On my mind..

LOVE. Chloé really nailed it with their Resort 2014 collection and this look in particular really makes my heart skip a beat. The crisp white shirt, the nude cage heels and those amazing two-tone pants, pure genius! This is exactly what I want to be wearing for spring and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the high-street gods will produce something similar as the pants are a tiny bit out of my budget so to speak..

STHLM. During our trip to Stockholm we stayed a couple of days at the lovely Scandic Grand Central where the picture above was shot, and it’s safe to say that I fell head over heels in love with those large, beautiful windows. Just imagine spending your weekends cuddled up with a blanket, some tea and a book on that window sill, sounds pretty amazing if you ask me.

We had so much fun during the trip that our two weeks litterally flew by, but we managed to snap a bunch of pictures for a little photo diary that you can check out below. Have a great weekend everyone!

Ask any Swede and you’ll learn just how serious we are about our “fika” (Fika roughly translates to coffee break, but really, it’s so much more than a mere coffebreak!). That, and taking your shoes off when you enter someones home, because why on earth would you wear your dirty shoes inside? My American friends laugh their butts of everytime I remove my shoes while hanging out at their place, but that’s just how Swedes roll. These pictures where shot at the lovely café at Scandic Grand Central on one of those rainy days and let me tell you, that was one hell of a cinnamon roll!
