Happy Monday noon everyone!
I’ve enjoyed my last week in Oslo with family and friends in the most surprisingly gorgeous weather, and haven’t had much time for updates. Stylewise it’s been pretty relaxed and right now I cannot get enough of these super soft dungarees with just the perfect wash.
Little Hedda on the other hand has finally got the chance to wave those little toes free in the air, bless the arrival of summer!
Happy Monday noon everyone!
Tonight is Fashion’s Night Out and I’ll be celebrating like last year over in NY. For those of you who don’t live in major cities around the globe you’ll find plenty of great offers and limited editions treats online as well. Phillip Lim celebrates with the release of his comic book ‘Kill the Night’, where every outfit worn by the superheroines are possible to shop. Ok, got a flight to catch, see you over in NY and have fun tonight everyone!!!
After 2 fantastic relaxing weeks on beautiful Santorini I’ve hopefully charged my batteries to last through the coming darker months.
Today I’m heading back to London to prepare for a very busy fashion month ahead, kicking off in NY next week, and I cant wait! Feeling beyond ready to leave my summer wardrobe and modus behind and dive into a new season, a fresh start, like every fall.
Time to wake up from my coma, bye bye clear blue waters, sandals, black beaches and tranquilo, wishing you all a great day and see you back in London!

As you may know by now I love travelling, especially holidays to beautiful hot places. This late noon I landed on Santorini where I will spend the rest of my summer holiday, this greek island is so far very promising and my hotel excellent. I’ll post about it another day, as now it’s dinner time and I cant wait to enjoy it on the beach. Wishing you all a lovely Thursday eve!

I love discovering “new” shopping secrets and great addresses for restaurants, which never seems to have an end in London. Just when I thought I had a pretty good idea of the best boutiques I came across Larizia, in St. Johns Wood a couple of weeks ago. A hidden gem of a boutique where you’ll find a great selection of clothes, shoes and accessories by Celine, Phillip Lim, Miu Miu, Stella McCartney, Balenciaga amongst others. This cute little boutique is definitely worth stopping by (also during sales!), but if you’re not around you’ll find some of the pieces at Farfetch, as it’s part of that boutique-network as well.
Here’s a tiny postcard from Cyprus where I’ve pretty much haven’t done a thing since I got here except sleeping and enjoying good reads by the beautiful sea. The internet haven’t been working the way it was supposed to so I’ve been cut off for a while but I guess that sometimes can be a good thing. When it comes to outfits there’s not much to speak of, bikini’s, shorts, tanks and sandals sums it up, I travelled here with only 15 kg, a new record for me in travelling light!
Bikini from Cos, tank by Isabel Marant, shorts American Apparell, sandals by Givenchy and Ray Ban’s.
A new favorite in my wardrobe that I’ve been wearing a lot lately but not managed to catch on camera is this knitted camoflage jumper from Topshop, perfectly slouchy on relaxing days, like last Sunday in Paris was to me, visiting Musee d’Orsay and drinking hot chocolate with rum.

When I headed to Roland Garros in Paris this weekend to watch tennis I opted for practical clothes, yes, not the most exciting outfit in the world but sometimes practicality comes first, even though I’m not a fan of the latter. Though skinnies, wool, rain coat, and hot drinks were miles away of keeping me warm, I really enjoyed the games, never thought I would turn into a tennis fan but there you go.
Sabaidee, I thought Phuket was hot, but I can promise you Laos is even warmer, and I’ve been soaking up by various pools in Vientiane this week, the only place to be unless you’re hiding indoors, like most locals do, something I do understand though as the sun here is burning hot.
I’ve to admit dressing for humid 40 degrees isn’t that inspiring as what works best is floating fabrics and flat sandals, this day however I made a small attempt to put some more effort into it without melting away.
My little adventure has soon come to an end, tomorrow evening I’m heading back to Europe and London, so soon back to reality, see you there!

As always when I pack my suitcase for a trip or holiday there are things I either forget to bring along or I urge that I had in my closet, like these picks. How I could forget a summery tote and open sandals at home is a mystery, and I’ve concluded that a small iphone bag to carry around the neck would have been perfect. Well, it’s to late now but I’ll for sure keep these beauties on my mind for my next trip.
1. Silk dress by Isabel Marant, 2. Sunnies by Alexander Wang, 3. Canvas tote Proenza Schouler, 4. Sandals by Givenchy, 5. Iphone sleeve Valentino, 6. Skirt H&M, 7. Floral blazer Maarten Van Der Horst for Topshop.
I’m not a big fan of paisley, whether it’s due to the association to home interior I don’t know, but somehow I’m a little more convinced than before, and I blame Raf Simons for that. So when I packed my suitcase for tropical days in Asia this old paisley smock insisted to come along, among with other airy light fabric dresses that are perfect to throw over a bikini. That’s pretty much what I’ve been wearing most of the time in the tropical heat, the freckles are back on and I’ve taken a break from hairdryers and make-up, wonderful!
Images taken in Phuket, I wore a dress Line of Oslo, shoes Alexander Wang, bracelets Proenza Schouler and Cooee, watch Michael Kors and Ray Ban’s.
Goodbye wonderful Ayara Kamala, lazy days by the pool, cocktails, fruit plates and good reads, now I’m just about to run to the gate for my flight to Bangkok and then heading for next destination, Laos, see you there!
Oh btw, these books are great reeds if you haven’t already read them, in my opinion Coelho’s books are absolutely fantastic, that should be elementary in school, thank you little sister for these gifts, I’m ashamed I haven’t read them earlier.
Headhunter by Jo Nesbo is a must by a Norwegian writer if you like more action, will definitely run out and get the DVD as soon as I get home.
Here’s pretty much where I’ve been hanging this last week, by a villa pool on a cliff in the Phuket “jungle” with the most beautiful peaceful view. However a few days back there was drama in the air when the tsunami warning and fear all of a sudden became reality, luckily warnings were soon called off and life went quickly back to normal, slightly freaky experience though.

Being a blogger with no internet connection is pretty hopeless, but I finally got it running in my new place and will post as normal from now on. Though life is pretty good in London these days I can’t help wishing I was back in my home city in Norway right now, according to my dear brother in the corner of this image, the Easter weather and powder snow is absolutely fantastic, envy!!!
