Maximum hippie

I'm so into maxi skirts / dresses right now. Here's Olivia Wilde (+friend) at farmer's market in L.A.

Would like to find that kind of hippie style maxi skirt / dress, any suggestions where to start looking?

Love, M

Today's style thoughts

Saw these photos on my daily visit to people.com and wanted to share them with you. Love these looks: Elizabeth Olsen (first photo) has combined everything beautifully, especially love the plain white shirt with the chunky necklace. And Rachel Bilson, those red pants with leopard heels, perfect!

Not allowed

What do you buy when you're not allowed to buy anything (and by anything I mean clothes, bags, shoes etc...) because of excessive spending on your holiday? The answer is scarves. Here's one.

Leopard scarf, H&M 

Although summer is still here I've started thinking about colder weather, leaves falling, knitwear... Autumn!! Extensive post of what I will covet this Autumn/Winter coming up soon!

With love,

Check out this amazing website called 'Dear Photograph'. It's where people post 'pictures of a picture from the past in the present', usually with small story related to that picture.

Cute, lovely, sometimes heartbreaking...

Demi Lovato styled by Elle... I'm not a fan, but I like these photos as they transform her from a Disney star to something edgy and kind of mysterious.

Photos from here.

Introducing yellow to my wardrobe

I bought a new bag and the shocking thing (well, for me) is that it's yellow! Jewel tones will be huge this autumn/winter, and this bag is the perfect colour... and big enough to carry all my stuff around (easily fits a laptop + more).

Bought it from Greece last week so sorry, don't know the label or remember the store's name! But I'm pretty sure I won't see lots of people in Helsinki walking around with this bag, which is a bonus.

Blazer love

Right now I'm really into blazers. That's especially because I'm always in a hurry in the morning, and it's so easy to just throw together a t-shirt and a blazer and be ready to go to work in 2 minutes. Lazy girl's dream!

My most recent blazer buys:

1. a pink silk (or silk mix) blazer from the flea market. Dare I say how much...? Just two euros. That's what I call a bargain!

 2. a light brown blazer from H&M.

Next I'd like to get a white/light beige blazer. Maybe something like these?

...And Julia shows us what a bad blazer looks like. Tut tut Julia.

Hope to hear your thoughts on the subject! Blazers, hot or not?
With love,

To-do lists

I wanted to share these cute outfits, although if I was Nicole I'd lose the black tights. Especially love Whitney's whole look.

This week I'm facing a major task:

1. organising my wardrobe
2. repairing all broken/unfitting clothes 
3. taking all leather bags and shoes that need fixing to the shoe shop 
4. dry-cleaning all clothes that can't be washed normally.

Don't know how I'm gonna do all this... 

Wish me luck!
Love, M

Finally! Skirt dreams come true...

As you might know, I've been searching for the perfect maxi skirt for a while now. Tonight I finally found what I've been looking for! 

I just ordered this sheer pleated maxi skirt from Mikkat Market

For 44$ (about 30€) it's a bargain! I think it's great for both sunny days and long, light nights...

And Mikkat Market is definitely worth your visit, they have so many simple but gorgeous clothes.

Steals and dresses

Hi all,

so last time I promised to share what I bought from the flea market. So here they are.

 The flea market is called Valtteri. If you ever travel to Helsinki it's definitely worth the visit. 

 Vintage silk shirt, 2 euros 

Blazer, 5 euros 

Skinny jeans, 2 euros 

And then a few new buys...

Flowy top, H&M 

 White dress, Nümph 
Also on the menu tonight...newest Marie Claire

A style tip (you probably knew already): the flowy top from H&M is size 42, instead of my usual size 36. I bought it too big on purpose because I wanted to use it ass a dress/tunic. So don't be afraid to try on clothes that are too big (or small!), as they might work better that way. 

Love, M

Ps. you can now follow my blog with bloglovin' too!

Feeling the Spring!

The weather is finally getting warm around here! People (me included) are nuts about the sun and try to spend as much time outdoors as possible! And with warmer weather, less clothes are needed...

So, some spring street style inspiration, por favor (you can also try to guess the city).


Right now I'm really into skirts... Have to find a maxi skirt/dress soon!

Next time I'll share my latest finds from the flea market (they were practically free)!!


(photos facehunter and sydneystreetstyle) guessed the city right?

At the Gala

It was the time for the Met Gala again. And the best dressed were...

 And the worst...

As you can see, I'm not a big fan of ruffles and cutouts in weird places (Beyonce's dress is also too tight). But I am a fan of nude / simple / colourful / long-sleeved / a bit sparkly dresses! Who was your favourite fashionista at the gala?
