Wearing heels and sweater from Zara, cut off jeans from COS, coat from Samse, scarf from Acne, earrings from H&M, bag from Decadent and sunglasses from Dolce & Gabbana.

Til tross for en del skyer p himmelen fikk jeg luftet de nye solbrillene mine og kjrte like gjerne p med bde rosa skjerf og reringer. Tusen takk til A Love Is Blind for fine bilder!

-

Even though the sky was quite cloudy I took my new sunglasses for a walk. And I didn't save any of my pink items, went for pink scarf and earrings too! A big thanks to Sandra from A Love Is Blind for the photos!

Purple for fall

I dag tidlig var jeg p pressefrokost i det nydelige showrommet til Filippa K her i Stockholm. Til min store glede var det mye lilla, s nr jeg fant bde lue og skjerf p salg hos COS like etterp var det stor jubel. N kan det bare vre kaldt noen uker til!

-

This morning I was at a press breakfast in Filippa K's gorgeous showroom. I was really happy to see a lot of purple, so when I found this beanie and gloves at COS later on today there was no doubt. No problem with cols weather for a few more weeks!

It's not much left of the first day here in Stockholm Fashion Week and here's my first outfit this week. Can't wait to show you more pictures from Stockholm!

A dash of orange

Denne vren gr jeg for jordtoner og det ser ut til at oransje er den perfekt fargen kombinere dem med. Og rosa selvflgelig, ingen vr uten noe rosa for min del. 

-

This spring I'm all about neutrals and it seems orange gives those beige tones the perfect finish. And pink of course, no spring without pink. 

Mirror mirror

Da blir det endelig slutt p solbrillemaset mitt en stund. Jeg har jo lett etter et par med speillinser kjempelenge, s dere kan tenke dere ansiktet nr jeg s disse rosa skjnnhetene fra Dolce & Gabbana p Harrods i London. Og ikke nok med det, jeg klarte grine meg til rabatt da dette var siste paret. Sunnmring p tur!

-

So maybe this is the end of all the talk about sunglasses with mirror lenses for a while. I've been looking for a pair for a long time now, so I was really happy when I spotted these pink beauties from Dolce & Gabbana at Harrods. As if that wasn't good enough I actually got a discount since this was the last pair. Oh happy day!

24 hours in London

Frst m jeg bare si tusen, tusen takk for alle London-tips. Dere er s snille! Det ble dessverre ikke tid til prve alt ettersom jeg allerede er hjemme igjen, men her kommer et bildedryss fra turen. For en flott by alts! I tillegg gjorde jeg et skikkelig rverkjp p Harrods som jeg viser dere i morgen.

-

First of all, thank you so much for all your London tips. You're too kind! Unfortunately there wasn't enough time to try everything since I'm already home again, but here's a little photo diary for you. What a great city! I managed to do a real bargain at Harrods too. Show you tomorrow!

Jeg har skikkelig dress-dilla om dagen, s n hper jeg at jeg finner en med ruter her i London.

-

I'm really hooked on suits, so now I'm just hoping to find one with plaids here in London.

London calling

Kofferten er pakket og i morgen tidlig setter jeg meg p flyet til London. Jeg skal bare vre der to dager, s blir kjempeglad om dere har tips til kafeer, butikker og gater som m beskes.

-

My suitcase is packed and tomorrow I'm heading for London. I'm only staying for two days, so I would really appreciate it if you have any tips to cafes I have to visit, shops or streets. 

Plaid pants

Photos/Style by Kling.

I det siste har jeg ftt ynene opp for rutete bukser og akkurat n er jeg p jakt etter en dress. Det er det perfekte vrantrekket i mine yne! Like kult p fest uten noe under blazeren og pumps, som det er til Converse og en t-skjorte p dagtid.

-

Lately I've been having a crush on plaid pants and right now I'm looking for a suit. In my opinion that's the perfect spring outfit! Works just as good for a party with nothing under the blazer and heels, as it does with Converse and a t-shirt during daytime.

Det er fortsatt iskaldt i Oslo, s i dag tok jeg med den nye ullhatten min p tur. Jeg s den p Mari Fossheim i STYLEmag forrige uke og mtte bestille en til meg selv samme dag. Det blir liksom aldri nok capser med kort brem!

-

It's still freezing in Oslo, so today I'm taking my new hat from Asos for a stroll. I never get too many hats like this!

Happy weekend

Ingenting er som store lrdagsfrokoster og nytt Costume. I tillegg er denne utgaven begynnelsen p et nytt, strre og enda bedre blad og jeg simpelthen elsker coveret og den nye layouten. N kan helgen bare begynne!

-

There's nothing like big Saturday breakfasts and a new issue of Costume. Also this issue is the start of a new, bigger and even better magazine and I just love the cover and the new layout. Let the weekend begin!

Film | Lifestyle

Her kommer en ny liten filmsnutt til dere! Hper dere liker den enda bedre enn den forrige.

Here's comes another film for you guys! I hope you like it even more than the last one.  

