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”

With all the holiday posts going up here on my blog, you could almost forget the reality of falling leaves, finger-freezing-temperatures and the wailing wind outside. So, with a cup of tea in hand (I hope you have one too), I’m taking a break from 30degree Italy and taking you straight to 10degree Estonia where summer dresses are replaced by sweaters and afternoon Spritz’s with take-away chilli cappuccinos.  Naturally, as it’s got colder, I’ve taken my sweaters out of the closet more and more and…Continue Reading “A Welcome Break”

Throwing it back to sunny Verona and one of my favourite off-the-beaten-path gems of our trip. Away from the tourist-filled old town, the Giusti Gardens provided a welcome break from the sightseeing, with the high cypress trees and slowly dripping fountains giving us some much-needed refuge from the hot sun too. The gardens are hidden from the street and you only find this haven of calm once you’ve passed through an archway of a pretty inexpressive building. They’re also surrounded by high walls on every…Continue Reading “Secret Gardens In Verona”

Buongiorno, Italian posts! I’m well back into my everyday routine here and our picture-perfect getaway to Italy seems like a million miles away (whereas it’s only been a week…). Nothing like those autumnal temperatures and long days at work to welcome a girl back home! However I plan to guide you though that week in Italy and put on a brave travel blogger face, if you’ll bare with me and my holiday pictures.  As this is first and foremost a style blog, then clothes get…Continue Reading “Walks In Bergamo”

I’m not the most patient of girls (an aries, after all), but it turns out that giving up on buying this top and waiting until the sales to buy it might have been worth it after all. Not only did I get it for an unbelievable five euros on the tag (and saved 15, which is like six cappuccinos), but so far it’s proved to be the perfect end-of-summer top. Perfect with jeans for chillier days, which means all the days apparently, but with an…Continue Reading “Sleeves For Days”

I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but I guess that by now we’ve all realised that autumn really isn’t that far. No matter the temperatures outside or the spring-like ruffle tops in stores, September with all its autumnal glory is just around the corner. Quite literally even, as just the other day I did some uni prep and let’s just say I was surprised that school starts next week. What did I do all summer again?  This outfit is my attempt…Continue Reading “Doing The Spring Ruffle Trend in Autumn”

Summers and garden parties go together like strawberries and cream and even though I’m no Alice in Wonderland, I’ve had a few outdoors-y events lined up for the summer. Dressing in this time of year, however, may prove a bit difficult with daytime heat quickly turning into evening chills. So I propose my tried-and-tested outfit – grey on grey with delicate and feminine basics, all the while covering some of this summer’s trends from pleats to slip-everything (buying this top in 2014 was a fashion…Continue Reading “Secret Garden Party”
