DENIM. Do you know what I love more than a piece of good denim? Two pieces of good denim – hello canadian tuxedo! Found these jeans a couple of days ago when a massive rainstorm forced me to seek shelter at Zara for an hour. After browsing around for a while I stumbled upon what might just be the perfect jeans – cropped at the ankle? check, nice worn in feel? check, ripped above knee? check, and most importantly, comfortable? double check! All in all, huge thanks to mother nature for leading the way to Zara! ;)

Fashionsquad x Cooee jewellery collection!

 COOEE. Today marks the launch of my jewellery collaboration with the swedish brand Cooee and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been working on this collection for about a year now and I’m SO happy to finally be able to share it with you guys. It has always been a dream to design my own jewellery collection and I feel so blessed to have been given this opportunity!

fashionsquad x cooeeI knew I wanted to create simple, timeless pieces that I would treasure many, many years from now, and so the cross collection was born. The inspiration came from my love for vintage jewellery, and it all started with an old silver cross found at an antique market in Miami a couple of years ago. Since then it has become somewhat of a tradition to collect cross pendants as souvenirs from my trips around the world and it feels so special to be able to add something I have designed myself to my little collection.

The cross collection consists of four pieces (one necklace, a ring, one cuff and one bracelet) that all come in sterling silver & goldplated brass, and all of the pieces are available for pre-order over at Cooee starting today. Oh, and if you use the code cooee+fashionsquad you will get 10% off your order until Friday next week!
