Clear crispy cold cottoncandy choir

Helsinki, -8 degrees

Winter is finally getting a hold of Helsinki. Our visitors have been happy to meet snow in the city but today was the first time some mentioned that the wind is beginning to feel too cold. For next week, even -15 degrees is promised, let's see. A clear winter sky always stands for colder weather but it also brings out the sun, unlike e.g. foggy weather, so usually I prefer clear weather, even though it might feel cold. Nothing beats a clear crispy cold winter morning!

Concerning this month's magazine traversal, it's all about color instead of snow white. This spring's style bible, at least if you ask me, is Elle's collections attachment to this month's magazine.

In this month's Olivia magazine though, my attention was caught by blogger Stella Harasek who chose three styles for this month: the colorful minimalist, the glamour chick and the Mad Men woman.

I especially like the colorful outfit, but there's something about the Mad Men outfit as well that strikes me as inspirational! What do you think?

I also loved Olivia's spreads about work outfits since it can sometimes be quite difficult to know "how to dress for the occasion". These clear styles help with solving work outfit related problems. The first outfit is meant for people working in customer service; a comfortable outfit that is still representative!

This style is for the office. I love the knee length skirt!

These on the other hand are suitable for law firms and class rooms, how fun!

And last but not least, the man dominated field and client meetings. I love both of these outfits, they're so classy and colorful!

As icing on the cake, here's this the treat I was talking about: Elle's collections attachment.

Finally shorts are back and suitable even for office work! Yey! Gold continues to spice up the wardrobe even this spring!

My absolute favorite style of the season is this: a summer day in the office. City shorts, a silk shirt and a jacket, all different color - can it be more simple? But it definately works! I'm in love!

And finally, silk scarves turned into dresses! I've been waiting for this fashion trend to become big ever since I saw a similar dress like this in Nice back in 2006-2007.

The so called cottoncandy choir is also worth mentioning, I mean look at the harmony of these outfits. These looks are as sweet as candy! My favorite of the pastel colors is definately the light purple/lavender since it's a newcomer! Join the carnival and have yourself some candy floss!

What's your opinion?

  1. Gorgeous photos! The Elle ones look great - I am already wishing for Spring!
