Letters from Finland: Last Call for Helsinki

My dear travellers and fashionistas, today I have prepared for you a special treat, because I realized that I missed to share with you one fashion-travel story from Finland. This post will also be the real ending of my incredible adventure that I experienced in the capital of Finland – Helsinki. For those who first read my blog and want to learn more about Helsinki, read the previous posts on this link, I’m sure you will love this lovely city in Northern Europe and will dissolve your heart.

Some people say that memories are not so important and after some time they will disappear from our memory… I disagree with this because I am sure that all the beautiful things that happened to us, all journeys and important memories remain in our subconscious and only is the question of the moment when our mind will again decide to remind us of those same nice moments! 🙂 Since my adventure in Finland, it’s been a couple of months ago, but I still remember the crazy wind that was blowing during our last day in Helsinki.

I would like to back again there, before I start with today’s post I would like to say huge thank you to wonderful Elisabeth from My Helsinki and that I was the part of amazing #MyHelsinkiResidence project. Also, I would like to say thank you to all partners of this project and I hope we will work again soon!

I remember well that we took photos of this same outfit for two days because of the wind and I managed to make some nice pictures for this post, but I completely forgot about these pictures because after Finland I quickly got sick, and the trip to Cyprus followed up after and I completely has forgotten about these pictures. A couple of days ago, a boy from Bosnia and Herzegovina sent me an e-mail that he saw a nice black jacket in the first post from Helsinki, but he did not find a fashion post from Finland with that same jacket and he sent my picture in that black jacket as attachment.

After reading the email, I was not lazy, so I opened my blog and started looking for a post with this black jacket, so I realized that I actually forgot to post these pictures… Helsinki, a cold city with a warm heart was the perfect city for taking pictures of this fashion combination.

I am from those people who think that black colour looks much better on other persons than me and I have always tried to avoid black and grey colours. My mom who always had a great influence on my fashion taste and style always said one and the same sentence: “Marko, my dear child black is not the right colour for you… You are guy with the darker shade of hair, the black colour looks much better on blond person. Simply black on black, it doesn’t go so easily! “. That’s why I’ve always tried to not wear black clothes, maybe I used to have some black trousers, but I was trying to make clothes which going closer to my face to be brighter and cheerful colors, just to look more refreshing.

My best friends from Burberry wanted to send us blogger early gifts for Christmas so I got this jacket at my home address, which I really did not hope for because they wanted to surprise us with a gift for the holidays, and we had the opportunity to complete the outfit after with some other stuff. Since I picked out these gray pants that you see on the pictures and one sweeter orange color, I realized that I made a big contrast, so I decided to take the photos of a sweater another time, so I did not carry it on a trip to Finland.

Honestly, I was planning to shoot this outfit with one turtleneck sweater, which I bought in Zara, so I took it on the trip with me. Like everything else in my life, everything is so complicated, so I managed to burn my favourite roll neck sweater with the help of iron machine that I did not obviously knew to use it properly, because it was totally different with a bunch of options, I hoped that I managed to fit everything nicely, but the wool that sticked to the plate of the iron, so the sweater was burned there…

I was wrong, it was my favorite a piece in the wardrobe, since my skin is very sensitive to the wool, it’s easy to notice an allergic reaction on my skin somehow I succeeded with the softener after a couple of washes to make it good for my skin. Now that same sweater was destroyed, after 3 years of careful using and storage…

After half an hour of criticising myself and few chocolate bites, the photographer told me that he noticed in the past days that there was some special sale note in the window of the Zara, so we went out of the apartment without breakfast and went to Zara. There I found this sweater that fit perfectly and for 12 euros I got a new favourite fashion piece from Zara. Someone will say that the sweater may be a bit “old” for me, but I liked it at first sight and I think it can be combined easily because of these pastel colours stripes.

The last day in Helsinki ended, little Marko almost late for his flight, because the last train with which I could get on time went, luckily the tourist board had an understanding for me, so they helped me with the transport and everything was better than what I could imagine would ever be in my life. Sometimes people are needed for true happiness much less than some people think. I wanted to make nice photos, but I did not think about the time as always…

My dear ones, once again we have come to the end of this special fashion outfit post from Helsinki. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and soon I will start collaboration with one worldwide airline and this year will be full of adventures and excitements, so be prepared!

Last day in Helsinki was so sad because we left our Aallonkoti apartment where we had feeling like we are at our home. Thank you for having us for a wonderful week, I hope we will see again!
