Holiday picks

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.

Paisley

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.

La Kohn

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.

Peaceful window

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.

New T-shirt dress from Zara, sandals and sunnies by Celine

On hold

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!!!

Via Borromei

Ok, I’m heading back to London to get some work done before I repack my suitcase for Paris in a couple of days. Didn’t have much time for shopping in Milan but a quick trip by the Celine store on via Montenapoleone resulted in something that I’ve wanted for years, Christmas in February!

Norway

Yeah, I’m ready to go home, early flight tomorrow morning. This time packing was surprisingly organized and an easy task, 70% warm knitwear and a few dresses, cause where I’m heading there’s not much need of more, our country house, ok, I included a couple of heels too.
Just to give you guys a clue, when I arrive at the final airport I’ll need to take a small boat crossing a fjord to the final destination in complete darkness and silence. And by this time tomorrow eve I’ll be warming up in an outdoor jacuzzi watching the Northern Light.

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas holiday and I’ll see you in Norway!

Right now

When on holiday a toes+in+the+horizon (or sand)+shot is obligatory, despite how your feet look. Sorry for bad posting the last few days but I’ve spent the last 24 hours sleeping. Now, I’m finally rested and have time to look through all pre-collections so far, I’ll give you an update and send you a postcard from Tenerife later on. Happy Friday everyone!

I want to go back

It’s not even December yet and I’m already hungering for a sun bed, pool and chilling. I haven’t had a proper off-holiday since April and I guess that’s the reason why it starts to sneak up on me early this winter. However I did get a little holiday feel during fashion week in NY, I stayed at the wonderful hotel Dream Downtown, the weather was absolutely gorgeous, and though I had busy days it was the perfect place to lean back from the hectic life outside, lobster cobb salad by the pool every morning, oh I want to go back…..

Rue de Rivoli

Yes, I ended up missing the whole Celine event this noon so I headed over to the Tuileries for breakfast along Rue de Rivoli while waiting for the next show. One of my favorite things in Paris is to sit outdoor on a bistro observing life around and that’s exactly what I did in the summery sun this noon.

US Open

Yesterday late noon I took a fashionable break from fashion and rushed to the hotel for a quick change for the US Open single men’s finale. Though I’m not a massive fan of tennis being there was magical and I was cheering Djokovic all way through (sorry to my Spanish readers).

Oki, gotta run again and I’m looking forward to Tibi’s show later today, you haven’t missed out that the Swedish blogger, Elin Kling, is styling it, I’m sure she’ll kick ass!

I wore skirt by Lord&Taylor, top and blazer Acne, shoes and sunnies Celine, bag Chanel and jewellery like before.

Dream Downtown

Just got back into my hotel room after missing a show, realized in a cab I wouldn’t make it and turned back, damn! Well, on the good side the hotel I’m staying in, Dream Downtown, is fantastic and though the view up from the window (a hole in the wall) isn’t the best it’s pretty good if you look down.
Now, Fashion’s Night Out, have fun!

Postcard

This weekend I also spent time in a beautiful village called Thonon on the french side along Lake Geneva, a perfect spot to calm down, relax and enjoy wonderful food, and the Salad de Chevre was probably the best I’ve ever tried. I’ll post some outfit images later on, have a lovely sunny monday noon!

Chilling in Evian

Right now I’m chilling in Evian by Lake Geneva, I wasn’t totally sure where I was going on this trip but it’s such a beautiful, relaxing and quiet place. Except for tanning, eating, drinking and finishing off some work, I also went on a wonderful boat trip on the lake, which made me long for my home city in Norway, the place my heart has been this past week…..

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Miami

My few days in Miami went so quickly so I didn’t have any time posting from there but I had a lovely time indeed. On the first day we were surprised with heavy rain so we decided to explore the shopping facilities in town and ended up at Bal Harbour Shops, a shopping mall with excellent shopping and small restaurants. I usually don’t fancy malls but this one was in fact a beautiful one, highly recommended.
The last day we enjoyed the rays by our pool at Delano on South Beach, lunching with friends and boom, the fairy tale was over this time around, but it was a damn good one.

Now, time to catch up on real life, but first a highly missed noodle soup in London’s China town!
