Wool blend coat, faux leather pants and animal print top - H&M/ HERE & HERE & HERE Boots - NA-KD Bag - Gucci Sunglasses - RayBan
Hi there!! Meanwhile I have travelled to Estonia as J has his national team break and I have some work and then it's time for Tallinn Fashion Week! However, things haven't gone as I planned as 2 days ago I got a flu that got really really bad really quick. When J came home from his game around 1 at night, I tried to go to sleep hoping I could sleep the horrible feeling off but my face hurt so bad from the inside that I couldn't sleep all night and as the alarm clock went off 6am we had to start travelling to Oslo for our flight to Tallinn and boy was it the worst little trip I've ever had...probably the worst flu I've ever had too. I'm at home, still very sick and trying to do my best to get better so I can start working and go to my events by Thursday or Friday. Wish me luck..or good health that I would make it! Definitely have to do extra busy days once I'm healthy as I'm losing so much valuable time right now and I haven't been sick for so long so I don't know how to sit calmly and heal hahah!
We took a lot of Oslo trips lately as J needed some new Autumn stuff and well I just like Oslo more and more everytime and always happy to go. I always try to see new areas there so we went to see the palace and the university area before we hit the city centre and I think this part of Oslo is definitely the prettiest I've seen so far! Guess you can tell from photos a bit how beaut it is!
So I'm wearing an almost full H&M look here from the A/W collections and every piece here has found a cozy safe spot in my closet as they are THE perfect basics (and THE perfect animal print). The faux leather pants are such a good fit and I like the almost-but-not-that-much high waist and the zipper details at the bottom. Wearable with anything as is that amazing wool blend coat! I just can't get enough of it! It has this wide chunky cut while still elegant and it looks so high-end! Definitely my current favourite coat as it goes with anything and is so warm with its wool blend that I've been going to football games with it and whenever I needed to be a bit warmer in Norway. That's an absolute gem among the A/W collections in H&M so make sure to check it out in stores quick as they have been in stores for a few weeks and already ran out of in my hometown in Norway! Eventhough the basics are so perfect, the outfit's star is the perfect animal print top. I am not a fan of all kinds of leopard or animal print as it has to be very specific sized with very specific colours for me to like it, but I fell in love with this top as soon as I saw it because it's literally EXACTLY the kind of animal print I like and the top is so cool with its orange details and slim fit! The whole outfit became my go-to in September and October, but I think I have to start changing lighter tops to chunky turtleneck knits under my coats soon because surprise... I got the flu after all!
It's so good to be home guys! Especially now that I feel so ill and mom does everything she can to heal me up for an important weekend, she's the best! Also happy to cuddle with my furry pups again! Gonna give them some hugs and then reply to some mails before I will hit the bed early. Have a great week cuties! x
Wearing everything from River Island
Hey loves, I'm back with another full RI look and this time going full on Fall with the first teddy jacket of the season! Why I'm claiming it to be the first is that I have already gotten my hands on some super SUPER cute teddy coats from different brands and I will be showing them all Winter long because hey, who doesn't love them? I sure do and they are lifesavers for Nordic bloggers haha! So the very honorable first is something I wanted to get my hands on last Winter already - a brown teddy jacket. When I last went to Amsterdam in January I felt like I wanted to wear this exact colour there because I thought it would fit the aesthetics of the city perfectly and it was somekind of a boom of this kind of jackets in Amsterdam that I somehow got so caught up into, but what I didn't find anywhere was this jacket. Either sold out or with a big hoodie, so thanks so much River Island for launching this perfect short brown teddy to snuggle into and that I can bring me to Amsterdam if me and J decide to go again this Winter, because we loved the city! It's now cold weather football game watching tested as well and yes it is super warm! SInce I like to wear very simple basics with my teddies then I went for a simple white tee and white sneakers with pretty details look, but I found these gorgeous satin skinny pants from River Island as well and thought they looked funky for the outfit. These pants will be used at so many parties and events during Winter for sure as they have such a beautiful glow and can be worn with so many things because they are like formal black jeans you know.
