In a post in June I listed a few things I’d hope to do this summer and while the weather hasn’t really benefitted beach days, I’m happy to look back on the past few months and say that I’ve ticked off almost all of the things from my summer bucket list, with an unexpected city break to Warsaw thrown in there too! Fair enough, there’s still some of August left and I don’t want to be ~that person~ declaring the premature arrival of autumn, but…Continue Reading “Cosy Corners of Warsaw”

It might be a bit past its shelf life, but I graduated from university this summer and yet, I haven’t shared one word about my graduation outfit on the blog. Which we all know, is the most important about the whole event, right? It seems to me that as the girls get older and classes higher, the outfits get more minimal. Middle school was a party of tulle and princess dresses, high school was about classier pretend-grown-up dresses and university about classic pieces you would…Continue Reading “Summer In The City”

The window to wear summer dresses in this unfortunate Estonian summer is so very tiny, but with a significant collection of summer dresses in my wardrobe, I’ve found that dressing for the office in the summer pretty much turns out the same as dressing for vacation. Even if it means chilly ankles and my leather jacket on me pretty much all day every day, I don’t have the heart to let my summer dresses wait for sunny weekends while I turn to monochrome office wear….Continue Reading “Not Your Average Office Dress”

Instead of rambling on about the weather or my indecisive shopping habits, I wanted to make today’s post a bit different and list a few of the things that I’ve been loving recently. Or what have just made me a bit happier. What are the little things in your everyday lives? 1. Sweet potato. Seriously, I thought chickpeas were the wonderful filler ingredient to any salad or pasta that I didn’t want to put meat in, but since we’ve moved and I’ve had the long-awaited opportunity…Continue Reading “Oh, Honey!”

From one white dress to another! Let me introduce you to this summer’s sweetheart piece – the midi dress! If you’re a girl living in the summer of 2017 and not yet own a midi dress, then may I suggest you steer away from the slinky minis and outdated maxis and give this look a try? Honestly, I’ve been sartorially as afraid of the midi cuts as I’ve been of lilac and baby blue, thinking they’re just something that don’t suit me, but guess what, once…Continue Reading “Midsummer Midi Dresses”

Estonian small towns have a certain charm, that I’m so attracted to lately. Maybe it’s because I’ve changed neighbourhoods in Tartu and now live among the cutest little wooden houses, almost forgetting that I’m a mere ten minutes from the centre. My goal for this summer is to take in as much of the small town charm as possible – starting with visits to the boyfriend’s parents in Pärnu, seeking cute cafés in Haapsalu, maybe hopping on an island and finally having a proper stroll…Continue Reading “Fancy Dress Days”

Is there anything better to light up a rainy day than sequins? Be it winter or summer, they’re the instant perk and with some of my favourite lilacs thrown in there too, I don’t need much else to get in a more cheerful mood. Maybe only finding a vintage straw bag really similar to all the ones I’ve been eagerly saving on Instagram. To let you in on a little “behind the scenes of blogging” here, then on the day I ~actually~ wore this outfit,…Continue Reading “The Lucky Ones”

Can the blossoms maybe just stay here indefinitely? After having a very long-winding and lingering spring, it all seems to disappear a bit too quickly and with spring being my absolute favourite season, I feel like I’m missing the best part of it. Another thing that seems to be a bit of a hit-and-miss is dressing for spring. I guess I’ve become so accustomed to jumpers and jeans that when I actually have the long-awaited opportunity for bare legs and leather jacket I just don’t…Continue Reading “Blossoms For Ever”

What I’ve learnt this week is that the more stressful everyday life gets (can I get a t-h-e-s-i-s?), the more I tend to reach for the ultimate basics to get dressed in the morning, as forever preached by French girls in bestselling books and blockbuster movies. Even if it means wearing only about five percent of my wardrobe and leaving the more interesting pieces to the deeper end of my closet to wait for more summery times (because nothing ever looks great or creative under a…Continue Reading “French Girl Chic”

These pictures are coming to you from a place of blooming pink blossoms and trees in full lush greenery, while the Estonian spring is still having a hard time catching up. More on blooms and petals in my next post, but for now, let’s focus on the ultimate tourist outfit that I think I managed to nail during this trip. The thing is, I’m always famously overpacking whenever I’m travelling and hoping to wear outfits put together head-to-toe, which I never do when I’m back…Continue Reading “Blossoms and Band Shirts”
