Snekkerbuksen har blitt hentet frem igjen fra bakerst i skapet, s i dag ble i dag ble jobbantrekket komfortabelt fra topp til t. Converse, snekkerbukse og iskaffe saves the day!

-

Finally I took my dungarees for a ride again, so today I was all comfy at work. Converse, dungarees and ice coffee saves the day!

Cookies and lookbooks

Forrige uke var det presseuke her i Oslo, s i kveld har jeg kost med meg kaffe, kjeks og lookbooks. Denne er fra COS og det er uten tvil mye glede seg til!

-

Last week was press week here in Oslo, so tonight I've been enjoying coffee, cookies and lookbooks. This one is from COS and there's so much nice stuff coming up! But first there's summer.

 

A new classic #3

Er det en type sko jeg aldri fr nok av, s er det Converse. Jeg har hatt flere forskjellige farger opp gjennom rene, men denne gangen gikk jeg for gr. Jeg fant dem hos Oslos nyeste og fresheste skobutikk, som jeg anbefaler dere stikke innom. Bde Nilson Shoes, DinSko, Ecco, Skopunkten og Vagabond er under samme tak, noe som var utrolig deilig. Butikken ligger i Karl Johans gate 6b. Dere som ikke bor i Oslo kan ta en titt her.

I'll never get too many pairs. And through the years I've been wearing everything from yellow and pink, to black and red. This time though, I went for grey. No doubt it'll be a winner during the spring and summer!

Outfit | Yellow sneakers

Gult er kult! Endelig et par fargesterke sneakers i hus. Det var veldig uvant skulle style denne typen sko, men med all black gr det meste. Hper dere fr en herlig start p helgen!

-

I love yellow! And finally there's a pair of colorful sneakers in my wardrobe. It was so weird to suddently be styling these kind of shoes, but everything goes with black and white. Wish you a great Friday!

Spring uniform

1. Brian Lichtenberg  2. The Row  3. Acne  4. Balmain  5. H&M

Hver vr gr jeg til anskaffelse av en passe crazy bukse. Det er et av de perfekte plaggene i vrgarderoben for min del. Noe som spriter opp alle baseplaggene som henger i skapet gjennom hele ret. Akkurat n drmmer jeg om denne fra Balmain!

-

Every spring I go out and buy a pair of crazy pants. It's the perfect addition to the spring wardrobe in my case. Something that lightens up all those basic pieces I got hanging in my closet all year around. Right now I'm dreaming of this one from Balmain!

Outfit | Big split

Det er skikkelig deilig vr i Oslo og endelig kan jeg legge igjen ullstrmpebuksen hjemme. Det er fremdeles en ganske kjlig vind, men det gjr ingenting nr man kan style skjrt med strikk og blazer. En av mine favorittkombinasjoner!

-

The weather in Oslo is really great today and I can finally leave my woolen leggings at home. It's still quite chilly though, but it doesn't matter when you can style a skirt with knit and blazer. One of my favourite combinations!

Refreshing Monday tip

De som har lest bloggen min en stund har nok ftt med seg at jeg elsker The Body Shop. I dag lanserte de en ny Cruelty Free-kolleksjon for stoppe dyretesting, ikke bare i EU (skriv under her du ogs). Men i tillegg til deilige produkter fra Cruelty Free Collection ble denne ansiktsvasken ogs med meg hjem. Noe s deilig! Friskere flelse skal du lete lenge etter. Huden kjennes kald og kjemperen ut! Passet utmerket p en mandag med mye jobb.

Those of you that have been reading my blog for a while know that I love The Body Shop. Today they launched their new Cruelty Free Collection to stop animal testing, not only in EU (sign the campaign here). But in addition to delicious products from the Cruelty Free Collection I also brought this face wash home with me. It so nice! You won't find anything more refreshing. The skin feels really cold and clean after using it. Perfect for a long working Monday.

 

 

Lost and found

Det er alltid ett par solbriller som blir mer brukt enn andre, og i mitt tilfelle er det er den klassiske modellen Wayfarer fra Ray Ban. Fr var det imidlertid et par briller fra Gucci som alltid l i vesken. De hadde vrt borte i over et r fr de plutselig dukket opp igjen p Sunnmre. N blir det vanskelig velge fremover!

-

There's always this one pair of sunglasses that you use more than others, and in my case it's the classic model Wayfarer from Ray Ban. However, this was before I lost these Gucci sunglasses. It's been over a year since I saw them and now they suddently appeared in my hometown. Going to be hard to choose now!

 

Outfit | White skirt

Det er frste gang denne sesongen at jeg har p meg skjrt, s n kan jeg offisielt nske vren velkommen! Skikkelig herlig. Det skal sies at en strmpebukse mtte til, men snn er det jo gjerne p sommeren ogs her i Norge. Hper dere har en herlig helg!

-

It's the first time this season that I'm wearing a skirt, so now the spring is officially here! Feels so incredibly nice. I have to admit I wore leggings, but that' how it works even in the summer here in Norway. Anyways, hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

Costume feature

Tusen takk til Costume for denne fine saken! Jeg m bare si at det er skikkelig stas f hele to sider i et av favorittmagasinene mine. Ogs var det jo en helt herlig gjeng vre p shoot med ogs. Se og les mer i bladet som er i hyllene p fredag!

-

Thank you so much Costume for this feature! I must say it's a big honor to get two pages in one of my favourite magazines. And the crew made the shoot really great too. Fun, fun, fun!

