Wind…

Hola!!!
While palm trees and sunny beaches are desperately needed this time of year, I’m turning my wings back to home roots in snowy North of Norway, family and serenity come first.

As of now, I’ve never been more pale, but who doesn’t want to get their limbs out on early spring days. Until that longed for beach holiday shows up, and a de-whitening-process and energy boosting can take place naturally, I’m gonna sign up to Mystic Tan Sprays, spa treatments, and other spring treats. My new favourite boots that weirdly enough despite being leopards, that work with pretty much everything in my wardrobe right now, are amongst my later treats. Because we deserve it ladies and gents!!

Pirouettes

Can we ever tire of fine jewellery pieces that in all their simplicity come with an edge too. Danish designer, Sophie Bille Brahe has been one of my personal favourites for years now with her clean fresh water pearls pieces, and rings made for stacking. Latest additions are these 14-karat gold spiral earrings, perfectly understated edgy and delicate, may we have them both please!!!

Rule breaking

Not being afraid of playing around with volumes the selection of wide legged trousers in various shapes in stores right now suits me perfectly well. Some might believe you need to be on the taller side to get away with voluminous silhouettes and wide legged cropped trousers, but we’ve all seen the likes of petite Miroslava Duma kill all those theories recent years.
Apparently I woke up with with the idea of oversizing myself on this specific day, topped with many of my favourite accessories all at once, not caring about a rule in the world…

Mayla Stockholm

MaylaStockholm

Though the world has fallen for the nordic minimalism and effortlessness recent years, it’s can be hard for Scandinavian brands to break through in todays jungle of international brands, unless they have something unique to offer and attractive price points, but that’s also what some of them do best, catering the mid market. Brands like Acne Studios, Dagmar and Day Birger et Mikkelsen have established themselves internationally by filling the gap between high street and luxury levels by offering great quality price points.

But there’s a new girl in town, Mayla Stockholm (www.mayla.se), founded by former model Marlene Abraham, that caught my eye this last year. Offering something not so typical in Scandinavian terms, cool femininity with an edge, like beautiful neat feminine silk blouses and dresses, finely knitted silk jumpers, mini boot flared trousers and culottes with the best of fits, ticking the mid market price range without compromising quality. Watch out for Mayla’s AW15-16 raw denim pieces, favourite denims of mine come fall 2015.

That ’70s Show

Yup, the 70’s vibes are definitely out there as early predicted, and I love the undone freedom spirits that tags along with it. Though you’re not gonna see me taking it all the way in flower power dresses, long fringed bags and flowers in my hair, like many editorials right now are reliving the era instead of translating it to 2015.
This spring however I’m in the mood of sporting flared trousers (yes, I keep going on about it!), cropped or long with silky blouses, more than ever before, what could possible become my new daily uniform, if my beloved skinnies allow it.
Peace man…
