Double up!

Pink, perhaps the colour of 2013, and spring 2014? Yup, some pink pieces have found their way to my wardrobe too, and I particularly love this skirt by Carven, where the thick wool fabric sort of has a life on it’s own. It has various styling possibilities, and goes with everything, perhaps not so much with black tights, but time will see.

Outfit worn a few weeks back, today a totally different story, winter has arrived, so Happy Chilly Sunday noon world!

Hermès Attelage

Hermes Attelage Bracelet

The coming season is trending towards eccentric statement jewellery, especially big chunky bracelets in all varieties and colours. I personally prefer mine more on the sleek side though, and wouldn’t mind this new addition in the Hermès family, the Attelage bracelet, a minimal beauty in rose gold and silver, yum!

Yesterday The Oxford Dictionaries announced that the Word of The Year 2013 is ‘selfie’, a term that most social media users are more than familiar with.
Just like Matthew Schneier at, I find the list of runners up a lot more interesting, like the term showrooming for instance. I admit I showroom from time to time for various reasons, but had no idea these actions had a name.
Do you showroom?

showrooming: the practice of visiting a shop or shops in order to examine a product before buying it online at a lower price. [ORIGIN early 21st century: from SHOWROOM ‘a room used to display goods for sale’.]

Bare legs in November? Yup, that has been totally possible in London without freezing your legs off. I’m not the one who spend my outdoor life in a cab (!), but with layers of wool, cashmere and a coat, bare legs has worked surprisingly well this mild season. However it’s inevitable, and as temperatures are dropping the dreaded tights(!), will eventually be put back on again, but until then I’m channeling my inner viking!

Laurence Dacade

Laurence Dacade Merli Boots

My “shoe-regret” this season was never laying my hands on a pair of Laurence Dacade leather boots, perfectness! However this patchwork version is pretty hot as well, but requires a deep pocket dig I’m afraid, yours for £690, eek!

STELLA MCCARTNEY Julia stretch set

Who’s not in on comfy dressing? Well, I am for sure, and I raise my hand for monchrome dressing too! Totally fell in love with this new set while trying it on (in blue), and I can’t wait to wear it out for drinks paired with heels or with slippers for a chilling look, hereby my picks of the week in stores, by Stella McCartney Resort and the trousers and blouse come as separates.

Love for checks

This fall is not all about checks ala laundry bags (hello Celine!) and traditional tartan in various colours. Lets not forget about the ‘Prince of Wales’, a timeless plaid that is not that distinctive (and so 2013!) as many of the checks out there at the moment. Hence, this coat is a long time keeper that I’ll also be wearing when we’re all over the “checked era”!

Joseph SS14

Joseph SS2014Joseph SS14

Joseph is one of my favourite british go-to-brands, and after having had a close-up look at the SS14 collection they will retain their position with polished clean cut silhouettes of high quality. Exciting news to other Joseph-fans is that the label will show on the London Fashion Week schedule for the first time in February 2014, and as a minimalist Scandinavian living in London I applaud that!

Tom Wood


Add Norwegian jewellery brand Tom Wood on your radar if you haven’t already. Lust-worthy (!), timeless, solid, unisex rings in sterling silver, gold and quality gemstones (no platings in sight!), are my favourites, but the line also includes necklaces and earpieces, all with an androgynous feel.

No matter what’s going on out there I always come back to the classics, so here we go again. Sporting these cropped suit trousers a lot lately, they are real all rounders that I either wear with the matching blazer or pretty much everything else in my wardrobe.

With memories of days in the City in the back of my head I personally always avoid very tailored pieces like this with a white shirt, while I see others manage to make it look everything but office’y, but I’m up for the challenge.
Happy Sunny Sunday you lovely ones!

Living in knits

London weather has been on the milder side this fall and it has been possible to postpone being all wrapped up, we all know those days are just around the corner though.
With no need of a wintery coat I’ve been practically living in this cashmere knit that I use with anything, like these super soft flared legged jeans by MiH for instance. Most people would perhaps initially pair them with heels, but I got mine cropped to wear with flats, feels much newer in a way I think, and you avoid looking and feeling too costumey.

Nicolas Ghesquière + Louis Vuitton

The former Balenciaga designer, Nicolas Ghesquière, is now finally confirmed as Louis Vuitton’s new creative director after Marc Jacobs recently stepped down after a 16-year long career at the LV mansion. Ghesquiere will present his debut collection in March, and after missing his work the past year, I know where I’ll be looking more closely come next fashion week.

Leave it to Vogue Paris editorials to inspire with trends and pieces you never realised you actually wanted, wide legged avant garde belted trousers likes these for instance, not to mention yet new “Birkenstock-inspired-versions”, well, we can blame Phoebe Philo for the latter.
