The spring is upon us and so is the time to put the wool coats back in the closet for a few months. Meanwhile we can bring the lighter ones out again, or perhaps buy a new one or two? Below I’ve listed some of the biggest trends this season. We see street style and sporty vibes in a perfect balance with flowers and the classic spring pastels. What more can you wish for? I hope you like this post and don’t forget to stay original, gorgeous!

After a meltdown in front of my closet (there were both tears and screams) I realised I was in need of some new clothes. So, I dragged my mother with me to Gothenburg for a shopping spree and let’s just say it got a bit expensive… But it was totally worth it!
With that said I thought I would show you what I got. I haven’t taken pictures of any of the clothes yet, therefore I will only show the accessories in this post. Ready? Let’s get into it!
Bag, Mango, 299 SEK (I’m in love with this colour combination, so gorgeous!)
Earrings, Mango, 99 SEK
Sunglasses, GinaTricot, 79:90 SEK
Rings, H&M, 79:90 SEK
Shoes, H&M, 399 SEK (THESE ARE MY LIFE. Silver is really trendy right now)
Note: One Swedish krona (SEK) is about 0,11 dollars/0,10 euro/0,09 pounds.
I’m actually quite a dress lover and own more than a few gorgeous pieces of fabric, but I can’t seem to wear enough of them. When doing so I easily feel over dressed, even if a more “casual” outfit technically takes more time and energy to compose.
This dress in particular is very easy to wear though. The colour and cuts makes it perfect for any day, like yesterday for example. I woke up, had no energy nor inspiration (I mean, it was like 5:45 in the morning?) and it just hung there in the wardrobe like a mirage. The dress is from GinaTricot, a Scandinavian fashion chain (you can find their website here), where I bought it earlier this fall. I wear it to school now and then but would really like to wear it more often, as with my other dresses… Well, one can’t be born into everything, some things has to be thought. Are you wearing dresses often?
Dress from H&M
Oh, how much I love christmas. My path to school is finally decorated, the stores have switched to their holiday displays and saffron buns as well as ginger bread are sold in every café. Do I need to clarify that my holiday spirit is on top? I’m actually going christmas gift shopping with a friend today too! Aaaah, exciting! (If clarification was needed, my holiday spirit is on top).
At this time of the year I just want to blend in and become one with the decorations and displays. What better way to do that than to dress red? Sadly I don’t own a lot of christmas-red garments though… But I couldn’t resist to at least spend a few hours at Polyvore composing dreamy outfits for this wonderful time of the year. I mean, just look at the Dorothy Perkins coat in outfit number two and the boots in number three. DREAMY.
Very often when I’m standing in front of my closet I tend to choose pretty basic colours. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s easy and always turns out stylish. But since it can get a little dull I like to spice these outfits up using my makeup, sometimes with eyeshadow but most often with a bright, bold lip. I recall writing this in my last post and I do apologise for being repetitive but it’s just such an easy and fun way to add a little twist to your outfit!
Aside from the red lip, I’ve also mixed a lot of different materials to make something happen in this particular outfit. I have leather (both shiny and none-shiny ;)), wool, som kind of sheer blouse material (?) and jean. In addition my patterned scarf obviously makes it all a whole lot more interesting… My point is however that it’s not necessarily hard to take an outfit to the next level. It’s all in the details. Sometimes, a tiny bracelet is enough to get that on fleek look. Don’t you think? 🙂

Some days are simply not ment for creativity. At least not when it comes to putting together the perfect outfit. I find that these days occur more often during fall and winter. Luckily, I have found the perfect formula of garments for these days:
Knitted Sweater + Leather Pants + Bold Lip
Mark my words: This combination can not go wrong. It’s the perfect mix of casual and chic which can’t end in anything but a fashionable outfit! It’s like made for dull and lazy mornings! Take a look for yourself. This outfit took me about three minutes to compose and only consists of three vital components: A knitted sweater, a pair of leather pants and a bold lip. Easy peasy!
Sweater – Primark ◊ Pants – Dr. Denim ◊ Lipstick – Cherrypop by Bella-Pierre.
The snow has come to Sweden and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I mean, it’s practically christmas! Okay. Not quite. But still, snow is always exciting. And you can’t fight me on that two of this seasons key pieces – the faux fur and the over-knee boot – are like made for snow. But let’s dig in to it anyway, shall we?
◊ The Faux Fur ◊
A faux fur is cozy itself and can be paired with almost anything to create a stylish look. In addition it feels like you’re being hugged by a giant, fluffy teddy bear. I mean, does it really get better? Yes, it does actually, if you pair it with a pair of over-knee boots! (Yes, I’m very proud of the transition). The combo can be worn anywhere: to the movies, to a fancy dinner, to shopping with the crew or just a coffee with the grandma. I repeat: anywhere.
◊ The Leather Boot ◊
Previously this fall the suede boot has been in the spotlight. Personally, I think it’s time for the leather boot to get some attention (not just because that’s the only kind I own, keep reading and you’ll see that I actually have good arguments). Let’s face it: suede and snow is not a good combination whilst leather can survive basically any weather. It’s also a nice contrast to the soft fur and adds a certain amount of attitude to the outfit.
Now, it doesn’t get better. So grab your wearable teddy bear, boot up and don’t forget to stay gorgeous!
Plum fur – H&M ◊ Pink fur – Primark ◊ Boots – Belle Shoes
Ps: The images were originally very blue, I’ve tried to get them as close to reality as possible but my not so skilled editing resulted in very different colours on different pictures. Please overlook this, I’m still learning 🙂 Ds.
