Though I know many of you out there are addicted to the sweat, pain, and released endorphines that goes hand in hand with organised training, being honest, I’m certainly not one of them. However, we do what we gotta do, and number one thing to get me motivated to kick off a training session is fabulous sportswear, being honest again, it does count a whole lot if you’re as undedicated like me.

When I recently teamed up with Net-a-Porter’s newly launched lifestyle category Net-a-Sporter, who’s got an amazing selection of everything from gym wear to loungewear brands, I chose the most natural location, my childhood playground in the north of Norway. Except for feeling strong, beeing physical in wild nature has always given me a feeling of weightlessness and is fantastic for clearing your mind. Highly recommended you lovely ones, in style, lets get started shall we?

Sum-up

Holidays are the best, and I guess I had my fair dose this month which was heavily needed. It’s time to roll up those sleeves (literally!), and look forward to the best season that’s lurking around the corner, no more holiday blues here no.
It’s incredible how escapes and sunny rays lift your mood, and recharge your inspiration batteries.

As for outfits ahead, I could pretty much live in this one all through the coming season, tailored relaxing separates and a pair of luxury slides, pretty much sum up my summer 2014 before it actually began.

Postcard from DR

Dominican Republic Paradiso Trip2

Dominican Republic Paradiso Trip3The bride in Mary Katrantzou escorted by her father down the aisle

A belated postcard from Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is in order, though it’s impossible to sum my amazing trip down to 9 photos. Four days of celebrating a friend’s dream wedding with a wonderful group of people seemed to be just what the doctor ordered.

The beautiful bride, Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster (founder of the Walkabout Foundation), was absolutely radiant in a fantastic creation by Mary Katrantzou, which was in fact Katrantzou’s first bridal creation ever.

As for myself I mostly sticked to the british designers this time around, and wore shorts by Charlie May and a top by Balenciaga, green dress by Amanda Wakeley, and a blue dress by Victoria Beckham.

Postcard from Laos

Laos Insta

Hello everyone, hope you’ve all been good!

Here’s a very delayed postcard from my wonderful trip to Laos where I did nothing else than chillin with my family and friends, enjoyed one of the best cuisine’s I know, touristed, and relaxed in spa’s. Laos has a soft spot in my heart and if you’re tempted to visit a beautiful country which still has that untouched and wild thing to it, then I can strongly recommend you to go, but hurry, things are changing rapidly over there these days.

I just got back to London this morning and I’m so(!) ready to put summer holidays and bikinis behind and roll up those sleeves, work and fashion month here we come!!!

Postcard from Sardinia

Northern Light-Postcard from Sardinia

Good morning world, I hope you’re doing perfectly well in the heat of July!
Sorry for the absence, but I’m still soaking up sunny “holy” days in Sardinia and have been quite cut-off the digital world the past few days (sloooow internet speed….). Anyway, until I get other divisors than my iPhone working down here, (watched pots never boils!), you can always find me on Instagram, @hedvigso is still my name. Have a wonderful Monday!!!!
Puss puss!

Arrivederci

Northern Light-Beach2

Ok, now it’s finally my turn to pack the essentials and head for a heavily needed holiday on a beach with my little family. Relaxing beach life here we come, only one thing missing though, easy-going beach literature that is possible to combine with constantly keeping an eye on my little princess. Any tips you’d like to share please please do so.
Arrivederci and see you in Sardinia!

Tod’s in Marche

Iphone images

This week I was given a tour around Tod’s beautiful headquarter and factory based in Marche in Italy. Little did I know how the actual production of shoes really takes place, and found it so cool following the dedicated handcraft all the way from the drawing board to the final result carefully wrapped in a box. If you ever have your ways through this area at some point I highly recommend you to stop by the factory outlet where you’ll find everything from classic Tod’s Gomminis to bags for a very good penny.

Oslo

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!

Brrrrr….

I’ve had a lovely couple of days in Oslo though I had totally forgot what -14 degrees felt like(!). My solution has been being pampered at my mum’s and enjoyed several cups of gløgg, welcome chilly December!

Kill the Night!

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!!!

Tranquilo

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!

Santorini

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!

Hidden gems

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.

Outfit worn one evening when I headed for dinner at Cyprus last week,  silk dress by Phillip Lim, booties by Dolce & Gabbana, bracelet Marni for H&M and watch Tagheuer.

Light travel

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.

Pont de Solférino

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.
