This week I’ve felt slightly off, slightly uncomfortable & felt like nothing in my wardrobe reflected how I felt or wanted to feel/look. I’m sory we’ve all felt that way, for no reason whatsoever. Maybe it’s true, maybe I just want to believe it’s true but I’m vaguely starting to feel bored by the constant silhouette of skirts. I’ve been wanting pants for ages now, but never knew where to look until it suddenly hit me Marimekko would probably have something I liked. And it did. I know a little place that always has huge sales on small Marimekko sizes, which I fit in so I squaled inwardly when I found these pants!! Not only is it a challenge silhouette-wise but it incorporates my increasing interest in black too. And ya know, polka dots are a basic style for me. I can’t wait to literally wear all polka dotted items with this!!

shoes: dr. martens, pants: Marimekko, coat: gift/Sonia Rykiel, scarf: hand-made, shirt & cardigan: second hand, earmuffs: Veritas

Also, I might get these too, what do you think? It has that typical Marimekko style of pattern that seems hand-painted, in this case it relly reminds me of blak and white calligraphy, which is one of my favourite techniques!
