Shoreditch vibes

When your girl is back in town and you get back to together to shoot some pictures. We headed to Shoreditch this time.
It's just amazing how many different environments you can find in London. Starting with fancy Notting Hill and ending up with party heaven Shoreditch with its cool hipster vibe.

White dream

Time flies way too fast. I remember so clear when it was the beginning of May and now we are almost in June.  I can barely blink my eyes and days go bye. Sometimes I just wish to stop time to enjoy those good times longer which turn into memories too quickly or travel back in time. Yes, I know we should enjoy every single day but some days are not the best. Like today for example. But it's okay to feel down sometimes and unmotivated, I guess that's life.  
Tomorrow is a Monday and we can have a fresh start to the new week. Hopefully week full of positive vibes and motivation. 
Stay on track everyone! 

When it comes to my outfit I decided to wear my super oversized white dress with my skinny high waisted denim and Zara slippers. Perfect outfit for a Sunday stroll in Canary Wharf.

Baby pink with touch of silver


One of my favourite looks lately. My cropped baby pink shirt with a shiny silver skirt. Perfect outfit to enjoy those warm days in London. I'm sorry I haven't been very active with my blog lately, I'm just lacking a little bit of time. I feel that my work is literally taking over my life for last few weeks and on my days off I just want to relax.  I can't wait for next 3 months when I have my holidays. I really need a time off from London for a bit. 

Sending kisses to all of you! Talk to you soon xx

Checked blazer with basic hoodie

This is my outfit from the cloudy Sunday. Checked blazer mixed with my basic black hoodie and a simple white t-shirt. 
And because I'm still obsessed with the red colour I added my red ballerina's to give it an extra touch.

Meie tegemised Londonis

Oh tere kõigile! Mulle tundub, et ma pole kuidagi väga ammu ühte eesti keelset postitust teinud ja tunnen, et ma võlgnen selle kõigile oma eesti keelsetele lugejatele, kes meile terve eelmise aasta kaasa elasid.
Kohe kindlasti ei ole ma ära kadunud, kui siis ainult veidikene vähem oma isiklikust elust ja meie otsestest tegemistest kirjutanud. Rohkem olen teinud outfiti postitusi, niiet miks mitte teiega natukene muudel teemadel jutustada. Vahepeal on tunne, et ei oskagi enam eesti keeles kirjutada, kuna kasutan eesti keelt igapäevaselt aina vähem. Jah, kindlasti mõtlete, et mul ju Laura kellega me koguaeg koos chillime, aga kahjuks me ei näe väga tihti. Tavaliselt ühe korra nädala peale, sest lihtsalt ei viibi samal ajal kodus. Niiet kujutage siis ette, kui palju ma eesti keeles rääkida saan. Me siiski elame koos, aga meie erinevate graafikute ja eraelude tõttu ei veeda me enam nii palju aega koos. Aastaga oleme nullist ülesse ehitanud lisaks tööle ka oma sõprusringkonna. See ei tähenda, et ma oma eesti semusid ei igatseks, aga oleme mõlemad suhteliselt õnneseened, et saime selliste inimestega siin elades tuttavaks.

Lõpuks peale aastat on saanud London kuidagi väga koduseks ja ei oskaksi kusagil mujal vist elada. Olenemata ummistunud metroodest tipptunnil, pikkadest teekondadest, et kuhugi jõuda ja aeglastest asja ajamisest, sest ju koguaeg peab mingite asjade järgi ootama. Nüüdseks ma isegi ei seisa enam eskalaatorite peal kui metroosid vahetan vaid üritan kiirelt ühest sihtpunktist teise jõuda, et peaks seal maa-all võimalikult vähe viibima. Olen õppinud, et kui reede õhtul välja minnes ei leia sa omale lauda kusagil baaris või restoranis on see täiesti normaalne ja oma energiat vihastamise alla panna on mõtetu. Tuleb ennast pigem paremini planeerida ja omale asjad igale poole ära bronnida. Siiski elab Londonis peaaegu 9 miljonit inimest, niiet kujutage siis seda tsirkust siin ette.
Näiteks selleks, et ma ennast perearsti nimekirja saaksin läks mul ka aega täpsemalt viis nädalat ja selleks, et aja saaksin veel omakorda kaks. Minule on see nii võõras, kui asjad võtavad nii kaua aega. Aga ega muud varianti ei ole, kui lihtsalt enda harjumused vastavalt keskonnale ringi muuta.
Ärge saage minust valesti aru, ma ei vingu vaid lihtsalt annan teile ülevaate, kuidas siin asjad käivad. Olen ise selle kõigega juba ammu kohanenud.

