Even though it has been quite warm taking into account the time of the year, I have already upgraded my beanie collection. I bought these two HUF's creations from the store I'm working in, Beamhill. I couldn't make up my mind which one is more perfect so I took them both. I'm so loving the color mixtures that trick the eyes: The "grey" one is actually black and white & the "purple" one is made of red and blue yarns!
I managed to lose two of my favorite scarfs while moving out, so I had to find new scarf asap when the autumn wind started to blow freezingly. Luckily, I spotted this wine red scarf on H&M's rack and fell in love with it right away. It's in the best color for this autumn and it's enough long to warm up on the coldest days. One of my favorites right now!
I have drooled over Chelsea boots for ages and now I finally have them in my closet! I found this pair from H&M (again..) and it was the last one of them AND it was on sale! I couldn't resist buying them even though they were one size too big for me, but hey, there's enough space for wool socks then, right?
Maybe I should have named this post "H&M Haul" since this pair is from there too... Can't stop loving the best, can you...? Anyways, these two have my name written all over them so there was no way I could have left them in the store. I mean, these may be the most beautiful and coolest shoes I have ever had. The model, the patent leather, the plastic sole. Everything. Just perfect.
You can take a guess where did I find this beautiful backpack... It's my first since primary school, but I had the feeling that it's time to test something new. It has been great so far, I had forgotten how practical backpacks are. The best thing about it is the color that matches perfectly with the scarf above!

Michael Kors' collection was definitely one of my favorites from New York Fashion Week. I have always liked Kors' classic but modern style and fortunately the next spring's Ready-to-Wear collection didn't let me down.
The catwalk was full of breathtaking outfits that made me wish even more that spring would already be here. The riot of color created an illusion of a blooming spring meadow and just by watching the collection I could feel the spring sun on my cheeks. Floral patterns played the main role in the fashion show but stripes and gingham were seen a lot too. The shoe-wear were mostly simple ankle-wrapped flats which worked perfectly with the beautifully classic cuts of the outfits. I loved the play of the defined waists and over-scale trenches. The looks with the plain tops and blossoming tulle dancer skirts made my heart beat the most. The white/light blue simple shirts made the colors of daffodils, wisteria and geraniums pop out even more and the belt detail was a cherry on top of the cake, it completed the looks.
Overall, the collection was really luminous with it's bright colors and beautiful details. Kors succeeded to catch the feeling of a sunny spring day perfectly.
Here's my favorites from the show, check out the whole collection from Style.com.

Sunday at Kiasma, a contemporary art museum, where roses are made of candy, lights make you different, mirror selfies look weird and you can test how does it feel when a hundred ribbons touch you.
Things that I picked up today: Bubbletea & beautiful b/w postcards.
