One of the weirdest things about living in Stockholm is that even though it's a pretty big, semi- cosmopolitan city, you can still walk out of your apartment and find yourself in the middle of the woods. As a New Yorker, it's an incredibly strange dichotomy to swallow. I'm a five minute subway ride from Sodermalm, which is in the center city, yet I also live steps away from a giant nature reserve, and a ten minute walk to the nearest ski slope, Hammarbybacken. On my way to the subway yesterday, I witnessed a giant deer being chased frantically down the street by a miniature greyhound sporting a black and red wool jacket. True Stockholm fashion capital realness.
Anyway, I'm slowly adjusting to my new surroundings, and this weekend, Jimmy and I took a long hike in the woods. I don't have much in the way of hiking clothes, so I threw on my new Blood is the New Black sweatshirt, a fur coat, and my Alexander Wang boots, which have proved to be the best winter weather boots I've ever owned. Even though Jimmy slipped and fell three times, I managed to remain on my feet throughout the entire walk! Here are some photos from my neighborhood.
Jimmy slipped a few times so he was covered in snow
