FIRST DAY IN SWEDEN

well, stockholm is just like everything i had dreamed it up to be in my head for so long. luckily, i was able to sleep on the plane ride over here so we had a full day of exploring today. we arrived at our apartment in södermalm early this morning…

i’ve been practicing taking more photos on my canon 7D and not just relying on my iphone all the time. this space made that quite easy though. white TAKEOVER. floors, bedding, walls, cabinets…. i couldn’t be more happy.

of course there are colorful accents throughout the space that stand out right away…and how about that awesome black smeg fridge!

don’t get me wrong, i love sleeping next to my guy. but i gotta say, i am very excited to spreeeeead out in this bed all to myself.

and how about this pink velvet chair in my bedroom? obsessed.

stockholm selfies and our really adorable balcony that i want to have brunch on.

i love the black tile in the bathroom! and check out this relaxing sitting room full of light…

we walked all around today…this place reminds me a lot of when we visited berlin actually (see here!) i promise more updates on stores and my favorite stops in my next sweden post. this gal is jet lagged and needs to hit the hay.

look how charming this little caramel shop is! you can peek through the windows and watch the girls in their striped shirts making tons and tons of caramels…and then of course you buy them.

the shopping here really is ridiculous. so many amazing shops with beautiful tailored items. i have to show some serious restraint over here.

i will still be stopping in on the blog to post, but you can follow along with the sweden & italy adventures on my instagram here if you’d like! i can’t wait to wake up and explore more tomorrow. thanks for snapping this pic of us below, victoria!

    Visit Urban Deli in Södermalm!! Amazing food with a bit of a dean and delucca vibe 🙂 if you get a chance to break away from all the shopping (so tough) I recommend making a stop at Midsomarkransen on the redline. It’s scenic and a short walk will take you to breathtaking views of the water. Also amazing vintage shops in this area. Can’t wait to see more photos!

    Alessandra says:

    shar says:

    can you tell me where you got that beautiful thick knit scarf you’re wearing in the bottom picture? i’ve been looking for one forever and that one looks so cozy!

    Katrina says:

    You are so lucky to be in the most amazing city in the entire world!!! I was fortunate enough to live in Stockholm as a student for a few months last year and I would give anything to move back.

    I know your days must be packed full, but if you have the time, take a walk up Drottninggatan starting from T-Centralen up towards Odengaten. You’ll pass amazing restaurants and shops along the way (Weekday and Beyond Retro!!) and when you reach the top of the hill, you will have the most breathtaking view in all of Stockholm! The place is called Observatorielunden and it rests on top of the stadsbiblioteket, which is also incredible inside.

    For another unforgettable view of the city, check out the bar and restaurant inside of Södra Teatern in Södermalm. There are panoramic windows!

    Trevlig helg!