Hairy favourites

1. Hydration treatment from Moroccanoil 2. Conditioner from Alterna 3. Oil from Moroccanoil 4. Dry shampoo from Alterna 5. Hair powder from Alterna

Det er egentlig ikke mye tid jeg bruker p hret mitt, men det er nok ogs takket vre et par produkter jeg har blitt helt avhengig av. Da tenker jeg spesielt p oljen fra Moroccanoil. Jeg har vanligvis veldig frizzy hr p denne tiden, men ikke i r gitt!

-

I don't really spend a lot of time on my hair, but I guess that's because of a couple of really good products. Especially the oil from Moroccanoil. Does wonders for my hair! It's usually really frizzy during winter, but thanks to these products it's not this winter.

Wearing heels from Zara , jeans from Zapa , coat from Samse , sweater from H&M , hat from Monki and bag from Decadent .

Jeg er helt avhengig av hodeplagg om vinteren og n er jeg litt lei av store luer. Denne capsen redder meg hver gang det skjer og n er enda en caps p vei i posten. No more bad hair days!

-

I'm addicted to headwear during winter and now I'm a bit tired of big beanies. This cap saves everytime that happens and now there's another one coming my way. No more bad hair days!

Starter helgen med ny bukse fra H&M. Endelig en baggy skinnbukse i skapet!

-

I'm wishing the weekend welcome in new pants from H&M. Finally a pair of baggy leather pants in my closet! 

Today's jewelry

Watch from Guess, thin rose gold ring from Leaf, silver ring from Efva Attling, rose gold bracelet from Dyrberg/Kern and silver bracelet from Efva Attling.

Det er ikke noen hemmelighet at jeg er glad i rene linjer p klesfronten, men jeg er om mulig enda gladere i rene linjer nr det kommer til smykker. I tillegg liker jeg at ting skal kunne henge p hnden uten vre en plage. Ingen strass og dingeldangel med andre ord. Hva liker dere best ha p armene?

-

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of clean lines in clothing, but I like it even more when it comes to jewelry. Also I like to able to wear it without having it bother me. No charms for me, please! What do like to decorate your arms with?

Frste dag uten hjemmekontor etter juleferien, s i dag var det p med joggeskoene og hverdagsantrekk igjen.

-

The first day without home office after Christmas Holiday, so today the sneakers and comfy clothes are back. 

First purchase of 2013

Mitt aller frste kjp i 2013! Agnete lakk-hler fra Alexander Wang. N m vren komme fort som fy! Et av mlene mine for 2013 er kjpe frre ting og heller legge litt mer i noe som jeg har skikkelig lyst p. Disse skoene har jeg sett p lenge og nr jeg fant de p salg i min strrelse p The Outnet kunne jeg rett og slett ikke la vre.

-

My very first purchase of 2013! Agnete patent sandals from Alexander Wang. The spring better hurry up! One of my goals for 2013 is to buy less things and put more into a few items that I really want. I've been watching these sandals for a long time so when I found them on sale in my size at The Outnet there was no doubt in my mind.

Hello simple Saturday! Jeg har ftt ynene opp for et nytt merke, nemlig Zapa. Disse buksene har vrt p stort sett hele juleferien.

-

Hello simple Saturday! I've got my eyes up for this new brand, Zapa. I've wore these jeans all the time during Christmas. 

Hello weekend

Det er ganske greit kunne kalle dette for research. Jeg starter helgen med The Room p telefonen, Costume og Design Interir.

-

It's pretty nice to be able to call this research. I'm kicking of the weekend with The Room on my iPhone, Costume and Design Interir.

Those statement pieces

I 2012 har jeg hatt stort fokus p finne gode basics, men n fler jeg at det er p tide med et par ting som skiller seg litt ut. Den svarte vesken som alltid kommer til vre en favoritt er p plass, de svarte pumpsene, de klassiske solbrillene ogs videre, men hva med fargesterke vesker og statement-sko? Litt lekent m det vre, selv for den som liker rene linjer. Innkjpslisten for 2013 er klar!

- Jeg skal ikke vre s fornuftig nr det kommer til vesker. For n som den svarte favoritten er p plass er det rom for mer farger og moro!

- Sko skal vre gy, s da er det p tide med noe litt gyere enn svart og pudderfarger.

- Enkle gensere er kjempefint, men det er utrolig kult med et par gensere som kan gjre et helt antrekk ogs.

- Skjrt er et plagg som jeg bruker veldig mye, men likevel har jeg nesten ingen. Skjrt utenom det vanlige er herved sist ut p listen!

-

I've been all about finding the good basics in 2012, but now I feel that it's time for a few items that can stand out a bit. The big black bag is always going to be a favorite, so is the black pumps, the classic sunglasses and so on. But what about colorful bags and statement shoes? The shopping list for 2013 is ready!

- I will not be all that sensible when it comes to bags. Now that the black favorite is in place, there is room for more color and fun!

- Shoes should be fun, so it's time for something a little more fun than black and nude.

- Simple sweaters are terrific, but it's incredibly cool with a couple of sweaters that can make the whole outfit too.

- I wear skirts a lot, but still I have almost none. Extraordinary skirts is hereby the last item on my list!
