I’ve always loved Swedish style.
It all goes back to when my parents moved to a house in Malibu across the street from a Swedish family.Â They were glisteningly gorgeous to me as they sauntered around the neighborhood wearing clogs and simple, yet perfectly designed clothes with their young daughter Annika toddling behind them.
I wanted in. I told my mom I decided to become Swedish and I’d need a pair of yellow clogs to start.Â Â Unfortunately, you can’t change your heritage with shoe fashion–at least according to my mother.
But I was determined.Â I thought maybe I could marry my way in to that glorious country, which led to my thankfully short crush on the Swedish Chef from The Muppet Show. It ended because IÂ had no idea how to get to Sesame Street, which I had a feeling was rather far from Malibu…
But now I can soothe my inner Swede with goodies for the Peach from Polarn O Pyret, the insanely cute Swedish clothing company featuring well-made stripey goodness for kids AND all the preggie ladies out there.
Oh, I love Polarn O. Pyret so much. But really, how could I not when theyÂ clearly know my weak points–like big gingham prints like this?
And that’s just the beginning. Check out these cute designs:
People, half of these jaunty pieces are on sale.Â ON SALE. Up to 70 percent off.
Perhaps if I buy enough, they’ll make me an honorary Swede. A girl can dream…
