We’re heading to the second month! Mikkel is now six weeks old and we are increasingly connected. I already understand him better and sometimes I can even predict some reactions or some of his needs. Of course, it would be easier if he spoke or had an instruction manual of sorts. K.K.K.K (nervous laugh).
The days are long as I have been always so busy – and that may be why time goes so fast. I get up from bed around 8am, change his diapers – I have learned that it has to be done before he eats so the position of legs raised when putting on new diapers to not cause discomfort and even vomiting. After breastfeeding I try to make him to sleep again by finishing his meals laying down on bed again. If it works and he finally sleeps again, I take a nap with him. It’s such a great feeling to be spooning with him. He feels safe and I feel the happiest mother.
Lindex has been one of my favorite fast fashions to shop. And it is totally due to their iniciative to extend the sizes in their regular lines, offering more diversity and inclusion in their collections. And this is to admire nowadays when we can see that there are so many brands that just seem to “keep eyes closed” to a trend of inclusion and diversity in fashion.
I have been invited by the brand to visit one of their shops in Oslo and pick summer outfits from the Holly & Whyte collection – the first to have extended sizes. Lindex still has the Generous line which is exclusively plus size.
Lindex is setting examples for the fast fashion brands around the world. They are including larger sizes in their regular lines, offering now the same clothes for sizes XS to XL. It makes so much more sense. We all should be able to have the same choices of clothes. Many brands nowadays approach a concept of fashion democracy, positive self image and diversity, but many of them are not even close to actually apply the speech to their strategy/services.
Can’t help myself when I see a match between two prints. And I do see this often.
It can be a match on the colors, on the patterns, anything really. It is kind of subjective, an intuition I’d say. But to mix prints is more like a feeling and a state of mind than a planned or ruled action. So, let your imagination guide you in the task of mixing prints in your wardrobe and play around.
The whole point when dressing up is to have fun and to follow your mood. So, just go with the flow and start matching up and dressing up.
