I am in love with this outfit! It's  my go to summer look this year and it feels perfect for our vacation in Finland representing the colors of the flag. I definitely feel some national pride whenit comes to this ountry - my home away from home. My years spent in this beautiful nordic nation has made me almost half a finn and in my heart it sometimes feels like my “real“ home. Have I ever told you how the name of this blog came to be? Well, this little space here was supposed to be my blog during my time abroad and should tell the story and conflict that was going on between my German heart and my ever growing Finnish soul. It felt like my body was divided in these two parts and it still does feel like that even though I have returned to Germany and am settling down with Mr.B.  My soul will forever be altered by the beautiful Finland and I am glad to be back once again.

4th of July look

1-IMG_4954

This look definitely comes a little late, as the 4th July was like 3 weeks ago, but I still wanted to share this look.  My history with America is well known and I still love this country. It holds a special place in my heart and I do feel a little patriotic every July. My time in the USA was special and I love wearing red white and blue for Independence Day. This look is also special as I got this dress at VivienofHolloway during my trip to London in May. The kitty dress is a vintage reproduction style right up my alley with wooden buttons, front pockets, an original 40s cut and this beautiful Hawaiian print. I just had to have it and could see myself buying it in more patterns as well!

The Blues

When it comes to summer, I always tend to gravitate towards blue shades, turquoise aquamarin, navy. It just feels like a true summer color as I associate it with the ocean, a beach and all that just stands for summer. I think one can never have to many summer dresses and this one is a current favourite of mine that works so well with blue and red accessories! We just returned from our trip to Finland and I will continue my 100years of Finland series soon with some fresh photos from that trip.

100 years of Finland series - Travel Diary - Tampere, Finland

1-IMG_6537

Tampere is the partner city of my home town and the place that started my love for Finland 10 years ago. Here, I spent my Erasmus study semester and decided to come back year after year to experience more of this beautiful country and its' vibrant culture. I adore Tampere and will always remember it as the first home away from home even though Helsinki has since caught my heart. The city is still under the influence of the industrialization and remnants of that great manufacturing era can still be found everywhere. The red brick stones are a big part of the face of this place and I love the look that reminds me so much of my home town and even London during the industrialization.

100 years of Finland series - Travel Diary - cottage life

The best part of any vacation is the time to relax and for once do nothing. That is what we usually do at a lake in Finland.
