So I just got back from a week long holiday in Sweden. It was perfect in so many ways, first I celebrated love at a friends wedding and later I hung out with my family for days. So much love in one week.
Yet, I can’t stop thinking about this summer’s upcoming holiday plans. But my thoughts goes a bit longer than just laying on the beach or what even one might be doing on vacation. I’m thinking of my holidays in colors, outfit, and photos. It might sound a bit crazy and I can’t really explain it neither, I guess I’m a very visual person who just happened to imagine things in beautiful pictures. Right now I’m drawn to the mood, colors and looks on the picture above, exactly how I image my holiday look.
My second holiday will be in south of Turkey to hang out with my boyfriend and his family and the third one in the south of France with my parents, a place that I can almost call my second home. I’m actually so lucky to be able to travel and have so many places to call home in Europe.
I’m really feeling summer vibes today, all of you who follows me on Instagram knows I’m currently in Sweden, and let me tell you it’s 20 degrees and sun! So naturally, I’m holiday daydreaming, especially when it comes to styling and dressing.
I’m always drawn to patterns and natural materials in summer, as most people I guess. I literally can’t wait to put my feets on a beach with sand beneath my toes, but while doing that I would love to look stylish as well. Above you can find my wishlist for my summer adventures. Summer come quickly!

This new Year’s Eve/weekend will go to history in many ways, it was so perfect and it’s really how I imagine a New Years Eve to be. First of all, it wasn’t spend in London (No offense London but I really do prefer an intimate NYE spend in a small town like we did this time).
We celebrated in the lovely little town in Dorset county called Bridport, where we rented an Air BnB with friends and spend NYE in an other friends restaurant opened up just for an intimate dinner among friends. It was the perfect evening who could just as well been taken out of a movie. At midnight we went to the local square to watch the whole town dressed out (not up, but out!?) in the craziest costumes. A local tradition I’ve been told. After that, we did a quick pitch stop at a bar to dance to the weirdest and loudest music with an interesting mix of people, to say the least, and then back to the restaurant continue the feast. One thing I found so charming with small towns is the fact that everything is in walking distance, it took no more than a few minutes to walk in between the places and I love that. Well this was the actual NYE but since we did spend two nights there you can imagine how many other things we manage to fit in, it really prolonged the New Years celebration to an entire weekend!
When it comes to the outfit I decided to go for something glamours and dressed down in the same way. It’s always a safe card when you go to a gathering where you don’t know how other people will dress. I ended up wearing skinny jeans layered with a slipdress to have the best of two worlds. My glittery socks, sparkling earrings and red lips really added that extra glam to the look!
Thank you everyone involved in this New Year’s (and Ulgen for snapping those photos!) It was the best!
Happy new years to you all!

T-shirt in different colors and shape can change any trouser into different looks
Gold earring takes no place in the luggage but makes a big difference when styling your outfit
I’m not in any way calling myself a master of packing, there is way more people who master that art better than me, but practice makes perfect. I have traveled with only hand luggage at least 4 times a year for the past 4 years, so I think I still have a few things I can add to this subject.
Right now I’m about to board the plane for a Christmas holiday in Sweden with my family, but before I thought I would share two of my tips for packing light.
1. Bring a lot of tops. A T-shirt or a top can change the look of one pair of trousers, depending on the color, the fit, the print etc. The good thing with t-shirt is that they take next to no space in the luggage, so you can do the math. Different T-shirt equals many looks.
2. Earrings. A pair of gold earrings can make the simplest outfit look expensive and chic. The same thing here, they take hardly any place in the luggage but make a big different when creating an outfit.
Now time for boarding, see you in Sweden!
