When in Sweden, dress as the Swedes do

I can't quite believe my little European jaunt is already over! I landed back in Dubai in the early hours of this morning and, as always, it feels bittersweet to be home. I've started trawling through my hundreds of photos and organising blog posts to tell you all about my trip but, for now, I only have the energy for a simple outfit post... I'm sure you'll understand.

After landing in Stockholm early last Wednesday morning, my cousin and I spent the rest of the day wandering the streets of quirky Södermalm, and this is what I wore. This Zara skort has popped up on literally every fashion blog I follow (click here to see examples) and, seeing as I have a huge FOMO, I obviously had to have it too. I can understand why everyone loves it, though, as it's holds the perfect combination of minimum fuss, maximum style. Not to mention, my favourite Swedish blogger, Victoria Törnegren, wore it so well that I thought: "when in Sweden, dress as the Swedes do" (i.e. I'm obsessed with everything she wears!).

In fact, every item in this outfit was a staple during my holiday. I wore the jumper, boots and bag non-stop too, so I apologise if there's not a whole lot of variety in my looks but, hey, at least I'm good at packing light!

More Scandinavia instalments coming soon, stay tuned.

  1. I received this dress as a birthday gift from my parents and brother; they got the copper colored one. I fell in love with the dress as soon as I pulled it out of the packaging.
