We had visited Paris and Disneyland 2016 and we both loved it there! Last time we only had one day at Disneyland and the Studios and both felt that this was not enough time to see everything. Also, the two parks had been under major constructions during that visit and a lot of attractions had been closed for renovations. For our 7th anniversary (and because we are skipping the summer vacation due to our house renovations) we booked a 5 day trip to Paris and this time booked a 3-day pass for both parks, which gave us plenty of time to enjoy all the rides that we loved and the ones we hadn't tried before. I had picked a couple of my favourite outfits especially for this trip and here is my first look. This black and white Eshakti dress screams Paris to me and it is made of such a comfortable material that is fuss-free and since then has been one of my go-to work outfits. My trusty denim jacket is perfect for all the looks and worked so well during this warm and sunny trip with cold and windy mornings where layers had been key. The Minnie Mouse bag by Primark had been such an amazing accessory and I got several people asking about it.

One place I really wanted to visit was Adventureland and all its' attractions as they had been closed off in 2016. We loved all the roller coasters (Big Thunder Mountain was awesome!!), but I really enjoyed the Pirates of the Caribbean and La Cabane des Robinson. We did try to see all the things still on our list, but had to miss out on some re-rides as the time was just not enough. I was especially sad about Le Carrousel de Lancelot, Dumbo the Flying Elephant and the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups (which was closed this time). Due to my injured back, I had to stay away from a lot of the 360° roller coasters, but I enjoyed every second of our time in Disneyland!! Stay tuned for more looks and snapshots from our stay in Paris.

Life in a small town

1-IMG_3537

Last summer, we moved to the small city that I have been working in for the past years. It's been a challenge to adjust, but one thing that I am not sorry about is the amount of nature that we are surrounded with. Our dream has always been a house in Finland, but we have decided to stay in Germany and make this our forever home. It is great to have forest and mountains similar to finnish nature to make life just a bit more green. These photos have been taken on a walk around our new home town. I wore my favourite floor-length dress and cleaned the grounds with it :D Being fashionable in a place like this has its' downsides! Definitely need to think of that before ordering a new dress in that length. 
Has anyone else had this happen to them that they felt their style changed with their move to a new home/house? I do feel like that is currently happening to me. I still love me a good dress, but it has to be more fuss-free, with less poof and more practicality. I do like intricate designs, but they have to be easy to work in and I need to be able to put them on alone. Now that we moved, Mr.B leaves the house one hour earlier and I often dress only after he has left. If I can't zip it up myself, it's no good for my every day life anymore. I started loving wrap dresses for this exact reason!!

My new home - living in a small town has its' advantages. Nature is not far and it feels like living more connected in that sense. Otherwise it has its' downsides as well as we live more secluded from friends and family as well. We do need to make more of an efford to see people now, but it is of course worth it.

Summer ready

1-IMG_3778

We had the most summery Spring these past two months, but right on time for the 21st of June, midsummer, the longest day of the year and the official start of Summer, we had the frost come back. From a hot 30°C to an icecold 8°C in one night. Brrr ..... Still trying to wear all my lovely Summer and Spring looks, right now just adding thicker tights once again. The outfit of this post is acually from the warmer days and wearing that denim jacket was way too hot. Now, it's too cold and I am back to leather jackets. June is our April this year, which I don't mind as I really like the cooler temperatures, but it is not nice for nature to be so out of tune and our plants definitely show that.
Back to the outfit. I am wearing my dress-turned skirt favourite summer piece in combination with this black and floral shirt, which has been a staple in the past years. I added red accessories to the look. The bag is a Chloe lookalike and a really close dupe, the shoes are some of my favourites, but I sadly had to retire them after this day, as the strap on one of them broke. Need to replace them. These past weeks have been full of work and planning our kitchen renovations, but I hope to post outfits more regularly now during the Summer months. I have a couple of posts planned from our recent Paris/Disneyland trip and hope to show some of our house renovation as well. When it is all finished, I might do some house/room tours with before and after. So stay tuned!

Florals and Stripes, best print remix

1-IMG_2478

The combination of stripes and floral prints are some of my favourite remixes and this look is a pretty good example. This skirt has been a pretty bold choice and I am glad that I got it a couple of years back. I added the cardigan and floral blouse in mint and my new bast bag. I used to be a bit more coy with the print mixing, but it feels good to be a bit more bold with my choices.

Floral Berries

1-IMG_2449

I am in the mood for all things floral right now! That's what Spring usually does to me, it's nothing ground-breaking, but florals are in style each Spring so why not embrace it!? I am starting small with this skirt that has a cool poppy print, which fades away close to the waistline. I added a simple knit top, my favourite denim jacket and a strawberry wicker bag to the outfit. It feels good to dress for Spring and this look has been one favourite so far.
