Det begynner bli skikkelig kjlig ute, og som hver hst merker jeg at garderoben mangler visse ting. Som pfyll av kokosolje. Det er genialt til bde trr hud og trt hr. Og da mener jeg r kokos, som ikke er tilsatt noe annet. Sist fant jeg en krukke p en Asiabutikk etter tips fra ssteren og moren min, og jeg er frelst. R kokosolje/smr er det beste!

It's starting to get really cold outside, and like every fall I'm missing certain items. Like more coconut oil. It's great for both skin and hair. And I mean coconut, nothing else added. Last time I just bought a bottle from a random Asian shop, and there's nothing like it. Coconut oil/butter is the best!

Nr jeg har p meg smykker er de enten gigantiske, eller bittesm. Og de siste dagene har dette lille smykket fra Marte Frisnes hengt rundt halsen. Det blir s mye mer personlig med en gang det str noe p smykkene. Kanskje ekstra koselig nr det er forbokstaven til datteren min.

When I wear necklaces they're either gigantic, or super small. And the last few days this tiny necklace from Marte Frisnes has been hanging around my neck. It gets a lot more personal the minute there's written something on it. Especially when it's the first letter in my daughter's name.

Outfit | Casual Saturday

Helgeuniformen bestr av en digg ullgenser, skinnskjrt og boots. Det vil si, den blir snart byttet ut med ullsokker og koseklr. For denne lrdagskvelden skal nytes inne med gode venner.

My weekend uniform. A nice knitted sweater, leather skirt and boots. I'll never get tired of this combo.

Slip-ons

Jeg har ikke hatt Vans p beina siden videregende, men n ser det ut som de m gjre et comeback i skohylla. Helst i leopard. Egentlig har jeg gtt trodd at nsket skulle g relativt fort over, men bde Pinterest og favorittbloggene mine srger for at jeg ikke fr de ut av hodet. S n har jeg bestemt meg for skaffe meg et par. Rett fr vinteren kommer! Hva synes dere?

I haven't wore Vans in years, but it looks like they have to make a comeback. In leopard. I didn't think the wish would hold up, though. But both Pinterest and my favorite blogs make sure I can't get them out of my mind. There's slip-ons everywhere! So now I've decided to seriously look for a pair. Right before winter sets in! What do you guys think?

Basic boots

Jeg vet ikke hvor mange ganger jeg har snakket om basic t-skjorter og hvor vanskelig det er finne de perfekte. Basic boots derimot, har jeg aldri nevnt. Og det er, om mulig, enda vanskeligere finne. Spesielt ettersom jeg er utrolig kresen p hler. De har alltid en eller annen snodig form! Derfor har jeg stort sett endt opp med et par hstboots som er greie nok. Disse fra Stockholm Design Group derimot, jeg digger dem. De gr akkurat langt nok opp p leggen og hlen er perfekt. Selges hos Eurosko for den som mtte lure p det.

-

I don't know how many times I've talked about basic t-shirts and how difficult it is to find the perfect ones. Basics boots however, I've never mentioned. And they're, if possible, even more difficult to find. Especially since I have a issue with heels. The shape is never good. That's why I always end up with buying some that's just good enough. These from Stockholm Design Group however, I love! They have the perfect length and the heel is so nice. Come on fall!

Outfit | Bomber and mirrors

Wearing boots from Aldo, leather skirt from Vila, bag from Decadent, knit from Bik Bok, jacket from Samse & Samse and sunglasses from Ray-Ban.

Jeg skulle nske temperaturene var som de er n strre deler av ret. For det kunne ha p seg skjrt med strikkegenser er en av mine absolutte favoritter. Selv om jeg m innrmme at jeg mtte ty til nylonstrmpene i dag.

-

I wish the temperatures were like they are now more of the year. Because I just love being able to wear skirts with knit! Even though I have to admit I wore nylon leggings today.

NYFW

NYFW er godt i gang og jeg m innrmme at jeg flger mer med p hva som skjer p gaten enn p catwalken. Det gr selvflgelig ikke an glemme kolleksjonene helt, men det er noe helt spesielt nr du klikker innom sider som style.com og vogue.com for oppdage at galleriene med gatemotebilder er oppdatert. Det er virkelig da jeg skulle nske at jeg var der! Og forresten, jeg er endelig p Pinterest. Der legger jeg ut alle mine favorittbilder fra bde NYFW og moteukene som kommer.

-

NYFW is on and I have to admit that I'm more excited about what's happening on the street than on the catwalks. Of course, you can't forget the collections, but there's something special about visiting sites like style.com and vogue.com to find updated street style galleries. That's when you truly wish you were there! And btw, I'm finally on Pinterest. So follow my boards to see all my favorite looks from both NYFW and the following fashion weeks.

