Valentino Rockstuds in my mind…

I have been dreaming of these Valentino rockstuds for a while…

Valentino

My husband however persuaded me not to spend my money on ridiculously expensive shoes before our huge move to Australia which in the end was a smart move. I ruin high heels all the time,  they get stuck somewhere and here you go, heels ruined for good, shoes useless. I still could not get these shoes out of my head so when I found similar looking replicas in the store called Office I was at the counter with my credit card faster than the light. I am actually really happy I did not buy the real Valentinos..yet..will be on my shopping list in the future when this pram phase with the toddler is over. As a mummy I hardly ever have a chance to wear these king of ”hot” heels. Anyway, the replicas I found are looking like this and will do it for a while.

I have this vision of maroon clothes and these heels. Will post you later the actual photo of that outfit!

PS. Office has a nice sale on so I recommend for anyone in the UK to have  look at their sale items!

Pastel pink -Pinkkiä pastellia

I have started to like pastel colours again. Last spring and summer it was all about strong colours but this season is dedicated to soft and light colours. I was looking for a statement shirt but couldn’t find the one that pleases me but this lovely pinkish beige shirt with blue prints captured my eye. I was wearing this outfit when I hit the town with my sister last weekend 🙂 Have to say I really like this simple combination.

I hope you are all having a great weekend. We are having a BBQ with our friends today!! It is supposed to be 20 centigrade and sunny! It is mother’s day today here in England although I don’t know how to celebrate it as it is not a mother’s day in Finland. I think as a Finnish mother I need to celebrate mother’s day on Finnish date 🙂 I have a cake, champagne and BBQ but that is all 🙂

Spring time heels 2014-Kevään korot 2014

I know this would happen to me. Now when I am back to work I just cannot resist some shopping. I am not buying the things I need but the things I want! My latest purchase has been two pairs of high heels. I too often wear only black heels with some colourful clothes which lately has started to feel a bit too boring. To change this I bought cute blue high heels that would go perfectly with beige or pink and beige high heels that would go nicely with white, blue and pretty much any clothes. Beige heels will bring brightness to the look and they are the must have this spring, where ever you wonder you will see them in every store! Pastel colours and beige heels are this spring fashion.

I bought my heels from Clarks. I know some people think it is a boring store but I walk a lot and I want to be able to walk all day in my heels if needed and Clarks shoes can make it happen. I have never gotten blisters or sore feet from their shoes. Clarks used to be a lot more boring brand but within the past couple of years they have really put a lot of effort in their design and I think they have super stylish shoes these days!

The shoes below are the ones that I am craving for this summer..What do you think, pretty nice. I am so in love with the strong neon yellow at the moment, I would love to have a bag with black, white and neon yellow colours too!

This weekend I will post you a recipe I promise.  I have been so busy and no time for baking or cooking (only shopping !). I am planning to bake a chocolate caramel popcorn cake for Sunday when our friends are coming to play some tennis and to have some BBQ . If (and hopefully when) the cake is a success I will share the recipe with you  so… watch this place!

White, camel and navy – Valkoista, kamelia ja sinistä

I love white trousers. I think they spice up the look with blonde hair without many accessories. In London they are however very tricky. It rains a lot all year long so by wearing white you always take a risk of getting rained (and mud) on!

Here is an outfit that I really like, very casual, smart but brightens up the day with white, camel and navy combination. The white bird necklace is my absolute favourite. I bought it in a small design store in Shoreditch.

When I was younger I remember trying to wear as skinny clothes as possible to show my figure. Now it makes me laugh a lot -how silly- as I do prefer a bit more wider cuts these days that do not reveal my body line inch by inch. I still love skinny trousers but with them I think looser shirts look a lot better than too giving ones. This shirt is one of my new favourite and was also a find in sales. It is from the store called Sting.

I have recommended Sting store you before and I do think it is a great one. It has a lot of American street style but also very feminine clothes with unique cuts and unusual features on them. Check it out if you can they have a store at least in London and in Belgium, Germany and Netherlands.

Here is the look that makes me on Spring time mood!IMG_20140106_141303
