Autumn

Helsinki, 12 degrees

Nothing is more fleeting than external form, which withers and alters like the flowers of the field at the appearance of autumn.

Today I stepped into our new apartment for the first time since the floor were renovated - and I must say that I'm in love! White floors look so good - they're priceless! I'll make sure to fill you in with photos once we've officially moved in, in the end of this week!!!

My thoughts at work has naturally been wandering, thanks to the move, even though I've been super busy because the first draft of the brochure I'm making had to be ready today! Let's see how much still has to be done to it before it goes to the translators because like I have mentioned to you in earlier posts, it will be translated into a stunning 11 languages!

Autumn has definitely hit the town, and I love the chilly mornings when one sees people with thick scarves and leather gloves. In the afternoon, it still gets relatively warm, around 15 degrees which aren't that bad considering the season. The trees have beautiful colors, oh how I love autumn colors.

Some time ago I was browsing on one of my favorite vintage websites Etsy and I stumbled across this cute autumn flower dress from the 70's! I think this is one of the cutest websites ever since the sellers always write such cute notes when they pack the clothing they send away. This time, the packaging was made out of brown paper and yarn - how charming!


This is how the dress looked on Etsy...


..and this is how I wore it. I combined it with a autumnal bun hairdo that also had a braid.


I got the idea from a brochure I picked up at Glitter where several autumnal hair looks were presented..


How has your week been? How do you change your hairdos during autumn?

  4. You always do the prettiest hair styles, I am thinking (and wishing) that you would do hair-tutorial posts as a special blog series. The dress is a beautiful buy for Fall! Cant wait to see pics of your new apartment.

  5. I love buns but my long and thick hair is sometimes too heavy to wear a proper bun and I get a headache from trying. that's too bad of course. so I don't actually change anything.
    but now about your vintage dress. I really really like the beautiful floral pattern. and your tiny blue earrings go perfectly with the blue'ish flowers. such a lovely autumn look overall!
