Like it or not, what we dress in is a direct reflection of who we are personally, socially, and historically.

Helsinki, 4 degrees



Some days ago I stumbled upon something that I just felt like I have to share with you readers! Have you heard of Dressember? Dressember is a month of dresses, ideal for someone like me who loves dresses! 

Joitakin päiviä sitten törmäsin liikkeeseen, jonka minun on yksinkertaisesti pakko jakaa teidän lukijoiden kanssa! Oletteko kuulleet Dressemberista? Dessember on kuukausi, jolloin pukeudutaan vain mekkoihin - siis täydellinen kuukausi mekkohullulle minulle!

Here's the story of Dressember:
Thousands of dresses are adorned around the globe during the month of December each year. Through Dressember, vital funds are raised for International Justice Mission, a human rights organization that works to combat human trafficking and end sexual slavery.

Dressemberin tarinan mukaan tuhansia mekkoja käytetään ympäri maailmaa joulukuun aikana. Dressemberin kautta tärkeät varat menevät oikeaan osoitteeseen, eli International Justice Missionille, joka taistelee ihmisoikeuksien puolesta.


At its core, Dressember is a celebration of femininity and beauty. What could be better than that? So for the rest of December, you'll find me wearing only dresses!

Dressemberin ydintehtävä on juhlia naisellisuutta ja kauneutta. Mikä voisi olla sen parempaa? Niinpä aion pukeutua ainoastaan mekkoihin koko joulukuun ajan!

Here are the rules:
Dressember is meant to be fun; still, a style challenge like this one demands some perimeters. 

Dressemberilla on helpot säännöt: liikkeen on tarkoitus olla hauska, vaikka kyse on tyylihaasteesta.

So, here are the basic rules of Dressember:
- Wear a dress every day for the entire month of December 
- You can repeat dresses 
- When you're working out, cleaning, sleeping, or if you have a job that requires you to wear pants, you can wear pants 
- You can wear skirts, but only over dresses 
- You can wear pants, but only under dresses

Tässä joitakin Dressemberin perussääntöjä:
- pukeudu joulunkuussa joka päivä mekkoon 
- voit pukeutua monta kertaa samaan mekkoon jos sinulla ei ole riittävästi mekkoja jokaiselle päivälle
- kun urheilet, siivoat, nukut, tai olet työpaikalla joka vaatii housuja, voit pukeutua housuihin
- voit käyttää hameita, mutta ainoastaan mekkojen päällä
- voit käyttää housuja, mutta ainoastaan mekkojen alla

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite blog all-time outfits that include dresses. Which is your favorite?

Halusin samalla jakaa teidän kanssa joitakin omia suosikkimekkoja blogivuosien varrelta. Mikä on ollut sinun suosikkisi mekkojeni seasta?



Join in! There's still time!

Liity liikkeeseen, ehdit vielä mukaan!

  5. before I saw the last two dresses I thought I was not able to pick a favourite. but yeah, those last two ARE my favourites because those colours just stole my heart, they're that amazing! I would love to have something like that in my own wardrobe too :) and I'm looking forward to seeing your Dressember dresses too! ;)
