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?
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.
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!

If you are waiting for images from Phoebe Philo’s Resort 2014 collection to drop at style.com or other sites then please don’t hold your breath. According to WWD the Céline house has decided to “do-a-Tom Ford” and keep images of the new collection under wrap for now. And we may all wonder why, or perhaps not (read Zara?).
Meanwhile, we’ve always the fall collection to dream about, the pale knee length skirts, voluminous tops and checked coats for instance, meow…
It’s not often I move over to the lighter colour palette but it does happen in between denim days. I’ve had this bomber jacket for a while now but haven’t really had the chance to use it much, a mesh jacket in a 10 degree London doesn’t sound like a hit right. Anyway, I’ve finally dug it out and it could potentially be the perfect throw-on this summer, if the the higher forces allows it.
London right now, rainy, 12 degrees and almost hostile….
Contrasting to last week when I was up in Oslo and celebrated the Norwegian Constitution Day in the most fabulous weather, who would have thought!
On the day I reached for black shiny surfaces, 2 new additions to my wardrobe, a pair of satin trousers and silk top, which I miraculously managed to keep clean all day through with my little 3 months girl (drooling) in my arms, guess I’m learning.
Happy Monday noon everyone!
I’ve enjoyed my last week in Oslo with family and friends in the most surprisingly gorgeous weather, and haven’t had much time for updates. Stylewise it’s been pretty relaxed and right now I cannot get enough of these super soft dungarees with just the perfect wash.
Little Hedda on the other hand has finally got the chance to wave those little toes free in the air, bless the arrival of summer!
We all have a few staples in our wardrobe that we always tend to grab for, the few items you really love and never seem to get enough of, especially on days your creativity is like non existing. In my case these goodies are as simple as skinny jeans, along with some t-shirts, so basically the most basic you can imagine.
Needless to say I felt glorious happy the other day when I finally managed to slip into my favourite skinnies again after being separated way too long (8 months!), that feeling…..
Wishing you a fabulous Sunday noon and see you in Oslo where I’ll be heading tomorrow!
J Brand jeans, new silk blouse Topshop pre-fall, jacket by Isabel Marant (similar here), shoes by Saint Laurent Paris, bag by Celine, Tag Heuer watch, necklace, rings and bracelet by Monica Vinader, other jewellery De Beers and Balenciaga.
Heeeey darling readers, I hope you are all fabulously well, it’s been a while and I’ve missed this space, 5 weeks in fact, and lots of things have happened on my side ever since.
I’ve finally named my precious 6 weeks old baby girl to Hedda Maly, discovered new meanings to the word multitasking, walked many miles, cut a small fringe, taken a million shots of my little Hedda, added new stuff to my wardrobe come warmer days and pre-preggy shape, spent a lot of time with my mum who has been visiting and helping me (bless!!!), and I have a new Celine darling in my arms.
What unfortunately has not happened so far is the arrival of spring, don’t get me started on last week’s snow in London, and back on are winter coats, scarves and gloves, as if we weren’t tired of this by now. Well, if you like me are tired of the sight of your winter coats and jackets by this point, adding a belt is an easy fix.
Hehe, you know maybe it’s time to capitulate when what used to be one of the most oversized items in your wardrobe starts feeling tight and when you by the end of the day need assistance to get shoes off (!). I’m definitely there, but since I just cannot sit at home waiting for anything to happen, and feel perfectly good when on my feet (heels!), I might even attend a few shows during LFW that kicks off tomorrow, well, we’ll see how it goes.
Anyway, hoop earrings and chunky knitwear are on my sartorial mind these days and if you’re looking for hoop earrings without spending too much you’ll find a great selection at Topshop.
Maternity jeans by J Brand, old YSL knit, leather jacket by Joseph, Topshop earrings, bag by Celine and boots by Saint Laurent Paris.
My everyday outfits these days are pretty far away from Haute Couture, but it’s the reality for most of us and that’s perfectly fine too. This week I’ve been out on the run a lot, and though I’m beyond tired of what’s left in my wardrobe I can still fit into, and my mobility slightly reduced, there’s no point of complaining about it. Instead I choose to focus on the positive things, like my new boots I got this week, that suddenly boosted my spirit a little, the perfect treat.
And now it’s weekend, yeah, wishing you all a fabulous one too!!!
While up in Oslo earlier this week I got a strong reminder of what real winter is about, I once was used to arctic weather, but -19 raw Oslo air, honestly, it was really painful and not very surprisingly the streets were almost empty of people. I wore my duvet winter parka every day, which I guess is the only way to stay warm along with furry boots, except one day, when I bravely stepped out in this cape, sometimes layering of wool work as well, at least if you just rush in and out between stores and cafées.
I sometimes get asked if I plan outfits beforehand, and honestly I don’t, which again is the reason why my travel luggage is heavily overweight as I practically bring along everything on the front shelves of my wardrobe. I’ve always dressed in this organised chaotic way where whatever I feel like on the day slips on. The result however sometimes end up being a complete mismatch of pieces I like when I’m on the run, everything but too planned and “matchy matchy”, just the way I like it!
Btw, I’ve got these new maternity skinny jeans by J Brand, with a super low comfortable elastic panelled waist and otherwise the perfect fit like J Brand’s usually are, genius! Otherwise knit by IRO, new wool coat Hofmann Copenhagen, boots Isabel Marant, bag by Celine and sunnies by Tom Ford.
