SWEDISH MIDSOMMAR

Happy Midsommar my darlings! As I would say in Swedish “Glad Midsommar!”. I’m a total lover of traditions and I would never skip any of them! Traditions are a possibility to really add that sparkle to the daily life and a great opportunity to celebrate. Tonight we are hosting a midsummer party at our house were we have invited our Swedish friends and their partners. Normally one would of course celebrate during the day but as it’s a normal working day here in Switzerland, we celebrate in the evening.

I will serve a traditional midsummer buffet with herring, potatoes, smoked salmon, a Swedish cheese pie (Västerbottens paj) and in addition to that lots of small canapés with sea food and pastes that we brought from Sweden on our last visit. By tradition we always drink beer and snaps, but as I’m allergic to beer we will be serving white wines and cocktails.

SOFIA CM INTERIOR BLOG ZUICH,
When it comes to the dress code I normally wear my traditional “Folkdräkt”, but it’s simply too hot right now to wear anything with several layers of wool so I’ll be dressing in my white splice dress with sandals and I know my man will wear his linen pants.
SOFIA CM INTERIOR BLOG ZUICH,
Follow my instastories to see more of tonight. I wish you a fantastic Friday and Glad Midsommar!

MONDAY FASHION PICKS

In the end of July I'm attending a wedding of a Swedish girlfriend, in Sweden, although she's living in New York. I know the crowd will be international and know that the styles of the guests might vary, especially during the gatherings and the dinners. 

At the night of the wedding, at the party I want to look cute rather than sexy and just bought this blush dress from Alexis. I haven't decided if I want to wear glammy heels or classy simple ones; I'm hesitating between the two pairs below. And bag, something blush pink and small and a pair of sparkling earrings. Hugs!

STAGE ONE

Good morning beauties, I hope you slept well. I did't sleep at all... I woke up and my face and my tongue feels all swollen, my lip too, you can see it in the picture. I had a surgery there once and each time I'm sick or stressed it pops. What is this strange flu I have got?! I felt so good yesterday but today I'm straight back to stage one of flu. I'm going to the doctor around noon to make some tests.

But even if I feel crappy on the inside there is no reason to not look good on the outside, I guess I can fool the brain a little at least. To put some sparkle onto this day, I'm wearing a glittery cardigan and golden sandals from Massimo Dutti and Jeans from Lindex.

I'm not going to go anywhere today as I'm afraid to give this flu to someone else, so the plan for today is to stay home and organise my closet a little and most of all rest. I'm crossing my fingers the doctor will give me some magic pills and all will be good tomorrow. Hugs!

If I were to indulge myself in accessories and jewelries it would be very much just like this. Lots of love to you this afternoon, I’m about ot leave my laptop, put on my bikini and go down to the lake for a swim.

MOOD BOOSTER

Good morning darlings, Last night I decided to clean up one of our closets, the one closet where we always throw in things and close the doors. ( Does everyone have a closet like this one? ) ...And what a beautiful mess it was of documents, chargers, flipflops and gifts.

Speaking of gifts; I was happy to find this super cute babydress that I've bought last year at H&M for a friend of mine. I realised it was too large for her little girl so I kept it for later. I have no children myself ( yet ) but I must admit that my new hobby is to go shopping for my friends babies; it’s such a mood booster! And it’s hard to not smile every minute when looking for the cutest clothes and toys.

Myself and children, yes, that day will absolutely come and hopefully sooner than later but as conservative as I am, I want to be married before planning further. And so far, no rings on my fingers, meaning no family plans;-) I’m going to kick off this day by teaching myself how Amazon works, their seller central and their wear house opportunities. Happy Tuesday!
