Outfit | Bare midriff

  Photo/Daniel Aar.

Wearing heels and denim suit from H&M, cut off turtleneck from Bruuns Bazaar, bag from Decadent, sunglasses from Ray-Ban and watch from Guess.

Ok, s dette er en av de trendene jeg aldri trodde at jeg skulle kaste meg over. Magetoppen hrer liksom 90-tallet til og som regel ser det jo alt annet enn pent ut. Likevel endte jeg, som dere ser, midt i magetopp-fella. Igjen. Det er noe med det kombinere dette utrolig stygt omtalte plagget med elegante ting som dress og hler som gjr at jeg synes magetopp kan vre veldig kult. Ogs fr den jo frem en hel haug med morsomme minner! Hva med dere? Er magetoppen fortsatt p nei-listen?

-

Ok, so this is one of those trends that I never thought I'd give a try. The crop top belongs to the 90s and usually it looks really bad, honestly. Still I ended up with giving it a another try. It's something about that really unpopular piece with more elegant pieces like a suit and heels that makes the crop top really cool in my eyes. And it brings back great memories too! How about you? Is the crop top still on your hate list?

Outfit | Khaki bomber

Wearing sneakers from Nike, old dress from H&M, bomber jacket from Samse & Samse, bag from Decadent and sunglasses from Carrera.

Bomberjakken er kommet for bli og jeg er fortsatt alt annet enn lei. N er det endelig en militrgrnn variant i garderoben ogs, og denne blir definitivt med p bde kalde sommerkvelder og hstdagene som snart er p vei. Jeg liker aller best kombinere bomberjakkene med kjoler og skjrt, men de fungerer absolutt godt til jeans ogs.

SHOP MY CLOSET.

-

The bomber jacket is here to stay and I'm not tired of it at all. Now I finally have a green one in my closet too, and this is going to follow me on both cold summer nights and during fall. I love to combine the bomber jacket with dresses and skirts, but they work great with jeans too. 

One night

I dag skal jeg og kjresten unne oss en natt p hotell og jeg gleder meg skikkelig! Dette er med i clutchen.

I Oslo har det regnet i to dager n, s det var perfekt timing kjpe ny bukse i gr. Baggy jeans, collegegenser og lave sko slr aldri feil en regnvrsdag p jobb.

-

It's been raining a lot in Oslo, so buying a pair of new jeans yesterday was perfect timing. Baggy jeans, sweater and low shoes never goes wrong a rainy day at work. 

Acne Pop Jeans

Du vet nr du har sett p et plagg s lenge og endelig kjper det? Denne modellen prvde jeg frste gang for over et r siden, men jeg har liksom aldri tatt meg rd til kjpe den. Vanligvis kan man jo finne en rimeligere ersatter i kjedebutikkene, men denne modellen har virkelig ingen erstatter. I dag fant jeg endelig den perfekte vasken og riktig strrelse, s da ga jeg rett og slett opp. Jeg mtte ha den og jeg vet at den kommer til bli blant de mest brukte plaggene i skapet. Jeg mener, se p den da.

Forresten, se til hyre! N kan dere shoppe fra skapet mitt p min helt egne butikk. Hva synes dere?

-

You know when you've been wanting a piece for so long and finally buys it? This model I tried the first time over a year ago, but I really never felt like paying that much money for it. Usually you can find a cheaper replacement in another store, but this model is truly something which you can't find anywhere else. Today I finally found the perfect wash in my size too, so I just gave up. I had to have it and I know that it'll be one of those pieces in my wardrobe that gets used a lot. I mean, look at it.

Dry nails in 60 seconds

En av grunnene til at det ofte kan g flere uker mellom hver gang jeg lakker neglene er at det tar s himla lang tid. I dag fikk jeg redningen! N har H&M ftt inn denne sprayen som du bare sprayer neglene med etter at lakken har vrt p i 60 sekunder, s er du ready to go. Genialt? Ogs koster den bare 39 kroner. Jeg elsker snne sm morsomme kupp!

