  5. Hi Stina!

    Would like to ask for your help. I am going to several weddings this summer and are planning my outfits. Two of the occations has the dresscode tuxedo, one in june and one in august. I have always worn short dresses for that dresscode before, byt since I have several long dresses already that never gets the chance to be out and about I am thinking of of wearing them instead. Althoug, I am afraid to be overdressed, since I actuallly bought them to wear when it is "frack". The style of htem reminds a lot about the dresses from Malina, both in material and style. They are no ball dress per se. I am thinking of wearing them with a little more informal hair and lossen them up a little. What would be your suggerstion? Can I wear a full lenght silk dress to a wedding that says tuxedo?

    Do you have any other suggestions on brands or styling?

    Wish you the best!

    1. Hi Josefin,

      A long dress is absolutely appropriate for a Tuxedo dress code, as a matter of fact that's what preferred when asking for that so a long, lovely dress would be perfect!

      For the hair, I always find that a sleek knot is very nice for a long dress, it very easily becomes " to much" else with the long dress, accessories and all hair. But you do as you feel and what you feel most comfy in. I would wear a knot, some nice earrings, maybe a small bracelet and nothing more. That's simple but yet can be very feminine and nice. Not too much makeup, rather no eyeshadow then a lot going on.
      Choose a pair of match or unmatchy heels and a clutch that goes with and voila!

      Have fun!
      Stina

  6. Hi Stina,

    You have the most wonderful style of all! Looking gorgeous as always :)

    Please tell me what you think of Swiss womens' style. I am moving to Switzerland with my husband later this year and I don't know very much about the style there. I've been there a few times but not long enough to grasp the 'Swiss' style.

    Thanks dear. Please keep the photos coming :)

    1. Good afternoon!

      Well it's obviously impossible to put a style on all women in Switzerland and also, they dress very differently depending on if they come from the German part or the French part, a small city or a bigger city.

      But in general I would say that the women who cares about style and clothes dress less fashionable but with a very good sense of materials, quality and cut. The women who dress nice tend to dress very sober but with a timeless elegance. Specially the older generation.
      The younger (15-25 years) generation dress more modern and hip and have adapted more into what's "in" then the others, but they tend to dress quite the same all of them, just like most young people do in that age.

      I do have to make a quite bold statement here though and it's about the fact that the smaller cities I've been to is like smaller cities normally are. Less high end (despite for some) and less aware in average.

      Hope It helped you a little!

  8. Love the belly pic (again);), but it is always so fascinating to me that there is a small human being growing inside.
