The Dress for All Occasions

maxidress over 40

Yes, you've seen this dress before. And you'll probably see it again. Because I really like it. It's so incredibly versatile, and I can wear it anywhere. Well, I've worn it it to three different restaurants in the past week.

The first one was this: Löyly is both a public sauna and a restaurant. It's a bit of an IT place in Helsinki, and I thought it was about time I check it out. You know, since it's been around for about a year...


But about the outfit...

I chose this location because I wanted to show you how cool this dress could look. And I needed a cool location for that. Just in case the dress turned out to be less cool, after all...

Well, the photo shoot didn't go to plan, exactly...

For starters, it was really hot (yes, it does get hot in Finland at times, too). And it was windy. Yep, windy. Who would've guessed it would get windy, by the sea, huh?

So, I thought we needed a take two. And so, a mere 24 hours later we headed to another cool location, something a bit more traditional this time, to get that cool Nordic vibe...

Yes, it was cool. As in fresh, cold, whatever you want to call it. And windy. Well, a yacht club on a small island just off the mainland...

So, I brought a cardigan. You know, it was a bit chilly and all. And windy. Did I mention windy?

As you can see, I didn't quite get the photos I wanted, and I'm not sure you can see all the cool potential of the dress so clearly... So, you shouldn't be surprised if you see this dress again before the summer is over.

Do you have clothes you want to wear all the time?

    1. Thanks, Jacqui. Well, I guess I should be expecting the wind, staging a photo shoot by the sea.

  4. I love the print on that maxi. Don't blame you for wanting to wear all the time! And those are some really cool earrings as well. I do have a few pieces in my wardrobe that I wear a lot. After all, I try to buy what I really love. And if I love it, I want to wear it as much as possible :)

    1. Thanks, Theresa. I agree, we should only buy what we love, and then wear it to bits. It's better for the environment, and the wallet. And it forces us to develop a signature style, instead of reaching for the latest must-have trend.

  6. Don't you hate that, when you have a perfect photo shoot planned in your head and it doesn't work out that way. Your dress is rather lovely , I can see why it's become a firm favourite. As for repeating , yes , as I showed today, makes far more sense to buy something you really love and will wear and wear.

    1. Oh yes, plans never work. My best photo shoots have been totally spontaneous, last-minute-change-of-plans type of thing. Odd, huh?

  7. Beautiful dress, I love the colours. Wind plays havoc with my hair too - I hate it when it blows in my face and drags lipstick across my cheek! Thanks for linking up :-)

    1. Oh yes, the wind... Well, to be honest, I should sort of expect that; it's always windy by the sea. Still, one hopes for that brief calm moment...

  9. Tiina, I love this dress. And I hate when the weather and the elements don't cooperate with my photo shoots! These colors are fabulous on you, but you already know that! Beautiful look, my friend. Thanks for linking up with me.
