5 spring looks from Hanna Andersson


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!).

This top below is one of my favorites. It’s an embroidered pop-over that you can tuck in or leave out like a tunic. I paired it with my own skirt that I got in Copenhagen years ago, when I was a size or two smaller (suck in, suck in, suck in!) and the great red boots again.

If I were to live in good weather year round I’d consider wearing this outfit every day. It’s a summery yet classic ticking stripe shirtdress that would be perfect for going to the market or beach. And the hat is perfect. I’ll be wearing it every day when I garden. The clogs are some of my favorite. Brown leather clogs (on sale!) pretty much go with everything. The House That Lars Built for Hanna AnderssonThe House That Lars Built for Hanna AnderssonThe House That Lars Built for Hanna AnderssonLastly, this scoopneck dress is dreamy. With pockets, it’s perfect for a casual day. It’s one that I’ve put on repeat. I paired it with my own floral button down and their black clogs.