-

One of the reasons why I often wait like several weeks before polishing my nails again is that it just takes so much time. Today I found the answer to my prayers! H&M just got this spray that you put on your nails 60 seconds after polishing them, and you're ready to go. Genius or what? And it's really cheap too. I just love small and fun bargains like that!

Nr det kommer til dette sprsmlet hos garancedore.fr, s ser dere vel ganske tydelig hva jeg foretrekker. Jeg liker de aller fleste plagg litt for store, spesielt nr det kommer til bukser og shorts. Hva med dere? Tight eller loose? 

-

When it comes to this question at garancedore.fr, I guess you can see what I prefer. I actually prefer most pieces a bit oversized, especially bottoms. How about you guys? Loose fit or tight?

There's nothing like kicking off a Sunday with coffee and a huge sugar bomb. I mean, the weekend is for enjoying. Wish you a great Sunday!

Outfit | A dash of pink

Rosa er og blir favorittfargen min og i dag ble det bde rosa t-skjorte og solbriller. Anbefaler stikke innom Weekday en tur om dere er p jakt etter basics forresten. De har salg p en drss fine t-skjorter! Blant andre den jeg har p meg.

-

Pink is my all time favourite color and today I went for both pink t-shirt and sunglasses.

On Birkenstock sandals

Photo/Thefashionguitar.

Alle har vel et eller annet forhold til Birkenstock. Det jeg husker best er sandaler i alle varianter p fttene til bestevenninen min. Hun srget alltid for kjpe med et par eller to nr hun var i Tyskland.

Mitt frste mte med Birkenstock i motebilder derimot, fikk jeg en gang jeg var p ferie med mamma og pappa i Sverige for mange r siden. Hjemme hadde jeg ikke sett Birkenstock p et eneste ung menneske, men der krydde det akkurat den sesongen. Den ene fashionistaen etter den andre. Med Birkenstock-sandaler. N er de tilbake! Takket vre disse sandalene fra Céline. Jeg var egentlig aldri i tvil om jeg skulle kjpe et par. De er komfortable, kule og oversized. Hva med dere, hate it or love it? Jeg bestilte de forresten p asos.com, billigere enn i Norge selv etter frakt og alle ekstra avgifter.

-

I guess everyone has some kind of relationship with Birkenstock. What I remember best is various sandals on the feet of my best friend's mother. She always made sure to buy a pair or two when visiting Germany.

My first meeting with Birkenstock the fashion way however, happened when visiting Sweden with my mom and dad years ago. At home I never spotted Birkenstock sandals on young people, but in Sweden there was plenty that season. One fashionista after the other. With Birkenstock sandals. Now they're back! Thanks to these sandals from Céline. I never really doubted whether or not I should buy them. They're comfortable, cool and oversized. How about you guys, hate it or love it? I ordered them at asos.com btw, best offer online. 

Outfit | The statement bag

Crazy tilbehr er noe jeg alltid har vrt veldig glad i. Det er imidlertid ikke s ofte jeg finner noe som virkelig faller i smak, s garderoben bestr for det meste av enklere ting. Denne vesken derimot, faller definitivt under kategorien crazy. Perfekt til sprite opp enkle antrekk!

-

I've always loved crazy accessories. However it's not that easy to find something that I really like, so my wardrobe is mostly based on more minimalistic pieces. This bag though, is definitely crazy. Perfect to add to any kind of boring og minimalistic outfit.

Stella feature

Det er fortsatt utrolig rart se seg selv i et magasin. I tillegg er det selvflgelig utrolig gy. I tre nummer av Stella kommer jeg til snakke litt om et par nkkeltrender denne sommeren. Frst ut er helhvitt! S ta med dere bladet fra bladhyllene over helgen om dere er nysgjerrige p hvordan jeg helst styler denne trenden. Jeg lurer p hvordan dere helst ville stylet det helvite antrekket?

