Supporting the spring’s biggest trend?

Yeah I sort of am! 😉 Black and white is one of the most over exploit trends this spring I think. Don’t get me wrong black and white during spring and summer IS rocking it for me, however when was it NOT a trend? 😉 I like to add a pop of colour to it (as you might know…) so here’s an example of using black and whites with pop of colour (please do forgive my sad and washed out tights…) 😉

“The black discussion”

Hm, yes I tend to have this discussion with most of my friends. Now most recently with the lovely Gretchen, or well more her, uhm brother, one could say. 😉 Robert as soooo many of my stylish swedish friends adores black. Well let´s take this back to womens fashion where I am a little more at home. Most swedish women wears mostly black from fall until spring and then maybe during the summer a pop of colour can be worn. I am opposite. I never (well let´s say til at least 90% of never) wears black during fall, winter, spring. I prefer browns as a base and just loooves to use all sort of colours into my outfits. During summertime I can wear an occasionally black or black and white outfit. When everyone else is wearing colour. Hm, am I just obstinate?! At least I am not worse then that I can admit a defeat… I was browsing through fall 2013 fashion and actually found outfits I surely could wear! And yes Robert, if you are reading this, you know by what designer… 😉

All four of the wonderful creations above are by one of my favourite designers, John Galliano. The first two is from his fall line and the second two from his resort collection. Yes I would wear this outfits! All though that don´t mean I will be starting to wear all black! 😉 Maybe an occassionally dress or pant or so…but I still am more of a colourful lady! The more the better, right? 😉

My look for non traditional easter dinner wiff fiancé…

Yeah we just wanted to spend time together this easter day. So after a looong walk in the sunshine, coffe downtown, some chillin in the sofa at home we decided to go out for dinner. We ended up ( as usual 😉 ) at a local italian restaurant with the best pizzas ever! 🙂 Chevré toast as starter, real thin and crisp italian pizza and then pannacotta to tip things of, yummy! When we got home I asked my fiancé to take some photos so I could share my todays look with you guys and I got company by the cutest lil model you´ve ever seen! 😉 Always nice to get a proper welcome when one steps inside the door…

Today I tried on a jacket/dress from Ritva Falla over my Marimekko lemon ice cream dress. I’m in love! I absolutely adore this multifunctional item!!! The print is both cool and timeless and its really really comfortable! How would you rock this jacket/dress?

Spring dresses!

Today I am spending my day in the boutique by Maarit before teaching my dance classes. I thought I’d share some of the spring fashion that is now crowded in store. It is truly a joy to work amongst all this color and patterns! Really makes me in a good mood! Do forgive the quality of the pictures today…or well uhm…the object on them more…eh me that is. LOL I was in a hurry trying to take the pictures in between customers… On my arm you can spot one of the bangles I made this weekend. See HERE.

This first dress is from Ritva Falla and it is a lovely bright raspberry red color. I like the zipper detail and the low waist. Unfortunately we didn’t get my size so this a bit big on me, however I think you get the idea. This dress also came in black and a really neat black and white graphical pattern. I might show you that print on another time. 🙂

This dress is from Marimekko and I have been eyeballing this one ever since it arrived. I haven’t dared to try it on earlier because I thought I might fall in love with it. And I did. This is truly my favorite dress from Marimekkos spring collection. LOVE the colors, the straight line, the diagonal pockets, everything! So now I am debating with myself weather to get the spending-pants on or not…. I rarely shop on full prize, being the bargain queen and all…but this dress seriously makes me think about doing an exception!

What do you think?

Look of the day

Today me and my fiancé is having a whole day together. Supercozy! We had breakfast late, watched movie in the sofa and just relaxed. We´re gonna end our “date-day” with dinner and nightmovie at the cinema. So my outfit is something I can rock both at home in the sofa as well at the cinemas later. 🙂
