ROUGE



Yesterday I bought new spring plants, there was sun and 15 degrees. Not quite summer yet but I'm looking forward to it and as usual, despite my pregnant state, dreaming of bikini's no less. It's a feeling, it's a mood, it's the smell of summer.

TONE



The house smells of gardenia and fresh laundry. Thinking of the beach and jewel tones. Waiting for baby--everything will be fine.

ODE

 


I love Jane and I love her necklaces.

DAY



Sitting here, heavily pregnant and largely couch-bound wishing there was a little more glamour in my day. Would love to get out of town and see something new but I'd settle for a few books and maybe some Aurelie Bidermann

REFLECT

 

Fashion is both a reflection of and a reaction to the times we live in, where the importance of art and creativity should take precedence over all else. I wholeheartedly agree with Diana Vreeland when she said, "Fashion must be an intoxicating release from the banality of the world." Without it I feel everything would be lifeless and therefore pointless.

CHECK



Every year, at this time, there's this hope for spring and summer. The hope that you'll do it better this year, that your closet will be the stuff of dreams. Mind you this is usually before you add it all up but regardless of whether it comes together in reality or not, it's the dreaming that counts. Soon you'll be able to wear lighter coats and shoes and heaven forbid maybe even show some flesh.

FRESH-FACED


As possibly the gloomiest month of the year approaches I'm dreaming of fresh-faced beauty. Peaches and cream.

AWAY


I'm done with winter now. After Christmas it's really just a countdown until the first signs of spring and then summer.

SPRING TO IT



This spring - gold barrett's, tan suede coats, the palest of pinks and block sandals...I could sail away.

PINK


Well that's Christmas done and dusted. Right now we're in the the process of painting the baby room in Farrow & Ball's pink ground which is similar to In Bed's peach linen sheets. One coat down, one to go.

LITTLE DARLIN'


There are few things that can really represent who you are from the outside in but I think jewellery is one of them. You may have gathered by now that I'm a fan of trinkets- all the different stacks, combinations and stones. It's endless and the hunt is so thrilling. But to me jewellery is so much more than that. It's sentimental, you wear it and you think of the person who gave it to you, you carry it around with you and it reminds you of all the places you went wearing it. You engrave it and pass it down. I love a smattering of gold in summer against the warmth of a tan and white gold or silver is clean and pretty in the paleness of winter. Line & Jo are creating some really innovative pieces...too many.

ORDINARY


I just found out yesterday that I'm going to be having a baby girl next April and couldn't be happier. Looking forward to all this...

"Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable, but it is a way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes, apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them, The extraordinary will take care of itself."  -William Martin

TUESDAY



It's only Tuesday and this week is off to a rough start. What I wouldn't give to hang out at home for the rest of it. But tomorrow is hump day, and I've got something to look forward to...more of that later.

SPARKLE


Who could resist these Saint Laurent Mary Jane's? There's always a bit more sparkle around at this time of the year given that it's almost holiday season, but it really is everywhere right now. A little bit of sparkle is never wrong, in fact I'm going to go so far as to say it's almost necessary in the darkness of the winter months. An early Christmas present perhaps, from yours truly...

THREE COLOURS


Still thinking of going back to school. Looking into all the opinions and trying to work out what to apply for--you almost need a degree just to work out how to apply for one. Studying used to be a chore but now I see it more as something I want to do. I want to know more about what I'm interested in and it's kind of thrilling to think that it might actually be possible.

GREY


Feels like I've been so busy this weekend but without really having done much...strange. It's been a sky of endless grey here and you think that's dull, it is, but it was pointed out to me today that constant blue skies and hot weather could be equally as uninteresting. Maybe that's true. Maybe constant change, or lack of, is more interesting because it forces you to look inward for inspiration.

WANT



The hair I want seems to change weekly, but that might have something to do with the changing season. At the moment long, unruly curls are in favour. It's raining again today, but I've been waltzing around in this Isabel Marant-esque cropped shearling jacket I bought yesterday and it's so soft and cosy...I think I'm in love. On top of that Lena Dunham's book just arrived.

COSY


Fall is here. This week has brought rain, storms and ice-cold wind. The rain is nice, the cold not so much. Though I think despite the fact that fall inevitably leads to winter, it's a beautiful time of year in Stockholm. The trees are just starting to turn and drop and there's the smell of wood fires in the air at night. It might be time to buy some new sweaters and boots- you can never really have enough of either, especially here.

THE CHOP



Last week I got my hair cut short. Perhaps it wasn't the smartest idea considering it's getting colder, but something about it feels right at the moment.

PROMISE



At home sick, wishing I weren't and trying to distract myself from my misery with the promise of next year's summer. Next year is also the year we go back to visit family and friends in Australia, so we essentially get two summers. Not bad.
