So, we are back from our Summer holiday in Finland and it's time to go back to work. I brought back a couple of nice pieces for my closet from up north and incorporated them into my first outfit look back home. The skirt is actually a wrap skirt and I liked it so much in store. Even though wrap skirts can be quite tricky with wind, I love the look of the mixed up stripes. I also added my flea market find to the outfit - my new handbag that is vintage and has been on constant rotation since I bought it. It's just the right size to fit all in it and gives every outfit this summery beach feeling. Great for memories!

One of my favourite moments of this year so far has been the trip to Paris with Mr.B, a trip that I have been dreaming of since 7th grade when I first started French classes and this year it finally became true. I have shown you some of the highlights of that trip already, but the best thing for a girl was probably Disneyland! I have visited Disneyland in Anaheim, California 13 years ago and ever since knew that I would be back in Disneyland one day. This day was awesome and I can't describe all the emotions that I felt, but want to show you through some (ok, a lot of) pictures.
A must - the Mad Hatter Tea cups! Had to go there first!
Dumbo the flying Elephant - just awesome and saved it for last!!
The Carousel of Lancelot looked stunning, but the ride was a little short. Glad I went on another ride when we visited the Eiffel Tower.
The parade was great! Seeing all the characters, but I did miss Daisy Duck and Belle and all the characters of Beauty and the Beast. It is a story situated in a French village after all and I was sad that Frozen got so much attention, but my favourite movie of all time was really neglected in Paris. Hope it will change during the 25th anniversary celebrations next year.
A great place - Alice in Wonderland labyrinth!
The light show at night - Disney Dreams - was amazing and a great finish to our day at Disneyland!
We also visited Disney Studios that day and it was great for Mr.B as most rollercoasters at Disneyland were closed for renovations, but the Disney Studios still have a couple of great ones! I would recommend visiting the Studios at another day though, to have more time for each park.
Mr.B loved this one, I didn't go. I don't like 360° rollercoasters. This also has a twist.
And last but not least, Mr.B's favourite - crashing down with an elevator is not really my thing as we live on the 7th floor and take one every day, but he really liked this one and said it was his favourite of all.
It was a great day, but for the next visit, I want an entire weekend for both parks to have more time for all the great rides and actually hang out for a bit. I would also love to visit Disneyland in Tokio as they have a big part for Beauty and the Beast. Maybe one day! Are you a big Disneyland fan or do you think it is childish or overrated?

A little treasure that I brought back from Paris. Ladurée is such a girly place and these macaron key rings are just so adorable and fit perfectly with my Michael Kors Bedford bag. I picked the dark berries color as it can also be used with all my other bags.
One can never go wrong with a good cheese cake
What a delicious drink with egg liquor, strawberries and yogurth!
Little presents I bought myself while in Paris - the Chanel lipstick "Pirate" was my purchase at the Chanel flagship store and that Marc Jacobs beauty was half price at Sephora during the summer sale!
