Every time I visit a new city, it's important for me to really get a sense of it. I love to wander around aimlessly, pop into shops that are probably their equivalent of Wilkinson (though the Scandi versions seem far more fascinating) and just people watch. For my last full day in Gothenburg I got to stay with the lovely Fiona, someone who takes to new cities with ease. She has an amazing new apartment and I managed to find my way there without a map, which is no mean feat. I rely so much on 3G these days that an hour spent without it is an anxious one, though since I was in such great company it didn't matter quite so much.

Basically I packed three co-ords for my trip, so it was pretty foolproof working out what to wear each way. This one is from The Fifth, which incidentally comes from the same people behind Finders Keepers but at an even better price point. I just love the print, the top is a slightly weird fit on me (damn this short body of mine) so I'll probably wear the components in different ways. New brands are ten a penny these days but this one just stands out to me, maybe it's the Antipodean vibe of lots of easy separates that work well together and fun little details. Definitely looking forward to seeing more of this brand. My Vagabond trainers are still going strong and were great for a day of wandering around the shops. I didn't manage to take many snaps inside (though there will be a vlog, once I figure out how to edit over 100 clips) but you must check out Grandpa, Designtorget and Artilleriet if you're ever in town.
Even though things work out more expensive here, you do tend to get something really decent for your money and renting is a lot cheaper, so it all evens out. Our amazing breakfast at Café Kringlan on the last morning was pretty comparable to London pricewise and I don't quite get why these kinds of buffets aren't a thing here. I always like to pick at lots of different elements and I tend to get major FOMO with food so this was the perfect solution, just have everything!
I still have a competition running, so excited to give these bits away!
