When I was a kid I devoured the Hanna Andersson catalog. I imagined myself in glorious Sweden, frolicking through meadows in clogs with hair in slightly disheveled braids. Growing up in Southern California, there was a little less meadow and wooden shoes and a little more beach and flip flops, but the dream remained. Since then, I married a guy from Denmark (close enough :), bought my own pair of wooden clogs, and devoured myself in the Scandinavian aesthetic. You can imagine I was thrilled at the chance to partner up with Hanna Andersson and their women’s clothing line, Love, Hanna and showcase 6 fun outfits for spring—complete with many pairs wooden shoes, of course.
First up, the moment I receive this skirt (on sale now!) in the mail I put it on and didn’t take it off for three days. It’s THE MOST comfortable. AND it has pockets. I love it with the white Swiss dot pop over. With the puff sleeves, I feel like a modern day Anne Shirley.
I pretty much only wear dresses and skirts these days (they’re a lot more forgiving of my waistline than pants) and this Swedish summer dress has a great pattern to it and is super airy and again, WITH POCKETS. Pockets change everything. I paired it with some of my favorite floral socks and their dark red ankle boots (on sale!).