-

It's still very weird to see myself in a magazine. Also, it's so much fun! In three issues of Norwegian Stella I'll talk about a few key trends this summer. As you can see, all white is first to go! How would you style all white?

Outfit | Summer easy

N kom jeg nettopp hjem etter ha vrt p visning for Vivikes splitter nye merke, Days Like This. Veldig spennende nr et merke plutselig tr satse p noe helt nytt og det er virkelig bare glede seg. Antrekket mitt ble enkelt og luftig, siden solen steker i Oslo i dag. Elsker store skjorter i varmen! Skeiet ut med bare gull p tilbehrsfronten ogs, skikkelig uvant! Hva synes dere?

-

I just arrived from a fashion show and the weather is really nice in Oslo today. Denim shorts and a big white shirt was the natural choice! Went for all gold accessories for a change too. What do you think? 

Sunday tip

Jeg har jo akkurat ftt meg en kjempefin veske, men m bare tipse dere om denne clutchen. Den kunne like gjerne kostet flere tusen, men den er fra H&M og koster bare 199 kroner. Jeg liker ha en mindre veske oppi de strre veskene mine med de tingene jeg bruker mest, s denne blir med i Decadent-vesken ogs.

- Ray-Ban Pocket sunglasses

- Coconut lip gloss from The Body Shop 

- Hand cream from Chanel

-

I just blogged about my new bag, but I just have to share this tip with you. This clutch might as well be a designer bag and cost a lot of money, but it's actually from H&M and the price tag is only 199 NOK. I also love keeping a smaller bag in my larger bags with the stuff I use the most, so this one will be travelling around in my Decadent bag too.

Outfit | Ballerina

Photo/Marie Nord.

Wearing ballerinas from Din Sko, jeans from Bik Bok, bag from Decadent, jacket from Gina Tricot, tank top from Acne and sunglasses from Ray-Ban.

Jeg har sverget til loafers de siste rene, men n mtte jeg bare teste ballerinas ogs. Dette er faktisk mitt aller frste par! Veldig deilig med et par luftigere sko som ikke gir gnagsr. Perfekte til ha i vesken nr hlene er p ogs! N er det imidlertid middag og familietid. Nyt lrdagen!

-

I'm been using loafers a lot the last couple of years, but now I just had to give the ballerina shoes a try too. This is actually my very first pair! So nice with a more open shoes that's even more comfortable than loafers. Perfect to keep in the bag when wearing heels too! Now however, it's time for dinner and family time. Enjoy your Saturday!

That bag

Den store svarte vesken min fra Decadent er med meg uansett hvor jeg drar. Det er egentlig veldig sjelden at jeg finner en veske jeg virkelig liker og nr det kommer til min Big Shopper har jeg liksom aldri funnet et like bra alternativ. I tillegg er jeg helt avhengig av at den tler litt, da jeg ikke er den som er mest forsiktig med veskene sine.

Nr jeg kjper en ny veske, s er det fordi den skal brukes masse. I det siste har jeg merket behovet for en litt mindre veske, og jeg er helt forelsket i denne mindre varianten fra Decadent allerede. De er s solide og jeg bare vet at denne kan jeg stappe full av alt jeg vanligvis drasser p og ta med meg overalt uten at det pvirker skinnet p vesken. Gleder meg til vise dere et antrekk med vesken senere!

-

My big black bag from Decadent travels with me wherever I go. I rarely find a bag that I truly love and when it comes to my Big Shopper I've never really found another good alternative. Also my bags have to bear a lot, because I'm really not all that gentle with my bags. 

When I buy a new bag, it's because I'm going to use it a lot. However I've been wanting a smaller bag, and I'm already in love with this smaller version from Decadent. They're so solid and I just know that I can carry it around full of all my stuff without hurting the leather. Can't wait to show you an outfit with this bag later on! 

Outfit | Pink lips

Photo/Kaja Wang.

Wearing sneakers from Nike, dress from Only, sweater from Bik Bok, jacket from Gina Tricot, bag from Decadent, sunglasses from Ray-Ban and lipstick from The Body Shop.

