SUMMER EVENT DRESSING WITH SELFRIDGES

April 24, 2017

´Tis the season, for all those dreamy summer events, with weddings, races and al fresco soirees… And as much as I love it, the pain is always the same, every single year… What to wear? I try not to go overboard and buy a new outfit for every event; but I also don´t want to always resort to the same dresses on rotation every season. Hence when springtime arrives, I tend to add 2-3 new outfits into the mix, injecting some fresh new styles into my more formal wardrobe collection… I have several weddings coming up, so I headed to my go-to destination for dresses and smart outfits, Selfridges, and managed to score the perfect stylish, yet soft and feminine summer outfit (the ideal combination).  Continue Reading

A SUMMER WARDROBE TWO-PIECE

April 19, 2017
IMG_5095

Pink is all the rage this summer – from bright pastels, shades of dark fuchsia to dusty pink (my personal favourite). Granted, pink can be a tricky colour, and not everyone´s cup of tea; with the risk of looking too girly or feminine. But when I spotted this perfect two piece linen suit from Tu Clothing – the ideal investment for the summer, be it for any upcoming events or just as a smart day-to-day alternative – it was love at first sight… With the more relaxed androgynous fit – combined with a muted soft pink, it pretty much ticks all the right boxes for me (not to mention it being an absolute steal).  Continue Reading

April´s in full swing, and I am loving the Spring vibes in the city! Although we´re still having some colder days in-between, so I haven´t packed all my warm jumpers and coats away (just yet). Either ways, it´s still so nice to be wearing my favourite ripped boyfriend jeans with my ankles out… It´s the little things which make all the difference, right?  Continue Reading

This post has been long awaited (and requested).

FRAGRANCE COMBINING WITH JO MALONE LONDON

March 29, 2017
jomalone (8 of 11)

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with one of my favourite British fragrance brands, Jo Malone London. Being a Londoner for nearly 8 years now, I find myself fiercely loyal to local, heritage brands – and Jo Malone is no exception. It epitomises all things British – class, tradition, consistency (a very British trait), yet with constant innovation… One of their latest campaign launches, is the power of Fragrance Combining. I mean, it totally makes sense; why wouldn’t you want to mix two of your favourite scents together? The best of both worlds.  Continue Reading

24 HOURS IN PARIS

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being whisked away to Paris by French skincare brand, Darphin. Albeit a quick visit, the agenda was still nothing short than heavenly – including lots of eating, drinking, spa time and some afternoon free-time to explore the city (which just happened to have the dreamiest Spring feeling on the day we went) – not to mention a late night motorbike tour of the city! Paris is still one of my all-time favourite cities in the world; to me, it has it all. Class, sophistication, edge, vibrancy, beauty and tradition. What´s not to love?

Ok, I know I keep saying it every time, but seriously – where is this year going?! How is it already end of March? 2017 is just flying away… But I for one am more than ready for Spring. It´s my favourite season by far. Gone are the days of wanting it too hot and balmy (as in, I wouldn’t complain with a few of those days right about now) – but Spring has that refreshing air of newness. We start ditching the layers, bare a bit more skin, and have that constant air of curiosity for the new season…

A TOUCH OF BOHO FOR SPRING

March 13, 2017
Debenhams-AnneliBush (11 of 16)

I don´t know what it is. Come Spring and Summer time, I always, without fail, have a clear and straight course towards the more bohemian collections (anything with lace or embroidery, I am sold). If you´ve been reading my blog for a while, it´s pretty apparent that my style is pretty minimal and clean overall, with a definite Scandinavian influence. Funnily enough, my clothing style, is a direct reflection of my interior style. If you read this post last week, I was talking about how my decoration at home, is mainly minimal, clean and contemporary, yet with injections of a more relaxed and bohemian touch. So there you have it; I am a true Scandi-Queen at heart (but my knees always go weak when I see something with a touch of boho)…

THE SARTORIAL BALANCE GAME

March 10, 2017
IMG_8265

You now I´m all about contrasts when it comes to my personal style. Never too girly or feminine, never too masculine or edgy – a balance of the both, takes me straight to my sartorial comfort zone. And in the end of the day, it´s all about being comfortable and feeling good in what you’re wearing right. Because if you don´t, what´s really the point? We all know by now, that one always tends to look better in an outfit, if one really owns it – right?