So what has been going on in daily life..been watching lots of football games and working hard on laptop basically, but me and J have been a lot in the nature recently as it is so beautiful at that early Fall phase and the weather has been relatively good but SO COLD suddenly! Also I've managed to break my laptop's mouse pad in other news haha, had to go buy a mouse for it as otherwise you wouldn't be hearing from me and pictures would go unedited and untouched. Today we're gonna shoot some photos again and tomorrow it's the big European League homegame day that I am scared and excited about at the same time. It's still so crazy cool that J actually plays these games with his team..outsiders succeeding at its finest! But where it gets tricky is that we don't know if we will be flying to Estonia on Friday or Monday for the national team games break again. It makes it a bit tricky for me with my colloborations in Tallinn as I have no idea how to plan my schedule for the weekend but hope I will get to know as early as possible. In Tallinn there will be events and collabs waiting but foremost it's time for Tallinn fashion Week again! I am super excited about this year's TFW as the line up is so great and I can't wait for the fuzz and these dark but fashionable October nights to start again! Also there are of course two home games for the national team that I'm gonna attend and otherwise will be working and spending time with family and friends and my cutest doggies again. Definitely will hop by to get a treatment from Decus Clinic again and I will tell you about that amazing beauty clinic in the next or the second post I'm gonna publish depending on my schedule what I have planned to tell you about in my blog!
Now I'm gonna wait for the delivery guy to bring my packages and off I go! Have a loooovely humpday beautiful peeps! x
1. row: HERE HERE and HERE
2. row: HERE HERE and HERE
Okay I could add a pair of crocodile or snake patterned ankle boots here plus a pair of my always wanted Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga boots, but here's a super B&W take on my boots wanties for this Fall and Winter, because well, that's what I wear the most to my outfits and I just love a good selection of black boots as my style is quite broad and sometimes I want a pair of lady like kitten heels while sometimes I want robust chunky boots and sometimes I feel like making my legs long with knee high boots and sometimes I feel like being sky high. But I added two pairs of white boots that have been on my mind lately because I can't always have black to everything and white is the 180 degree turn from black boots and goes with more soft and subtle tones, but still also goes with a large broad of looks as the black ones too. Of course if I were to be even more edgy then I would get a pair of nude coloured snake prints to make my shoes stand out the most. There's a lot of deciding what to get for this season and I tried to come up with ideas while making this post and also share some of my favourites pick from webshops! I already ordered the first row middle ones by the way, because I love that they don't look like they are super high but actually with that chunky platform they give extra 14cm of height! As an under 170cm person I appreciate these boots so much haha. My other obsession includes very chunky flat lace up boots like the white ones above and also boots that go up to knee only, which I've learned makes legs look a lot longer than over knees and the ones listed are sooo good as they are tight as well! I own a pair of brown ones that are loose so a tighter fit would be good to add to my shoe closet! For my next wanties post I'm gonna dig out some super good animal print boots and throw them into deciding process as well, but until then I will continue deciding between B&W.
Wearing head-to-toe River Island (the set is from the RI30 collection)
Hi babes! During last couple of days I've been alone in Sarpsborg, working on my other job and as J came back from his game in Istanbul then we went to Oslo for some shopping and took a lot of photos for me to now work on while he is travelling again (today to Trondheim). So they had the first group stage game in the European League on Thursday as they played against the big Besiktas and I gathered with Nina and Mathilde to watch it that night and it was so much fun watching the European League games with the girls over such a while! As I have been staring at my laptop again for a couple of hours now since it's Sunday and Sunday means e-mails and late week's work to be done, then I will have a little break now after I post this outfit and will start work again in an hour and so thus I won't make it to watch his game anywhere else but from my couch today. Oh and about Oslo, I don't know what's up but I usually like a city or not from a first day I see it but with Oslo I've grown to like this city more and more with each visit and now I've been finding so many cool places lately! I could of course always use some more photospots or cool places to see/visit/taste so let me know if you have something favourite in Oslo, whether it's a food place or whatever you come up with as you think of this city! Let me know in the comments!
Actually haha, I went full "city babe" at first, with heeled boots and oversized sweater and stuff, but as we were walking through the city for many hours finding spots and J's sneaker stores, I started to get so uncomfortable because I wore my boots for the very first time and I just knew it was a bad idea to have them on all day as I hadn't worn them in yet (you probably know the deal with this) so I was super glad I had brought another outfit with me as I wanted to of course take something so wonderful and shoot it in a bigger and better environment than it is Sarpsborg. Yeaaap this set is so wonderful I can't stop wearing it everywhere these days. It's from the River Island's 30th birthday collection which is full of amazing pieces with cool patterns, mostly scarf patterned and has many super dope looking bags! But this set is just such a grab-and-put-on look when I'm in a hurry or going to town or grocery shopping as it fits all contexts and the loads of compliments I've gotten is just crazy haha! Oh and as I have posted a lot with this set on my Instagram Stories then a lot of people have asked me where to get this set and told me later that their size was sold out (as the collection of course sells out pretty quick) so in case the Tallinn store or any other is out of these sets then I will post the links from the RI website HERE and HERE to this masterpiece.
