Zara Tie Dye Print T-shirt

Here is the newest addition to my closet, the Zara tie dye print t-shirt (more like blouse if you ask me :D)

My poor little camera is trying its hardest to take good pictures and the gloomy weather outside sure isn't helping.

Zara limited edition glasses

Here is one of the things I got yesterday at Zara... these babies are the limited edition glasses in toffee (also available in ivory)

 I'm absolutely in love with the subtle cat-eye model!

Detail of the day

Just got back home from a lovely day out on town with a friend. I'll upload pictures of what I got in the coming days, but in the meantime here is a snap of what I wore today. Black blazer is from Zara (old), grey t-shirt also from Zara and the scarf is by Athena Procopiou from her collection "the enchanted wood".

Apologies for the lack of posting. These past few weeks have been very busy but things are back to normal now and I promise to post more often.
On my way to the gym yesterday, typical crappy overcast weather
 Bought a bagel with cured salmon on my way back home. I don't think I've ever told you this but I'm obsessed with cured salmon, I think I could live on that stuff...
 Not a cloud in the sky today! So nice to have a few sunny days, it feels so much more like spring.
Spent all afternoon lounging in the sun reading British Vogue.

Under the mulberry tree

Oh how I adore the Mulberry Taylor satchel. The bag is available in three different sizes and colors (seen above) for more details visit the Mulberry website. For a closer look at the bag check out this video by the fabulous Tanya Burr.

Hey everyone! Sorry for not posting in a week. I've been busy with work lately, actually had my first shift today at 6:00 (and that's AM if anyone was wondering). So needless to say I didn't get much sleep last night but I'll be back to regular blogging tomorrow.

outfit of the day... kind of

I had a job interview today and decided to take some pictures on my way back home
 Gasp! She wore jeans to a job interview! Haha it's probably the no. 1 don't when it comes to dressing for a job interview but it turned out just fine since even the interviewer was wearing jeans. The jeans were accompanied by the white silky Zara shirt I just blogged about as well as the navy Zara gathered sleeve blazer I bought a few weeks ago.
The coat that you can see a glimpse of is a quilted coat by Barbour.
 My trusted Zara tote got the important task of holding all of my bits and bobs 
As far as jewelry goes I kept it simple and only wore my favorite MK watch

Zara white silk top

Here's what I got the other day from Zara... not really that exciting cause it's only a white top. Anyway I really like it because it has a very silky feel to it (in other words 100% polyester) so it's a perfect alternative to the everyday cotton t-shirt.
 The top is in a size L which doesn't really bother me that much since it's supposed to fit loosely. Of some reason the Zara stores  here in Helsinki always seem to run out of S and M and then never really restock.
(sorry the photos turned out really grey, no amount of light exposure or brightness adjustment could fix it)

Pastel Perfection

Pastel heels by Din Sko, a great way to incorporate this summers pastel trend in your outfits, especially if you aren't feeling terribly daring. Oh and the best part, they're only 34,90€

Weekend shopping

I went downtown today as I was in desperate need for some Boot Buffer for my Hunter wellies, which I'll do a post on later.
 Stopped by Zara and tried on some lovely summer dresses
Left these two beauties at the store but I did end up getting a white silky t-shirt which I'll post some pictures of later.
Picked up the rice and wheat volumizing shampoo from Kiehl's and got a whole bunch of samples including olive fruit oil conditioner, ultra facial cream and midnight recovery concentrate.

Nike running tights

Not wanting my motivation to dwindle I bought myself some new workout gear the other day. I've never really been the one for heavy sweatpants I just feel like they weigh me down. Plus they become really uncomfortable once you start to sweat as they don't breathe whatsoever.
 So here are my new Nike running tights! They are full length and come with all the standard features, drawstring, zip pocket in back, zippers as well as reflectors on each leg etc. One thing to keep in mind with Nike is that besides the size of the pants (mine are M) they also have three different leg lengths (short, regular, tall) 
Dri-fit technology to keep me dry

For the love of the loafer

My love for the loafer goes way back. Ballerinas might be incredibly comfortable but the lack of structure and support make my wide flat feet (it doesn't get much worse than that) tire rather quickly.
These guys make some of the coolest loafers I've seen in both velvet and linen. Oh and if you can't find one that's just right you can customize your own.
 Two of my favorites, both in a simple neutral color
But at $400 a pop, I quickly bid farewell to these babies... 

 Not to worry! my heart does not go aching for too long
say hello to my new babies! the Leroc loafers by Vagabond

Zara messenger bag strap

Some of you have been wondering about the strap on my new Zara bag. In my previous post I actually forgot to tell you that I'd shortened it.
 This is what the bag looked like when I bought it. Even though I did like the long messenger style strap I wanted something shorter.
 Open the buckle...
 and simply move it over to the other side.

 Obviously you don't want the other end of the strap hanging out so all you have to do is...
 Tuck it through to loop and into the bag and VOILA! 
And for anyone who was wondering, at its longest the strap measures at about 100 cm (about 40 inches for you kids across the pond)

3 snaps

 Nice and early wake up today only to discover that it has snowed over night
 Time to hit the gym! My friend and I've made a deal to get into shape before graduation. It's a lot easier to stay motivated when you workout with a friend. 
Bought some pastrami/pasta salad for lunch and I'm now sitting at home browsing my favorite blogs