Leppestift hrer til sjeldenhetene her i grden, men middag med gode venninner fortjener litt ekstra pynt. Joggesko mtte imidlertid til, hvis ikke tror jeg at jeg hadde flt meg litt for jentete.

-

I don't wear a lot of lipstick, but dinner with good friends deserves pink lips. I had to put on a pair of sneakers though, can't get too girly. 

Which one?

Jeg er ikke avhengig av neglelakk p fingrene, men tre derimot. Tr er s utrolig lite pent, s det er sjelden jeg gr en sommerdag ut lakk p trne. N er sprsmlet hvilken jeg skal ha p? Bel-Argus, Lilis, Azuré eller Frenzy?

-

I'm not addicted to wearing polish on my finger nails, but the toes. Oh my God. Toes are so not nice, so I rarely go out on a summer day without polish on my toes. Now the question is which color I should wear? Bel-Argus, Lilis, Azuré or Frenzy?

Outfit | For work

Jeg er nok ikke den eneste som elsker hvitt sammen med denim p varme dager. Og nr jeg vet at jeg skal g mye p jobb er det lse plagg og flate sko som gjelder. N har jeg endelig funnet et par ballerinas ogs, s kanskje Conversene fr seg et velfortjent avbrekk. Hper dere har en herlig onsdag!

-

I'm probably not the only one who's a big fan of white with denim on warm days. And when I now I'll be doing a lot of walking I always go for loose pieces and flats. I've finally found a pair of ballerinas too, so maybe my Converse will get a deserved break now. Hope you're having a great Wednesday!

Carpe Diiem

Jeg elsker denim, likevel har jeg bare hatt én denimskjorte. Det var imidlertid fr jeg s denne fra Surface To Air. Og jeg m bare tipse dere om nettbutikken hvor jeg fant den, for den viste seg nemlig vre fra Molde, som ikke er s langt fra hvor jeg vokste opp. Skikkelig mye fint og det er s gy nr det kommer litt nye butikker som ikke bare er Oslobasert.

-

I love denim, still I only have one denim shirt. That was before I spotted this one from Surface To Air, though. And I jsut have to say, you shoul check out carpediiem.no. Because the shop is actually based in a city not far from where I grew up and have a lot of great stuff. So fun with shops from somewhere else than the big cities.

Hvitt fles alltid s rent og delikat ut og nr jeg vknet i dag tidlig visste jeg bare at jeg ville ha p meg en stor, nyvasket hvit skjorte. En fra skapet til kjresten med andre ord.

-

White always feel so clean and delicate and when I woke up this morning the only thing I knew was that I wanted to wear a oversized and clean white shirt. One from my boyfriend's closet that means. 

12 favourites from the designer sales

1. Jeans from J Brand 2. Pumps from Miu Miu  3. Dress from Balenciaga  4. Flats from Chloé 5. Shorts from Raoul  6. Bag from Alexander Wang  7. Jacket from Sportmax  8. Sandals from Sam Edelman  9. Bag from The Row 10. Skirt from 3.1 Phillip Lim  11. Skirt from Akris  12. Jacket from T by Alexander Wang

Det er salg p stort sett alle de strste nettbutikkene og det er ikke akkurat enkelt holde seg unna nr ting du har sett p plutselig er tilgjengelig til halve prisen. Likevel har det gtt overraskende bra hittil, og det eneste jeg har klikket hjem er en genser fra Brian Lichtenberg. Som ikke var p salg engang. Snn er det nr man forviller seg videre fra salgssidene. Jeg er som regel alltid p jakt etter tidlse ting nr det er salg, som skinnskjrt og skinnjakker. Men jeg har liksom ikke klart bestemme meg enda. Hva med dere, har dere handlet noe? 

