30 under 50€

Well, I spend a lot of time surfing the internet to keep up with clothes that are in stores and soon to come to stores. I compiled you 30 pieces that cost less than 50€. I piled up a few summer essentials, colorful tops, dressed shirts, off shoulder tops, cropped pants and slip dresses. You might be all shocked of all the colors but this summer I’m totally hooked on orange and baby blue. I’m totally loving the batik piece, so Gucci resort 2017. Enjoy and happy shopping!

Dresses for every occasion

Summer means graduation, weddings, garden parties and what not. Finding an appropriate dress might not always be so easy, as you have to consider the functionality and comfort of the dress. Bodycon dresses are popular, but would you feel comfortable in a squeezing, tight polyester dress during a humid and hot summer day, and is it appropriate? Thought so too, so here are some nice alternatives.

&Other Stories has a nice selection of minimalistic dresses in nice breathing fabrics. What I like about these dresses are that they are multi functional, dress up or dress down. My favorite is the printed dress, wear it with a pair of heels for a party, and dress it down with a leather jacket and loafers.

COS might not deliver summery dresses quite yet, most dresses are in darker color tones. These two though are fun and youthful dresses, a pair of nice heels and you are ready to party!

H&M has a really strong spring collection this year. They have a lot of nice dresses, I picked these three, the yellow lace and baby blue dress are my absolute favorite. The yellow dress is also festival appropriate, wear it with a pair of Stan Smith’s or sandals, add some nice jewelry, a hat and you are good to go.

Zara always have a great selection of dresses, but it is a risk to buy graduation dresses from there, as most likely somebody from your school will have the same dress. The last three dresses are really nice, the tweed one is very Alexa Chungish. The two longer dresses are great for weddings, as they go over the knee they are appropriate for church weddings.

 

Topshop didn’t quite convince me with their dresses, but these two were nice I thought. The black one is maybe a liiittle bit too revealing for a graduation dress but totally appropriate for a night on the town, just add a nice leather jacket.

New Look offers nice dresses for a good price. The black one is not relevant as it’s not a party dress, but in my eyes the perfect everyday dress and for 20€. Off shoulder is THE trend for this summer, and there’s something about this icy blue dress that I like.

Marimekko, okay not the cheapest selection of dresses but these are soo pretty! Imagine the maxi dress with the Kivet print, flowing in the summer wind and giving enough coverage for late nights. Love these!

 

Stockholm

On Monday, we left Tallinn for Helsinki, and Helsinki for Stockholm. We got these crazy cheap cruise tickets to Stockholm, so together with our neighbours we spent a day in Stockholm.
It was awfully stormy on the first night on the boat, so after a painful awakening we took the metro to Östermalmstorg, and ate breakfast in a small café called Borgs Brödbod in Östermalms foodmarket. They have nice salads aswell!

After that, shopping of course! As we were quite tired, we didn’t have that much energy for shopping, but we did cover the stores that can’t be found in either Tallinn or Helsinki, e.g. Urban Outfitters, &Other Stories, Caliroots, Topshop, Footlocker etc.

I will show you what I bought on sale when I get home, we still have a 2 hour ferry ride back to Tallinn ahead of us. Ugh, can’t wait to get home! You know when you’ve been onboard on a rocking boat (6m waves..) so it feels still like everything is rocking when walking! Ugh!

Best of sales

Good morning! So, today is boxing day, which means CHRISTMAS SALES!!! Amazeballs, I’ve been looking through all my favorite webshops since I woke up, and I thought I’d make a summary of my favorites that are on sale! When shopping on sale, you should always look for classic staples or pieces that go according to trends or are usable during several seasons. Here are some of my favorites!

387731310

H&M – great sales on jackets, knits and Trend items! I have to check first out the store before ordering, as the shipping is so slow to Finland! I’ve been saving myself for the tuxedo jacket with small blue stones on it, yum!

387731705

Urban Outfitters – the sales wasn’t that good, there were no items that you really need for spring mostly sweaters. Nice jackets though.

387732011

Weekday – I need to raid the whole store.

Monki – reeaaally good sales, cheap and cheeky products! I’m gonna hit the store tomorrow.

Topshop – some nice items, not a lot of shoes on sales ( 😦 ) but you might find something. Pending on whether if I should order the khaki quilted jacket or not.

&OtherStories – not such great sales, but you may find some classical pieces and accessories for good prices. Some vans sneakers and nice bags on sale as well.

387733557

COS – if you don’t have a pea coat, then you need to visit COS, because this particular one is on sale for only 60€ which is a bargain. Nice dresses and sweaters as well but nothing mind blowing.

387740928

Asos – if you would like to waste your time looking through 130 pages of tops or dresses, be my guest. But there is though a lot of nice jackets and shoes on sale.

387744687

Caliroots – the best items you can find on sale is mainly Vans shoes and some streetwear items such as t-shirts and long sleeved shirts. Make sure to look through the unisex items aswell, the most interesting brands according to me is adidas Originals, HUF, Nike, Palace, Stüssy, Carhart and Black Scale.

Happy shopping!
