Finally scoring the chance to present part two of an advertorial project I’m taking part in (see part one HERE) this time an outfit feature in beautiful Stockholm. I’ve visited this city twice now and the first time I really had no idea what to expect – other than obviously a city full of tall blonde people. Stockholm is such a grand city – with all the buildings truly embedded into the landscape, so massive and majestic – when you glance around at the vista across the river, you really get the feeling that Stockholm has remained unchanged for hundreds of years.

The Swedes are a people of high standards and great quality (and you will pay for it) so theres no shortage of fine restaurants and bars to visit. One of Stockholm’s most popular spot’s to dine is Sturehof with a really exciting ambience and exceptional quality seafood. Sweden is also famous for meatballs and one of the best places to try them out is Prinsen – I’m getting so hungry just thinking about it!

Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s ‘old town’ – and no trip would be complete without a visit strolling its narrow cobbled streets. It feels a little like a waltz back through time – and even though I never had the chance to do this, I’m sure a guided tour would prove most informative for any history buff’s out there. There’s loads of cafes and resturants and bars to hang around in – and plenty of shops with delicious sweet delights. A good spot to stuff your face.

If the weather is good then visit the beautiful Djurgården – an island in the middle of stockholm with a beautiful park, water front promenades and loads of historical monuments and buildings to check out. Great for a leisurely afternoon stroll with a friend and not to be missed if you have the time.

And now for my outfit! Wearing my favourite shirt – and another nod to my a colour thats become a staple in my wardrobe  – always great on blondes! Red! My style has become more and more feminine lately – even right now as I post this I’m wearing a spotted pencil skirt! So it’s headbands and heels here, bringing my usual go to classic ensemble that ladylike edge that I’m liking so much. Also featured – my good friend Carolina’s (Fashionsquad) collaboration with Cooee – this incredible silver necklace. A new treasure of mine!
