Sporty colors

Standard
The sun is back and I’m celebrating with color.
I love graphic prints and shapes, and I love bright colors.
This outfit is a perfect mix of all of the above. It has a sporty vibe to it and one thing I’m not is sporty.
I don’t own a single pair of sneakers or converse, it’s just not my thing.
A goal of mine is to become more sporty, not in the terms of style but in making an effort to work out.
I got a gym membership at the beginning of the year and it went well for a while, and then it didn’t.
I fail to show up.
The reason I started working out was that I had no choice. I had gotten a back injury and it required exercises that was especially designed for me personally. I followed the program and my back went from bad to better.
And when you start feeling great again you start thinking that you don’t have to do this anymore. But my back is acting up again so this might be a sign that I need to work out for the rest of my life.
And the sooner I start the longer that life might become.
The moral of the story; don’t just look sporty – be sporty!!!

What to wear in the rain

Standard
I don’t mind the rain as long as it’s not cold.
A warm rainy day just feels like a deep cleanse.
I love colors but for some reason green has escaped my closet.
This season we’re in love with floral prints and this lovely pencil skirt from Marni will compliment any closet and body. The ribbed design sweater with green details is from Kenzo. It helps make the look more casual and relaxed. As does the faux leather flats from YesStyle.
The green cotton and calf leather tote from Chloe adds a little bohemian feel to the outfit. Since it’s raining an umbrella is in order. This bubble shaped umbrella with the colorful floral print is from Vera Bradley.
Rain or shine, never compromise your style!

Time for Tea

Standard
And another sunny day! Must be some kind of miracle going on.
It’s sunday, it’s sunny and I’m planning on spending the entire day in my garden reading and sipping tea
How’s that for a perfect sunday:)
Print is very on trend and when combining both floral and abstract you’re right on the money.
This season is all about the artistic flare, so I tried being a little bit of an artist in creating the tea-cup. What you think:)

Today is a beautiful day. It’s warm and sunny. Like a real summer’s day.
It’s time to dig our summer clothes out of the closet, and we better hurry cause tomorrow they say it’s going to rain again.
For the first time this season I’m wearing shorts. Mine our not as fabulous as the shorts in this set, but oh how I wish!
This blue dream of a denim shorts with flower applique are signed Ermanno Scervino.
The ruffle v-neck top is from BCBGMAXAZRIA.
Ballerinas from Jimmy Choo and a super cute cross body shape bag from Brakeburn.
I’m off into the sun, see ya!

(don’t) Let it Rain

Standard
It seriously needs to stop raining!
A part from a few days we’ve had rain this entire month.
Summers are short where I live so it breaks my heart to see time pass by and realize summer is missing in action. I need a little bit of sunlight, I’m not asking for a tan but a tiny dose of vitamin D please!
The worst part is that I don’t get to wear all my lovely summer outfits.
I actually like rain, as long as it’s not too cold but when it comes to rain, less is more!
Enough with the whining.
Brown and blue are a color combo I adore, how about you?
Let’s look beautiful in the rain:)

Metallics & Pastels

It’s a cold day so today we need a warm coat to go outside.
I’m wondering if summer got cancelled this year.
It sure looks like it.
The only comfort is that you can wear trousers like these.
I love this pair! High-waist trousers in pink silk from Chloe.
Love love love!
Asymmetry is a trend worth trying out and this colorblock top from Bouchra Jaraar looks great whether it is paired with pants or a skirt.

I forgot to post this on Sankthans but better late than never.
Sankthans is midsummer night. It is one of the many Christian holidays that has married a pagan holiday and become one.
Sankthans was originally a church holiday in memory of John the Baptist and was celebrated the 24th of June. On June 23rd pagans celebrated Jonsok, the day the sun turns. Also called midsummer night.
These two days got mixed together and is now still called Sankthans but it’s celebrated on June 23rd and the celebration is only about the day being the longest in the year.  We build a fire and eat, mainly.
You can read more about it here.
If you’re not married then you can get a glimpse of your future husband by picking seven different wild flowers and keep them under your pillow while sleeping.
But, you’ll have to try it next year since I’m way late with this post:)
