Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all you beautiful readers! I thought I'll share one of my favorite Chrismas campaigns this year and thank you all for reading this little blog of mine. Hope you all are having a loving, happy evening.

Pieni joulutervehdys teille kaikille ihanille lukijoille, toivottavasti vietätte tunnelmallista iltaa/ God Jul till alla mina fina läsare! Hoppas ni har en mysing kväll. xxx

Topshop and Kate Bosworth was also kind enough to send me a little personalized message that was too cute to not share!

A big juicy party

Woah time has just been flying by in the lead up to Christmas, but one night that I managed to slow down a bit, was the night I hosted a little shopping event over at Juicy Couture’s Regent street store. We had Champagne, shoe cookies and lipstick sorbet (!) Whilst welcoming their most recent, and in my opinion - the best, jewellery collection to date.

Was so wonderful meeting many of you again, thanks to everyone that came down. And if you are struggling with some last minute Christmas shopping, you now know where to turn.

I wore a JUICY COUTURE dress and jewellery and JIMMY CHOO heels.

I was obviously hard on Instagram too! you can mind me @5inchandup, naturally.

That dress

KAREN LONDON jewellery

I guess we’ll call this week my little blog break for Christmas.. I was not planning to go MIA but the last week before I managed to fly home to Finland, there was a million things to do. Luckily I am here now but not unfortunately in Spain like I was a few weeks ago, where I wore my Three Floor dress for the first time. A good red dress must one of the best investments as it was the first thing I folded in my Christmas holiday suitcase.

Hope you all are doing well and making the most of the festive season, more in season stuff coming up soon.

Skinny slouch

H&M TREND coat
COS MEN’S shirt
LEVI’S jeans
ZARA shoes

A casual one from this week. I fell in love with Levi’s brown coated jeans but assumably so did many others, as I discovered they where out of my size in this style that I so desperately wished for. So since I was already set on these I decided to try to make a size too big work. Maybe we’ll call it a neater version of boyfriend jeans which is a new style in my wardrobe and always a little bit exciting.

A seasonal plus

Isn't a big knit and a skit the best combo this season? Love wearing it with pants underneath too. I know the sales are just around the corner (YESS!!) but I could not risk missing out on this Topshop Unique knit as I loved the collection to bits, does it pass as a Christmas knit?

But in all honesty I did wear a coat too, I am only human.

Spats for the people

H&M coat
VINTAGE sweater
ZARA skirt


Happy feet does kind of equal a happy mind. I don’t know when I would have last owned a pair of high suede boots but gosh this is one of the best pair I’ve seen in a long time. It still amazes me that I can almost get away with bare legs in December, normally in Finland I would be knee-high in snow not studded suede. So I am fully enjoying my first pair of Stuart Weitzman’s! Shoemaker who is known for his comfortable shoes and deservedly winner of this years Footwear News Lifetime Achievement Award.

But on to the best news - I am now teaming up with Stuart Weitzman to give all my EU and UK readers a 100€/£80 gift card to their online store! Just enter 5INCHANDUPSW at checkout. The code is valid on all styles, including my spats. Happy shopping!

Clothes show live with Nelly

I’ve been spending the past few days in Birmingham, experiencing Clothes Show Live for the first time! I’m here with Nelly, who is one of the sponsors of the event. Apart from showing my Nelly collection and meeting some amazing readers, I’ve also been on the Nelly Style Stage talking about my design experience with them, collaborations and a bit about how 5 inch and up got started.

If you are planning to visit Clothes show Live you can spot me on stage again tomorrow 11.30 and Tuesday at 16.00, or come and say hi to our Nelly stand in hall 20. See you there!

Yesterday I wore 5 INCH AND UP x NELLY ‘Rust’ knit, ANTON HEUNIS necklace, RIVER ISLAND jeans and NICHOLAS KIRKWOOD pumps.

Pink lamb

I've been staying warm in this pink fluff lately. One of these pieces that I can’t travel with because it takes up half a suitcase, so I had to wait for the temperature to drop enough here in London - well we’re there. I talked about Three Floors on the blog before but this winter’s collection was the best so far, with excitement I wait to see what they come up with next!
