In Bloom

by Elsa Termenon on March 8, 2012

This is what I call spring! I couldn’t be happier about the weather we’ve had the last few days here in Philadelphia, finally it’s warm enough for ice creams, lunch outside in the sunshine and even picnics in the park. Today as I headed for lunch in the sunshine with a friend was therefore a [...]


We went to meet spring

by Elsa Termenon on February 9, 2012

Frequent readers of this blog knows my love for a place outside Philly called Terrain. I’ve written about it numerous times and since this place always fascinates me – regardless of season. It’s basically a garden center, store with everything from gardening things, books, beauty care and jewelry and a restaurant serving up some delicious [...]


By the River

The last couple of days has been just amazing, the weather has at last switched to summer and the trees and flowers have exploded with color! I’ve been anxiously waiting to wear this dress, that I got at Wasteland in L.A, until today when I could finally be barelegged, just like I envisioned when I [...]

On Good Friday we made the house cozy and lit the fireplace. We had finally found birch branches so we could do an Easter Tree which is very typical in Sweden. I was very happy!! We popped some bubbles and started cocking. Mini Daffodils! We had a great dinner with fresh pasta that my husband [...]


Happy Easter!

Since I have lived abroad or been temporarily working abroad for the last 4 easters (in India and in the States) I have not really celebrating this festive occasion with my family like we have always done. This year however, since my parents are here visiting us, we’re making up for the lost easters in [...]


A Stroll in East Village

On Sunday it was such a sunny and nice spring time weather, in contrast to rainy grey Saturday, so we decided to walk around East Village a bit after brunch. I was wearing my vintage kimono wich was one of the things I got at Wasteland in L.A a few weeks back. This kimono jacket [...]


Flower Power

by Elsa Termenon on April 15, 2011

Remember that flowery little piece of fabric peaking out of a shopping bag in this post? I told you it was something that had made my heart race when I had tried it on in the little vintage store here in Philadelphia. Well, here it is, my latest vintage treasure – a pair of 70′s [...]

No, spring and summer can’t be all white and colorful. I have to admit that I prefer wearing black in the summer over doing so in winter. Winter is just so dark and gloomy anyway, it doesn’t need more black. But in the summer, when you have a light tan and feel in a happy [...]


Magnolia Blossoms

Today was the first day of this spring that I’ve been able to wear a dress without tights, it’s been such a warm wonderful day! I ended up wearing this top to toe vintage outfit for brunch with my parents who arrived from Sweden yesterday evening. The dress is a 70′s neon paisley dress that [...]


My Summer Wardrobe

by Elsa Termenon on April 8, 2011

The last couple of months I have slowly seen my summer wardrobe emerge. It’s part old things from last year, part vintage finds from my latest trip to LA and part some newly acquired goodies! As I cleaned out the wardrobe and stored the thick winter knits for this time, I pulled out the things [...]
