My dad passad away very suddenly in January this year. I'm still trying to understand that he won't be around to see my kids grow up. He loved being a grandad. The time has now come for me and my family to go through his belongings, clean out and eventually sell the house he built, and where I grew up. Therefore, I'm taking a couple of weeks off blogging. I'm also going to festival with my husband, without the kids. I hope it will be a nice break from a very emotional situation. So, take care and enjoy summer!

Blue and plaid

Jak & Jil

Besides stripes, a have a soft spot for plaid and blue, pretty often combined. If  I have a choice I always go for the blue version of something I like. When it comes to plaid I love Isabel Marant's plaid shirts, the materials and the colours are usually exactly what I'm looking for and feel comfortable in. I love that she repeats the plaid shirts every season. For me, blue is a neutral just like black, grey and white. I definitely wear more blue than white tops/shirts. The result of my weakness for blue and plaid is that my wardrobe contains more than a few items like the ones below.

J Brand jeans, Etoile shirt, Dieppa Restrepo oxfords, Acne belt, Etoile linen tee, vintage belt, A.P.C wedges, Rag & Bone shirt, Rag & Bone ballet flats, Etoile plaid jacket, Isabel Marant necklace.


I just realised that my past few posts are more detailed versions of this old post. Nothing I planned, I guess I'm running out of ideas, haha! Do you also find yourself choosing one colour/print in particular?

More dressing for summer

More dressing for summer

More dressing for summer by Garderob

This is how I'd like to dress for summer, I love the Opening ceremony sandals and the summery A.P.C bag. My slouchy version of the collage is this first picture - Etoile linen pants, Hope tee and A.P.C sandals. As the temperature rises I tend to wear more slouchy than skinny pants and jeans, but my skinny lightweight Rodebjer pants are comfortable when it's warm too - here with an A.P.C tee, A.P.C wedge espandrilles and Jerome Dreyfuss Mini Twee bag.

The A.P.C tee is a good example of why I've been buying that brand since the late 90's. It's a classic stripe tee with a nice neckline, buttons and excellent quality cotton. When I was a student in the late 90's/early 2000's A.P.C didn't have an online store, you had to sign up for the catalouge and call and place an order. I remember how I used to save up and wait for the catalouge to arrive, it was like waiting for Christmas! I wish I would have saved all the catalouges, it'd so much fun to have a look at them now. I have a feeeling that their aesthetic is pretty much the same. I have a few really old A.P.C items, and I still like them and wear them occationally. It's the only brand I can think of that I've liked for such a long time. I usually don't like the entire collection, but there are always one or two pieces that could fill a hole in my wardrobe. I especially love their shoes, knits and coats. Do you have a brand that you keep coming back to?

Holiday weekend

Just a quick post before we head out to the beach. I've had some time off from work because of public holidays. It's been a very warm weekend with a birthday party and for some of us, a dip in the ocean.

 This is what I'm wearing today- Hope tank and shorts, Acne belt, Karen Walker sunglasses, Shofolk sandals and Loft canvas bag. I only wear shorts when it's too warm for anything else, and today is one of those days.
