Beach dreaming

Sandals from Sam Edelman, beach towel from Toteme and silk bag from The Row, perfect beach friends.

I'm a person who thinks about everything in the very detail. Like a beach towel, I become a bit obsessed with finding the right one for a perfect beach look. The Toteme one is definitely high up on the list, especially paired with The Row silk bag and the sandals from Sam Edelman above. Now all I need is a beach.

Two things I wish to carry this summer

Ark bamboo bag from Cult Gaia and Gucci hair slide all from Net-a-Porter.

I blame it on Net-a-Porter. Every time I scroll through their site I find things I then think I can't live without ( I obviously can live without them but you get the idea).

First of all the Ark bamboo bag from Cult Gaia, I thought I would get tired of it since everyone seems to own one, but no, I just make me want one more apparently.

The Gucci hair slide, what can I say, imagine sunkissed salty holiday hair with this little beauty on top. Perfection.

A girl can dream no?

strawbags and the new store arket

My holiday outfit look that I wore in South of France. Strawbag from the local market, beige silk camisole from the new store Arket, Levis 501 vintage shorts, brown leather sandals from H&M and sunglasses from Alexander McQueen.

Two things, I love right now. The new store Arket where I got my silk camisole from (HERE) and second, my local market found, the straw bag I got in South of France. The two pieces together are a match made in heaven. Since summer is officially over I will wear the straw bag with my trench coat just because I can and because I love clatching seasonal items. The silk camisole will be worn as a layer under a blazer tucket in a pair of denim. Yes, I am ready for the autumn season now!

about coming home and the changes ahead

I guess I'm not alone in my coming home from holiday feeling weird, slightly disorientated and lost. I'm so eager to back into routines ( I love routines) but end up mostly just staring at the wall not knowing where to start (hence the absent here on the blog ). This summer has been great in so many ways, I traveled a lot (Turkey, Sweden, Paris, Wales, and South of France ) which also led to a lot of thinking. Mostly about me as a person, my goals and my soul search in a way. It opened my eyes and creativity ( I guess that's was travel do!?) and my mind feels a bit clearer.

For me my new years start now, I have so many plans ahead. First I'm planning a new shoot with Noordinarysuit (and more plans with the company in general), I'm taking silversmithing jewelry classes ( a dream I had forever), expect some fun collaborations on the blog and many more blog plans ahead (Please let me know if you wish for anything specific !), I'm expanding my personal styling business (book me HERE), and last but not least I'm still working for my beloved Acne Studios. Autumn 2017 let's do this!!

Enough talking and let me share some snaps from South of France.

Green Man festival in Wales and Internet Detox

So one week ago I came back from the Green Man festival that takes place in national Park Brecon Beacons in Wales. Do I have to say that the surroundings were incredible? The main stage had a beautiful view of mountains creating this amazing backdrop when you listen to the bands. But there was rain, a lot of rain to be honest. Luckily I was prepared, I managed to get myself a rain coat and a pair of wellies the last minute before leaving. Thank god for that. The downside is that I really don't have any interesting outfit post to show since I wore raincoat and wellies the entire weekend, but I have other amazing photos to share.

This is where I got my coffee from every morning, I really care about a good cup of coffee and this place delivered my morning macchiato.

Tired/happy me waking up.

The festival really had good food trucks in all sorts of styles and cuisine, and some of them really work with the home styling as well, I mean take a look this tea room bus!!

I can promise you I didn't bring the rain. The moment I bought this raincoat I told my boyfriend that I'm gonna get so many comments from happy unsober people at the festival, and I sure did. "Can you make it stop now?" "Why did you bring it?" to only mention a few, all of them said with a smile on their face!

Old castle we discovered on our hike in Wales.

One morning we adventured outside the festival to discover the surroundings a bit, turns out decision well made when we found the ruins of this old castle. Majestic and simply beautiful.

That was that for Green Man, and the internet detox I mentioned in the title? Well, after coming home from the festival we didn't have internet for one week, long story, less blogging updates for me but more reading and organizing at home. Not so bad after all, sometimes it's good to go offline. More about that another time.

XOXO

Rodebjer and Noordinarysuit – My scandinavian holiday look

Holiday outfit post from a roof top in Turkey. Wearing my printed wide leg trousers from Swedish brand Rodebjer and my top from Swedish brand Minimarket, a total scandi look from a Scandinavian Fashion blogger.

Hi, from the roof top in Turkey again, the pictures were taken on one of out last nights in paradise. In summer and warmer climate, it's easy to just wear dresses all the time so we  (read me) tend to forget about all the amazing summer trousers out there. Especially if you have a kick-ass top to go with like the one I'm wearing from Noordinarysuit.

I think that trousers and a top give you a completely different look compared to a dress, it gives you a more tomboy look that I actually prefer most of the times. I got those ones from the Swedish brand Rodebjer, can't help myself I love Scandinavian brands, a true Swede I guess...

