Spent the day at my summer place and will be spending the coming days there as well. But these pictures are from Italy. The sea here looks deep dark and cold but in fact it was warm refreshing and amazing. Love how you can see my reflection in the last picture. They were taken on our way to aperitivo when the sun was going down. I am wearing H&M and RayBan sunglasses.

Sorry for the lack of updates, turned out my phone did not want to cooperate with me and allow blogging whilst in Italy. But now I am back and here are some pictures of an amazing holiday with my boyfriend. Beach with sunbeds, nice dinners with delicious food, loads of aperitivos, even more sun, crazy heat and a beautiful countryside. But they say a picture says 1000 words so here are 7000 words that will speak better than I can.

Tomorrow my boyfriend and I are off to Italy and so far my bag looks a little like this. I tend to just grab things out of my closet and throw them on my bag, to later decide what actually will be used and finally pack properly so that stuff fits. What I do know is that it will be super hot and humid so I will be bringing light and breezy clothes. I am mainly packing for days at the beach and evenings out at restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
I bought a new sun lotion from Nivea which is supposed to get your melantin started which apparently is what gets you tanned, so basically it speeds up the tanning process. I definitely need that. It is called protect&bronze but it doesn't have any bronzing in it, it just has some kind of substance that gets you tanned or something. Whatever! I will keep you posted on whether I recommend it or not ;-)
I leave for Italia tomorrow and come back late saturday so I don't know how many updates there will be on the blog but if I update it will be through the phone because I am not bringing my laptop.

A few nights ago I wore this, simple. I felt like wearing my white shirt and my yellow bracelets (that I l-o-v-e by the way) and the rest just kind of fell to place. My adored favourite pumps are from Acne and my bag from COS.
Today packing and cleaning before Italy on tuesday is on the schedule. Maybe I will post a "peek in my bag" post later!

New in my closet is this sheer, fringed, festival-inspired top from H&Ms fast fashion collection. I am wearing it today with this necklace and because of the rainy weather it is being matched with black jeans but when the clouds clear up I will wear it with torn jeans shorts or these semi-sporty black shorts I bought recently. Love.

London in a nutshell
The house our apartment is in :-D
School is settled and now one more piece of the puzzle has fallen into place - our housing situation. We have found a property perfect for us in size, price, a private garden for the dog and close to public transport and parks. The picture above is of the outside, it is a victorian building and we will be on the bottom floor. We are at the moment in the midst of signing papers and transferring money. This was the part of the moving I was most worried about and unless something completely unexpected is to happen it is settled. Next step will be finding a movers company, setting a moving date and finding a way to get to London with my baby dog who apparently is too big to fly. But like I said, that is the next step. Just thought I would update you on my situation. London here I come!!!!!!!!!!!

Bag - COS, top - Lindex, shorts - H&M, shoes - Acne, rings - Marc by Marc Jacobs
I hope you haven't forgotten me although I have been absent the past few days. No reason for it really, just been lazing around in the sun, taking care of chores and working. This is one of my favourite outfits but I must admit that I have mixed feelings about shorts and heels, I feel like it can easily become slutty. But I feel like in this case it worked, for a dinner out. I still adore my Acne Box boots and praise myself for buying them every day. I love that the suede makes the black even blacker and I love that they are really lose upwards. I decided to wear my hair super messy so that my look doesn't become too perfect. Today I have been working on my tan and now I'm off to the gym to work on my body ;-)

Honestly the pictures don't really do the bag justice but this is what it looks like, more or less. The leather is really soft and nice and it reminds me of the Proenza Schouler PS1 bag that I have been drewling for for a while, only that this one is from COS and doesn't cost you a fortune.

A few days ago I matched the sun in the firey colours yellow and orange. Both are new buys, the shorts from H&M and the shirt from H&Ms more exclusive store COS. I have been wanting the orange basic top since I was in London last and have sort of been regretting not buying it so I was super happy to find the new COS store in Stockholm selling it. Love the holes for the thumbs and of course the bright orange colour. This day was also the last day I had to carry my black fabric-bag around in lack of no other bag - I bought one at COS on sunday, and I adore it. Will introduce it later on. Now I'm off to a driving lesson.
