Zig Zag

No matter season and trends, I always come back to the classic pieces, and this season I’ve certainly invested in some of them, like this coat by Stella McCartney, that I after trying on for several seasons, finally decided to strike on. Dusty pink might be huge this season but I personally rather invest in either a black, navy or camel coat, that will last me a long time and not just the coat you wore in 2013.

This is what I wore on one of the London Fashion Week days, before it got too chilly over here. But right now I’m escaping chilly September degrees and hoping for indian summer in Milan, see you all in pasta heaven(!) and wishing you a fabulous weekend!

I’m so into my denim pieces these days and have pretty much worn all my favourite denim pieces this past week, mixed with old and new accessories. In this case my new cat eyes by Celine, and these floral pumps that will be perfect to spice up a pair of worn-out denims, a white shirt, and coat when it gets cooler.
For now we’re still blessed with summer in London (hurra!), so I’ll push those thoughts of coats further away, but we all know we can’t wait too long to get our hands on the best pieces for fall, so ‘my-favourite-coats-picks’ are coming up here soon.

Denim skirt by Hofmann Copenhagen, blouse by Cos, new pumps by Acne Studios (also here, here and here), new sunnies and bag by Celine.

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.

Crepe pants by Hofmann Copenhagen, bomber jacket by Stella McCartney, old shoes Zara, bag by Celine, silver ring by Noemi Klein and Ray Ban’s.

Summer has (finally!) arrived and it’s time to get those pale legs out there shall we. I intend to do so with the help of dresses and floppy skirts after traumatising many months locked up in jeans.

I prefer investing in separates that can be worn and put together in a million ways, and a new skirt of mine is this soft denim piece by Hofmann Copenhagen, perfect to throw on, dressed up or down, comes with elastic waist and pockets (I just love my pockets!). Though the shape is quite “girly” I’m up for the challenge and will wear it with nothing too too pretty if you know what I mean.

Hofmann A/W 13-14

I’m a devoted fan of Hofmann Copenhagen’s esthetique, and the A/W collection is better than ever before (hello there jumpsuits!). Danish designer behind the label, Heidi Hofmann, who’s also a good friend of mine, launched her webshop this spring, really worth checking out!

Far away

Sorry for disappearing for a couple of days but I’ve had too much to do privately, my mum visiting and a few last preps for the baby who could arrive any time soon(!!!).
I’ll be missing out on most fashion-week-stuff this February which is for someone, workaholic like me, a little frustrating, but bless online screenings with today’s highlights such as Tibi, Alexander Wang and Altuzarra from NY.

As for my own outfit posts there won’t be many more from me in the weeks ahead, having had my wardrobe totally recycled lately, but I promise I’ll be back for sure afterwards finally fitting into my New life, New ideas and New wardrobe.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!!!

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 wore leather leggings by Joseph (or similar style here), wool cape by Hofmann, boots by Acne, bag by Celine and sunnies by Tom Ford.

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.

Woop woop, I’m slowly getting more comfortable wearing more fitted clothing these days, though I love maxi proportions and slouchy silhouettes, it’s not always the best idea going looser while parts of your body gets bigger, which actually ends up doing nothing for you.

I wore this last week in Paris while the weather was wonderful, rather the opposite of London today where it’s wet and chilly, and the coats are back on. New leather leggings by Joseph, angora knit by Hofmann Copenhagen, boots by Isabel Marant, new bag by Tod’s, bracelet Cooee, watch Tagheuer and sunnies by Tom Ford.

Fall is in the air

Good morning folks! First I’d like to say a big thank you to all your best wishes I received the other day, it’s been overwhelming, you’re simply the best!!!

London Fashion Week has come to an end and  and moved on to Milan where I’ll be joining tomorrow for a couple of days, days are moving so fast and I’m wondering what happened with September so far, it kind of escaped me. Over the weekend in London we got our first taste of fall, the leaves have gone more yellow, and the breeze a little chillier, but as long as it’s wonderful bright and sunny there’s nothing to complain about right, just throw on a warmer jacket or knitwear and you’re sorted, love this time of year!

Images taken on Saturday, I wore silk trousers by Tibi, linen t-shirt by Acne, wool blazer by Hofmann Copenhagen, shoes Zara, bag by Proenza Schouler and sunnies by Tom Ford.
