Right now, I’m lying in bed next to my daughter. I just put my son to sleep which after I always climb up the bunkbed to hold her hand when she falls asleep. Putting my kids to bed is my favorite routine of the day. A habit I don’t feel any rush to try to wean off.

Today we spent the day at my father’s summer house nearby where we enjoyed a family sauna, barbeque and spent time with my dad and his girlfriend. One thing I’m so grateful for is all the good people that came into both mine and my children’ s lives all thanks to my parent’s divorce. Divorce’s are of course not all positive I get that, but I must say my parents did a good job. I’ve never been afraid of divorce and that’s all thanks to how good everything has turned out both between and for my parents. My family just got bigger, better and happier! Just as a little side note, because the thought quite often hits me when I hang out with either of my parents and their partners.

This is what I wore yesterday for a little shopping spree downtown. I’ve been waiting to get to wear this amazing dress by ByMalina and although it wasn’t the warmest day, I decided to go for it anyway. This outfit consists of some of my absolute best purchases I’ve made within a year. These Céline boots I got on sale must be my most worn heels and number one purchase. This vintage Chanel bag is definitely a favorite next to my vintage Dior saddle and so is this Fiippa K bomber I bought second hand. Vintage bags are perfect I think, because they look more relaxed and effortless than brand new bags. Here are my favorite places to shop for vintage bags.

Love that sometimes the most surprising purchase happen to become the most wearable and loved pieces. Don’t you agree? Which are your most worn pieces in your wardrobe?

Green trench

Last spring, I sold pretty much all of my trench coats. I didn’t wear them that much and felt like they were too fitted and ladylike for my current taste. I didn’t buy a new one and to be honest I didn’t even feel the need to search for one. The lack of a trench coat wasn’t a whole in my wardrobe that needed to be filled right there and then. Little did I know, because when I stumbled upon this army green water-resistant trench by Andiata, I instantly fell for it.

Since I’ve learned to wait a minute or two and not buy everything I like, I waited a bit too long. When I decided to go for it, it was sold out in my size. When I saw that it was back in stock, I immediately placed it into my shopping cart and checked out. Best of all, it was on discount!

When I posted this Andiata trench so many of you liked it as well, therefore I just had to borrow this sample from Reserved so I could show you! It looks the same, but it’s much more festive in the fabric and a great budget version.

I’ve linked both trench coats here (budget) and here (splurge) for you to compare and get a closer look. Which one do you like better?

Ps. I hear Andiata still has some left at Stockmann in case you got as obsessed as I ;)
