Picnic with a view

As I have been in Finland for my friends' wedding, I could not spend Mr. B's birthday with him. We still wanted to celebrate and went for a picnic this weekend. I had packed a special basket full of great food and we enjoyed our view across the entire city. It was quite hot though, with no shade at all and lots of bees and horse flies. As I am allergic to their bites, we decided to take the second part of the picnic back to our balcony. 




I wore my new blue and white polka dotted dress together with a cute white belt and felt super pretty in it. It always happens with me and polka dots. Do you have a color or pattern that instantly lets you feel like a million bugs!?



What I wore

Dress: Lindex, Helsinki
Belt: Thrifted; KleiderKreisel
Shades: C&A
Shoes: Deichmann
Necklace & Bag: Thrifted



I was traveling on Thursday, but still wanted to share my Awkward and Awesome moments of the week, so we will have a Sunday edition this time!

  • leaving Helsinki on a plane wearing Jeans and T-Shirt, assuming that it is chilly in Berlin - landing in 25 degrees - I needed to change quickly and pulled out the first skirt I could find - It was my "new" purple skirt.  It matched not only the color of my suitcase, but also my carry-on bag, laptop bag and wallet that I was carrying with me during the day. That mixed with a bright pink shirt really gave me my first, but unintentional color blocking experience. 
  • going for my first swim in a month - felt so stiff. The worst: we had to swim in a slalom around slow grandpa's and at the same time avoid those super fast swimmers that seem to be retired professional athletes. 

  • meeting Emily of The other Emily when traveling through Berlin last week - such a nice blogger, really had an amazing time and got great ideas for the blog and my thesis - Thanks, girl!!
  • celebrating the wedding of my friends H. and M. in Helsinki
  • back at home and being greeted by several packages I have been waiting for for a while already
  • Vacation - just relaxing and not thinking about studies and my thesis for once
Happy Sunday everyone!!

Yes, polka dots really are the best pattern out there. Thx for the compliment!

Anja_AHeartandSoulStory said...

Yeah, I guess my courage got the better of me after half an hour or so. Got really distracted and we finally changed location as I couldn't take those bees any longer!
