Summertime Sadness

We’re getting there slowly, that time of summer when it gradually changes, you feel it in the air, the flowers are not strutting as much as they did a month back, friends and family gatherings are calling for reality, and in London yellow leaves already started falling. One month too early in my opinion but luckily there’s still a few more exciting escapes on my agenda before it’s time to roll up those sleeves. For those of you who’s got no more trips left, bless, and may August still be fabulous!

Meanwhile, the little clothes I’ve been wearing lately when I haven’t enjoyed beach life can be summed up by these loose jeans and blingy sandals. MiH jeans (also here and here), top by Celine, sandals by Marni (also here), watch by Larsson & Jennings, Ray Ban’s.

Earthy colours

Picks 10.08.2014

I don’t know about you, but I find myself drawn towards everything but loud colours and screamy prints these days. Right now I wouldn’t mind adding more earthy tones to my wardrobe, and these are perfect elements for transitional dressing coming up soon.

Diamonds & Signatures

August, I’m not sure what happened, but I guess losing track on time is a good sign when you’re holidaying, and that explains my absence here lately, amongst technical problems that resulted in several Mac-attacks for a while.

Well, I’m kicking off my August (and may it never end!) with my love for diamonds and personalised jewellery. As you may have noticed I’m a true fan of subtle pieces, and practically wear them every day, some which I never take off, same goes for my little girl. Though I’m a minimalist at heart my weakness are diamond pieces, and if I ever get close to over-accessorise I blame my love on them sparkling little things that I love combining with other special engraved pieces, #MYLOVE for those who might have noticed already.

Being a knit-kinda-girl I’m super excited about all the fabulous knit options and statement pieces that will rule this coming fall and winter. Can we ever get enough of oversized long-sleeved soft turtlenecks, me think not, and I’m more than tempted to go for an all knitted set too, yum!

Though I know many of you out there are addicted to the sweat, pain, and released endorphines that goes hand in hand with organised training, being honest, I’m certainly not one of them. However, we do what we gotta do, and number one thing to get me motivated to kick off a training session is fabulous sportswear, being honest again, it does count a whole lot if you’re as undedicated like me.

When I recently teamed up with Net-a-Porter’s newly launched lifestyle category Net-a-Sporter, who’s got an amazing selection of everything from gym wear to loungewear brands, I chose the most natural location, my childhood playground in the north of Norway. Except for feeling strong, beeing physical in wild nature has always given me a feeling of weightlessness and is fantastic for clearing your mind. Highly recommended you lovely ones, in style, lets get started shall we?

Happy mid July from sunny summery London!
Holiday season is just around the corner and right now I personally can’t wait for a city break and spend weightless days on the seaside. As part of my new mantra I’m opting to pack as light as possible, optimistically bringing along only one knitwear as a throw-on on cooler evenings, wish me luck!

Cropped days

I love a pair of cropped trousers, in fact I’m not an owner of anything that falls below my mid leg anymore, wide cropped, slim cropped, jeans cropped, and add cropped tops along with it throughout the summer. However, the trend barometer might say longer leg lengths come fall 2014, but lets wait shall we.
Hoping the sun is shining on you too!

It’s summer in the city, the tan and freckles are back on, and I’m fully enjoying by letting my skin breathe to the max, the behold and wellbeing of summer months.

Sartorial-wise I’ve been living in this jumpsuit, perfect on the daily run with sandals and easy to dress up with heels and a blazer, another all-rounder, yup, life doesn’t need to be so complicated, who’s got time for it?

When in Olso last week while being blessed by fantastic summery weather a trip to Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen felt elementary. Enjoying fresh seafood, wine and ice-cream in the capital’s harbour is highly recommended while touristing on a warm summer day, watching the slow chilled speed of people and boat traffics, add that to your destination list if you need an escape from tumultuous city life.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
