Sunny London day

HI GUYS! THIS was such a beautiful day in London. My boyfriend, like most people, have the belief that it is always raining in London. It does rain a lot but the weather here compared to Sweden is like 10 times better. Because it is much warmer here. And I love this picture it looks happy, haha.

HEJ FINA! DEN här dagen i London var så himla fin. Min pojkvän, som många andra, har uppfattningen att det alltid regnar i London. Det gör det faktiskt inte! Det regnar ganska mycket men brukar också spricka upp under dagen. Inte ofta det regnar en hel dag. Och jämfört med Sverige är vädret så mycket bättre och mycket varmare. Och jag gillar denna bilden på mig jag ser så glad ut!

How ever I am not happy with the shoes from Jeffrey Campbell I was wearing today. I bought them because I thought “OMG cute shoes that aren’t expensive”. But I seriously can’t walk in them. Like at all. I was wearing them when we had dinner at Sushi Samba and I almost fell after 1-2 drinks (NOTE almost fell) but still so embarrassing. I need to buy a new pair of black Louboutin Pigalles instead. I was thinking of buying a pair of Jimmy Choo’s but they did not look that well on actually. Pigalles look so so good on, and they are easy to walk in. Changed into them for dinner at Zuma for this nights dinner :P

En sak jag inte var glad över däremot var dessa skorna som jag har på mig idag från Jeffrey Campbell. Jag köpte dom för jag tänkte att “Oh nice, billiga skor som inte är så dyra”. Men jag kan helt ärligt inte gå i dom. Alltså inte alls. Jag hade på mig dom när vi hade middag på Sushi Samba och jag trillade nästan efter 1-2 drinkar (notera att jag NÄSTAN trillade) så himla pinsamt. Jag behöver köpa ett par nya svarta pigalles from CL istället. Jag tänkte köpa ett par från Jimmy Choo, men dom såg inte alls lika bra ut på foten. Pigalles är så himla snygga på! Så bytte om till dom inför våran middag på Zuma den här dagen :PIMG_5992 1

And this is how my Filippa K coat looks like when it’s open. I love it so much!

Och såhär ser min Filippa K jacka ut när den är öppen. Älskar den!

Another thing I love so much is my boyfriend! I always “test locations” I want to be shot in for my outfit pictures. So I always tell him to stand there so I can see how it looks in photos. He doesn’t seem to be enjoying it as much as I do :)

En annan sak jag älskar så mycket är min pojkvän. :) Jag testar alltid locations jag vill fota mina outfit bilder på. Så jag säger alltid at han ska stå där så att jag kan se hur det ser ut på bild. Han ser inte ut att tycka om det lika mycket som jag gör :) haha.

Notting Hill Guide

16:26 | October 7, 2014

LONDON IS A 
big city with a lot of exciting and interesting places to visit and see. So if you are there for a weekend only you really have to decide on what you want to do and see the most. Notting Hill is a super cute neighborhood and you should definitely go here if you are interested in experiencing the following things:

– If you’re interested in the history of the neighborhood and want to see and appreciate the beauty of the colorful houses/doors.
– London is a busy and loud city – Notting Hill has a more “village” feel  but yet very stylish. If you want to have a calm atmosphere when strolling around petit brand stores then this is the place for you. I would compare it with shopping in Cannes – only another type of atmosphere and style.
– If you like antique shopping for jewelry, tableware in silver, crystals, rugs, pillows and other quirky British decor things. You should visit the antique market on saturdays. They also have a lot of lovely interior and decor stores in this neighborhood.

But what kind of person aren’t interested in these things? So let’s start with the tips, shall we?

WHERE TO SHOP
The main street in Notting Hill is Westbourne Grove. Here you can find stores like Maje, Jigsaw, Joseph, Ralph Lauren, Helmut Lang etc. Don’t forget the parallel streets where you can find a small matches store and Diane von Furstenberg. Or just some cozy candle shopping at diptyque. But remember – you don’t come here for the shopping, you come here to shop in this neighborhood. They do have a lot of great shops though.

