The time is flying here in Galicia. The days are filled with amazing surf and quality time with friends and loved ones. Since I’ve lost track of time I did not realize that I have not posted here for almost 5 days. Sorry for that. I have so many pictures to share with you guys from the last few weeks.

Now I live

I would like to live some place like Biarritz, close to the sea and surf.

The ocean is such a beautiful part of nature, we should really take better care of her. From today I will always bin at least one piece of trash that I find on the beach every time I visit the ocean. Guys, I have to say I really would like to live some place like Biarritz, close to the sea and surf. How will I be able to leave this beautiful place?

Soft cotton and sneakers

These dungarees are one of my most faithful travel companions. On this trip I’m pairing them with cotton tops and Vans.

One of the things Emma loved about last week with the Yogiakademin was all the amazing food.

One of the things I love last week with the Yogiakademin was all the amazing food. My favorite meal was the porridge we had for breakfast that our chef Emma made. She cooked oatmeals, flaked rice, chickpea flakes, flax seeds, sunflower seeds and salt. For topping we had cinnamon, ginger and apple puree. Delicious!

How will I ever be able to wear jeans again?

These trousers might be the most comfortable pair I’ve ever had. Last week at the yoga retreat I was wearing them around the clock.  My favorite combination is to pair them with this cotton body and sandals. How will I ever be able to wear jeans again?

Could almost fly In my golden shoes

I normally don’t like these kind of sneakers but the person who was wearing them was really nice so I couldn’t resist taking a picture. They make me think of a Swedish song that goes something like this: And I could almost fly in my golden shoes…

It’s time for me to go to the city of Biarritz, Europe’s surf central! I have so many nice pictures to show you here from the Yogiakademins retreat, where I’ve spent the last few days. I feel so much more at ease and so ready to face hours of paddling on every wave I can get my hands on.

Sandals make everything work

I never want summer to end! I don’t know how to describe this so that it makes sense, but I feel so much more stylish when I get to pair my outfits with a pair of sandals. The sandals just make everything work.

Makes me want to wear jewelry all the time

I am really not jewelry kind of girl, I barely wear accessories at all. A pair of sunglasses and watch is enough for me. Sometimes I push it and wear a necklace, but not very often. But there is one designer that makes me want to wear jewelry all the time, well, her jewelry at least – Sophie Bille Brahe. She also seems like a really nice person. Read our interview from last year with her here

I've come to the conclusion that the perfect way to wear your hair in summer is in braids.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the perfect way to wear your hair in summer is in braids. So my goal this summer is to make as nice a braid as my friend Kalle did on me a few weeks back on a shoot.

Days at sea

Now it’s three days until I get to spend my days in the ocean. I really can’t express how much I long for days at sea!


Pick of the day

It's not just the woolen, almost see-through material, but the fit is as close to perfection you can get.

T-shirt, Filippa K.

My favourite t-shirt model of all time is this one from Filippa K. It’s not just the woolen, almost see-through material, but the fit is as close to perfection you can get. And why I wanted to tell you is because this t-shirt is on sale right now…

Everything is finally packed and I'm ready to leave for a week of yoga followed by two weeks of surfing.

Everything is finally packed and I’m ready to leave for a week of yoga followed by two weeks of surfing. I’m so exited, I can’t even tell you. The other day I picked up all the gear I needed at my favorite Surf store 654 here in Stockholm where I get all my surf stuff. I love that this surf leash it’s made out of eco-friendly material. I also love that it’s the only store where you can get Patagonia women’s wear here in Stockholm. Thanks you guys for selling women’s winter wetsuits!


The perfect jacket

Even though it was on sale...

I can really go on and on about finding the “perfect” garments. Whatever that means. I should probably call them classical items instead, stuff that lasts over time. I believe this jacket to be one of them perfect/classical garments that works over time. Or I am just trying to justify myself buying something quite expensive, even though it was on sale… But this is absolutely true about the jacket: It works with EVERYTHING I have in my wardrobe. Literally everything! Party dress, jeans, patterns, night wear, daywear. Everything!

Shorts obsessions

From time to time I get these obsessions. This summer it has been to find the perfect blue shorts. I was very happy when I found these! The body is from Gina Tricot.

Emma is not much for loud clothes when it comes to my everyday outfits, but she loves carefully thought-out details.

Shirt, Stylein.

I’m not much for loud clothes when it comes to my everyday outfits. But I love details. This shirt is a great example of a detail that makes a shirt special. As you see it got my initials embroidered on it. Thanks ever so much Stylein!

Here is a picture from midsummer that I forgot to publish. The top is one of the most beautiful piece in my wardrobe, and I think the fact that it is made with sustainable materials makes it even more so.
