Happiness is a royal color by Lea Nyland

Lately I have thought a lot about happiness. It's something we all seek, something we all feel, something that is a common denominator for us all. But sometimes it can feel like it is so far gone, and at other times it can feel like it will never stop! 

There are a lot of theories on happiness. Some say it's in our genetics, and that there are people who are more predisposed to being happy then others, and some say that it is all a mindset and that we have the key to happiness within our selves through the focus we choose.

I believe it is an equation of a lot of circumstances and points of views,  but none the less, when you do feel happy - it can make you feel like the queen of the world! A good place to start, is to become your own best friend :)

Print on print by Lea Nyland

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 :)

Summertime!! by Lea Nyland

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

Stripe a pose by Lea Nyland

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

Fly boy by Lea Nyland

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!

Happy international women's day! by Lea Nyland

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...

Monday blues by Lea Nyland

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!

Style challenge - Target by Lea Nyland

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 

Casually chic by Lea Nyland

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
