Me and Joanna (founder of J.WLRY Sthlm) meet a couple of years ago in Paris, both Swedes in a big city where anything was possible but also where there were many bumps on the road. One thing we always shared even in hard times was our love for fashion and design, so it makes me proud as a friend to see her creating something really beautiful that I constantly carry around my finger. Instead of me writing things about the ring I thought I would share a few words from the designer herself below.
ME: Hi Joanna, Are you ready for three quick questions? What are you wearing right now?
JOANNA: Hi, sure go ahead! I am wearing my lovely knitted crop trousers from COS. Together with a top from Malene Birger and a sweater from Wood Wood. My high heels from Rodebjer I am just dreaming of wearing, the pregnancy only lets me have my New Balance sneakers.
ME: What are you doing today?
JOANNA: I am organizing the rest of the week’s jewelry making and planning a client meeting, and kind of always sketching on some new exciting ideas while listening to music…
ME: I absolutely love the ring Lights Off from your collection, can you tell me more about where you get the inspiration from when creating your jewelry?
JOANNA: I’m so happy to hear that! My inspiration source comes mostly from minimalism and Art Deco objects and the artist Hervé Van Der Straeten that I got familiar with when I studied fashion in Paris. I can’t get enough of his work.
Thank you Joanna and good luck with J.WLRY Sthlm and the soon to be here baby!

Ok, so there are few things and bringing to both my holiday in Turkey and South of France.
THE STRAW HAT
It’s stylish and it protects both you and your hair from the sun, a must in warmer climates.
I’m a gold jewelry kinda girl, and in the summer I want them bigger and chunkier. The more the merrier.
TANNED LEATHER SANDALS
Black in all its glory, nothing beats a tanned foot in a brown leather sandal. For me, it just adds to that natural holiday vibe I’m always aiming for. Plus it goes well with your natural skin color.
A STRAW BAG
A straw bag is easy to carry all your beach essentials in and chic enough to bring on your dinner after the beach. It’s basically the only bag you need for your holiday, in different sizes, shapes, and colors obviously.
What do you bring on your holiday?
A birthday is a good day to treat your self with something. I know the idea is that you get spoiled by family and friends, but let’s be honest who knows best what you want but yourself?
I happened to spend my birthday in Paris when I was there a few weeks ago for work, and it just so happens that the Acne Studios store was on sale and just around the corner from the Acne showroom where I was working. My two managers insisted that I went there to just ten minutes before our appointment to see if I could find myself something, so this might be one of my quickest buys ever.
I must admit I have been dreaming about those earrings since they came out so even if the actual buying was quick it wasn’t very impulsive, and it was my birthday after all. They are so versatile that they basically look good with anything, especially now in summer with a bit of tan, yay!
Unfortunately, they seem to be sold out everywhere, but here is a similar pair.
If you have been following me for a while you might have noticed my “ball-earrings-addiction”. I counted them the other day and I realized I have 7 pairs (!!) of earrings with some kind of ball dangling. I have no idea if this is normal, but Hey, it makes me happy.
So you can imagine my joy when I found these purple metallic ones at Topshop for ten pounds? Winner winner chicken dinner. Tomorrow at this time I will be on a plane to Sweden, first for a friends wedding and then for some family time, can’t wait! Follow my Instastories to get a view of the Swedish country side!
