Wardrobe findings – The checked blazer

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Isn’t it great when you find pieces in you forgot about in your own wardrobe? This happened to me last time I visited my parents in Sweden since I keep some clothes there (Sorry mom! I will try to clean it out soon) and I ended up rediscovering this at least seven-year-old blazer from H&M.

I feel like I should spend some time in the British countryside and ride horses when I wear this jacket, so British!

The best things with blazers are that you can wear them casually on the shoulders as well.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Have a feeling I’m gonna have a lot of wear out of this one, well done me for saving it!

Since the blazer above is an old from H&M I gathered my favorite checked jackets in stores right now. Klick on the photos below to reach the shops.

Ganni forever/ fever and my thoughts on Scandinvian Fashion

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Sometimes I almost feel slightly embarrassed when someone asks me about my favorite brands, only due to the fact that most of them are Scandinavian. Since I am Scandinavian I sometimes ask myself ” am I not broadening my horizon enough?” But trust me in a city like London you get exposed to a lot of different styles so that really can’t be the case. I see other brands and designer and as much as I can appreciate them, it’s not what I choose to put in my basket. Ok maybe I’m exaggeration a little bit, my closet doesn’t only contain Scandinavian brand but you get the point, I love Scandinavian fashion so shoot me now? Now that I got that off my chest, le’ts talk about the look above.

Danish brand Ganni is one of my favorite brands, so playful and colorful but yet som minimalistic and chic. In this photo, I’m doing a full Ganni look. Perfect to pair with a pair of sneakers for an even more casual touch.

City shoot in black and white, styled by me

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to work with the very talented photographer Valerio Lettieri and the very beautiful model Andressa Claas, where I styled the shoot. The result turned out pretty good, and I went from beeing slightly disappointed that the shoot was in black/white ( From a styling perspective, sometimes you want to show off those colors) to now just loving the black/white theme. Just beautiful.

My ultimate styling tip – Opposites attract

I know that I might have mentioned this a few times before, but it can never be said too many times. My ultimate styling tip when it comes to dressing is contrast. If you have, like on the picture above, a casual sweat shirt then pair it with a pair of rhinestone earrings. It’s all about balancing things out and remember: opposites attract! That’s all I had to say for today, I’m preparing a big shoot for Noordinarysuit on Sunday so gotta go back to work now.

Levi’s Redone – My new old favorite jeans

Buying a pair of jeans that has holes in but still cost as much (if not more) as a pair of high-end brand jeans, well that is something my dad would never understand. I admit, it is a bit crazy when you think about it, but you are also buying a piece that is truly unique and carries history in a way. And the best thing is that once you find a pair that truly sits well, you kind of can’t settle for less when it comes to jeans.

My levis Redone has the perfect light wash, the perfect high waist and just enough amount of holes!

My five top tips in how to wardrobe detox – Featured on Share Style

pile

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.

  1. 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.

Welcome to my home – Interview at Londonswedes.com

londonswe

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!

Thank you Londonswedes for having me!
