It's no secret that I have a tendency to fall for clothes and accessories that are intended men. When Luxottica invited to a SS13 preview I fell, not surprisingly, for several of Persol's men glasses. The nice thing now is that the distinction between women and men's eyewear often can be slightly blurred, and the masculine trend means that there is no problem to buy men's glasses if that's the one you like best. Right now I seem to like everything with round lenses, even though I've swore to my classic Wayfarers from Ray Ban lately.

Yet I am certainly a fan of statement eyewear. Maybe in a bit more controlled way than what we have seen during recent fashion weeks. Bright colors, wrist full of equally colorful statement accessories and glasses on top gets a bit too much for me. But still, mirror lenses are incredibly cool and Ray Ban has made some really nice ones. I can already see them along with earthy colors, as I mentioned here. Still I'm a little unsure if this is just another trend that you'll regret buying into? We'll see when the sun comes out, but right now I have both round, classic and tortoise frames on my list.

Snn s det ut da en gjeng motebloggere tok med seg kameraene til Delicatessen p Majorstuen. En skikkelig koselig kveld med nydelig mat og flotte folk!


This is what it looked like when a bunch of fashion bloggers brought their cameras to a tapas bar called Delicatessen. Good times!

Winter refill

Jeg fikk en liten pminnelse om at den varme og fornuftige vinterjakken m i hus nr jeg s det tynne laget med sn i dag tidlig. Det er ikke alltid like enkelt se bra ut her i vinterland, men det er ikke umulig heller. Her er litt inspirasjon til vinterantrekkene.


Today's snow reminded me that I have to get a hold of that warm and reasonable winter coat. It's always easy to look cool up north during winter, but not impossible either. Here's some inspiration for the winter looks.

Street smart

En av mine strste inspirasjonskilder p hsten og vinteren er Elin Kling. Hun kan virkelig kunsten f luer, strikk, lave boots og vinterjakker til se skikkelig street smart ut.


One of my biggest inspirations during fall and winter is Elin Kling. She really know how to make beanies, knit, low boots and coats look street smart.

Jeg har bursdag om ni dager, i tillegg er det er jo ikke s veldig lenge til jul. En av de aller gyeste forberedelsene er drmme seg bort med helt urealistiske nskelister. Kanskje dere finner litt inspirasjon til julegaveshoppingen?


My birthday is coming up, also it's Christmas soon. And one of my favourite things to do is to make super long and super unrealistic wishlists. Maybe you can find some inspiration for your Christmas shopping?

Utfordringen med vre varm og fasjonabel p samme tid har for lengst begynt og jeg er fortsatt p jakt etter en stor og varm jakke. Og varme sko. Hvilke sko bruker dere nr snen har kommet?


The warm and stylish challenge is on and I'm still looking for a big and warm coat. And boots. What kind of boots do you prefer when the snow arrives?

Maison Martin Margiela x H&M by Sara Strand

MMM x H&M | Operahuset | H&M | Maison Martin Margiela | Film by Marie Nord

Jeg har stylet mine favoritter fra kolleksjonen til Maison Margiela for H&M og jeg kunne bodd i de deilige kashmir-genserne resten av vinteren. Til tross for at de er veldig oversized er de enkle, og ikke minst behagelige, ha p. Kolleksjonen er i butikk 15. novemeber og jeg anbefaler ta en titt p plaggene og tilbehret til herre ogs. Jeg falt for den hvite skinnskjorten, som jeg synes er minst like kul til jenter.


I've styled my favourites from the Maison Martin Margiela collection for H&M and I'm sure I could live in those super sweet cashmere sweaters for the rest of the winter. And although they're very oversized they're surprisingly easy, and comfortable, to wear. The collection is in stores the 15th of November and I recommend you to take a closer look at the pieces for men too. I fell in love with this white leather shirt which I think is just as good looking for women.

H&M SS13 preview

I dag var jeg innom showrommet til H&M for se p SS13-kolleksjonen og det er virkelig mye glede seg til! Ananas-elsker som jeg er, har det havnet bde ananas-skjorte og ananas-reringer p nskelisten.


Today I stopped by the H&M showroom to take a look at the SS13 collection. And since I love pineapples there's now both a pinapple t-shirt and pineapple earrings on my wish list.

Suddently I think it's a lot fun to match editorials and food. This is the result.

Today I went for warm and comfy. Shoes from Sixtyseven, jeans from Weekday, jacket from Dobber and scarf from Acne made it happen.
