For fall I want to wear different shades of whites and cremes and that includes a handbag as well. Though I like my bags quite sharp I can’t help loving this little furry beauty from Tod’s A/W 13-14, officially on my wishlist!
Getting dressed for days in a boiling overheated city can certainly be challenging. Though I on certain days much rather stroll around in flip flops, kaftan, a tousled hair bun, and no trace of make up, beach life doesn’t really work in the city.
Shorts and shirts have been my way to go, and these embroidered shorts which in fact are beachwear(!), works just as well in the city paired with a crispy white shirt, as on the beach with a bandeau bikini.
London is boiling(!), so new in for my poor feet are these Ancient Greek troopers, if interested yourself you’ll find them here.
Tonight is the night folks, hope to see as many of you at the event in the Monica Vinader store on South Molton Street, and for those of you who’s physically too far away to attend, don’t forget to use your exclusive 20% off, between 5-8pm today only, using code MVLIGHTS20 here. See you soon!
Ok, I know I’m close to turn this space into a Daria Werbowy fan site right now so I’ll be careful from now on. But in the sea of gorgeous model faces Daria once again is the face of Isabel Marant fall campaign, styled by Marie-Amelie Sauve and photographed by Karim Sadli. I wasn’t personally a fan of Maran’t summer collection but fall is another story. Also see Isabel Marant Etoile ads here for fall inspiration.
North of Norway I love you, but this time around you were to far off the seasonal scale, I’m sorry, but no one up there deserves 12 degrees mid July(!).So back on went leather pants, knits and jackets, between home lounging in pyjamas. On another note I got the chance to jump into my new perfectly baggy leather pants for fall, and a splash of new collection Baja by Monica Vinader, like these stacked rings and bracelet which are new seasons favourites of mine.
And oh, don’t forget to enter my joint competition with Monica Vinader, by letting us now what you’d have engraved and why by commenting here or tweeting @MonicaVinader or @hedvigSO using hashtag #MVLights. Only 2 more days to go sweetie pies!
New leather trousers by Ganni (here and here), cashmere sweater by Dries Van Noten (very similar here), shoes by Chanel (sales bargains!), blazer from & Other Stories, wallet by Neri Karra, watch by Tagheuer and stacked Baja rings and bracelet by Monica Vinader.
I know it’s only mid July, but fall’s already on my mind, and one item I will add to my wardrobe for sure are a pair of relaxed grey wool pants. Paired with a plain cashmere v-neck or something beautifully checked ala Celine and Stella McCartney, fall wouldn’t feel so sad after all.
Morning superstars from a chilly Northern Norway where I’m relaxing with my little girl and family for a week, it’s so cozy to be home and have a break from city life for a few days. However I do miss the fantastic summer I left behind in London on Tuesday, as the contrast to where I’m now couldn’t be any bigger. Anyway, I hope and intend (!) to jump back into summer outfits as soon as I’m back, like these high waisted shorts for instance, a real find at Zara.
Music tee by Acne, shorts from Zara, shoes by Saint Laurent (similar here ), python bag by Tod’s, sunnies by Tom Ford, new Siren ring and Ava diamond bracelet by Monica Vinader, other jewellery Tiffany and Balenciaga.
As you may know my style is quite simple, a tee and a pair of favourite jeans sometimes does it for me, together with the right accessories of course. Playing around with classic pieces is my way to go, and I just cannot get enough of breton striped tops. I’ve practically lived in this linen tee the whole spring, it’s super-soft and has survived through many washes, though it says dry clean only on the tag (why do they do that?).
Anyway, now it’s Sunday, and a lot warmer than when these shots were taken, so a bikini will be my outfit of today. Wishing you all a wonderful chilled Sunday you too!
Jeans by JBrand, T by Alexander Wang, shoes by DelRioLondon (here, here), bracelet by Balenciaga (similar styles here) and bag by Celine. PS: If you’re interested in DelRioLondon slippers, you can always contact the designer directly, please see website for contact details.
As you may know already through my posts I’m quite a fan of Monica Vinader’s jewellery, and since I first walked into the store on South Molton street and got myself an engraved bracelet, I’ve been hooked. I think the idea of having jewellery engraved (Make it Your Own!) makes it all so much more personal, along with the “stacking principle” of Monica’s lines which I also love.
Needless to say that I was thrilled to be approached by the brand to host this event above and a joint reader competition, something I feel very excited about, and which feels like the most natural thing as I’m already such a fan of Monica’s jewellery. I’m therefore pleased to invite all of you lovely readers to come along to an exclusive 20% off shopping evening on the 18th of July. No need to miss out on this offer if you’re not based in London. We are giving my readers 20% to redeem on the Monica Vinader website on the night of the event. Just enter the code cited on the invitation.

I will be in the store on South Molton Street on the day where I will select the winner of the competition where everyone is eligible to enter worldwide, so what are you waiting for? I hope as many of you will make it on the night and join me for shopping, chats, styling, fun, champagne and Scandinavian canapés!
On really hot humid days there’s only one thing that works for me, roomy light airy dresses, whether it’s in “beach-land” or in the concrete jungle. This little budget cutie from Asos works just as well on those days and looks great with boots and knitted cardigans when cooler days come, but lets hope they stay away a long time shall we?
