Oriental chic

February 28, 2016

YAAAY!! Finally my favorite actor ever since ’97. won an Oscar! 😀 Congratulations to Leonardo DiCaprio for winning that little, golden man statue, he has deserved it since long, long time ago. Have you watched the Oscars? It’s one of my favorite Red Carpet events to date. Ever since I was a little kid, I loved to watch the TV broadcast. Seeing stars arriving to the Oscars in their best outfits/ looks ever was and still is so inspiring!

Did any of your favorites (actor/ actress/ movie) win anything? Share your thoughts with me dear folks! 🙂

I’ve been fighting some seasonal flu, on and off now for almost 2 weeks and my little daughter has been sick ( possibly caught like 3 different viruses or something ) for almost 3 weeks and the crazy weather ain’t helping us to get better… One day it’s slushy-rainy day with “warm” temperatures, next day, it’s snowing again, very windy and cold outside. I don’t know anymore how to dress or what to expect to “encounter” when I step outside of my home doors.

To cheer myself up, I have decided to skip the PJ days, put some make up on and dress up a little with whatever I can find in my closet. You’ll see all of my regular favorites in this outfit which I was happy to revisit, as well as one new pice and it’s this sleeveless, finely knitted tunic by Cut&Pret. I have already mentioned this brand in a post HERE . This outfit combo definitely worked out like a charm as an instant mood and self-confidence booster. 🙂 Despite everything, the weekend was busy but filled with amazing food, friends and errands. Saturday was one of the best days ever this year and it’s all thanks to the friends that I’ve spent the day with! To have a real friend, you need to be one yourself too!

Let me know how did you like my oriental chic outfit? 😀

Have the best Monday possible! Wake up like a winner, wake up as if you would be Leonardo DiCaprio! :*

I’m wearing: Shoes – Moda Di Fausto, Coat – Max Mara, Bag – Mandval, Brooch – Chanel, Turban – Zara, Blouse – Massimo Dutti, Jeans – Tiger of Sweden, Necklace – Deni design, Tunic – Cut&Pret ( thanks to SpaltPR ) , Bangles – JCrew & HoH1960

    Da, i ovdje je vrijeme ludo i klinci su stalno bolesni a ja smrcem vec mjesec dana… te promijene su grozne… malo proljece pa malo zima :/
    Ti izgledas prekrasno a turban mi je glavna zvijezda! Kako ti samo dobro stoji!!!! Ogrlica je isto divna, nalikuje mi na dubrovacki vez (mozda i je, ne vidim dobro) i to mi je odmah cista ♡ ! Ugodan tjedan, draga te se nadam da cete svi uskoro bii bolje! :*

      Ajme znam kako ti je! Nama, mamama, kad djecu boli, nas boli duplo, ali onda kad smo i same bolesne, onda je to stvarno nesto sto mene osobno izbaci skroz iz nekog toka i sva sam si “ni vamo- ni tamo”. Jedva cekam prolijece i pogotovo ljeto.. Onda sam si najsretnija i najbolje funkcioniram a virozama i sl. niti traga. 😀 Hvala ti na svim ovim divnim komplimentima, stvarno mi uvijek ulijepsas dan i “iznutra” se instant osijecam bolje. 😀
      Ova ogrlica je iz Sibenika, tako da je privjesak sibenski botun kojeg obozavam! :*

    Uvijek divna i elegantna! 🙂
    Joj ne spominji vražje viroze, i ja se s borim već tjednima, a ovo ludo toplo-hladno vrijeme nimalo ne pomaže…On the bright side, yaaaay za Leonarda, napokon je dobio kipić kojeg je već odavno zaslužio! I presretna sam jer mi je apsolutni favorit, Spotlight, proglašen najboljim filmom, a Inarritu ponovno najboljim redateljem…čovjek zmaj 😀 Ponedjeljak nakon Oscara je najbolji ponedjeljak u godini!

    • Reply natali karppinen February 29, 2016 at 5:53 AM

      Awww!! Puno ti hvala!! Nadam se da ce i tvoja viroza cim prije proci, bas su iscrpljujuce! Da, da, bas sam presretna za Lea a i za Inarrita, svi su mislili da nece dobiti Oscara dvi godine zaredom, BUT hell yeah! Ima pravde na svijetu! 😀 Uzivaj u “ekstra” danu veljace! Saljem ti puno pusa!

    Love this look and you are gorgeous, you remind me of Natalie Portman in these photos as well. I am also a Leo fan, and I was jumping up and down when he won it last nigh, I was so excited for him; FINALLY!!! But I love how humble and caring his speech was. He deserved it.

    • Reply natali karppinen March 2, 2016 at 11:26 PM

    I’m so glad that Leo won at last, he really deserves it. I only watched the red carpet before the ceremony and I must admit that I wasn’t over impressed with the majority of the dresses this year. I really love the blouse, it looks perfect over the white shirt. xoxo

    • Reply natali karppinen March 2, 2016 at 11:24 PM

      Thank you so much! I’m also so happy for Leo and for the amazing speech that he had a chance to give! There were some gorgeous dresses, but not as majestic as previous years, I agree. 🙂

    I too was so excited for Leo receiving the Oscar (finally)!!!
    I hope you feel better very soon.

    I live the outfit, especially the shirt! I am super stoked the Leo finally won, as it was LONG overdue. To top it off he used his fame for something good, and his message was motivating, informing, and so needed. Just like you, you motivate and uplift. We need more if this. Living your blog. Fasion, food, motivating us to be human… good humans, and so many great photographs of Helsinki!! Your blog is uplifting. ???? Thanks, Nata!
