Being five again

May 7, 2017

I’ve bought new sneakers with velcro and it’s like being five again <3 Stan Smith Adidas it is and I think we’re gonna create a lot of good memories together. Just wanted to share that with the world, and also wishing you a great week ahead of you! Ok, let’s take a look at my lovelies.

It was that kind of day

February 9, 2017

When you walk and suddenly it’s just there. A sweater, a dress, a notebook, or a bag. That happened to me the other day. I found an awesome bag, and just because I love it so much, I’ll show it to you here too. Sorry, but not sorry.

A surprise gift

September 3, 2016

New stuff.

Liz came home with a surprise package yesterday. What an amazing wife I have ♥ I wore the earrings directly when I went to a kick off party with my job last night, and gosh, I love them. The t-shirt will be ready to be worn on Monday, but more about that day then! *Cliffhanger*.

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Shoe Love

August 25, 2016

When I was in the States this summer, I did some shoe shopping since it’s way cheaper there than in Sweden. Today I decided to waterproof/impregnate the new ones along with some older shoes as well, and while I did it, I thought, why not take some pics, and show you some of my favorites here at home. So here we go.

Shoe love

I’ve been wearing Converse (tall and short ones) for more than half my life and have owned quite a many pair. Unfortunately, I’ve gave/sold many pairs, or a majority of, my Converse when we moved to the States…one of the things I actually regret that I did. Oh, well. I’m working on expanding my collection now, and I decided to go for some classic ones this time. Tall and black.

Shoe loveThe Adidas Superstar has been pretty popular the past years, and I got really retro-looking ones when they came out, since they were really popular when I was around 14. Of course, I had to get a pair as the age of 32 as well. Yes, nostalgia. I bought the Nike ones this past spring, which you can see more of in this blog post.

Shoe love

Vans has also become a favorite brand, and I’ve been wearing these ones quite a bit, and they’re still going strong.

Shoe love

Ok, readers. Friends. Toms. Is. The. Most. Comfortable. Shoes. Liz and I have had several pairs for multiple years, and we both love them. This trip to the States, I came home with fresh new black ones.

Shoe love

New Balance. So comfortable and nice looking. Do I need to say more? Oh, this is model 420.

Shoe love

Dr. Martens. Shoes who look and fit better the more you wear them. Bought these several years ago. I believe I have an Instagram picture from when I got them.

Shoe love

The newest pair of shoes in my collection, and to me, also a new brand in my closet. Clarks. I think we’re gonna have a nice fall together.

I came home with a black cap

June 22, 2016

It was a pretty tough day yesterday, but I rewarded myself with some shopping afterwards and look what I found: a black cap. We’ll be besties in Paris and on the other trips I’m doing this summer!

Nike: Wmns son of force

April 20, 2016

I did it. I bought new sneakers today and I’m in love. I know, I know. Pretty materialistic but I had done something really tough and challenging the day before (which I’ll probably will share with you in the next few days here!), so these shoes were a treat for myself.. Liz was busy at work when I texted her for advice/opinions/approval..so I contacted a couple of other good supporters (read: Liz’s cousin who’s a serious fashion girl and a good friend of mine with good style taste, I think). Thank you guys! FYI: Liz totally liked them once she saw my desperate texts. Although, I had already paid for them by then. Hehe. They are Nike, white tennis shoes/sneakers, called Wmns Son of Force and if interested, I bought mine at Stadium, but you can also find them at other places. Google them. Oh, well. Enough talk. Let’s check them out!

Some shopping

September 20, 2015

Liz and I went downtown and checked out some stores Friday afternoon. It’s a challenge for me since I, sadly, get stressed out and anxious in situations like that nowadays. But I managed it and I also found few things I’ve been looking for lately. Let’s check them out.

I’ve been looking for this kind of scarf for about..hmm..like two years. And now it was just laying there on a table, right in front of me. It was a no brainer.

This gray woolen shorter coat just screamed Lina. Hehe. It has a classic, clean style, and is perfect for fall when it hasn’t gotten that chilly yet. I like how it feels on me and that it’s pretty fitted.

I (or actually Liz found it) have finally found a black knitted, oversized turtle neck sweater! I can live in this one this fall.

These shoes are my go-to fall shoes and I’ve used the same (same brand and bought at the same store chain) for years. When we left the States and I had to go through my shoes and decide which ones to keep or not, I threw away my pair of these shoes, with the deal to get new ones in Sweden. This weekend, it was time to head to the store and get a new pair. Love them so much.

Fall Fashion Inspiration

September 14, 2015

Fall 2015

All the sources are to find here.

I have always been pretty interested in fashion, even though I’m not completely following the exact fashion of the season all the time, but I like to get inspiration from everywhere – being downtown, airports, Pinterest, magazines, Internet in general etc., and then create a style of my own, based on all the inspiration. I’m not a huge fan of major patterns and if I wear a pattern, it has to be neutral colors pretty much. I want my style to have a clean, stylish, and funky look. All at the same time. This fall, I see myself in pretty neutral colors, various shades of gray, black, and white. One of my missions, is to find a knitted oversized black turtle neck sweater (which will not cost me a fortune!). Let me know where I can find one, similar to the one above (second to the left, bottom right corner).