Wearing a suit, bag and top from Emporio Armani
Hello again Norway, thanks for greeting with such nice weather! It was a pretty long trip here with J as we took the car and also decided to hop by Norrköping, the city in Sweden where we used to live. So we went to our apartment building there and had the roadtrip lunch break at the spot where we used to have lunch at almost everyday! I really love to go back to places I used to live at and get used to. I've been back to different cities in Sweden where I lived for many times now, but now I've also gone by Norrköping and it's very cool to see how much has changed and how different the city looks after all these years. It was a nostalgic moment for sure, but made our trip much longer than we thought! Now we're back and I'm ready to dig into my laptop work again more now that I don't have that many meetings and trips to Tallinn to make as I did for the past 2 weeks. J is back as well with his injury gone as he played against Greece a bit and a full game against Finland in the national team. Now full focus is on the European League games they start this month hand last until December mid-part plus the Eliteserien games are also still on. Hectiiic tiiimes but so much good football to watch, I'm super thrilled!
But buuut, before I left took some photos with the amazing golden suit I found at the Emporio Armani store! When I saw it from across the store immediately I gasped as I am a big fan of matching suits, but I haven't met something this gorgeous! It bedazzles in gold, it's like stardust mixed with a glittery golden highlighter or so. The photos obviously cannot capture the glitter and the golden blushy shade of it, which is why the suit looks almost different coloured on each photo. It is just beautiful to look at and while it was so extra in material, it has a more loose fit, which makes it less intense and wearable in a larger range of situations. This kind of high-waist suit pants with a loose but perfect fit blazers are so good to wear without a top under or with a lacey bra perhaps or a crop top or any top you like under it. I chose to go for a more casual look to show how it can be worn as a laid-back version and picked a simpler top with the EA logo on it to go under the blazer. I wore it in two ways on the photos - tucked into pants and also rolled up to show the high-waisted pants more. Then I just added a pair of white sneakers and picked a really effective and cute furry bag to go with the look and make it even more exciting! It's a very cool new season handbag that comes in different colours and if you guys follow me on Instagram you probably realize I have some sort of a thing for furry and feather-y accessories and when I see one, I grab it! This suit is definitely stuck on my mind and if I were to wear it to a more formal event then I would close the blazer, wear a lace-y bra or nothing under it and put some really high heels under the pants without rolling them up in that casual way. I would look like a tall, dazzling golden statue and that's exactly the effect Emprio Armani clothing wants you to have! Shine girl!
Make sure to check out the Emporio Armani Tallinn store for some really edgy and youthful Fall-Winter jackets and coats and also for some beautiful classics and out-of-this-world looks for formal events to come! The new A/W 18 collection is simply beautiful.
Denim jacket - H&M/ coming soon Shorts - Vintage Levi's Sneakers - Bronx Selectors/ HERE
Hi guys! I'm packing up my stuff right now, kinda trying to put together some outfits, kinda lost in my wardrobe. I wanna bring so much stuff with me but I simply can't and it's very tricky with Fall and Winter clothing being so large. Honestly this football girlfriend life might seem fun and all but try to be a fashion blogger at the same time hahah. I just can't take all my wardrobe with me as J might move just like that, in a day or so real soon and then I would have trouble getting my things back home or to a new place. But I still have to keep up with fashion so it's gonna be a lot of luggage either way, luckily we will travel back with the car so it's easier that way. Wish me luck keeping my head together with this haha!
