24 HOURS IN PARIS

March 27, 2017
paris (6 of 16)

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?

MONTHLY FAVOURITES #34

monthlyfavourites (1 of 10)

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

February 17, 2017
IMG_8136

…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

February 10, 2017

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

VALENTINE’S DAY WISH LIST: TOP 5 PICKS HIM & HER

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)…

THE THRILL OF UNBOXING

February 3, 2017
jaeger-new (10 of 18)

I am sure I am not the only one who gets ridiculously excited when a new package arrives. The trembling excitement, the nervous thrill (hoping that I will love it as much as I think I will) and the knowing justification that I have (hopefully) just made a really good investment. Packaging (and really good packaging) is too often underrated. Personally, I always remember my initial first impression when I receive a branded delivery; and for any future orders, I more often than not opt for the retailers that offer that really thorough, high quality and consistently good presentation. Sure, we all want to unravel, and get to the content sooner rather than later; but sometimes it´s the actual thrill of opening a really beautiful box and sifting through the layers of silky smooth tissue paper, which is the real excitement…

Do you believe in love at first sight? Personally, I´m not so sure. But I definitely believe in having an out-of-the-ordinary feeling when you meet “the one”. From my side? The moment I met Sam, I wasn’t really looking for a relationshipso I was kind of oblivious to any of those kind of feelings… All I vividly remember, is that he gave me the warmest feeling straight away. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it at the time, but everything about him was instantly genuine; he made me feel safe and confident (always a good start)… Continue Reading

EASING INTO 2017

January 13, 2017
marylebone-4-of-17

Apologies for the sporadic radio silence – I am still easing into January pretty gently (anyone else with me?). Most of my family are still over from Norway, and in-between meetings up in town and catching up on work and goal setting for 2017 – I have been enjoying lots of long walks in the park, and currently on Day 13 of 31 Days of Yoga (which is definitely helping to ease those January blues). On a more sartorial matter; I am feeling pretty un-inspired to be totally honest, and keeping the palette mostly black and neutral (no real shock there, I guess) – with the added sparkle of some fun sunnies and my favourite designer bags.

Sartorially, I´m slightly confused at the moment.. I was really embracing the freezing crisp weather (I´m Norwegian, after all) and beaming sunshine the other week, but now, with the relatively freakishly warm weather (sometimes mixed with rain) – I am finding it so hard to dress! All I really (really) want, is to wrap up in big woolly jumpers and my chunky coats; feel real cold, and then head back into my toasty house to keep cozy… Or is it just me?!  Continue Reading
