Can we talk about Fall

by Sofia   -   in Random

Can we just talk about how lovely it is that the weather is getting cooler and we can pack away our summer dresses? I know so many summer lovers, great friends of mine, who will not like this post. But hey I don´t discriminate against your thirst for tanning and ice-coffee. Fine, I love that too! But Fall! Pumpkins, apple pies, rain hitting hard against our windows. Taking out all your cashmere sweaters and socks. Fall fashion! In Finland winter dressing is not always so lovely as it gets really cold and you have to actually bundle up to save yourself from freezing. But Fall. The season of the best outfits. You can wear your lovely knits and a pretty beanies but don´t necessarily need a coat yet. I have plenty of timeless clothes to choose from so I don´t shop for a whole new wardrobe every season, but I often find something that I love to brighten up my wardrobe. This year I found a knitted skirt in a Chanel style boucle ´ish fabric in pale pink, white and navy. I will wear it with heavier denier tights in navy and my navy ankle booties as soon as it gets cooler. Perhaps with a pale pink cashmere jumper and a navy beanie. I like how it´s very feminine but also quite casual and sporty. And the most comfortable skirt ever. Other than that skirt, and the floral dress I bought earlier, I think this year I will mostly shop in my own closet.

Do you always buy plenty of new clothes and new outfits or do you collect a more timeless wardrobe little by little?

Mask Up

by Sofia   -   in Random

I was asked by a reader to write about face masks. Obviously I don´t have any more knowledge about them than anyone reading online. I´m not an expert and this post is not taking any stance in if they are useful or not as there seems to be a debate. To me it does seem like common sense to at least try. In Finland we have a recommendation to use a mask in public places where you can not easily social distance from others or have to stay in the proximity to strangers for prolonged periods. Public transportation and busy grocery stores were examples. The recommendation is for kids over the age of 15 as it was feared that younger people might not know how to use the masks correctly and thus cause themselves more harm. My kids come home from school in a tram and even if they are under 15 we have taught them how to use their masks correctly and to wear them if there are plenty of others in the tram with them. Usually there are not at that time of day.

On my wish list

by Sofia   -   in Shopping

Voi miten ihanan laukun löysinkään itselleni. Siis haaveiden listalle odottamaan tarvetta uudelle laukulle. Kultaiset nimikirjaimet viimeistelisivät tämän ihanuuden joka sopisi loistavasti käsipuoleeni kun lähden kaupungille. Eikö vain? Hankitko vain merkkilaukkuja vai valitsetko asusteet ennemmin ulkonäön perusteella? Sen mukaan mikä sopii omaan tyyliisi parhaiten.

I really don´t need a new bag, but when do we really? I fell in love with this one and it would look so good with my initials embossed in gold lettering. Don´t we agree it´s very me?
