Stockholm City Guide

STOCKHOLMDIARY

Hi peepz! I’ve been to Stockholm for 5 days during Midsummer with my dad. Visiting Stockholm was always on my wish-list. I’m always inspired by the minimalistic fashion and interior style, because it is a cool mix of old and new materials. I had a Swedish classmate in Paris and she told me that the ‘hipster’ Scandinavian style of restaurants and shops is normal for her because it is everywhere in Stockholm. What I really liked about Stockholm is the mix of urban and nature. It is not as busy as Paris or Amsterdam but still a great vibe. I took so many pictures during this trip trip, I would like to share them with you. See the links below. Enjoy and get inspired for a new citytrip!

Rosendals Trädgård is my favorite place in Stockholm. It’s an urban garden where you can walk around and see, taste en shop the products. They’ve got so many homemade sweets, drinks and a restaurant in a greenhouse. I tried a delicious carrot cake, blueberry cake and cinnamon roll with my dad. A must see when you go to Stockholm and the sun is shining!

THE CULOTTE

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The word culotte in French actually means ‘underpants’, is really en tendence for this summer. So when I told a French guy ‘I bought a super nice culotte at Zara’ he said; ok, uhh that’s nice to know, useful information (not). Then I told him it’s a type of pants and then he understood what I was talking about. So strange why they call it like that, you can make a huge mistake when you’re on a shopping tour in Paris haha!CULOTTE-SHOPPING

ANNA + NINA

One of my new favorite stores in Amsterdam is ANNA + NINA. I haven’t been in Amsterdam for a year (yes, shame on me) so I was really excited to visit one of their stores. I took some photos of the one which is located on the Gerard Doustraat in the neighborhood ‘De Pijp’. They sell so many cute and cool stuff like jewelry, interior accessories and clothes. Everything is special and unique! The way they decorated the store is really inspiring, so take a look when you’re around!

SUMMER, YES PLEASE!

This summer there is one item which is essential in your closet: the off-shoulder top. Most brands sell it in the cutest colors and patterns, my favorite one is this one from Zara. It is easy to combine with white and silver, my 3 favorite colors! And.. it is sexy but chic! So grab your bankcard and spend your last money on this cool item!

CHATEAU CHAMBORD

Something else than Paris, fashion or hotspots. A couple of weeks ago, I took some pictures of Château Chambord, the biggest château of the Loire Valley. During easter weekend I visited this castle with my parents.  I’ve seen it 4 times before when we drove to the west coast of France for family holidays. Every time i’m impressed by the beauty and splendor of this castle. It is so big and overwhelming. I had to share these pictures with you because the château is famous and impressive, really worth a visit!

BARBIE EXPOSITION

What if the most popular and iconic fashionista of all times visits the fashion capital of the world? Right, Paris creates a huge exposition in Musée Des Arts Décoratifs. My niece and I visited the Barbie exposition. It brought back good memories of our childhood because we used to play with the barbies together. We had so much fun that day at the expo, throwback time! During the exposition I discovered that Barbie is not just a toy, she has mirrored a culture evolution. She has adopted all the new dreams and ambitions of contemporary life. When you see the exposition you can clearly see a fashion timeline from the beginning till now. That’s why it's so interesting. It’s not only about a pretty blond doll with her perfect prince charming (Ken). Besides the 700 Barbie dolls, you can also see the work by artists, photos, video and magazines that contextualize the life of Barbie for example Vogue and the Barbie collection of Moschino. Any Barbie addict should follow Barbies Instagram account (yes she's got one!). It is really cool to follow, especially around fashion week. I’m wondering who makes all the photos of her fabulous outfits on location!
