Make 2021 Your Best Year Yet

LIFE WON’T SPARKLE UNLESS YOU DO.
In collaboration with Chicwish

Dress up and dance

Another year. Spend it well. Let your faith be bigger than your fear. Dare to dream and dare to make your dreams reality. Dress up and dance. Have a laugh. Become a happier version of yourself. Find something to be grateful for. Love unconditionally.

Let go of your limitations

You can have your ego, or you can have your dreams. Do more things that scare you. Stop telling yourself no way, and instead find a way, create a way. Do whatever it takes and decide to really live this year.

I can do anything, and anything, and anything...

“I’m going to make everything around me beautiful – that will be my life.” – Elsie de Wolfe

This quote has been on my fridge for years. It inspires me. I think it’s a good reminder that the power to make a beautiful life is in my own hands. And for you the power to create a beautiful life for yourself and your loved ones – is in your hands. Never forget how powerful you are. This year create a life you cannot wait to wake up to.

Live unapologetically

Write the story you want to live. You are stronger than you know and you’re more beautiful than you think. Speak gently to yourself, know your worth. It is not who you are that holds you back, it’s what you think you are not.

Darling, shine

Isn’t it lovely to be with someone whose energy empowers you and lights you up inside? There was a time when I didn’t believe in myself that much. I didn’t believe I’m beautiful and I didn’t think that I had the right to embrace my own beauty. Now when I think about it, it makes me a little sad. About two years ago, a dear friend of mine from Norway, wrote to me that I should use my beauty and talent in fashion and go for it fully. She empowered me to believe in myself and to follow and honor my vision, my own truth.

And so, I want to encourage you, to believe in yourself, to go after your dreams, to see the beauty in you, in others and in the world, to stay in your light and to start enjoying life’s simple graces. You’re needed in this world.

Have a beautiful, fabulous and cheerful year ahead!

Welcome 2021 / Have a Sweet and Fabulous Year Ahead

THE CELEBRATION STARTS NOW!
In collaboration with Chicwish.

Dressed to party

The New Year is around the corner and soon we will wave goodbye to 2020. Many of us need to celebrate the big night differently than before (read: social distancing at home). But I think an intimate house party or a virtual party and a dose of glamour sounds like a great plan.

This year I’m adding a bit of sophistication and positivity to my New Year’s outfit in the form of a fancy jacquard skirt and a shiny golden top. Midnight blue hue goes perfectly with warm and shimmery gold making the outfit look festive. What are your plans to wear to wear for NYE?

Turn wishes into reality

After this overwhelming year with so much change, I would like to hear some positive things that happened to you during 2020. Share your good news or achievement that made you happy and grateful. When you start thinking of how you’ve succeeded, you may notice that there are many positive things that happened to you. I’ve been thinking about the past twelve months, the ups and downs, especially concentrating on the good things that happened. The world you see is created by what you focus on, so I’m focusing to see the good. One great achievement for me and my family was selling our house last summer and moving to the area we were dreaming to live, it felt so awesome and I’m still so very grateful to live here.

I hope you all can welcome the 2021 with a grateful heart, trusting that it will be good for you and your loved ones, living in the present moment, without fear, doing your best in every situation, showing love to people who are meaningful to you, making every day a decision that you will make it a good day, being the best version of yourself in each day of the coming year.

Sending all my warmest wishes to you and your loved ones! Have a sweet, cheerful, blissful and fabulous New Year!

“What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives haven’t even happened yet.” – Anne Frank

Fresh Styling Tricks That Will Make You Feel 100 Times Cooler

In collaboration with Revoel.

Championing the athleisure look

Sportswear has become universally stylish and an important part of a modern wardrobe that you can wear not only at the gym but absolutely anywhere with absolutely anything.

I wanted to show you how to create a stylish street style look with this sporty top while also bringing joy to an outfit with a juicy color scheme from head to toe. You know that I’m really into colors and especially the ones that make you feel happy, like vibrant orange, which I think is one of the happiest and warmest colors you can wear. Here I paired a bright orange top with light blue jeans. Without a doubt, this color combo always makes a perfect match. 


Glam up your bike shorts!

These are my first bike shorts after so many years, I think I was 13 when I wore these kinds of shorts last time. But here I am again, wearing these sporty pieces totally differently than ever before.

I love how versatile bike shorts are, they can be styled so many cool ways. As you know, I like my looks to have a little bit of glam and that was exactly how I wanted to style these shorts too. When you think about bike shorts, glamour isn’t the first thing that comes into your mind and that’s why I wanted to show you how to make them look effortlessly polished and chic. I paired my shorts with an oversized chunky sweater and high heels. For a polished look, another option is to pair them with a structured blazer.

Top and shorts are from a sustainable fashion brand Revoel. It’s a female owned Finnish brand which has just launched their first sportswear collection. Their qualified products are designed and handmade in Finland from recycled fabrics.

Have you already mixed practical sportswear with more formal looks? Wishing you all an inspiring and lovely day!

Found My Winter Coats. Have You Found Yours?

In collaboration with Chicwish.

A beautiful coat is the secret of looking polished during the winter.

A good coat can become a wardrobe hero throughout winter. These vibrant colored wrap coats look stylish, feel comfortable and make me feel ready to pose for a winter catalogue. They’re both versatile to wear and can be styled up or down. Figure-flattering design frames the body shape beautifully by accentuating the waist.

