TRAVEL: Olavinlinna & Cold-Weather Summer Style
I can finally share all the magical moments of my trip having just returned to Brooklyn and regular wi-fi access! With my husband and in-laws, I traveled to Finland to see the midsummer night sun and the Aida opera in a castle built in 1475 from as well as celebrate my wedding with my Finnish family and friends.
Style tips for traveling north in the summer:
- Dress warm, but stick with light and bright colors: I’m wearing a long-sleeve peace silk dress by Ivana Basilotta that’s incredibly warm and light at the same time, Cri de Coeur studded vegan thigh-high boots in beige and H&M Conscious Collection blazer in nude (still available in some stores). The studded beige handbag is by Matt&Nat (old) and underneath it all I have navy thights by American Apparel. Outside, I also wore a Vaute Couture gray jacket (old).
- Carry a colorful umbrella: mine is from Marimekko.
- Wear your hair up: a side braid looks chic, but lasts all day even when it’s rainy and windy outside