Tomorrow's gonna be a very very busy day so I thought I will post a look here before I head to sleep today. It features two clothing pieces that I am very obsessed with currently. There are a lot of belted jackets, blazers, etc. around with different styles and I am caught up in this as well. Needless to stay I love belted blazers a lot but now I started to love belted denim jackets as well! This jacket is just so edgy cool but also flattering and just feels so great as a daily throw-on on anything basically. I loved to wear it with short shorts to make it look like a super short dress from farther away, but now that it's a bit breezy I think I will have to opt for the longer Levi's. Aaaand well here are the Bronx Selectors sneakers that i bet you've seen on my Instagram already 20 times haha, because they truly are my current go-to shoe to all outfits. I was a bit scpetical about the bright yellow and green and thought the sneakers would go with more colourful or B/W outfits but they seriously fit E V E R Y W H E R E. These dad style sneaks go with me anywhere right now and I will try very hard to switch these for other shoes like heels and stuff but I can't look away from the possibility of wearing these awesome and super comfortable shoes to any outfit and outfit shoot. Everyone deserves a universal shoe like that!!
I could go on forever how much I love this look here, but I guess you can see it all from my Instagram anyway. Now I'm gonna be away from my blog a few days as I am travelling back from Estonia to Norway, but then I have a huge beauty post prepared for you guys and a precious collab of mine as well! Have a great time my peeps! x
Everything from River Island
It's Sunday and I'm home relaxing and working from my computer today as I am a bit tired from yesterday. Last night was the first national team's game in Tallinn against Greece and I went to Tallinn a bit earlier to fix some work stuff and the game was also super late, so after I drove back to hometown (didn't feel like staying in Tallinn for the night) I think I reached home around 3 at night and it was super difficult to drive in pitch dark on a mostly forest road as you can imagine. So I slept in today and am taking it easy. This last week was mostly crazy for me as I drove to Tallinn a lot and had a lot of work to do learned that I am not super healthy right now as my shoulder is super tensed up and I also got a call from Stockholm University one morning that I was late accepted to the Fashion Master's Studies (I was 4th on list until now) which was amazing news, but as I have already moved to Norway fully and have some good plans covered for Fall/Winter already then it was practically impossible to enroll into studies without having a place to stay in Stockholm or ANYTHING prepared as they expected me to be there in a few days! The good news is that I got the spot which means that now that I won't join in this year, my papers are transferred to next year and I can be accepted quite easily, so I am definitely very excited to probably join the Master's next year if not any other in another country depending on where we move next in Winter. Deciding that and all the work this week has been a bit stressul, so I am happy to go relax a bit in Norway as we drive back on Wednesday. I'm happy I got to see my friends at blog events and elsewhere and of course happy to always spend time with fam and dogs! I think J is the happies over the little break at home he got and he is healthy from his injury now and on his way to Finland for the last national team game this break.
So does everyone have their Summer clothes packed up and Fall clothes back in the closet? I went through with the change 2 days ago and put soooo many new things up for sale in my Yaga webstore (find it HERE). I kinda like that season change as I get to see what I actually have hidden in that deep deep closet and also get inspired a bit. Due to my shoulder, everything off-shoulder flew straight into summer clothes storage, even the sweaters and knits because it can't get any cold in the nearest future. It was so warm during past few days as it felt completely like summer, but I am a bit excited that today it feels like skirt + sweater combination which is my favooourite thing! But if you don't have a lousy shoulder like I do then the midi blue dress from River Island is ideal for this warm fall weather as well! I wore that a lot when I was in Sarpsborg for a week now, because I just feel so good in it. It creates a super pretty bodyshape and flaunts the important parts and well it looks super classy and beautiful while doing it! It was so warm when we took the photos that I could add my RI fluff accessories to it wooop. These slippers are just from another world, but very comfy and I just have this weakness for feathery-fluffy stuff! Can you relate haha!? Definitely keeping this gorgeous dress for the next SS19 season, because if something fits you perfectly then it should probably stay in the closet as long as possible, these things can be hard to find sometimes!
Oh and talking about River Island, definitely check out their RI 30 anniversary collection online and in stores because IT'S AMAZING! Trust me. Now I'm gonna take a little walk with my doggies before I will start putting together Fall outfits I wanna definitely bring to Norway with me and maybe pack a little already if I get sucked up into that clothing-mood haha. Have a good night loves and a super great new week! x
Dress, sunglasses & Clutch from Emporio Armani (all available at Emporio Armani Tallinn store)
Morning my lovely bloggsters! I am so happy to share one of my latest Fall looks with the Emprio Armani A/W 18 collection that has recently hit the stores! We all know Emporio Armani can deliver some outstanding formal and classical looks, but what really caught my eye from the A/W18 collection was this logo dress instead! A dress like this can be worn to so many occasions, including as a casual dress with sneakers as I loved to style it as the large Emporio Armani logo makes it really edgy and easy to style as B&W. Besides the logo, the top turtleneck part of the dress is really gorgeous and stretchy, giving the dress its elegancy and the material is amazing making it super comfortable to wear. I really love this mini and I think September doesn't mean that mini skirts have to be packed away for next summer, but exactly this kind of a dress is an example of a mini dress that can be worn during Fall season and later with knee high boots when it's colder. Our weather is good enough in Tallinn right now, so I guess this dress can have a long go for sure!
