natural Summer | a nomination

I’m sure this never happens to you but sometimes I draft a post and then walk away or get distracted by my toddler who is climbing on my lap, or the table or other danger-to-toddler objects and then forget (am not allowed) to finish.
I intended to share this like a week ago but oh, you know, I got distracted.
Still, I love it. Fresh outdoor styling that makes me wish for my own outdoor room like this, styled by the ever stylish Josefin Hååg for Livet Hemma.

Also, and entirely unrelated I just found out that I was nominated for a 2015 Bloglovin Award. Honestly I’m quite taken aback with this because I know I haven’t been able to take care of my blog very well since I had Elin. 18 months later and I still find it hard to carve out a moment, alone, to look for inspiration that is quality enough for you all to look at. I try to only post things I truly love and even when I’m working in a sponsored situation it’s still a property for me to retain some honesty and taste with who/what I work with. If I had more time I’d love to craft something more flawless, more frequent for you all to read but in spite of my shortcomings with the blog I am terribly grateful to be nominated.
If you’d like to take a look at the list (I’m in excellent company btw) and to vote, go here.

Thank you to everyone who reads my quick captions and visual collection of inspiring and work. I sincerely appreciate it.
