Turtle knits have certainly been “my thing” this season, and combined with the weather we’ve been blessed with so far it has allowed us to leave big chunky scarves at home. Wearing lighter colours have also been a conscious “act” of mine, and though I’m pretty much of a black cat, I swear lighter colours sort of brightens up your mood now when days are getting shorter.
Coinciding with my own New Year’s resolution for 2014 (a new fitness regime 2014 here we come!), H&M launches H&M Sport, a full-on activewear range of items for women, men and children. With inputs from athletes from the Swedish Olympic team, the collection emphasis on performance and includes running separates, yoga wear, water repellent pants as well as sports bras. January-pit-stop, H&M it is!
Already one week in of December, November, fall, what happened? Christmas is just around the corner, and a like many of you my list stretches to the moon of things that should be done, well, same procedure as every year I guess. We’ll all get there in the end don’t we, one way or another!
So with that dark cloud of things that I should do hanging over me, I haven’t really put much thought into outfits, and simply relied on basic and comfy all-rounders, but when I think of it that’s what I always do, hehe.
Happy Saturday Everyone!
Altuzarra Pre-Fall 2014, images style.com
Hurra! I’ve been in need for top-up-inspiration lately and just in time, images of the first Pre-Fall 2014 collections are released, don’t we just love capsule collections? Finding myself dreaming of Altuzarra’s clean colour block, knee-length, mules(the heels of 2014!) – looks. All that I wanna wear right now, and we haven’t even got to live through the SS-14 collections with all their prints, metallics, and ethnic hypes yet. The confusion of fashion …
Black Friday, Cyber Monday? Only a few years back I personally had to clue of any, but in these digital and global times you must have been hiding in a cave with no internet connection or been a real anti-shopper at heart if you haven’t snapped it up. My inbox have been full lately with all sorts of sales, offers and discounts than ever before and if you’re an eager online shopper like myself I’m sure yours is too. Now is the time to get those things you’ve been eyeing for long, but never really could justify to pay at full price, let the joyful shopping begin!

Winter chill has slowly arrived and this week I’ve wrapped up in layers of wool. I’ve also rediscovered the practicality of thigh high boots that are the best leg warmers there is, and I have the feeling this pair are gonna be quite useful if this season’s weather forecast comes true. I’ll just make sure to leave my leather mini’s at home!
Oh how we love how a pair of sneakers complete an otherwise not-so-sneaker’ish outfit, don’t we? Loving the styling in Vogue Netherlands December issue, and I seriously need to add a pair of dark coloured Air Max’es to my wishlist below.
It’s that time of year again when it’s allowed to make wishlists way beyond your “needs”, and here are some picks (treats!) that would be very welcomed on my doorstep!
18-karat Gold earrings by Noor Fares, Card holder by Saint Laurent, Dress by Stella McCartney, Camisole by Lover, Diamond Pave ring by Monica Vinader, Morrissey-Autobiography, Roses De Chloe EDT, Lace pumps by Jimmy Choo, Cosmetic bag by Gucci.
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!
