I don't know if we dreaded this or longed for it but yellow is back in our lives. I'm not gonna lie I was kind of sceptic but then I found this yellow skirt at Cos and saw one of my girlcrushes Hanna MW sporting it so I gave it a spin.
When creating this outfit (it took a while) I started by stealing my best friends husbands Knicks shirt. Then I was very etager to wear my new Rodarte x Stories sandals and thought sequins wasn't the way to go. That was exactly why I decided to try them on (you know it feels wrong then it's probably right). And voilá!
The first stop on my epic vacay tour - That officially started today is Oslo! And why this tour is epic is because I am doing my best not to read any emails and will try to stay away from Wifi-zones as much as possible. The goal is to actually be rested when coming back to Stockholm...
So while we're all getting used to having fashion rebell Vetements-founder Demna Gvasalia at head of Balenciaga, he's doing his thing over there. So you guys know what happens on the catwalk when Vetements is showing. DHL- tshirts, plastic robes and track suits all in a package that we call Ready-to-wear and happily spend more or less our entire pay checks on a t shirt or on a pair of jeans.
So in a true Gvasalia spirit this Balenciaga bag feels so normal, that's his thing, "NORMAL". Yet so expensive and so cool!

So the best dresses right now are the slip dresses. But I don't feel really comfy wearing just the slip dress, it feels kind of slippery and a bit naked. But thanks to denim cut-offs and a cropped tee that is not a problem. Some day soon I might dare to wear it as it is, all slippery and naked, but for now I'm safe wearing it on top of an outfit.
Dress from Weekday. Yankees tee. Levi's shorts. H&M shoes. Zadig et Voltaire bag.
So vacay is coming up… Any time now! I still haven't decided where to go or what to do. Or no scratch that, I know exactly what to do, I'm gonna do absolutely nothing. But I don't know where I'm gonna do nothing.
Either way my summer dress-code is always loose dresses, lots of linen, scarves and flats. Yeah flats are the real deal during summer. And this summer the loose dresses are spelled shirt-dresses!
Midsummer is like Christmas up here in Sweden, sometimes the temperature is literally the same as in December. Everybody is outside, dressing up in cliché summer dresses, flowers in our hair - basically your Dolce&Gabbana parade but the Swedish way. And we love it.
So happy the longest day of the year!
On top of my priority list right is to oooz Kate Moss style by fall, at latest. I feel like that is on our lists pretty often and off course who wouldn't want to be as cool-I-don't-care-cool...? Latest print on or list is leopard by the way, I you want to be extra trendy for fall make sure to buy a leo-coat. Latest pattern-print-mix on our lists is leo+tiny polkadots. I am so definitely going for that!

Hottest right now is to walk around like you're in your lingeris - Or your night gown. So technically you can sleep and work in the same outfit. And I promise nobody will know the difference. Or no let me rephrase that. If you have a "normal" job people are gonna stare, but then again if you read this blog they probably already do. Right? If you have a job filled with fashion-peeps, nobody will know the difference.
Right now this trend is apparently on sale, at least this silky number at Mango. But according to my antennas you can catch this silk dress on sale and wear for a long time. The lingeris trend is not going anywhere.
So since I live in Scandi you have to count some rain when planning your summer wardrobe. We all know I love playing with contrasts while getting dressed and with a little summer rain I get to do that. Don't get me wrong I am not encouraing the rain but in-between-season weather is honestly the - Fashion wise. So the best way to wear a shirt dress while the Scandi-summer is at its worst is to pair it with a hooded coat.
And btw - Best color combo right now. Pink & Burgundy!
A must-have for summer is definitely everything straws. It is the perfect contrast, wearing a straw bag while big-city-lifeing it. And regarding the bathing suit even I might be convinced that it is actually a good idea, even though your tan will suffer. Either way it is the perfect piece to wear as a top matching it with your favorite denim...
Kitten heels. Culottes. Fringes. And rope!
