summer nights

SUMMER NIGHTS. Say what you want about our cold, dark, never ending winters, but you simply can’t beat Swedish summer! These long, warm, bright days that never seem to turn into night is what makes me survive the long cold winters. The fact that summer is only here for such a short time makes it even more special.

Last night was one of those magical Swedish summer nights when the sun doesn’t want to go to bed, so I decided to throw on one of my most treasured dresses by swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt. I managed to snag one of the last pieces over at 30 Cancan (who by the way have a great selection of Swedish designers), and it’s everything I hoped for and more. You can’t really see the delicate detailing on these pictures, but close up it’s breathtakingly beautiful!
Ok, enough of the Swedish propaganda, I’ll let the pictures below speak for themselves ;)

  1. Everything, the shoes, the dress, the hair and the sunglasses, they go all together so well like a perfect puzzle piece.

  2. During nights like these you wish you didn’t have to sleep for a week)) Loved the Swedish propaganda part! I might go to Sweden this month, so it was a very interesting to read.
    And it’s a beautiful dress, so delicate.
