Pinks and Blues for Spring


We are currently experiencing the real April weather. One day it is sunny with almost 20 degrees Celcius and the next day we experience minus degrees, snow, hail and all kinds of weird combinations. The first flowers do blossom, but this cold destroys most of them quickly and we do have lots of grey days where only bright colors can chear up the mood. I tend to wear something more colorful during those days and this is one of those looks. This dress is easy to throw on for work or a coffee date with friends and the blue peplum jacket is a definite favourite with all my swing dresses and skirts. This might just turn into one of my staples for 2019. What are your tips for grey days?


What I wore

Dress: Eshakti
Blazer jacket: Collectif
Booties: Deichmann
Tights: Esda
Necklace: gift
Headband: old, Bijou Brigitte
Ring: old, Tchibo
Bag: vintage, thrifted

Transitioning to Spring in red and blue


While the snow has been melting, I can't get enough of the cold. I love dressing up in layers, even though I don't like the minus degrees too much. The early Spring days with warmer temperatures that still call for tights, but allow you to wear dresses and lighter jackets, those are my favourites. I did injure my foot during Autumn and just now can wear most of my shoes again. How I missed my Mary Janes! I do own this style in 6 colours now and love how comfortable they are while giving me just a couple of cms for height (which I really don't need at 6'3'', but a heel gives such a nice look). Once again blue and burgundy works well for me during the colder months and this look has been a staple for work and weekend events as well.


What I wore

Dress: Eshakti custom
Jacket: Primark
Ring: H&M
Scarf: no name
Shoes: Deichmann
Tights: Esda
Watch: Skagen

Goodbye Winter


This Winter has been long, cold and snowy - just like I love it! I want to share a couple of snapshots from the past months of white winter in the Erzgebirge, Germany.

Thank you Winter!!!

Winter to Spring


It's been a minute since I last posted here and it felt ok to be away from blogging for a while. I needed to think about what I want to do with this place for the future. It has been more than 8 years since I started blogging on a regular basis and have been sharing fashion and a little bit of lifestyle here ever since. Change has been on my mind and it needs to come this year. I haven't fully figured it out yet, but I have missed blogging in the meantime and want to do the changes on the go. I hope you come along again on this journey. We took these photos when it was still snowing here and though we just had the official start of Spring, it is still grey and dark most days with the odd warm and sunny day in between. I wore some of my old favourites for this day and felt quite comfortable with these classics. Burgundy red just always works with black and this combination stands for my traditional winter colours. 


What I wore

Rollneck: no name
Skirt & Leggins: Long Tall Sally
Ring, Necklace, Earrings and Ring: Kalevala
Boots: Deichmann

Fashion Archives - New Years Eve look


This year we spent our New Years Eve in Finland in the middle of nowhere in the ice-cold with a snow storm fast approaching. I definitely didn't wear something extremely fancy and therefore have no outfit photos to share, BUT and now this is funny, I forgot to post the look from last year even though I had taken some photos from that night. Still love that look and would wear it all over again would I still own that shirt (RIP). The skirt used to be an 80s bodycon dress with that itchy glitter material, but I had it made into a skirt which has been a staple in my closet ever since. Perfect for the festive season and then one needs something super comfortable with elastic waist that doesn't look like it one bit. I added a similar skirt with sequins to my closet this year and wore it a lot during our Christmas outings. What is your uniform for special occasions where you still want to feel comfortable aka you gotta eat a lot?


What I wore

Skirt: vintage, used to be a dress
Shirt: Primark
Kimono: H&M
Tights: Esda
Necklace and Earrings: Kalevala, gifts