THE BEST ANTIQUES
Notting hill shopping is famous for 2 things: Vintage shopping and antique shopping. To me, there is a huge difference in good vintage shopping and things that are just a bunch of crap. If it’s like WGACA I love it but I personally don’t think the vintage shops in Notting Hill are very good. So it is not something that I would recommend. How ever, the antique shopping is fun for decor things and jewelry. The famous Portobello Road market has their antique day on Saturdays. So crowded though! The stores I recommend are open every day so if you aren’t interested in the market you can go visit them on a day when it’s less crowded.

My favorite stores on Portobello Road are Henry George that has Louis Vuitton trunks, cricket balls, rugby balls and over all a nice collection of cool things to put in your home. I bought some rugby balls because I am currently trying to collect different items from all over the world to include in my decor at home. :) The other store I highly recommend is Hirst Antiques. This is heaven for buying vintage jewelry from Chanel, Givenchy, Dior and so much more. You will not be disappointed!

WHERE TO EAT
Ottolenghi.
Serves salads and cupcakes. For the girl that rather save some room for dessert.

Perfect trendy place for lunch on the main shopping street in Notting Hill. I’m having their avocado crab salad in the picture and my boyfriend is having some fish and chips (euww)

Black outfits & red phone booths

KAN MAN HITTA en mer perfekt bakgrund än denna? London I love you! Saknar att ha detta som mitt hem nu mer än någonsin, men jag får åtminstone njuta av ett par dagar här nu. Och nyckeln till en bra res-garderob är svarta eleganta plagg. Älskar dessa flatsen och min nya kappa från Filippa K. Den är så himla fin öppen som stängd.

COULD YOU GET a more perfect scenery than this? Definitely hard to beat! Miss having this as my home, but I get to enjoy it for a couple of days now at least! And the key to having a good easy to wear traveling wardrobe is wearing a lot of black classic pieces. I love these Salvatore Ferragamo flats and this amazing coat by Filippa K. It’s so simple but yet perfect and it looks amazing open as well.

I am wearing:
Flats: SALVATORE FERRAGAMO (here)
Pants: ZARA (here)
Coat: FILIPPA K (here)
Sunglasses: GIVENCHY
Bag: RALPH LAUREN (here)

Antiques at portobello

FÖRSTA HELDAGEN I LONDON också regnade det så klart. Surprise surprice. Men bara man har ett paraply så är det lugnt. Eller outhärdligt. Det sprack i alla fall upp på eftermiddagen! Idag var vi bland annat i Notting Hill på antik marknaden på Portobello Road. Här är jag när jag går ut från min favorit butik där. Åh så många fina Louis Vuitton trunks. Want! Men jag var nöjd med att köpa lite fina rugby bollar till inredning. Så fina! Hela min outfit kommer i ett senare inlägg också ska ni få en massa London tips också! :)

FIRST FULL DAY in London. Guess what? It was raining. Surprise surprise! But as long as you have an umbrella you are fine. Sort off. I wanted to go to the Antique market at Portobello road in Notting Hill. Here I am stepping out from one of my favorite stores there. Louis Vuitton trunks. Oh I want them! But I was satisfied buying some pretty rugby balls for home decor. Full outfit coming soon. And London tips! :)

Lots of love, J

Me and my shoes

21:24 | March 11, 2013

I (kind of impulsively) decided that me and my shoes should move to Chelsea. So the last time I wrote here I was in this area to look at an apartment. And when I saw it I knew that there was no need to look at anything else. It is perfectly located just off Kings Road, relatively close to South Ken tube station. And it was available for me to get the keys and move in that saturday, so it was perfect. So on saturday I was at my friends Dan and Nicks housewarming party in east London and moved in here yesterday. Have been up since 7 this morning just washing my clothes, ironing them and hang them up in my closet. Tomorrow I am going to help Karro move in in her new home in Notting Hill. Everybody is moving now, haha.

My new white jersey sweats came today from Shopbop. So I have been wearing them today with my new 10 crosby Derek Lam top as an stay at home outfit while unpacking and get my clothes clean and fresh from being in suitcases for like 2 months. Was going crazy! But are feeling so happy now!
