Dungarees and Air Max? Nope, I’m not preggy again (!!!), neither on my way to the gym, certainly not fit for the cocktail party, but suits me perfect when on the run. My little girl will hopefully (or perhaps not!) be walking in not too long and I’ll probably be very glad I’ve stocked up with comfy, runnable footwear when those days come along.
From a sartorial point of view I like the freshness, or confusion is more like it, a pair of sneakers adds to most outfits, especially when they come in happy colours like these or cool prints.

Dungarees by Current/Elliott (also here and here), v-neck tee by Acne, coat by Stella McCartney, Nike Air Max, bag by Tod’s, and Ray Ban’s.

At fashion weeks you can be certain that some of your favourite in season pieces will be popping up on someone else’s shoulders, hands and feet, and if not it’s certainly the right place to be to pick up some inspiration or two.

– Elena Perminova, hand over those Repossi rings (here and here) please!
– I could definitely make room for this Prismick bag by Roger Vivier.
– The Proenza Schouler jacket and open toe mules, oh yes!!!
– I don’t think I ever could get tired of denim overalls.
– Chunky knit-perfection in what looks like Celine!
– This woman, this eagle silk shirt by Stella McCartney (here and here)
– I’m obsessed with marble prints and that this top by Balenciaga (similar here) included.
– And just like that I want to fray my jeans too and wouldn’t mind pairing them with  Nicholas Kirkwood beauties.

Happy Monday!

All things checked

As if I haven’t had other things than cozy knits in my head since my last post and all through fashion week, I choose to follow up with this beauty, fashion consultant Bev Malik, that I snapped the other day, wearing one of  my favourite knits from J.W Anderson A/W 2012. So wish I’d gotten this one myself, checked+mohair+V-neck, all boxes ticked!

Homies again

Do you know those days when you’ve got no clue what to wear and you grab for whatever closest to you?Well, I know very well what that’s about these days, and the result may end up being slightly schizophrenic……
Hehe, no more words needed but I hope you all had an absolute fabulous weekend and may the sun be on your side the coming one too!

As you may know my style is not very complicated and pretty simple, you may call me boring, but to me nothing beats timeless classics, and preferable in non-screamy colours. I would also dare to say opting for classic pieces of high quality will “save” you money in the long run. Whether you agree to this statement or not at least you’re more likely to use them many seasons right.
Anyway, I like mixing my basics (black denims and blazer) with structured pieces, like this python bag by Tod’s, a new baby in my closet.

Frame denims, cashmere silk jumper by Dries Van Noten, blazer and shoes from & other stories, diamond necklace by Monica Vinader and python leather bag by Tod’s.

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!
This week certainly has been busy on my side, including press days, meetings, parties, and very long walks (part of my getting-back-pre-preggy-regime). My little girl came along on most of it in a baby carrier, and managed to sleep throughout a slightly crazy Stella McCartney sample sale while I had my arms full of Stella treasures.

Motherhood is still very new to me, but if there’s one thing I’ve picked up so far it’s being practical, and if I wasn’t before I sure am now. Putting on a silky top with a dry clean tag or other delicate fabrics with a newborn drooling in your arms is not so clever. However, this “practicality” doesn’t mean I won’t leave my house in heels anymore, strutting around in heels is also a great form of exercise right.

Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.

Leandra in NY September 2012, wearing skirt by Ostwald Helgason and triobag by Celine.

A girl right up my street, who’s certainly gifted with a lovely attitude, style and writing skills, blogger Leandra Medine aka The Man Repeller, has written her first book. I will for sure lay my hands on it and expect nothing less than hilarious content. The book ‘Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.’ can be pre-ordered on Amazon, release date 10’th of September.

Ok, since I had enough of restless napping days at home waiting for my baby(!) I yesterday decided to do a little street style snapping at Burberry’s in Kensington Gardens where some of my favourite chic girls where parading around, Lena Perminova was one of them, in this perfect mix of high and low, a Burberry Prorsum peplum tweed jacket and skirt by H&M, bag by Analeena.

Women in Suits

Well isn’t there just something with a perfectly cut suit or a tailored look, whether on a man or woman. And ADR, don’t you totally rock that Saint Laurent look!

Loving these shots by-need-no-further-introduction-Tommy Ton for style.com during men’s Fall 2013 ongoing fashion tour, but I’ll also tip you about my friend Lee Oliveira, also on scene, presenting excellent street style photography.

Hello Tiger

Everytime I scroll through my photo library this Kenzo bag always catches my eye, I guess I’m regretting a little I didn’t get it while in NY, a little tiger stuff in the wardrobe wouldn’t hurt anyone right?

I’ve ran into Maria Kolosova, editor at Harper’s Bazaar Russia, many times lately and except for being incredible cute she always looks so well put together, with effort yes, but without trying too hard, just the way I like it! Like the other day at Chanel, where she looked absolutely stunning in this dream of a sequin jumper from Sportmax A/W-12.

D for Dior

Woop woop, I’m running way late with posts here, like always during fashion weeks I’m afraid. Here are just a few snap shots from yesterday with a little Dior buzz, will post more later, have a fabulous Saturday!

I’ll try to be more active on Instagram during the day where you can follow me on @hedvigso

I’ve never been into “granny-style” shaped bags, but this baroque pattern by Dolce & Gabbana looks so damn good peeking under the arm like this, imagine worn with an all darker outfit, jeans+white shirt  or a LBD. You’ll find similar shoulder bag version here.

Usually the way I see it, it’s in the details and simplicity is the key, like a pair of rolled up sleeves and hems, perfectly demonstrated by Geraldine Saglio here in NY. Btw, I’m wondering where her heels are from, perfect hight and I really like the position of the heel, anyone who knows who they’re by?
