Det eneste sikre nr jeg ikke aner hva jeg skal ha p meg; helsvart og skinn.

-

The only safe thing to do when I don't feel like wearing anything at all: all black and leather.

Her kommer dagens antrekk fra lesund! Det er et par hakk varmere her enn i Oslo, s det var en glede kunne ta p seg denne jakken igjen.

-

Here's an outfit update from lesund! It's even a bit warmer here than in Oslo, so it was a pleasure to finally wear this jacket again.

Smells like rain

Jeg er veldig glad i duftene til CLEAN og i julegave fikk jeg denne. Plutselig er det helt riktig lukte regn i romjula mens det snr utenfor. Kjempedeilig! Har dere noen parfymefavoritter?

-

I love CLEAN perfumes and I got a new one under the Christmas tree this year. Suddently it feels OK to smell like rain during Christmas while it's snowing outside. Delicious! Do you have any perfume favourites?

Jeg vil bare nske dere alle en god jul! Hper dere fr en herlig julekveld.

I just want to wish you all a merry Christmas! Hope you'll have a great evening.  

Light blue for spring

1. Jil Sander 2. MIH Jeans 3. Acne 4. Stella McCartney 5. Stella McCartney 6. Acne 7. Sherrif & Cherry 8. Ray Ban.

Er det en farge jeg har tenkt satse p i vr, s er det lysebltt. Det er s utrolig fint sammen med solbrun hud og passer til overraskende mye. Har dere noen farge som dere har ekstra tro p til sesongen som kommer?

-

If there's one colour I'm going to bet on this spring, it's light blue. It looks so good with tanned skin and goes with almost anything. Do you have any colour that you're thinking more about than others this spring?

Little black bag

Jeg digger sm skuldervesker og lakk er absolutt ikke nederst p listen det heller. Gleder meg til gjre vinterantrekkene litt morsommere med denne nye klassikeren, the little black bag! Jeg fant den her.

-

I love small shoulder bags and patent is definitely on the top of my list too. I can't wait to make the winter outfits a bit more exciting with this new classic, the little black bag! I found it here

That Christmas feeling

Dagen etter at jeg la ut bilde av denne genseren, s fant jeg nesten akkurat samme hos Zara. Verdt legge fra seg dunjakken for ta bilde av den!

-

The day after posting a photo of this sweater I found almost the same at Zara. Worth skipping the down coat to capture that!

Rose gold

DYRBERG/KERN | LEAF | 21DIAMONDS

Jeg har styrt unna gull s lenge jeg kan huske og de f gangene jeg har lurt meg selv til kjpe noe, s har det endt opp nederst i skuffen etter et par gangers bruk. N er imidlertid de to frste tingene i rosegull endelig p plass og jeg liker det kjempegodt! Jeg har jo et par armringer fra Dyrberg/Kern fra fr som jeg bruker nesten hver dag, s nr jeg fant dette var det ingen tvil. Slv og rosegull fungerer s bra sammen ogs. Den superenkle tynne ringen er fra Leaf og jeg bestillte begge hos 21diamonds.no.

-

I've stayed away from gold as long as I can remember and the few times I've tricked myself into buying something, it always ends up in the buttom of my shelf. Rose gold however, is a new favourite. And now the two first items is finally here! I have a pair of bracelets from Dyrberg/Kern already, so there was no doubt in my mind when I saw this one. Silver and rose gold works so good together too! The super slim and minimal ring is from Leaf.

Jeg har sett hele fem sesonger Ally McBeal p altfor f uker, s i dag tenkte jeg at det var p tide dedikere et antrekk til Ally selv med litt for kort skjrt og formsydd blazer.

-

I've watched five seasons of Ally McBeal in too few weeks, so today I thought it was about time to dedicate an outfit to Ally her self with too short mini skirt and a tight blazer.

The sweatshirt

Photo/Stockholm Streetstyle.

Jeg har hatt sweatshirts p nskelisten lenge, men n merker jeg at jeg trenger et alternativ til strikkegenserne. For selv om strikkegensere er favorittplagget nr det er kaldt ute, s kan det bli litt kjedelig i lengden. Og det beste med sweatshirts er at de funker like bra hjemme i sofaen som til baggy bukser eller skjrt. Favorittkombinasjonen er likevel lysgr sweatshirt og skinnskjrt.

-

I've had sweatshirts on my list for so long, but now it's time to find an alternative for those knits. Because although knit is my favourite during winter, it's kind of boring to wear knit and only knit. And the best thing about sweatshirts is that it works just as good when chilling at home as it does with baggy jeans or skirts. My favourite combination is light grey sweatshirt with leather skirts, though. 

20 sale favourites under 300$

1. Alexander Wang 2. Zoe Karssen 3. Sonia Rykiel 4.  Callula Lillibelle 5. Pour la Victoire 6. Acne 7. Alexander Wang 8. Acne 9. Jil Sander 10. Acne 11. Acne 12. Maison Martin Margiela 13. Karl 14. 3.1 Phillip Lim 15. Causse Gantier 16.  T by Alexander Wang 17. Kenneth Jay Lane 18. Trussardi 19. Kenzo 20. 3.1 Phillip Lim

Det er alltid ekstra gy klikke seg innom net-a-porter etter at salget har begynt. For plutselig er ikke sko fra Alexander Wang og basics fra Acne s ubehagelig dyrt likevel. Jeg har plukket ut 20 salgsfavoritter fra en fin haug nettbutikker til under 300$. Alts rundt 1500 NOK. Merker at jeg gjerne skulle brukt 35 eller 40 i sko akkurat n!

