It’s Friday and if my plans for tonight had been slightly more glamorous than they actually are, I wouldn’t have mind at all jumping into this outfit as we speak, deeply in love with this blouse!
I’m so into my denim pieces these days and have pretty much worn all my favourite denim pieces this past week, mixed with old and new accessories. In this case my new cat eyes by Celine, and these floral pumps that will be perfect to spice up a pair of worn-out denims, a white shirt, and coat when it gets cooler.
For now we’re still blessed with summer in London (hurra!), so I’ll push those thoughts of coats further away, but we all know we can’t wait too long to get our hands on the best pieces for fall, so ‘my-favourite-coats-picks’ are coming up here soon.
Good Monday morning world!
It’s mid August any day soon, and while many of you have perhaps already felt that shift in the air, and are more than ready for fall days to come (especially wardrobe-wise), I feel absolutely no urge on my side. New seasons stuff like heavy knitwear and locked up boots will have to wait as I’m way too busy enjoying what’s left of summer.
Hence, I’m not sporting the most creative new looks these days, but hey, cropped denims and checked shirts are timeless staples right.
Shirt by Dries Van Noten, new Topshop shorts, lace boots by Dolce & Gabbana, belt by Acne, bag by Givenchy (here, here and here), silver star necklace by Cooee, ring by Monica Vinader and sunnies by Tom Ford.
I love my leather wallets by Neri Karra and I’ve got this two coloured one to give away to one of you readers. All you need to do is comment on this post, no motivation needed, as I’ll pick a “winner ” randomly. You can comment until Friday 16′th when I will announce a winner, enterings worldwide are accepted, good luck you all!!!
After fantastic days in Sardinia I’m back on the concrete with whites and pale colours on my mind, which are perfect for the high temperatures we’re still blessed with in London. Though I’ve invested in and eyeing gorgeous new heels for my wardrobe, I pretty much swear to flats when I’m on the run these days. In the summer heat, and hectic days with work and my little girl in my arms it’s the obvious alternative. Flats me, hehe, who would have thought?
Like many out there I find Coco Chanel almost obsessively fascinating, everything from her life story, controvercy, style and heritage. And I will certainly head over to London College of Fashion between 5th of September to November 16 to feed my curiosity a little more, where 5 portraits of Coco Chanel painted by Californian artist Marion Pike will be exhibited. The exhibition will explore the friendship between the artist and Coco, and alongside paintings, Chanel garments worn by the Pike will also be displayed.
Hello dear readers!
I’m back from sun and sandy beaches in Sardinia, instead facing heavy rainfall in London this moment(!), contrasts in life they say.
Anyway, as you may remember I hosted a joint shopping evening in collaboration with Monica Vinader, in their store on South Molton Street, a few weeks ago, and here are some picks from the fabulous night. I would like to thank all of you who could make it to the event, and it was lovely to finally meet so many of you face to face.
The lucky winner of our competition was Alexandra, and because of the great number of contestant and inspiring motivations, we also announced a runner up, Lucreti, congrats to both of you ladies! To the rest of you, thank you so much for participating, you’re the best!!!
I’m living beach life at the moment but London is getting closer and I’m starting to feel ready for some fall pieces. High on my wishlist this season is certainly one of Stella McCartney’s knitted jumpers (every single one of them please!), that I wouldn’t mind pairing with these other beauties, wish!
Good morning world, I hope you’re doing perfectly well in the heat of July!
Sorry for the absence, but I’m still soaking up sunny “holy” days in Sardinia and have been quite cut-off the digital world the past few days (sloooow internet speed….). Anyway, until I get other divisors than my iPhone working down here, (watched pots never boils!), you can always find me on Instagram, @hedvigso is still my name. Have a wonderful Monday!!!!
Ok, now it’s finally my turn to pack the essentials and head for a heavily needed holiday on a beach with my little family. Relaxing beach life here we come, only one thing missing though, easy-going beach literature that is possible to combine with constantly keeping an eye on my little princess. Any tips you’d like to share please please do so.
Arrivederci and see you in Sardinia!
Beach towel my Missoni (here and here), espadrilles by Celine, bikini by Melissa Odabash (also here), sunnies by Tom Ford, shirt by Helmut Lang, denim shorts by MiH, and sun protector for hair by Kerastase.
As usual Vogue Paris offers loads of inspiration for fall in their august issue, and I’m specially loving this “Chelsea Girl” editorial with super wearable looks styled by Veronique Didry, that includes just the right amount of mods vibes and boyish vampiness!
