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!!!

Oversize me

After some pretty dark and London-cloudy-months it finally looks like days are getting a little brighter with the sun popping out more frequently, and I bet(!) no one is happier than me! The sunglasses are back on and this oversized wayfarer pair by Acne that I got last year will definitely be spotted on my nose come spring as well.

Parka

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!

Midi

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!

B&W, and a little gold

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.

In time

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.

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.

Wool & Tweed

Happy Monday morning and I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I spent mine doing lots of 1′sts in my life, finding myself of the top floors of department stores (babystuff) instead of enjoying the “secret” sales on the floors below was definitely a 1′st one. I probably looked liked a big question mark when the helpful staff loaded my arms with “necessary” gadgets I never heard of, or even occurred to me was needed. Well, now it’s all done in one go and the rest of shopping time available in December will be devoted to Christmas gifts and perhaps a few treats for myself, just to release some of the pressure for Santa…..

What’s not a 1′st one is my forever combo of wooly dresses and coats, but that just happens to be my favourite right now. Wool dress and scarf from Cos, coat and boots by Isabel Marant, tights by Wolford, bag by Proenza Schouler, gold bracelet by Monica Vinader and rings by De Beers.

London from Norway

I’m apparently into darker outfits these days, and have been sporting lots of all black, something I usually rarely do. Either if it’s dressing accordingly as days are getting darker or to minimise my growing silhouette, I don’t know.
Anyway, here’s what I wore the other day when I caught up with my sweet friend Martha for lunch at Sloane Square, before I later in the day jumped on a flight to Norway, now chilling at my mum’s place mentally preparing to step out in -11 degrees. Happy chilly Sunday everyone!

More for less


When I come across great fabrics for a good price I strike, well almost, I’m so regretting I didn’t look a little harder for the white version of this cashmere turtleneck on the day of the MMM for H&M launch 2 weeks ago, especially now when I’ve got the hots for cozy warm dresses. And like a friend said the other day, ” that’s a lot of cashmere for £69!”, can’t argue that.

A quilted set

November so far (luckily!) has not been too chilly in London, with temperatures around 10 degrees heavy winter gear and hats have hardly been needed, yeah! We all know that can change in the matter of seconds so I’ve been careful to enjoy lighter outfits whenever I could.

As you may have picked up I’m all in for comfortable dressing these days, and when I came across these 2 super soft quilted pieces with elastic waistline (hurra!) I got it on the spot. These are new favourites that I will wear as a one piece by just changing accessories and shoes, or worn as separates.
Now, I’m gonna snuggle up in the sofa in another cosy outfit, take a deep breath and wait for my homemade cantarella pie to finish in the oven, wishing you all a fabulous weekend wherever you are!

Stay safe

A few days ago I had a bad experience in one my beloved areas of London. Having someone suddenly jumping on you from behind grabbing what they can may scare anyone to bits, but my initial reaction was anger(!), I got a hit in with my umbrella and ran after the creep who jumped into a nearby building. After getting away with nothing more than my phone, and hopefully problems with the police, I hope he thought it was worth it. Now in the aftermath I’m relieved it ended there, it’s insane how far some are willing to go, but lesson learned is that it could happen to anyone when you least expect it, so stay safe, tuck your phone away and grab your beloved handbag a little harder!

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.

Homies

Today I’ve been a busy bee running between meetings and press views, hence my non-existing updates, but here’s what I’ve been wearing at least. Lately I’ve totally adopted everything comfortable, soft college jumpers, knitted dresses and lower heels, who would have thought?

Skirt by Isabel Marant (as dress here), new Homies jumper by Brian Lichtenberg, cashmere coat Topshop Boutique, new suede boots by Acne, tights by Wolford, bag by Proenza Schouler and silver necklaces Cooee and Tiffany’s.
