Last week was crazy! My man came back from Europe, and we had to pack down our apartment because this saturday we moved into our new house, yay! :D It's been so hectic that all I could do was to put on a print that was equally as hectic and just let it all flow.. But from now on I should be back to normal speed on the blog. The collection I am collaborating on is also coming to an end, I can't wait to show you the final result - so stay tuned :)
Today's style inspiration comes from these two lovely ladies. I think the color combinations and the play with proportions are super interesting, and I would do a combo like that any day!
Makes me feel fine!
It is so warm and so sunny in Dallas today, me and Hudson went for a long walk and the house is now clean - so I think the rest of the day has pool time written all over it!
Wishing all of you out there a lovely saturday :D
Friday! The golden child of the weekdays, the super hero of the work week and the welcome wagon to the weekend!
Today I found myself wearing all Zara from top to toe - I used to design for Zara so I guess I am a little work damaged with somewhat of a bias :)
Right now I am collaborating on a collection for a Dallas based brand, and the process of design can be a quirky one. Sometimes your work flows like nothing else, and it feels like you are flying, and then, without a warning it can turn into self consciousness - you are forced up against a corner with nowhere to turn. Then really - there is nothing else to do, but to procrastinate :D
Make a choice to take a chance, or your life will never change...

Today I said goodbye to my love. He is flying to Barcelona for work, the city where we first met each other, so that leaves me back here in Dallas with my other boy, Hudson!
Orange is a tough color, but when it's done right it is on another level! Here are some orange that truly inspires me...
Birds singing, flowers blossoming - I know I keep talking about spring time, but it's arrived here in Dallas, and it's making me pull out my prints and my jacquards! I hope the birds are singing for you as well, wherever you are...
Springtime has me in a mood :D The sun, the temperature, wind in my hair - it all makes me crave colors! Specially in my outfit, so here comes another combo that would make anyone smile...
Without women the world would look a lot different! So today we are going to celebrate feminine power and achievement, both in fashion but also in history. I remember feeling really inspired during fashion history back at uni, when we would hear about all the firsts that women had achieved back in a society that wasn't geared for women to take charge. So here comes some women that are truly inspiring to me! Of course there are many more women to be mentioned, but here are a few of them...
It's one of those days again... It's a new week and I am ready to go kill it, but for some reason the bed just keeps pulling! It doesn't really help that the weather is a grey as my mood. So the only thing to do is to fake it until you make it. I have tried to trick myself with glitters and heels so all I need to do now is go and attack this grey monday!
Today I want to talk about style. Not fashion, but style. Even though fashion is, to me, innovative, driven, an art form, exclusive and at times quite expensive because of the craft that it's derived from - style on the other hand does not have to be expensive. Style can be innovative and an art form itself as well - its all about seeing opportunities and options, therefore I decided to create 6 different looks solely based on Targets products. So this post goes out to my American friends :) If you are out to do your groceries, take a look at their fashion department before you leave the store!
Oh yeah, this post is not sponsored...
Today was cold and gloomy in Dallas, so I went for my gorilla jacket. I guess its a bit hard to see in the photos, but its made from this towel-like fabric and has a lot of texture to it. My boyfriend calls it the gorilla, and I thought that was quite fitting for it :D
My name is Lea Nyland, welcome to my world!
Today the sun is shining and we have a clear blue sky in Dallas. I love that blue color, and that is the inspiration for todays wish-look. Even though the sun is shining its quite windy and it feels a bit chilly, so therefore this blue casual, but chic sweat suit is my wednesday dream. Paired with some sparkles on my feet and a lemon twist in my hands I could hang out on the couch or go out for mid-week drinks with my man. I simply just adore this outfit <3
