outfits 2016: september to december.

hello tuesday! you guys are so sweet by the way, thanks for the love you keep giving every damn day.

on a different note, though, we’ve arrived at the last part of my outfit year 2016. this time, it’s mostly gonna be new york! see part 1 here and part 2 here.

september:

2

i traveled to lovely chicago! and looked like i mostly do, cheerleader-like, in the fila x uo skirt and white tank.

1

bought these awesome sunglasses at buffalo exchange in chicago.

4

this skirt is from there as well. i had been looking for one like this for a while!

3

and back in san francisco, i went to folsom street fair in dominatrix vibe, because, folsom.

october:

2

this was my last day in san francisco! i wore my vintage overalls, a new h&m coat and martens.

4

and then i moved to new york! hung out with jens in meatpacking in a new green thin jacket and choker.

1

i bought the black and white puma creepers.

3

and on halloween, i dressed up in a vampire top from h&m when me, robert and jay celebrated in bed-stuy at a weird party.

november:

1

in november, there was a marc jacobs sample sale in soho! so me and robert went, of course. i had been on the hunt for a new wallet and found this white/burgundy one.

2

i also got this top with me back home from the sale, as well as a cashmere scarf (and a beanie, but i sold it afterwards because it really wasn’t my style?).

3

i’ve mostly looked like this this past fall. skirt, hoodie from american apparel, leather jacket and sneakers.

4

and when i traveled to toronto i did lots of shopping. these vintage military-style boots was probably my best buy!

december:

1

one day in williamsburg, i dressed up in those boots again, dark green pants (end of 2016 literally changed my view on pants. who am i) and bomber jacket.

2

i wore a lot of black and was outfitting myself cold/warm in thiiiiin stockings and thick socks (still too cold though, i messed up).

3

i had a lot of jackets in new york, but still almost only wore my pleather one. luckily, it mostly wasn’t TOO cold. also, here’s the scarf from the marc jacobs sale as well. cashmere = warm <3

4

last outfit of the year! black lace top from forever21, and black everything else, mostly.

that was my year in clothes! let’s hope for 2017 to be as good if not better. ALTHOUGH it would be good for me not to consume too much *lol* ehe

 

mao

del tre av outfitåret 2016! mest i new york dårå. köpte puma-creepers och gick mest runt i svart, läderjacka och vintageboots och bomber och sånt. japp! 2017 here i come

moma masterpieces.

before i left new york, i went to the moma and took you guys with me through one photo every hour, but i didn’t really show you any artworks. i took pictures of some of them though, and thought i’d shar a few of them today. hopefully you like modern art as much as i do, and if not—come back tomorrow instead : )

i must say, though—i preferred sf moma to the new york one?? they’ve remodeled it for 3ish years though, so it’s awesome now. make sure to visit it if you’re in the neighborhood.
however, here are some gems from moma in new york:

moma.

i started from the top floor, and slowly worked my way down. ii’m not 100% sure (sorry!), but i think this one is from the painter francis picabia.

moma.

picabia was new to me, but i really LOVED some of his stuff—like this one. it reminded me a little bit of braque, but less cubist-like. the colors are so harmonious here, i think.

moma.

another one *being dj khaled*

moma.

more from picabia! as you can probably see, he reeeeaaaally changes direction in his way of painting. i’ve probably never seen a painter this diverse in their genres.

moma.

this series of picabia’s painting was probably the ones that spoke the most to me. i like the weird and a little creepy juxtaposition between the realistic portrait underneath the stylized face on top.

moma.

he also used some kind of technique on purpose to have some of the paint corrode (??? sorry definitely not using the correct vocabulary here), which makes the canvas turn out like this. VERY COOL.

moma.

this was the name of the francis picabia exhibition, by the way. i loved this quote, cause it’s so beautiful. but also makes so much sense, considering his wide range of genres.

moma.

moma has a helicopter hanging from the ceiling! not sure who or what it’s supposed to be, but i like it.

moma.

you all know this one, of course.

moma.

and maybe you’ve seen this as well? it’s by the pop artist jasper johns called flag.

moma.

i really like how you can see the textures on a canvas like this. it makes it so real, and i love coming close and studying it (until a guard says “STEP BACK PLEASE”) *rolleyes*

moma.

