Christmas Break

Elegance Revisited will be on Christmas break for the rest of the year

I'm going to take a couple of weeks off to rest and relax after a very busy year. But fear not, Elegance Revisited will be back in January, with lots of new posts and outfits, and maybe a few travel pics, too.

However, if you want a 'sneak peak' on what I've been up to, I will be posting photos more or less regularly on Instagram. What can I say? I love Instagram, and I love photographing random moments here and there...

Merry Christmas

2017 Favourite Outfits

My Favourite Outfits in 2017

I thought I'd take a look at some of my favourite outfits in 2017, to see where my style is going. Because style, like most things in life, is not static; it evolves over time, as our lifestyles and priorities change.

Of course, trends influence personal style, as do all the stylish people we see in the media (or social media). And yes, age influences personal style, too.

No, I'm not advocating 'age-appropriate' dressing. I'm simply pointing out that now, in my 50s, I would not wear most of the clothes I used to wear in my 20s. Well, I was a fashion student back then, so I used to wear pretty crazy stuff...

Pinstripe Trousers

How's your December been?

Mine's been busy. No, scratch that. The last few weeks have been over the top crazy busy, and my mind is on permanent overload. But the countdown to holiday has started...

Christmas Markets

winter casual over 40

I've been to a few Christmas Markets lately

First, there was the Christmas Bazaar at Deutsche Schule (= the German School in Helsinki). No, I don't have children in the school, nor do I know anyone who does. But I have a German husband. And when I mentioned having read about this event, it was clear what our plans for Saturday would involve: hot soup, bratwurst and mulled wine...

Easy Layering

What do you wear to go out?

In winter? Make that early winter. Which means rain, snow, sleet, slush, and some more rain. Not necessarily in that order. However, it's not unusual for all of them to make an appearance within the same week, and sometimes even within the same day.

Happy Independence Day

Happy 100th Finland!

My favourite city is all lit up, in blue and white, of course...

I'm Prepared...

winter smart casual

The weather has been all over the place recently: snow, rain, sunshine... OK, the last one has been in short supply... But when the sun does make a rare appearance, there's not a moment to waste. If we want to get somewhat decent photos for the blog, I mean.

Thus, these photos were taken half an hour before sunset (which would be around 3.30 pm. Yeah, really...), on the way to a Christmas Market and then to dinner at a restaurant with hubby.
