Oh wow

My solution (I`m sure I`m not the only one) when your hair goes all crazy and plays hooplaa (I`m yet again sure, it`s not a real word) on you? Wear a hat or even better, a turban! And how amazing is this turban with the net detail? The only problem is your eyelashes get a little bit stuck in the net, but it`s oh-so-amazing that I really don`t mind walking around looking a bit disturbed. And then there is the story of these jeans... I`m still not sure I like them yet. I`ve wanted a good pair of boyfriend jeans for a very long time. So when I tried some different tappered (basically, it`s the same loose fit) models on at the G-star store I kind of made my decision but decided to check their online store too. And on the picture they looked damn good. And they were on sale, so no questions asked and no shipping paid, I ordered them. When they arrived... well, like I said, I`m still not sure. They don`t look as good as they looked on the official pictures (or maybe they just don`t fit me) but they are not bad either. But either way, I`m still looking for my perfect pair of boyfriend jeans. And the Micheal Kors bag... I have had dreams about this bag. Finally mine!
Oh wow, I don`t think I`ve never talked so much in any of my posts. Progress.

She`s a lady

So before I went off to my vacation, I decided to wear this beauty. Meaning the skirt of course! I love how it instantly makes you feel so feminine. And I am sucker for this kind of cuts! I`d love to wear it with bare legs and a classic white shirt, hopefully soon! But then again there is the problem with the fabric, as it is raw denim it can stain a bit. But I guess I`ll just have to try it out because I think it would look so good with the white shirt.

Yes, you can...

... feel jealous at the moment because as of yesterday I am taking a long awaited break and it is in paradise! Packed my bags and went off to Dominican Republic! Also found out that I am terrible at packing. I`m sure I either took way too much stuff or way too little, can`t decide yet but I`ll let you know when I am back. And I`ll be back in the beginning of May. I have a few posts prepared for you but if you would like quicker updates from pradise then there is my instagram (you can find me: marilinkaareste). And yes, I`ll try to update a lot there just to make you more jealous! :)
Oh wait! I have already entered this zone!
Yes, I`m probably laying under these palm trees as you are reading this post :)

I`m sure most of you have visited Sfäär already and it needs no introduction whatsoever but still. One of my personal new favourite places for lunch! The interior is simple yet charming, the food is absolutely delicious, basically everything I have tried there is yum! And the service is great, the staff can be a bit "airheady" (I`m sure it`s not even a real word) but don`t get me wrong, I don`t mean it in a bad way, they are absolutely adorable there! And they have a store right there too! So after a couple of glasses of wine shopping can be really fun. They sell brands like Acne Jeans, Comme des Garcons, MiNU and many others. So if you have`nt already, be sure to visit this place!

Warm chicken salad with poached egg, pan - fried potatoes, bacon and pineapple - yoghurt sauce (7,50euros). Just delicious!
Bruschetta with goat cheese, honeyed pear and blackcurrant liqueur marinated beetroot (7euros). One of the best combos of goat cheese and beetroot I have ever gotten!

Cake of the day - Pavlova (3euros). A really huge portion of deliciousness. For me it was even a bit much but still so good!
Cake of the day no2 (3euros) - ... well, this is embarrassing, how do you call it? Cookie-cake? Anyway you get the point. And it tasted good as well!

Alexandre Vauthier...

... My latest discovery. My latest obsession. My latest love. He worked with Thierry Mugler and Jean-Paul Gaultier before launching his own brand in 2009 (where have I been!?). And since I could not choose which is my favourite collection, you will get a bit of everything. It`s just way too good, the clean fabrics, lean cuts, shoulders, capes... well basically, it`s like he is designing exactly for me!

Casually in spring

As you can see I have given up dressing according to the weather. Then again, I have never been that good at it anyway. Freezing my butt off but I am just so sick and tired of coats, sweaters, boots and everything else warm. The thing I am not tired of is the sun! As for this outfit, I kind of wanted a denim shirt for a long time but then again I was`nt too sure I would even wear it. Until I found this perfect one in a random shop in Brussels. Add a small dose of shiny stones to a shirt and I am in anytime! And I got myself a perfect pair of aviator sunglasses (that you cannot see in these pictures, but don`t worry, I`ll be wearing them a lot!).

My days in Brussels

So, a little overview about my getaway to Brussels. Went there to see my queen B and had a great time. Like I said before, even if it is just for a few days, it so good to get away! As for Brussels... it greeted me with an incredible weather (+20, felt like summer), beautiful city, good food and then B trying to kill me by making me walk a hundred kilometers a day! But it was beautiful, I`m not sure if it was that beautiful that I would want to live there (I always measure the places like that, how much would I want to live in that city) but I would definitely love to visit this city again. And then of course there was Brugge... a very lovely city! Definitely a must! Reminded me a bit of Tallinn`s old town but it had more of a special feel to it. Anyhow... pictures tell more than a thousand words! 
Have a great weekend!

Good food, good wine... A very important part of my travels! :)

How to trap a white girl? Starbucks!
