OUTFIT OF THE DAY – MID SKIRT MANIA

Coat/Hafnium Copenhagen, Boots & Skirt/Zara, Knit/Line Of Oslo, Bag/Saint Laurent

Afternoon!

One of the most popular items of the season has been the mid-length skirt, and my wardrobe doesn’t make an exception. It’s the one piece which can be combined nearly with anything: knits, festive tops, sneakers, ankle- or thigh high boots, turtlenecks…! Effortless and chic. For a shorty like me (165cm) it’s important to have the skirt well cut in order to avoid looking like a hobbit. A little slit in the front adds to the length nicely.

Yesterday was my first official day off since what feels like forever. We ended up touring boutiques and cafés with a girl friend, and finally ended up to Riche for meatballs. We even had a furry tail-wiggling friend with us! Stockholm seems to be rather dog friendly with it’s restaurants and bars. As it began raining while we were dining, us comfort-zoners decided to stay for drinks afterwards in order to wait it out. How I’ve missed careless being without the underlying stress – even just one day in between courses makes wonders. I’ve been taking a really long walk every evening now in order to maintain my physical and mental health. It felt a little bad missing it yesterday, but today is a new evening.

This weekend stands for the opening of plenty of Christmas markets around Stockholm, as well as the first Advent. Lots of fun things scheduled for Saturday and Sunday! Including some presents shopping, mulled wine, ginger bread, candles and meeting friends. My new course began today, and our first papers need be returned by Tuesday. But as Christmas is getting closer, having the holidays in mind undermines whatever stress. Tis the season!

Wishing all a good Friday,

Hertta

WHY BLACK FRIDAY IS SO DANGEROUS

Moodboarding / @Balenciaga, @Celine, @Gildaambrosio, @moldavia

Hi!

The month’s, or perhaps even season’s, largest shopping-palooza is finally over. Black Friday, or Black Week, combined with something I recently found out called ”Cyber Monday” (Seriously, who comes up with these names?) has grown to nearly biblical measures under the recent years. Connecting to Thanksgiving in the States, what is even Black Friday for us? A great opportunity to create needs for items no one actually needs, it seems.

As a 20year millennial, I’m amongst one of the largest target groups of the advertisers. This Black Friday, I didn’t buy anything. But heck, would I have liked to. It’s scary how all the advertisement gets to one. From first being totally oblivious that one might need something new, suddenly craving to type the digits of my visa to myriad of web shops. All and everything started to feel tempting, luring, with sales tags on and the light, buzzy atmosphere. My old clothes, in my thoughts, lost their spark, their beauty, and started to feel dusty and worn; replaceable. New is always better.

As it’s obvious that this is an ongoing phenomena, sales-shopping should be encountered with light caution. Always always keep in mind what you actually need and came after, instead of what you want in the moment. Make lists. I do! Right now on my list of things to get is for example a basic black turtleneck sweater, and black leather military boots. If they’ll be on sale, I’ll be over the moon. So it’s not just a bad thing to get a little crazy with the sales shopping, just something to think about. Keeping one’s eyes in the price may result in some successful savings in sales!

ACNE STUDIOS VELOCITE

Coat/Acne Studios, Dress/Chloe, Bag/Celine, Boots/Stuart Weitzman

 

Good Morning Saturday!

Eat-Sleep-Read-Repeat. A couple of days ago when it snowed, my friend Katriina hit me up quickly to go shooting in the winter wonderland. Wonderland. We had both totally forgotten that in the city, snow means grey slush.

But never mind, here are some results! The Acne coat has now been a bulletproof go-to jacket for two winters straight. Hard to go wrong with it. Plus it’s actually very warm, especially with all the buttons and zippers closed – a process which takes a good while, beauty > practicality in this case. Something that one can’t see from the outside, is that the coat is also rather heavy. My estimation is at least 5kg? Going around town in it means good cardio.

Off to the library, where Saturday and Sunday will be spent in. I’ll be so relieved on Monday, after the worst (Economic thought’s history) is over! It’s been one of those weeks where you just push yourself up the bed and through the days without further thinking. Just keeping on moving. I know that if I stand still now, I’ll probably be sleeping for days straight.
