Denim in Södermalm

Denim jacket - H&M, Skirt - American Apparel, Top - Bershka, Sunglasses - Ray-Ban, Shoes - Adidas

First skirt/no tights/summer/hot weather outfit of the season (falls right off the tongue). I love these summer days where the air is around 18 - 22 degrees, the sun is mild and it isn't windy; making you feel like you're almost floating around in your cute outfit. By the way, for our last art class, we were tasked with sewing items of clothing and I wrote: "Disgust is the most appropriate response to most situations". Pretty fitting but at the same time, not at all.

Summer Fashion Trends

Hello, lovely people,

Finally, summer is here and its time for me to share my favourite trends of the season. I don't want to repeat any trends so I suggest you look at my previous spring, winter and autumn trend posts for ideas as to what is still trendy. Note: I've previously mentioned stripes, floral, yellow, corset belts, tulle and ruffles which are all still prominent in stores and worn today.



The perfect summer print is making an entrance amoung brands like House of Holland, Pringle of Scotland and fashion influencers alike. This summer, you will find this adorable retro print on sundresses, trousers and crop tops alike. Recreate this look: ASOS dress, H&M dress and ASOS shirt.


60' Sunglasses

Finally, the sixties are back! I have been waiting and hoping for this decade to reappear and slowly and surely it is. This particular trend is one that has been common the last few seasons with oversized and/or resin sunnies- usually focused on the typical oversized square Chloe-esk 70's frames. This summer's trendiest pair are more focused on the sixties mod style that is either round or slightly oval and often white. Recreate this look: Pull & Bear sunglasses, Magno sunglasses and ASOS sunglasses


Flash dance Shoulder

No, not the off the shoulder/bardot trend but an earlier version. So channel your inner eighties/2013 style by letting your jumper hang loose while exposing a little clavicle. There are many different ways to interpret this trend, some of which you can see above. Not only is this trend cosy and relaxed but also comfortable! Recreate this look: Boohoo oversized t-shirt, Missguided jumper dress and H&M shirt


The Straw Bag

This is a trend that (if you've been reading my blog) you will know that I've been in love with and inspired by for quite some time. Not only that but this bag also happens to be the bag of the season thanks to Fanny Ekstrand who started Chene Bags. This trend comes in three different forms: the net bag, the straw bag and the straw basket a la Jane Birkin. Recreate this look: Granit net bag, Chene straw bag and Little Doe basket


Flat Mules

This is a trend that I've been keeping my eyes on for the past two to three months: flat mules/slip ons/espadrilles/loafers with no back but still like loafers loafers. Not only are they trendy, comfortable and stylish but they are also perfect for the hot summer weather. I'd love to wear them with a pair of loose fitted trousers, a white tee and oversized denim jacket. Recreate this look: ASOS flat mules, Topshop flat mules and Vagabond flat mules


Bright Colours

More retro vibes (mainly 60's-80's) with this trend seen at fashion week. I love this colour block look, in fact; before I was aware of it as a trend, I styled two looks (here and here) around this colour scheme so I am very happy to see it becoming popular. Recreate this look: ASOS orange denim jacket, ZARA yellow dress and Pull & Bear red tote


90's Swimwear

Last year was the year of the 90's (and still a little 70's) but now, we're seeing a little of it trickle back just in time for summer. Styles that characterise the typical nineties suit include a high cut leg, often a low cut back and (in this recent adaptation of the trend) a focus on block colours; mainly primary. Recreate this look: ZARA yellow high leg bathing suit, ASOS high leg swimsuit and Missguided high leg bikini


Espadrille Wedges

A trend that is back from its most recent stunt in the late 2000's/early 2010's. The most summery and comfortable version of high heels on offer that will (especially with a straw bag) create a lovely look channelling the seventies. Recreate this look: Asos white wedges, Pull & Bear jute wedges and Castaner navy espadrille wedges


Raw Hem Denim Skirt

We've seen the denim skirt before but often with a button up front. Now, the skirt is back in its traditional blue form with a twist consisting of a raw hem. There are so many ways to style this piece, maybe a bright sweater or an oversized shirt, a pair of espadrille wedges and your favourite net bag. Recreate this look: River Island raw denim skirt, BDG denim skirt and Urban Renewal blue denim skirt




Cool Bananas

Sweater - Pull & Bear, Dress - ZARA, Heels - H&M, Jewelry - H&M

This is a continuation of the shoot I blogged about on Wednesday. Again with the same bright pop art/fifties vibe that I channelled for this shoot. I am really happy with the result and now know that I want to work as a stylist in my future. so fun, so inspiring.





