It’s almost spring…

winter casual over 40

It’s nice and sunny… 

And warm. Fine, warmer. A bit. Honest! OK, fine, it’s sunny… But hey, it’s almost spring. Really.

Just don’t look down. NO, DON’T LOOK DOWN!

OK, about that white stuff… 

Yes, it’s snow. It’s February, and we’re in Finland, of course there’s snow! But it’s sunny, and that’s what matters. 

It’s sunny, so spring is in the air. A bit. Just a little bit. I’ll take it.  And don’t forget the daylight. A little bit more daylight every day

Come on, the sun rises before me, that’s something… Yes, I know I work in the evening now, but I still have to get up at a decent time.

No, I don’t get back home before the sun sets, I work in the evening, remember?


Sorry, I got a bit carried away there. I’m practising, you see, for when spring is finally here…

    Our winter has been "sweater weather" most of the time and today is supposed to be 70 degrees. It's almost spring and was never winter in Delaware. #TopoftheWorldLinkup

      We have so little sunlight in winter that we tend go a bit crazy in spring when the days start getting longer. Sort of an ocverdose, I guess…

    Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I can't believe that it is almost spring in Finland. We just got a new load of snow and more is in the forecast. Nice color combination btw.

      Well, I may have jumped the gun here a bit, it's only February… I think we'll see some snow still (and rain, and more snow etc), but at least it's getting sunny.

    Isn't it lovely watching it get lighter each day? And at least you have sun. It's very murky here in London.I like the colour mixture that your wearing here Tiina. Thank you for joining celebrating style. I hope you come back

      Oh yes, having more daylight makes such a difference to my mood. But it's still quite cold, and there's snow. It's just very sunny, I find late winter so difficult, I'm so impatient for spring and warmer weather.

    I am for sure. I want to get into lighter brighter clothes and sit outside people watching. And Aperol drinking of course.
