On my last day in Sweden, we visited the town Sigtuna. Founded in 980 and with a population of just over 8000, it's a sweet window into old Sweden. The pastel houses with lanterns and low ceilings look like they are straight out of a Wes Anderson film set. Each detail seemed like something from a storybook, and as I walked around, I couldn't quite comprehend that this town was real. From toy-like bicycles to hand painted shop signs to an antique phone box, I felt like I was living my dream '70s suburban teen movie.
After walking through the whimsical and quaint main street, we went down to the Lake. It was breathtaking. It was bright and inviting, with a large open deck looking out on to the rolling water. I couldn't resist taking some Dawson's Creek-esque pictures of me looking moody by the water, to once again make my suburban teen movie dreams come true.

I've been really into the '70s vibes lately. I found this pair of old jeans in my wardrobe the other day, originally bought for the fabric, and it turns out they fit pretty well. I've never been a jeans person, but these work really well when I'm pretending to be Donna from That '70s Show.
It was so wonderful walking through the town and sitting by the lake. Although I'm very much a city girl, and love living in London, sometimes I long for such a tranquil place to escape to. It can get so hectic and there are so many people in the city. Being in this remote, nostalgic town was truly magical.