I styled the dress with some round Emporio Armani shades for a more casual but also late summer-y look and added one of the coolest clutches I've seen this year among designer bags. There's just something so beautiful, but strong about this eagle-shaped clutch depicting the Emporio Armani logo. I've now checked that here's multiple colours of this bag available as well, but I think the structured black leather one is the most beautiful one! This clutch however is from the A/W17 collection, but still available at the Tallinn's Emporio Armani official store. The A/W18 collection has the same shaped bag as a belt bag, which is also a really eye-catching accessory to anything! Oh and the clutch I'm holding comes with a shoulder strap as well! Don't you just love it!?
It's actually pretty late by now as J and I just got back from Tallinn. I had a photoshoot, visited showrooms and met up with friends whilst J had his national team training so pretty much seperate things to do all day and tomorrow is likely to be the same except that I have an event and another photoshoot. Haha I'm actually too tired to write things, but I still have some work with social media to catch up with, so I'll better get to it and go to sleep as early as possible. Gotta wake up early for that much needed massage after all (yassss)! Have a good night everyone! x
Me and J wearing H&M Studio A/W 18 collection coat and sweatshirt
Hey guys!! Oh my how much has happened again and not for me specifically but for J! I made it back to Norway on...I think it was 23rd of August and was expecting to stay until around 5th of September until J's national team games, but J got a small injury and had to suddenly stay away from training and games for about 2 weeks so we came home to Estonia so suddenly. At least I got to see some games and my friends there before. We had to drive to Estonia with a little Mini Cooper since J's Audi also got a little injury and had to stay in a workshop. What and adventure haha! Then we got on the cruise ship from Stockholm to Tallinn and at the same time J's team was competing their last European League game in Israel which determined if they will qualify for European League group stage or not and they...WOONNNN!!! Oh my god it was so intense to follow the game without J being able to help anything and by being on the ship but we sure did celebrate after haha (cruise ships can be so fun if you know how to have fun)! This is probably one of the most amazing things in J's career, it's huge in football for a small club like that! But after the trip home we spent a day in Tallinn doing my blog work and J fixing up his errands and now we're both relaxing at our hometown. Well I'm not that happy to be back as I just was here for a month but J is so happy to be home over such a long time, I would rather be in Norway as I got to spend so little time there, but we'll go back in a week or a bit more. I'm still so so proud of my babe for achieving this amazing milestone with his incredible team and thank you so much guys for bringing the victory home from Israel! You deserve it all!
While in Tallinn we also shot the looks for the upcoming collection H&M Studio A/W 18, and I just LOVE these photos of us together, I hope you guys like them too! I styled the amazingly beautiful olive coat and J styled the velvet detailed college sweatshirt! The coat is my favourite thing to wear with bare legs right now, both with heels and sneakers. I love the 3/4 sleeves that will look so good with long leather gloves during Winter and the super stiff cut of the coat that makes it looks really luxurious somehow. The olive tone is also really perfect to match with everything and the belt and details are on point! J's sweatshirt has a classical navy blue colour and the logo in front is of yellow velvet, which makes it look really exciting in real life. I've seen the whole collection at H&M Showroom and I've found so many pieces I would love to have in my wardrobe from tie-up blouses to leather jackets to silky stuff and the stuff for guys is also really cool with some strong college-style influence. The collection hits selected stores on 6th of September and is sure to sell out super quick, especially that coat so hurry hurrry! I'm gonna see if I can join in for the Studio collection event on Tuesday, hopefully can drive to Tallinn on that day!