-

It's always more fun to pay net-a-porter my daily visit after the sale starts. Because suddently shoes from Alexander Wang and basics from Acne isn't so damn expensive anymore. I've picked my 20 sale favourites under 300$ from a bunch of online stores. I just wish I was a 35 or 40 in shoes right now!

I Oslo snr det tett i tett og det var bare flaks at vi fikk tatt et par bilder mellom snbygene. Det er imidlertid ikke noe som er s koselig som sn i frjulstiden, s litt ekstra utfordringer med antrekk og bilder gjr absolutt ingenting.

-

It's snowing like crazy in Oslo today and we were lucky to even manage to get a couple og photos. Still, nohting is as nice as snow during Christmas, so I can definitely live with a few more challenges. 

Olive green for winter

Photo/Tommy Ton & Hippie Hippie Milkshake.

I det siste har jeg hatt skikkelig dilla p olivengrnt og jeg har kommet frem til at det m vre den perfekte fargen legge til vinterantrekkene. Favorittkombinasjonen m vre olivengrnt sammen med sort skinn. Olivengrnne parkaser blir jeg heller aldri lei.

-

I'm crazy for olive green these days and I've decided that this must be the perfect addition to the winter outfits. My favourite combination is olive green and black leather. I'll never get tired of olive green parkas either. 

Fashionable interior

Det kommer nok ikke som noe sjokk at jeg er en tilhenger av rene linjer og minimalisme nr det kommer til interir ogs. Jeg hadde selvflgelig ikke takket nei til et par vesker og sko fra Maison Martin Margiela, men akkurat n har jeg mer lyst p litt fasjonabelt interir. De russiske dukkene er favoritten. Store, flotte og lette plassere. Hvordan er dere med dere? Ser dere noen sammenheng mellom klesstilen og interiret?

-

I guess it's no surprise that I like clean lines and minimalisme when it comes to interior too. Maison Martin Margiela is great on fashion, but right now I would really love some fashionable interior. The Russian dolls are my favourite, they're so big and beautiful! How about you guys? Do you see any connection between your personal style and your interior?

Det er fortsatt iskaldt ute og med -13 grader er det utrolig deilig endelig ha en dunjakke i hus. Uvant plutselig style denne typen jakker, men en norsk vinter uten gr ikke.

-

It's still freezing outside and with -13 degress it's really nice to finally own a down coat. A bit weird to suddently be styling this kind of coat, but a Norwegian winter without is impossible. 

New classics with a twist

Ray Ban Pocket.

Jeg var kjempeglad nr jeg endelig fikk kjpt denne klassikeren fra Ray Ban, men neste klassiker p listen var pilotbriller. Det har jeg egentlig alltid styrt unna siden jeg har veldig lite ansikt, men disse satt som et skudd. Ogs er det jo utrolig praktisk at man kan ha dem i lomma. De svarte forblir favoritten, men det er veldig fint kunne variere litt.

-

I was so pleased when I finally bought this classic from Ray Ban, but the next classic was a pair of pilots. I haven't been a big fan since I got a really small face, but these fitted just perfect. Of course it's really nice to be able to have them in your pocket too. The black wayfarers are still my favourite, but it's so nice to be able to vary a little.

Jeg har egentlig alltid hatt litt pologenserfobi, men i fjor ble jeg omvendt. N er det et av mine yndlingsplagg og i dag fant jeg hele to nye hos Bruuns Bazaar i Riddervolds gate. De blir nok se p bloggen snart!

-

I've had a little turtleneck fobia, but last year it ended. Now it's one of my favourites during fall and winter. Today I actually brought home two new ones from Bruuns Bazaar. Bet they'll show up in here soon!

Med -16 grader kan man virkelig si at vinteren har ndd Oslo. Og til tross for litt kalde tr gikk det overraskende bra. Flere lag med ull er virkelig mitt tips nummer én til fasjonable vinterantrekk.

-

Today we've had -16 degrees in Oslo, snds except cold toes I aatually stayed warm. Several layers of wool is my number one tip for fashionable winter outfits!

Korres

Etter ha lest mange fine ord om Korres hos Camilla Pihl kjpte jeg et par produkter for teste nr jeg var p ferie i Hellas. Etter det har jeg ftt helt dilla! De lukter fantastisk, funker fantastisk og fles fantastisk. Siden det er greske produkter kostet de jo bare halvparten av den norske prisen der, men jeg har et tips til dere: denne Ebay-butikken. Jeg har bestilt fra den selv og kan absolutt anbefale den. Ellers finner dere mange andre butikker p Ebay som selger Korres en del rimeligere enn i Norge ogs.

-

After reading a lot of warm words about Korres at camillapihl.no, I bought a couple of products to test when I was on vacation in Greece. Now I'm hooked! They smell fantastic, work fantastic and feel fantastic. Since it's greek products they were a lot cheaper in Greece, but I have a tip for you guys: this Ebay store. I've ordered from it myself and I can really recommend it. Also there's a lot of other stores with Korres products on Ebay too.
