Emma Elwin is dreaming of her happy place.

My mind is miles away today, more exactly: the coast of Northern Spain. Thank you Surfakademin for this beautiful picture. Now I am going to clean the apartment and do some well needed laundry. Wish I was walking on a empty beach instead.

Grandma knitt

If there is something I love to wear it is cozy knitted sweaters. I try to invest in timeless ones in netural colors that works with everything else in my wardrobe. This one is perfect for the indian summer nights we are enjoying here in Stockholm right now. I reminds me of the kind of sweaters my Grandma would knit. Read more about Boomerangs CSR work here!

How to decrease the water usage

Since it is World Water Week in Stockholm, I thought what better than to make a post about how to decrease the water usage for your wardrobe. This will not only be beneficial for the environment but also for the quality of your clothes in the long run. You see, what a lot of people don’t realise is that they wash their clothes way too much, which makes the clothes’ life cycle a lot shorter than if you use other ways of cleaning them. Here are my top four tips on how to care for the wardrobe without using a washing machine. 

1. Try to avoid buying garments that demand a lot of water to be produced, such as conventional cotton and silk.

2. Think twice before you wash your clothes. A lot of people tend to wash their clothes to much. Try to air your clothes instead. I often spray my clothes with lavender water before I air them. If you want to really get rid of unwanted body scent spray on some vinegar water.

3. Spot cleaning is a brilliant way to clean clothes that might not need a full wash.

4. Wearing thin undergarments to protect items that might be difficult to wash and absorb sweat. If you still feel that your garment is in great need of a washing, hand wash or use low temperatures on your washing machine – and environmental friendly washing products.

Cool rope details

I really liked the rope details on the Carin Wester sailor inspired ss16 collection the other day. A detail that one could easily adopt yourself to update a look!