I just love how the trousers are cut and open up in the front, it makes the trousers floaty when you walk, so beautiful. Now I need to start thinking what to wear when heading to Green Man festival on Friday!

The top is so versatile and looks great styled with a tee or shirt underneath, check out how you can style it on the link below.

Beach dress from Monki and a beautiful Turkish landscape

Wearing my red and white stripy oversized dress from Swedish brand Monki in the a beautiful Turkish landscape.

I still feel after a few weeks back in the city that my mind can't really pick up on the city paste that I normally was used to. Imagine how much holiday actually does for you? I'm always quite effective but many times during the day I find myself daydreaming away which is not at all like me. It's slightly frustrating and nice at the same time. Weird to say the least.

So I will continue feeding you with holiday pictures, just because I can ( The beauty of being your own publisher) and simply because I have so much more to share.

Wearing my red and white stripy oversized dress from Swedish brand Monki in the a beautiful Turkish landscape.

I wore this dress from Swedish brand Monki every day when going to the beach. It's made from 100 % cotton (Love!) so very breathable in 35 degrees and oversized so not too tight in the waist, also a plus in a hot climate. It's stripy aswell, I always loved stripes on holidays for some reason and I guess I'm not the only one. Can we also talk about the backdrop?? How beautiful is the Turkish landscape on the coast side, like a postcard!

If you are interested in the dress you can get it HERE

My holiday look from Next – A yellow dress and a straw bag

Wearing my mustard yellow dress with an open back and my straw bag, both from next. Photos taken on a roof top in South of Turkey.

When Next asked me to pick out an outfit for my summer holiday, it didn't take me long to make a choice. The yellow dress pops out like no other color during summer and the fact that it is open on the back makes it perfect for an evening out or dinner. Those photos were actually taken just before heading to a diner, I kinda wish I always had a beautiful roof top like this one to snap some photos on.

For me the straw bag is just a must on your holiday, I brought mine to the beach, to dinner and to any other adventure we might have done. The natural material just makes it perfect on holiday when spending a lot of time in nature, plus it matches the dress quite well.

I always thought I couldn't wear colors like this one due to my light skin tone, but let that be the lesson of the day, to just try things and don't listen to rules! One of my favorite things with summer is when you just put a lipstick on a sunkissed skin and no other makeup is needed. Goals.

Missing Turkey a lot when seeing those pictures, luckily I have South of France coming up in a month! Lucky lucky me.

By the pool side and the importance of slowing down.

leg (1 of 1)-43

So I'm back home in London after one amazing week in Turkey. This was by far one of my best visit there, and I really think it was mainly cause I felt relaxed. I often go on holiday thinking it will calm me down not realizing that you have to be open and ready for the relaxation as well. Anyway, this time I was and most of the days we hang by the sea, eat good food (I LOVE Turkish food and we ate fresh fish, feta cheese, olives, vegetables and fruit that have never taste sweeter) talked, laughed and simply just enjoyed life.

Hanging by the pool in South of Turkey in my yellow swim suit from Topshop, vintage Levis 501 shorts and panama hat. Perfect pool outfit for a warm day.

It really good for someone like me to take a break, I am a very intense person and can really easily get caught up in things and forget how to pause and reflect. When you live in a big city like London it's easy to get sucked into the stress that comes with the city. Since I had some this time this holiday to think about things, there is one thing I want to change when being home and that is my eating habits or let's say my snacking habits. During the time in Turkey, I ate quite healthy and it made me realize how much it does for you and your well-being. In London, I tend to eat basically anything that will stop my hunger and worst of all; I snack every day something sugary. The other thing I want to do is to have a proper breakfast, the one when you sit down (I eat it standing up on the go, so bad I know!) have your juice, boiled egg, and bread, in peace. So a very good holiday that made me realize things!

I have much more photos to share from Turkey, so just give me time to edit them and I will share them all here. This one's here are from the pool just next to the sea, I love the sea but I enjoy a pool visit as well. How amazing is my swimsuit in orange, I wore it all the time, and of course my good all Levi's 501 shorts. They never fail me, they are about 7 years old and still going strong.

Have a lovely Tuesday and most important, don't forget to slow down!

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without

Ok, so there are few things and bringing to both my holiday in Turkey and South of France.

THE STRAW HAT

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The strawhat, this one is from a market in south of France.

It's stylish and it protects both you and your hair from the sun, a must in warmer climates.

GOLD JEWELRY'S

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. Gold jewelry is a must on your summer holidays.

I'm a gold jewelry kinda girl, and in the summer I want them bigger and chunkier. The more the merrier.

TANNED LEATHER SANDALS

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The tanned brown 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

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The straw bag to bring to the beach and dinner.

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?
