The girl from the land of a thousand lakes











Coat: Only, Mittens: HEMA, Scarf: made by Sanne, Cardigan: H&M, 
Dress: self-made, Shoes: DinSko

Yay, a new outfit that's only 2 weeks old! (I seriously need to start taking more outfit pictures)

Three new items in this outfit. First, the lovely parka coat I got as an early birthday present from D's mother. She had bought it for me while I was in Amsterdam. The weather has gotten a lot colder here and all my thick winter coats are in Finland so I was truly elated to receive such a lovely thick coat to keep me warm. The second new item is the mittens. D's mother got them for me as well, to go with the coat and to keep my hands warm. She had considered getting leather gloves, but she thought that mittens with a polar fleece lining would be better for my freezing little paws. Needless to say I was extremely happy with the gift, especially because all my gloves and mittens are still in Finland.

The third new item is a story on its own, and here I have to thank D's mother again. I have been wanting to take up sewing for ages, and finally I managed to find an easy sewing pattern for beginners. So I bought some fabric and other sewing things (very professional and accurate, I know) for a loose-fitting dress, but the dress would still be just fabric lying around in my closet if it wasn't for D's mother who took the time and energy to help me to make the dress. I think it turned out very well, and I've been wearing it a lot lately. If you'd like me to make a more specific post about the dress and how it came to be, let me know in the comment box!

D took these pictures on Sunday two weeks ago. It was such a grey and rainy weather, and right after we were done taking pictures, it started raining. I thought that the old harbour in Hoorn would serve well as a backdrop so there we went. I love harbours, and the one in Hoorn is extremely pretty. I couldn't stand living far away from water, coming from the land of thousand lakes. A little walk by IJsselmeer, even in the chilly weather, with D and a camera was a really good way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Now it's time for me to get a cup of tea and my knitting project and watch one episode of ER before going to bed. I hope everyone has had a great weekend, because I certainly did. On Saturday I went to the Open Day at AMFI and Hogeschool van Amsterdam, but more about that later...

    1. Kiitos, D on ruvennut ymmärtämään asukuvien tarkoitusta ja anatomiaa... ja photoshopkäyrillä saa helposti ja nopeasti luotua tunnelmaa kun ei jaksa itse ruveta säätelemään valotuksia ja värejä :D

  9. I was in Finland once for a layover, and I remember standing and looking out at one of the lakes by the city center. The background is so pretty. And I love your outfit- it’s so classic. Great parka present!

  25. Ja senja auta!
    Mulla on mukamas kuvatila loppu ja tä valittaa jostain Picasan 1gt:n täytöstä?! APUAAAA!

    1. Mulla itse asiassa valittaa samasta asiasta... En ole varma että onko kuvatila oikeasti loppu (voi ollakin, sen verran kuvia on tänne ladattu) mutta siirryin nyt kuitenkin laittamaan flickr:n kautta. Eli luot flickr-tilin, lataat kuvat sinne ja sitten blogin puolella linkität ne kuvat. Flickr on siitä kätevä, että niillä on tosi hyvin ilmaista tallennustilaa, vaikka tietenkin Photobucket tai vastaava toimii varmasti ihan yhtä hyvin :)

      Tai sitten voi aina maksaa ja hankkia lisää tallennustilaa Picasalta... mutta itseäni se ei oikein innostanut :D
