Best of Photography - Finland edition

1-IMG_5094

As we are making our way to Finland on the Finnlines ferry from Travemünde to Helsinki, I wanted to share some of my favourite pictures from our last trip in summer 2016. We love this peaceful and quiet country to relax and just log off from all things work and daily stressful life.

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!

100 years of Finland series - Blue and White outfit

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.

Relaxed weekend attire

1-IMG_4486

Weekend outfits are my favourites as they are so relaxed and effordless. Definitely like to dress up, but sometimes it is good to not think about it too much. A denim combo is always a great idea and I paired some definite favourites with this look.

Pink Bohemian

1-IMG_3452

As I love this tree and its' blossoms, I just had to take more photos with it. It's the last for this year, promise! This dress is a new find and has been a pretty good one as I have searched for a nice maxi dress in a dark blue shade with short sleeves. Often, those summer maxi dresses just come with little straps and that's just not working for my office attire. We do have a pretty loose dress code, but too much cleavage just isn't ok for a teacher. Therefore, this one is a total keeper. I have paired it with my pink leather jacket here, but actually don't like the length with the dress and prefer my denim jacket, which sits more on my natural waist and not on my hips. A lot more flattering.
