When I bought this knit I also took a quick look in the sales (H&M has some crazy cheap stuff during the sale). Of course I picked up a few different things, and ended up with five pairs of earrings in my hands. I went for the to boldest pieces, which I think will work well with more casual clothes, to spice up a grey hoodie, and especially for the summer. I’m starting to long for summer, and I guess you can tell if you look in my shopping bags…
I would describe my style as Scandinavian playful and on trend. I love discovering new items, the color for the upcoming seasons, and matching contrasts. So lately I’ve been on the hunt for purple. I am very sure that the color purple (not the movie, just the color), will be one of the colors of 2017 accompanied by yellow.
I love this ruffled purple knit from H&M – it’s feminine and just a little over the top.
It’s the detail that makes the outfit. Right? Lately I’ve been loving bold statement pieces like earrings, prints, and now socks. There’s nothing like a glittery sock saying hello from that Gucci slipper, is there? I think not. So recently I’ve purchased socks that pop, like these purple glitter ones (that wore for the Women’s March here in NYC) and the cutest bee logo/striped socks that remind me so much of the ones Gucci presented this season (see below). ASOS must have thought I was a bit crazy, because my order was just 7 pairs of different statement socks (pretty proud of myself for not buying clothes actually). But I just love them all, and I think they throw some sparkle and glitter on my days.
Here are some of my favorite ones that I absolutely need in my life:

I have started this little series called “Eyes On” to show content that inspires me from day to day. This time I’ve found a great series shot by Daniel Jackson in the subways of New York. I love getting inspired by visual universes, which is mainly why I read blogs, magazines, vlogs and so forth, and i-D is definitely one of my favorite magazines when it comes to new, out-of-the-box content. I always (at least since I started dreaming about living in New York City) wanted to do a photoshoot in the subway. I can’t really put a finger on why, but there’s something about that metal tube being very clean (haha, not really) and raw, which works very well with high fashion. Daniel Jackson has perfectly captured the urban jungle feeling mixed with an over-the-top make-up and outfits styled by Alastair McKimm including brands like Céline, Vetement, Balenciaga, and Alexander McQueen.

Browsing around the online newspapers and other magazines at work I stumbled upon the photos from Gucci?s SS17 campaign, and fell completely in love. The mix of exotic animals, the city of Rome, and high fashion with bold patterns for some reason makes perfect sense to me. Glen Luchford (the photographer) has created such an interesting universe, which I actually feel like I could look at over and over again (might have some of the photos printed out and framed, that?s the level of my excitement). And also, can we talk about how fantastic Gucci has become after Alessandro Michele became Creative Director? Dear Santa, if you?re reading this I want everything.