classic! dalí’s famous the persistence of memory hangs right here in moma new york. i’m not super into dalí, but his technique is mesmerizing nonetheless.

moma.

and also composition with red, yellow, and blue by piet mondrian. also not one of my top artists, but very iconic for its time.

moma.

this painter, faith ringgold, was new to me, but this painting named die really struck me. if you’re familiar with picasso’s guernica, this one feels very much like it—but instead of the spanish civil war, this one depicts the race war.

moma.

and, of course—my four babes (captured by richard avedon) were there waiting for me. <33

moma.

that’s all, folks! thank you moma. and also a big thank you and shoutout to my art teacher craig during my first semester at my master’s, who taught me so much about modern art with such an inspiring passion. never have i been so excited to remember so many names and years. ★ ART IS COOL ★

 

mao

jag var på moma ett tag sedan när jag fortfarande var kvar i new york! älskar ju modern konst, men måste ändå erkänna att san franciscos moma är snäppet bättre (fast de har precis lagt tre år på att renovera det, så det är väl därför).
här är några konstverk jag gillade eller tyckte var intressanta. ni känner säkert igen ett gäng. konst alltså! ändå fett.

what i’m up to next.

so, as you’ve seen me hinting this past week, i have a new chapter starting now. let me explain what’s going on on that matter.

so, i moved from san francisco to new york this past monday because of work. if you’ve been following me for a while, you know i was at apple during the summer of 2015. i loved it so much, and really wanted to get back.

16215647_10154807353156093_1613320118_n

and you know what? somehow i managed to get back here. so finally i’m back to commuting from san francisco down to apple 3+ hours/day. but you know what? I LOVE IT.

i am beyond happy to be back in san francisco. geez. i love this place so much, and i’m so happy i get to fall in love with it all over again.

♡♡♡♡♡

thank you for all your kind words on facebook and instagram, by the way. it really warms my heart!

other than falling for sf all over again, i’m sick and a little feverish and it’s just raining and raining and raining here in california. but it’s ok! there’s been a drought for years so it’s needed. and i’m just so happy to be back either way.

now i’m super tired and gonna check out, but i can’t wait to share my life back in sf with you guys.

 

mao

jag har flyttat tillbaka till san francisco! det känns så jäkla fint, är helt nykär varje dag. och har dessutom fått komma tillbaka till apple där jag ju jobbade sommaren 2015 som några av er eventuellt minns. ÄR SÅ PEPP. <3

gud nu måste jag checka ut, är så trött och febrig buhu. men lovar att dela mer sf life asap!!! tack för alla fantastiska kommentarer och all pepp på insta och fb. bäst e ni. puss

outfits 2016: may to august.

time for the second part of my outfit year 2016! may to august is up. find part 1 here.

may:

3

beautiful may! it was light and sunny—a little chilly this very day. but i could still wear a dress together with just a denim jacket and nike sneakers.

1

2016’s maybe most important outfit: my cap and gown for graduation of course! <3

2

one day when i was crossing the bridge with olivier, i wore a black skirt (as per usual) together with my apple pride t-shirt.

4

and mostly looked like a cheerleader, like i always try to do.

june:

1

speaking of cheerleader! in june, i actually bought a real one (well, not an ACTUAL real one, but a real-looking) cheerleader uniform and dressed up like this for the final day of sf pride.

3

on another day of sf pride celebrations (when we had mimosas on a rooftop, more specifically), i looked like this. in black top (forever21), pleated pleather skirt (h&m), flatforms (jeffrey campbell), rainbow necklace (think i got it from someone on pride the previous year??) and sunglasses (marc by marc jacobs).

4

harvested some basic tees and accessories at h&m (btw NEVER wore any of those necklaces more than maybe once lol)

2

and bought what might be my forever #1 favorite shoes i’ve ever had—the white woven nike juvenate. they are light as a feather, and kind of look like that as well.

july:

1

july came. one day, i wore vintage overalls with a pink crop top, the “i love you” tote siri gave me once and sneakers.

2

ultra pastel cheerleader! the crop top is forever 21 and skirt from american apparel.

3

also bought this skirt from fila’s collab with urban outfitters. wore it SO MUCH. <3

4

and then i posed against the lip wall in north beach with my black and white h&m dress marilyn monroeing me in the wind.

august:

1

just as you could read in the food summary of 2016, i was so sad in august that i barely took any pictures, so maybe not the best outfit pics here. this is however a vintage satin bomber jacket that i bought at no.

