Exploring Gothenburg, Sweden – March, 2017

Hi readers!

I am still slightly annoyed at myself for accidentally deleting all the content of my previous blog post but there’s not much point dwelling over it…

Instead, I will share with you my outfits during my short time visiting relatives over in Gothenburg, Sweden!

My mum and I decided to go on a mother and daughter trip, where she had no choice but to become my personal photographer.

Day 1 – March 25, 2017

(I should probably mention that, unfortunately, these bright coloured walls do not exist within the realms of Stansted Airport)

This Madia & Matilda grey tank top was sent over to me to provide a review of their products; I will have a more detailed blog post about this soon.

Though what I can say is that, yes, I agree… It’s just a grey tank top, right? What’s so unique about it?

The story and message behind each part of this fabric is what will perhaps alter your perception about their collection.

Please do check out their website www.madiamatilda.co.uk to know more about the ways in which they are contributing to raising awareness of sustainability and reducing waste in the fashion industry.

Day 2 – March 26, 2017

Gothenburg is a city that probably didn’t make it to your bucket list.

It definitely wasn’t on mine, and without the help of our relatives, who live just outside of the central, we would be clueless as to where we would go or if we would have even visited this city.

We started the day by attending the 11am mass and swiftly visiting the botanical garden nearby.

It was stunning. A myriad of plants originating from different parts of the world coming together to create one beautiful garden.

For the rest of the day, we gallivanted around the city centre to see the variety of shops Gothenburg had to offer.

Day 3 – March 27, 2017

For Day 3, we headed back into the city in search of some fridge magnets to add to our collection. This time, we were on our own as the relatives we were staying with had to go to work.

Unfortunately, I decided to plan my outfit according to the current British weather which was too optimistic for the climate up north.

This day was particularly the coldest, so a denim jacket as my main source of insulation was certainly not a wise choice.

We also planned to go to a museum that my mum found on the internet, however we had no idea how to get there. Through a mixture of misunderstanding and lack of knowledge, we inadvertently got off at the wrong stop.

With situations like this, I always try and find a silver lining. In this case, it gave me an opportunity to capture some outfit-of-the-day pictures.

We then headed back towards the house but made a quick stop at Slottskogen – Gothenburg’s largest park and recreation area.

Due to the insufferably low temperatures (okay, i’m exaggerating here but it did reach sub-zero), we finally surrendered and decided to quickly end the day and return the next morning.

Day 4 – March 28, 2017

Our last and final day.

Before leaving for the airport, we stuck to our plan of going back to the park to explore it further.

Luckily, the temperature was tolerable.

We were met with a number of Nordic animals such as elks, Gotland ponies and Gute sheep.

A free park zoo, essentially.

The view was incredible, and it was the best way to end the trip.

And of course, after coming across a bright coloured wall, I couldn’t help but to take a picture in front of it…

That’s it!

I want to thank my mum for this trip which gave us a chance to experience some rare moments together as mother and daughter..
