by Sofia   -   in Random

As promised my answers to the questions from the Classic Style book…

DSC_0834

Always in your fridge

Parmesan cheese, milk or oat milk, Heinz ketchup, dijon mustard, Bonne Maman jam ( the jar makes me happy) and Hellman´s mayonnaise, veggies

Favourite Restaurant and dish you order on the menu

Depends on the country. In Helsinki Strindberg and the Salmon with a poached egg, in New York maybe Cipriani´s and their sublime pasta pesto, in Paris I love Ralph´s but my best memories and favourite dish are still from L´avenue and their pasta arrabbiata ( I can´t count the times I ate it). I love a great pasta any time. And Club 55 in Saint Tropez with great friends, steak tartar, pommes frites, crispy green salad and a cold rosé.

Quick description of your overall look

Well ironed button down shirt, high waisted pants, loafers or white tennis shoes

Can´t cook without

Great olive oil and salt

What you bring home in your suitcase when travelling abroad

Most likely something from a grocery store that has a beautiful package

Skill you dream of mastering

Crocheting, sailing, being the best mom to my girls

Wristwatch

Hermés Cape Cod wrap around

Accessorise

by Sofia   -   in Random

Are you an accessories queen? Some people are really good at accessorising and others… well not so much. I think the key is knowing yourself. And the secret is not overdoing it. Long open hair and big dangly earrings may look very feminine but then adding a scarf to that combination is overdoing it. A wrist tangling with bangles may look very cool with an understated outfit or a summery tunic for the beach but not when paired with statement necklaces. You know what I mean.

I love accessories. I know that through the blog I may seem like the type of person who only strictly uses pearls and studs but not at all. I love the sound of bangles on my wrists or charm bracelets. I love adding a velvet bow on my ponytail or wrapping a silk scarf in my hair putting it on a big bow on my head. I love brooches. Statement earrings are fun and I love wearing hats ( but those two never together!). My friends say that the person I come across from the blog as is far more rigid than who I really am. I love fun but not kitch. I like cute but not kawai cute.

If I wear a silk scarf on my head I wear it with a super simple outfit, like a one piece swimming suit in a single colour or stripes. Or maybe a cashmere pullover or say white t-shirt and sloughy pants with white sneakers. I don´t wear it with a skirt and a silk blouse and high heels. I also love an understatedly accessorised outfit like a sand coloured soft pullover with a dainty necklace, say a tiny Bonpoint white cold & diamond cherry. A lovely cardigan with a golden bow brooch on it. Or a white shirt with just a diamond tennis bracelet. But I also love mixing a little and I might wear that diamond bracelet with a Liberty print fabric bracelet and one made by my children that has little beads on it. I find myself often mixing the ordinary everyday things with something valuable. It has sort of been in my style dna since childhood. It has always drawn my curiosity. My mom does not get it. She thinks it makes my real jewellery look fake but I don´t know why it makes me feel happy.

Äitienpäivänä

by Sofia   -   in Random

Tänä äitienpäivänä lähestyn sitä jotenkin taas uudella tavalla. Meillä päättyy aivan pian kuopuksenkin esikouluvuosi ja kohta meidän kotona asustaa kaksi koululaista. Ihanan pieniä tyttöjä vielä, sellaisia jotka käpertyvät kainaloon ja hyppäävät vauhdilla syliin työpäivän päätteeksi. Mutta toisaalta jo pikku hiljaa aika isoja. Ei enää mitään ihan vauvoja. Kun kuopukselta lähti toissaviikolla ensimmäinen maitohammas, niin äidillä meinasi tulla kyynel silmäkulmaan kun yöllä sujautin tyynyn alle pienen kolikon hampaan tilalle.  Tänä keväänä on ollut myös eskarin viimeinen vanhempainvartti ja viimeinen neuvola. Olen niin sentimentaalinen, että kaikki viimeiset kerrat nostattavat tunteet pinnalle. Meillä ei ole enää ihan pikkulasta.
