CHEERS TO THE LONG WEEKEND.
I wore this simple outfit while hunting for a wedding gift for my best friend from school and her future husband who are getting married tomorrow. I have never been the early bird I know, heh. Now I just need to decide what to wear to the wedding.
In case someone is wondering, the fishnet bag is from one of Edinburgh's local grocery stores. The Line used to have a similar one in their selection but I am not sure if they still do.

P.S. Otin tälle viikolle pöydän (4) Jyväskylän Centrum -kirppikselle, jotta saan myös täällä päässä karsittua vaatekaappia. Siellä on vielä jotain jäljellä - mm. COSilta, Selected Femmeltä sekä monilta aussimerkeiltä ja paljon kenkiä. Osa jutuista on aika vanhoja, mutta kannattaa käydä tsekkaamassa.
PICTURES FROM PRADA'S CAMPAIGN SHOOT.
It was not love at first sight but I have slowly gone head over heels for Prada's fall 2016 collection. It is very feminine for sure - more than you would most likely ever see me wearing, but as always, inspiration is key.
I just love the versatility of the collection - as I mentioned the other day, it gives us nautical vibes, statement belts, checks here and there and bags styled on bags.
And how about the hair? Very sleek.

FEELING THE SUMMER IN DENIM SHORTS.
I could not be happier that the weather in Finland is finally allowing to wear pieces from my summer wardrobe. It means I am going to live in denim cutoffs - vintage Levi's of course.
Besides I probably own too many sandals for the climate can be anything over here but I could not resist another pair - I had had my eyes on them for a long time. They are not these snake skin sandals from ATP Atelier which have served me for years though (I need their Rosa sandals in my life as well) - those of you who follow me snapchat already know.

HOW PRADA DOES THE CLASSIC MULE.
The F/W 2016 collection of Prada is a killer - nautical vibes, checked patterns all over and bags styled on bags (!). However, I am simply in love with the suede mules which have just hit stores. It is a very ladylike style which would be nailed with edgier denim.
Return of the mule, no?

NEW IN FOR THE SUMMER VACATION.
Welcome my new 'Positano' one-piece from Toteme - the brand of Elin Kling which is currently selling some of the best basics out there.
It is for sure my new wardrobe favourite (such a shame that the summer lasts only for so long in Finland) but this swimsuit is also a good example of the fact you should always invest in pieces which you really want to wear instead of buying many 'okay' pieces.
You with me?

HOLIDAY AND DECOR INSPIRATION.
I often wonder if many people are as obsessed with swimming pools as I am (yes I have always been very hedonistic) - but I just love to chill by a swimming pool and to look at them. They instantly shift my mind to holiday mood which is definitely good for the soul. When I lived in Australia during my exchange year six years ago I used to dip in to my host family's swimming pool everyday. It was the best thing after a long day at school in the very climate.
As it is sunday I wanted to share some inspiration which would make you dream as well - I have been forced to stare the laptop screen and find new inspiration as caught a flue the other day. I guess every cloud has a silver lining.
