Summer is getting closer!

So it's that time of year again. You know, the time when I start raving and ranting about how I love maxi dresses.... summer! And can you believe that Missoni, one of my all time favorite brands, has made some awesome dresses for this season?

Just look at this beauty!

Great cut, great pattern and great colors. What more can you ask for?

PS: Please don't hate me, but I am actually cheating and going on my first beach holiday in two weeks to kickstart spring and summer. I'm not sure it will be warm enough to go into the water (I am going to a Mediterranean island, after all) but it will definitely be warm enough for maxi dresses! Awesome!

Lady in white

I've honestly never been a big fan of white clothing. It stains easily and I am a rather clumsy person by nature, so I have always been scared of spilling things on white clothing that I have had in the past. But now... I totally love all the white clothing coming out.

I am not sure if it is because I have been looking for wedding dresses (which, obviously are white) so much lately, or if white has always been superchic without me noticing.

I still haven't purchased any new white clothing, save for the actual wedding dress, but I am seriously considering it!

Today I'm loving...

... these Make Way heels. What a fun way to spice up a pair of black heels!

On a wedding related note (as some of you may remember, I am getting married in May), I have finally found THE dress, so now I am looking for my wedding shoes. So there might be some more shoerelated posts coming up further on.

Could these be for me?

I have owned maybe 2 pairs of pants that had patterns during my life. I am a bit of a risk taker when it comes to fashion, and I have been even more so in the past, but when it comes to patterned pants, I have always stayed away. It just doesn't feel like "me", more like something really outrageous people and models would wear.

But I have to say that Isabel Marant makes even these patterned red pants look cool.

But I still don't know... These pants look cool in pics, but would they really look cool on me as well? It's so hard to tell!

Today I'm loving...

... these adorable Miu Miu flats. They remind me of candy canes and other yummy things. Gotta love that!

On a serious note

I don't know how much attention the case of Nadia Plesner has gotten in other countries, but in my native Sweden, her being sued by Louis Vuitton because she made an art piece with the intent of making money to donate to Darfur, one of the poorest regions in the world, has made big headlines.

And since I think it is so wrong that Louis Vuitton goes against the trend of charity and charity collections that we have seen in the case of many other fashion houses, I would like to draw some attention to this as well. After all, something similar to their products being used in an art piece, hardly harms them in any way. An artist is not the same thing as a competitor in the same field as them, so I do not see the need to sue someone who just wants to help others.

Read more about the case here and here and here.

Today I'm loving...

Blake Lively's promotional pics for Chanel. I love it that she is the face of the handbags now, I think Blake and Chanel go really well together!

Today I'm thrilled...

... that Missoni seems to have cooperated with Havaianas. I love both Missoni and Havaianas and the look of both brands combined is really cool. Just look at these pics:

Today I'm loving...

Gisele's April 2011 cover of Vogue. She looks stunning, and maybe it's because I am currently looking for a wedding dress, but I am absolutely obsessed with white lace these days.

Happy weekend everyone!

Today I'm loving...

... this navy blue Erdem lace maxi skirt, really gorgeous! Isn't it interesting that Erdem, a brand I actually do not own a single piece by, has quickly become one of my favorite brands in the last year or so? I really should get around to getting some Erdem pieces!

Random thought of the day

Doesn't the H&M Conscious Collection resemble the Chloe collection with the scalloped hems quite a lot? Not that that is a bad thing, not at all!
But still rather interesting to see such a huge resemblance!

Today I'm loving...

Monique Lhuillier. She is truly a genius. Just take a look at her Fall 2011 collection, and you will see what I mean!
