The last of the summer wine

This weekend I celebrated the end of summer (Venetian festival, as they call it) up north with my boyfriend and his family. This included walking around the old town and the market square, traditional activities such as viewing a rowing contest, high jumping (a family tradition...),eating out at a lovely sailing club and shooting fireworks at night. We also went out for a midnight drive, which was pretty spectacular: the coastline was dotted with candles as far as the eye could see and fireworks went off at regular intervals.
Since the town where H's family is from, Kokkola, is pretty far north it was a 6 hour drive both ways. On Friday we made the most of the time and relaxed: long naps and a movie (Trainspotting, which I HIGHLY recommend!). Today I was fairly well rested, so I decided to study for my matriculation exams instead, while of course taking breaks to observe the gorgeous summery countryside.
Perfect ending to a perfect summer.

And here's a huge EXPLOSION of photos:

Friday outfit: black playsuit, dad's jacket, felt hat, biker boots

ASOS earring (hot air balloon one)

Saturday outfit: Gina Tricot poncho, Zara velvet shorts, Vila shirt and my gorgeous thrifted bikers.

H's cousin's puppy

Saturday evening: basic sequined shift dress, H&M block heels

There is also a bunch of very unflattering pictures taken of my and H napping in the car, but I think it's better that nobody ever sees them.

I hope you all had an incredible week end :)
Lots of love from a very tired Ninja.
