forest fairies.

In July this year me and a few of my best friends did a photoshoot in N├Ámme forest in Tallinn, Estonia (where I am from). Can you believe that there is a beautiful pine forest in the middle of the capital city? Well, not exactly in the middle and more in the suburbs but anyway. In London the closest you can get to nature is parks which are lovely but often crowded and don't really offer the peace and tranquillity you get in forests.
For the shoot we decided to go with natural, slightly hippie-themed, free-spirited look and I really love the results. All of us look actually so different but in the shoot it is like together we form this beautifully fitted puzzle and could easily be sisters :-) Thank you for my lovelies - Marika, Laivi and Anne for this beautiful evening. We had a lot of fun shooting barefoot in the woods!
I (the readhead!) was wearing the dress by Kate Moss x Topshop (which is now sold out) and headpiece by Expressions.

Karmen Pedaru for IRO Paris A/W 2014

OK, I am a well-known rather obsessed fan of Estonian beauty Karmen Pedaru but this campaign is truly beyond perfection. Parisian label IRO has been on my radar for quite a while - their effortlessly cool collections are so easy to wear and their campaigns bring across that slightly edgy French chic so well. Karmen pulls off that scruffy but super-stylish look so perfectly - it is refreshing to see her fronting a campaign which is so different from her usual work for Michael Kors. MK is all about the classic American glamour that looks good on the pictures but the styling is not really my cup of tea. I really-really want every single piece presented in this IRO campaign and Karmen makes it all even more delicious. I am pretty sure that the distressed white tank top is going to be mine very soon!
And don't even get me started on her hair! I have been trying to grow mine out for a while now but this cooler-than-cool messy chop has made me think about a possible visit to my hairstylist very soon!
What do you think of this look on Karmen?
