black & white

This weekend I’ve just been chilling at home, after a busy week my body and brain just needed to recharge, hence I didn’t feel inspired to get dressed at all, like on Saturday when I ran out to meet my friend David for a coffee, though I was tempted to leave the house in pyjamas and slippers I grabbed for my old cropped denims and favorite oversized knit, yes, we all have those days don’t we?

Cropped denims by Acne, knit YSL, Jimmy Choo Lana sunglasses, shoes Camilla Skovgaard and bag by Celine.

Mini necklaces

To those of you who follow my blog it’s not a secret that I’m fan of Cooee’s plexi bracelets which are cool pieces for a good penny. As for necklaces I like it extremely simple, everyday jewellery that is delicate and almost invisible, like these beautiful mini necklaces, a collab between Anine Bing and Cooee that comes in silver, rhodinated and gold.

I want you!

While we are at it, dreaming of Cannes and other beautiful things out of reach, I wouldn’t mind jumping into this outfit right now to stroll around in a half cloudy London. Unfortunately I don’t have any of these goodies within a short distance, well, one of them will be soon though, hello parcel where are you?

Wishing you all a fabulous Sunday noon!

If I ever…

Ok, if I ever will step on the red carpets in Cannes I wouldn’t mind wearing this green dream from Gucci’s A/W 12-13 collection. And the simple styling of Natasha Poly is just heavenly perfect!

Brocade

On the 17th of May I celebrated the Norwegian Constitution day with 2 other fab Scandi girls, like once every year we carried around small Norwegian flags and had so much fun, dinner a The Botanist followed by a bar to bar round in Chelsea.
Like many other Norwegian’s I have a national suit called bunad, which to many fellow countrymen is the way to dress on the 17th of May, well, I’ve to admit mine haven’t been worn for more than 10 years and it’s safely stored in my mums closet in Oslo, hehe, sorry mum!

Anyway I jumped into this outfit, at least I wore something white and blue, I wore an old brocade skirt from Zara, shirt by Acne, leather bomber Topshop, shoes Alexander Wang, clutch Helmut Lang and Ray Ban’s.

Beachy Svarovski’s

These glittery things are perhaps not meant for strolling around in the city but Havaianas have always been been my choice as soon as I enter a sandy beach. Though bling bling isn’t really my thing I wouldn’t mind these Swarovski bejeweled versions from Havaianas exclusive collection next time heading for the beach, yours for £160.

Denims for Editer

Yesterday I picked my favorite jeans in store now and styled them in various ways for Editer shot by sweetie Shini Park. As I find it hard to return all of these perfectly fitting denims back to Donna Ida, I’m strongly considering getting some of them myself, but how to choose? You can see the whole series on flared, printed, boyfriend and cropped jeans on Editer in a few weeks.

Front & Back

This year Vogue has stripped down their summer covers for June and July fronted by our times “supers”. Nathalie Vodianova fronts Vogue Russia June issue, and the most talked about Gisele Bundchen’s more provocative butt-in-sand-cover for Vogue Paris June/July lensed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. I love them both in different ways and isn’t a great thing that when they strip down covers like this they choose 2 healthy looking models, both mums and have long successful careers behind them?

Mini + Oversized


I know, I’ve totally fallen for the sporty vibes, in fact I haven’t been this “sporty’ish” since I quit my alpine career years ago, but who can blame me, these sneakers are just to comfortable once they are on. Anyway, I jumped into this laid back outfit on a sunny Sunday, brunching with a friend in South Ken, and until the true summer is here and I can wear my mini’s and shorts with big loose jumpers (a favorite combo!), I’ll pair them with oversized jackets.

Have a lovely day everyone!

Knitted jumper Mango, coat Topshop Boutique, denim skirt  and sunglasses by Acne, wedged sneakers from Ash, bracelet Cooee and bag by Celine.

Rainy shoes

Eehh, did I say spring the other day? Ok, I won’t lay down and demonstrate by a little rain, but when risking being impaled by my own umbrella cause of crazy wind throws from up and below, while carrying 3 heavy bags of groceries, I do , imagine the sight! On days like this my old boots by Marant are champions, and though they are made of leather (just added rubber soles) they haven’t taken any damage, thumbs up!

Resort season

Here we go again, resort collections 2013 have slowly got started, so prepare for a month of new collections and images to be drawling over.
Chanel presented their collection yesterday in the beautiful garden of The Palais de Versailles, and though the collection itself which is more of a crossing between renaissance couture, hiphop and street, and not really my thing, the spectacular show must have been amazing to attend.

Bottega Veneta published images of their collection last week that included sleek tailored monochrome silhouettes. And that tracksuit, I mean, who would turn down a Bottega tracksuit?

Unexpected events

Wow, I had loads of fun this weekend, hanging out with girlfriends I don’t have the chance to see so much in these busy times. It all kicked off on Friday noon with a little shopping, followed by dinner and drinks at various places, and then, well it ended late. Days like that happen to be when I’ve the most fun, when nothing’s planned and everyone is positive and never want the evening to end, thanks girls!

I left home in this outfit that morning with no party plans on my mind, jeans can definitely be a party saver, I wore J Brand jeans, new lace shirt by Acne, parka Isabel Marant, shoes Camilla Skovgaard, bracelet Kenneth Jay Lane, watch Tagheuer, Ray Ban’s and bag Celine.

Mademoiselle C

Did you enjoy ‘The September Issue’ documentary as much as I did, then there’s a chance you’ll also enjoy Mademoiselle C, a french take where Carine Roitfeld have been followed by cameras in the making of her new magazine, C.R Fashion Book, that will be launched in September. It’s said to give an insight into Roitfeld’s both professional and private life and though her former role as Editor-in-Chief at Vogue Paris won’t be in focus I can’t help hoping for juicy revelations.

It’s clear

Sorry guys, I’ve had a small technical problem with my site but now we’re back!

New in are these sunnies by Acne, a fun version of a Wayfarer which happens to be my favorite model. It comes in 6 different colors and I was hesitating between pink and clear, great additions to an all dark sunny collection.

Rainday

Woop woop, hope you’re enjoying this weekend so far, the sun is shining in London and I’ve been able to wear bare legs the whole week, a sign that spring is finally here. Thursday however was grey and, rainy and dull, and I dressed accordingly. Ultimately I would have topped this look with this oversized leather jacket by Balmain, hehe, but I figured out my topshop denim would do until I win a lottery.

Wishing you all a fab Saturday eve!

Top Balmain, old dress from Whistles, new jacket Topshop, booties Acne, bag by Celine and watch Tagheuer.
