The grey and the calm


(.)

Today is probably one of the most grey and rainy days Holland has seen in months.
However, i feel good. I made some decisions that weren't easy, but i made them. Something to be proud of, i guess.

I have to go to yoga class in about an hour and i have to do lots of reading for a project that just started at University, but i couldn't resist doing another post!

I found an amazing blog, with gorgeous photography. Vicky Slater's blog is definitely worth a visit!



Since fall (and winter!) are coming and i can already smell it, i started thinking about what to buy myself for these coming seasons. I don't 'need' anything, to be honest, but i was thinking about buying some great knitwear that i will love for the next couple of years, or even better: for the rest of my life!
These pieces by Sveta Dresher are absolutely gorgeous! Oh, and everything is made out of 100% organic materials!



(I am planning to dress like a little snowman this coming winter, i think it's so cute to wear lots of knitted things on your head in pale colours...)

What about these stunning items?



This dress by Swedish label Nakkna (found here) is simply stunning.
I love the shape and the print.....



More Nakkna...




To finish this post, i want to show you some pictures i saved on my laptop, but i don't know where i got them from....so no sources.







I want to thank you all once again for leaving such amazing comments on my blog.
I have no words for how much this means to me, really....

I am getting ready to go to Italy to teach a yoga retreat, and one of the people coming, is a yoga teacher from Holland. We have talked about me teaching a workshop at her studio there.

I don't know much about Holland, or how big it is, but if I do teach a workshop there, I hope you will come to it.

This complete blog is absolutely marvelous. Oh darling, I miss home so much as I read how cloudy it is over there. strange, perhaps, but everything reminding me to it, good or bad, makes my heart tear apart. I love this darkblue/grey set, im gonna message her for price info.
thank you for sharing it :)

The greyish/blueish blurred pictures of the model in a shirt and men's influenced trousers are stunning, I'm in love ....

Hi Mila!

I don't have a blog myself, but I love checking yours from time to time. You have incredible taste. The photos of Siri Tollard are from the May issue of British Vogue. I bought it and look at it all the time - even this many months later. And I think the photo with the womans back in the white swimsuit is a photographer from NY named NLang. I may work with her at some point. She is amazing! Anyway, thanks for always posting the most gorgeous of things.
