Take Two: The Graphic T-Shirt Goes Casual

casual puffa over 40

I like my new Custo Barcelona top (which you saw in my previous post, too), and the denim skirt I first showed you a few weeks ago. So, of course I had to see what they would look like together. I think it's a good match, isn't it?

You're wondering about my choice of outerwear here?

These pictures were taken in Helsinki, Finland last weekend. It was +8ºC / 46ºF, which is normal for this time of year but not exactly warm. 

So, when can we expect spring? Well, this is spring: all the snow is gone, the migrating birds are back, and the days are getting longer. It's just a matter of time before everything is green again and the weather gets warmer. Or not. 

Yes, weather can be quite unpredictable here... And it may take a while before we can enjoy summer temperatures. In fact, I can remember quite a few very cold summer days, in early June... To be fair, I can also remember a few early June heatwaves. 

So, how can we tell when it's finally summer if the weather is so unreliable? It's very simple: the Finnish word for June (kesäkuu) has the word summer (= kesä) in it. So, come June, it must be summer, never mind the weather...

down jacket: Beaumont / top: Custo Barcelona / skirt: KappAhl /

When does spring start in your neck of the woods?

  1. Spring in New York is supposed to start a few weeks ago but hasn't. It's been Winter Winter Winter here. We'll probably jump right into Summer, which is a shame since I love Spring.

    1. Winter takes too long, doesn't it? I'm not a fan of hot weather, but I would be happy with a bit nicer temperatures for change.

    1. I agree, I've worn it almost non-stop since I got it, and it really goes with most of my clothes.
