My Go-To Look

Posted in Outfits
by Emma Elwin on 25 April, 2017

Blouse, Totême/Tradera. Jeans, Wrangler/Beyond retro. 

All-black really is a never ending trend here in Stockholm, and I must say I’m such a sucker for it! I always feel elegant when I wear this outfit and it works just as well for the office as for a dinner out.


Should I Feel Guilty?

Whoops! I let the worst get the best of me as I bought a pair of brand new shoes—a pair of non second hand shoes, that is. It was simply love at first sight, and I just couldn’t help myself. I almost find them to be small pieces of art.

Now, I need to shop-detox and sell off some things to make my guilt go away…

 


Ready For the Weekend

This is my favorite piece from the new H&M Conscious collection that hit the stores yesterday. Is it not the perfect Friday night’s dress?

Make it last's Fashion Flea Market—Save the Date!

Here's all you need to know about the spring edition of our Fashion Flea Market on Sunday the 7th of May.


I’m thrilled I found these vintage jeans at Adornment the other day. They’ve had a tailor remake an old pair into the perfect blue jeans fit! Really love the color as well.

I spoke to the guy that runs my other favorite second hand store, Pop vintage, and he told me the old 501:s have been so much harder to find this past year. It made me feel so happy—that people are buying more vintage jeans.
Best trend ever!


As I’m writing this, Dylan and me are traveling with my parents up north to spend a few days in their cabin. As the landscape is flashing by my window, the beautiful nature is just so overwhelming. I don’t know if it’s last weeks horrible attack in Stockholm that’s made life, and everything in it, feel even more precious, beautiful and fragile…
Or maybe age has given me a better view of what true beauty is. The forest that grows wild and all the mountains and creeks are sweeping me off my feet, and in my mind I image how people who used to live off this land used to look in these surroundings. Did they wake up every morning thinking “wow”?
When did we start taking nature for granted? And how do we find the way back to living with nature rather than off it? I heard this beautiful quote the other week from Einstein: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as if nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is a miracle”.

Well, getting older is definitely making me more of a “glass-half-full” kind of gal. Hopefully, one day, I too will see all the billions of miracles around me, and truly appreciate them.


Wedding Hair

This summer we’re getting hitched, tying the knot and all that! It’s not going to be one of those big weddings, and I’m hoping not to have to put to much time or money into the planning. We’re going to exchange rings on a beach in France and go surfing afterwards. Nice and easy, just the way we want it.

I didn’t think I would be that exited about the dress, shoes and all that, but surprise, surprise—I have the wedding gene after all! Why wouldn’t she, you think? I’m surprised that I’m even surprised.

One thing I have actually always wanted for my wedding is that long, long hair. Since it’s only a few months away, I realize that I need to go about it in a different way. I need to come up with a hairdo that I can do myself, without too many styling tools involved.

So, I thought I’d try out three different hairstyles, and then you guys can vote for the best one! What do you say?
