Hands up everyone who feels like they have too many clothes but nothing to wear? Well, you are not alone if you raised your hand.
A couple of days ago I got asked by the app Share Style, where I work as one of their many freelancing personal stylists, to share my five best tips in how to do a wardrobe detox. A wardrobe detox is simply a detox but for your clothes and wardrobe. It’s a way to edit out what you don’t need and add pieces you are missing and simply clean and organize so you can easily get dressed in the morning. I’m sharing my first of five tips here, to read them all head over to Share Style blog.
HIDE THE CLOTHES YOU AREN’T SURE ABOUT FOR A FEW MONTHS.
This may sound ridiculous — why would you hide your clothes when you’re already struggling to find something to wear? — but it can really help. If you have some pieces in your wardrobe that you’re not sure about but haven’t got rid of them just in case you might wear them on some rare occasion, then fold them up and put them in a bag for six months. If you haven’t missed them or can hardly remember what’s in that bag, then you know that you can do without them. So get rid. Leaving them as an unreliable outfit option is only adding extra minutes to your daily dressing woes.
And if you still after reading the five tip needs an extra help, don’t hesitate to book an appointment with me at Share Style.
I dawns on me a lot of the time when styling how keeping it simple really makes it perfect, everytime. I know, I know I’m Scandinavian and we are really known for it and blah blah blah, but the truth it that we always try to overdo things and had we just removed one or two things the result would have been different and better.
The other day I styled my white t-shirt with a bandana and matched the bandana with the embroidered cherry. I turned out pretty well, I must say, simple and not overdone. Loving bandanas and cherry’s on clothes for that matter. Check my best buys of them both of them below. I’m quite tempted to get the cherry tee from Ganni with a white bandana, Yay or Nay??
I really have a thing for loafers lately. Fist of all they are comfortable and at the moment I have a bit of a problem with aching feets so I chose comfort over; looking tall in heels.
When it comes to styling its super east to style them as well. Personally, I prefer to go the old school way and wear them with a pair of denim, but you can easily pair them either a dress, a skirt or a pair of culottes. Littery everything, so a good investment in your shoe wardrobe I must say. The one above I got from Topshop and I love that they are a bit more fun than the classic black ones, a bit of metallic pink never did anyone any harm right?
But I’m ready for a new pair, but this time I’m dreaming of a Gucci loafers, preferably a pair of slides ones…
Help me, which one below do you like the best? And can you guess my favorite?
Isn’t it the nicest thing when you find a good everyday look? Well, this is my current one, classic and very casual. When I don’t know what to wear and I’m in a rush, this is my safe card.
I love the mom jeans from Mango simply because they are the perfect fit and it’s made of proper denim, not the stretchy ones you normally find on the high street. The knit from Uniqlo is just a good basic for a very good price point and it’s a blend of cotton and cashmere, so very soft as you can imagine. My cowboy boots from Topshop are perfect for when you running in town, and they look pretty kick ass too!
And Oh, My metal pot from H&M Home, isn’t it gorgeous?

Fashion doesn’t have to be expensive, these are my favorites on the high-street right now!

Let me start by telling a story before I talk about this brand. Twelve years ago I passed one year in London working as an Aupair for a family, I spent all my free time with my dear friend Zuzana who also she worked as an Aupair. We were close like sister that year and since she lived more central I ended spending every weekend at the family she worked for so I also got to know them quite well.
Just before this last Christmas I was looking for gifts in Liberty for some friends and I picked up and bought this Himalayan bath salt, the package was so nice and I just loved everything it stood for and of course the actual product in itself ( who doesn’t like natural products that makes your skin smooth and relaxed? ). A couple of months passed when I caught up with my friend Zuzana, who I hadn’t seen for a very long time. We talked about our life today, and our life twelve years ago, she mentioned that the family she used to work for had started this beauty brand and showed me a picture of their products. You might guess that it was exactly that brand I bought a couple of months back, maybe a coincidence but I like to believe that it was meant to be. I think their product have something spiritual in them that made me choose them from all the couple of hundred other products in the store.
Naturally, me and Zuzana saw this as a sign and went to visit Mauli Rituals lovely founders Anita and Bittu a few weeks ago and they are just as warm and welcoming they were twelve years ago. I love when you know something more about a brand, who the founders are, what they stand for and what inspired them to start this wellbeing beauty brand. A true inspiration!
I really speak from the heart when I say that this brand has something extra, it smells like heaven and contains so many good ingredients, and most important it makes you feel so good! The serum on the picture above made my skin softer than ever felt in my adult years, and that is quite a good achievement I must say.
When Londonswedes.com asked me to be part of their “Home at” series, where they interview various Swedes in London and photograph them in their home, I couldn’t say no. In the interview I talk about my jobs in fashion, what I would do if I didn’t work in fashion, the best things about London and many many more things you guys didn’t know about me.
Londonswedes is such a great community for us Swedes, you can find information on their site about anything from job offers, how Brexit affects us, apartments for rent and where you can find the best cinnamon bun in town ( Yes we swedes care about our cinnamon buns). Sometimes being a foreigner can be hard as you are used to your own countries rules, regulations and culture and it can be tricky to go about certain things, so it’s so good to have those kinds of sites!
A few days ago I was styling the Spring/Summer collection for No Ordinary Suit, and here is a little teaser of what will be coming up on the shop soon. I can’t really explain how happy it makes me to see your vision become realized, it’s something magic when you see a result of a great teamwork. And it sure helps that Paddy, our photographer also is a master of filming and editing videos. This clip makes me want spring now!
And let’s talk about the collection! I love it all, I already put my hand on one piece already. Can you guess which one?
I know that my blog really hasn’t bloomed lately, but recently so many things have been happening work wise that my blog kind of has been caught in between. To sum it up there has been shoot prepping, interviews, new projects who needs time and in between that my blog. All fun stuff so I’m not complaining though!
Anyway, when browsing online for a shoot I did find some goodies I wanted to tip about.
