" A combination of blue and a small amount of yellow, it fits in on the color scale between green and blue. It radiates the peace, calm and tranquility of blue and the balance and growth of green with the uplifting energy of yellow.This is a color that recharges our spirits during times of mental stress and tiredness, alleviating feelings of loneliness. You only have to focus on the color turquoise, whether on a wall or clothing and you feel instant calm and gentle invigoration, ready to face the world again! "

Summer has officially faded away. 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.
This one is for those hot, summer days, when you're out and about in the city, weather is shopping time, a coffee date with your friends or a picknick in the park! A flowy top that leaves the skin to breathe matched with high-waisted, denim shorts - my "go-to" item every summer! Some accessories, comfortable shoes, a bag and you are ready to go!
Every summer has a story they say, and I have but to agree! Even though I try to "spice it up" a bit, every summer cannot pass without live gigs and after parties with great people and music until dawn! Those are the nights that we continue the live gig long after it has officially ended! Aw! I look forward for nights that turn into days, even this summer! ;)
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear,
That the fervor and faith of a soul may be known,
To which time will but make thee more dear!
Oh the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close,
As the sunflower turns to her god when he sets
The same look which she turned when he rose!"
~ Thomas Moore
Sunflowers are my favorite flowers! Love how big and bright they are, how my face lites up whenever I see one, or a whole filed for that matter! =)
Here is some inspiration for the "the perfect summer outfit" for those of you who are drawn to the boho/hippie-inspired style! No matter if itt is shopping time with the girlfriends, a date night with your love or a stroll on the beach....you are ready to go...looking stunning!
The moment I saw this dress at Romwe.com I had this combination in mind! It's a perfect dress for that summer night, taking a walk on the dock or sipping wine and listening to good music...all in good friends!
Something I've added to my wardrobe through the last year or so is print! I've always find it eye-catching, cool and different, but never tried myself! Trust me, when you dare to take the next step, you feel so much lighter and happier afterwards. Print, especially native and tribal inspired, is something I believe in strongly for this summer! I, myself, will wear it in every way possible, tops, skirts, pants, bags....you name it...and here is how I'd style the printed skirt! =)
Posted this "flat layout outfit" last year in july (here), the post being titled "Summer Essentials". I'm posting it now again, since these ARE my summer essentials. Eventhough, I like wearing dresses, skirts, prints....my "go to" items, every summer is a pair of denim, cut-out shorts, a crop top (this is where the variation comes, but I prefer, white/black lace/crochet or a cool, printed top), pair of minnetonkas or other booties, a fringe bag and lots and lots of jewellery (as always ;)...
Inspired by Free People's latest catalogue (see here), I pulled together an outfit that I see myself wearing this summer. The dress is so flowy and light which makes it the perfect piece to wear while taking a walk on the beach, feeling the warm sand between my toes, the wind in my hair and the sound of the ocean! This all topped off with a Pina Colada in one hand and my love in the other!
It's time for the second weekend at Coachella and I really wish I was there! A festival in the middle of a California desert...doesn't get any better than that! =) Anyways...if I were there, this would be one of my looks! What do you think ?!?
I'm completely in love with my new, crochet bikini from Halens.se!!! Love the pattern and the decorative beads! I can just imagine how awesome it would look when Iäm tanned! Just adore the chockolaty brown! And then, you all know how easily I fall for the brown + white combination...which lead to this outfit post! =) Can't wait for a thay in the sun dressed just like this!
My favourite thing about summer are all the roadtrips we do! Love sitting in the car, having the windows down so that the wind sweeps through the hair, listen to our favourite album from Led Zeppelin and swallowing the highway to our next destination!
I'm so happy I found these lace pants at Riverisland.com a while ago! The perfect pants for a chilly afternoon and a walk on the beach or a cup of coffee in town with your bff's! Matchig lace with feathers, fringe and beads in colours screams boho-perfection and always scores in my world! What do you think ?!?
