A weekend to Barcelona

In September girlfriend Justine and I flew to Barcelona for a little weekend getaway! We were invited by Desperados to attend Skyfest, a unique unwed festival in the Spanish mountains with… hot air balloons! It was my very first experience flying a hot air balloon and let’s say it was a moment to remember. Especially because…

My second Copenhagen look

Now that I’ve started sharing my travel diary about our camper roadtrip through Denmark, I just remembered that I have a few extra Danish outfits to share as well! Yay! Also, the Indian Summer feel in these photos will definitely help me through this chilly and grey day. I had been eyeing this dress for…

Camel in Copenhagen

Whoooops, excuse me being MIA for a few days! I had planned a couple of blogposts to update you guys, but since we faced some pretty bad wifi connections on our camper trip, they haven’t made it to the web yet. Let me first of all tell you about the current situation: we’re back home from…

A dreamy holiday look from Croatia

When on holidays, I prefer breezy things, cotton things and nude-coloured things. Pieces that don’t require a lot of accessorizing (or extra work in general) and that make you feel chic and relaxed instantly. This beautiful flowy dress is a perfect example! The subtle stripes, broderie details and off shoulder shape add up to a laid-back…

Aphrodite

Life is full of contradictions, and your closet can be too! You guys know I prefer a simple white shirt dress and slippers over anything when I’m on holidays, and still I decided to do some dressing up in Cyprus. After all, a goddess’ birthplace deserves a bit of attitude, right? You’ve seen another look…

Staying at a hidden Cyprus gem

Welcome to Eveleos Country House, a place where I’d like to spend the rest of Summer. You’ve seen a few peeks of our holiday home booked through Eliza Was Here in my previous Cyprus diary, but I figured that it would be the perfect backdrop for a typical lazy holiday look. You might have read that…

Lounging in luxury

For me, style-wise, this year is all about discovering colours. And one of the combinations that currently make my heart beat faster is baby blue and bright orange. You can go both office-proof and holiday-worthy with this shade parade, and the second is exactly what I did in Cyprus. Although I find it hard to…

Grab a cup of something because it’s a long one! I was invited…

That vintage summer dress

A little question! What do you feel like is the best thing about going on holidays? For me it’s losing track of time in the cutest villages, reading at least two books and wearing all those vintage Summer dresses that have been hiding in your closet for months. The first thing turned out a ridiculously easy thing to do in…

At sunset

Hi guys, this is me casually posing as a Greek goddess in an 80s swimsuit and 70s sunglasses next to the mythic Aphrodite’s Rock. Because that’s how you rolllllll on Cyprus. And although I LOVE this look and these photos, I felt a bit hesitant to post them here. I mean, if I would have had a flatter chest,…

There are plenty of beautiful wine routes on the…

Florals in London

Yesterday you could read all about our second day in London with Eurostar, and of course I took a moment to shoot my outfit as well. This look might not be typical Pielaunio, but a sweatshirt and pyjama pants just felt so comfy to stroll around the city for a full day. And I mean, how pretty are…

London diary, day 1
Travel

I’ve always favoured warmer cities like Barcelona or Florence over cold and grey London, but lately I’ve been starting to appreciate the UK capital city more and more. London has been my destination a couple of times last month (see here!) but since I had plenty of work to do, I didn’t have much time to explore.…

5 things to do in Merida

Oh, Merida. It took us a moment to get used to this city, but in the end we absolutely LOVED it. Merida is the biggest and probably most colourful city in Yucatan, Mexico, and although everything seems super close by on the map, most places are quite a far walk. And as soon as you walk…

Our stay in Cancun
Travel

For our first night in Mexico, we opted for something we’d normally never do: a luxurious resort. But we figured that after a 15 hour journey, it would be extremely relieving to have someone pick us up at the airport and drive us to a place where we wouldn’t have to think about anything. If…

Our Mexico trip, summarized

Where do I start? The crystal clear sea water, the fish tacos on the street or the Maya ruins? The wild flamingos maybe? Or the bright-coloured houses with mural paintings? How about the cave cenotes and the fishing trips? The golf cart taxis? Maybe the beach bars with white swings or the dolphins we spotted from…