J's been at home relaxing all day as he still has to join the national team on Monday while I'm gonna use this time at home to work work work and join him to Tallinn on Monday for some shoots and showroom visits to dooo. But I should get ready as we're gonna go see a horror movie at the cinema tonight haha, have a great weekend loves! x
Dress - Iva Nikolina x NA-KD/ HERE
And here I am, already back in beautiful Norway because time just flies by like crazy! I had the most wonderful weeks at home 'doggysitting' my 3 most precious little dogs while my parents wated to vacay in Italy. I also got so much work done (photos, meetings, showroom visits, etc.) that I am more than prepared for the Fall and winter to come now! I just can't wait to show you guys all the cool stuff coming to stores so soon and I will start posting most of them here not only my Instagram as it was the case during summer. Also I have some really cool projects I can't wait to share! Oh and it was so great to see all my friends again, some who I hadn't seen for months! But still, just so glad I get to spend so much time with my doggies alone as they are just the sweetest, friendliest and funnest little creatures and I enjoy every minute with them as I get so little of those minutes. That's the worst downside of living so far away from home, but hey, at least I am so happy to see J again over such long time!
His European League games have gone so well that they are now playing the play-offs and yesterday when I arrived to Norway they had the first game at home and won! But the bad part is that J's insury got a lot worse during yesterday's game and he has to skip games and trainings for at least 2 weeks now. We are deciding whether we should go home or wait a little and go home in September when it's the national team pause. Either way I hope the Sarpsborg guys will bring the Europeal League spot home next week from Israel!
I actually for some reason thought my workload was gonna get smaller with Autumn. I have no idea why I thought like that hahah! AW18 season is offficially beginning and that means even more work in fashion. But as I am not the type to sit around, I will start looking for something to work more on in Norway too (in addition to my blog work and social media marketing work), because me and J have decided to postpone my Master's half years or a full year and first see where the season end takes him, because his contract in Sarpsborg ends in December. For a couple who has been in long distance relationship on-off for 6 years, it's a natural decision to try and find a country that fits us both well to avoid this long distance stuff in the future. But I stil want my Master's done as soon as possible, so the decisions have to be quick and efficient for my sake. I'm either way really happy to stay in Norway for A/W as it is so beautiful and peaceful here!
BUT GUYS THAT DRESS WITH THE NORWEGIAN NATURE THO. I collaborated with NA-KD a lot over the summer and decided to grab myself something out of the box exceptional in addition to all the pretty summer pieces. I decided it will HAVE TO be that Iva Nikolina x NA-KD collection maxi dress because of its suuuper high slits, bared shoulders, bright red velvet-y colour and flowy-ness. So many reasons to love that beautiful piece of clothing, you can probably tell that from the photos. It's so amazing I named it 'fuego' because to my it resembles wild fire with its colour and movement. Gonna bring out that dress from my closet anytime I need something elegant but also super edgy and daring to wear and these high slits make it so so daring haha. And where else to take photos of it than the beautiful rocks in Norway, with a sunset of course.
Now me and J are gonna watch a movie and figure out our plan for his relax weeks haha! Talk soon! x
Dress - Dry Lake/ HERE and HERE Sneakers - Alexander McQueen
Friday night and I'm here with my blog haha, but I'm so happy with my Nööp snoring into my ear, looking at his little dog dreams and waving paws. It's really nice to spend time with my dogs alone so much. I've been taking them on so many car rides and we've had so much fun together, but it's also been so much work again. I feel like my work pile goes up and down so much and I somehow take up my blog a lot more when I'm the busiest. Guess I'm in some zone then haha! I've been to Tallinn for a few times now to meet up with showrooms for the upcoming AW collections and seeing my friends, having lunch and pizza dates and my favourite rose wine. Oh it was so great to see everyone and also hop from showroom to showroom discovering cute stuff coming up but I also got reminded why Tallinn made me really anxious and how a month in Norway has turned me into this super calm peaceful person real quick. You know sometimes you fit well with a city and sometimes you don't and that's why I'm happy to just keep visiting but no longer live there. And Norway means amazing spa-hotels by the sea which hasn't been any harm hahah! So when we went to Stotvig again I had just received my gorgeous Dry Lake dress which is the best thing to wear right now, especially when it's late Summer. My followers must think I'm crazy to be wearing a fully floral maxi dress because of my minimal self but hey, it has slits which I LOVE and I tend to get a bit affected by the environment and these dresses are worn by so many girls here in Norway that I simply got inspired by the beauty of these dresses and now I live in this beauty! With white sneakers..that's a must for me!
