It’s the first week of fall, at least when it comes to our working minds. The Make it last team has been off to different places during summer – Lisa has hidden in the Swedish archipelago with her newborn baby, Emma has surfed the waves of Biarritz for a month and Mikaela and Johanna have both been swimming the pretty parts of Italy – and it’s only this week most of us have been reunited at the office (which is such a joy even Lisa can’t stay away).
It’s also the first week when it makes sense, at least in Stockholm, to wear jeans instead of summery shorts and skirts. It’s kind of nice actually, even if we’d love for summer to linger. You know, being able to wear “real clothes” again?
Lisa wears vintage Wrangler from Beyond Retro. Mikaela wears the still most desirable jeans from Louis Vuitton fall 2014 (Ghesquiere’s debut) found at Vestiaire Collective. Emma wears sustainable unwashed denim from Filippa K.
