Blue Monday

December 13, 2015

One of my favourite songs by New Order and one of my favourite “old” classics that I can listen to over and over again without ever getting bored. Quite danceable song for this Monday morning and it totally fits my mood as I have landed in Croatia yesterday and it feels great to wake up all refreshed and with tons of wishes to tick off from my wish list! Super small things, the ones that make life beautiful, such as going to my favourite people at the Farmer’s Market to buy all of the fresh and local produce, having a coffee break in favourite cafe…. Just walking around and totally blending in with the vibe of the small city and it’s “no rush” mentality.

I’m also getting a haircut today and I can’t wait to show you the new hairdo because I’m going for a shorter cut and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the end result will be just how I’ve envisioned it! I’ve been going to the same hairdresser for 11 years and I always rather go to her than anywhere else because this woman simply has golden hands and she always gets the job done wonderfully! I have been to the best hairdressers from Helsinki to LA and none of them, no matter how highly (over)priced they were, never gave me the hairdo I was expecting to walk out of the salon with.

I’m meeting some of my friends in the evening and I was thinking of wearing this same outfit as I loved it so much when I wore it last week in Helsinki. What do you think of this bodycon turtleneck dress? I simply adore it and I feel very feminine in it. I don’t have the best curves to show off with, but even this little that I do, it felt great to accentuate them.

I’m now off to kick start this day and I’d like to wish you as energetic and good beginning of this week! 🙂

I’m wearing: Boots – Frye, Bag – Chanel, Coat – Burberry, Dress – Oasis, Jewellery – HOH1960

    When i saw the tittle of your post, i thought directly about that song and i was suprised that thats what you meant, because i don t know people who like that kind of music. I do! Haha. I am curious about your hairdo, i am going next week but i want it longer. That bodycon dress is looking good on you, it makes you a bit of an Parisian lady! Have a great day.

    Dobrodošla doma! 🙂 I baš mi je žao što se opet nećemo uloviti, evo meni je ispalo da sutra moram biti u Zagrebu jer sudjelujem na jednoj izložbi i vraćam se već u srijedu natrag, a do Šibenika uopće neću dolaziti još sigurno koji mjesec…No, sa svjetlije strane, tako predobro i predivno izgledaš u ovom outfitu, nemoj ga nikad skidati sa sebe haha 😀 Ta predivna haljina sa još ljepšim nakitom ma joooj <3 <3
    I sretno kod frizera, jedva čekam vidjeti promjenu! 🙂

      Awww!! Puno, puno, PUNO ti hvala na ovako lijepom komplimentu i komentaru! Zazelila sam se Sibenika i bas mi sad pase da sam tu. Jutros sam ulovila svjezu tunu na pijaci i ubila se u njoj za rucak, life is perfect now! 😀
      Zao mi je da se necemo vidjeti, bas sam se bila ponadala da ako Sibenik ne bude opcija da ce Zagreb upaliti ali apsolutno te razumijem da nije moguce ovaj put, ali znas sto, ja vjerujem da ce biti jos puno “next time” situacija u kojima cemo se naci u isto vrijeme na istom mjestu, tako da… Gdje ima volje bude i mogucnosti, kad – tad!

    Ova mi torbica nikada nece dosaditi. Tako mi je zao sto je nisam “isprobala” kada smo se vidjele 😉 a kad smo se zapricale i zaboravila! 🙂
    Haljina je divna i stoji ti savrseno. Toplo preporucam da nabavis jos koju slicno jer ti bas lijepo stoje i zaokruzuju liniju. Veliki lajk!
    Uzivaj kuci i da… podijeli s nama na IG-u novi friz… ne mogu docekati! 🙂 pusa velika

    ova prugasta haljina ti tako savršeno stoji, a i nijansa ljubičaste tog kaputa ti jako lijepo ide uz taj tvoj lijepi ten…torbice se sjećam i uvijek joj se divim, pravo je malo umjetničko djelo..iako obično baš i ne primjećujem torbe ovoj se moram diviti..i čizme su super.
