I call this the River of No Return outfit. Pace jeans and a handed down top (from Liselotte!).


I like these cordial spoons.


Pale green 50s sunglasses I found at a flea market.


Progress of this painting.


Found some old photos. This is me at about 14!

We went to a beautiful spot by a nearby lake.

Double Instagramming.


The light looked pretty through the cordial bottle.

A Vine video from the same occasion.

I got these beautiful bookends a while ago.


They look good with my mermaid figurine.


Outfit. Etsy blouse, Vivien of Holloway trousers, Swedish Hasbeens and a scarf from Lush.


…and a jacket from Ebay.

Some photos from Henrik:

Waiting for Henrik in a shop. I’m wearing a knitted set from Etsy, my grandmother’s old leather jacket and Minnetonka moccasins.

The other side of the double Instagramming.

Heading into town.

I love my winklepickers but wish I could find a similar pair with heels, or a pair in a smaller size. These are really too big and clunky so I seldom wear them.

Henrik got us these mid century modernism books I’ve been coveting. They’re the best!

Had a perfect day at amusement park Gröna Lund with my colleagues. My skirt and shoes are from Etsy and the shirt was a gift from Sän a long time ago.