2

one day at a street festival in the mission, me and lisa found this weird photo booth van where you could dress up in some of their crazy props.

3

i hung out with richie who lived just a couple of blocks away from me at the time and borrowed his hoodie.

4

and went all in for the dolores park bohemian look with floral dress and braids.

that was part two of my outfit year! any faves? i really like pastel cheerleader myself, hehe.

 

mao

del två av tre av mitt outfitår 2016! sommaren mest. mycket cheerleader och sånt, som brukligt. nåt ni gillar? puss.

my last day in new york.

if you’re following me on instagram, you’ve probably seen where i am by now, but before we jump to that too quickly, i want to show you my last day in new york (and THEN i’ll tell you more about what i’m up to next!).

16128513_10154795930661093_302169524_n

i spent my whooooole last day with robert. he was so nice and decided we’d do only nice things. we started at beautiful café henrie for brunch where everything is pink and pastel. robert had a waffle with bacon and i had yoghurt baked eggs with za’atar toast (literally the strangest thing i could find on the menu, but it was good!).

16144629_10154795931711093_1009289980_n

here’s a neon sign they have at café henrie. do you love it? i thought so.

16144511_10154795930676093_347044057_n

we wanted to go to the new museum after brunch, but the line wrapped around the block (LITERALLY). so instead, we just roamed around nolita in the january sun instead, which was lovely too. we passed by this instagram wall.

16176105_10154795931311093_932837848_n

and walked into every single store we thought looked cute.

16144543_10154795931211093_1677848807_n

new york though!! <3 this nomad life omg, always torn between places. new york is a splendid fucking city though. never 4get

16176036_10154795931346093_2026504265_n

towards the end of the night we met up with paul, who (just like me and robert) moved to new york from san francisco, and we had goodbye beers on lower east side.

16176346_10154795931426093_1302295176_n

me and robert had dinner and drinks, and suddenly it was the morning after—and time to go to the airport for me.

16128010_10154795931456093_1521474433_n

not gonna get all emotional (at least not here and now), but it’s always SO HARD LEAVING places you’ve grown to love. especially when they’re as beautiful as a brooklyn in the january morning backlight.

16118132_10154795931591093_867354729_n

and then, yep, off to new adventures. <3

 

mao

min sista dag i new york. spenderade den med min finaste new york-vän robert. han lät mig göra prick vad jag ville så vi gick på brunch på gulliga café henrie, kollade precis alla fina butiker i nolita, drack öl med paul och åt pad thai innan dagen blev nästa dag och jag skulle hoppas på ett plan med alla mina väskor mot nya äventyr. vad det blev ska jag ju berätta mer om såklart. assnart!

from my disposable camera (and new things soon).

hey guys, sorry for going mute on you for a few days. i was in the middle of packing my new york life together …. BUT MORE ON THAT SOON. i’m very excited to share with you my next chapter, but first—let’s look at the other half of my disposable camera (first half here).

44350019

one day, me and robert walked around in greenpoint in brooklyn and checked out stores and hung out by the water.

44350018

a plane drew this heart. <3

44350011

and then in november i flew to toronto. cn tower was swimming in fog when i arrived.

44350009

this is kensington market, the little vintage village in toronto filled with thrift stores.

44350008

in mid-december, i said goodbye to the ad agency i interned at, and me and my intern friends had dinner at eataly.

44350007

me and jens! we were besties back in sf but haven’t hung out that much since we both moved to new york. we managed to meet a few times though. at h&m for example.

44350006

christmas came, and siri flew over from san francisco to visit me.

44350005

we ate all of the food in new york and did both local and touristy stuff—like taking pics at times square.

44350002

2016 ended, and i spent my new years eve with my new york bestie robert! <3 we went for dinner and drinks in west village.

44350001

and then continued the party in williamsburg until it was 2017 and my disposable camera was done!

outfits 2016: january to april.

happy sunday, my friends. besides the food summaries i do every year, i also look back on my outfits from the year that has passed. because food and clothes are the best things in life, non?
my 2015 outfit summaries can be found here: part 1, part 2, part 3.

now, let’s move on to 2016.

january:

4

i was in snowy stockholm and wore a wool coat from h&m together with my beloved super long scarf from gudrun sjödén.

