I love walking, I always have, and since moving to New York I have found that one of my favorite things about it is that even though it is a huge city, you can pretty much walk to and from anywhere. Sometimes I walk 50 blocks, from uptown to downtown, and what is so amazing about walking like that is that the city changes so many times during your 30- 40-minute walk. The people change, the buildings change, even the streets change; from clean concrete streets(on the Upper West) to ancient cobblestones (in the West Village and TriBeCa). I love that.
Here I am wearing a mix of old and new things; a menswear jacket I bought recently at Uniqlo and I can’t get enough of, it’s cool and it keeps me warm. Also a pair of leather pants, because who doesn’t want a pair of leather pants these days?

One of my favorite books when I was a little girl was a Swedish, fairytale-ish story called “Through the Red Door”; it’s about a girl who is taken away by a rich, old man who has lost his daughter so he is eternally sad, and is called the “King of Tears” and lives behind the red door. He locks this girl up behind the door in hope to be able to feel love, like he did for his own daughter once, again. And he gives her everything you could ever dream of, but this girl only wants to go back home to her parents(well duh). It is such a cruel story and I don’t know why I loved it so much, but I think it must have been because of the amazing illustrations in the book.
And the moment me and my friend Natasha walked out after having a delicious breakfast at Bouvette in West Village, I saw the red door and immediately thought of this book. So here it is. Through the Red Door, modern day edition.
Also more photos of this look will come soon, because we spent a lot of time shooting in West Village that day.

I don’t think I have ever seen my new city as quiet as it was on Thanksgiving. Me and Sabina thrived in literally walking in the middle of the streets of the usually busy avenues without a car, or human, in sight. My first Thanksgiving here in the US was also lovely; with stuffed turkey, pumpkin pie and all of the other delicious things that has to do with this holiday. But it also made me miss my family and friends at home more than a little. I am so ready for Christmas and going back home.
These photos were not shot on Thanksgiving day though, but on Black Friday (believe it or not), walking some of my favorite streets of New York; before hiding away from the cold with Sabina, drinking a hot cup of tea and talking for hours at one of my new favorite cafés: Kaffe 1668 . Yes it is Swedish and it makes me so happy.
On another note, the necklaces I am wearing in these pictures are designed by one of my favorite jewerly designers, the Swedish Johanna N. I have just started as her brand ambassador and I couldn’t be happier, since she not only makes beautiful things, she is also a prime example of concious fashion and makes all of her things under fair conditions and in good materials. So do check her out.
Hope those of my readers who are celebrating it, have had a lovely Thanksgiving. And that the rest of you have had a beautiful weekend.
