AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER OF A WEEK

Hello Sunday!

This week was emotionally hard. In the beginning of the week I hit a fairly bad low, which got to the point that it was close that I couldn’t get out of bed. Or meet people. Or, eat. Even replying to messages felt like an enormous challenge. It caught me by surprise, and I phoned confused, crying filled calls to mum. I’ve been feeling very low before, and I was quite afraid to end up back there again. But towards the weekend I got better, and back to my usual self. Apparently just an unforeseen glitch.

The weekend was wonderful. I decided that even though I’m buried in schoolwork up to my neck, I will shut it off for two days. Just to keep myself sane. And so I did! On both Friday and Saturday evening I managed to meet some old friends I haven’t seen in ages. ”Adult friendship is two people saying ”I haven’t seen you in forever, we should really meet” until one of you dies” – but not this time! On Saturday I travelled to Drottningholm for a magical Christmas market. Or, it would’ve been magical, if the transport would’ve worked! We walked on a roadside for 2km just to get there, and froze in a bus stop for half an hour with thousand others on the way back. But what a beautiful place!

Do you guys recognize the coat? It’s the same as I’ve had in a couple of earlier posts, just the other side up. The black turtleneck which was on my wish list I found from H&M men’s department! A good shopping hack is always to check the guys  side for basics. For some reason it seems that their products are often made of better material, this one being for instance 100% merino wool!

Hopefully everyone has been enjoying their weekend. Best of luck for Monday!

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

ACNE STUDIOS VELOCITE

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.
