Spring doesn’t mean its not going to be cold, it doesn’t mean its going to be sunny. From chilly mornings to warm afternoons, to colder evenings, it can at times be challenging to puzzle together a looks that fits all criteria. Layering is a necessity, however, balancing the right amount of pieces is a part of the challenge.

Being the sun worshipping person that I am, as soon as spring arrives I’m already thinking of the perfect summer wardrobe. Although I’d love to fast forward to summer, I do my best to enjoy the seasons and seasonal pieces, but that doesn’t mean I do it according to the books.

That’s why I enjoy layering classical summer pieces with seasonal pieces around this time of the year. As mentioner previously, KappAhl’s Vintage collection holds a variety of lovely summer items – and as you can see, they’re versatile as well. This crochet top is just as versatile for a windy day in the city, as well with a nice skirt when the summer kicks in – or why not wearing it on the beach over the bikini? Truth is, there are many possibilities and at the end of the day we’re the only ones setting the bar. Right? What are you dressing up tips for in-between-tricky-weather-conditions?

What to Wear on a Rainy Day

[separator type=”space”]

There is a Swedish saying going something like ”There is no bad weather, only bad choice of clothes”, there have been numerous occasions where I have argued against this saying due to the fact that I haven’t the right choice. Well, until now.

I was recently introduced to the Swedish  brand Tretorn, who design both jackets and shoes that are designed according to ”bad” weather. However, the perk being that one doesn’t have to compromise on their style for the comfort and not getting soaking wet as the skies cries.

The best part is the shoes, white sneakers are my to-go shoes and what’s more annoying than having your perfectly white kicks being compromised by the weather changes? Tretorn design low-cut sneaks made out of canvas, which is perfect for those days the weather app predicts rains.

Just when you though the 70’s-trends where over, it blowed up even bigger right in the face. Last year, the 70’s revival made a real comeback and is still going stronger than ever.

 

Yes, flares, patterns, mixed textures, boho are just a few words that are synonymous with the fashion worlds (apparently) most popular era. KappAhl has created a limited edition collection, Vintage Stories with strong pieces that sets the tone of a look while not loosing ones personal style.

 

Being more of a minimalistic (Scandi) type who loves urban summers in the city wether I’m exploring the streets of Paris such as in these photos or back home in Stockholm, I like to add pieces that has personality and a story. Speaking of story, Vintage Stories is inspired by romantic vintage pieces from the 70’s and I have a thing for stories, they add value and even if you’re not a full-blown-70’s-gal just like me. While walking down the streets of Paris, I found myself imagining how Parisiennes looked back in the 70’s and how it was back then. One thing I’m sure of, it must have been an interesting time to be alive, don’t you think?

Pièce de résistance

sara-che-palais-royal-paris-maje-red-dress-leather-jacket-iro-sneakers-celine-sunglasses

 

I belive we all have several different facetts that reveal themselves in different circumstances, sometime a glimpse of them shines through our choice of clothes whereas sometime it comes through the way we act. There can be small fragments, invisible to the eyes of others, yet we tend to recognise them as it shines through – but somehow we ignore their existence.

It’s almost as we’re shifting between different personalities, some argue that some people brings out certain sides out of us, whereas I’d like to argue that we are comfortable in different ways each other. The common denominator is a mutual ground where two people are so comfortable with each other, and thereby allow themselves be who they are for that moment.

There have been so many times where I have questioned why we filter ourselves, our personalities, our way of being, they way we wanna live to the point where how we dress. Truth is, I’ve blamed Sweden and its mentality for forcing its way of ‘lagom’ on me – to the point where i don’t know where I start and where these forced ideas stop. Regardless of my accusations, the truth remains that its only our own responsibility to be free. No once can do it force us and its pointless to point finger on things one can’t change. We just need to find our own truth and stick to them.

Therefor, I’ve found it easier to approach my truth as tapping into an alter-ego, its another side of me, doesn’t necessary have to be an altered state of me, but maybe its a side I’m not confident enough to introduce to the world. I’m always struck by ideas of how one perceive oneself to how other perceive one. Looks can be deceiving, we judge and categories a person just by looking at them before the person has even had the chance to open their mouth.

The girl in the pink Stine Goya is a colourful person, filled with life and energy. That energy is a part of her curiosity, and eagerness to get to know the world better. She’s always intrigued by whats waiting around the corner, or the far horizon, the unknown is almost like a power that calls on her. Although she’s playful, she carries herself with grace as she has learned to appreciate female role models with such characteristics. And when she manages to balance these two opposing forces, she feels her equilibrium. Shining, in full force.

Maybe your thinking, how is it possible that this girl who’s been blogging for a couple of years and had a life-long love relationship to fashion is not be entirely free? Yes, I ask myself that question from time to time. Do you feel completely free in who you are, the way you dress and the life you’ve chosen for yourself? What would you like to change, or to stop suppressing? Can you even relate to my story?

And as for this second part of my Parisienne series, who do you see on these pictures. Take a look, a closer look and tell me, who is she? As always, there is nothing more gratifying to share a story and reading about yours in return, which why I look forward to read your thoughts. This time, more than ever before.

Alter Ego

Each time the aircraft is flying over Paris as its about to land at Charles De Gulle, a feeling takes over me. It resembles a feeling of coming home, yet with more gitter to the point that I just want to stand up and run to the exit as soon as the plane has made its way to the airport.

Oh Paris, there is truly something special about you and every time I visit the notion of how deeply I’d like to live there, even for e few years grows stronger and stronger. Aside from the obvious that it’s the city where all things culture, gastronomy, art, music, architecture and fashion meet – Paris has that perfect city tempo that I find myself always drawn too.

[/column]
[column]

Each time, I learn new things about myself as the days unfolds. Its like if there is nothing censoring me, not that anything is actually censoring me back home home in Stockholm other that I feel I’m censoring myself. There are time’s where I allow bits and pieces of me come through in the way I dress –  but those occasions are rare, and there is no one else to blame but myself. As each look from Paris is being revealed, you’ll have the chance to get to know me better by explaining more in depth what the clothes/look is portaging and maybe some background to the story. I believe that we all have various alter ego’s, some more and some less and some of us allow them to come through while others aren’t aware of their existences.

alter ego
ˌaltər ˈɛɡəʊ,ˌɒlt-,ˈiːɡ-/
noun
1. a person’s secondary or alternative personality.
”in the flesh she is a million miles from her photographic alter ego”
2. an intimate and trusted friend.

The story behind this beautiful Stine Goya set is a girl who loves colors, and when she wears them she feels as if she’s wearing her colors instead of holding them in. The colors are there on display to show her personality, her mood but also what state of min she is. The silhouette of the clothes is also an extension of her, but it displays the actual style she’s going for that day. Whether she’s going for grocery shopping or having a late dinner, the colors and silhouettes tells the world who she is that day.

 

So, who was she this day? Please share your thoughts in comments below, and I will answer you right away with which ones of my alter egos I was channeling that day.