Ainuke asi, millega me mõlemad veel harjuma vist peame on elamine koos endast täiesti erinevate inimestega. Me mõlemad Lauraga oleme suhteliselt chillid ja layed back inimesed. Enamasti leplikud ja kui me parasjagu just millegi üle kohutavalt ei naera, siis ka vaiksed. Aga ainuke omadus, mis meile inimeste juures ei meeldi on lohakus ja kui inimesed ei oska korda pidada. Ma arvan, et me oleme oma praeguses korteris teinud varsti kokku 20 koosolekut, kuidas asjad olla võiksid ja koostanud erinevaid graafikuid ja liste, mida kõik võiksid järgida kellel pole loogilist mõtlemist. Aga no ega kellele pole mõistust antud, siis need koosolekud ja nimekirjad on kasutud. Minu jaoks on teistega koos elamine samuti midagi uut, aga enda järelt koristamine aga mitte. See vahel ajab ikka vihale küll kui elad koos inimestega, kes ei viljele samu harjumusi. See vist on minu jaoks ainukene miinus Londonis elamise juures. Aga no ega kõike korraga ka ei saa, niiet vaatame, mis tulevik toob.

Usun, et teid huvitab ka, mis meie töökohtadest saanud on ja millega tegeleme. Laura ajab oma asju ühes Post Production Companys juba detsembrist. Mul oli selle üle nii hea meel, et ta finally saab oma eriala poole liikuma hakata. Ega ma rohkem sellest rääkida ei oskagi, sest ma pole selles asjas väga ekspert. Ühesõnaga she is doing good, mis on peamine! Keda huvitab rohkem, siis võite talle vabalt kirjutada.
Mina töötan endiselt H&M's kuid eelmisest nädalast olen stilistika manager, hetkel küll selle suve lõpuni, aga vaatame, mis peale augustit saab. Nimelt saadeti üks manager Kolumbiasse marketit avama ja mulle pakuti, et kas ma oleks nõus tema positsiooni senikauaks ülevõtma. Muidugi tuli see pakkumine mulle nagu välk taevast, aga võtsin selle katsumuse rõõmuga vastu ja nüüd olen antud kohal juba nädal aega tegutsenud.Aasta aega tagasi poleks ma osanud arvata, et töötan ühes maailma suurimas H&M'is stilistika managerina, aga no vot just seda ma teen. Kindlasti ei taha ma öelda, et see kõik on lillepidu, aga at the end of the day olen ma olen õnnelik, et saan seda teha just siin ja õppida nii paljudelt inimestelt. Tahaksin teile hinge peale panna, et dream until you make it! Ma pole veel kaugeltki seal, kus ma olla tahan, aga I don't complain either.
Loodan, et saite väikse ülevaate meie Londoni tegemistest ja kellel on küsimusi, siis inbox me! Olge mõnusad ja räägime varsti!

Checked dress with sporty socks

This weekend happened to be one of the warmest ones yet this year, the maximum was 26 degrees. Sounds amazing, right? On Sunday it really felt like summer, we were wearing shorts and tank tops and still felt hot. This kind of weather doesn't happen very often in London so you need to enjoy it to the maximum when it happens. We spent most of our weekend in Greenwich which is one of my favourite parts in London. Big park, cute cafes, markets and street musicians who just make the atmosphere so enjoyable. We finished our Sunday with the dinner in Franco Manca and captured few photos on the way. We usually don't spend our weekends together with Laura so we really made most of it this time.

I decided to wear my checked dress with sporty socks and silver sandals. The checked print is taking over the world lately. So if you want to keep up with the trends be sure you get yourself a piece of it this season.

Nude tones and spring weather in London

Spring has found it's way to London. This Sunday me and Ruts did our last photo shoot together because she will be moving away from the UK next week and this is the end of our journey. Really gonna miss this one here. 
But anyways I don't want to write a lot this time because it's all about the pictures what we took. I went for all nude outfit. Playing with baby pink shadows and light beige stilettos. I added my oversized blazer with a hoodie underneath to make it little bit more tomboy. 
Stay cool babes and talk to you soon!

Tallinn Fashion week part 2


During the second day of Tallinn Fashion Week, we saw collections from Monton, Diana Arno, Goldtime, Triinu Pungits and Embassy of Fashion which includes designs from Aldo Järvsoo, Riina Põldroos and Ketlin Bachmann.
I think my overall favorites from the second day were Riina Põldroos and Monton. And of course I need to mention the jewelry collection from Goldtime. We saw the designs from Tanel Veenre, New Vintage by Kriss, Birgit Skolimowski and Monquer.

