New-ins are dreamy ankle boots for me and a carrycot stroller for her, yes it’s a little girl, one in for me and one in for the unborn, a fair balance right! Though the stroller was harder to get than the shoes (waiting lists, I’m not kidding), I’m a lot more excited by the boots, strollers and baby stuff still feel like foreign terrain.
I’m a jeans-shirt-girl at heart and I’m so missing my simple jeans looks, feels like ages ago!!! Well, I assure you I’ll jumping into a pair of perfect skinnies, a slightly unbuttoned silk blouse with rolled up sleeves, a little tuck, and killer heels as soon as I can, and wouldn’t mind any of these pieces to be included. With a long black coat over the shoulders or a duvet bomber I would have been ready to join fashion-month-circus! Btw, loving the silk shirt by H&M (£39.99) so much that I’ll probably get it now and save it for later.
I fell in love with Dries Van Noten’s spring collection as soon as I laid my eyes on it in September, and finally some of the gorgeous pieces, like these highly coveted cotton checked shirts have hit stores. Though we’ve been bombarded with similar styles and copies on the highstreet for months it hasn’t affected my desire to wear checked this spring. Except for the obvious pairing with denim I might also do it the “Dries-way” with florals and silks, and any of these two would be so welcomed by me! Orange shirt £221 and burgundy shirt £455.
Happy Monday noon folks!
Winter has hit London town and we’ve had days of snow and minus degrees for the first time in ages. Though it hasn’t been the brightest light it’s kind of ok, the wet snow I mean, though I’m sure many find it quite frustrating sartorial wise. Well, on my side I don’t really bother as I already feel quite limited, and can’t really fit into much anylonger other than my “every day-uniform”, stretchy dresses, coats and boots. I’m afraid there won’t be many colourful “new” outfit posts here until my baby is due, which feels a little frustrating being who I am and seeing the new fabulous season hitting stores.
Anyway, this duvet parka by Acne, that gives you the feeling of being wrapped up in a blanket, has ended up being one of my best buys for this winter, perfect for chilly days!

Ok, so I admit I might be slightly obsessive about shoes, and as for black boots it seems like there’s always room for another pair in my shoe closet (heart!). When I came across these beauties I died a little, the perfect black high heel ankle boots and biker boots, both by Saint Laurent Paris, and both out of reach for most people mid January, boots-dilemma!!!
Many of the pre-fall collections that usually tend to get me all wow’ing and so did very little for me this time around. Having that said, as to no surprise (to myself at least), like Phoebe Philo, Stella McCartney always delivers and these are my favourites looks, androgynous classic pieces with maxi proportions signed either of these two ladies can hardly go wrong, can they……
I know how to appreciate a great biker jacket when I see one, and it feels like I’ve been searching around forever for a more oversized model with a little length. So when I came across this beauty by Joseph on sales the other day I didn’t hesitate very long. Except for the soft leather I guess I fell for the collar which makes it a little more snuggy and dressy in a way. As for the oversize feature I have no other choice than wait until my pregnancy is over, oh mid February may you come quicker than soon!

Well isn’t there just something with a perfectly cut suit or a tailored look, whether on a man or woman. And ADR, don’t you totally rock that Saint Laurent look!
Loving these shots by-need-no-further-introduction-Tommy Ton for style.com during men’s Fall 2013 ongoing fashion tour, but I’ll also tip you about my friend Lee Oliveira, also on scene, presenting excellent street style photography.
I dont’ know why, but for some reason I find it almost impossible to find chic iphone 5 cases these days (did you hear that all brands out there!). And since I’m neither into rabbit ears nor funny dog faces, this printed case by Weston does the job for now for a reasonable price of £33. Bag by Acne.
Woop woop, hope you all had a fabulous weekend so far, and luckily there’s still some time left of it. Sadly the London weather hasn’t been very generous lately, cloudy and grainy, and I can’t recall when we last experienced blue skies, which make me almost miss the clear, bright and cold Scandinavian winters (well, just almost!).
Anyway, this is how I looked last week on an active day out and about in town, hence the footwear and comfy layers. Wishing you all a great Sunday noon!
Today my pale wintery feet jumped into my new graphic python gommino’s that I posted about before Christmas (love, love, love them!). Many of you have asked me where to find these limited edition pair amongst others, and now Tod’s has finally launched an European e-commerce on their website, where you’ll find these beauties if interested, and SS13 collections available from end of January.
