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”

I remember my first time at a secodn hand shop – one of my school friends took me to a shop she’d been to with her mom and we killed some time before her dance lesson. As a result, I bought a slightly cropped red-and-white roll neck jumper, which seemed to be the coolest thing ever, consider I was about 12 and had just spent a considerable amount of my pocket money on something that was my very own. That friend showed me loads more,…Continue Reading “Your Guide To All the Vintage In Tartu”

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!”

(Eestikeelne allpool, nagu ikka!) About a month ago I handed in my BA thesis on the topic of bloggers covering branded content on their blogs and disclosing the posts in proper terms (or not, as I found out). Even though I’m planning a longer post about all things #sponsored, I decided to start introducing my schoolwork here on the blog with a little by-finding of my work – that’s an overview of all the different ways a blogger can make money. While Estonia is regarded as being…Continue Reading “How Bloggers Make Money”

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living in the summer of 2017 and not yet own a midi dress, then may I suggest you steer away from the slinky minis and outdated maxis and give this look a try?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”

antoniuse-moeshow-2017-tartu

Vahel mõtlen, miks kõik tähtsamad kultuuri-, moe- ja blogiüritused Tallinnas toimuvad, aga siis jõuan ikka ja alati sellele järeldusele, et niisama põnevuse pärast ei hakka keegi neid kuskil mujal linnas korraldama ja tegelikult on ka kogu sihtpublik Tallinnas kohe käe-jala juures olemas. See-eest on moesündmuste poolest Tartul eriti hästi läinud, sest vaid paarinädalase vahega toimuvad nii kunstikooli Mood-Performance-Tants kui ka Loomemajanduskeskuse korraldatav Antoniuse moeshow. Mis iseenesest on ka pisut imelik, sest kuipalju Tartus ikka seda fancyt moetarbijat publikut on? Käisin sel aastal mõlemat showd vaatamas,…Continue Reading “Kuidas elab Tartu moe-elu?”

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”
