A trip back in time


To take my mind off things I decided to make a weekend-visit to a museum. I love museums, but I´m the kind of visitor who likes to stroll through rather quickly and then something grabs my attention and I get stuck, when other visitors slowly moves through the entire place. So qeueing is not my cup of tea! I have noticed that fashion has been accepted in the museum-world, and right now there are three different exhibitions in Stockholm with fashion themes. But since I have been eyeing the one at Nordiska Museet for some time now, that´s the one I opted for.  It did´t hurt that it was vintage-themed either, you know me and vintage!

How will I survive a shopping-ban?


A week ago the city was having a taste of Spring! I took a long walk through the inner city and just enjoyed the light, the water and all the happy faces. We are a ceazy people that way, the minute the sun shines we go crazy. But it is a smart tactic – because just a few days later we had a bit of a snow blizzard, and parts of the country was snowed in. So you have to love what you get, right?

A proper January Muuuu


We haven´t had much of a winter in Stockholm this year. So far. But you always hold your breath as we enter January, because then the snow usually comes if not before. I took this photo Jan 8 and it was breathtakingly beautiful in the morning when I was going to work. It was´t really snow, just frost, but it was a warning that the weather is getting colder.

November rain


Monday started with a bang this week, the office closed and everyone switched rooms. All part of a re-organization of the kind new bosses love to stick their teeth in. I´m sure you get my point.

I was supposed to sit somewhere else but after a discussion I managed to wrestle into a room I used to have five years ago, next to the coffee-machine. That will be handy when boredom strikes and I need coffee, or just to get me through my workload that is just massive atm. This is my Monday outfit – all black!

My capsule wardrobe – moving on…

For those of you who are interested in my wardrobe I can only say – I´m messing around.

One day I want to skip navy as my base color number two, another I´m reconsidering vintage, and sometimes I look at minimalist-bloggers and wonder if it would be liberating to cut down to 15 pieces of clothing….

I even tried to imagine joining project 333 but realized it´s a step too far at this time in my life.

So I´m back to a capsule wardrobe, and I will shortly present what I´m considering to be my picks for the winter of 2017/18. You have to remember though, that Sweden is a country with four seasons and winters can be snowy and cold, or rainy and grey.

Last year winter came early. And walking on footpaths like this demands hardware-shoes. No swanky booty heels here.

So I´ve decided to try and put together a wardrobe for Sept 25 until Dec 25. That means I have to consider a two-day work conference with a dinner, a fourday-trip with work to Geneva, a rock concert, a theatre show and Christmas as well as my busy workdays.

As for shoes and coats I will leave them out of my equation. Simply because I can´t predict the weather and in September I may need a winter coat or a jeansjacket…

I will also leave accessories out. I know project 333 doesn’t but to me a wardrobe is just TOO boring without accessories. And to be honest, my hoop earrings and swanky necklaces may be a few, but I haven´t bought any new for years.

I will probably sell some stuff and give some stuff away, but mostly I intend to re-use my huge pile of clothes and so I have a buying- BAN until December 27. That will be interesting! See you soon!

A walk on the old side and a start on my capsule wardrobe

Having the Teenage Mutant Ninja at home (he´s actually sleeping on my living-room floor on a mattress) not only improves my diet and exercise habits, I also am forced to be a little bit social…

Today, Sunday we decided to take the bus down to the Old Town (Gamla Stan) to watch the tourists and also have a look in the Science Fiction Book Store.

Die schönen blauen…

You remember my color palette?


Here it is. As I´m taking the next step towards planning my wardrobe according to the vivienne-files I´m checking out my wardrobe as it is today. I´m not going to throw anything out right away, if I like it and its in line with the scheme – it´s staying. That goes for a lot of my dresses, and even a few dresses that are outside the box. Simply, I will not have to buy any new dresses for a while!
