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”

Is it really strange that I don’t really like celebrating my birthday? I mean, I definitely love being celebrated on the day and I’m never one to pass an opportunity to have some cake, but during the recent years (this is the newly-turned-twenty-three wisdom talking) I’ve skipped the planning, the prepping, the worrying if anybody will come and subsequently, the clean-up of a party and turned to something a lot more special – travel. Since my boyfriend and I only have two months separating our birthdays, then…Continue Reading “Birthdays in Amsterdam”

While being in the process of writing a bachelor thesis of the ethical aspects of fashion blogging and being a blogger in the start of a new season myself, I’ve recently started thinking more about where I buy, what I buy and more importantly, why I buy. I’d like to pride myself in thinking that I’ve started to shop less (maybe because I was saving for this birthday trip to The Netherlands), but I still get the occasional “ooh, this would look so great in…Continue Reading “On Asos and the ethics of fast fashion”

I’m not one to jump on every trend bandwagon as they come around, which is why I’m only now discovering the joys of nineties style dressing. When the Asos sale came around, I gathered the courage to buy my first pair of mom jeans and I haven’t looked back since. Saying that, I’m probably just as excited as the whole office of Vogue to see what’s going to be the next best thing to come out of the last millennium that Instagram will hype about….Continue Reading “Welcome To The Nineties”

I’ve successfully survived one of the most stressful exam periods in my uni life so far and starting to come out of my cave and discover the world of blogging once again. Writing five essays and a mini-thesis in a month can really take any creativity out of you and make you tremble at the sight of another keyboard, but I’ve had a week’s worth of rest (and a haircut, in case you didn’t notice!) and time to think of where this blog is going…Continue Reading “From The Mens Section”

If there’s a time for making promises, improvements and putting together a plan, it’s the beginning of a new year and even though I try to keep from promising too much (putting pressure on myself for not keeping said promises, no thanks!), I do want to try and refine my style this year. I’m talking about finding some perfect basics – much like this woolly coat – to build my wardrobe around and develop a sort of personal style. Hopefully this means more thoroughly considered…Continue Reading “White As Snow”

I”m going to make it look trés effortless and casually pop in that I spent last weekend, seemingly spontaneously, in London. In reality, it took a bit of planning and a whole lot of trying to keep the secret to myself, as a weekend away in the British capital was a birthday present for my mom and she only found out the destination three days before the flight. I bought the tickets in August so you can imagine the amount of self control that went…Continue Reading “Lipstick On Your Collar”

One way or another, snow comes as a surprise every year. One day we’re enjoying the golden leaves of early November, the next day the whole country is knee-deep in snow, noses freezing and cars acting up. However, for the first time since I’ve been responsible for dressing myself, I feel like I’m prepared. Introducing: the winter coat of dreams, covering me with woolly goodness in sub-zero temperatures. Not pictured: the fleecy lining covering this on the inside. Literally, this coat feels like wearing a…Continue Reading “The Coat Of Dreams”

I feel like I’ve gone to a deep sleep sometime in October and woken up mid-December, with Christmas on my mind and a thick blanket of snow covering the country as far as the eye can see. Although I’ve always considered autumn to be my least favourite season, then the first snowy days really made me miss the crisp (snowless) mornings, the somehow cosy colours of fallen leaves and the possibility of just about getting away with wearing a leather jacket.  My next posts will…Continue Reading “Remember Autumn?”

Every year the same scenario happens – come autumn and I’m throwing myself head first into the preppiest tops in my wardrobe, contemplating wearing headbands à la Blair Waldorf again and in general, dread the day I can’t justify “college-dressing” with actually going to university. As this year, when I’ve heavily stocked up on ruffled school girl shirts, while also turning back to old basics like this Bershka top. There’s no headbands in sight just yet, but I do admit that I almost wore this one…Continue Reading “Autumn Plaids”
