Isn't it great to see this coming back? I used to love this look (I was a teenager then), could I pull it off again? It seems to be more chic now. With high-wasted pants, a jacket, a statement necklace? But hmmm, I am still doubtful if it would suite me again. Have you tried it?

While in Finland I "discovered" this wonderful brand. The colours alone inspire you to enter the shop. Now of course I know this brand is quite well known and has quite a few shops around the world. I for one am so happy I now know of it. And of course, both a few beautiful and special items from the current collection - including the dress shown here. I love it.

A few quotations from the Marimekko Company
"It’s a couple of years before Viljo and Armi Ratia’s company Printex becomes Marimekko, but Armi already has a clear idea of the future. "One has to dream," Armi says. "And one must stand out from the rest."
"It is our intention to bring our fashion shows to the world’s fashion capitals on a more frequent basis, and we are delighted to start in Tokyo where the crowd of Marimekko friends has been growing and growing over the years,” says Noora Niinikoski, Head of Fashion Design of Marimekko.

This morning I went for a morning-swim (at 7.20am). The water....hmmm.... quite chilly at first, but after a while it was divine. My weekend started with the appreciation for the Caribbean weather. I know it is cold and snowing in some places, so we need to appreciate the warmth wherever we can find it.....even if it is all the way in Morrocco for some people ;) So I decided to share some of this island beauty of Curacao with you (see images 2,4 and 6)
Tomorrow I will be starting my photography course, painting a Chichi (more on that to follow) and hopefully enjoy a few more swims.
Have a splendid weekend.
Look for the details.

A beautiful collection.
Image two, a beautiful set of peonies.
Yesterday instead of going on the boat we did quite a few things around the house.
Including some gardening. So wonderful to be out with the plants and the cool breeze.
Woke up in a mood of whites and pink.
Hope you had a beautiful weekend as well.
Enjoy the week.

I hope you woke up to a beautiful morning.
Have a splendid week.
Thank you for visiting :)
It is always such a pleasure.
