The past weeks I have almost been hoarding white shirts, preferably with wide sleeves. A white shirt is classic staple, and what I love about the new silhuettes is the new spin its given.
During Fashion Month we could see more new spins on a classic shirt, they where deconstructed and presented in new way which I felt was very exciting. So excited so I decided to layer up two shirt and create a fashion-forward-yet-somewhat-manrepelling-look. Score!
I like the contrast of the a white shirt with its wide sleeves under the striped one who’s worn almost lite a top, tied around my waist. You can also wear a t-shirt as a base instead of a shirt, perfect when the weather allows bare arm. That being said, its always fun to let your imagination play its roll when getting dressed – don’t you think? The truth is, it don’t necessarily have to be that hard.

No collection is complete without an amazing pair of statement sunglasses. Everyone should have a pair of statement shades to bring out when they’re feeling bold. Once in a while it’s fun to rock an eye-catching, fashion forward look and a great pair if statement shades can totally transform an outfit from drab to fab in an second.
From over-the-top shapes to colorful reflective lenses, bold sunglasses will be a fashion favourite this year. Last season when I spotted Stella McCartney’s kitty sunglasses and felt very drawn to them – a timeless design upgraded with a modern and playful twist. Fast-forward to a couple of weeks ago when I spotted their SS16 collection I knew these soft pink cat-eye sunglasses with mirrored lenses where the ones.
These spec’s has capsuled three important trend elements that makes them the perfect statement shades.
This shape is not only on trend this season but also AW16. You can’t go wrong with a pair of cateye sunglasses. They are the perfect way of adding depth and drama to a simple outfit, i.e. statement!
2. Mirrored Lense
Mirrored lenses made a strong comeback a few years ago when everybody where wearing blue or green mirrored RayBan’s, remember? This season, they’re making a stronger comeback in various designs and colors. Exiting right? One of the person of mirrored lenses? No one can actually see where you are looking. Not bad, right?
3. Colorful Shades
This season is all about colours, give your old sunglasses a break and try something new and different. A pair of red sunglasses or leopard printed would have been my second and third choice if it wasn’t for these beautiful soft pink-nudeish shade.
Whats not to love about style statement that’s both functional and cool as hell?

With spring just around the corner it felt more than right to add a new piece to my bag collection. When choosing a new bag I usually think about a few thing before I make my move – after all, I want it to ba a piece that adds something different to the collection yet can grow old with.
How is the bag actually designer, from the quality of the material to the actual design. Is it timeless or is this just a piece thats currently trending but will fade sooner or later.
Meaning, do I already have something similar. What could the piece add to a look and what sort of flavour does it add. Does it make a look more sportier, casual, chicer and so on? And lastly, color! If you’re just starting with putting together a bag collection, starting with a black bag is a greta idea but you don’t want to have just a collection of black bags, right?
I don’t pick up a bag just because its trending, it needs to have done a deeper impact. Also, I need to see that its going to be a piece that will still add that touch for upcoming seasons.
Therefore, for spring I decided to finally get my hands on a beautiful 3.1 Philip Lim Mini Satchel, in a soft eggshell tone. It has a hint of soft pink in with goes perfectly with all things spring and current trends. Also, upcoming trends. The design itself is amazing, material is beautiful and truth is that I started lusting over this piece when I used to live in the U.S. – e.i. many years ago!
Are you guys thinking about getting a new piece for spring? Which one? And what are your thoughts when pining up a new piece?

Have you ever looked in the mirror and not recognised who person looking back is? It’s like one has been used to seeing something (or someone) that has changed over time and all of sudden, you wake up to the realisation that that old you is gone.
That’s what I love about fashion, and blogging about it. Not only does one have an actual archive on previous style and looks, but can also go back to and read what what going on a deeper level. A few days ago I stumbled upon some old photos that was hidden in a old phone, my hair was longer and my style resembled a person I once knew. She wasn’t unfamiliar, just that time has taken its turn together with the laws of evolution. I looked up in the mirror, as for a second I didn’t really recognise how that old me used to think and resonate about this life.
However, I don’t believe a person can be only one thing – I know for a fact that I one with many facets, each facet has its need to be discovered and explored. Blogging enables me to present them, not only for you but mostly for myself which helps me to get in touch with my various facets.
This look is a defenition of just that, a masculine yet corkier side of me thats being balanced out with elements of what you might be used to see me in. Maybe I’m channeling my inner tomboy yet in more mature version, than when I used to look like as a kid. Although its a maturer version, its still brings out a innocent playfulness. That playfulness is a big part of my being, whether its in clothes or other areas in life – it gives me joy, and adds joy to all those aspects I apply it to which makes me think how beautiful and enjoyable life is when we live our truth.
That being said, I hope you’re all off to a beautiful start on this weekend and allow yourself to have some good old fun. As always, I love reading your thoughts and feedback, make sure to write your thought and add some joy back to me.

Tuesday can be a drag, thats why I’m giving you a chance to frown upside down with some colors.
Speaking of colors, colorblocking is one of the trends to count on this season as you can see – I have already given it a kickstart. And by kickstart I mean, since its too cold in Stockholm and still have to put on our coats and jackets again our give-me-spring-now-will it feels like a great compromise to wear a colorblocked coat.
And what a great compromise, I must admit that wearing more colors has been a like an non-medical anti-depressing pill. I’m sure there’s some study out on the subject, but if I feel good and happy about my look – then I’m good. Not only does the colors add some extra joy to my mood but also to others (according to some nice people who’ve given me complements – e.i. my test group).
For those of you who are still juggling the post-winter depression, I suggest you jump on the bandwagon and join the part – the block party that is!. Everybody is invited!
