This is a friendly reminder to prepare your shoes for winter. Resole and check the heels if they need changing.

Emma Elwin shares one of her clothing care tip for traveling.

Blouse, Old touche. T-shirt, Filippa K. Trousers, Stella McCartney. Linen water, Washologi. Bag, Pop vintage. Knitted sweater, Gant Rugger. Trousers, Marget Howell. Shoes, Celiné. 

This is part two of the art of packing. My next tip is quite simple. If you are traveling and don’t have a washing machine at hand. Simply try to air your cloths after using them. If you have a scented spray to re-fresh clothing spray the garment after it has been aired.


Feeling blue

Emma Elwin's wardrobe is mostly blue and... Blue.

The other day when I was packing down my wardrobe and I realized something. The majority of my clothes has gone from black to blue. Everything in my wardrobe is pretty much a shade of blue, without me really realizing it. I found this when I googled the color:

Blue is sharply refracted by the eyes. This causes the lens to flatten and to push the blue image back. We perceive that blue areas are receding and smaller.

Brown corduroy and embroidered shirt

The most important thing

The trosers I choose for this weeks one piece three looks are designed by one of my favorite designers Margaret Howell. I think this quote of hers describes her aesthetics pretty well.

“I suppose I’m just getting on making clothes for people to wear. That’s the most important thing.”

Sweater, Filippa K. Dungarees, Old from Topshop. Here is that last look with the grey crew neck, I promise. I just couldn’t decide which garment should be my next one. But now I have, finally, decided that It will be my brown corduroy trousers from Margret Howell. I’ll show you the first look tomorrow morning.

Emma Elwin shares her tips on how to pack smart for traveling.

The following week I will be living out of my suitcase due to some work we arre having done at the apartment. I must say I prefer to travel light, I want to have as small a suitcase as possible. To make this happen I have a few tricks up my sleeve that make it easier to decide what comes and what goes.

The first thing I do is to think about what scenarios I will find myself in and what clothes will suit these occasions.

The second thing is to lay all the clothes on the bed. This way you get a good overview of what goes together, which colors that match (or mismatch, which ever way you prefer it), etc. You can easily see if you need more tops or bottoms. Also pay attention so that the shoes you bring go with all the different outfits.

I’m not a big fan of accessorizing, it’s a weakness of mine. But for traveling I find that a scarf gives an already used outfit a new life.

So easy to wear

I did actually end up wearing this sweater in five other ways. The high neck and the natural color makes these kind of sweaters so easy to wear with pretty much everything in your wardrobe.

I found these pictures from earlier this summer in Bretagne. If I had to choose one garment to wear for the rest of my life, it would probably be these dungarees. Do you guys have a garment that you wanna wear all the time? Would love to hear about it!

Emma Elwin is trying out a new organic beauty skin care brand.

I am very happy that this beauty brand Moonsun showed up on my radar. I am always on the hunt for a new organic lotion! This is a Swedish organic skincare brand made with high quality ingredients. I love the vitamin C serum, I think it’s gonna be a good friend for when the cold and windy weather hits Stockholm for real.

A piece of art

I am so happy to finally have my own Hus-Hus shirt! It really is a piece of art embroidered on a vintage shirt made by the amazing Camilla Engström. I love how she has given the shirt a new life by coloring it with vibrant treads, and I love how the collar is cut off.

Peacoat

The chameleon of coats

Since autumn decided to come to Stockholm I had to change the sandals I had chosen for this weeks “One garment three looks” into a peacoat. The peacoat has always been a coat that I have admired for being the chameleon of coats. It works no matter what style your currently into. It is a true wardrobe classic that will work for pretty much any occasion.

Can't let go of summer

Since I felt more inspired to find new ways to use my already exiting wardrobe during fashion week, I decided to continue with the whole one piece-three looks format! After three looks I need to choose one garment, shoe or accessory from the last look to create three new looks with. But how is this sustainable, you might ask yourself. Well I can’t buy anything new starting today, and it enforces me to work with the wardrobe I have already built.
This week’s chosen piece is my favorite pair of sandals! Today’s look is really a mix of some of my most timeless garments. The peacoat, a classic white shirt, a cable knit and simple black slacks. Pieces that are not only great wardrobe pillars but also oh so comfortable.