Outfit | Big fuzz

Wearing Converse, jeans from Lindex, bag from Tosca Blu, biker jacket from Gina Tricot, sunglasses from Ray Ban and the big fuzzy sweater is from a Etsy-store called SuperTanya.

Det er kanskje ikke s mange som gr til anskaffelse av en gigantisk mohair-genser nr snen endelig har smeltet, men jeg mtte gjre et unntak for denne. Det er garantert den gyeste genseren i skapet for yeblikket og jeg gleder meg til bruke den over skjrt p litt kjlige vrdager.

-

I guess it's not that usual to go get a gigantic mohair sweater like this when the snow finally melted, but I just had to have this one. It's definitely the craziest sweater in my closet right now and I can't wait to wear it ober skirts on those cold, but sunny days.

Lunch at home

Det fles som evigheter siden sist jeg hadde hjemmekontor, s i dag har jeg virkelig kost meg med lunsjpause helt alene. Sjekk ut oppskriften p smoothien hos Mija forresten, den var skikkelig god!

-

It feels like forever since I worked at home, so today I really enjoyed having lunch all by myself. You should check out the recipe for this dish at Mija's btw, really good!

My new watch

Jeg er s heldig ha en mamma med god smak i tillegg til at hun er veldig glad i gi bort ting. Denne klokken ble med hjem fra Sunnmre og har vrt p armen siden jeg fikk den. Jeg digger det brune stlet, s n begynner jakten p mer brunt stl som kan brukes sammen med klokken. Har dere noen tips?

-

I'm lucky to have a mom with such good taste and a giving heart. This watch went home with me from my hometown and has been on my wrist ever since. I love the brown metal, so now I'm looking for more like it to wear with the new watch. Any ideas?

Outfit | All practical

Photo/Thyri Dale.

Wearing boots from Aldo, jeans from Bik Bok, tank from Acne, second hand coat, beanie from Analog, sunglasses from Ray Ban and bag from Decadent.

Lue og sammenleggbare Ray Ban-briller ble det eneste riktige med drlig hrdag og mye hit og dit. De solbrillene er jo helt geniale!

-

Beanie and Ray Ban Pocket was the only way to go with bad hair day and a going here and there. I mean, those sunglasses are genious!

Moroccanoil light

Jeg har sverget til Moroccanoil temmelig lenge og n har jeg prvd nye Moroccanoil Light som har akkurat samme effekt, bare at den er lettere. Og jeg m si at jeg liker den enda bedre enn originalen! Den fles rett og slett lettere og mindre fett ha i hret. S den anbefaler jeg absolutt gi et forsk!

-

I've been using Moroccanoil for quite some time now and just tried the new Moroccanoil Light for a few days. It does exactly the same, except it's lighter, and I must say I like that one even better than the original. It just feels lighter and less heavy in the hair, so I truly recommend that one if you're not sure which one to pick. 

Outfit | Back to basic

Wearing boots from Choies, jeans from Zapa, sweater from H&M, sunglasses from Ray Ban, bag from Decadent and blazer from H&M Conscious men's collection.

Av og til fler jeg bare for holde det enklest mulig og i dag ble det mange basics p én gang. I tillegg har jeg skaffet meg en ny klassiker, nemlig denne blazeren fra H&Ms Conscious-kolleksjon. Fra herreavdelingen vel og merke. Hva synes dere om kolleksjonen?

-

Sometimes I just feel like keeping it as simple as possible and today I went for a lot of basics all at once. And I actually got a hold of a new classic, this white blazer from H&M's Conscious collection. Men's department. What do you think about the collection?

Outfit | Beige it is

Wearing boots from Aldo, leather pants from Part Two, bag from Decadent, coat from Zapa, tank from Acne, sunglasses from H&M and necklace from Efva Attling.

Jeg har hatt skikkelig lyst p denne singletten fra Acne, men frem til for noen dager siden har den vrt utsolgt i small overalt. Heldigvis fikk jeg sikret meg en fra my-wardrobe.com fr det ble utsolgt. Ingenting som starte helgen med nye vrklr i strlende sol! Nyt fredagen!

-

I've been wanting this tank top from Acne so bad, but it's been sold out in my size everywhere I've looked. Luckily I managed to get my hands on one at my-wardrobe.com before they sold out too. There's nothing like facing the weekend with new spring clothes and a clear blue sky! Enjoy your Friday!

Summer make-up

Vinyl Candy palette from YSL | Essie Go Ginza | Essie Bond With Whomever

Sminkepungen begynner bli klar for sommer og i dag s jeg plutselig at jeg gr en veldig lilla sommer i mte. Jeg er ikke den som bruker mest sminke, men er det en ting jeg synes er gy leke litt med, s er det yeskygger og neglelakk. Neglelakk er mitt favoritt-tilbehret nr jeg ikke orker mye ha p meg s mye dill fr en dag p stranden, og i mine yne er sommerlige yeskygger perfekt til den naturlige looken uten den tunge yesminken. Hvilken yeskygge ville dere valgt?

-

My make-up bag is preparing for summer and today I realized that I'm facing a very lilac summer. I usually don't put on a lot of make-up, but if there's something I like you play with it's eyeshadows and nail polish. Nail polish is my favourite accessory when I don't feel like putting on a lot of jewelry before a day at the beach, and eyeshadows in colours like this is just perfect for the natural look with minimal make-up. What eyeshadow would you choose?
