I always dress for the occasion, and the weather. Well, the weather is getting cooler, windier, maybe even rainy. And the ‘occasion’ in this case was sightseeing, followed by dinner in a lovely restaurant.
Now, these pictures are actually from a couple of weeks ago. But since I haven’t been out much lately, and haven’t had a chance to post them earlier, I thought I’d post them now.
Anyway, about this outfit… casual wear is the way to go: a wind/rainproof parka and good walking shoes. Let’s not forget my current favourite pair of sunglasses. I have sensitive eyes. This is something I noticed after I had my eyes lasered (years ago): glasses protect your eyes from the wind and cold, too, not just the sun.
This is why you hardly ever see me without my sunglasses. The other reason is that after a lifetime of wearing strong prescription glasses I absolutely love wearing huge sunglasses. And I’m very lazy when it comes to makeup and don’t even own a mascara. But I’m going to blame that on the sensitive eyes, too. It sounds better than admitting being lazy…
Professor M and I took a little tour on this 1919 tram. And in case you’re wondering why the text on the side of the tram is in Swedish, let me remind you that Finland has two official languages. The same text is in Finnish on the other side of the tram.
Of course there are plenty of restaurants on the mainland, but since we didn’t have time to visit the island this summer, we thought it might be a nice place for a little walk and dinner. And yes, casual attire is fine, and the old cobblestone streets and dirt roads on the island require sturdy footwear…
