Crystal clear


Hello you,
Hope you are all doing great and that you're keeping warm or cool depending on where you live.
Where I live in northern Sweden it is cold (not very, but enough to not be able to photograph outdoors), and I'm keeping warm with blankets and hot cups of tea.




When I was a kid I loved rocks, stones and crystals of all kinds. I used to collect some and at times I would get them all out and arrange them in order of colour, just look at them and be joyful. The little things really make me happy, and I was like that as a child too. The littlest thing could amuse and preoccupy me.


Jeans: Forever 21 (old)

This lovely top from Book of Deer with a crystal print reminded me of my box of rocks, and I went searching for them in my old stuff, and to my surprise, my box was still there, with crystals and stones of different shapes, sizes and colours - all living in harmony. It made me happy.


This unique and dreamy top also makes me think of the 70's, and I imagined that it would be what I would wear on the cover of my soul-rock record. Arms outstretched above me, my curly mane billowing behind me, a cross between Freddie Mercury and Erykah Badu. Well, I sure wish anyway...


I think I'm going to go arrange my rocks now.
I hope you all have a fantastic week, take care of yourselves.


Much love,

  1. That top is so dreamy, absolutely adore the sleeves and print! It's been absolutely freezing in London too, we even got snow yesterday (albeit a small amount). Keep warm! <3

  2. I love your top - it is so feminine. It is the sort I try to wear with my trousers to increase modesty!

  7. Ahhh! I had a box of rocks too! One of my favorite Christmas presents as a kid was getting one of those "Grow your own crystal" kits. I wish I would've kept my little box. This top is AMAZING! And I love all your photos of it! The crystals and the sleeves are too perfect.

  9. That top is amazing! I love how flowy the sleeves are. It's definitely reminiscent of the 70s. I'm so glad to hear that you found your box of stones and crystals from your childhood! When I was little I used to try to collect ants, but wasn't very successful. I'm still fascinated by them, and bees, too!

    1. Isn't it!! I usually don't go for 70s fashion, but I couldn't resist this one.
      Ants cool! Yeah, harder to collect living things. The are very fascinating, I agree.

  10. Mona I not only adore you and your outfit, but also the spirit in these photographs! I used to collect crystals and 'precious'(using that term very loosely) stones too as a child, and would often be found mezmerized by the rocks section of museums! BoD never ceases to amaze me with her creations and this is no exception!

  11. Such dreamy sleeves! So feminine and ethereal. I also loved collecting gem stones and rocks as a child, especially those gem stone bracelets! I still love collecting stones actually. I very rarely leave a beach without an interesting pebble or shell :)
