In between seasons

I wore a selection of my current in-between season favorites the other day, instead of deciding what I want to look like this fall... but the small taste of autumn in the form of a puddle on the sidewalk turned out more interesting. I still want to think it's summer but the chilly nights have proven my wrong.. I'm now back in london but only for a few days, I'll be chasing the remains of summer by traveling a bit before settling back for fashion week and real life soon.

but before I have to express my love for this practical thing that has been hanging on me either as a dress or what I find almost ever better, a shirt. Need to take a few shots of it as a actual dress so you see what I mean. Simplicity for the win.. but although fall is the season where I usually love going back to all black, I'm thinking about introducing some mustardy yellow, and shades of purple in to my autumn wardrobe.. we'll see

Black out



alexander wang shoes

I wore another genius aqua dress out on friday.. although I always plan to photograph my night time outfits before leaving the house, it tends to never happen.. either it's pitch black outside or I'm running an hour and something late, mostly the second option.. or maybe actually always. 

So this time I opted for aqua, which I often rely on when going out. This seasons collection is super, again. I wore it with a new choker, simple and simply gorgeous...  I think the unplanned mismatch with the golden clutch buckle was kinda nice.

Diy dries hair


Finally a little diy that I have been planning... I've tried two different versions but I guess it can be done many ways.. the diy side of my brain started running wild when I saw this last spring, thinking how I could recreate the simple look of a metal hair ring... after a few days it finally occurred to me to use napkin rings! I did some shopping at the kitchen department and found surprisingly many rings and gadgets to pass as hair accessories..


1. I straightened my hair in the morning and left it for a day to not have it too sleek. Then without brushing I pulled my hair to the side and twisted it to get the ring all the way up.


2. I used a tube formed cast, meant for baking.. by pulling my hair tight while twisting, I pushed the tube up


3. Then I adjusted the height, leaving it semi loose. My hair is thick enough to keep the tube put but it can also be done with first tying a thin hairband around your hair, then pulling the tube ontop of it


4. done!


I also had to try a more sleek version, as I came across this silver ring that is used around wine bottles to prevent the drops from running drown the bottle neck.. the padding on the inside is great to not cause damage to you precious locks.


1. tie your hair first, then like before work the ring up by twisting your hair and adjust to wanted height


2. wear it either as a high ponytail or more casually loose.


I bought some thinner napkin rings to maybe try stacking a few... some have an opeing which would be even easier, and then of course there's a million different kinds to choose from including some in forms of ducks..... but I'll leave that to the man repeller to cover.

I finally got a change to wear this beautiful aqua dress that's been hanging in my closet for a while.. I first thought I might be to short for it, but it kinda works to my advantage. Before I can make it part of my everyday wardrobe I need to shorten it a bit... ehrm that would be a whole stripe or so........

oh and do you love what I did with my hair? a diy coming up next!

Warm up


Today we took some photos for a much asked hair post! I'm planning to do two different ones that I'll be posting it within the next days, so stay tuned..

I wore a vintage top that I found in the lingerie section in london's Rokit.. rummaging through the night- and underwear section in secondhand shops is the best place to find the prettiest lace tops!

Shoes we probably need asap


Shoe love, once again. That first pair would just make my fall but the beige ones would be great with bare legs... h&m surprised with a cool pair that would be willywonkas (and mine...) dream boots. Knowing myself I probably will be forced to get all of these within the next days or so, anyone with me...?

Hillbilly






isabel marant top
vintage levi's shorts
h&m mesh shorts
alexander wang shoes
 
In the hopes of trying to make the probably most featured blogger favorite less boring, I wore my denim cut-offs with mesh shorts.. and in the risk of looking like a complete hillbilly I took to my brilliant isabel marant knit, which actually now feels like the only right decision if you are sitting on a pile of wood in the middle of the forest..

July uniform





helmut lang top
alexander wang shorts
seconda watch

This, with some slight variations, is pretty much what I was stuck on wearing in july..  with a strong possibility of outfit repeating, I might just keep wearing this for the next weeks to come. The perfect cut on these shorts was enough to convince me I needed them in my wardrobe, and the waistcoat is quite timeless for my rock chic moments. The top is borderline long enough to pass as a dress, if I ever need it like that and the boots need no introduction..

For fall


zara boots
weekday ring

New things to help me eventually transfer into fall. But not yet, I started my vacation late and I’m going to stay in summer mode as long as possible..

aren’t the boots gorgeous? could be a bit higher but will definitely be a favorite for the months to come.

From a family of artists




onward into the future spike cuff from urban outfitters
silver bangles vintage
vintage fur waistcoat
nakkna dress

I was asked by jewellery designer Vanessa Mooney to style a few items from their beautiful, handmade range, and I have to admit the pieces could not have suited better in to my jewellery collection.. if you know me at all I think we can agree on that one right?

ethnic and truly bohemian, I swear I would wear every single piece. I had to borrow this picture that I think pretty much describes the whole feel..


and guess what? as a little summer treat, all my dearest readers get 25% off when you shop at vanessamooney.com just enter "VMSummer1" at the checkout!

We took these pictures with my sister at the park today, I could not resist showing you this beautiful Nakkna dress I got a while ago here in helsinki. It is somewhat of a kimono or a cape.. hard to say but pretty much exactly a dress made for me.

Still stuck on neon, especially when combined with white... I saw this knit online and had no problem spotting it in the store. It is, like my nails, a shade that hurts your eyes and would make your head explode if you were even slightly hungover. genius.
