It’s summer in the city, the tan and freckles are back on, and I’m fully enjoying by letting my skin breathe to the max, the behold and wellbeing of summer months.

Sartorial-wise I’ve been living in this jumpsuit, perfect on the daily run with sandals and easy to dress up with heels and a blazer, another all-rounder, yup, life doesn’t need to be so complicated, who’s got time for it?

When in Olso last week while being blessed by fantastic summery weather a trip to Aker Brygge and Tjuvholmen felt elementary. Enjoying fresh seafood, wine and ice-cream in the capital’s harbour is highly recommended while touristing on a warm summer day, watching the slow chilled speed of people and boat traffics, add that to your destination list if you need an escape from tumultuous city life.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

June already, what happened to May exactly? I don’t know about you but that month just passed so quickly I never got my head around it, the missing month this year. Anyway, May or not, this week I rediscovered my love for leather trousers and a crispy blue shirt again, not revolutionary in any way, just perfectly cut pieces.
Happy Weekend to every single one of you!

Being an “investment-dresser” and a black cat at heart like me, means you end up with a wardrobe mainly consisting of black, timeless separates. Boring you may say, but the positive side is that it sort of all work together without putting much thought to it, and I guess that’s the case for all different styles out there. Knowing what’s to your liking, save and invest in it!
Unless wardrobe space is none of your worries, then one perfect fitted black blazer or leather jacket worn over several seasons or years is better than having 5 collecting dust on their hangars.

With summer on hold right now and London offering more heavy showers that actual daylight, what to do?
Double Denim, a simple everyday combo I never seem to tire of and that somehow always feel current. It’s all down to great denim staples and otherwise classic shirts and accessories, no rocket science really, and we all the ingredients!

This last week we finally got spoiled with summer heat in London, and just like that it’s time for a serious winter clean of the wardrobe and we can finally bring out those more summery pieces. Cropped tops and high waisted combos in sheer fabrics for instance, may the new season begin!

Oh you spring, you sure had us fooled for a while!
Anyway, chillier or not, the sun has been out this week and so have I and my little supergirl, constantly by my side or in my arms whatever I do. With some common sense in mind that should have restricted my wardrobe to jeans and more childproof items by now, but that won’t happen, at least as long there’s no mudd involved!

Little less loud

Yeah yeah, I know it’s mostly about arty prints this season, but I still find myself sticking to simple and monochrome looks as far away from loud as it gets. If you’re looking for revolutionary, too-coo-for-school, fast fashion, and most of the time short lived tips, you’d better look elsewhere than here, cause this space is about those basics you can wear again and again with quality in mind. Gosh, that all sounded boring, but these basics aren’t for sure, a pair of cropped wide trousers like these are on my top-tip-list this season, if you haven’t got yours already!

How time flies, already mid-march, and I haven’t got my head around that proper winter never really came in the first place. Instead it’s all about embracing the beautiful signs of spring that already have arrived, the birds singing, cherry trees blooming and the optimism in the air. I’m celebrating with less layering and lighter colours, hurra!

Even the most persistent heel (mis) user have had to lay down their guard at this point, flats have come to stay in whatever shapes and forms. Personally I converted to the flat side post-pregnancy while pushing the baby buggy uncountable miles to get back into shape, and in my everyday juggling daily life climbing up and down stairs it made most sense to stick to it. Having that said a girl needs them gorgeous heels too of course, but you won’t see me grocery shopping in mine for now.

Tod’s

05-B

With Alessandra Facchinetti onboard, Tod’s has taken a step up both on ready-to-wear and on the accessory side. The footwear for instance, still classy with a little more edge, or umph you may call it, and we like that don’t we? City sleek, lust worthy buckled and fringed sandals are amongst my favourites, and you’ll find them on Tod’s.com this spring or can be pre-ordered here now, yum!

New lengths

If the knee or mid lengths didn’t fully bloom earlier this winter I do believe they will succeed this coming spring, and the more asymmetric, pleated, fringed and unfinished endings the better. These are details that I personally like myself, and I will for sure incorporate a few additions to my wardrobe come spring, paired with relaxed pieces, first thing in, this skirt by Isabel Marant Etoile, let the new lengths begin for real!

As a contrast to my “Manish”-post the other day I felt like letting my girly side come out and play, at least to some extend. Cute little dresses worn with knitted cards or coats were the key looks strutting down Saint Laurent’s A/W runway and it’s one of the few show-looks that are perfect for “real life”, and those parties coming up this seasons.

Already one week in of December, November, fall, what happened? Christmas is just around the corner, and a like many of you my list stretches to the moon of things that should be done, well, same procedure as every year I guess. We’ll all get there in the end don’t we, one way or another!

So with that dark cloud of things that I should do hanging over me, I haven’t really put much thought into outfits, and simply relied on basic and comfy all-rounders, but when I think of it that’s what I always do, hehe.
Happy Saturday Everyone!
