What I added to my imaginary shopping cart last night

Isn’t midnight pretend shopping just the best? I feel like I always have such clear visions about my style and what I like during late nights in the couch. It’s like when you’ve been on vacation for a while and just can’t wait to get back to reality and MAKE SHIT HAPPEN. Do you know what I am talking about?

Anyways, jut like Hanna Eklund says, planning your vacation wardrobe is almost better than wearing it. I said almost. But creative ideas about your sartorial future are so uplifting. You can be whoever you want to be. So, let’s see who I plan to be the upcoming weeks.

The chunky

grunge shoes

I know!!!!!!

I so didn’t think this was me, I still have scars from middle school when I was into ‘punk’ and wanted everyone to know. But chunky Sex Pistols approved shoes (they would probably not approve Gucci and Burberry making them though) are on the top of my list right now.

Platform loafer, Gucci

Heavy heavy ruffles

I stumbled across my dream blouse yesterday. Have you seen anything more dreamy in your life? Have you?

It’s from Loeil, a brand I’ve followed for quite some time, but never bought anything from. They are so good with their aesthetic. But the true reason why I haven’t yet purchased anything is because I wouldn’t be able to choose, EVERYTHING IS JUST SO GOOD. So I resist it all. As I type this, I realize how stupid it sounds.

Next stop: collaboration station


Every year, Loewe makes a collaboration with Paula’s Ibiza. It’s just like you think it would be. Still Loewe but a lot more hippie. Some think Ibiza is just DJ concerts on beach clubs, but Ibiza is so much more. Just ask Linn.

70s sunbeds and bags

I saved this image from Rixo’s instagram the other day and could not decide if I liked the bag or the sun bed more. So, I started researching and what are the chances that these two 70s beds, who reminds me a lot of the one in the picture, are up for sale on my favorite auction site? I won’t buy them though, I have no space for sun beds in my apartment.

But if you want to place a bid and have a very comfy summer, you should.

Beach season is coming

I recently discovered swimwear brand Araks (they do apparently do lingerie and resort wear too) and oh man. How pretty are they? I’ve never been a sucker for expensive swimwear. I’ve bought a couple of bikinis every year and by next summer they are usually gone. Not a very sustainable way to shop. But I will be better now, promise!
