THE FASHION FILES: STYLISH SNOW & WINTER GEAR

snowgear12

We are taking a family trip to Lapland in Finland later this month. This destination has been on my wish list for a long time and now our son is six I think he is old enough to be enjoying a trip like this. We will be doing lots of activities such as husky and reindeer sledge tour. And we are hoping to get to see the Northern lights. It can be extremely cold in Finland (last week it was -40 °C (-40 F) so we need to get appropriate winter gear. In cold conditions you should wear layers to beat the cold: thermal clothing as a base layer (preferably made of merino wool), then a fleece jacket and then a water and winter proof jacket & ski pants. As I was browsing the web for good snow & winter gear I decided to create a post about this topic.

THE FRIDAY FASHION FILES: COAT RED

redcoat1

It was last year that I started to see images of women in a red coat on Pinterest. I am normally not into bold colors but I loved the combination of red with a white blouse and a blue jeans, or with a black outfit. So I got myself a red coat this year, I purchased this one from French label Sandro and it is beautiful (it is also available here and here). You can see more red coats at the end of this post, Happy Friday!

THE FASHION FILES: FASHION FROM ICELAND

icelandicfashion5

Fall is in the air and it is time again to stock up on winter clothes. I recently bought this woolen Icelandic sweater from Farmers Market and I love it. Farmers Market is an Icelandic design company and clothing brand founded in 2005 by a young artist couple – a designer and a musician. With strong ties to the vibrant Icelandic music and design scene, the Farmers Market design concept and inspiration draws from Icelandic roots, combining classic Nordic design elements with chic modernity. Natural fabrics, craftmanship and respect for the environment are key values of the brand. Authentically styled, yet sophisticated and wearable, the clothing is suited for a wide range of occasions, outdoor activities as well as city life. Designer Bergthora Gudnadottir: “We place ourselves at a junction. A place where heritage meets modernity, the national meets the international, and the countryside meets the city. We find this an exciting place to explore.”
