The Wedding

So it has been a really long time since we posted and I really hope we still have some of our old readers with us but it has been a crazy few months. I got married in July to the love of my life and it was by far the happiest day of my life and just the most perfect day in every possible way. Friends and family traveled from Australia, the US, the UK, Germany Denmark and from other parts of Sweden. Above is a sneak-peak of the big day.

We got married at Carlshällsgård, a fantastic location in Långholmen, Södermalm in Stockholm. My dress is from Theysken’s Theory and the groom’s suit is from J-Lindberg. All the flowers arrangements were created by the lovely Therese at Kaprifol (on Hornsgatan).

 

I hope you have all had a really lovely summer break (or winter if you are in the southern hemisphere).

Currently dreaming of…

roll back knot

Turtlenecks! This black one from Witchery with an open back is top of our list. Although, American Apparel has one here for the same price that is much more classic and practical (i.e. without a huge gaping part in the back…)

Which one to pick?

On our mind for February

Feb wishlistSo I have a been a little bit slow on the blog-posting front this month due to all the things that life has thrown me (including a new dog) so here is a slightly late wishlist for february. This month there is a stronger focus on essential wardrobe basics, which I can never get enough of. I have not started thinking about my wishlist for spring, so these items are items that I would love to wear and use now.

1. Delicate gold jewelry

I generally do not wear a whole lot of jewelry and often try to steer clear of gold as it can look a bit funny with my tan skin but I totally fell for these beautiful and delicate pieces designed by Lara Melchior for & other stories. 

2. The perfect minimal silk camisole

Every girl should have a great black or white camisole in their wardrobe. Looks great paired with jeans, or for a more dressed up look with a black loose-fitted blazer (what I wore for valentines dinner last night). My all time favourite camisole is from Tibi but I have found a beautiful budget option with lace details from Monki (this one looks prettier in real life, I promise).

3. A new scent

I have to admit that I am one of those girls who buys one type of perfume and uses it almost every other day (Chloé by Chloé, in my case). However, I am looking to change it up this month and I am contemplating Rose Noir by Byredo. Byredo also makes beautiful leather perfume cases which I am currently pining for.

4. The perfect black shoulder bag

Although I could probably carry my black tote bag around every day I am still on the quest for the perfect black shoulder bag for evenings and those occasions when you just dont need much with you… This one from COS is my curent favourite.

5. The perfect boyfriend jeans

Since I have been wearing tight fitting black jeans/pants almost every day this winter, I am really longing for a lighter more relaxed option. The best boyfriend jeans, in my opinion are POP from Acne Studios.

6.  Versatile black ankle boots

My acne pistols have seen better days so really need to buy a new pair of black boots. I am particularly picky when it comes to this because black ankle boots are my most worn staple so they have to be both versatile and comfortable. What do you guys think of these boots?

7. Grey cashmere scarf

I am a sucker for a cashmere scarf, so much so that I have probably over-worn my black cashmere scarf this winter. Desperately need this Grey canada scarf from ACNE but they are sold out in this colour!

What is your favourite item? and which items do you think I should get?

Home additions: linen and ladders

Investing in homewares can feel like a neverending job. Although it is difficult (and we are guilty of buying plenty of junk!) proper investment in just a few things will make all the difference to your home/room. Today we are dreaming of these french flax linen sheets and this accessories ladder. Although, not everything has to be expensive, these cushions are currently on sale for $19.95 (may have just purchased 2 of them…) and A Merry Mishap has a great post on a DIY ladder.

Surviving the rain

umbrella alamodesty

Sydney has been raining on and off for the past couple of days. Every time this happens I decide it is time to invest in some gumboots and then just as I am about to order them it is sunny again! Sadly, these are not in my size, but maybe you will have a smaller foot than me and be able to take advantage of this amazing listing on Studded Hearts for these Loeffler Randall black rain boots. Otherwise, there are always Hunters.

Update: ASOS is offering 20% off (only to Australia!) with the discount code ONYA20. Makes the Hunters quite a lot cheaper and even more tempting…
