// Emerald //

You're right, the knit in my last post is amazing. I love it - well, would I otherwise have bought it at all? I doubt so. However, there is - thank god for these wearing-a-sweater-is-the-right-answer weathers - one knitted sweater hanging on my clothing racks that I love even more than the mentioned pretty fluffy dip-dyed thing. It's this one, Acne's emerald beauty that I got as a christmas present from my boyfriend.

I try not to wear this sweater everyday. I also suspect that I will be trying to stop myself from wearing these Reed Krakoff heels everyday later on this summer. Never have I owned such a pair of 12cm heels without plato that wouldn't hurt as ****, but now I've got one of those miraculous pairs in my closet. Love their silhouette, big buckle and wide strap over my foot. For 170 euros from Such a catch. My bf didn't consider this pair (to be honest, he rarely considers any of them as a true find) as an unbelievable saving, even though I tried to explain him that
1) retail price 690 euros --> 170 euros = saving 520 euros (!!!);
2) only one pair left = have to act super fast; and
3) only my size left = True Match
What is actually weird, is that they just don't get this easy logics.

And they even make black jeans and a grey t-shirt look cool as anything.

Finally it's so warm here that I can at least imagine wearing just a knit and not a parka all buttoned up and the whole look finished with a big scarf. For curiosity, we live in this "former working people district transforming into a hipster district with all its rough peculiarities" in Helsinki and therefore every now and then a new cozy restaurant or coffee bar or small art gallery opens its doors.

We went to test restaurant Alppitori, one of the newcomers. It is a little sister to restaurant Tori in Punavuori. I have to admit that I had been there already before - ate lunch with Johanna - and I was pleasantly surprised by the food and its price both times. For a lunch I had chicken salad with lime chili (fresh bread served free) and for Sunday's late lunch I ate chèvre sandwich, I was full for next 5 hours for 9 euros. Not bad, and both dishes were super hyper good. Find their Facebook HERE and go test if you're strolling at the hoods!
