A-line

Over the years I’ve learned to narrow down my wish list for the beginning of every new season, since I like to mix it up with timeless basics already in stock. This season my list included the rather obvious ones, a blanket cape, a few coat assembles, more chunky knits (can’t get enough), knee high boots (still haven’t found), and high waisted A-line skirts. With the latter as one of my new wardrobe favourites as it’s super versatile and everlasting, you can surely sign me up for leather and velvet versions too.

Hoop hoop

Celine hoop earrings 2014celine.com

Accessory trend this season, the single statement earring, we’ve seen it for a while and we love it right. Be ready to embrace the hoops too, my personal favourites, and more easy to come across if you don’t want to dig deep into your Celine pockets.

Mid October and London temperatures are perfect, just perfect to sport bare legs alongside something that keeps you warm. Better take the opportunity while we can, before we know it it’s time to wrap up head to toe, and the black tights I usually dread so much. However, thanks to lovely 60′d mod inspirations from the Saint Laurent house this season I won’t mind really, now the hunt for the best black tights begins…

Happy Sunday you lovely ones!

If you haven’t yet tired of cosy, long sleeved, chunky turtlenecks, stay in there. I’ll most definitely keep drowning in mine along with the usual basics, no rocket science going on here, keeping things simple and comfortable, with a touch of print. Latest print addition is this bag by Sophie Hulme, the perfect compromise between clean lines, colour and functionality.

Wishing you all a glorious weekend!

Denim + Slingbacks

I love a denim+slingbacks combo, and these specimen by Dolce & Gabbana might possible find their way to my shoe collection at some point. Not that I would’ve mind any of the other beauties here either, then my Thursday outfit would have been solved!

After coming to terms with summertime sadness blues, fall has officially arrived in London. And like every year it’s not so sad after all as we can finally add those extra layers and bring out new seasons coats, scarves and ponchos. Latest addition in my own outerwear closet is this wool coat by Ganni, a chic, basic, timeless piece that I’ve been looking for a long time having had no intention digging too deep in the pockets.
May the layering begin!

70′s nod

Louis Vuitton ss15Louis Vuitton ss15, images Style.com

After several weeks of models strutting on SS15 runways, presentations, energy and mood in different cities, either observed closeup or from afar, there’s especially one trend that over shines everything, the references to the 70′s.

From my personal point of view Nicolas Ghesquiere for Louis Vuitton won the nod to the 70′s with his typical stamp and forward looking eyes. And if there’s something I’ll be sporting very soon may it be high waisted A-line skirts paired with fitted blouses or turtlenecks, shades of brown, and don’t forget to bring the velour out, yum!

Can a girl ever have enough of soft, chunky, cashmere turtle knits?
Judging from what’s dominating my wardrobe shelf in the knit department, apparently not. In my opinion, there’s nothing as cosy and versatile during fall as snuggling up in an oversized knit, preferable in shades of grey. Bags, shoes, come and go, but if there’s one item I find really worth investing in this is it.

Wishing you all a glorious sunny 1′st of October!

Picks

transitional outfit-Northern Light

It’s time for transitional dressing again and while the weather still allows bare legs I would still choose to bring along something knitted. Tomorrow, Paris is on the menu and I wouldn’t mind at all jumping into this total look, with the cashmere knit wrapped around my shoulders or waist, all new picks in stores!

Happy Monday morning world!

Culottes have certainly been ruling my wardrobe this year in various fabrics and colours, and my love for them is still going strong. I love how they work so well casual dressed down with a chic cosy knit or more dressy with a blouse or top. On this particular day back in NY volume was apparently on my mind, volume on volume, just love breaking them rules.

Holzweiler – The perfect scarf?

Holzweiler wool & cashmere scarves

I’ve always been on the hunt for the perfect chunky scarf that has the soft cashmere touch but still has enough hold not to fall flat around the neck. Well, I’ve found them in my motherland Norway, by Holzweiler Agency, blends of wool and cashmere, made in Italy, and comes in a range of sizes, prints and and colours, in the pocket friendly price range of €109-€135. I’ll start wrapping mine over my shoulders with a belt ala Burberry as soon as temperatures allow it, yum!

Kimono me

It’s been a while, but I firmly believe the world is still standing!
As you may know the semi annual fashion month tour is fully on, and so far I’ve been pretty much living in suitcases, spending more time in taxis between appointments and shows than in front of my laptop. The good thing though is that amongst my heavily packed suitcases there is space for inspiration that I’m storing on the go, and hopefully after having time to digest it all, we’ll have something to snack about in the darker months sets in.

Sartorial-wise I’ve sported  the dress+sneakers look a lot lately, either kimono dresses or little lace numbers. This has certainly been the year of sneakers and pointy flats, and from what I’ve seen so far it won’t be over very soon either.
Happy Tuesday  Everyone!

Ryan Storer

ryan storer

I’m personally a big fan of Ryan Storer’s new collection which involves clean, bold, yet understated pieces with Swarovski pearls. Fine jewellery really is peaking at the moment, which also goes for their amounts of carats and price tags, but these pieces come more pocket friendly for sure. This Rhodium earring for instance is yours for £160 and you’ll find it here.
