Hues of Green

You know how sometimes you subconsciously do something repeatedly but you don't actually realise you are doing it until you take a look back at what you've been doing? Yeah, I've just done that, ie had a look at all my outfit posts from the past year. A recurring theme in my wardrobe has definitely been fifty shades of green this season. Army, forest, avocado, dark olive, hunter, pistachio, aspargus, artichoke – you just name a vegetable and I can guarantee my wardrobe has it. To prevent getting bored with my green thumb I've been mixing different hues of green and contrasting materials to create an interesting mix without being too matchy-matchy and out-dated. I mean, how coooooooool are these dip-dye leather trousers from one of my favourite brands for leather Muubaa.

Blue Is the Warmest Colour

Bbbbrrr grrreeetings from the freezing Finland, and by freezing I mean Frozen to the extent that I felt a compelling reflex to start singing 'Let It Go' out loud as soon as I stepped out of the airplane this weekend.

I adore this electric blue wool peplum jacket from Ted Baker I found last winter but didn't get that many uses out of it because London weather got very warm early on. I think. Or it might have been that I was finishing my last year of uni so I don't remember, my head was filled with sheer panic and information. ANYHOO, this year I'm going yay-yay cold weather yay, and seems like Ted Baker are doing a similar style in the same colour this year again. To balance the almost-blinding-your-corneas-brightness of the jacket I choose to calm it down with various neutral tones like grey, camel and black. Also, you can catch glimpses of my beautiful hometown as the backdrop to these chilly photos!

January Pinboard + Glossolody EP by Draper

Hello lovelies and happy new year 2015! Time to kick-start the new year with this month's inspiration pinboard full of black & white, rough surfaces, and delicate details. Also some killer new music by Draper to chill you out whilst trying to survive the maze that is post-Christmas sale shopping. Personally, I've been avoiding all sorts of sale signs with a meaning just because of the fact that regularly sane people somehow seem to go completely cray-cray when they see 'Harrod's' and 'sale' put together (some actually camp outside to get in first, I mean, really?). On the positive note though, there are lots of amazing things happening to so many of my closest and dearest that it makes me so very excited for this year despite my own personal confusions such as which shoe to wear with my midi skirt, the meaning of life, the vastness of the universe, what's right or wrong, et cetera. You know, the usual ponderings. Also having my birthday just around the corner makes the start of January always an extravagantly convenient time for me to wonder what I want to achieve this year and where I want to go next. Which is easier written than done. Stay tuned.
