Last Friday Sweden celebrated it’s National Day. It’s a national holiday, so most people had a three-day weekend! Luckily the weather was absolutely beautiful, so everyone headed outdoors. And so did we. Today (and I mean all day!) was spent at the botanical garden, which is situated about 5 minutes from where we live.
We started by feeding ducklings. Johannes loves to feed animals, but then again who doesn’t?
I have updated my spring wardrobe with this cool blouse from Stenströms. The wild animal print features a lot of species, but the funniest one must be the giraffe wearing sneakers.
And at the same time, when you’re looking at this shirt from a distance, it simply looks like a greenish shirt with an abstract print. A pretty flattering one, too!
This season I do a lot of flirting with the equestrian look. Overall, equestrian look is extremely popular in Sweden among women of all ages and its practicality suits my style of living perfectly at the moment. Being a young mother means I have to do a lot of things on the go, and there’s not much room for planning ahead, so I need something easily variated and not too trendy. Another thing I like about the equestrian look is that you never have to (or should, for that matter) wear it full on. Just a couple of right details is enough!
And when it comes to adding accessories to this look, a greyhound feels like the second best choice after a horse!
Here’s me on one of the city squares the other day. The Swedish climate doesn’t allow wearing this coat too often, but when I actually get the chance to put it on, it really makes me feel like a bright spot among the greyness!
I love this (fairly) new trend where you can pair trainers with anything from jeans to dresses. It fits my lifestyle perfectly right now! I walk a lot on a daily basis, so I’ve bought a lot of comfortable and colorful walking shoes (I like Adidas best). It’s all about function and simplicity for me, but I think it looks a bit fun and edgy, too.