Turtlenecks are my winter basics, they go perfectly with jeans or skirts and are great for winter’s layered looks!

Wishing you all have a fabulous December!

The Fancy Color Combination to Wear This Winter

TIME TO TRY SOMETHING NEW.

This color combo has really been inspiring me lately!

I’m all about bright colors, but every fall as the weather starts getting colder, my eyes starts wandering to those deeper fall colors. I still like to brighten up my fall looks with a fun color pop, the cheerful ones that make you feel happy. Pairing bright hues to muted and dark fall colors is a perfect way to transform your summer clothing into winter.

A color combination I’m excited for right now is pairing bright green with black. This is definitely one of my go to color combo this fall. It’s a color combo I haven’t worn much before and I just love how unexpected and interesting it can look, especially when wearing bright green hue with a shiny effect.

Have you tried this combination yet? Hoping you all have a wonderful day!

The Bermuda Cut / Learn How to Make a Polished Look With the Chicest Shorts

EMBRACING BAGGY BERMUDAS.

Can you believe this? Long, slouchy shorts look actually super chic!

It took me a while before I had the courage to try the Bermuda shorts. I was a little (well, a lot) afraid they wouldn’t suit me at all. I thought I should own longer legs to make them work. Finally, I found these brown ones from sale and it felt like “if-not-now-when” kind of situation and so I decided to give this trend a try. And what happened… I fell in love with them immediately. This is why I love fashion, it’s full of surprises and new things to learn and try.

Here are my tips to make the long-shorts work for short legs.

  • Make your legs look longer with a high-waist fit.
  • Pair your shorts with high heeled shoes.
  • Tuck in your top.
  • …or just forget all the rules and go for it in your own unique way!

If you prefer a feminine look, I suggest to add something girly and pretty to your outfit as the Bermudas belong to “dad-style” category, so you don’t end up looking like a dad. Think about, sheer tops, floral prints, lace, ruffles, delicate jewelry… Have fun, be fearless and find your own way to make them work for your style.

How to Style an Outfit Up to Perfection

In collaboration with Chicwish.

This simple styling trick will make your winter outfit feel the most stylish yet.

When the air becomes crisp it’s time to get excited for the new seasons outfit ideas and layering opportunities. If you find dressing for the winter challenging, I’m here to inspire you. Keep reading if you need some new ideas.

One of the coolest and most stylish ways to make an outfit work is tonal dressing, this means dressing from head-to-toe using just one color or multiple shades of one color. It’s an easy way to make an outfit look polished and fashion-forward. Here are a few tricks how to make tonal dressing work.


Playing with different textures

Mixing different fabrics and textures adds contrast and interest to an outfit. Think pairing a chunky knit with a lightweight silk top and a leather skirt, all items picked from the same color family to make a harmonious look. I styled a neutral look pairing a faux fur coat with a ruched top and a tulle skirt.


Mix different shades of the same hue

A tonal outfit can also mean mixing tones from one color family. A head-to-toe look can be styled from any color, beige, green, blue, red, yellow, white… just pick your favorite color and build your look around that color. Here I combined a pale pink top with a deep red skirt and boots. When you pick the shades from one hue, it’s guaranteed that the outfit will look balanced and flattering as the shades will perfectly match together.


Go for suiting

Suits are maybe the easiest way to try tonal dressing. A suit is a smart choice and never goes out of style, it’s practical as well as stylish. Go bold and wear just a bra underneath or style with a tee in a similar tone. Finish the look with sneakers for a relaxed touch and with heels for a formal look.

This Is the Coolest Way to Wear a Silk Scarf Right Now

MAKE ANY OUTFIT A STATEMENT OUTFIT.

The scarfs are back and they aren’t going anywhere just yet.

Do you remember Beyoncé or Christina Aguilera wearing a headscarf back in the early ’00s? This nostalgic trend is really making a comeback this fall, perfectly updated looking modern, fresh and so chic. I was very inspired by Dior’s fall show and needed to try the trend, even though I wasn’t expecting it to suit me at all. But this is one thing that I love about fashion, you can always be experimental and try new things, to have a little fun with your clothing, not taking yourself too seriously or being afraid to be judged by the fashion polices, letting yourself be adventurous and build up your confidence by creating your own unique style.

Every time when I have styled an outfit with a scarf, I have been impressed how it always makes a statement look. And here again, it’s the scarf that makes this outfit rock.

I Found the Most Beautiful Swimsuit and I Think You’ll Love It Too

In collaboration with Chicwish.

Some of the best memories are made in swimsuits…

I think I will never stop loving this swimsuit, I feel so elegant and feminine every time I put it on. And when talking about swimsuits, how important it is to feel confident when wearing one. I just have to say, this is the most flattering fit I’ve ever worn. I love the classic silhouette with gorgeous, high-drama ruffle details, they just add the perfect touch of glamour making me feel pure happiness when wearing it.

I kept the look simple, but added a few accessories to highlight the elegance of the swimwear. I finished the look with delicate jewellery and strappy sandals with golden hue. Trust me, this look will totally make chilling by the pool very memorable.

Happy weekend everyone! Enjoy your Saturdays!