THE REVIVAL OF SPORTY SPICE (ANNO 2017)

March 4, 2017
IMG_8243

Sporty Spice was always my fave (although I had a soft spot for Posh Spice too), and during my early teens when the Spice Girls were at it´s peak; I wore tracksuits, platforms and high sling pony tails like there was no tomorrow. I mean, all of these components into one outfit was never a good look (let´s be honest) – but that´s not to say I don´t still have a bit of a soft spot for some of the more active styles which has come with the ´Sports Luxe` trend over the past few years…

TOP 10 TIPS TO DETOX YOUR WARDROBE (TRIED & TESTED)

February 27, 2017
wardrobe (15 of 15)

Believe it or not, I regularly clear out my wardrobe… I mean, although I´m fortunate to now have the most space I have ever had previously, with my walk-in-wardrobe – it´s not actually the space that´s been the real issue. It´s the visibility to see more clearly what I have in my wardrobe (which pre-detox, was not always an easy task – trust me), so I not only get to wear more of the pieces I truly love and adore – but to always make it easier to dress myself every day, instead of dragging out piece after piece on the floor out of frustration (yes, I am one of those)…

BACK TO BLACK AT LFW

February 23, 2017
IMG_8215

I know – I was all about embracing some lightness and colour just the other week, but let´s face it – black is classic. It´s chic. It´s edgy. And you can still totally play around within an all-black colour palette; just mix up different textures, such as lace, fur (faux, obviously), leather, suede, cotton – and be even more adventurous with the various styles, shapes and cuts. Who said black was boring? Point example being in one of my favourite looks from London Fashion Week…

How is it nearly March already? 2017 is going far too quick for my liking (although I´m loving the sudden burst of the warmer, spring weather). Needless to say, I am still firmly rooted within my darker and more tonal colour palette, but I am getting pretty excited for all the fresh colours that are hitting the stores! But for now, here are the classic (and tonal) pieces that I am loving, as well my latest beauty must-have´s, and other favourite trinkets…

GIRLY VS. EDGY

…this is the question. But why not merge them both? Which is pretty much my favourite way of dressing anyways; mixing androgyny with feminine frills = the perfect balance. How I do this? Well, it´s all about mixing over-the top and contrasting pieces, balanced out with a few more neutral additions. This outfit, is the perfect example… Continue Reading

THE WHITE SHIRT: 3 WAYS TO STYLE THE CLASSIC WARDROBE ESSENTIAL WITH GANT

February 15, 2017
IMG_7882

I talk a lot about wardrobe classics on my blog. The reason being that I am a true believer that if you invest wisely in some core essentials and styles; your day-to-day dressing will become so much easier. These ´wardrobe classics` are not necessarily the most interesting pieces, and more often than not, simple and clean styles – however, they will no doubt form the basis of your look and style you’re going for; be it minimal, casual, edgy or chic. One of my personal go-to iconic buys, is the white shirt. Personally, I don´t think you can ever have enough of this piece; be it the oversized boyfriend shirt, slim fit, long, cropped, wide… It can be worn in so many different ways, hence why it´s such a great investment.  Continue Reading

GINGHAM & CAMEL

I´ve got a feeling gingham is going to be huge this year. And although I´d originally intended wearing this skirt more into the spring season – I´ve kind of had enough of my tonal and dark winter wardrobe – and been craving a fresh injection with some prints and lighter spring colours. But nothing too drastic; so this outfit was just the perfect middle ground – with the muted two-tone camel, and some classic monochrome brights…  Continue Reading

We´re celebrating our 9th Valentine´s Day together this year (can you believe it!?) and as a couple, it´s something we´ve always recognized. I mean, yes, one should celebrate each others love every day, not just on this single day, but with every day life and stresses come in the way, it can be too easy to forget to make that extra effort. So it´s nice having this one day a year, aside from birthdays and Christmases, for another opportunity to really give each other that extra attention – be it with a sweet card, a bunch of flowers, a romantic meal (brownie points if he organises it, or even makes it!), or that extra special wrapped gift… Which by no means is a must or a necessity, but you know, just because… So from bigger to smaller gifts – Sam and I have together chosen our Top 5 Picks for Him & Her, in collaboration with NET-A-PORTER and MR PORTER (in other words, you know it´s going to be good)…
