My favourite thing to do in the summer

When the meter hits +26 Celcius, the city is not the best place to be. So I decided to cool off on Sunday and Monday at my parent's place in the "country side" (about 6km off the center of Tampere). We had a small barbecue and just shook off the tiredness of the weekend's heavy partying.

My absolute favourite thing of all summer is to lay in the sun and read magazines or a good book. As I love looking at catwalk books and they usually cost a fortune, I bought the Elle collections which is a good package for its price. I also bought the YSL collections of 1957-2002 magazine/book since past decades fashion pictures are really hard to find. I warmly recomend this to anyone interested in vintage clothing. For all you denim addicts, check out this month's WAD.

As for my work outfit I wore the H&M Trend puffy skirt with a houndstooth sleeveless turtleneck; a shirt that I, don't know why, have not worn in a long time.

Shirt: Cheap Monday
Skirt: H&M Trend
Shoes: Björn Borg

I also popped at the local Salvation Army and I made amazing finds! Some have to be modified a little but some are just great as they are. This Salvation Army is a true gem, not so many people know about it, so the best items are still hanging on the racks. I will show my findings later.

Tomorrow I'm heading to Stockholm to do some shopping and meet my relatives, so I will be back with new clothes next week. See you then!

Lehtifriikki taas täällä kyselee ;). Mistä ostit L'Officielin? Lehtipisteen mukaan myyvät kahta erilaista: L'Officiel 1000 Models ja L'Officiel De La Couture. Ei taida olla kumpikaan noista? Pakko saada ;D!

I would give anything for the weather in Singapore to be 26 degrees. Now, it's averaging 34 degrees. Thank God for air conditioning.

Olet kyllä ihanan aidosti persoonallinen pukeutuja. Asukuvasi ovat raikkaita ja mielenkiintoisia. Piristävää. Luontevaa. Parasta :)
