Pair Up: Shorts and a Clutch

 

My brother just sent me a snap from Central Finland where it is currently snowing (?), so I truly hope everyone’s had a great May Day weekend despite the prevailing circumstances. But I cannot help it – summer pieces are already on my mind. I’ve always sworn by the classic Levi’s 501 cut-offs look, but this summer I am planning to try something different and find a pair of tailored shorts, both TOTÊME and CHLOÈ offer a great selection.

A snapshott from the past week – it was probably the last occasion when wearing a long coat was required, just bring on the sun please!

The Row Pre-Fall 2017

 

Monday demands sharp sartorial inspiration to which THE ROW responds with a 90s inspired Pre-Fall 2017 collection. The label’s refined elegance is as pared back as ever, but rightly so because I don’t think these pieces need anything in addition to create desire. If I could, I’d have them all, thank you.

Dior J’adior

 

 

I’ve been eyeing these J’ADIOR by DIOR slingback shoes (also the flat ones) for a while, and I am sure many of you have as well. At first I was not sure whether I actually like them or if my sensibilities have been affected by the current hype, but over the years I’ve come to a conclusion that lying to yourself is the worst thing one could potentially do. So here I am, confessing my addiction.

To be realistic, I don’t think these shoes will appear in my closet any time soon, if ever, because I have way too many other pairs on my wish list. At least I can keep on admiring them from afar.

New Season’s Mood Board

 

I have been lacking fresh inspiration for sometime, so I created a mood board for the rest of the season – like always, this simple practise brings everything back to basics.

I am currently inspired by neutral tones when it comes to getting dressed. I watched one of my all-time favourite films, Out of Africa, last night probably for the fifth time, and now I could not be more inspired by the beautiful colours and sense of calm. I am also dreaming of a summer vacation, but I’ve been thinking of going somewhere different in the summer, maybe to the Canary Islands. I haven’t been there since I was a child, but apparently the vibe has changed and the scenery delivers. Anyone been lately? I would obviously bring my favourite swimwear by MATTEAU SWIM with me.
