Me & i: raining hearts

Helsinki, 3 degrees


And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

As I mentioned in my earlier blog post, I'm currently already planning for spring. My wishlist for spring included some clothing both for me & my baby girl from Swedish me&i, and in this post you'll see what I picked up for my baby girl! I think it's suitable to showcase this outfit now, as this is Valentine's Day week and my baby girl's outfit is literally raining hearts!

Kuten mainitsin aikaisemmassa blogikirjoituksessani, niin teen parasta aikaa jo kevätsuunnitelmia. Keväthankintalistaltani löytyi ruotsalaisen me&i:n vaatteita sekä minulle että tyttövauvalleni, ja tässä blogikirjoituksessa esittelen tyttöni uusia vaatteita. Mielestäni tämä ajankohta on kirjoitukselle täydellinen, onhan vielä ystävänpäiväviikko ja tyttöni asu kirjaimellisesti satelee sydämiä!

I don't think that I've mentioned it before but in Finland, we have two names for Valentine's Day as the country has two official languages: it's  ystävänpäivä (Friend's Day) in Finnish and in Swedish, we actually have two variations of the name: vändag (Friend's Day) and alla hjärtans dag (All Hearts Day). The whole concept of a Friend's Day comes from Finland & the Finnish language, and actually, I don't believe there is such a day in Sweden, so even the Swedish variation of this day exists only in Finland. In Sweden the latter Swedish variation is used to mark the day. In Finland, we say Happy Friend's Day to friends, and Happy All Hearts Day to our partners. In that sense, Valentine's Day is a much bigger celebration here, as it includes friends. But actually we like to think that Friend's Day is every day! So Happy Valentine's Day week, dear friends!

Itse ystävänpäivä tuli tänä vuonna vietettyä rakkaiden ihmisten kanssa: aamupäivä vietettiin siskoni ja siskontyttäreni kanssa, lounas hyvien ystävien keskuudessa (yhteensä viisi äitiä ja viisi vauvaa!), ja ilta sulhaseni kanssa! Päivä oli siis täynnä sydämiä! Hyvää ystävänpäiväviikkoa myös sinulle näin blogin kautta!

My baby girl's outfit from me&i's spring collection consists out of gender-neutral clothing in 100% organic cotton: the cutest raining hearts bodysuit and softest raining hearts sweatpants. This is for sure her most comfortable, yet adorable, spring look!

Tyttöni me&i -kevätasukokonaisuus koostuu sekä tytöille että pojille sopivista vauvanvaatteista, jotka ovat 100 % ekopuuvillaa: söpöstä raining hearts -bodysta ja pehmeästä raining hearts -housuista. Tässä on tyttäreni mukavin & suloisin kevätilme!


How do you like to celebrate Valentine's Day? Have you already planned some spring purchases?

Miten itse vietät mieluiten ystävänpäivää? Mitä keväthankintoja olet jo suunnitellut/miettinyt?

  3. aww, what a cute way to showcase little princess's new clothes :) when I saw that heart shaped balloon it immediately reminded me of our family's Valentine's Day photoshoot on Feb 11 but on February 14 we didn't do anything special because I wasn't feeling the best. when it comes to spring purchases I have many fresh thrift finds waiting for warmer days. by the way, I told my husband about the house shelf and he actually loved the idea so we're planning to make it for our new veranda! :)
