Blue and white stripes represent the essence of nordic summers to a tee; the freshness of the colour and the archipelago vibes it reflects. Last week, Mr. N and I took a day trip to Hanko to escape the hassle of the city. The weather was beautifully sunny and we enjoyed some typical Scandinavian seafood on a terrace and had some frozen yogurt for dessert on a pier watching the boats drift by. Hanko is a lovely summer town with charming old wooden houses and cute little nautical style shops. My favourite thing about this dress is the style of the back and the deep relaxed pockets in the front. The dress has a very nordic element to it, its simple but interesting.
