Just a Quick Hello...

cashmere sweater

This is a short post, very fitting for a very quick photo shoot...

The post is short because I'm exhausted. It's been a long, very busy autumn, but I've finally wrapped up work for this year. And I plan to spend whatever is left of this year sleeping. I'm not joking: that really is my main goal at this point.

And the photo shoot was very brief because it was damn cold. OK, maybe -5°C / 23°F is not really that cold, but it was windy, too. We also had to hurry a bit to catch the last of the daylight as the sun was already setting (and it was just after 3 pm, in case you're wondering).

Anyway, I've had this cashmere jumper forever, and I can't remember where I got it and when. And you've seen it before HERE. I'm wearing it here because I was trying to find some casual cold-weather clothes that would look good with my new bag... A lame excuse, maybe, but I was determined to wear something purple with the bag, and the only other item I could find is my purple trench. I think we'll revisit that idea in spring...

What's your plan for the rest of the year?




  1. You're looking fab, Tiina and that purple real suits you. I think 23 degrees qualifies as VERY COLD, but what do I know - it was 79 here today! : > Thanks for linking, xo


    1. Thanks, Patti. I'm afraid it's going to get much, much colder still...

  2. Those shades are fabulous! The bag is too and I'm not even a "bag" lady. Ha ha! Pun intended ; )


    1. Thanks Suzanne. I'm definitely a bag lady, but this bag is quite a statement item, even for me.

  3. Enjoy your break and that sleep Tiina. The new bag is gorgeous and would work with just about anything. _5 is what we get here in Winter but only ever as a night temperature. All my best wishes for the silly season.

    1. 'Silly season', what a great term, and so accurate. Thanks, Jill.

  4. What a nice bag! So, sleep well and till next year! Haha, I hope you get lots of rest. Are you staying in Finland of are you celebrating in London?

    1. Thanks, Nancy! And as for celebrating Christmas: neither...

  5. Happy holidays and have some good rest!
    Thank you for joining MIDLIFE FUN and hope you'll join our new MODISH MATRONS link-up in New Year!

  6. Love the bag Tiina! Purple is certainly your friend! Looks great on you. I know its not fun shooting in the wind and cold!
    Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday
