Me and other fabulous Scandinavian ladies Sofi Fahrman and Anine Bing, share our thoughts and tips about clothes during pregnancy. You’ll find the whole article here.
Dungarees may be a hard one to swallow for some but I’ve been craving a pair ever since I spotted Phillip Lim’s gorgeous leather resort 2013 version, and the green pair that strutted down his SS13 runway back in September. Some may think of it as typical preggy wear, well I don’t, but I do admit it’s quite comfortable these days indeed, and I’ve practically lived in my maternity versions lately.
Anyway, for those of you without a 8 month+ baby bump, this one is my absolute lux favourite, and these and these are great budget alternatives out there right now, ideally styled with a simple loose tee or plaided shirt and sharp pumps.
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!!!
Happy Monday noon folks!
Winter has hit London town and we’ve had days of snow and minus degrees for the first time in ages. Though it hasn’t been the brightest light it’s kind of ok, the wet snow I mean, though I’m sure many find it quite frustrating sartorial wise. Well, on my side I don’t really bother as I already feel quite limited, and can’t really fit into much anylonger other than my “every day-uniform”, stretchy dresses, coats and boots. I’m afraid there won’t be many colourful “new” outfit posts here until my baby is due, which feels a little frustrating being who I am and seeing the new fabulous season hitting stores.
Anyway, this duvet parka by Acne, that gives you the feeling of being wrapped up in a blanket, has ended up being one of my best buys for this winter, perfect for chilly days!

I know how to appreciate a great biker jacket when I see one, and it feels like I’ve been searching around forever for a more oversized model with a little length. So when I came across this beauty by Joseph on sales the other day I didn’t hesitate very long. Except for the soft leather I guess I fell for the collar which makes it a little more snuggy and dressy in a way. As for the oversize feature I have no other choice than wait until my pregnancy is over, oh mid February may you come quicker than soon!
Wool dress by IRO (on sales here), new leather jacket by Joseph (on sales), tights by Wolford, boots by Isabel Marant, snood by American Vintage, bag by Chloe (similar here) and old leather gloves from H&M.
I dont’ know why, but for some reason I find it almost impossible to find chic iphone 5 cases these days (did you hear that all brands out there!). And since I’m neither into rabbit ears nor funny dog faces, this printed case by Weston does the job for now for a reasonable price of £33. Bag by Acne.
Woop woop, hope you all had a fabulous weekend so far, and luckily there’s still some time left of it. Sadly the London weather hasn’t been very generous lately, cloudy and grainy, and I can’t recall when we last experienced blue skies, which make me almost miss the clear, bright and cold Scandinavian winters (well, just almost!).
Anyway, this is how I looked last week on an active day out and about in town, hence the footwear and comfy layers. Wishing you all a great Sunday noon!
Today my pale wintery feet jumped into my new graphic python gommino’s that I posted about before Christmas (love, love, love them!). Many of you have asked me where to find these limited edition pair amongst others, and now Tod’s has finally launched an European e-commerce on their website, where you’ll find these beauties if interested, and SS13 collections available from end of January.
Many thanks for uplifting words on my previous outfit post, and great feedback regarding honesty, something I intend to keep all the way (no conspiracy club here no).
Bodycon midi dresses are btw new favourites in my wardrobe, and super comfy with an expanding bump. Except for a few midi dresses I already had I’ve bought some extras on the high street just to have more options, and as long as they are stretchy there’s no need to look in the maternity departments(!), just saying.
Ok gotta run, late dinner out in town, wishing you all a fabulous eve!
If I said I love getting dressed these days I would be lying, I can easily forget about most things in my wardrobe for now, except from a very few jeans, tops and dresses that are sort of being circulated. And while we are at it, telling the truth I mean, it’s not always easy to embrace all changes to your body while your reflection in the mirror is moving further and further away from yourself.
BUT, being blessed with a strong health, a good spirit, and the light at the end of the tunnel coming closer makes up for it all (something I’m being told all the time!).
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend and have one or two on me, yeah!
Ok, I just had a serious overdose of myself putting together 60 of my own everyday outfits from 2012, before and after my baby bump came along, but in “true-blogger-spirit” I guess I goes with the territory right.
I usually don’t look back in time but rather stay focused on the present moment or looking ahead, but on this day I guess it’s inevitable. 2012 has been a fantastic and exciting year in every way and 2013 looks like it’s gonna be great too, if not eve better, both privately and professionally, and if everything goes according to plan I’ll be welcoming my little baby in February, frightening, surreal and wonderful at the same time.
As for you my dearest readers, I wish you and your loved ones all the best for 2013 and may wonderful things happens on your side too. Have a good one tonight and I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Half Christmas over already and I wish I could drag it out a little more. The London weather has been everything but Christmassy, mild and wet, but there’s definitely something in that saying “home is where your heart is”, and my heart has been in London with my family.
Outfit-wise I haven’t been up to much exciting, but my love for dress-coat-and boots continues. For a change I jumped into a drop waist dress the other day which was intentionally meant to be loose, but at least I can’t blame the the Christmas joy of food for not being so. I wore a silk dress by Topshop Boutique (similar here), tights by Wolford, boots by Acne, new coat by Vanessa Bruno Athe, bag by Proenza, watch by Michael Kors, rings and bracelet by Monica Vinader and De Beers.
Only 4 days left before Christmas but right now there’s not much reminding me of one, I can forget all about the snow yes, but 8 degrees rainy-grey-London-skies are just depressing (!). Not relying on the weather I opt to make it really cozy at home, which is my first Christmas over here and the first time family comes over from Norway to join (lots of 1′sts!), yeah! Now, getting my place ready, hoping all deliveries will arrive on time including the tree, and that the Christmas spirit will find it’s way to my new home just in time.
Outfit worn on a much brighter day, I wore an oversized wool jumper (worn as dress) by Cos, tights by Wolford, coat by Mango, new cashmere scarf by Vassilisa, boots by Isabel Marant, rings by De Beers and bag (on sale) by Proenza Schouler.
Yesterday eve me and my bump took a break from all Christmas turmoil, preparations and overloaded mailboxes, and jumped into an all black outfit, a pair of Jimmy Choo’s, and my new gifted, gorgeously studded Valentino clutch (it’s actually an Ipad bag), and we all had a fab night out on town, heavily needed!
