Late summer colors: Grey & beige

Helsinki, 19 degrees


I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.

As I've already returned to work after my short summer holiday (as I've mentioned before, I've chosen this year to divide my holidays into two, having the latter one only in October to make the fall feel shorter), I've noticed that my thoughts have started to wander towards fall. We still reach about 20 degrees on a daily basis in Helsinki, but I've as of now began to think about my fall wardrobe. One of my most recent purchases has been this grey and beige felt hat that symbolizes the two colors that are inspiring my right now, besides white that I presented in my earlier blog post here. I think all (especially Finnish!) girls must own at least one dress by Marimekko as the label is by far the best known Finnish fashion brand! I finally have my first dress hanging in my closet so the collecting can begin! I love Marimekko's timeless dresses and this multi-colored triangle dress is just my cup of tea!

Palattuani töihin (päätin jaksoittaa lomiani niin, että pidin nyt kesällä vain kaksi viikkoa kesälomaa ja loput lomapäivistä pidän vasta lokakuussa), olen jo alkanut miettiä syyspukeutumista. Vaikka lämpömittari Helsingissä nousee noin 20 asteeseen päivittäin, mietin jo syysvaatekaappiani. Yksi uusimmista ostoksistani onkin harmaa ja beige huopahattu, jokaedustaa hyvin suosikkivärini tällä hetkellä. Harmaan ja beigen lisäksi valkoinen viehättää minua yhä kuten tässä blogikirjoituksessa kerroin. Mielestäni jokaisella tytöllä pitäisi olla kaapissa ainakin yksi Marimekko. Löysin aleista omani ja nyt se koristaa vaatekaappiani. Marimekko-kokoelmani on siis saanut alkunsa! Tämä ajaton kolmio- ja monivärimekko oli heti makuuni.

  1. I am in love with the hat and this Marimekko dress! I have heard about the brand before, but never bought a Marimekko dress, and now I am eager to, cause this dress you are wearing is lovely, so creative, the pattern is so cool, I loved it! I think you look very pretty and may a nice collection start!
