I was wearing my mink stole on Sunday. We celebrated Christmas early since many of us will be away for the holidays. The stole is old and my Mom got it from our Canadian side of the family. It is now somehow in my posession. It's gorgeous but there's not many occasions to wear it. It is also badly in need of repair: the lining is coming apart (you can even see it in the photo at the back of my neck). The dress is thrifted, originally from Rils. I love their dresses! The gold necklace used to belong to my grandma and the gold earrings are from India.

Here I am wearing the raspberry scarf that I knitted. The down jacket is from Sisley. I got it on a freezing-cold winter trip to Italy (Verona, I think?). I am also wearing my signature beret. It is now minus 15 degrees Celcius in Helsinki so we really need these warm clothes. Luckily, my husband and I take off for 2 months in Goa in just over a week. So you can expect to see lots of summer looks in this blog in the near future.

This is another of my ab fave blogs! And she's now doing a series called "reader dig explained". I asked her what to wear for my upcoming trip to Goa and she created this inspiring piece of artwork just for my benefit. Sweet!
So I am now officially the Pink Lady who winters in Goa! ;-)

This photo of a guest bedroom concludes the series on this gorgeous house. I love it so much that I feel I could just move in and feel right at home - I would not need to change anything.
Scanned from a magazine.
I read the magazine article where these photos are taken from and the house is a former stable block built in 1730. The owner is Jamaican-born John Pringle. So this is indeed a man's house. It seems that I share his tastes since I find everything in his house delectable!

My idea of a perfect breakfast: capuccino, croissant & fresh OJ - well, close to fresh, it's really Tropicana orange juice. Not the healthiest option in the world perhaps but I simply love it. The only thing missing is some fresh berries but you can't have it all...

Love this look, as seen in the Finnish magazine Gloria. This was an article presenting model Mia Frilander's personal style.
Great Burberry coat (I have a similar one in light pink) and gorgeous shoes - I want a pair!
Love the colour of this sweater, as seen on this blog:
I have taken up knitting, so I am now looking at knits with a different eye, i.e. I am getting ideas for what to knit next...

My favourite fashion blog - the one that I always check first - is Rumi Neely's Fashion Toast. A beautiful girl with a beautiful blog and, above all, an amazing sense of style.

This gorgeous photo is also from Hanneli. Love the shredded sweater...so now we know what to do to sweaters that start to get worn down or that we get bored with.

A gorgeous photo of Sarah Jessica Parker (one of my fave actors) from another great fashion blog:
In spite of her Finnish name, Hanneli Mustaparta is Norwegian.
I love, love, LOVE this photo. It's scanned from a Finnish fashion mag (I now forget which one). This is Finnish model Rosa Korhonen.
I love everything about this photo: including her leather shorts, her total look, her pose, the pile of mags on the floor and the background. This photo is just perfection!!
This gorgeous photo is from one of my all-time fave fashion blogs:
I love everything about this photo, but especially the girl's legs! Makes me want to get to the gym... :-)

I love this look from H&M. However, in Finland it's no longer possible to wear these types of outfits. It's a bit depressing to look at Fashion Blogs when it seems to be so much warmer than in Finland absolutely everywhere. The only blog that features clothes for this type of weather is Style by Kling, since Elin lives in Stockholm.
The photo is scanned from H&M magazine.
This is taken from the window of our apartment in Kallio, Helsinki, Finland. I am currently taking a photography class and I am showing off my new-found skills in this photo. You have to use the manual settings of the camera to get this photo since there is such a stark contract between the sky and the dark roof. If I had used the automatic settings, the roof would just have been all black.
