Over the Weekend...

...We had the pleasure of taking part in a Christening. This is what I wore. As this was during Winter and it's a Christian event, I chose a little bit more appropriate/ conservative dress. This dress is what I call a Sunday dress. (Parents appropriate)
Zara Dress, Zara Belt (added), Bracelets from Topshop and Urban A

Peter Pan collar

The fabric has some sequins which makes it look a little bit like sparkling snow
Viikonloppuna ohjelmassa oli ristiäiset. Kun kyseessä on kirkollinen juhla, on parempi valita asuksi jotain pyhävaatteen tyylistä eli konservatiivista. Yllä sunnuntaimekko, Zarasta. Tästä mekosta äitikin tykkää.

Littlelest Things...

...are sometimes the best. Like white tulips on a winter weekend. Given with love.


Pienimmät jutut on usein parhaita. Kuten valkoiset kukat valkoisena talvipäivänä.

A Closer Look...

 ...to my Evelina bag by Mulberry. I've learned to love it even though it's more functional than pretty to my liking. The compliments it's gotten haven't hurt either. I'm such a sucker for other people's praises. Guilty as charged.



Evelina on päivä päivältä mieluisampi. Tykkään siitä, koska se on niin käytännöllinen (lue: tilava).

Style File

What defines your style?
This is a frequently asked question. And it's a hard one. There's no one word for it (or maybe there is but I've never been a girl with just one word - ask me something and I'll explain it to you in min. 5 mins). So, to explain more about my personal style, I thought pictures would tell more than words in this case. One of my (current) personal style icons is Clémence Poésy. 
How would you describe her style? Feminine/ more on the girly side than womenly side, fresh, effortlessy chic, in her own way edgy. Definitely French. LOVES IT !

 




Miten kuvailisit tyyliäsi?
Niinpä niin, todella vaikea kysymys. Sitä on aika vaikea kuvailla yhdellä adjektiivilla. Kuvien kautta se ehkä kuitenkin onnistuu paremmin. Tai siis, tarkemmin sanottuna, tyyli-ikonien avulla kuvailtuna se onnistuu ehkä helpommin. Yksi edellämainittuun kategoriaan kuuluvista henkilöistä on ranskatar Clémence Poésy. Hänen tyylinsä on tyttömäinen ja raikas, omalla tavallaan hyvinkin persoonallinen ja ehdottomasti erittäin ranskalainen. Tykkään!

This weekend I'm listening to...

... my friend's music. She's an amazing singer. Perfect song for this winter wonderland with all the snow. Enjoy your weekend!

Trend: Sneakers

The sneakers are back. Well, if they ever were totally gone - then they're now back. Or maybe I should say they're cool again (but who cares, really). The point being, they're extremely comfortable and now found in all brands, shapes and colors. What's not to love? .. What do you think?

Mitäs tykkäätte tästä lenkkarimuodista? Nyt on taas kaikennäköisiä ja kokoisia tossukoita saatavilla. Isabel Marantit (yllä) kyllä kelpaisivat minulle. Niissä on myös piilotettu kiilakorko, huomasitteko? Marantit tekevät aina sääristä älyttömän kauniinnäköiset.

The Golden Globes


Emma Stone in Lanvin
Sarah Hyland from Modern Family in Dolce & Gabbana

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace

Piper Perabo in Oliver Theyskens/ Theyskens' Theory



Heidi Klum in Calvin Klein

Kristen Wiig

Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli

Seems that cream, white, light taupe and light peach were dominant colors in yesterday's Golden Globes. At least my favorites were the ones in light color pallette. The best differer was Emma Stone in her lovely burgundy gown. Surprisingly edgy! Overall, I was quite dissappointed with the fashion choices. None of the gowns were WOW-factoringly ah-mazing. Maybe we'll see those in the Oscars.

Sales Shopping / Surprise Parka

I'm superbad at sales shopping. I usually try to avoid sales and when I don't, I end up buying all things from the new collections (=the expensive stuff)... So, you can probably understand why I don't go shopping at all during sales. 

Oh, well...That being said... This year I surprised myself. Maybe it was the point that the whole shopping was unintentional, kind of an accident.

The thing is, before New Year's Eve on Friday, I went to have lunch to Kluuvi and afterwards popped by to Filippa K. It all was superunintentional... BUT, I ended up noticing that they had a super cute parka (I have been searching for the perfect one for 1,5 years now) , and they had my size. So I tried it on, and it was perfect. Unfortunately, they couldn't keep it for me - not even a day since it was the only one. So, I asked what kind of return policy they have. "Sorry, we don't have a return policy for sales items." And bam, I was like: "Oh, it's on sale? I'll take it." Ha! So, here it is. I think the pics don't fully show how nice it is with the button and zipper details.



Parka, Filippa K
Parka. Kauan etsitty, koluttu, haettu... nyt löydetty, täydellinen parka. Ja kaiken kukkuraksi se löytyi vähän kuin vahingossa (niin kuin yleensä parhaat asiat löytyvät)- ja kuvitelkaapas, vielä aleista! Tässä se nyt on, ihanien nappien ja vetskarin kanssa.

Bunny Beanie

With a cold winter and strong wind in Helsinki, it's important to keep warm. Here we don't need excuses to buy expensive warm outerwear like in rest of the Europe. We actually DO need to use beanies. Mine is white and cute and my boyfriend calls it a Bunny Beanie. If you see me jumping around the snowy streets of Helsinki you might understand why.

Kuvassa talven kestosuosikkini, joka pitää pääni myös lämpimänä Helsingin tuulisilla ja lumisilla kaduilla: Pupupipo.

Detail of the day

I love sparkly jewelry, this piece is a gift from my mom and it's from Valkoinen Elefantti. These kind of big chunky necklaces upgrade an outfit and they go well with a T-shirt even. The velvet detailing is also perfect, delicate and sweet. Nice.

Kuvassa yksi lempikoruistani, äidiltä lahjaksi saatu, kimalteleva ihanuus. Tätä olen käyttänyt paljon! Se menee täydellisesti niin T-paitojen kuin juhlamekkojenkin kanssa. Tykkään erityisesti korun samettisesta detaljista, joka kiertää ketjun ympärillä.

Next Summer I'll Be Wearing...

... an LWD as a little white dress. Maybe even with embellishments.
Like seen in Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Elie Saab (FAVORITE), Versace and Stella McCartney.



I also want to wear (flowy&light) skirts with blouses/light sweaters/long sleeved tees.

Jil Sander
Jill Stuart

And I want to wear flowy, light things such as these below

DKNY
Jason Wu
Jill Stuart
Oscar de la Renta



With the tribal stuff I'm not so sure... not totally convinced yet. It's just not me. Not that there is anything wrong with the trend.

Like Etro


Ensi kesän ehdottomasti tärkein juttu on LWD eli little white dress. Näitähän on näkynyt jo jonkun verran talven aikana. Itse olen käyttänyt valkoista aina, en koe että se erityisesti olisi mitenkään rohkea väri, vaikka monet sitä arastelevatkin. Päivettyneellä iholla se näyttää upealta! Tämän talven aikana tein vähän täydennystä valkoisten mekkojen kokoelmaani... Niistä lisää myöhemmin.

Yllä muutamia koostekuvia ensi kesän trendeistä.