-

The designer sales are on and it isn't exactly easy to keep away. Still I've managed so far, and the only thing I've purchased is a sweater from Brian Lichtenberh which wasn't even on sale. That's how it goes when you start wandering out of the sale sites. Anyways, I'm always looking for something timeless when browsing the sales sites, like leather skirts and leather jackets. But I just haven't decided yet. How about you guys, have you done some sale shopping?

 

Stylemag feature

Denne datoen m nesten skrives ned, for dette er Minas aller frste gang p sarastrand.no. For en stund siden var vi p shoot med Stylemag og n kan dere alts lese hvordan jeg synes det er kombinere jobb og blogg med familielivet. Vi hadde en skikkelig morsom dag med sminke og bilder, og som dere kanskje ser elsket Mina posere foran kamera. Utrolig morsomt!

-

It's almost like I'll have to write down this date, because this is Mina's first time on sarastrand.no. A while ago we we're shooting with Norwegian Stylemag, so if you get a hold of the magazine you can read how I feel about combining work and blog with the family life. The shoot was so much fun and as you can see, Mina loved to be in front of the camera. Incredible!

Outfit | Comfortable it is

Photo/Elise Gabrielsen.

Wearing sneakers from Adidas, dress from H&M, shirt from Zara, bag from Decadent, jacket from Gina Tricot and sunglasses from Ray-Ban.

Med bena godt plantet p norsk jord igjen m jeg si at jeg savner La Gacilly litt allerede. Det er ikke hver dag man fr beske de sm stedene hvor man nesten ikke kommer seg frem med fly, s jeg er veldig glad for at jeg fikk muligheten til vre med Yves Rocher.

I tillegg fikk jeg virkelig testet forskjellige versjoner av fasjonabelt og komfortabelt. Tips nummer én m vre skaffe seg et par litt crazy joggesko og bare bruke dem sammen med alt. Til og med en elegant kjole som man egentlig forventer se sammen med noe helt annet enn joggesko.

-

With my feet back on Norwegian ground I must admit I miss La Gacilly a bit already. It's not every day you get the chance to visit those small places where almost can't get by airplane, so I'm really glad that Yves Rocher gave me the chance.

Also I really got to try out that fashionable and comfortable thing. And my number one tip must be to get a hold of some crazy sneakers and just wear them with anything. Even a elegant dress that you imagine with something totally different from sneakers.

La Gacilly vol.2

N skulle jeg jo egentlig ha vrt tilbake i Norge, men det som skulle vre en mellomlanding i Paris ble til en natt i Paris. Jeg har aldri opplevd s drlig service som med Air France, men heldigvis har vi hatt en helt herlig tur fr alt styret. I tillegg fikk jeg og Josefine brukt sinetrynet og vist litt girl power. Det er jo aldri feil!

La Gacilly og Yves Rocher har i alle fall gitt oss minner for livet og det vrt s deilig vre p tur. Jeg, Cathrine og Elise hadde den koseligste natten med bare tre timer svn, men likevel ble den hvite blazeren med ut i Paris gater i natt. Det er noe helt spesielt med kunne sitte p en liten restaurant midt i gaten og nyte fransk mat. Likevel er det p tide prve komme seg hjem igjen en gang til.

-

So now I should have been back in Norway, but what was supposed to be a short stop in Paris turned into a night in Paris. I've never experienced worse service than we did with Air France, but luckily we have been having the best time before all that. But then again me and Josefine got to show off our angry face and demonstrate a little girl power. Which is never wrong!

La Gacilly and Yves Rocher gave us so nice memories and it's been a great trip. So even though me, Cathrine and Elise only slept for like three hours the white blazer came along for a walk in the streets of Paris tonight. It's something magical about sitting in a small restaurant in the middle of the street eating delicious food. But now we'll try to get back home again.

Outfit | Blanc

P hoto/Cathrine Heienberg.

Wearing boots from Choies, skirt from Acne, parka from Vivikes, t-shirt from Gina Tricot, bag from Decadent, sunglasses from Ray-Ban, necklace from Efva Attling and watch from Guess.

