WEEKEND SNAPS
Hey peeps! Here's a few snapshots I would like to share with you, I've taken these photos during the last few weekends that have gone by. This week, I've been feeling a little under the weather which can quite well be noticed in the recent lack of posts here on Arctic Vanilla. Rather sooner than later, as I will bounce back from the flu, the blog will be updated as usual. Really looking forward to that! The last two weekends I have spent celebrating in different wedding-related events. Last weekend, my charming friend and his fiancé got married which we celebrated with a three-course dinner in a lovely, Michelin-star restaurant here in Helsin ...

RIPPED JEANS
Without no further ado, here is the outfit I promised you yesterday which you got a little foretaste of in the previous post. Naturally, I've also written the outfit details in this post and you'll be able to find them below. Tässä sen pidemmittä puheitta teille eilen lupailemani asu, josta siis jo yhden kuvan verran esimakua saatiinkin. Asupostauksen tuotetiedot olen tietysti kirjoittanut postaukseen myöskin, ja ne löydät alempaa. Heels - Aldo Bag - Rebecca Minkoff Top & ripped jeans - H&M Lipstick - Lady Danger by M.A.C. Nailpolish - Fifth Avenue by Essie Wishbone necklace - Jennifer Zeuner

PRINTED TUNIC
Here's an outfit we photographed this weekend. When it comes to this printed tunic, I adore the cute cut, not to mention its versatility. At the store the lovely saleslady pondered how the tunic goes so well with both high heels and even sneakers or boots for a more casual look (okay, it's pretty much in their job description). Still, I couldn't agree more. Tässä viikonlopuna kuvattua päivän asua. Ihastuin kuvissa näkyvään printtitunikaan sen hauskan leikkauksen ja monikäyttöisyyden vuoksi. Kaupassa myyjäkin hehkutti (okei, se on niiden työtä), miten tunika sopii ihanasti niin korkkareiden kuin arkisempien tennareiden tai bootsienkin kanssa. ...

WANDERLUST
Even though fall was, at one stage of my life at least, my favorite season, longing for a sunny holiday in the autumn time usually is what ends up happening. Despite the fact that I enjoy my work and all the related everyday routines very much, a short vacation under the sun would be more than welcome. Vaikka syksy oli, jossain vaiheessa ainakin suosikkivuodenaikani, ja nautin suuresti työstäni sekä arkipäivän rutiineista, kuuluu lomalle haikailu syyssäillä kai asiaan. Kun ulkona sataa eikä hämärä väisty valon tieltä päivälläkään, olisi lyhytkin täsmäisku aurinkoon enemmän kuin tervetullut. Here I've collected some of my favorite travel-r ...

STRIPED SKIRT
Hope you all have had a lovely beginning for a new week! Here's a preview on an outfit we shot yesterday. Did you guys have a great weekend? We spent our Saturday night playing sing star with a bunch of our closest friends. I think it was up to 2 years since the last time playing the singing game and, as far as I'm concerned, the lack of practice was pretty much obvious. Ehdoton sing star -bravuurini on Natalie Imbruglian Torn, kappaletta ei kuitenkaan tällä kertaa löytynyt biisivalikoimasta. Loistavassa seurassa aika kuluu nopeasti, niin tälläkin kertaa. Suurkiitos P ja M tämän syksyisen piristyksen järjestämisestä! Ihanaa viikonalkua kaiki ...

SOMEDAY HOME
After living several years in different cities, my boyfriend and I ended up moving under the same roof in the beginning of this summer. Combining two different styles, when it comes to interior design at least, isn't exactly as straightforward as one might imagine.  One day after the move, the whole decor of our apartment was pretty much a chaos. In the summertime, neither of us were interested in devoting time to renovating our home. But now as it's autumn and we get to spend a little more time at home, it has now become time to put the matter back on the agenda. Vietettyämme useamman vuoden etäsuhteessa kannoimme poikaystäväni kanssa kesän ...

WIDE-LEG TROUSERS
Even though we're already living on Tuesday of a brand-new week, it might not yet be too late to reminisce about the past weekend? On Saturday night, we hopped on a ferryboat, and after quite a short sea voyage, we jumped off the float back on dry land on an island called Lonna. Vaikka uutta viikkoa mennään jo tiistaissa, ei liene vielä liian myöhäistä palata hetkeksi muistelemaan viikonloppua? Lauantai-iltana hyppäsimme lauttaan Helsingin kauppatorilta, ja lyhyen merimatkan jälkeen päästiin takaisin kuivalle maalle noustessamme Lonna-saaren laituriin. Shades - Ray-Ban Necklace - Jennifer Zeuner Nails - Licorice by Essie Bag - Rebecca ...

ALL-TIME FAVORITE BLOGS OF MINE
1.) 5 Inch and Up by Sandra Hagelstam Even though the numbered order doesn't necessarily reflect my personal ranking of the blogs, I gladly chose to begin the listing with the most internationally distinguished Finnish fashion blogs. 5 Inch and Up is definitely among the most professional personal style blogs in Finland. Sandra seems to take everything she does whole-heartedly, and that's one of the reasons I can't wait for the launch of her River Island shoe collection. Vaikkei numerojärjestys tietyn blogin paremmuutta suhteessa toiseen heijastelisikaan, halusin aloittaa listauksen suomalaisella, kansainvälisen tason huippublogeihin kuuluv ...
