Love your Feet

Barefoot High Heels

As a physiotherapy-student I’ve had to understand that the feet are a very complex part of the body (believe me you get no chance of ignoring that fact when studying for anatomy-exams), they are bearing up the whole bodyweight and are so important for the ability of walking. With that in mind I get a little puzzled now when thinking back on how I’ve recently been treating mine.

I still have my feet on the ground, I just wear better shoes. -Oprah Winfrey

The last week my feet have been aching and so I decided it is time to grow up, there are many precious beautiful shoes out there but no as precious as my feet. So now I have bought me a new pair of summer shoes, stylish looking but also flat and with a supporting sole.

Wera Shoes Isabella Kilenstam Inkwardrobe

The shoes I bought are from the brand WERA Stockholm. I love the colour and I love that everything except the bottom sole is in leather, now I just hope they will last for a long time.

This picture gives some information that might be worth considering before choosing shoes. Let’s all show our feet the love they deserve.

Audrey on Google

Audrey Hepburn Google Inkwardrobe

I absolutely love today’s theme on Google celebrating Audrey Hepburn’s 85th birthday. Not only a famous actress she is also a timeless style icon.

When growing up Audrey practised ballet and it is told that she during World War Two secretly danced for groups of people to collect money for the dutch resistance. She also occasionally acted as a courier for the resistance, delivering messages and packages.

Audrey’s first big role were in the Broadway-play Gigi, she had trained in theatre all her life and was found by the novelist Colette who was looking for someone to play the title character of the play.

From there followed leading roles in many big movies, amongst other Roman HolidaySabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Audrey will always be remembered for her iconic looks, such as black cigarette pants worn with schoolboy pullovers, headscarves worn with oversized sunglasses and of course the “little black dress” from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. -Audrey Hepburn

In the 80′s Audrey became a Goodwill Ambassador of UNICEF with the aim to help children in the most poor countries. From there on she went to missions in several countries from Turkey to Somalia trying to make a positive change for children. Growing up Audrey travelled a lot with her family and went on to speak fluent English, Dutch, French, Spanish and Italian which this came to use in her travel’s for UNICEF and she also had experience of World War Two in her memories motivating her. She kept her dedication through the rest of her life.

Audrey died in her sleep on the evening of 20 January 1993.

Blazer and Skirt

Isabella Kilenstam Inkwardrobe

I’m kind of a tomboy, I have always preferred pants over skirts and dresses. But everyone needs some variation from time to time and today is one of those days. When wearing this kind of garments I turn to the business pieces or maxi-length which saves me from that overwhelming cuteness other skirts and dresses remind me of.

Danish Magazines

Danish Fashion Inkwardrobe

Every time I walk into a store with magazines I’m immediately drawn to the danish fashion magazines, obsessing over the attractive covers and moaning over my problems to understand danish.

Am I as a swede raised with the tale about Copenhagen as a fashion capital? Can it be the low saturation?  Or it might be that the women on covers look so grown up? Anyway it continues on every month. I run to the danish section! But after quickly opening them I don’t buy anything – I guess I just like the look of them.

Short Green Manicure

Easy Easter Style

To me, being with the family during the Easter holiday, relaxed and comfortable style is the way to go! And when I want relaxed and comfortable I look for leather jackets and cosy sweaters, to keep me warm near the Easter fire. I would have loved to have this leather jacket, really love the female look of it!
