Gorgeous Globetrotter: Fredrika Akander

 

A post shared by F r e d r i k a (@fakander) on

Swede-by-way-of-Melbourne Fredrika Akander's Insta is one of our absolute faves. The beautiful blonde (who also happens to be a yoga teacher) is constantly heading out on beautiful adventures wearing gorgeous clothes and bringing us along for the ride. The personal style on display is always super refreshing — Akander mixes easy, street-friendly pieces with ethereal dresses and chunky knits with such ease that we're constantly inspired to re-try our own closet inventory in new ways. Below, the style muse chats globetrotting, OJ, and her obsessive (surprising!) hobby. 

Right now I'm in (part of the world): Amalfi, Italy

The last bikini I bought was from: Cantik swimwear, a nude cheeky one!

Hat or sunglasses: A big straw hat if I am on the beach.

Favorite sunscreen: I actually use an oil that my mum got from India made from a nut or seed. I cannot remember the name of that natural sunscreen. For the face, I currrently use a SALT one!

Beauty product I can't live without: Korres mandarin lip balm. I stock up everytime I go to Europe.

At the beach I always have a/my: A little bag with sunblock for the lips, sunglasses, sunscreen and hair ties. 

Coffee or tea? Right now coffee because I have been staying with my family for a few weeks and they are total coffee addicts! I have way too many in a day. 

My favorite place to travel is: Greece. All my best travel memories are from there. 

Instagram account everyone should follow (other than yours!)​:​ Currently obsessed with a girl called @saltyluxe

My go-to workout is: A short 20 minute weight lift session followed by mini yoga/abs/strech session. 

Favorite summer snack: In Sweden: fresh strawberries with ice cream. Anywhere else? Watermelon. 

Go-to summer cocktail: I don't drink alcohol so I will have to say juice in any shape or form. Whatever is in season! Here in Amalfi I have rediscovered good old orange juice. They have oranges here that are from another world!

Work of art/photograph/book/song I can't stop thinking about (with link, please): I re-read one of my favourite books this year, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, which still gives me chills and makes me cry and feel euphoric at the same time

My #summergoals are: Beach please!

Biggest inspiration: In life, my mother. She is just queen at everything! 

Where I haven't been that I most want to go: Brazil

Real tan or faux: Is it bad to say real? I know it's bad for you but it just feels so good!

I'm never without my: Phone. Sadly. 

You'd be surprised to know that I: Am a total knit freak. I knit all the time. I currently have like three different knit projects going on.
