Liberty London

Meanwhile, while the rest of the northern hemisphere looks like being buried under snow, London still encourages transitional dressing code, if this is the “new” winter, I’m definitely signing up for it.

Speaking of something London’ish, you can hardly go more London than the iconic Liberty  retailer, which amongst many attributes is famous for their iconic prints. After being offered to have a look on their latest additions to the Iphis collection including bags and other accessories, my eyes landed on this canvas tote, the perfect travel mate or when you carry a few things extra along.

Back to basics

If you’re a little confused and not sure whether to turn right or left  at the next crossing it’s sometimes good to pause and take a step back, that goes for the world of superficial sartorial choices as well.

In these fast moving and visual bombarding times it’s easy to get carried away, good or bad, if you’re “feeling lost” grab for the basics. A timeless biker, soft knit and everyday heel are included on my list. The latter are new species in my wardrobe that I think I’m on my way developing a love story with, great walkable sling backs are a rare find, please make more of them, anyone?

Surreal

Good morning out there, hope you all had a wonderful week and feeling ready to meet November!

Due to the surreally mild and dry London weather lately (21 degrees, I’m not complaining!) transitional dressing continues. I wouldn’t mind this climate and easy dressing represent the “new winter”,  however we’ve been warned, a record freezing winter is just around the corner, feeling just as surreal though…

I don’t want to try to intellectualise my choices of outfits, but in these turtle neck times, don’t forget about the turtle neck dress, I’m loving this pocket friendly style by Ganni, an easy go-to-piece that I surely see the usage of this winter with tights and boots.

Over the years I’ve learned to narrow down my wish list for the beginning of every new season, since I like to mix it up with timeless basics already in stock. This season my list included the rather obvious ones, a blanket cape, a few coat assembles, more chunky knits (can’t get enough), knee high boots (still haven’t found), and high waisted A-line skirts. With the latter as one of my new wardrobe favourites as it’s super versatile and everlasting, you can surely sign me up for leather and velvet versions too.

Mid October and London temperatures are perfect, just perfect to sport bare legs alongside something that keeps you warm. Better take the opportunity while we can, before we know it it’s time to wrap up head to toe, and the black tights I usually dread so much. However, thanks to lovely 60′d mod inspirations from the Saint Laurent house this season I won’t mind really, now the hunt for the best black tights begins…

Happy Sunday you lovely ones!

If you haven’t yet tired of cosy, long sleeved, chunky turtlenecks, stay in there. I’ll most definitely keep drowning in mine along with the usual basics, no rocket science going on here, keeping things simple and comfortable, with a touch of print. Latest print addition is this bag by Sophie Hulme, the perfect compromise between clean lines, colour and functionality.

Wishing you all a glorious weekend!

Denim + Slingbacks

outfit picks 09.10.2014

I love a denim+slingbacks combo, and these specimen by Dolce & Gabbana might possible find their way to my shoe collection at some point. Not that I would’ve mind any of the other beauties here either, then my Thursday outfit would have been solved!

After coming to terms with summertime sadness blues, fall has officially arrived in London. And like every year it’s not so sad after all as we can finally add those extra layers and bring out new seasons coats, scarves and ponchos. Latest addition in my own outerwear closet is this wool coat by Ganni, a chic, basic, timeless piece that I’ve been looking for a long time having had no intention digging too deep in the pockets.
May the layering begin!

Can a girl ever have enough of soft, chunky, cashmere turtle knits?
Judging from what’s dominating my wardrobe shelf in the knit department, apparently not. In my opinion, there’s nothing as cosy and versatile during fall as snuggling up in an oversized knit, preferable in shades of grey. Bags, shoes, come and go, but if there’s one item I find really worth investing in this is it.

Wishing you all a glorious sunny 1′st of October!

Picks

transitional outfit-Northern Light

It’s time for transitional dressing again and while the weather still allows bare legs I would still choose to bring along something knitted. Tomorrow, Paris is on the menu and I wouldn’t mind at all jumping into this total look, with the cashmere knit wrapped around my shoulders or waist, all new picks in stores!

Happy Monday morning world!

Culottes have certainly been ruling my wardrobe this year in various fabrics and colours, and my love for them is still going strong. I love how they work so well casual dressed down with a chic cosy knit or more dressy with a blouse or top. On this particular day back in NY volume was apparently on my mind, volume on volume, just love breaking them rules.

Hedvig Opshaug August 2014-2

It’s been a while, but I firmly believe the world is still standing!
As you may know the semi annual fashion month tour is fully on, and so far I’ve been pretty much living in suitcases, spending more time in taxis between appointments and shows than in front of my laptop. The good thing though is that amongst my heavily packed suitcases there is space for inspiration that I’m storing on the go, and hopefully after having time to digest it all, we’ll have something to snack about in the darker months sets in.

Sartorial-wise I’ve sported  the dress+sneakers look a lot lately, either kimono dresses or little lace numbers. This has certainly been the year of sneakers and pointy flats, and from what I’ve seen so far it won’t be over very soon either.
Happy Tuesday  Everyone!

August have been a busy one, while it seems that most people have escaped cities for airy beach life I certainly have been on the run or in a flight. Jeans, blouse and sandal combo’s have become my simple choice of outfits, especially when you’re juggling early nursery drop offs and meetings.
Well, soon they are off again, the clothing I mean, I’ve saved the best of summer to the last, a very much longed for holiday ahead, beach life ahoy, see you in Mykonos!

Bossy me, probably loosing patience on my non-professional photographer friend around who just kindly offered to help (so sorry dear, please forgive me!).

If there’s a pattern I’ll never tire of it’s got to be plaids, something the piles of classical checked shirts and scarves in my wardrobe clearly proves. This fall season, like so many before, plaids are back, not that they ever left, last year was full on plaid-mania.

Anyway, I recently teamed up with the iconic brand Belstaff, well known for their waxed leather bikers and recent collaborations with David Beckham. However this brand has certainly more than bikers up their sleeves, and this wrap skirt for instance might end up being one of my favourite staples, teamed up with an oversized turtleneck knit and sneakers come fall.

Summertime Sadness

Hedvig Opshaug 23.08.2014-2

We’re getting there slowly, that time of summer when it gradually changes, you feel it in the air, the flowers are not strutting as much as they did a month back, friends and family gatherings are calling for reality, and in London yellow leaves already started falling. One month too early in my opinion but luckily there’s still a few more exciting escapes on my agenda before it’s time to roll up those sleeves. For those of you who’s got no more trips left, bless, and may August still be fabulous!

Meanwhile, the little clothes I’ve been wearing lately when I haven’t enjoyed beach life can be summed up by these loose jeans and blingy sandals. MiH jeans (also here and here), top by Celine, sandals by Marni (also here), watch by Larsson & Jennings, Ray Ban’s.
