Outfit post - Retro-ish

Good rainy Wednesday!
It's a good Wednesday since I got a confirmation that my art work
has been safely delivered to the gallery in NYC where I'll have an
exhibition with another 3 artists starting 16th of August.
I'm already counting the days until I get to leave for NYC for the 1st time
in my life. I have marked down so many places which I want to visit and
I can't wait to document my trip by tons of photos and maybe even some
short videos? What do you guys think about that?

Hope that you're all doing well wherever you are and I would like to thank
to all of you on all the beautiful comments that you left on my posts, I
appreciate them very much!

Outfit post - Weekend

Good Saturday morning everyone!
Seems like this weekend will be a nice and sunny one.
I'm looking forward spending more time outdoors and just
soaking in the sun warmth after a week of practically Fall like weather.

I got to wear this simple white dress yesterday and I had paired it
with one of my favourite sandals which were a present from my mom.
This River Island bag was an impulsive purchase couple of months ago
but I think that I will sell it in some 2nd hand shop so that it can have a new
caring owner :)

I'm just about to start getting ready and then I'm going to head downtown
and enjoy a mommy-daughter time over an ice cream.

Have a great weekend!!

I'm wearing: Dress - Mango, Sandals - gift from my mom, Bag - River Island,
Necklace - Deni design, Sunnies - Ray Ban, Jacket - Miss Sixty, Cuff - HOH1960

Outfit post - Tiger fever

It's mid of the week and I have already exceeded my
limit of stress per week. I had lots of papers to fill, sign, scan
and e-mail + ship my art work to NYC.
When I get to hear back from the gallery on Tuesday that they
have received my art work, I will be super happy and relaxed.

To not think too much about my art work travelling overseas
( with UPS ) I have started to make a list of places I wanna visit during
my stay in New York and one of must see places are Native Americans
museum, Titanic memorial museum, Statue of Liberty, "Carrie's steps",
Central Park, Times square, etc.

It's still chilly in Helsinki, but I'm not completely ready to give
up on the summer clothes.
Today's combination kept me warm but also I didn't feel that I was
wearing too much clothes for July.
I have changed my shoes though, I didn't walk around the city in
high heels, but in my ballerinas. Sometimes it's nice to just be even
taller than I am :D

Have a great day everyone!

P.S. I forgot to mention that my blog is now part of Indiedays inspiration
fashion portal and I'm very happy about this collaboration :)
Nothing changes on my blog, just that now I might have even more readers
on my blog!

Outfit post - White and red

Here's an outfit which I wore yesterday while it was
still semi-cold outside. Today it's SO windy and cold outside that
it feels like Fall! :(
Anyhow, I got to wear my new scarf which I really like a lot and
I think that I will wear it a lot in the future.

One of few things that I bought myself during our holiday in Croatia
were this bag and belt which are croatian design and are made of leather.

I'm right now swamped with the paperwork regarding my exhibition
in NYC. It's getting real close and I'm so excited about it.
I'm shipping my artwork on Wednesday and by then I still have so much
to do, so I better get going :D

I'm wishing you all a great Monday and I hope that the weather is treating
you well and you're still enjoying your summer clothes, unlike some of us :D

Boyfriend jeans - Mango, Tee - Samuji, Jacket - Zara, Bag & belt - Guliver,

Croatia - Last two 10&11 days

Good morning Helsinki!
I came back home yesterday from Croatia and right away had
temperature shock. It was almost 20 degrees less in Helsinki.
It felt weird to have to wear my jacket/ blazers again :P

Last two days in Croatia were bitter-sweet. There's still so much
to look forward to this summer, but it was hard to say byes to
my family and also to leave the sea,sun and beach life behind.

Both last days were naturally mostly spent at the beach. We have
visited Aqua park once again too, did lots of presents/ souvenir shopping,
visited one of my best friends and her little son, ate some more of my
mom's homemade food, got a new haircut, etc.

I forgot to mention in my previous posts, that among all the amazing things
food and drink wise in Croatia, they also have the most mouthwatering
watermelons ever!! I ate every day at least 2 kg a day :D Seriously! :D

All in all it was a great holiday and it makes me so happy to read all of
your comments and so many people wanting to visit Croatia.

Here're the last holiday photos:

                                           The mighty watermelon!! :)

Short visit to Zadar to see my friend

Croatia - Days 6,7,8 & 9

What a great Summer holiday it's been in Croatia!?
The weather has been absolutely amazing, so I got a chance to
enjoy the sun, sea and fresh air to the fullest.

Every day flew by just like that and I wish I could stay here longer.
Luckily there're still two full days of holidays here, so I'll do my
best to use them 100%.
When you live in a country that does not have many sunny days and
for 6 months your surroundings are very dark, cold and snowy, you
start to appreciate and love Summer even more!

So what have I been up to here for the past 4 days? Another round of
mini golf ( I'm getting obsessed ), late evening drinks with friends, ate
tons of ice cream, spent time with the family, did lots of: swimming,
sunbathing, walking and sightseeing, etc.

Yesterday we had lunch at "Dalmatian Village" restaurant and the food
were amazing as usual! As local as it gets in every way. From the restaurant
interior to the menu options.

Now I have to get ready and meet my friend and her little son.
Lots to do in only 48 hours :)

Have a great Thursday everyone!

                                              beach life :)

it's hot in the city! +36°C

Outfit post - Army of me

Good Monday morning everyone!
Here's an outfit which I wore yesterday and will re-wear today :)
Yesterday's morning was reserved for Dispecable me 2 cartoon
and I loved it, it was so sweet, at times bit too scary for my little one
but still really a great family cartoon.

Afternoon was spent in Vodice, short sightseeing, ice cream stop and
I have also visited my friend's own little souvenir shop "Simun".
It's such a small but unique souvenir shop which had so much to offer,
so I ended up buying almost all of the presents for friends and family
back in Finland.

Later on we ended up at our favourite beach for a late evening swim and
that was pretty much it :)
Today it's time to meet some more friends, eat mom's food, go swimming,
play some more mini golf and just enjoy the moment!

Have a great beginning of this week!

I'm wearing: Dress - French Connection, Necklace & ring - HOH1960,
Sandals - Vagabond, Lipstick - Mac
