Notes from a Swedish stylist


Aikido Pro/Bianca Jagger

A few weeks back I helped this new brand Wacay style their look book. I really love to work with the sort of timeless, high quality pieces that defines their design. The white pantsuit is my favorite look from the collection, and when I wear it I feel like an Aikido pro/Bianca Jagger!


Top Three Things I Treasure

These are my three favorite items of the moment!

I found the shoes in a charity shop, and I really love the bead work on them. I hope there’ll be an occasion to wear them before summer is over (might be at my weeding, actually!) or I’ll just treat them as a piece of art and hang them on the wall of my wardrobe. The timeless black sunglasses from Céline and minty scented sunscreen from Aêsop are my best friends on a sunny day—I wouldn’t leave the house without either of them.

What are the materialistic things you treasure most right now?


Are We There Yet?

I been living in this sweater for the past weeks.

“Nature gave us one tongue and two ears so we could hear twice as much as we speak.” Epictetus

Sorry for throwing an “inspiring life quote” in you face, I just feel that these words might actually not be absolute bull. I would really love to be a better listener, but somehow the over-sharer in me always takes over the conversation and goes on and on, blabbing. This is something that I don’t like about myself and would love to improve. So, this summer I will try to speak less and listen more. Shouldn’t be too hard, right?

Sorry for being a bit absent here on the blog. The past days we have been on a midsummer holiday at Andrés parents house on the countryside—a well-needed break I might add. Dylan is going through another face of thinking that sleep is for suckers, so both André and me are more like zombies than actual people at this point. The only thing that keeps me going right now is the thought that I’ll soon be able to surf every day. I had to stop counting the remaining days, but (like a certain Carrie) I can’t help but wonder: ‘Are we there yet?’