So what can I tell you about Fall news...ANIMAL PRINTS! Lots and lots of different styles in different prints but mainly the cheetah print and the snake. Also cowboy boots continue to be a thing together with bright red colour and the mustard tones we had last Winter as well. Oh and teddy jackets continue to be in (yassss) aaand plaid doesn't go anywhere. I think I should gather up a moodboard real soon to show the trends coming up, right? Yes. But what I'm on a hunt for this Fall-Winter are more classic. I definitely would need a pair of a bit more platform chunky ankle boots and a really well tailored wool coat in either beige, camel or nude colour. I'm always on a look-out for really perfect basics I guess as they lay the main platform for a good style!
Planning to book a flight back home and was thinking of 22nd of August, because then I get to spend time with Norwegian summer a bit more and I will be coming back to Estonia for a week in the beginning of September anyway, so I would have plenty of time there then. J has been doing so well with his league and European games both and I sooo wish I could be on spot watching these games but hey, it's been so great at home too that I'm alright either way (no really I could use teleportation for sure). I have a beauty post planned for you next, but I'm gonna write another blog post for PSI as well and then off to bed, so enjoy your weekend everyone! x
Dress & Shoes - River Island
Hello again Estoniaaa! Good to be home although I already miss J and Norway too, but since my parents headed off to Italy and I could use some time to catch up with my work at home then I'm staying here for around 3 weeks working and looking after our dogs as well. The heat here is even more unbearable than in Norway and today when it rained for like 5 minutes I put my face up and just let it fully soak me hahah, me and my dogs were so happy about that rain! Anyway I hope my friends will be able to see me during these short weeks full of work so hit me up! I was already in Pärnu yesterday and will head to Tallinn and Tartu as well.
You all probably know by now I've been working with River Island in Estonia for quite a long time now, but I finally have these amazing news I hoped to be able to share since I started the collaboration..the PETITE collections are finally in Tallinn stores! Why is this so amazing news? Well I'm a very small build girl with 167 cm of height, skinny build and tiny bones so sometimes a size XS is not small enough for me when it comes to dresses. At River Island the dresses and playsuits were fine but there were always some parts like underarms or back that were hanging too much or too big for me so now I will definitely first rush over to the Petite collection at River Island and then check out other dresses and clothes and that's because I found this amazing button dress from there and it fits so perfectly! It's a full linen dress so it's perfect with this heat and it has this super elegant cut that makes it good for any occasion during summer. My favourite part just has to be the back and the way it hugs the waist so beautifully! The buttons have been in for a long time now so I'm amazed I only now managed to find a perfect one in this style so now I'm gonna wear it sooo much until the weather doesn't allow me!
Today was all work day so tomorrow I'll allow myself some time at the beach and my favourite cafe in town and will probably work in the evening instead. Of course will spend most of my time cuddling with my pups because they are just the sweetest and cutest little cookies, especially when I'm the one getting all the attention from them haha! Heart is full! Good night! x

Goood evening blog! I'm sipping another iced cappucino here as I've needed coffee pretty much all day today, just feeling so tired and having a big headache somewhere behind my eyes. Now I'm feeling a bit better with the day gone by, but at least I got a lot of work done instead of going out in the sun. I've been out in the sun literally everyday this summer and it feels weird to sit in this one day but hey, sometimes you gotta lock yourself in to get that work done right? Took J to the stadium 8am today as they flew off to Switzerland for another round of European Cup and I can't wait to see that game on Thursday! Wishing the guys all the best out there, but I will be missing the home game in August as I will be flying to Estonia on 29th of July and returning to Norway around 20th of August. Finally decided when I will be flying haha yay! Of course I'm sad to miss out on some games and so many days of Norwegian summer but I also can't wait to see everyone back at home. J is coming back on 27th so we were planning to maybe go to Göteborg in Sweden before I leave to check the city out finally. Hope we will have enough time, would be so fun!
I'm seeing my favourite brands showing their pre-fall collections and their fall collections' photoshoots and it's that part of the summer where you realize that it's only a month left of that easier time and you just can't make yourself look at the thick jackets and coats and knits. But recently I got my hands on an AMAZING blazer dress which is from the Hannalicious collection at NA-KD and this is fortunately something I can wear through summer and also every other season, just styled differently! Okay this blazer has gotten soo many questions on my Instagram already so I decided to share a blog post with it to give you guys a direct link to the whole outfit. The colour is literal perfection, because you can't really tell what colour it is, green or blue and also it apparently changes colour in different light. NA-KD couldn't also name it any other than "petrol" coloured which is so dope I think. The belt can be fixed and removed so you can either wear it as I do or without the belt as a chunk oversized blazer. I also really really love the bell sleeves on it! I styled the dress with the patent lace boots from the Sahara Ray x NA-KD collection. I've been on a look-out for this kind of boots for 2 months probably and when I saw these with the side hoops and skinny cut I just had to have them immediately! It's just sad there's no chillier weather to actually wear these with haha, because anything but open-toe flats and flip flops is out if the question currently, but I can't wait to rock these cool things with so many outfits as it gets cloudy/rainy any time soon (although for Friday they promise 34 degrees in Sarpsborg so it doesn't look good on that side). But no I don't want this beautiful weather to go so the booties can wait!
