Swedish Summer Lookbook

Oh, lovely Swedish summer! Jonas & I had a wonderful 6 weeks visiting family, friends, and familiar places…plus a few new magical ones! I thought it’d be fun to do a Swedish summer lookbook of some of my favorite outfits I wore on the trip at some pretty epic locations! Hope you enjoy watching and coming along for the fashion adventures!

{MIDSUMMER} We spent midsummer’s eve at a charming open air museum full of the cutest old red farm houses. “Midsommar” is a celebration of the summer solstice and of light, everyone wears flowers in their hair and dances ’round the maypole!

OUTFIT DETAILS: White Flower Crown-DIY // Green Embroidered Dress-Ross // Black Flats-Payless

{BOOK CAFE} It seems to be our midsummer day tradition to go for a “fika” at one of our favorite summer cafes; it’s full of books and delicious treats and of course the cutest exterior.

This thrifted dress for 5 bux is my new fav, it even has pockets! I wore it so many times this summer already, it was perfect for exploring the secret garden at Nynäs Slott.

{CHRISTMAS IN JULY} Ok, technically this was in June and technically the charming town of Gränna has candy canes all year ’round…but when I found this dress at Goodwill I knew it’d be perfect for visiting the red & white striped town!

{ERICSBERGS SLOTT} This palace in Sweden took my breath away! I had always wanted to see it and it sure is grand…I actually felt intimated standing in front of it!

{NORDIC MERMAID} I spent a lot of time this summer hopping across rocks on the Swedish archipelago in search of nordic mermaids and selkies!

I’m also obsessed with Faerie Magazine and this summer issue about mermaids and sea serpents takes me into a magical underwater world!

{MEDIEVAL FAIRE} I just adore viking faires in Sweden, especially when the market is set around a medieval castle like Torpa Stenhus. I had fun wearing my goth medieval inspired outfit again.
