As promised the Marie Chantal collection favourites today. It´s one of my favourites for a long time and although it has very similar elements to previous collections ( a timeless classic is a timeless classic) it had some prints and shapes that really talk to me this year.

One of my favourite dresses for the whole Fall. It´s just so understatedly pretty.

Add knee highs or ribbed tights and you are all set. The shades!

As the summer has been leaning on to Fall here in Helsinki we have not even had time to concentrate on the Fall collections. I´m talking children´s clothing. Have you already earmarked your favourites? I´m not sure we even need anything but if so the trip to Paris at the end of this month will be when I will do my shopping or then in London in November.

I love the powdery colours of the Fall collections. What is lovelier than moss green, mud grey, powder pink and creamy white. I already saw the Bonpoint collection in St Tropez and the fluffy angora sweaters were absolutely delicious with the floral prints and the taupe. And I´m absolutely loving Marie Chantal´s collection ( I will share my favourites from that later). I wish my girls had capsule wardrobes where they would wear uniforms to school and then some lovely pieces for the time off but the reality in Finland is that what they mostly wear to school are pants, leggings or jeans with shirts and cardigans or sweaters. They do wear dresses and skirts to school too but there is not much use for super pretty dresses with Mary Janes ( but obviously a dress or two is necessary for parties, piano recitals and holidays). Actually in Finland if you are out and about in something other than casual and sporty you frequently get asked if you are going to a party ( the silver lining is that you can get your kids from school in your gym kit and no one will raise an eyebrow). The good thing about my girls growing up is that the older they get the more likely it is that a dress stays in better condition and fits longer. The days menu is not printed on it in stains and there is not paint and glue on their cashmere cardigans.

Here are some of my favourites for the Fall from Bonpoint…

That print is so pretty for Fall and I saw the beanie in Troppan and it was the most amazing colour and softest cashmere. I wanted it for myself!

The colours, the rose fabric, the leather boots on little girls legs…