I'm gonna continue this evening behind my laptop, maybe re-watch some Gossip Girl episodes as I have YET AGAIN been captured into this bubble like I do over and over and do some cleaning and tomorrow I think I might take a little roadtrip on a more sandy beach somewhere on the coast. Have a fun week lovelies! x

Hey everyone! Hope summer has treated you all well! My heatwave is still so on-going here haha, I just realized I haven't seen a rainy day or less than 20 degree day since mid-May and that's just too crazy compared to the last summer's I've had where you could maybe count around 15 days of sun in total haha!? So what has been going on lately is that me and J have tried to make the most out of these amazing days here and roadtripped around the Ostfold area finding more and more cool places to explore, swim, fish and sunbathe at. J's team also got through to the next round of the European Cup which was so awesome to witness with the girls here, always so fun to watch football with them as they get super lively haha! I also meanwhile took on a social media marketing job next to my blog work and it's great eventhough blog work has been taking so much of my time, I just can't be not-busy even during summer. But Norway has been a great summer treat and I love that summer just keeps following me whereever I go these days, but now it's time to head home to Estonia for a few weeks in some days and I'm happy to go experience some Estonian summer as well eventhough there was already plenty of that in May, but of course always great to see my friends, dogs and famiy and catch up with some blog work that was left behind there! Im either gonna fly there 24th or 29th, haven't decided yet but should do it about NOW as it's already 21st hahah! But friends I hope to see all of you during these weeks at home!!!
Me and J just got back from the lakeside and I'm taking some time to work. The outfit with the Dry Lake blouse is from a pizza date at Fredrikstad two weeks ago. I really have grown to like the neighbouring city Fredrikstad as it has a super nice riverside area with so many different open-air restaurants plus has great shops, views and cute boats floating on river. We have been there every 3rd day lately as we've gotten too used to Sarpsborg now and want some difference. I love that top so much though! It's so beautiful and delicate and can be worn in so many ways. My favourite would be with ivory jeans or denim shorts as I wore it on the photos with some mid-heel shoes as it makes the blouse a bit more casual, but also stand out more! It's on sale right now so I would definitely hurry to get it off Dry Lake site!!
I'm gonna do some of my marketing work, send some e-mails and then will get ready as we are gonna head to get some snacks at this cool ice cream-bar-looking-place we found today! It's such a basic photospot kind of place so yes I have to get ready for that hahah! Talk to you soon and don't forget to enjoy the rare beautiful days Nordic peeps! x
Everything from River Island store in Tallinn
I've come to learn that I seem to say that every dress I put on is my favourite for the summer haha, but I think it's all true as well as the dress trend is back strong and the styles this summer are really cute! I haven't been able to wear anything besides denim shorts or dresses due to the non-stop heatwave first in Estonia and then once I moved to Norway and it's so great! I've got a large bunch of dresses with me here and I just wish I could wear them all at once you know. So here's another one of those favourites - my striped River Island frill dress! I'm not a fan of green but with stripes I simply adore it, also not a fan of frills, but this cut I again adore. This type of dresses with large frills in the bottom and V cut are the biggest dress trend of all of them this summer and this River Island one made me want one in full beige as well. Of course this stunning dress would be of a better fit on an Italian coast haha (dreaming) but it works so well when out in town as well when paired with chunky white sneakers. Oh and the round bag from River Island is still my favourite thing to pair with cute summer dresses, nothing beats that one!
Yesterday the game went soooo well as they won with a big score! Just love the vibes after a good game! Today I'm trying to figure out the dates when I will be going home for a few weeks, gonna do some necessity shopping and probably will have a little date night in Fredrikstad before J heads off to Iceland tomorrow for the European League game. Have a great new week people! x
