Braided hairstyles & pocket vest dress

Helsinki, 20 degrees


The braid of hair has a great deal of intimacy and personal significance for whomever wears it.

Fall has definitely arrived even though we've enjoyed a beautiful sunny week so far in Helsinki. Actually it's been so sunny that we've reached about 23 degrees during the daytime, and I've still been able to use some of my summery clothes. I had my introduction day at school last Saturday and my first official school day is this Thursday - how exciting! For those of you who missed what studies I'm starting this fall, you can read about it here. For these late summer days, I've loved to use my nude duster vest / button up dress from Monki.

The vest dress is easy to mix with tops, shorts, skirts - you name it!

I've combined it with a braided hairdo with a bun, a black braided belt and beige heel shoes from H&M.


Do you own a vest dress? How do you wear it? What are you most looking forward to this fall?

  3. I think I don't own a vest dress.. at least not something similar to your dress. but I really like the sandy colour of your dress and how it matches with everything else starting from your shoes and ending with the hair. such a simple and lovely late summer ensemble, Elisabeth. btw, the weather has been awesome in Estonia as well and I'm especially thrilled since it turned awesome after our vacation started :P
