Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music.

Helsinki, 22 degrees

Summer has definately arrived in Helsinki! Today lunching in the Esplanade Park with my special someone, I couldn't help but thinking about this song by Billie Holiday. Livin' felt easy! The soft wind blowing through my hair, the sun shining, the wonderful company, the happy people that fill my wonderful city - what could be better? Later on today I even ended up having a part of a meeting outside in the sunshine. What luxury.

I found this stunning editorial that had a similar theme - sweet life, and thought I would share the grand feeling with you dear readers as well! Even though these beautiful photos are set in Italy, I experienced the same feeling in Helsinki. Sometimes feelings transcends country limits.


Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh your Daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin'
So hush little baby, and don't you cry

One of these mornings
You're goin' to rise up singing
Yes you'll spread your wings
And you'll take to the sky
But till that morning
There's a nothin' can harm you
With daddy and mammy standin' by

Summertime and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh your Daddy's rich and your ma is good lookin;
So hush little baby, baby don't you cry
Oh don't you cry
Oh don't you cry  

My favorite color right now is definately white, since it's perfect for summer temperatures, don't you think? Linen as material is the best, but everything airy is good!

My latest purchase is this white dress by H&M. I love the details: golden buttons and front pockets. Besides this piece, I'm in love with lace tops and floral dresses right now! How about you?
