Facebook has started to remind ourselves of our memories, things shared in the past. I find them funny and lovely – usually the memories are something happy and positive – good moments, that we have wanted to share. But obviously, there are some other things too, things that other people have posted on your profile, posts about people that you have lost and etc.

Today, Facebook reminded me of a guy, that posted on my profile. It was some game, where you needed to post your first impressions of a person on his or her profile. The post said “Beautiful, but quiet”.

As in, I am beautiful, but not good enough – not entertaining enough – certainly not the light of the party. On the comment section we changed a few words and the guy asked me why I was so quiet and I responded with something like ‘it’s always the quiet ones’. What I was trying to say with that, was that I had more on my mind, than what was seen on the outside. What I was desperately trying to signal, was that I was worth getting to know to, but I wasn’t one of those, who let people close easily.

Well – I hardly knew that guy and remembering that time, I was hanging out with friends, that I am no longer in contact with.

But I still sometimes hear that accusation. Being quiet – there must be something wrong with me? Am I not happy?

And there lays the mistake – thinking, that only people, who are constantly talking, laughing and smiling are happy. People, who make friends easily and socialize around. People who let it be known, let it be heard.

To be honest, I’m not really sure why I started to write about this subject in the first place. I’m not sure, if I know what I really want to say with it. But what I do know, is that there is a certain peace in knowing yourself, knowing your worth and appreciating your life. That peace creates a happy feeling, that doesn’t only show on your lips, but feels all the way in your feet.

Sometimes all you need is to not to talk with people, but to simply know that they are there.

And if it looks like it’s beautiful, but quiet – so be it. I was never about much noise anyway.

Besides the beauty trends, I’m super inspired by Fall fashion. There are a few trusted items, that have been waiting in my closet. Now that the leaves have started falling and my coffee has turned into chai latte, those items are out.This outfit features all my favorites this season – leather pants, fur and a comfy knit. And a pop of colour in my makeup, obviously.

Leather pants – VILA
Knit – Second hand
Fake fur – VERO MODA (from my jacket)
Shoes – Vagabond
Jacket – Soaked in Luxury

Here’s a fun fact: My first public blog was about clothes and my style. Believe it or not, I used to wear super colorful clothes and be super into style altogether. I wore 3 inch tall yellow heels to school with dungarees and I did not give a damn!

During the years my passion for fashion has changed to passion for beauty and makeup. I think it’s been like that, because I have been still searching for my style. Being the weird kid all my childhood and dressing up like a goth, rocker or a colorful kawaii girl – it took some time for me to actually find a style, that I feel comfortable in. For a few years, I was happy to be ‘blending in’.

It’s only now, being in my twenties, that I feel like I’ve found my style. Or going in the right direction, at least. I love a simple, classic look. I like clothes, that make me feel good. And clothes, that actually feel good too.

I love this outfit and I could wear it everyday. You would think that leather pants are uncomfortable, but these are actually super comfortable. I own two pairs, because once you find something that suits you 100% – you throw your money at it.

If you’re bumping into me on the streets of Helsinki, I’ll probably be wearing these bad boys.

What do you think of this outfit? Do Fall trends inspire you?
