The last few hours of 2010 are upon us. As it winds to a close it feels as if we are hovering in a state of twilight. Christmas is over, it ended with a torrential thud, and the holiday season is almost entirely behind us. With the new year will come a fresh pile of resolutions. Mine is currently so long it reaches down to my toes. As I sit on the sofa gobbling up ham sandwiches and Swedish sour sweets I mumble about how I will join the gym upon arriving home… but the words are muffled by the shoveling movement of my hands. Ah well, such is the charm of lists… they are just as easily made as they are thrown away. I hope everyone looks back on 2010 with a sense of happiness and appreciation. It’s been a great year in my books and I’m looking on with great anticipation for the new one that lies just ahead. Wishing everyone a joyful new year!
p.s. I will join the gym.
Rethink the sheath dress and the shell. Don’t overlook a straight jacket or a pair of well cut trousers. The daily uniform never looked this good. Forget what your mom told you and mix black, navy and white. Arm yourself in sturdy multifunctional basics to fight against the daily grind. Lim’s girls are warriors of the modern kind.
It’s the colour that will take you perfectly from summer into fall – when days start getting shorter and tans start to fade. Wear it on its own to begin with and then layer soft greys overtop when the pale skin starts peeking out. To make a real statement, don’t be shy, pile it on head to toe.
Raid your nan’s closet and pile on your Sunday best. Then bring it back down to earth by throwing on some chunky black shoes and your most hard core biker jacket. A palette that rivals the feint blush of young love with moon-landing florals to boot. It’s achingly feminine, slightly tongue in cheek, and reminds me a bit of what Blaire Waldorf might wear on a safari in Spring. Whatever you call it, I’ll be adopting the look long before ‘pre-fall’ time creeps around.
Please note: I want to be a Lim lady.
The whiteness is almost blinding. I busted out my new Retro Super Future sunglasses today to help shade my eyes from the snow… even though the sun is barely making it over the horizon. Okay okay, who am I kidding, I just wanted to wear them.
Venturing out to gaze across the frozen lake by my husband’s family home in Sweden requires serious reinforcements. Only a short walk away, but I stashed sweets and a thermos full of hot chocolate into my bag. Don’t worry, I wasn’t crazy enough to wade through the snow and minus 10 degree weather in just this little dress. I’ve adopted a massive puffy jacket that makes me resemble the Michelin Man that I wear whenever I step outside. It’s so big I can hardly lower my arms to my side but at least it works to cushion the fall when I slide and topple over in the snow.
The Mulberry for Target giveaway has officially ended and a winner has been chosen at random. Thanks to all that entered! Hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas. I ventured out today to check out the sales and picked up two dresses from the Swedish shop Monki. Everywhere was crammed with people and the abundance of massive puffy coats made it even more difficult than normal to navigate the rails. I’m planning a little photo shoot out by a frozen lake tomorrow. Stay tuned for the result…
