A basic parade

All of a sudden it got a little cooler in the London air and it’s time to bring those great basics out again. It’s certainly not revolutionary, but to me nothing beats the combo of a good knit, denims and a pair of beautiful heels. Right now I wouldn’t mind additions to my pile on cashmere V-necks, my basic favourite number 1.
Happy Sunday out there!

Rings!!!

Ring-wise this spring was all about stacked chunky golden rings thanks to Balenciaga. My ring inspo for fall are these nail rings from Chanel’s Haute Couture A/W collection, beautiful, but lightyears from being practical, glue anyone?

Friday

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.

Today I’ve been feeling totally blank and lacking of inspiration, on these days I prefer looking into “emptyness” and geometric landscapes. Hopefully my brain, body and soul are back fully tomorrow, happy Wednesday eve out there!

A peek

Loving fashion documentaries, and are curious about Carine Roitfeld’s soon to be launched Mademoiselle C, directed by Fabien Constant? Then here’s a little glimpse on what’s to come, yeah!

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 (herehere and here), silver star necklace by Cooee, ring by Monica Vinader and sunnies by Tom Ford.

Boudoir

I’m loving the boudoir’ish feel of Louis Vuitton’s A/W collection and a slinky dress with spaghetti straps is certainly on my wish list this fall, the hunt has officially started!

Flat summer

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?

Coco Chanel by Pike

Chanel-Coco Chanel

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!!!

On the night I wore a silky dress and bag by Acne (pre-fall 2013), shoes by Saint Laurent (herehere and here), and loads of favourite diamond pieces by Monica Vinader.

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!

Postcard from Sardinia

Northern Light-Postcard from Sardinia

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!!!!
Puss puss!