3

and a lot of black, like this two-textured top and thick socks one cold stockholm day.

2

i spent some time in norway too, where i worked in retail = standing up and walking around all day. besides my dr martens with heels and gym shoes, i hadn’t brought any flats, so one morning, i ran across the street from our store to buy these rose gold sneakers to wear at work. perfect, huh?

1

i had recently lost my expensive marc jacobs umbrella :( so i was on the hunt for something to protect me from the rain. found this black rain coat on the winter sale in oslo. (question though—who wore it best, me or kanye?)

february:

4

february! and back in san francisco. i could finally go back to my denim jacket that i wore so much it started falling apart. plus the bordeaux marc by marc jacobs bag who has been my partner in crime since 2011 (!).

1

one day in hayes valley, i wore a vintage varsity jacket plus the putin you can’t sit with us tote (that i also loved way too much, cause it broke shortly after).

2

one day at h&m, i found this pink crop top that had a makeup stain on it for $1 (!!!). i washed it and it was completely gone. so awesome.

3

and one sunny day, i took a six hour walk with patty in my crazy jungle jumpsuit, which is actually one of my oldest pieces in my wardrobe, at least that i have here in the u.s..

march:

1

in march, i went to a james bond-themed party and dressed up in a black and white dress plus orange clutch that i bought way back when i lived in france once.

2

i traveled to portland, where it was early spring weather, so sweatshirt over my red dress worked just fine.

3

back in sf, i went hunting for more crop tops and found this one that i brought with me home.

4

and at the little store lavish in hayes valley, i found the cutest ramen pin.

april:

1

at the end of april, i turned 25! my favorite day of the year. in the morning, i dressed up in my floral dress, and mark who’s a fashion designer let me embroider a cheerleader on the back of my denim jacket.

2

i treated myself to new sneakers as a birthday gift to myself. white nike theas.

IMG_0670

for my big birthday party with all my friends later, i wore my black lace playsuit that i love so much.

3

mark, oscar and brandon gave me this beautiful timbuk2 backpack for my birthday. i was so happy! it’s very me.

 

mao

januari till april från mitt outfitår 2016! började i kalla sverige och norge ganska påpälsat, och sen flög jag tillbaka till san francisco där jag kunde fortsätta i kjolar och magtröjor resten av våren.

une photo chaque heure. janvier.

it was a long time ago that i last took you with me on a day through hourly photos. but on monday i did it, so here it is:

7 a.m.

one photo every hour.

now that i’m not working, i usually wake up late, but on monday i woke up seven something, and this was that it looked like outside my window.

8 a.m.

one photo every hour.

i stayed in bed and watched (half) and episode of the new sherlock season! v happy it’s back.

9 a.m.

one photo every hour.

i actually don’t watch the whole episode (it’s 1.5 hours!), but went back to sleep for a little. when i woke up again, i had breakfast in bed. greek yoghurt with honey and walnuts. in a plastic dish because i’m glamorous like that.

10 a.m.

one photo every hour.

i get dressed. green ribbed marc jacobs top and black jeans.

11 a.m.

one photo every hour.

my plan today was to go to moma! i had only been to the san francisco one, but never here. so it was about time! this is how pretty the walk is from me up to moma, which was about 15 blocks north.

12 p.m.

one photo every hour.

i walk around and enjoy the loveliness of modern art. yummm. i don’t remember the artist behind this piece, but doesn’t it give you that lovely headache only op art can? hehe.
i took a bunch of pics, maybe i’ll do a separate post with some moma art?

1 p.m.

one photo every hour.

it’s lunch time, so i grab food moma’s own restaurant. i have salmon with fresh potato. a little overpriced as expected, but also really good.

2 p.m.

one photo every hour.

i’m already finished! pretty surprised how fast it went to go through the museum tbh (the one in sf took, what, 4+ hours?). and to be completely honest …. i like sf moma a tiny bit more. then again, they’ve just spent 3 years on remodeling it, so maybe it’s not that strange. well, i liked both!
however, i walk down 5th ave—here’s rockefeller center with that strong dude outside.

3 p.m.

one photo every hour.

i need a new eyeliner, so i pop into sephora to get one. it took me (and the guy helping me) forever to find the right one! i wanted a liquid one, but still with a felt tip (not brush!). important important.

