Fun in the snow

Hi everyone! These photos are from a while back when we had the first snow of the season. Since it melted pretty fast, I was waiting for another one to post the be weather appropriate, you know. :) It's been around 5-6 degrees and sunny though, with cloudy days in between. Next snow fall does not look anywhere near, so you might as well see them now.

Weekend Snapshots - Pop-up restaurant

Ever heard of Restaurant Day? It's a day when you can open your own restaurant at home, in a park, on the beach or anywhere it is allowed. It happens worldwide on specific days. You can see more details here and here. I was lucky enough to go to one of the pop-up restaurants this week-end and it was so much fun! It is called Trattoria Alberto and it happened in someone's (rather large and nice) house. It seated 25 people in 2 rounds and the food was extremely good!

1. Freshly made focaccia
2. Focaccia and red wine
3. Pasta carbonara
4. A quick peek in the kitchen
5. Pesce e gnocchi
6. Frutta con formaggio

Buon appetito!

Autumn colours and funky sky

Hi everyone!
We've had autumn, a bit of winter and then autumn again here in Finland. This is an outfit from last week, that I didn't get to post. I wasn't planning for the apocalyptic sky, but since it was there...enjoy!

Dress - Dranella, Jacket - JPG Jean's by Gaultier, Shoes - New Yorker, Scarf - local brand

I just realized this jacket is by Gaultier...I also have the matching jeans and I believe the entire suit is vintage. I got it from a small shop in Nice, France and loved it at first sight, as it was the perfect size and jeans-corduroy fabric. The lady there was very nice too, the kind that tells you when something does not fit as it should. Can't wait to pay her a visit again!

See you soon with a winter outfit...snow might be involved! :)