Det hvite skjrtet er ikke det enkleste plagget jeg har i skapet, men jeg tror trikset er ikke tenke for mye p at det faktisk er hvitt. Fr jeg, Cathrine og Elise dro til byen i dag var den eneste tanken at jeg ville ha p meg parkasen og siden jeg bare hadde med to t-skjorter ble valget ganske enkelt. Plutselig kom det hvite skjrtet til sin rett ogs! Det gjelder virkelig ikke overtenke ting.

-

The white skirt isn't the easiest piece to style, but I think the trick is to not focus on the white color. Before me, Cathrine and Elise went to town I just thought I really want to wear the parka, and since I only brought like two t-shirts the choice was quite simple. And suddently the white skirt made it to! You really need to not over think it.

La Gacilly vol.1

I La Gacilly er det strlende sol og det er virkelig vakkert her. Det er blomster og deilige dufter overalt og man kan se sm sjarmerende hus rundt hvert hjrne.

-

In La Gacilly the sun is shining and I'm just back from the spa. I also went for a swim in the pool and almost fell asleep at the balcony afterwardst. It's really so beautiful here and we're having a great time!

Jeg har ankommet La Gacilly sammen med Yves Rocher og en gjeng bloggere. Her er helt magisk og jeg gleder meg til vise dere flere bilder!

I've arrived France and La Gacilly with Yves Rocher and a bunch of bloggers. It's really magical here and I can't wait to show you more photos!

Packing for the short summer trip

1.  Jacket from Gina Tricot 2. Shirt from Zara (similar here3. Shorts from Levi's 4. Sunglasses from Ray-Ban 5. Shoes from Converse.

Since I'm not the only one who has trouble with packing for those short trips I thought I should share a few tips. The first thing I think about is the travel outfit. And since the security at airports are so high, I just leave all unnecessary accessories. Such as heavy jewelry, headwear, buckles on boots and so on. You can say this is my typical travel uniform. Comfy, works with different temperatures, but still fashionable.

This time I'm leaving for France and it's not the kind of trip where the cosmetics are left at home. Still, the products you don't use is really not worth the extra weight. So on shorter trips I tend to stick to my favourites. You don't want to spend too much time in the bathroom anyway, so it's nice to use the stuff you're familiar with.

1. Sunglasses from Carerra 2. Lip balm from Korres 3. Folding sunglasses from Ray-Ban 4. Bikini top from H&M 5. Jeans from Gina Tricot 6. Heels from Alexander Wang 7. Bracelets from Efva Attling and Dyrberg/Kern 8. Watch from Guess 9. Cap from Acne 10. Ghd Eclipse 11. Dress from H&M

Even though the trip is short there's usually some waiting. So if there's one thing I always bring it's headphones, iPad and magazines (of course the magazines is more fun to buy at the airport). Then there's the outfits. This is the part where I've failed a lot. I used to bring too much, but then I brought too little. Well, it all depends on the planning. Try to figure out the outfits before you leave and check out what kind of temperatures you're heading to. And of course, remember you're underwear, socks and all that. My regular tip is comfortable day outfits and some more dressed up outfits for the evenings. This depends on the activities you're doing of course. Fahsion week needs a whole other packing strategy for example. But think smart and just remember that too heavy bags really sucks to carry around.

Happy weekend

P mandag reiser jeg til Frankrike, s n lader jeg opp med deilig helgefrokost og Vogue Paris p iPaden. Det strste problemet blir nok pakkingen, som vanlig. I det siste har jeg faktisk endt opp med ta med meg altfor lite, men denne gangen skal jeg planlegge litt bedre. Kanskje det hadde vrt interessant med et innlegg om pakking til mindre reiser?

-

On Monday I'm leaving for France, so now I'm charging the batteries with a nice weekend breakfast and Vogue Paris on the iPad. My biggest problem will be the packing, for sure. Lately I've actually packed too little when travelling, but this time I'll plan it better. Maybe I'll make a post about packing for smaller trips? Would that be interesting?
