While I had been to the Japanese spa outside of Stockholm a few years ago, I was more than excited to accept when River Island asked me to tag along on a 24 hour get-away.

 

 

A group of Stockholm based bloggers left the city around noon to meet up the group of bloggers  from Hollands. Together we has the pleasure of trying River Islands new sport collection, in the most amazing way. During our stay, they had scheduled activities such as the Japanese sport Kendo, and yoga. Between the activities, some got massages while the rest of the group enjoyed the outdoors pools overlooking the beautiful nature.

Knowing my hair was going to be exposed to a lot of humidity, I found it unnecessary to blow-dry it after washing my hair the night before. Never did I imagine getting so many kind compliments via Snapchat, it was also amusing to see peoples reaction when I told them that the curls is my hairs natural habitat. Yes, I blow-dry it and even straighten it a little with a flat-iron. Why? Well, you guys know how it is, when you have straight hair you wish for curls and vice versa.

 

Needless to say, it was an amazing experience. Relaxing and oh-so needed. If I wasn’t in a Japanese robe, i was in a pajama – just to be all about comfort allowed one to relax even more. You guys know how much I love pajamas, having a River Island pajama waiting in my hotel room really put a smile on my face.

 

A big thanks to River Island for arranging this beautiful experience!

Closet cleanse with Rebelle

sara-che-rebelle-alexander-wang-clutch-mansur-gavriel-bucket-bag-

There are bags lined up on the top of my closet, if you take a look what’s inside you will find some of my favourite items. Mostly shoes and bags, yes they’re still living in their boxes because I cherish them and some pieces that will never get tiered of.

However, after moving a few times these past years I have slowly but surely got into the thought process of pass a few of my loved items to someone who will maybe use them more frequently, that way they wont have to live in their boxes but instead make someone happy and add a little beauty to their closets. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Rebelle, a German based platform selling pre-loved vintage designer pieces that I felt this could be the right option for me. Here is why:

  • Lack of time: Rebelle will not only send a carrier to pick up the items and ship it to Germany but also take care of the mail correspondent with potential customers
  • Quality check: They have a team that ensures the customer the quality of the product and also helps the seller adjust the selling price according to the market value.

In other words, they will take care of the process for you and ensure you that the product will be sold at the market value, which means that as a buyer you can be sure that each piece that is being sold has gone through a quality control. Meaning, the items is not fake and is being sold at with a good quality. In fact, I wanted to sell my beloved Alexander Wang booties but they were sent back due to the solve not being in great shape, which also proves that they really put emphasis on quality.

The Mansur Gavriel bucket bag and I had a great run, its an amazing bad and although its the mini it could carry more than I could have imagined. A true trusting friend during trips all over Europe and USA, the quality is impeccable and a great everyday bag. Hard to find, yes but if you’re still yearning for one you can find my pre-loved here. You can also find a Alexander Wang clutch, a perfect everyday bag with plenty of space. I’ll let the pieces speak for themselves.

All I can say is, arrivederci old bags. Bye old bags. And bye old sunglasses (especially you). One woman’s cleanout is another woman’s treasure. Especially if the price is right. Don’t you agree?

 

 

In partnership with Rebelle

Sky Garden

For want of a more captivating way of opening my first substantial update since last week, bonjour from my home in Stockholm where I landed on the bed after a week of everything. In a matter of fact, it feels as if these past weeks has been pretty crazy, filled with work, projects, travels, moves, events and galas to shorter get-aways.

Lately, I have discovered something new about myself. Don’t you just love when that happens? Well, I do and that’s on of the perks of growing as a person. No, I’m not sharing something mind-blowing today, only that I’ve been in a transitional phase. I’ve come to like things I didn’t pay much attention to earlier, prioritise new sorts of characteristic traits in the people I surrond myself with and exremtly fond in surrounding myself in green areas. The latter is a bit rare, being a city girl and concrete lover. Yes, I love the city but even when I visit other metropolises I find myself scheduling in time to visit cool spaces between exploring culinary hotspots.

So when I was in London a few weeks ago on a press-trip to River Island, to preview their upcoming collections, I took the opportunity to visit Sky Garden. A garden, in a skyscraper in central London. Well, I didn’t know much what to expect other than what I had seen in pictures but I was blown away while setting my foot outside the elevator. The garden is amazing and the view could need a post of its own, but instead I urge you to visit Sky Garden if the opportunity is given.

On another note, something that doesn’t change is the devotion and understanding for staple pieces with a modern twist. Such as this blouse with wide arms, the construct and dimension adds to a piece that we’ve seen year after year but this time the difference stands out from previous years. And denim, dear denim, its safe to say that Vetements has made their imprint on selection of denim the retailers are offering – suddenly far more versatile than you could ever have imagined and something tells me that this is only the beginning.

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.
