Knotted Details

Wether it's by tying a belt or finding a garment with perfect attention to detail, one of this season's must try detail is undoubtedly tying a knot. Lengths of minimalistic fabric or a leather belt twisted and tied... it doesn't really matter, but knots are on my mind!

Elle Galan 2016

Last night we danced, ate food, stood in wonder in front of the most amazing dessert table I think I'll ever be faced with and celebrated the best of Swedish fashion at Elle Galan 2016 (the Swedish Elle Style Awards). 

Never one to shy away from adversity and fear (which was a very real feeling when the thermometer hit -20c yesterday) I still opted for skimpy high heeled sandals, bare legs and a less than warming but very sartorially pleasing cami. What don't I do for fashion? Yeah, take that Swedish winter!

Holiday Mood

bikinis and swimsuit

The holiday mood is well and truly setting in now. In about an hour I'm off to the airport and off to Croatia for 7 days of sunshine, discovering island towns and lazy days by the pool.

For Croatia I favoured classic stripes, an elegant black swimsuit and a simple navy bikini with a playful pattern from COS. As per usual the colour scheme is dark and simple, a tiger can't change his stripes and all that... Although a touch of colour will be brought in through accessories.

The Edit: Soft Neutrals

Right now all I'm dreaming of is neutral tones of sandy beige and camel. The most boring of non-colours is the most exciting thing this season, no other colours needed.
