I’m still working on my masterpiece

(Suomeksi alla)

The title of this post is a great way to describe my style and what kind of clothes I like. It seems my tastes are ever changing and I’m constantly drawn to some new styles. Even though I was drawn to them, I honestly thought these trousers from George would be hideous and pj-looking on me, but I am SO GLAD I gave them a try – heels do the trick again, and actually my legs look longer than ever in these. I teamed them up with this amazing oversized shirt from Evans (got it in navy too, which you will see soon I’m sure) and my boohoo+ trench. And along with the trousers, this darker lipstick is also kind of new for me – but I love it!








Coat / Takki*: 24, boohoo+ | Shirt / Paita*: 26-28, Evans | Trousers / Housut*: 24, George at ASDA (similarsimilar) | Shoes / Kengät: New Look (similar) | Necklace / Kaulakoru*: Freedom at Topshop (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Drama Lip Pencil in Berry Much

Tämän postauksen otsikko (käännettynä jotakuinkin ‘mestariteokseni on vielä työn alla’) on loistava tapa kuvailla tyyliäni ja sitä, millaisista vaatteista tykkään. Makuni tuntuu olevan koko ajan muuttuva, ja uusia, kiinnostavia juttuja osuu silmään usein. Vaikka nämä minua kiinnostivatkin, niin rehellisesti kuvittelin näiden George-housujen olevan päälläni järkyttävät pyjama-housut, mutta olen NIIN ILOINEN, että kokeilin – korkojen lisääminen auttoi taas asiaa, ja jalkani näyttävät pidemmiltä kuin koskaan. Lisäsin asuun tämän aivan huipun paidan Evans:ilta (haalin sen muuten myös tummansinisenä, joka varmasti tulee näkymään täällä pian) ja boohoo+ trenssini. Ja housujen lisäksi yleisen tyylini ulkopuolelta oli myös tämä tumma huulipuna – mutta tykkään!

Blooming Spring

(Suomeksi alla)

I’m all about oversized items these days, and since I got this amazing Carmakoma shirt from Evans and these George culottes, I was toying with the idea of pairing them together. I added the heels to the outfit because I think they are the glue to this working, in flats I would just look too frumpy.. basically my legs are way too short for me to use culottes without heels ;).

The floral shirt paired with my new favourite lipstick was a perfect combination to get me in the right mood for spring – bring on the warmth!









Shirt / Paita*: XL, Carmakoma via Evans | Culottes*: 20, George at ASDA (similar) | Shoes / Kengät: New Look (same in burgundy) | Clutch / Laukku*: Biba at House of Fraser (similar) | Necklace / Kaulakoru*: Freedom at Topshop (similar, similar) | Rings / Sormukset*: Freedom at Topshop (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna*: Maybelline Color Sensational in 418, Peach Poppy

Ylisuuret vaatteet on tällä hetkellä ihan lemppareitani, kuten varmasti olette huomanneet. Joten heti kun sain tämän Carmakoma-paidan Evans:ilta, niin halusin yhdistää sen näihin George culotteihin. Lisäsin asuun korkeat kengät, ja ne ovat mielestäni juuri se juju joka saa tämän asun toimimaan.. jalkani ovat aivan liian lyhyet käyttämään culotteja ilman korkkareita ;).

Mutta joo, tämä kukkakuosinen paita ja uusi lemppari huulipunani oli täydellinen yhdistelmä saamaan minut kevät-fiiliksille – lisää aurinkoa ja lämpöä kiitos! (Huom. Huulipuna on Maybelline Color Sensational sävy Peach Poppy, jota käsittääkseni ei ole vielä ainakaan julkaistu Suomessa – mutta toivottavasti pian.)

Junarose: April

(Suomeksi alla)

As you probably know, I’m one of the blogger ambassadors for the Danish brand Junarose (more about it in this post), and as a part of that I get to pick a few items from them every month. In April I went for this lace top jumpsuit. And yeah, I do know that April was ages ago, but better late than never – May post is coming soon as well ;).

This jumpsuit is jersey, and feels amazingly comfy on. It’s soft and relaxed, but still very beautiful, thanks to the lace details. I finished the outfit with a watermelon bag, pointed pumps and red lipstick, of course.








Jumpsuit / Haalari*: XXL, Junarose | Bag / Laukku*: George at ASDA (similar) | Shoes / Kengät: Next (similar) | Lipstick / Huulipuna: Lumene Wild Rose Lipstick SPF15 in Smiling Lips

Niinkuin varmaan tiedätte, olen yksi tanskalaisen Junarosen bloggeri-lähettiläistä (lisätietoa englanniksi tässä postauksessa), ja osana tätä ohjelmaa saan joka kuukausi valita pari tuotetta heiltä. Huhtikuussa valitsin ainoastaan tämän pitsi-koristeisen haalarin. Ja joo, huhtikuu oli aikoja sitten, mutta parempi myöhään kuin ei milloinkaan – toukokuun postaus on myös tulossa pian ;).

Tämä haalari on trikoota, ja aivan törkeän ihana päällä! Pehmeä ja rento, mutta silti todella kaunis tuon pitsisen osionsa johdosta. Lisäsin asuun söpön vesimeloni-laukun, suippokärkiset kengät, ja tietty punaista huulipunaa.

Double Vision: Lane Bryant

Hey lovelies,

This is the most exciting post I’ve done in a while, maybe ever. I’m sure if you are a regular reader you have noticed that Dani of DIY Fatshion and me are totally great friends. We met on Tumblr even before we started our blogs, and she is definitely one of my BFF’s, even though she is in Texas and I’m in London. So I’m sure you can imagine how much we want to meet and hang out for real, right? We have been thinking and dreaming and planning for ages, and now it will finally come true! We have been saving money, rented an apartment and finally bought our flights this week.. and both of us are flying to New York for Full Figured Fashion Week 2013! I’m seriously crazy excited, I can’t wait to meet Dani, go to my favourite city again, and of course meet other bloggers and go to FFFW events. Whooooo!

So, that brings me to this special Double Vision! In this challenge Dani and I are choosing a theme, item, movie character.. whatever we come up with basically, and style those our own way and post at the same time, more about the challenge here. This week we are wearing Lane Bryant, and there is an exciting reason why. Both of us were chosen to take part in Lane Bryant Blogger Conference at FFFW, and as a part of the invitation we were given $200 gift card to purchase an outfit that will be featured in a style challenge at Lane Bryant Facebook page. Lane Bryant has had an amazing ‘Buy one, get one free’-event this week, and I’m slightly jealous to the US bloggers who could go to the store to get their outfits.. haha (if you live in the US, you still have time until the end of today to use this discount). Since I live in the UK, I could choose items worth $200 from the site, and the lovely Lindsey from Lane Bryant kindly sent them to me. I chose a grey t-shirt with amazing neon yellow lace shoulder details, black jeggings, GORGEOUS nude peep toe heels with neon yellow accents and cool wayfarer sunnies. And from my own closet I added a bright coral lippy, nude/coral clutch and spike necklace with neon yellow accents. I think this is a really nice way to mix neutrals and neons, and I think this t-shirt and the heels will become my wardrobe favourites this summer!