Outfit | Black layers

Wearing Birkenstocks, old dress from H&M, bag from Joseph, cropped sweater from Zara, hat from H&M and sunglasses from Ray-Ban.

Jeg er fortsatt ikke kvitt forkjlelsen, s her kommer tips for forkjlelsestrynet: caps og solbriller!

-

I'm still having a cold going on here, so here's today's tip: wear hat and sunglasses when you don't feel too good!

Ray-Ban Keyhole

Solen skinner og solbrillemanien fortsetter. Selv om jeg har en tendens til g for wayfarer eller pilot, har jeg ogs en ting for runde rammer. Og denne modellen er rund, uten bli for rund p en mte. Det blir nok ikke lenge fr disse dukker opp i et antrekk!

-

The sun is still shining and my thing for sunglasses continues. Even though I tend to go for the classic wayfarer or pilot, I also love round frames. And this round model is round, without being too round. If you know what I mean. It won't be long until you see these in an outfit!

NCLA

Jeg har egentlig aldri vrt en neglelakkjente, men det siste ret har det mildt sagt tatt litt av. Likevel er det et par farger jeg ender opp med litt oftere enn andre. Svart, for eksempel. N var den forrige tom, s jeg tenkte jeg skulle benytte sjansen og prve et nytt merke. Og siden jeg har en tendens til falle for fine flasker, endte jeg opp med disse fra NCLA. Anbefales!

-

I've never been crazy about nail polish, but that has changed the last year. I've used it a loot! Still there's a couple of colors I use a lot more than others. Black, for example. The other one was empty, so I though I'd take the chance to try a new brand. And since I tend to fall for nice bottles, I ended up with these from NCLA. Recommended!

Outfit | Trench and fuzz

Wearing Converse, leather skirt from Vila, t-shirt from Arnie Says:, bag from Joseph, trench coat from Selected Femme and sunglasses from Ray-Ban.

Det er virkelig noe helt spesielt nr man lufter en ny veske for frste gang. Og i dag srget bde vesken og kpen for at jeg flte meg fresh til tross for rennende nese og halslve yne. Ingen tvil om at klrne pvirker humret! I alle fall ikke i dag.

-

It's something truly special about taking your new bag out for the first time. Both the bag and the coat made sure that I felt fresh, no matter how sick I feel. It's weird how the clothes affect your mood!

The trench

Er det en jakke som alltid vil vre med i motebildet, s er det trenchen. Den finnes i uendelig mange forskjellige varianter og farger, og den er virkelig en evig klassiker. Likevel har jeg bare hatt én. Og den var noe s kjedelig som svart. N har jeg imidlertid ftt trench p hjernen. En beige er p vei i posten og i gr ble en olivengrnn med hjem fra jobb. S se opp for mye tench-jakker p bloggen denne hsten!

-

If there's one kind of coat that will always be fashionable, it's the trench coat. I think it's the only coat that's been made in so many different shapes and colors, it's one of those true classics. Still I've only owned one. And it was boring and black. Now however, I've got trench on my brain. A beige one is on it's way and yesterday I found a olive green one that I just couldn't leave behind. Watch out for trench coats on the blog this fall!

Outfit | The pink beanie

Wearing my sister's leopard loafers from Ecco, jeans from Acne, sweater from Bik Bok, bag from Decadent, sunglasses from Ray-Ban and beanie from FWSS.

Jeg er i lesund og jobber noen dager, s akkurat n er varmt og komfortabelt frsteprioritet. Leopardmnster kombinert med rosa er min siste obsession etter ha sett dette bildet.

-

I'm working in my hometown a couple of days, so right now warm and comfortable is the key. And leopard pattern combined with pink is my latest obsession after seeing this photo.

Joseph bag

Basic-veskene er p plass, men jeg har liksom aldri funnet den morsomme kule vesken som gjr et helt svart antrekk mye mer spennende og som skiller seg litt fra de andre jeg har. Denne vesken har de rene linjene som jeg er s glad i, men sammen med sauepels p skulderremen srget Joseph for kribling i magen med én gang jeg s den. Vanligvis tenker jeg meg om i flere dager fr kjp som dette, men her var det ikke tvil i det hele tatt. Jeg kjpte den hos my-wardrobe, heldigvis. For p net-a-porter er den 1400,- dyrere allerede fr avgifter. I tilfelle noen andre skulle bli fristet.

I already have the basic bags that I need, but I haven't found that fun and cool bag that makes an all black outfit pop and that's just different from everything else in my closet. This bag has those clean lines that I love, but along with the Mongolian sheep skin on the strap Joseph made sure I had butterflies in my stomack the minute I spotted it. Usually I go around thinking about decisions like this for days, but this time there were no doubt in my mind. I bought it at my-wardrobe, luckily. Because it was over 100$ more before taxes at net-a-porter. Just in case any of you get tempted too.
