Sweden. A country in some odd way I always felt connected to, but somehow I never visited it. Even though Stockholm is high up my bucketlist, we ended up exploring the countryside of this beautiful country and explored what the Swedes have to offer besides their amazing sense of style. Au contraire, we spend a few days in which we couldn’t care less about our looks, the latest updates and other superficial matters – they somehow turned out to be less important. We stepped back from all of it for once and I have to admit it felt so nice. We relaxed, hiked, plucked berries and most of all: got overwhelmed by the captivating beauty of everything that the Swedish nature had to offer. I can truly say that stepping back in this case became a move forward.
Oslo, a city of good coffee, well-dressed people, trolls, the Sculpture Park, vikings, the Olympics in 1952, The Opera House.. Much more to see ofcourse, but since we only had one day, we took it easy, wandered around the city, climbed the Opera House (gorgeous building!) and drank coffee on one out of many cool coffee places. Ina, we can’t thank you enough for the kindness of having us come over at 1 o’clock at night and showing us around in your wonderful hometown.
At this moment we already left Oslo and we’re headed off to Sunne, a small village in Sweden, where my brother in law and his girlfriend live. From the clean, awesome city of Oslo to nothing more than forest, mountains, the occasional moose, and peaceful quiteness. Going to do some hiking today, explore the forests a bit I guess? Love to be not-sure on what today will bring us. Wanna keep track of this journey? Make sure you follow @sffte on Instagram.
Have a nice Sunday, make it a good one.
Layers with some kind of sporty touch for today. The pics don’t do this perforated skirt any justice, but I love how the sporty fabric gives an interesting look to a classic pencil skirt. Totally justified to wear this skirt with sneakers, right? And sweaters. No need to come up with excuses to wear sweaters, ever. I’m off to a busy day of work now, gotta finish some things off before I catch my flight to Oslo first. Sweden and UK afterwards. Can’t wait.
Looks like the search for the most perfect, basic, black, wool wintercoat has come to an end before fall even has kicked in properly (minus those two crappy days weatherwise..). I’m on the hunt for an oversized, large grey one (or navy? Or both?) but I think we never ever need a real excuse (I mean.. think about the cost per wear of this piece..) to indulge in a coat like this. Now the funds to pay for it.
The perfect black coat – Carin Wester (who else?)
