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!
Happy Monday noon everyone!
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.
If you like me, expect nothing less than an solid injection of inspiration everytime Phoebe Philo serves a new collection for Celine, then you won’t be disappointed this time around either. Though I have to admit not every look are my cup of tea, there are certainly those who are. I especially like the play of contrasting structures and the unfinished feel that many of the pieces have, which make it less perfect, cooler and so effortless elegant.
Favourite piece: The black mesh dress with pockets (Olalla, I’m in love!).
See the whole collection here.
Thanks a lot for your best wishes the other day, I survived my little emergency, going through some torture for feeling so much better afterwards was definitely worth it!
Anyway, this time of year it’s usually about transitional dressing, which is my favourite time, when you can wear fall’s new skirts, dresses, coats and boots with bare legs. Personally I’m so into dark, rich colours this coming season, especially royal hues, but I’ll wait a little longer before I’ll bring them all out in the shape of a fall wardrobe, after all it’s still 24 degrees out there.
Old mohair cardi by Acne, jeans by Current?Elliott, shoes Miu Miu, bracelet Hermes and bag by Celine.
Another week has flown away and tomorrow I’m heading for my first vacation in ages, 1 week in Cyprus with family, can’t wait to feel burning sand between my toes, feeling the sea breeze and stroll around in hardly-there-fabrics.
Well, as London is back to it’s usual London-weather we haven’t been overwhelmed by heat lately, but shorts and long sleeves have been working sort of, so I’ve added a few new pieces to my wardrobe, like this super soft angora jumper by Acne and lace shorts from Topshop. I wore them earlier this week with shoes by Camilla Skovgaard, bag by Celine, watch Tagheuer and sunnies by Ralph Lauren.
Wishing you all a fab Thursday eve!
Yeah, we’ve been blessed with gorgeous summery weather in London this week and a little over night I had to move from a fall mood into summer again. Luckily a few of the pieces I’ve bought lately can easily be used in 30 degrees heat as on cooler days, this new “clever skirt” by Isabel Marant with an elastic waistline and pockets is one of them. Easy to throw on when you’re on the go, perfect to roll and carry along in a bag, and will work just as well with tights when those days come. As for now I’ll wear it with easy summery tanks and tops to avoid a melting process.
Images taken the other day, I wore tank by Balenciaga, skirt (dress here) by Isabel Marant, shoes by Prada, bag by Celine and Ray Ban’s.
Sorry for bad posting the last couple of days, but I’ve had family visiting and wanted to soak up my time with them. Being a “tourist guide” and having to walk countless miles requires a practical outfit and comfortable shoes, so this weekend I’ve let my higher heels rest. Ah oh, we’ve had clear skies in London 2 whole days now, with temperatures still rising, perhaps we’ve finally get our forever-longed-for-summer. Being very optimistic about the latter I wish you all a bright and happy Monday morning!
Knit by YSL, skirt from Asos, sneakers from Ash, bag by Celine, bracelet Cooee and Ray Ban’s.
Ok I know, jumper and jeans again, but oh I wish it wasn’t so, I’d rather sport shorts, cute tops and summery dresses in London, wishful thinking these days. Anyway in order to “lift” what has become my uniform this summer, I jump into a pair of good looking heels, going all over practical would just make this whole Northern Europe weather scenario even more sad.
Yesterday’s outfit, I wore jeans and belt by Isabel Marant, cotton jumper by Topshop Boutique, sandals by Prada, bag Celine and Ray Ban’s
