Black is the New Black

I’m all for colours, but this spring I’ll go for black and beige. This are my three must-haves- a Max Mare bare back dress that can be used at the office with a jacket over, then head to an after hour drink session with the bf or the girls, Carrie style- in my case chances are I’m either dead tired and in a desperate need of a nap or I need to walk Sammish, but hey, we can all dream, right? 😉

Spring wear

I’m ready for spring! It comes as no surprise that I’m not a fan of winter- dark, cold and yucky, sometimes all three in one bite. I long for brighter days and fewer clothes on my back. Everything itches, from wool to merino and cashmere, it’s like my skin has had it with all this covering it up in layers!Skjermbilde 2017-01-24 09.36.50.png

Spring wardrobe

There hasn´t been much sign of spring in Oslo yet, but yesterday I could smell it for the first time, through my bedroom window, as I´m lying in bed down with a cold.

Spring always gets me in the mood for a change and since change is all I´ve been through lately, now I´ll concentrate on the harmless changes, like a seasonal wardrobe and the likes. 1221176106001-a-stresa_normal Continue reading

Bucharest

I asked my doctor some years ago if he´s sure I´m not bipolar and he said yes. But while re-reading what I wrote yesterday, I can´t help but wonder if I should get a second opinion. 😉

Today I´m fine. I spent a fortune at Max Mara and Stefanel, but that´s not the reason. The sun is shining and I´m in love with Bucharest again. It´s always been a constant in my life and right now I need as many constants as possible.

Fall fashion

I´m still on a self-imposed shopping ban, but that doesn´t stop me from making wish lists as I used to do back when I was 16! My style is pretty classic, I try investing in key pieces, so I don´t need new stuff all the time, but I still feel the need to “reinvent” myself from time to time. This is what caught my eye lately:

  1. Max Mara camel coat
  2. Joseph- Charlie wool and cashmere-blend skirt
  3. 3. Iris and Ink- Thea cotton boyfriend shirt

4. Raoul- Chunky-knit cardigan5. Jil Sander- Leather-trimmed suede boots

What do you think?

Max Mara

Max Mara is my all time favorite brand and their timeless dresses make my heart skip a beat whenever I see them. So what better day to post these beauties than on a Monday, and a rainy/snowy one moreover? The weather Gods still haven´t decided if it´s winter or spring, one thing is certain though, keep inside and dream of palm trees, if you can! And while dreaming of summer, take a look at some dresses that would make a grown man cry! 😉 Whether you´re a smart business woman, a sporty or a classic gal, there´s something here for everyone! These would be my choices if money was no issue. 😉 Wish I had a bottle of prosecco to drown my longing while we´re at it!
