How we roll…

Summery temperatures have finally started showing in London, though I wouldn’t dear leaving the house just yet without a throw on or a warming knit. Speaking of the latter, this cashmere piece have certainly proved it’s value and juicy tag. Never have a single piece been recycled and loved as much as this one in my wardrobe. While you might have tired of it by now, I never will, which again proves to me that investing thoughtfully in your wardrobe really does pay off in the long run. It’s not rocket science, but if you’re a knit girl, invest in the best knits, same goes for dresses, shoes, jeans, or what else closest to your heart, and play around with the rest from high and low.

Favourite Shirt…

ganni shirt

After years of having to tune into men’s departments for the perfect shirt, brands from high and low finally got around a few years back and understood that the female specimen opted for the same fit and look, but just a little more neatly feminine fitted in the right areas.

Danish mid-market brand Ganni, recently launched a small mannish shirt collection in cotton and silk with the perfect fit for a reasonable penny, starting from £90 and you’ll find them here.

Faye Mini

Chloe Faye Mini

Chloé has certainly stepped up with this seasons handbags and Miss Faye (previous post), has got an irresistible little sister, the Faye mini. Doesn’t fit your phone though, but roomy enough for cards and other small necessities, the perfect all-round-mini with just the right amount of flare for all occasions. Fits perfectly cross body but I’m gonna wear mine as a bum bag too. Sorry Celine, this is the reason we never happened bag-wise this season.

Faye mini is flying off shelves as we speak, comes in various colours of suede and python, starting from £440, and you can find it here and here.

Carefree, relaxed 70′s waves have somehow managed to sneak into everything what my own sartorial choices go lately. Personally the lightness fits my own state of mind and vision perfectly these days, or at least how I wish it to be, maybe a subconscious therapeutical thing. I’ve even let my hairdryer rest recently and let unruly natural curls out. After never pictured myself in flower power and being particular boho, I might need to eat my own words by July…

Lace-up T’s

Lace-up T-shirt

A favourite detail this season on such as basic as a T-shirt is the lace-up, which works so perfectly well with all things denim and adds a little springy flare, and gosh do some of us need it right now…

Hola!!!
While palm trees and sunny beaches are desperately needed this time of year, I’m turning my wings back to home roots in snowy North of Norway, family and serenity come first.

As of now, I’ve never been more pale, but who doesn’t want to get their limbs out on early spring days. Until that longed for beach holiday shows up, and a de-whitening-process and energy boosting can take place naturally, I’m gonna sign up to Mystic Tan Sprays, spa treatments, and other spring treats. My new favourite boots that weirdly enough despite being leopards, that work with pretty much everything in my wardrobe right now, are amongst my later treats. Because we deserve it ladies and gents!!

Danish designer, Sophie Bille Brahe has been one of my personal favourites for years now with her clean fresh water pearls pieces, and rings made for stacking. Latest additions are these 14-karat gold spiral earrings, perfectly understated edgy and delicate, may we have them both please!!!

Rule breaking

Not being afraid of playing around with volumes the selection of wide legged trousers in various shapes in stores right now suits me perfectly well. Some might believe you need to be on the taller side to get away with voluminous silhouettes and wide legged cropped trousers, but we’ve all seen the likes of petite Miroslava Duma kill all those theories recent years.
Apparently I woke up with with the idea of oversizing myself on this specific day, topped with many of my favourite accessories all at once, not caring about a rule in the world…

That ’70s Show

Yup, the 70′s vibes are definitely out there as early predicted, and I love the undone freedom spirits that tags along with it. Though you’re not gonna see me taking it all the way in flower power dresses, long fringed bags and flowers in my hair, like many editorials right now are reliving the era instead of translating it to 2015.
This spring however I’m in the mood of sporting flared trousers (yes, I keep going on about it!), cropped or long with silky blouses, more than ever before, what could possible become my new daily uniform, if my beloved skinnies allow it.
Peace man…

Apologies for not posting on this space as often as I used too, I wish I could, but being a one-man show has it’s time limits, if only we had more hours…
With Fashion weeks running full up to speed right now I’m sure you got your feeds and news channels full anyway.

Sartorial wise I’m still holding on to some of my winter favourites combined with a few new season pieces, like this suede skirt by Tibi for instance. Sporting bare legs in February has become the new normal in London and I’m certainly not complaining.
Happy Weekend’ing!!

Far out!

Every year, whether it’s trending or not, I dig out my good old flares. This season however they couldn’t feel more right and instead of being brought out in daylight on odd occasions they have become my new regulars.
You’ll find all fits and styles out there right now but my personal favourites have always been by MiH Jeans with the perfect kick, and this velvet pair are certainly up in the running of being my winning pair ever.
Have you dug your flares out yet?

While rushing through flu-month with a sick toddler, lack of energy and a (soon!) desperate need of melanin-stimulation, while watching the amounts of non-replied-work-mails growing, January was gone with a flash. Welcome February and all fashion light coming along with it, still clinging on to our winter staples while sipping to fresh peppermint tea.
Wishing you all a lovely week!

Micro Monsters…

fendi micro monsterNot that I’m lacking sense of humour or take fashion too serious, in fact rather the opposite, but I’ve never felt the urge expressing it through my own personal style. However exceptions can be made, and if I wanted to splurge on something rather wild that wouldn’t tick any of my normally sensible boxes(!), it would be the new seasons micro monster baguette by Fendi.
Perhaps I could justify that my little girl would borrow it? The little monsters come in green, yellow and coral, yours for £930 and can be pre-ordered here.
