T Ahoy

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!

Monica Vinader + Hedvig


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.

As part of our collaboration, you will also have the chance to win a ‘Create Your Own’ necklace combination worth £250 and an engravable Ava friendship bracelet by simply doing the following:

1. Tell us what you would have engraved on your Ava Bracelet and why by either
2. Commenting on this post or
3. Tweeting @MonicaVinader and @HedvigSO using #MVLights

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!

CHANEL

 Chanel.com

I’m somehow on the fence when it comes to Chanel bags, my good old 2.55 is brought into daylight less and less often, and I’m not convinced about the Boy either. The wallet bag on another note is more discreet and doesn’t feel “too much” in everyday life, should we strike?

Smock

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?

Picks

Sort of obsessing with these new season pieces, a girl can always make room for a gorgeous blouse by Balenciaga, loose leather trousers and a pair of Marant heels right!

I like men, and I like overalls(!), but never thought I would fall for this combination. However Hermes menswear convinced the opposite, and if I could I wouldn’t mind slipping into this outfit as we speak, happy Monday!

Double

I find myself sporting double denim quite often, a combo I never seem to be tired off, being a jeans girl and all. I got this denim shirt by Celine 2 years ago and have worn it countless times with other denim pieces (here a long time ago), and it’s definitely one of my wardrobe staples and was really worth the investment for sure.

Meanwhile other denim pieces come and go, and since a girl can never get enough jeans(!), new-ins are these super soft jeans by Koral.

Tod’s in Marche

This week I was given a tour around Tod’s beautiful headquarter and factory based in Marche in Italy. Little did I know how the actual production of shoes really takes place, and found it so cool following the dedicated handcraft all the way from the drawing board to the final result carefully wrapped in a box. If you ever have your ways through this area at some point I highly recommend you to stop by the factory outlet where you’ll find everything from classic Tod’s Gomminis to bags for a very good penny.

Soft stretch-lace

Hanky Panky has been one of my favourite lingerie brands for years and I’m loving these fresh colours that I wouldn’t mind adding to my little collection, mission for this weekend perhaps! If interested yourself you’ll find them here.

Checked


Hello there, I’m very sorry for the absence, but I’ve been pretty stuck with technical problems lately, you know the not so funny ones when your laptop and camera(!) decide not to play along. Sorting it out on your own with a baby in your arms doesn’t really help, though my daughter is a patience trouper, bless!

Anyway, I’ve got this love for relaxed dresses lately, and this one’s a new favourite. In fact I wouldn’t mind having one in every colour, as it’s just so versatile and perfect to roll up in a weekend bag, which is in fact what I’ve been doing today, but that’s another story, see you in Italy and remember you can always find me on Instagram, arrivederci!

Easy

Jeans+shirt, an unbeatable combo of mine, worn with sandals is probably what you would most likely see me in if we run into each other this summer. Not complicated at all, just like me, wishing you a fabulous Friday noon superstars!

Leopard

Leopard never seem to leave the spotlight and one or two leopard pieces “should” be included in every wardrobe, and sales periods are the perfect time to keep your eyes open for classic leopard additions. This knitted jumper with a graph back by Stella McCartney is certainly a clear favourite of mine, and will be perfect for fall 2013. If interested you’ll find it here and here.
