Still in the Layering Game

beatrice trodden - peak performance bomber jacket, adidas stan smith sneakers

Be warned, there is nothing special or stylish about this outfit. Right around this time of year the same thing happens – I totally give up on fashion. Well, not fashion itself, but my personal fashion. It's not spring yet, sure I know it's coming but it's definitely not here and the winter clothes just feel oh so overdone. In this circle of can't be f**dness comfortable, warm and quick is the name of the game. Really it's the fashion industries fault, always looking six months ahead means what I really want is next winters clothes. Now please. I've already spotted a few things that get a tick in the yes box. Something grunge from Ganni, luxe basics from Filippa K, anything Proenza Schouler and maybe some sequins from Preen. But that's in 9 months or so... for now I'll keep piling on the careless layers and wait for spring to appear with its slip dresses, loafers and sunglasses.

Knits and Stuff

beatrice trodden outfit - house of dagmar knit, mih jeans
When I spotted this knitted jumper on the House of Dagmar catwalk for spring/summer 2016 it immediately stuck in my mind. I love the innovative use of the pleated sections of knitted fabric and the cut out shoulders. The perfect combo of cosy and sexy – if such a balance exists.

Elle Galan 2016

elle galan 2016 beatrice trodden

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!

All Black

black outfit - leather skirt and polo neck top

Head to toe black is always a safe bet and mixing textures gives the look more depth and a less "boring" attitude. It seems this leopard can't completely

change it's spots...

Pyjama Dressing – Round 2

Pyjamas are no more relegated to sleep time and are a more than acceptable sartorial choice for stepping out at any time of the day. Luxurious, relaxed and comfy - check, check and check. What isn't there to love about the all day pajama look?  I'm officially declaring myself part of the yes camp!
