Paper Doll



So I have like, 9000 outfits to show you. Or 3 –  same thing.

How are you all?! I hope you’re having a very fine day. 🙂 I certainly, certainly am! This week is flying by like lightning speed, I’ve been crazy busy (we’re printing a new textbook at work, so it’s been go-go-go), and next week…



(Hey, on the topic of pumpkins, did you know the Pumpkin Spice drinks debut next Tuesday at Starbucks?! Not like I’m counting down the days or anything?)

But yes! I am going to see the Smashing Pumpkins on Monday, in Oakland. I can’t believe it is almost here. My next blog post will be all about the concert. My heart is full!!! ♥




This was my Monday outfit. Or my måndag outfit. (Yes, I am going to be Swedish-dropping some words on y’all throughout this post, as I have been up to my kneecaps in Swedish lessons on Duolingo this past week.)


I have been practicing so much Swedish, that the other night I woke up in the middle of the night and randomly mumbled out the word strumpor (which means socks)…


Like the candy-esque outfit? I like to start my Mondays on an upbeat note to launch the week off to a good start. That means an iced mocha (or if I want to make it an extra special Monday, a raspberry iced mocha) at Yellow Mug, a super cute outfit and Viking metal playing in the car.

Do you have a favorite day of the week? Or days? My favorite days are Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I just really like those days. ♥

Mina favorit dagar är torsdag, fredag, lördag och söndag.


The pattern-mixing continuous! I wore this outfit on Sunday, I think. Gingham anything is awesome, but I’m really loving the bold black-and-white gingham print. ♥ I bought it on sale at Forever 21 recently.

(Every skirt I am wearing in this post is a recent purchase from Forever 21, by the way!)




New choker! I bought it on Etsy not too long ago. 😉



Hallå, sun. It has been in the 90’s here! Which is my preferred temperature of choice, as opposed to over 100 degrees it has been for weeks on end.




Last but certainly not least, this is the outfit I wore today!!! This is my first denim skirt purchase, and I lucked out on this find! I have another one in pale green, which I’ll wear sometime soon.

I’m sure you recognize my shirt, which I have worn many times with the familiar fåglar on it. (Birds!)



Me eating fruit on my break at work, and finding it to be a good time to take a close-up of my new denim skirt. 




I know this may not seem like a huge deal…oh, but it is.

For a long time, I have wanted to wander into this place, that opened maybe a year or so ago where I live. I heard it’s filled with pretty things like stationary, writing utensils, planners, wrapping paper, gift boxes, coffee mugs, and otherwise colorful things that are collectively a vortex I knew I would easily get sucked into.

I walked in, unprepared for what I was faced with. FRUIT SCENTED GEL PENS? Hellooo, nostalgia! A set of super bright writing cards with matching envelopes, and a bright pink ink pen? Yes, please!

I have two pen pals: one I email, and the other I write traditional letters to, so I am definitely going to come back to this place in the future for more pretty stationary! ♥


And what a week it’s been! ‘Til next time!

  1. I love the new skirts, especially the colorful striped one. It looks great with the horizontal striped pastel top! I know just what you mean about starting the week on an up note with a super cute outfit. If you look good, you feel good! And yeah, there’s a certain magical anticipation on Thursdays. The husband recently sent me a bitmoji referring to Thurs that said Friday Jr, and I thought, yep, that describes it perfectly. Great score on the scented gel pens! And just in time for back to school, LOL.


  2. I love that you are learning Swedish, good for you! As always a wonderful, colorful post! Love the pens, I would get sucked in to a store like like as well!
