I have a giant, a great, a super mega crush on outerwear. If you have been reading /following me for a while you know how devoted my love for handbags and shoes are, outerwear would be the third runner up.

As the temperature is dropping in a fast pace I’m doing my best to make use of those “lighter” pieces that I wont be able to use in while. One of the perks of fall is to layer, and have fun with different dimensions.

That’s one of the reasons why I love this vest; it adds such a nice silhouette to this look. Another thing that I really like about it this look is how the shirt is longer in the back – almost like its flirting in the back. Not only does that add a nice contrast to the whole attire, but also gives the illusion of looking longer.

Since I consider myself being vertically challenged I love finding tricks to fool the eye. Culottes are a great way to add a little length; throw in a pair of nude heels extenuates the legs too.

Are Fashion Blogs Dying out?

sara-cue-mlm-the-label-celine-sunglasses-h&m-dress-over-the-knee-boots

As the internet and social media keeps progressing, the business of fashion blogs do too. Some choose to go wider by adding other elements to their blog, such as workout or travel while arguing that fashion is too narrow. Others, argue that fashion blogs are counting its days and will soon be an end of an area.

Although I have discussed the subject several times There have been many occasions where I’ve been discussing the subject with bloggers and people in the industry, it’s all speculations but it can be wise to know what sense of direction you have for yourself.

On one point I understand that some argue that the era of fashion bloggers are coming to its end, but could it actually be that some bloggers who’ve reached certain level have lost their personal touch? Truth be told, the Swedish blogging scene differs a lot from the rest of the world, as the rest of the world has progressed to create content the majority of Swedish bloggers are still using it as personal diary. Does it get confusing? Yes, because you’re looking at beautiful pictures with a text that has nothing to do with the pictures.

On a personal note, after reading blogs for many years ahead before I started my own I found it always interesting to read what the person was thinking while putting together a look. A personal note that makes one get a insight to why the look is put together the way it is – instead of who you had coffee with (cause frankly, who cares?)

Therefore, I find myself reading blogs where the person has an opinion and a voice. It doesn’t have to be all serious, it can be humours (I love Leandra Medin for instance and have a great amount of respect for her work) but since we’re being fed with high quality images on various platforms I find it more interesting reading blog where you can sense the persona.

Fashion blogs are not coming to an end, however challenged to stand out in masses (and mediums) – and what makes one stand out is to be who you are and keep things real. Some argue that they want their blogs to be inspiring and positive but does that mean one cant voice a subject that is heavier than the new shoes you recently purchased? Speaking of such, I strongly recommend you to read my friend Anouk’s piece about Anti-Fashion. After have shared stories about my breakup previous this year, my insecurities and view on business of fashion blogging I have received comments about being brave. Its very flattering, but I don’t consider it being brave. Maybe its because I promised myself to honest and real with you here – and by doing so I believe you can always hold me countble whether I’m sharing something positive or if I’m going through a hard patch.

Conclusion? Fashion blogs are not going anywhere but in order to e be influencer you cant just be a pretty face. You have to stand for something, in the end personality wins (I’m sure Iris Apfel agrees with me, I suggest you watch her document if you have any doubts). Both on the internet and in the real world, so just relax and have fun. If you’re in this to share then share and don’t hold back, if you’re afraid of judgment then its maybe because you’re passing judgement on others?

The Knit Effect

I’m not a winter person, in fact I find myself reconsidering leaving my apartment ofter during winter. Maybe its my Persian genes protesting against the Swedish climate, but over the years I’ve picked up on a few tricks to handle it better.

That’s why you see me ofter wearing turtlenecks when fall arrives, something about keeping the upper body warm does the trick. Due to many conversations and reading articles about fashion and the pace we consume clothes I’ve decided to invest in pieces that are sustainable. Hence, quality and finding a cut that had a timeless feeling with a modern piece. Since I love mixing elements, masculine with feminine, boxy with something sleek I instantly found this sweater perfect.

If you are following me on Instagram, you might remember a post I did not long ago showing a Celiné box. Well et voila! Here you have them, Caty sunglasses in full on kitty swing. The shape is wonderful and I love the Havana colour of Celine’s sunnies, the brown shade is a nice and smooth contrast to my dark hair. Black can get to much – especially when wearing a full on black look as this one.

When I first spotted this look, its was love at first sight. However, the set sold out right away and to be honest, I wasn’t surprised. So there I was, hoping to maybe stumble upon something similar when my stumbled upon this kit while browsing in my favourite Swedish high-street brand’s store.

Currently obsessed with all things grey, particularly of the boyish and minimalistic kind. The structure of this catch is exactly that and wearable to any occasion, its subtle yet effective withs its sleek design. Classic, trans-seasonal and wholly versatile, grey is fast becoming a go-to when I am keen to work beyond my usual all-black and white uniform.

Unapologetically oversized knitted layers combined with a faux sleeve tied around the skirt, shoes that are almost a loafer but more of a sneakers due to being very comfortable, the usual suspect of bag topped off with classic piece around the wrist.

I love when visiting a café means a complete escape, taking you somewhere thats isn’t too far away from home. With everything thats going on its nice to take a break from life, online as well as offline.

That’s what it really feels like when you step into Tous Les Jour in Stockholm, which is a labor of love with its approach to great food, coffee and interior. Being the coffee enthusiast that I am, its was delightful to find this spot.

Tous Les Jour became instantly a favourite hang out, hide out. or hanging out with friends or meet new ones. Even for business meetings just because the variety of food never fails for the personal taste of every one.

Since we’re highlighting the current favourites, these boots are worth mentioning too. Designed by the Japanese label Toga Pulla, classic yet very edgy with the metal details and fine leather. Not only are they gorgeous but also very comfortable.
