vintage dress summer 2018

Ah, Southern European air, how I’ve missed you! Lisbon has been top of my to-travel list for years (more on that in my next post!) and this little long weekend trip came exactly at the right time – when a very nice vintage dress had found its way to my closet, waiting for the perfect warm day to be worn. Lisbon certainly provided plenty of that! The dress in combination with my Superga trainers and a tourist-friendly new backpack (you can’t live in Amsterdam and…Continue Reading “Vintage in Lisbon”

lindex wrap dress summer 2018 trend

I’ve recently pondered a lot about when we turn from teenagers to adults and whether it’s a big milestone like graduating university, having your first real job or buying a flat or whether it’s a mindset that you gradually ease into, without even making the conscious decision of “adulting”.  Or if it lies in such simple decisions as the dresses we buy. This dress from Lindex for example was supposed to be a mere trend item, a wrap dress like any other on Instagram. Turns…Continue Reading “Adult Dresses and Cat Eye Sunglasses”

Now that I’m positively settled in in Amsterdam, know my way around the big city and have managed a whole week here on my own, it’s time to say a nice big hello to this corner of the internet. Hi, how have you been? For the past month I have mostly been occupied with the admin of moving to another city, changing jobs, as well as wrapping up one of the most stressful semesters I’ve had at uni so far, so apologies for neglecting you…Continue Reading “A Hello From A’Dam”

And just like that, it’s May. Like magic, buds have turned to blossoms, puddles to patches of green and fog to fabulously blue skies, feeling like we’ve skipped a month here or there. Where has the time gone, don’t ask me, but I’m more than happy that my winter coat is firmly in the back of my closet and the trusty leather jacket is in full force. Spring also arrived with a bit of a sore throat and some stress-induced fever, but let’s keep it at…Continue Reading “The New Spring Shoes”


I don’t want to shout about it, but it seems that SPRING IS HERE! Arriving very on time for my birthday on the 5th of April, bringing leather-jacket weather, sunshine for a week and that evening light which makes me so much more productive, when it comes to schoolwork in the evenings (reason no 1 I’ve been a bit absent here). Spring’s also made me dig into the depths of my wardrobe for those amazing culottes that were basically glued to me at the end…Continue Reading “Bits of Spring and A Bit of News”

For a fleeting moment last week it really seemed that spring is here, snow melting and sun shining. However, as I went shopping for a dress to wear to a birthday party last week, I did stumble upon this darling baby blue jumper at H&M, knowing that the weather would give me some more non-spring opportunities to wear it out. Styling wise it really was a no-brainer to pair it with my Farleigh jeans, the it-hat of the season (bar the beret) and that burgundy…Continue Reading “Spring Air”


Truth be told, as much as I’m not a fan of tingling cheeks and numb fingers, this freezing winter is gorgeous. Especially in the frosty sunshine we’ve had in the past week – as ordered to celebrate the Independence Day last weekend. We had planned to go to the countryside for the holidays, but as those plans fell through, I made certain to have an equally outdoorsy day in the city. Skating in the sunshine definitely satisfied my winter sports desires and even though I’m…Continue Reading “Shearling, Baby”


We’ve finally made it through January, quite possible the gloomiest month ever and with the joy of Christmas over, I definitely fell into a heavy hole of a routine. The fact that I’ve worn the same jeans every day this week probably says a lot about my love for the month and the current state of mind and willingness to make an effort. Or it says that I bloody love the Asos Farleigh jeans so much that when I accidentally ripped a hole in my…Continue Reading “The Faces”

You know how you have those favourite places – cafés, book stores, shoe stores, street corners, favourite pink house (just me?) – that seem to be for ever and ever? You know the smell, the cosy feeling of something so familiar, the same friendly faces and it seems almost incomprehensible that one day they might close and vanish into thin air. Because surely, if it’s your favourite place it must be so many other peoples’ too, right? So when I heard that my favourite coffee…Continue Reading “A Day In Tallinn”


Cancel the glitter, seasonal dressing à la Estonia means layering on my thickest jumpers, making the most of my winter boots and road-testing the hat that my boyfriend described as “just like the one Keira Knightley had in Love Actually“. I’ll take any compliment referencing my favourite Christmas movie, thank you very much! Together with the first thick snow of the season and Tartu finally switching its winter lights on, I’m feeling pretty festive! Other than my mind being occupied with all things Christmas (I really…Continue Reading “The One With The Snow”
