Strawberries

1-IMG_6816

I have been a little MIA, because we are still moving house. It has been a working process and now our little kitten joined our family and needs a lot of attention. Outfits and fashion have been a little bit less important even though I got this beautiful walk-in closet now. Sadly, haven't had a lot of time to utilize it, but will make it work. This look that I am posting here today has been on my mind for a while, but I only managed to wear it now. I got the strawberry dress as my first ever 50s inspired reproduction dress several years back and always had a full on strawberry look in mind. This summer, I finally got the matching strawberry wicker bag to the dress and some time back, my mom got those swarovsky crystal earrings for me on during one of her vacations. It's a dream combination.

Off-Shoulder Florals

1-IMG_5561

This Summer, everyone seems to love off-shoulder everything - tops, blouses, dresses, shirts, sweaters etc. I thought that I might skip this trend, but fell head over heels in love with this cute dress with huge pink flowers. The dress is just perfect for a summer day and I wore it non-stop during our vacation in Finland and since then at work and for the first school day of my goddaughter.

I have been pretty busy these past couple of weeks since we returned from our vacation as we are moving house and this outfit has been my savior more than once.

100 years of Finland series - Blue and White outfit

I am in love with this outfit! It's  my go to summer look this year and it feels perfect for our vacation in Finland representing the colors of the flag. I definitely feel some national pride whenit comes to this ountry - my home away from home. My years spent in this beautiful nordic nation has made me almost half a finn and in my heart it sometimes feels like my “real“ home. Have I ever told you how the name of this blog came to be? Well, this little space here was supposed to be my blog during my time abroad and should tell the story and conflict that was going on between my German heart and my ever growing Finnish soul. It felt like my body was divided in these two parts and it still does feel like that even though I have returned to Germany and am settling down with Mr.B.  My soul will forever be altered by the beautiful Finland and I am glad to be back once again.

4th of July look

1-IMG_4954

This look definitely comes a little late, as the 4th July was like 3 weeks ago, but I still wanted to share this look.  My history with America is well known and I still love this country. It holds a special place in my heart and I do feel a little patriotic every July. My time in the USA was special and I love wearing red white and blue for Independence Day. This look is also special as I got this dress at VivienofHolloway during my trip to London in May. The kitty dress is a vintage reproduction style right up my alley with wooden buttons, front pockets, an original 40s cut and this beautiful Hawaiian print. I just had to have it and could see myself buying it in more patterns as well!

The Blues

1-IMG_4542

When it comes to summer, I always tend to gravitate towards blue shades, turquoise aquamarin, navy. It just feels like a true summer color as I associate it with the ocean, a beach and all that just stands for summer. I think one can never have to many summer dresses and this one is a current favourite of mine that works so well with blue and red accessories! We just returned from our trip to Finland and I will continue my 100years of Finland series soon with some fresh photos from that trip.
