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!

Wool dress by IRO, new coat from Zara, scarf by Ralph Lauren, boots by Isabel Marant, bag by Proenza Schouler and Ray Ban’s.

More prints!

Right now I’m so feeling for prints like tartar, stripes and houndstooth, and promising budget favourites are this semi-transparent tartar shirt and stripey blouse in Zara’s December lookbook.

I’ve hardly bothered to stop by Zara lately, reason? Cause I find it quite off-putting when I see straight off copycat collections and pieces in the shelves. Don’t get me wrong, I really love the highstreet, and do understand that they take inspiration in trend forecasts based on designers collections, but sometimes they just take it too far. However, today I’ll give Zara another go, as there are some promising pieces in their October lookbook, how about that oversized leather jacket for instance?

Tranquilo

After 2 fantastic relaxing weeks on beautiful Santorini I’ve hopefully charged my batteries to last through the coming darker months.

Today I’m heading back to London to prepare for a very busy fashion month ahead, kicking off in NY next week, and I cant wait! Feeling beyond ready to leave my summer wardrobe and modus behind and dive into a new season, a fresh start, like every fall.
Time to wake up from my coma, bye bye clear blue waters, sandals, black beaches and tranquilo, wishing you all a great day and see you back in London!

Balmain & Zara by David Sims

I cant help but loving Balmain’s beautiful atmospheric campaign which includes my absolute dream pieces this coming fall seen on beauty Nadja Bender. When I came across Zara‘s latest campaign fronted by ever-so-cool Freja I couldn’t help having a feeling of deja-vu, as some of the images and atmosphere has some striking resemble. Perhaps explained that they are both lensed by David Sims, who by the way is the man behind many cool campaigns this season. On the other hand I’m not surprised to see Balmain inspired pieces in Zara but perhaps that they’ve both been captured in similar themes by the same photographer, well just a thought…..

Todays shoes

Yes, I decided to get these slingbacks I posted about earlier from Zara, and after strolling around in them today with my feet perfectly intact I must say they area true budget bargains. I’ll post a whole outfit post later on but first, have you noticed my new logo on top made by my friend Shini, thank you so much hun! In fact my whole site will have a tiny facelift within short and I hope you’ll like it.

Distressed

Hi guys, I feel so sorry for my blog being neglected this week but I finally begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel, yeah! My utility outfits continues, denim, shirts and khaki jackets are favorites at the moment, and in this moving process I’ve rediscovered old favorites, like this vintage army jacket and my old time love a men’s shirt by Dior, perhaps I should be moving more often?

Wishing you all a wonderful Thursday in the wonderful spring weather!

 Zara April Lookbook

White and whites, just what I want to wear these days, and it looks like Zara’s got plenty to offer right now in Zara’s April lookbook fronted by beautiful Liu Wen. Though many of the looks come with a high polyester warning(!), there are definitely some pieces worth checking out.

Picks

Beautiful things in store right now, a quilted leather bomber from Topshop Boutique, perfect for cold days worn with a warm knit, and leather plexi heels from Zara. Those beautiful Prada earrings just got to be mine but I’m leaning towards the pale green color with pink crystals instead, in a way I think the red ones would be better on a blond.

A hint of print

My mum is visiting from Oslo this week and one of the great things she brought along for me among Norwegian chocolate and home made “knekkebrød” was this shirt with prints from Daniel Silver for Acne, which was one of my favorite pieces from that capsule collection. Thank you mum!

Images taken on Tuesday, I wore shirt from Daniel Silver for Acne, old leather skirt Zara, coat Isabel Marant, watch Tagheuer, shoes and bag Celine.

Zara’s November

Nice looks at Zara right now, lace, flower prints, knee length skirt and mix of feminine and masculine, pretty much the keywords on my mind right now.

Preppy

The weather in London right now is perfect to wear bare feet and a jumper, forget about the coat and hopefully it’s gonna last over the weekend. Btw, I have mixed feeling for these sandals, a love-hate-relation I guess, but as soon as I put them on I lean towards love cause they are pure therapy to my feet with the rubber sole, and even if they’re not the prettiest shoe they add something to any outfit.

Now, I’m gonna jump into a much more glamorous outfit, dinner out with the boys and it’s Friday, yeah, the best day of the week, wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Loose fit

Since I got back from Paris I’ve only been wearing cozy knitwear, can’t get enough of them, and until the weather requires warm jackets I’m gonna keep mine on. I’m so thrilled I finally got to wear my Celine loafers that I bought a couple of weeks ago, haven’t been able to wear them earlier due to my little foot accident, I hopefully woke up every morning in Paris trying to get them on, but no. This Sunday though my foot slipped right into, and gosh they are comfortable, has some kind of magic pillow sole inside.

Oki, gotta run to join a fab birthday girl for dinner, have a lovely eve you too!

I wore knit from Zara, jeans Cos, watch Michael Kors, shoes and bag Celine.

Tuileries

Who could imagine high summer at this time of year, I’m pretty sure we never really had these high temperatures and burning sun any time this summer and I don’t mind at all being in Paris enjoying it. It has been a challenge though to get dress and after only a few days I had already used the summery fabrics I brought along. I could safely have left trousers and jumpers back home and only packed floating summery dresses. Obviously I haven’t been the only one with this “problem” and I guess many have had to improvise, or hit the stores for summery stuff in October, or those brave ones who decided to simply stay up against the heat.

I wore this outfit a few days ago and was completely melting away, I wore leather skirt, sandals and bag by Acne, top Zara, watch Tagheuer, bracelet J Dauphin, sunnies Ralph Lauren and the sand on my shoes are from Tuileries!

Sunset

Fashion Week in Paris is a little crazy but I love it and indian summer continues so it’s back on with everything called summery clothes. My first day here was a little hectic though, perhaps due to the fact I was limping around in flats and at the end of the day, around sunset, just before the light was all gone, I realized I hadn’t got outfit photos taken, hence the blurry dark quality.
Anyway I wore top by Isabel Marant, shorts Acne, shoes Zara, bag Chanel, sunnies Phillip Lim, watch Michael Kors, bracelets Hermes and Intermix.
