Trench Coat and Culottes

I have found culottes to be a great alternative for everyday jeans. I've come across plenty of 70’s inspired printed ones as well as more sophisticated pleated designs. I too decided to jump on the train

The Floral Bomber

I’m not usually a big fan of flower prints and lace, but during warmer weather you sometimes want to dress in a white summer dress and leave your hair curly. This Zara white lace dress has already seen a few summers, but now I found this Miss Selfridge floral print bomber to give it a fresh spin.

The Long Sleeveless Blazer

Since I was in London, it was time to head to one of my favourite shopping destinations, Oxford Street. The gruelling day long trek (yes, I was crazy enough to do the whole street) didn’t result in as many finds as I predicted, but I managed to still pick up some very nice pieces. The haul included this black sleeveless blazer from Miss Selfridge.

The Perfect Boyfriend Jeans

Finding the perfect boyfriend jeans ain't supposed to be as difficult as finding the perfect boyfriend. However the hunt for these jeans went on for ages! What made the search difficult were my specific criteria for the jeans.

Blond Ambition

When it comes to booking an appointment with the hairdresser, I am definitely one of those people who always wait a bit too long. Plenty of times work and studies keep me busy, but sometimes there is just no excuse. The final wake up call came in the most unpleasant way, seeing a picture of me at a party floating around on Facebook. Luckily my trusted hairdresser was available and I was able to get my hair sorted out.

Work Appropriate

When dressing for work, I try to keep it as simple as possible. I have been a big fan of the preppy shirt-with-a-jumper look. It’s easy to put together by combining just a few different items, which is what you want when dressing up in a hurry in the morning.

For work, school or almost any occasion, these white Vagabond lace up shoes are my favourite shoes at the moment. I really like how they dress down the outfit and add a little bit of quirkiness to any look. The platform also gives some nice extra height, but is much more comfortable than a heel.  However white shoes like these are a pain to keep clean. I have to clean them regularly, not after every use though like I used to do in the beginning.

I had been thirsting for a long flowy coat for a long time, and this spring this Zara wool coat caught my eye. Zara has produced this coat in a number of colours and it is easy to understand why. It’s a lovely minimalistic design which looks flattering on most people. The coat doesn't have any buttons, zippers or a lining. Still the coat has a pretty long season, since the fabric contains lots of wool.

Coat: Zara
Shoes: Vagabond
Bag: Furla

Pukeutuessani töihin yritän pitää asun mahdollisimman yksinkertaisena. Olen jo kauan ollut pusero ja neulepaita-yhdistelmän ystävä. Se on helppo koota yhdistelemällä muutamaa vaatekappaletta, mikä on kätevää pukeutuessa kiireessä aamulla.

Töitä, kouluta tai melkein mitä tahansa tilaisuutta varten suosikkini ovat tällä hetkellä nämä valkoiset Vagabondin nauhakengät. Tykkään siitä kuinka ne antavat rentoutta ja omaperäisyyttä mille tahansa asulle. Platform-pohjasta saa myös kivasti lisää pituutta, mutta ne ovat paljon mukavammat kuin korkokengät. Tällaiset valkoiset kengät ovat kuitenkin melkoinen painajainen pitää puhtaana. Joudun puhdistamaan niitä säännöllisesti, en kuitenkaan joka käytön jälkeen niin kuin alussa.

Olen etsinyt kauan pitkää liehuvaa takkia ja tänä keväänä silmiini osui tämä Zaran villakangastakki. Zara on tehnyt tätä takkia useassa eri värissä ja on helppoa ymmärtää miksi. Takissa on kaunis minimalistinen muotoilu ja se näyttää imartelevalta useiden ihmisten yllä. Takissa ei ole nappeja, vetoketjuja eikä vuorikangasta. Takin käyttöaika on kuitenkin varsin pitkä, sillä kangas sisältää paljon villaa.