4 p.m.

one photo every hour.

i’m back home, and i lie in bed and read hanya yanagihara’s a little life. it’s so so sad. i guess i’ll tell you about it when i’m through.

5 p.m.

one photo every hour.

facebooking. feels totally ok in a non-guilty way to lie in bed and just scroll through facebook after spending a few hours at the museum, honestly.

6 p.m.

one photo every hour.

at 6, i watch skam, like every other swedish person out there right now, right??? heh. for you non-swedish speakers, it’s literally the most hyped tv show right now. a norwegian one, about high school kids and their lives. (way to sell it, vicky)

7 p.m.

one photo every hour.

i go to the gym! pow pow.

8 p.m.

one photo every hour.

and when i walked home the one block (blesss to live that close to the gym), it was this dark and pretty outside.

9 p.m.

one photo every hour.

and since i had treated myself to a fancy lunch, i had a very unglamorous dinner, with trader joe’s cauliflower soup, crackers with cheese and tomatoes.

that’s all from my monday! (can’t believe it’s friday already today btw?) have a lovely one, all of you.

 

mao

ett foto i timmen från i måndags, då jag gick på moma och kollade på konst (kan visa mer än denna ensa tavla i ett separat inlägg kanske?), hängde i sängen och läste och kollade skam och tränade. helt ok ledig dag!

best of my instagram bookmarks.

have you seen that you now can save posts on instagram and bookmark your favorite pics and videos so you don’t have to screenshot anymore? at least if you’ve updated to the latest version. then you’ll see that there’s a little bookmark icon next to all the posts in your feed. tap it to bookmark it—and all your bookmarked posts can then be found under the same icon on your profile.

i love this feature! and i’ve already been bookmarking a lot of posts in my feed (mostly cute animals …). wanna see some of the best ones?

a shar pei! remember that this breed was on my “8 really cute dogs” list? <3

a cat and a fish kissing. <3

hope you liked them too and maybe found some new faves in there.
happy thursday! <3

grejer jag har bokmärkt på instagram på sistone. mest gulliga djur och så.

food 2016: september to december.

the last summary of my food year is here! let’s dive straight into it:

september:

2

ghirardelli is a san francisco chocolate brand that arranges a chocolate festival every year. i went with siri and we had all the sweets.

1

in september, i traveled to chicago. had the famous lou malnati deep dish pizza of course. so good omg.

3

also in chicago, i met up with my friend jen and had poke at the hawaiian brunch place mahalo.

4

and back in san francisco, i went on walks with richie and we drowned our sorrows in candy.

october:

1

my last day in san francisco, i drank the fancy veuve clicquot that olivier had given me for my graduation.

2

and then i moved to new york! i had this beautiful avocado smash with robert at sweatshop in williamsburg one morning.

3

i’ve eaten in bed a lot this fall ….. like greek yoghurt with walnuts and honey, for example.

4

and another brunch with robert, this one a salmon hash brown at maman in greenpoint.

november:

1

then in november, i traveled to toronto, as you might remember! one day, i took a tour inside a brewery.

2

and of course i had to try canada’s national dish too—poutine. it’s fries with cheese cubes and gravy? sounds so weird but is really good, hehe

3

back in new york, i had two really new york-y things to eat: a pretzel from the 5th avenue corner at central park ..

4

.. and burger from dumont in williamsburg. yummm.

december:

1

my christmas was a little unconventional food-wise—me and siri threw traditions out the window and went for croque, omelette and brunch cocktails at matisse in midtown.

2

i also had breakfast pizza with truffle at gemma. (their bread basket bread here is just soooo good omg go eat it)

3

me and siri also went for korean tapas while she was here visiting. truffle mac & cheese, soft shell crab, and other yummy stuff. plus glowing lychee cocktails!

4

and then i ended 2016 with a last meal with robert at buvette, where we shared shaved brussel sprouts, lobster pie, and a tartiflette (with meat in it .. fail).

had a lovely ending to my food year—especially compared to my shitty summer.
next up will be 2016 outfits! coming soooooon. xx

 

mao

matåret 2016, del tre av tre! känns fint att titta tillbaka på slutet av året som ett gäng bra månader, efter en sådär matsommar. hoppas ni gillade mina matäventyr de sista fyra månaderna, i san francisco, chicago, toronto och new york. puss!
