Staples

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!

Hoop

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.

Boosted!

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!!!

Looking ahead

There are so many temptations out there right now, resort collections hitting stores and great winter sales ongoing. My “dilemma” is if I strike I probably won’t fit into it anyway until the season is over, so I’ve chosen to close my eyes (man it’s hard!) and focus on the beautiful spring that will come eventually. With a few exceptions though, like this currency printed shirt from Acne’s resort that I’ve wanted since I first had a look on this collection, and even if it’s a little tight over my bump right now at least I can wear it come spring.

Velvet & Stripes

Woop woop, I’m back in London and jumped straight into my heels this morning when I joined a fabulous group of women at Tod’s Christmas lunch at 5 Hertford Street. I wore my new stripey viscose blouse from Zara (a real budget bargain!), a new pair of velvet skinnies by J Brand (maternity-fantastic!), my beloved Agnes by Jimmy Choo, signature bag by Tod’s and a new golden coin bracelet by Monica Vinader (coins are my latest crush!). Now getting ready for next event, wishing you all a fabulous eve too!

Sparkle

My outfits these days are pretty limited to jeans, shirts and knits when on the run, but at least to vary a little I’ve been playing around with accessories and jewellery, like these new gold pleated earrings, a little golden bling bling on a regular weekday sometimes does it for me.

On another note, right now it’s early Sunday morning and I’m an unusual early bird as I’m about to catch my train to beautiful Paris for a few days. Enjoy your Sunday folks and see you in Paris!

Tartan

Woop woop, Happy Monday Morning and I hope you’ve all had a fab weekend!
On my side my bump is growing a lot these days, and though I know it will certainly get bigger the remaining 3 months I already feel like I’ve swallowed a basket ball, where will this end? Those silhouettes, ala Proenza Schouler, I pictured I would wear this fall feel a million miles away, as fitted just feels the best for now, and the skirts in my wardrobe unluckily don’t come with elastic waistlines (more elastic waistlines to the people please!).

Anyway, here’s what I wore a few days back, my favourite new jeans by J Brand, wool jacket by Hofmann, boots Isabel Marant, wool scarf Ralph Lauren, bag by Proenza and bracelets by Monica Vinader and Cooee.

Studs

Hey, hope you all had a smashing weekend!
I’ve been strolling around in the streets of London that has already turned into a Christmas-melt, a little bit early for my taste but I cant help loving the decorations, what else is there this time of year than cozying up with candles in the dark, though I fully understand some of you over in NY wouldn’t romanticize it as much as me right now.

Anyway, I’ve been running around lots this past week and opted for more practical outfits and “runnable” shoes, and this coat and preggy jeans are my constant favourites. Jeans by J Brand, new studded knit  by Vanessa Bruno Athe, shoes by Tod’s, wool coat by Mango, watch by Michael Kors, necklace by Cooee and bag by Proenza.

Weekend

It’s Saturday noon and I’m about to head out for lunch and seize the beautiful November sunlight, yes, I’m not one of those who headed out hours ago cause I love my sleepy-weekend-mornings way too much.
Anyway, I wouldn’t have mind slipping into this outfit as we speak, strongly considering getting some of this pieces, like these boots by Acne that have long time been on my mind…..
Happy Weekend Everyone!

Mismatch

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.

Breeze


It’s Saturday morning again and I can’t get my head around how fast this week has passed. Some of you may have noticed my-not-so-regular-posts this week and I’m really sorry for that, but I’ve had a million things to do that needed to be finished off before this weekend, and sadly my dear blog have taken the effect,  but I hope to make it up here in terms of content and enthusiasm. On Monday morning I’m heading over to Paris couture weekend to soak up all the beauty and I’ll bring you along with me.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!

Yesterday London weather was a slightly chiller and more windy so I wrapped up a little, I wore an old leather gilet from H&M,  jeans by J Brand, cotton tee by Proenza Schouler, sandals Celine, bag by Givenchy and Ray Ban’s.

Pont de Solférino

A new favorite in my wardrobe that I’ve been wearing a  lot lately but not managed to catch on camera is this knitted camoflage jumper from Topshop, perfectly slouchy on relaxing days, like last Sunday in Paris was to me, visiting Musee d’Orsay and drinking hot chocolate with rum.

Roland Garros

When I headed to Roland Garros in Paris this weekend to watch tennis I opted for practical clothes, yes, not the most exciting outfit in the world but sometimes practicality comes first, even though I’m not a fan of the latter. Though skinnies, wool, rain coat, and hot drinks were miles away of keeping me warm, I really enjoyed the games, never thought I would turn into a tennis fan but there you go.

I wore jeans by J Brand, wool knit from Reiss, loafers by Acne, coat Balenciaga, bag Celine and Ray Ban’s.

Unexpected events

Wow, I had loads of fun this weekend, hanging out with girlfriends I don’t have the chance to see so much in these busy times. It all kicked off on Friday noon with a little shopping, followed by dinner and drinks at various places, and then, well it ended late. Days like that happen to be when I’ve the most fun, when nothing’s planned and everyone is positive and never want the evening to end, thanks girls!

I left home in this outfit that morning with no party plans on my mind, jeans can definitely be a party saver, I wore J Brand jeans, new lace shirt by Acne, parka Isabel Marant, shoes Camilla Skovgaard, bracelet Kenneth Jay Lane, watch Tagheuer, Ray Ban’s and bag Celine.