Sunny Side Up

Dress - ZARA, Heels - H&M, Earrings - Mango

This is a shoot that I styled for a stylist course that I've gone through for the past few week. I had such a great a fun time putting together this look inspired by a pop art/fifties style. Thanks to my gorgeous friend Madeleine for being my model. My other styling will be up on the blog in a few days.






Outfit at the Opera

Coat - Mango, Blouse - Veronica Maine, Trousers - Gina Tricot, Flats - Marzio, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff

My outfit for the Opera last Sunday. Mum, Ida and I went to see the ballet Drömmen om Svansjön (Swan Lake). It was so incredible, touching and gave me goosebumps over and over again. If you have the chance, please do yourself a favour and book tickets!




New Purchase

I finally bought a pair of round ray bans after quite a while of deliberation, such a classic xx

My New ZARA Bag

My new bag from ZARA, a little outside my usual style and comfort zone when it comes to fashion but it's fun, colourful (for my taste) and lets me experiment with my style. Plus, it carries my laptop..




Black n' Denim

Jacket - H&M, Sweater - Monki, Trousers - Gina Tricot, Shoes - Adidas, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Earrings - Mango

My outfit for a trip to Millesgården with the family. Right now, they have such a lovely exhibition called Gerda Wegener & The Danish Girl. I highly recommend you head to Lidingö if you're in the area, and check it out. So lovely. So tragic. So revolutionary. Find more information HERE.

Comfy Prep Look

Coat - H&M, Sweater - & Other Stories, Shirt - Gant, Jeans - Pull & Bear, Bag - ZARA, Shoes - Adidas, Earrings - Mango

A recent favourite look of mine, neutral colours n' wearing a shirt with a sweater. It's a way to keep warm due to wearing layers but also looks classic due to the combo.




Spring Fashion Trends 2017


This is a two-part trend: stripes and reinventing the oversized man's shirt. This season, the classic stripe comes in all shapes, colours, sizes and forms from modern pop art to vintage seventies to classic preppy. The oversized shirt can be seen worn off the shoulders, unevenly, back to front or very oversized. Recreate this trend: ZARA, Monki and Pull & Bear.


The Corset Belt

The corset/lace up belt is a trend born off the runway with bloggers and fashion influencers driving the trend. The belt is often worn to create a silhouette: on top of a coat, a dress or graphic tee for some extra layering and details. Recreate the look: ZARA and Gina Tricot.



Florals for Spring, I know, groundbreaking. Although expected, floral is a pattern that really revives your look after the dull winter months. Recreate this look: H&M, ASOS and Mango.


Large sleeves

Wide flared sleeves are a trend that I think I first wrote about in autumn but they keep reoccurring at shows and ss17 street style. This is a trend that can also come in combination with stripes and recreation of the striped shirt. However, these bell sleeves are often seen on sweaters, blouses and dresses commercially. Recreate this trend: Pull & Bear, ASOS and Mango.



Spring is here and so are bright colours (of course), this season you will see a lot of hot pink and a lot of bright yellow, often worn in the form of a sundress, skirt, purse or tee, four things that really emulate and encourage warmer weather. Recreate this look: ZARA, ASOS and ZARA.


Statement earrings

A style that I've been wearing quite a lot recently: large gold earrings. They are a classic piece that catches the eye but can still be reworn due to their simplicity. Love, love love! Recreate the trend: Mango, ASOS and H&M


Trench coat

The classic trench is back for the spring season after several seasons in the shadows while faux fur and the puffer had their moment. Now, the trench coat is gracing the catwalk and street style shots. Recreate this look: Weekday, & Other Stories and ASOS.


Kitten Heels

Last but not least, we have the kitten heel. For a long time, it's been considered an unattractive trend (much like turtlenecks and Birkenstocks) but now, they are back and better than ever. You'll often see kitten heels with jeans, flowy trousers or knee length skirts for contrast. Recreate this look: Mango, H&M and ASOS.




The Royal Wedding Dress Collection

My auntie and I went to see the Royal wedding dresses at the Royal Palace and then went for lunch in Gamla Stan at Kaffekoppen. So much fun! If you have a chance to see the dresses, you definitely should.
