NEXT STOP: SCANDINAVIA



GANNI T-SHIRT (tank here) / GANNI DUNGAREES / CELINE SUNNIES / TONY BIANCO SHOES / CARAVELLE WATCH / MONIER FRERES BRACELET

As these words are being typed, I'm on what I'd like to call a charming bumpy train. Destination? Denmark. The sound of tracks and passing trains have been intensified by the open windows, necessary as UK has been turning on the heat and therefor making my summer holiday playlist a vague background noise (yes, I have one of those, and yes, it hasn't been updated since 2010).

In celebration of the fact, that I'll be spending the next two weeks in beautiful Denmark, I've jumped into summer styles from a Scandi favourite of mine, GANNI. Effortless Danish design at its best, and lead by a really cool team that I had the pleasure of meeting here in London. Now, my wobbly suitcase has both the fruity t-shirt and the practical suede dungarees nicely folded, and I expect as much fun wearing them in Denmark as I did in Notting Hill earlier this week.

THE CAPTAINS HOUSE


PIXIE MARKET DRESS / CARAVELLE WATCH

Summertime if any time is a time to fully rest and recharge all exhausted cells and replace any remains of stress with long sunshine hours and strawberries and cream. Now, I've been cashing in on the last one especially, and although I might have exceeded the quota of what's humanly healthy, I do feel, that I can blame the late arrival of summer temperatures to excuse my excessive intake of summery desserts. 

To those who have been following on the SnapChat (same username as on Instagram: @srhmikaela), you will have seen my wonderful trip together with my friends from Next to The Captain's House on Osea Island. A place you can only access when the tide is out - twice a day! Now, my body has a complete natural reaction to isolation from the world, which is stocking up on food, juuust in case the tide never comes out again and I'd have to spend the rest of my days on this South Eastern idyllic space which is Osea.



HAVE A GREAT START TO YOUR WEEK

THE MIDWEEKENDER



KEEPSAKE TOP / REISS CULOTTES / ANDOTHERSTORIES FLATS / CELINE SUNGLASSES / ASOS NECKLACE

Summer is slowly appearing here in London (read: subject can now finally leave home without a jacket) - and this of course calls for all sorts of activities, that we would have done anyway.. but it would've just been colder.. Ice cream eating and iced coffee slurping has increased about 72% on a weekly basis, meaning you will now find me with chocolate around my mouth 7 days a week! I really feel like top designers could take on this as a high-end beauty trend. We've had the Galliano beard, the McQueen lip and the Westwood eyes, I really feel like Belgian chocolate ice-cream mouth is the next big thing. Catch it whilst it's still young, guys!

HOPE YOU'RE HAVING A FANTASTIC WEEK

THE SUMMER SHOP

Illustration by Meredith Watt for Framboise Fashion

Summer time, and although my birthday is well out of sight (FF's Meredith, who did this cool illustration for this post has her birthday on Sunday, lucky bee!) and Christmas even further away, the fact that the sun is shining - or could shine at any given moment - should be reason enough for a bit of online shopping frenzy, right?

Check out our selection of shop-able summer goodies after the jump! 

HAVE AN AWESOME DAY

A SCENT OF REGENT STREET


FRENCH CONNECTION RAIN COAT / STRADIVARIUS TOP / REPLAY JEANS / CARAVELLE WATCH / OFFICE BOOTS

Oh British summers. The smell of flowers, the outdoor picnics, birds singing... and of course the rain.. Having had my base here for two years now, I have had to come to the acknowledgement, that if I based my plans on the weather, I would never get anything done. That said, my best, most fun times here in London have been in company with, guess what? The rain! However, to anyone who will make their way past London this summer, let me calm you down and state, that I believe we must have had our quota of rain for this patch.. *knock on wood*..

Rainy or not, a place that always tickles my fancy when it comes to a day of shopping is Regent Street. Lined up with favourite retailers such as Reiss, &otherstories, COS and Zara, it also has a select range of niche stores ranging from royal perfumerie Penhaligon's London, where some scents are created in store to a festival and London favourite of mine, Hunter's flagship store, where I stock up on rain-proof gear. Now London is always gives you just enough moments without rain to get from store to store until it pours down, but a perfect place to watch it from is Hotel Café Royal, where we had macaroons and brunch.

On the particular day Meredith (new to FF, woo!) and I went, Regent Street was having one of it's many celebrations - this one for Magnum, why the street had been decorated with flowers, performing acts and of course free ice cream all day! Now, there's never a bad day for ice cream or matching macaroons, so bring on the summer weather, whatever it may be.

HOPE YOU'VE HAD A LOVELY WEEKEND
