Sunny Day in Paris


On our first day in Paris we were blessed with beautiful weather and decided to visit all the sights that we were not able see during the time in 2016 when Paris was suffering from a high tide and on-going rain storms. On our first stop, we visited the Jardin du Luxembourg. What a beautiful place.





Afterwards we took a stroll through the 6th arrondisement, past the University Sorbonne towards the Ile de la cité. 









We visited Notre Dame and walked along the river Seine. Those little cubicles, where all the artists sell their art work, are just wonderful to look at. When you visit Paris, those spots are a must see.

Paris 2018 - Disneyland Day II


Paris was beautiful this year and our second day at Disneyland was full of sunshine and hot temperatures. A thunder storm was coming though and the air was really humid. I wore this floral dress and was quite the centre of attention while walking through the park as this print is actually quite loud when you don't wear it with a jacket. It's fully lined and therefore not the lightest dress, quite heavy and I did get just a little hot wearing it. Still loved the look and had so much fun looking girly in Disneyland!


What I wore

Jacket, Belt & Bag: Primark
Dress: Eshakti
Shoes: Deichmann
Tights: Esda
Necklace: heirloom
Watch: Skagen


We had so much fun at all the attractions that had been closed during our 2016 visit. My personal favourite was Casey Jr. Mr B. was quite surprised as he had thought it to be a little kids attraction. It was so much fun!






Sadly we got caught in the storm and got soaked while waiting in line at the Carrousel de Lancelot. We did go back to the hotel then and missed out on my favourite - Dumbo the Flying Elephant. The Mad Hatter Tea Cups were closed off during our stay and I was really sad about missing out on these, but we finally crossed all other rides off our lists. Of course, we want to come back to visit Disneyland one day again, but right now, I'd rather visit another country in rather than coming back to Paris in the near future. Well, Tokyo has got a great Disneyland ... :)

The perfect Disneyland dress I found too late



This is probably my favourite dress in my current collection of Eshakti dresses and I found it just a bit late for our trip to Disneyland in Spring. The red is such a beautiful rich color and works really well with my hair color. The dots are actually stitched on and not printed which made me hope for longevity. We will see about that as some ends seem to be just a tad loose. Other than that the fabric seems a little bit wrinkled because of the sewing, which then give some kind of structured look to the loose skirt fabric. I actually don't mind it and don't need to iron it as much for this reason. This dress is so nice in quality even though it is a bit tricky to wash with the white trim on the sash. I still love it and maybe we need to go to Disneyland once again now to take it for a spin there :) ! Wore this outfit for my sister's Disney-themed Birthday party, so it did get to see some Disney already.



What I wore

Dress: Eshakti
Shoes: Deichmann
Bag: gift, Primark
Bracelet: Bijou Brigitte
Necklace: heirloom



Cute little photo bomber! Sisu, our cat, has gotten so big. She is no kitten any longer. But still so cute.

Marine Chic


Twice a year is the biggest time for sales and I do try to stay away from them as best I can. Still, the promotion emails show up and one gets tempted to buy new things. This happens especially with me and vintage reproduction brands. Most of them are quite affordable, but I do like the UK-based brands Vivien of Holloway and Collectif. They produce in the UK and the products seem good quality and well made. They are pricey though and with shipping, it adds up. I often shop only during the sales and this year I got lucky with this amazing peplum blazer. I got my great winter coat and lots of cardigans as wardrobe staples, but I was missing a fitted blazer to wear with all my dresses. Here, I paired it with one of my dresses from Eshakti, my other sale weakness. It seems that every dress I currently wear comes from that brand. Their deals are great and I get tempted quite often. This black dress for example is a great staple to have. I might have to get it in another color combination soon. Wore this look for a family birthday lunch and felt well dressed.



What I wore

Dress: Eshakti
Jacket: Collectif
Necklace: Thomas Sabo
Shoes: Deichmann
Tights: Esda
Bag: heirloom
