Long, long, long








T-shirt: Monki / coat: Monki / trousers: Topshop / headband: Brandy Melville / sunglasses: Zipper / tote bag: Filippa K / shoes: Converse

I've never had a long coat like this, but when I was in Gothenburg, surrounded by all these people in their wonderful neutral colored clothes and super long coats and cardigans, I just felt like the time was right and I got one. Isn't the way that a city can influence you like that just the greatest thing? Anyway, I just paired it with some very simple basics and I took this Filippa K tote bag, which is currently my favourite, to carry around all of my things. Walking around in the city in those clothes actually made me feel like I kind of belonged there. Do you love this coat as much as I do?

GIRLY




top: & Other Stories /  skirt: River Island / necklace: H&M / socks: Weekday / sandals: Vagabond

Part two of the things I wore this summer but never got a chance to post on my blog! I wore this outfit about two months ago (here) and I think this is probably the most girly outfit I've ever posted on my blog. I bought this skirt at a bloggers closet sale last year but I had never actually worn it before - because even though this may seem like a garment that goes well with anything, I never found the right way to combine it. But when I was going to go out with my brother and his friend Ken, who's a fashion student, Ken told me I had to wear it, and I actually quite liked it. I paired it with a top that's made of some kind of thick fabric, which makes it look quite elegant, a delicate gold necklace, and my favourite socks-and-sandals combo. Do you like this as much as I do? :)

VIDEO: I'm going to study Swedish!


Click here if you can't see the video.

So last week, I suddenly felt like making an entire video in Swedish, so that's what I did. However, I still thought it would be useful if you guys could understand what I'm saying, so I made subtitles as well. Enjoy! :)

T-shirt dress



dress: Weekday /  backpack: Fjällräven Kånken / sandals: Birkenstock / necklace: H&M / ring: & Other Stories

It may be October but since I didn't get the chance to make a lot of outfit pictures during the summer, I thought I'd show you two of my favourite late summer outfits. I'm wearing my relatively new but already beloved T-shirt dress that I bought in Göteborg. I don't think I've ever had a dress that's so comfortable! Whenever I'm wearing it, it kind of feels like I'm wearing pyjamas, and I have to say that is not something I dislike. It's made of a soft, mixed grey fabric (viscose and polyester, according to the label) and you might not be able to tell from the pictures but IT HAS POCKETS! I'm not completely sure why I think dresses with pockets are so exciting, but in a way they make me feel strong and independent, which is not usually a feeling you get when you're wearing a dress. I paired it with a nice backpack and my beloved Birkenstocks to make the whole thing even more comfortable, and some very simple and delicate silver jewelry to give it a chic and feminine touch. What do you think? :)

An autumn playlist!


Autumn seems to have arrived so suddenly this year. One evening last week I was sipping from a cup of tea and enjoying the first autumn feelings all the while listening to some nice music when all of a sudden I thought: wouldn't it be a nice idea to share some of that with the people who read my blog? So I sat down and I made a little autumn playlist for you, with all my favourite songs to listen to on cosy nights in or when you're on your way to work or school. It starts very quietly with a song by the Icelandic band Amiina, and then a little folk-y with a Swedish song called Höstvisa (which means Autumn Song) written by Tove Jansson and Erna Tauro. Besides that, there are some more modern songs by London Grammar, Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors, Destroyer and many more. Most of them are kind of peaceful and accoustic, but some are a little faster as well. Let me know what you think!

You can find it on Spotify by clicking here or by typing Imaginary Autumn in the search box in  the Spotify app :)
