New top from Ellos.se! It's a simple, white top with that "back-effect" I love so much! I adore the pretty, crochet pattern and that it goes all the way from the back, to the tip of the shoulders so that you can see a bit of the crochet at front as well =) I really loved it and I'm considering another color, just can't decide on which one yet ?
I've rediscovered my love for flared jeans and pants lately. They are the perfect key-piece for all of you that want to chanel the 70's boho-luxe vibe. Pair it with a flowy tunic and a belt or a top and fringe vest. High heels, fringe bag and a flopy hat will complete the boho-chic look!
September is coming to an end and october is slowly creeping in...the crisp air, chilly days and cold nights..they are here. This means I have to put aside the playful dresses and flowy skirts, cropped tops and short shorts...Time to think about layering, cosy and warm sweaters and cool pants. It's the only way to survive the cold winters we have here in Sweden ;)
I've mentioned several times before of how I love incorporating my summer wardrobe with my autumn wardrobe and on the photos above you can see how I've done it last year. I've chosen four photos from last october to use as inspiration for this year's autumn styling - hope you get inspired as well! =)
Crisp whites and creams, crochet, denim on denim, layering cardigans, chunky sweaters, native prints and patchwork are some of the key-styling tips I will use when building my autumn/winter wardrobe for this year as well! These are the perfect details for getting that boho/hippie chic feel even during the colder days!
Found this pair of flares at the beginning of the summer, but have forgotten about them since they've been left behind in the closet. Now, as fall has arrived,bringing the chilly and windy days, they are going to be perfect, paired with a poncho, a hat and a pair of boots, for the perfect 70's boho-chic vibe...don't you think?
They have the perfect fit and just the right flare...signed Rebecca Stella for Nelly.com!

Another week passes and this one ends by us celebrating the fall equinox. Summer has really tried to elongate it's stay by fighting the rain with a couple of sunny days, but even those are counting down. Here is a sum up of my week through my Instagram-lens.
Don't miss out on my Instagram updates, follow me there @ivannascloset.
Even though summer is at it's end, there are still some ways thath you can bring it with you when autumn arrives! Whether it's in form of styling summer pieces with warmer ones or, as I like to do it, make summer a part of my jewelry!
As I bought a lot of shells while in Greece this summer, I decided to make some of them a bit more "useful" than just them serving as decoration. I asked the b'friend to drill small holes into the shells, after that I've put small hoops through the holes and made them as pendants. One of them is already hanging on a thin golden chain, while the others are still waiting for me to find the perfect chain.
What do you think babes? You like it?
Stay tuned, because I'll show you another DIY soon where I've also used shells to make some jewelry!
These outfits are styled with pieces that you can find on my "Raid My Closet" - site, called shopivannascloset.blogg.se. There are more outfits like these and more pieces that I've never worn, just tried or worn once being sold there. There of course some pieces that are older or have been bought second hand.
The side is written in Swedish and the prises are in Swedish Kronor, but don't hesitate to contact me (email@example.com) if you are interested in a piece or two, but don't live in Sweden. I'm sure we will find a way to figure things out ;)
So, what are you waiting for ? ;) Check it out ---> here.
I got this lovely necklace as a present form my collegues at work after I'd stopped working there. It was such a sweet gesture and I love that they've noticed my style and know what I like. The small coins are a great match with the chain-fringe! You'll find it at Indiska.

Grey, gloomy and rainy weather has taken over and the only bright spots left are the golden leaves on the ground that are slowly dancing their way down from the trees. I'm not letting go of summer that easily and I'll try to mix and match my summer wardrobe with warmer clothes until I can. Here is one of the stylings I have in mind: a crochet dress (one summer staple), paired with a faux fur vest, a lot of jewelry and a pair of Isabel Marant - inspired booties. All in whites and creams, my favorite combination, as you might have guessed :) A perfect boho-chic outfit for the early autumn days.
Here are some detail snaps from some of my recent outfits! I'm a real jewelry fan and I consider myself a collector. It's like I have a small collection of tresures that I really care about and all the new additions are carefully chosen. My jewelry needs to be special, one of a kind and it has to make a statement.
I find that jewelry, wheter small or big, always makes a statement which is then presented to the rest in the way you wear and style it! Whenever I style an outfit, the jewelry is always chosen after some thought, since it needs to tell my story in the right way and "blend in" with the outfit to become one.
How about you babes? How do you wear your jewelry ?
Those of you who have been following my blog for a while know how much I love boots and I love wearing them no matter what season! I've made similar posts to this one before, where you could see more of my boots (here and here), but these are the latest addition to my boot-collection!
Yes, it's all about flares, or as I like to call them "bell-bottoms" lately! I bought this deep blue, velvet textile last winter while in Macedonia. The thought was to sew a pair of bell-bottoms, but since I didn't have time to do it then, I got them made this summer! So here they are, my custom-made, velvet flares! Love them so much, they have the perfect flow and "bell" and I can't wait to show them to you in an outfit =)

" Ah, summer, what power you have, to make us suffer and like it !"

I'm a real summer child! I love summer and everything that comes with it. The long days and the long nights that turn into days, the delicious fruits, the road trips and vacations, being wild and free...and the heat...Ah, the heat - I love warm weather! I've always said that I'd rather have extreme heat than extreme cold...rather have less clothes than layers of clothes on me, haha.
The crisp air is slowly creeping in on us, here in Sweden and I can feel the last breath of summer slowly fading away.
The boots I ware (and love) the most at the moment are these cowboy-inspired ones from Bubbleroom.se! Unfortunately, all the outfits I've worn them in, never found their on a photo, but trust me there were many. On the other hand, I managed to put together several flat-layouts wish outfits like this one here. I got them as a present from the b'friend on our 8-year anniversary! He knows me so well!
A bag is a very practical and needed accessorie. We girls like to keep all our necessities ( a bunch of stuff you "might" need) at one place when we go out. The bag is also the accessorie that fulfills your outfit, just like your shoes. The right bag can make your outfit shine and others can weigh you down.
You can see some of my other bags here, and as you can notice I'm going more for the crossbody bags...wether they are printed, fringed or both - but they have to stand out. I love clutches, but wear them on rare occasions, only when I need my wallet, phone and lip-balm, otherwise it's the bags with more space that come to use.
So, tell me, what kind of bags do you like to wear guys?

August was a month filled with sunshine, good food and drinks, time spent with great people. We did a trip to Bansko, Bulgaria; visited the montains there and then went to a completely spontaneous roadtrip to Ohrid, at the lake!
Celebrated my 24th birthday at our summerhouse and two day later sat on the plane back to Sweden. It's 1st of September now and I really miss the sunshine and the warmth in Macedonia, but I have so much sunshine in my heart after an unforgettable summer, I think it should hold me thorughout the winter as well :)
