I am forever browsing the internet for new outfits, every night I’m with my IPad on the sofa and I guess it’s become my hobby. I’ve noticed that I spend more time ”window shopping” than read books these days and possibly beacuse I don’t really have time for shopping anymore, not the way I used too.
In the past few weeks I have ”almost bought” clothes worth thousands and thousands of kronor (SEK). I am very proud of myself that I haven’t gone wild. For each purchase that I’ve nearly made, I have evaluated exactly what I had in my shopping bag and exactly what I have in my wardrobe and I’ve stopped myself every time. Well, nearly every time.
Last week I bought a long coat from Hope, which arrived home and turned out to be a disaster. It was swiftly returned. Last night I clicked home a jacket from Filippa K, (see below) and this one I may actually keep. It will be great with ballet flats, jeans and a t-shirt this spring. By the way, I am kick starting my spring with a work trip to New Orleans, USA, in April. Cant wait!
It’s been a wonderful day today. We slept in until nine o’clock this morning and had some of my lovely homemade paté for breakfast with a cup of black Swedish coffee.
As the this is our second week of holidays and the final we spend in Sweden, we decided that this was the weel we would visit Allsång på Skansen.
Allsång på Skansen (Sing-along at Skansen) is a Swedish TV show held at Skansen, Stockholm, every summer on Tuesdays between 8pm and 9pm. The audience is supposed to sing-along with musical guests to well-known Swedish songs. The show started in 1935 on a small scale – about fifty people in the audience. Today about 10 000-25 500 people come to each performance. It one of the most Swedish things you can do if you visit Sweden.
I suggested to Mark that we cycle in to town, so apart from getting a wonderful day with our daughter we also got fit. 15 km return.
My outfit was a Classic, old chinos, old blouse, FAV bag from Svenskt Tenn and new Campers (purchased in Los Angeles in April).
Thank you Mark for my beautiful birthday presents!
I just love Tory Burch but I am yet to own anything but a pair of her shoes, ballerina flats off course, with her logo in gold.
The show, her first ever runway show was brilliant. The golf shoes, the pleated skirts and dresses, the colourful patterns, the casual and the dressy all mixed together.
Tory hasn’t been around for a very long time, she began a fashion label in February 2004, but since then she has spread her vision across the world. Most famed for her ballerina flats and her kaftans, she is now branching out. Preppy-boho is what her style is usually referred to. I LOVE it.
In my dream wardrobe there are rows of caftans, and hundres of Tory flats.

I have been working from home today, my cold just isn’t going away, so now it’s time for drastic measure. Lots of green tea and Berocca (antioxidants), early nights, and lots of asthma medicine.
Today I am wearing an outfit inspired by a recent photo of Tory Butch’s stepdaughter Izzie, as featured in August’s US Vogue. I just love the striped jacket, (mine is from Bershka) and the blue jeans. This might be the last chance for this summer outfit.
I need to run now, to collect Pixie from pre-school. On the way home I will collect my new boots (from Tjallamalla) from the post office. Yes, I ordered them online, as I am too lazy to get my sorry ass over to Södermalm to get them in person. Here’s hoping they fit me.
Tory Burch offers a holistic lifestyle vision with her inimitable collection of eclectic sportswear and accessories.
Launched in 2004, the namesake line blends timeless and classic design elements with modern fashion sensibilities.
She draws on an understanding of vintage clothing, fashion history and tailoring, and accents it with bohemian and ethnic details.
I like Tory Burch because of her bold and colourful prints and embroidery, as well as her incredibly cute flats.
