Pocket full of sunshine

The Indian Top:
[ Romwe ]


This turned out to be bigger than I thought, and has pockets !
And it's long enough to wear as dress, or with shorts. Cool.

These images seem like they're not very high quality, because something
happened to them while editing. I should have saved them as png-files..
Oh well, you get the point of the top/tunic ^^ What's else in the photos,
my boyf's guitar and my mint bag laying around the sofa. It happens to
us [me] a lot, since I have many things going on and don't always notice
everything that could be taken out of the camera view. Well minimalistic
shots are oh so boring anyways. :D And you get to see a bit of reality.


The Balcony
 [ little spring update ]

[ TIP : vintage find scarf as tablecloth. ]

I found that old bamboo-curtain from our storage, left by previous tenant.
It doesn't work and was forgotten there, but I thought of new purpose for it:
privacy screen to our balcony, since there's neighbours so close that I have a
really uncomfortable feeling while sunbathing or even having a cup of coffee.
This looks pretty nice right ? It's not long enough to cover the whole railing,
but at least some part - to give a bit more private spot. We still need to get
our new balcony furniture set there. Then it's a really cozy place to read or
do crafty things when weather gets warmer. We did have mid day coffee
there today ! What a piece of luxury. I love hanging out there on spare time,
with or without friends. Hey we need a [electric] barbeque set too haha !


Lyhykäinen suomennos:
Ensimmäisissä kuvissa Romwen tilauksen toppi, tai tunika.
Se on sen verran pitkä että pystyy käyttämään mekkona,
tai shortsien kaverina. Kuvanlaatu kärsi muokatessa mutta
näillä mennään, selvää jotenkuten kun varmasti näistä saa ^^

Parvekekuvissa tee-se-itse -ideat kirpparilöytö vintagehuivi
käytössä pöytäliinana ja vanhasta bambu-verhosta väsätty
osittainen näkösuoja, kun on nuo naapurit aika lähellä - ei kovin
paljon ole kehdannut siellä aurinkoa ottaa tai muutenkaan istua
kavereitten kanssa tai yksin. Vielä pitäisi parvekekalusteet tuoda
sinne niin olisi mukava paikka lueskella tai askarrella, kunhan keli
vielä tästä lämpenee.. (kun ei ole lasituksia tuulee tuolta satamasta)
Ja miksei vaikka sähkögrillikin heh ! Tänään päästiin jo nautiskelemaan
tuolla auringossa päiväkahvit, ai että mitä luksusta. :P

Follow Indie by Heart.

  3. Ahhh, midday coffees are the best! I had mine yesterday with breakfast by the beach - it was just splendid! :)

    And aren't you just ADORABLE? You're so cute in that Indian top - it looks so perfect and comfortable ... an pockets are always a bonus! :)

    Yay, and I now have a few days off after working throughout the Easter weekend - thank you for your kind words hehe. I'm sure you understand what it's like since your mum is in the health industry!

    I feel so silly asking you this but I don't even know what you're studying? I feel like we've corresponded for far too long for me to not know such things. ;)

    Sending lots of love to Finland!!

  8. Oooh, I'm so glad you showed us this, because I was just debating over that top from Romwe!
    I do love the Indian on it and the colorfulness. Plus, the length would make it a good shirt/dress for summer haha. Paired with shorts it'll be perfect!

  14. Onpa kivan näköinen intiaanitoppi! Teillä paistaa jo aurinkokin hyvin parvekkeelle. Tulisipa jo lämpimämmät ilmat, jotta saisi vaihtaa villakangastakin nahkatakkiin. :)

  17. I think balconies are the best part of a house: it is fantastic sitting there specially at night and take a look at the city passing by!
    Have a nice day

    Cute balcony you got over there.
    I've a (very) small garden myself and love to just sit there and enjoy the fact that I can ;)

    Have a lovely day!

  24. very cute top...it does look like a dress. I like the red indian motiff...looks really cool on you. Your place looks cozy... a little mess makes it look more like a home. Your balcony is a nice and comfortable corner...i like the scarf as a table cloth, looks like a great place for an afternoon siesta. Thanks for dropping by my blog by the way. Following you.

  36. Ihana postaus! Luksusta kun teillä on parveke, Helsingin keskustassa voi vain uneksia sellaisesta! Bambuverho toimii mutta ehkä jostain voisi löytyä jonkinlainen parempi ja kattavampi ratkaisu kyseiseen ongelmaan, ehkä esim. markiisikangas (http://www.verhomatto.fi/verhopalvelu/parvekepinnasuojat). Olen samaa mieltä kanssasi siitä että jotain yksityisyyttä pitää olla!

    Kiitos herttaisesta kommentista! Talvipuutarha on ihanan "pieni" paikka oikeastaan, sehän koostuu kahdesta kasvihuoneesta. Pienenä sitä ajatteli että onpas tämä puutarha iso, tyyliin "se ei lopu koskaan" mutta isona huomaa että sen kyllä kiertää nopeasti jos ei oikeasti jää katsomaan ja ihailemaan jokaista kasvia/kukkaa. Itse rakastan kukkia ja pidän kasveista joten pidän todella paljon tästä paikasta! Nyt siellä oli paljon ihmisiä, mutta yleensä, kun ei ole pääsiäisaika, niin siellä on sen verran vähän ihmisiä että siellä pystyy kiertämään rauhassa kukkia ihastellen. Se on sellainen piilopaikka, rauhallinen keidas keskellä kaupunkia :) Kannattaa nähdä!

  45. That looks like a wonderful place to just sit down and unwind at the end of the day or a place to just relax when you wake up in the morning! I would really love to have a balcony!

    How's the weather over there right now? Is it spring at the moment?
