When life is good, really good

When life is good, really good

Fashion

I know it looks cold and when shooting these pics we actually had some snow. In Swedish we have a saying that goes something like “cold hands, warm heart” and boy were my hands cold that day! But that also means I have a heart that’s warm as hell… oh wait, that’s an oxymoron.

But the fact is that my heart truly is warm at the moment. I’m filled with joy, pride and happiness about all the good things in life right now. I’m not going to pour my heart out in this post as there is so much coming up (lamest cliffhanger, like, ever), but just you wait and hang in there and I’ll let you all in on it next week!  Until then you can indulge in some favorite pieces of mine such as the lovely bomber from ELEVENPARIS, my sweater from Franklin & Marshall or that beautiful watch from Knut Gadd. In Sweden we have a great tradition of making watches and this one is no exception.

    I’m so happy for you! At least one of us is super happy right now. 🙂
    Don’t know why but I feel like I have some kind of fall depression these days.
    But I have to say that I love your sweater. You can guess why 😛

    I’m so happy that you’re happy!!! Since we’re literally twins the happiness is most definitely contagious. I love your watch too! So stylish and you look so warm… it’s finally cooling down in LA and I’m actually bundled in two blankets as I write this. Surprising, I know. Have a great week Thomas! xo, sharon

    I’m loving all your items from ElevenParis. That bomber and the collar are so cool! I didn’t know cold hands, warm heart was local to Sweden. It’s the title of a Matt Kearney song here in the U.S. Good to know where it came from!

    Great outfit. Love the bomber jacket and white sneakers. That watch is fantastic. I love that saying “cold hands, warm heart.” It reminds me of Canada. Seriously though, I’d be bundling up like crazy to not have cold hands haha.

    Aw Thomas I’m so glad that you’re at a place where you’re really genuinely happy! That’s where you should always be! I can’t wait to read more on why 🙂 Aside from that, this coat looks super warm. I can’t believe NY has been catching snow flurries already! PS love the time piece! Square faces are so unique.

    I am sure we all know being happy is a great feeling! Thank you so much for spreading the good vibes and making all of us feeling so happy. I was introduced to a watch maker from Sweden recently and was so impressed by the beautiful craftsmanship of the watch I received! You always style everything so perfectly (wish I could borrow your bomber and sweater:)).

    With love,

    You are brave to be out there in the cold, snowing like that! Living in a HOT state all the time I am not particularly a fan of cold weather but lately I have been loving it. I LOVE your bomber, been such a fan of them lately and this one is cool with the fur collar. Happy you are filled with so much joy right now too! xo, Darci
