// I’ve been listening to the music, to the riffs, to his voice through ”The Wind Cries Mary”, ”Hey Joe” and ”All Along The Watchtower” since I was a child. Even when I didn’t want to listen my father played his songs and jammed his songs on his own guitars in the living room while I at last fell asleep in my bedroom. Jimi has been a part of my life since I was born, but it’s not until now I know the real story.
Of course I’ve known the cause of his death, the joining of 27 club and a bit of his history, but while reading through the internet, through Wikipedia and whilst googling quotes and interviews, I feel a deep anxiety. I’m having hard to breathe and I feel such pain for Hendrix. I know he lived his life just as he wanted to, but still I feel sick to my stomach from listening to the music, truly understanding him. I guess.
27 club in general scares me. Deep inside I have a fear of dying the year I turn 27, even though I know I don’t have and will never have drug problems or any issue that will cause my early death. Still, I feel stressed about the whole 27 club-thing. It’s depressing how such fantastic artists as Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain. I can’t help myself from wondering what would’ve come next if it wasn’t for their death. The fantastic music that would’ve kept being released. Most of them died because of drugs and alcohol. It’s a tragedy what stress, accomplishment-anxiety and the drugs do to people who could’ve had longer lives with love, families and great music.
It’s a total tragedy. //

KNITTED – RALPH LAUREN / JUMPSUIT – H&M x COACHELLA
I played it simple about a month ago when I wore this. The knitted sweater has been a favorite piece in my wardrobe ever since I got it back when I was 14 when I inherited it. It’s not in the best shape anymore, but I still love it. I think the jumpsuit matches it perfectly while being in the archipelago. A little countryside-chic, we can call it.
I actually lived on Tjörn which in an island in the archipelago of Gothenburg for about two months for an internship at NA-KD where I managed the influencer marketing. I loved the internship but Gothenburg was truly not my place to be, even though I enjoyed my time at Tjörn which was about an hour of drive from GBG. It was calm and silent, and even though that made me sad in the beginning, it became useful for me now and forward. I learned how to be alone and actually be okay with it.
Now, though, I’m back home in Stockholm since about a month ago, or maybe even a little longer. I like Stockholm, but I’ve realized that Tjörn is a perfect place for a future-country place. I wouldn’t be able to live there all year around, but during summer it made me happy and I felt comfortable being there for a while.
What would the end of summer be without an ice cream? Nothing, of course, so to end this blogpost I’m wishing you a happy weekend and I hope all of you are well. Until next time. ♡

// Without questions or doubts, I will from now on only post outfit posts now and then. My personal life will contain personal and that’s that. I’ve deleted all of my old blogs and all of the posts I’ve ever made so that we have a clean slate to start with.
