This past Friday was Midsummer's Eve, which we celebrate in a serious way here in Sweden. I wrote about our Midsummer festivities last year in the post Long summer days and berry cakes.
One thing that is essential for Midsommar (as we call it) is strawberries. The prices of Swedish strawberries doubles around the time of Midsummer. No one cares. Strawberries are a must.
This outfit has the same colour scheme of strawberries, with the red and green.
This dress is my first and, so far, only dress from Bernie Dexter. It also happened to be the very first dress that I bought from ModCloth (back when ModCloth sold Bernie Dexter), and it's the dress that introduced me to vintage style. For all of those reasons this dress is one of my favourites.
If you've been following me on Instagram (@curlsncakes) for a long time you might've seen this dress on me previously. It was the dress I was wearing in my first post on Instagram! So this dress means a lot to me.
My sister and I photographed this dress in the evening at around eight or nine pm, but as you can see the sun was still high in the sky. I love summer in northern Sweden. It's bright day and night. The white nights are one of my favourite times of the year.
I hope you all are having a splendid Summer so far!
