Winter wonderland

The weather in Helsinki has been giving me major Lapland vibes. It’s like a winter wonderland in here. It’s also been way sunnier than I had expected. Beautiful – and cold. A while back I ran 10 kilometres and my toes made it through just barely. Anyone else have the problem of their toes getting so cold they swell up like crazy when you come back indoors? Can you be allergic to the cold? Note to self: should probably check that out.

I’ll admit I still look at all the holiday pictures from beautiful beaches that everyone seems to be posting, but still, right now living in this wintery land feels nice. And I guess it doesn’t hurt that Risto is really enjoying both this winter and the cold (says it’s the perfect time to get work done).

The best sound at the moment is the snow scrunching below my shoes and the best thing to stare at are the birch trees against the light blue sky.

 

And as always with life, you don’t know how long it lasts. Might be grey, wet and major holiday fever the next day. So I’m trying to enjoy this while I can.

Fall trends: Leather & fur

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?
