LONDON. The rain is pouring down in NY as I’m typing this so what better way of escaping the cold reality than through these pictures? We shot them during a magical spring day in London last month when I was in town for a shoot with Harrods, and the big smile on my face might give you an idea of just how excited I was about going barelegged for the first time in months!

LONDON. After two cancelled flights, lots of delays and over 30 hours sans sleep, I’m finally in London and I can’t put into words how much I’ve missed this city! This morning I was finally reunited with my BFF Andy whom I haven’t seen for 6 insanely long months which we celebrated with some afternoon tea at Liberty’s. I’m only in town for a couple of days before heading to Stockholm on Monday but really wish I could stay longer. London is one of my absolute favorite cities and I’m beyond excited for this weekend. Follow me on instagram @carolinaengman for lots of pictures from my London adventures!

Stockholm photo diary

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!

ELLE. Went to the swedish Elle Gala this Friday with my friend Ida and had such an amazing time. I wore a lovely mint green dress from Dagmar’s s/s 13 collection and she a super cool black & white dress from Diana Orving, and apart from stepping on each others dresses every 5 seconds, we had a total blast!

Huge thanks to Elle for a magical evening and to the lovely people at Dagmar for letting me wear this stunning dress!
