I have a habit when it comes to shopping clothes. I try not to buy my outfit pieces in local stores. I have often seen people walking around in my town wearing the same clothes as we do have a very limited number of brands here in my city. I love shopping when I am on holiday and actually have a list of favourite stores in each country that I have frequently visited. I don't spend all my vacation days shopping, no, but I do try to have one propper day of shopping while abroad. I prepare those trips by visiting my favourite shops online and I do bribe Mr.B with a visit at a good restaurant to make up for this waiting time ;)
This summer, we once again visited my home away from home - Finland - and I went to my favourite stores: Lindex, Seppälä, Gina Tricot and others for a bit of summer sale shopping. This beautiful skirt was not on sale at Lindex, but as it had the perfect midi length (even on me!) and was so super flattering even though being a wrap skirt, I just had to have it! I wore it to work and for a afternoon with my family already and got lots of compliments. The wrap style is a little difficult in windy areas though and I might need to put some little stitches at the bottom hem to keep it closed and secure a bit more. Otherwise, I love this length on me with very high heels and let me tell you, these new Mary Janes are definitely on the high side for me. They are ok when it comes to comfort, but the material is just really hard still and I will need a couple of days of walking them in to make them work for longer walks.