The day was opened by Monton’s collection. This collection was specially made for Tallinn Fashion Week. Collection’s name is „Duality“. We can spread the collection in two parts. The first part shows the icy island and the other is a reminder of hot Cuban inspiration. There were 30 designs all together.
In the first part of the collection, we saw very tonal color palette. Mostly from gray to black with a touch of white. Long white maxi dresses with see-through materials were my personal favorite. Also in Monton’s collection, we had a chance to see the sporty socks element. Again good styling, but we’ve seen in before like I mentioned in my last post. They added the tulle for a lot of dresses which in my opinion didn’t go together with all outfits. Example, the black and white embroidered sleeveless dress layered with tulle and styled with sporty socks, skinny denim and silver heels. In my opinion, it was a little bit too much and the cut of the dress wasn’t very flattering. Also, my least favorite the silver bodysuit with the bomber jacket looked a little bit off. Maybe it was the fault of the model who didn’t wear it fierce enough. That’s another point for the designer it is very important to choose your models wisely. They are the first people who present your collection to the public so better be sure that the person rocks it on the runway.
I was very impressed with men’s collection and the styling they had done. Shorts with leggings, interesting bomber jackets and jumpsuits are quite a strong choice for any Estonian guy.
The other part of the collection was inspired by Cuban vibes like I said before. My ultimate favorite from this part was the long flower pattern kimono. I really would wear this every single day during the spring. Just style it with cool denim, mules and simple white T, uhh sounds like a dream to me.  Also, the ruffles were quite a keyword for Monton’s TFW collection. The second part also brought a lot of colors for men’s which is making me super happy. I would love to see guys in Estonia doing a little bit of color blocking with their outfits. Something little bit bolder but definitely worth trying.

Next on the stage was Diana Arno with her pastel colors collection. The eye catchers for this collection were definitely the flower accessories. They perfectly matched with all the outfits that we saw on the runway. Again I had my favorite which was the light violet coat with big square pockets on both sides. Styled with this huge flower scarf which was breathtaking. I would really wear every single coat from this collection I saw. My second favorite thing were the long maxi dresses with a very low back line, which makes them so sexy and wearable on warm spring and summer days.

I was very impressed with the Goldtime accessories collection which brought a lot of diversity to the stage. The only things I wasn’t a fan about were the basic white t-shirt and basic denim with heels. We were discussing with Pilleriin and maybe more suitable would have been long black bodysuits which make the accessories pop out even more. I know it wasn’t about the outfits in this show but still, it would add something extra to it. Basic T’s and denim are too boring on the runway to even consider this option.  But if we talk about the collection overall for me it was quite amazing. Ultimate favorite was the clock which was braided into the hair, I will give my 10 points to that.

Last part of the show brought to the stage Triinu Pungits and Embassy of Fashion. Triinu Pungits collection was my least favorite one from the second day. The dark brown colors have never been my favorite ones and if someone makes the collection out from this color I just cannot relate. The only things which caught my attention were the colorful bodysuits which I would definitely wear and the big oversized pattern coats.

Embassy of Fashion gave us a chance to see a big variety of amazing evening dresses which made me feel like a princess.  Aldo Järvsoo’s bold colors and feminine cuts were something that every confident woman would like to wear. Ketlin Bachmann didn’t surprise me in any way and for me, the collection wasn’t flattering at all. Starting with the styling of colorful tights and finishing with a mixture of too many patterns and materials. For me, there is a line of „go crazy“ styling and sometimes it just doesn’t work out in a good way. This collection is a very good example that all the patterns don’t complete each other and as a designer, you need to be very careful with this. There is a very thin line between getting it wrong or right. Maybe the garments would work with a different styling but definitely not the way it was put together for this show.

We finished TFW with Riina Põldroos’s collection which for me was one of the best ones.  My personal style is not that feminine and I rarely wear long maxi dresses with flower prints but in this collection there just was something what I really liked. My most favorite outfit was the black jumper with unicorn details and long sheer skirt with black flowers. Also, the outfit with long pink wide trousers and matching flower top stole the show. All the dresses I saw in this collection made my heart beat faster and I’m really dreaming wearing them. Time to discover my feminine side I guess.

So this was my overview of Tallinn Fashion Week. I was really happy that I got a chance to visit it and can’t wait to come back to the next one. I’m already back in London and actually sitting in a cafe at the moment writing this post for you guys. London is full of sunshine and warm weather at the moment and I’m gonna go now and enjoy this vitamin D weather.

Here some of my favorite pics from the runway. Enjoy babes
