Tired as I am, it was all well worth it!
Hi, I’m back! Barcelona was truly wonderful and I will post about it and all the shopping very soon, I promise. Now, however, I’m in Sweden and spent the midsummer here with my aunt and cousin. Today I’m off to Finland and back to the oh so boring normal life. I wish life could just be one big holiday with no obligations such as work. At least I will get two more weeks off when July turns to August.
